My Top 15 picks
1. The Truth About Cancer
~ What You Need to Know About Cancer’s History, Treatment,
by Ty M. Bollinger
After losing seven members of his family to cancer over the course of a decade, Ty set out on a global quest to learn as much as he possibly could about cancer treatments and the medical industry that surrounds the disease.
He has written this book to share what he’s uncovered—some of which may shock you—and to give you new resources for coping with cancer in your life or the life of someone you love. As Ty explains, there are many methods we can access to treat and prevent cancer that go well beyond chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery; we just don’t know about them. The Truth about Cancer delves into the history of medicine—all the way back to Hippocrates’s credo of “do no harm”—as well as cutting-edge research showing the efficacy of dozens of unconventional cancer treatments that are helping patients around the globe.
You’ll read about the politics of cancer; facts and myths about its causes (a family history is only part of the picture); and the range of tools available to diagnose and treat it.If you’re facing a cancer diagnosis right now, this book may help you and your health-care provider make choices about your next steps.
If you’re already undergoing conventional treatment, it may help you support your health during the course of chemo or radiation. If you’re a health-care provider and want to learn all you can to help your patients, it will expand your horizons and inspire you with true stories of successful healing. And if you just want to see cancer in a new light, it will open your eyes.
Jackie’s recommendation: I would start with Ty’s “A Global Quest 9 Part Docu-Series.” Sign up for his mailing list and learn when his free viewing is offered. The series offers a great overview of cancer, its history, treatments. You will be blown away by what you learn!
A GREAT place to start your cancer healing journey!
2. Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips
by Kris Carr
Actress and photographer Kris Carr thought she had a hangover, but a Jivamukti yoga class didn’t provide its usual kick-ass cure. A visit to her doctor confirmed her “liver looked like Swiss cheese,” covered with cancerous tumors.
She entered trench warfare (wearing cowboy boots into the MRI machine, no less), vowing, “Cancer needed a makeover and I was just the gal to do it!” She began writing and filming her journey, documenting her interactions with friends, doctors, alternative “quacks,” blind dates, and other women with cancer—sadly a growing group.
CRAZY SEXY CANCER TIPS gathers the lessons learned and advice offered from Carr’s own journey, as well as the experiences of her cancer posse. Full-color photos accompany personal stories and candid revelations in this scrapbook of advice, warnings, and resources for the cancer patient.
Chapters cover your changing social life, dating, sex, and appearance; essential health tips on how to boost your immune system; recipes; medical and holistic resources; and information on young survivor support groups. The resulting book is a warm, yet informative tool for any woman newly diagnosed with the disease and for those who love them.
Jackie’s recommendation: Check out her many other books that are written with a light, uplighting and humorous flare. I feel like Kris is my friend from reading her books.

9. Cancer Free! Are You Sure?
by Jenny Hrbacek, RN
This is the “go-to” book for cancer detection tests. It is changing the way the world detects cancer. Americans are led to believe the only way to discover cancer is to wait for a tumor to grow big enough to see it with a mammogram, PSA screening, or PET scan. This is DEAD WRONG. These tests are late diagnostic. By the time a lump or bump is discovered, it has most likely been growing for 7-10 years. This book is the road map for how to detect cancer years before standard tests do. If you are in treatment, this book also tells you how to avoid being subjected to the conventional one-size-fits-all cancer treatment. You can find out what drugs and natural therapies will be effective for your specific cancer and tailor a personal program for you.

Such as eliminating sugars from your diet (which feeds cancer cells). Vitamin C therapy and other treatments to name a few.
11. The Cancer Cure That Worked
~ 50 Years of Suppression
by Barry Lynes
A detailed account of Rife’s inventions and discoveries is the subject of The Cancer Cure That Worked. This startling book documents events from 1913 to the time of Rife’s death in 1972. Rife was an optical engineer and technician of great skill. His first success was the building of the Universal Microscope in the late 1920s. With it he was able to view the living cancer virus — a feat our modern, high-powered electron microscopes still cannot do. His microscope used many quartz prisms and lenses, placed to compensate for losses of refraction due to air. This enabled him to view far tinier particles than had ever been seen before.
He invented the “Rife Machine” which is bio-electro therapy. His machine is making a come-back after being illegal for many years.
12. Waking the Warrior Goddess
by Dr. Christine Horner, MD, FACS
Christine Horner, M.D., has the prescription: Take healthy organic foods, add a good dose of certain supplements, get the rest and exercise we need, and avoid those things that are bad for our bodies.
We each have a Warrior Goddess in us, and it’s time to set her free. A pioneer who pushed through federal and state legislation ensuring that breast reconstruction after a mastectomy would be paid for by insurance companies, Dr. Horner lost her own mother to breast cancer. She decided then that her mother’s death would not be in vain. Something good would come from it. This legislation was her first gift to her mother’s memory, and this book is another.
Using the metaphor of the Warrior Goddess, this book explains something that Ayurveda describes as our “inner healing intelligence.” It also explores the various foods and supplements that can enable women to successfully fight breast cancer and claim the healthy body that should be theirs. Dr. Horner tells readers what to avoid and what to embrace, what will poison the Warrior Goddess and what will feed her and what she needs to thrive.
13. Radical Remission
~ Surviving Cancer Against All Odds
by Kelly A. Turner, Ph.D.
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.
14. Heal Your Mind
by Mona Lisa Schulz, M.D., Ph.D. with Louise Hay
This one-of-a-kind resource combines cutting-edge science with compassion and wisdom to offer answers we can really use. Uses the three-pronged healing approach that Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz and Louise Hay pioneered together in All Is Well: Heal Your Body with Medicine, Affirmations, and Intuition. Here, it’s applied to aspects of the mind ranging from depression, anxiety, and addiction to memory, learning, and even mystical states. You’ll learn what’s going on in your brain and body when you feel sad, angry, or panicked; you have trouble focusing, reading, or remembering; a past trauma is clouding your mind in the present; and more.
And in each chapter, you’ll get a “virtual healing experience” through case studies in the All Is Well Clinic, where Dr. Mona Lisa uses medical intuition to pinpoint issues in a wide range of prototypical client histories and she and Louise offer solutions and affirmations to help restore well-being.
Today, we tend to think our minds and bodies need an endless array of expensive, ever-changing pharmaceutical interventions. In truth, medicines are just one approach to healing the mind; nutritional supplements also support mind-body health; and affirmations restore us to balance by changing the way we think.
