His doctor was so taken that he asked Ernest how he did it. Ernest discussed writing about his experience to help other type 2 diabetics for which his doctor replied, “That is an excellent idea”.

Health/Self-Help – The Cancer Solution

The Cancer SolutionThe Cancer Solution
Taking Charge of Your Life with Cancer
By Jack C. Westman
Publisher: ArchwayPublishing
Published: February 2015
ISBN: 978-1480813083
Pages: 310
Genre: Health/Self-Help

The Cancer Solution: Taking Charge of Your Life with Cancer offers a usable handbook for cancer for both patients and health care professionals. Dr. Westman’s personal experience with cancer led him to extensively research the current state of cancer care. He found strategies and techniques outside of the mainstream cancer field that have shown promising results. His book empowers patients to take control of their life with cancer and to advocate for improving cancer research and treatment.

The Cancer Solution Sell Sheet (pdf)

From the Author:
“I wrote this book with four aims. The first is to give you a broad overview of the different forms of cancer treatment and cancer research in simple terms. The second is to provide enough technical details so that you can use this book as a reference for questions about specific aspects of cancer. The third is to stimulate your interest in complementing your cancer care. The fourth is to encourage you as a layperson or as a professional to become an informed advocate for federal and private funding of research that focuses on preventing and treating the underlying causes of cancer.

I am a psychiatrist, not an oncologist. I am an academic physician who has written eight professional books and four books for laypersons. I do my own background research to be as sure as I can that my writing is on solid ground. For this book, I have obtained critical reviews of its technical contents by oncologists and cancer researchers.

I believe that my perspective on oncology from the outside and as a firsthand observer of the best that oncology has to offer gives me the advantage of being free from biases that inevitably accompany being an insider in any field. In this respect, I always have appreciated the views that outsiders have of my own field─psychiatry.”

Recent Praise for The Cancer Solution:
“This book should be read as a requirement for anyone diagnosed with cancer. It will serve as a tremendous practical guide for cancer patients and their families.” – Thomas N. Seyfried, Professor of biology at Boston College and author of Cancer as a Metabolic Disease: On the Origin, Management, and Prevention of Cancer.

“This book is a “must read” for every adult as cancer remains our greatest enemy. If you have experience with cancer, via a family member or friend, once you start reading this book, it will be hard to put down.” – Peter L. Pedersen, Professor of Biological Chemistry & Oncology, Johns Hopkins University.

“Dr. Westman’s personal experience with cancer led him to extensively research the state of cancer care. Strengthening the body’s own immune system to prevent and control cancer has shown very promising results, but it is largely ignored by mainstream cancer research and treatment. If you care about winning the war on cancer, this book will motivate you to advocate for more funding for this line of research.” – Stephen L. Swanson, Past Chair of the Board of Directors of the American Cancer Society

“Dr. Westman’s book is amazing, creative, innovative, different, stimulating and outstanding.” -Bharat B. Aggarwal, Professor of Cancer Research, University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center.

Within Your ReachWithin Your Reach
by Chris Lynch and Michelle Tackabery
Publisher: Balboa Press
ISBN: 978-1452564449
Pages: 128
Genre: Self-Help

In 2008, Chris Lynch’s life was transformed in four dramatic days when he was hospitalized with diabetic ketoacidosis, hyperkalemia, and atrial fibrillation. Diagnosed with a blood sugar level of 1,469 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dl), Chris faced near-death and a lifetime of insulin dependence. Realizing his survival was a miracle made possible by God, Chris began a new journey into health and renewed faith, successfully reducing his insulin dependence from 120 units per day to zero.

Always a positive spirit dedicated to helping others, Chris determined to share his story with other people, along with a simple, powerful message: “Believe, Receive, and Reciprocate.” A dynamic and engaging speaker, Chris’ humor, down-to-earth approach, and unforgettable story come together in this book.
