In her groundbreaking and inspiring book, Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds, Dr. Kelly A. Turner, founder of the Radical Remission Project, uncovers nine factors that can lead to a spontaneous remission from cancer—even after conventional medicine has failed.

While getting her Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkley, Dr. Turner, a researcher, lecturer, and counselor in integrative oncology, was shocked to discover that no one was studying episodes of radical (or unexpected) remission—when people recover against all odds without the help of conventional medicine, or after conventional medicine has failed.  She was so fascinated by this kind of remission that she embarked on a ten month trip around the world, traveling to ten different countries to interview fifty holistic healers and twenty radical remission cancer survivors about their healing practices and techniques. Her research continued by interviewing over 100 Radical Remission survivors and studying over 1000 of these cases.  Her evidence presents nine common themes that she believes may help even terminal patients turn their lives around.

Editor review

Overall rating 

Hats off to Kelly Turner for her objective investigation of the factors behind so-called spontaneous remissions of advanced cancer. This paradigm-shifting book provides radically new perspectives on what should be considered important in treating cancer. Many of the case studies are taken from people who have gone through the best that Western medicine can offer, and when they were sent home to die had nowhere else to turn but to their own research and determination to live. Others rejected radiation and chemotherapy at the outset. The stories in the book detail the steps taken by each individual to overturn their prognosis, and awaken the body’s amazing ability to repair itself.

What is so fascinating is that of the nine key factors in radical remission identified in the course of research, only two are physical – diet and supplements. All the rest have to do with the changing the emotional state of the individual. It has become common knowledge that sugars, refined grains, hydrogenated fats and pesticides are bad for the body, but stress, isolation and repressed anger, it turns out, can be just as toxic.

The implications for both treatment and prevention of cancers are profound. With the probability that over 1 in 3 people in the US will develop cancer in their lifetime, truly this is a book that needs to be read by medical professionals and laypeople alike.
