I was alerted to this important book when the inspirational Pam Popper recommended it in her video: Spontaneous Cancer Remissions. When Pam Popper recommends a book or a journal article, I tend to read it. I was not disappointed.
One of the most important decisions any cancer sufferer and their loved ones can take is to empower themselves with the information they need to make wise choices following the dreaded diagnosis. Kelly Turner's book provides much of the necessary information.
The book’s emphasis is on those diagnosed with terminal cancer. However, all of the factors identified have been shown to promote health in general and cancer specifically whether you are trying to prevent the disease, treat it or prevent a recurrence, whether or not you are using western medicine.
Turner surveyed over 1,000 people who have massively outlived a terminal cancer diagnosis and identified nine “key factors that can unlock your pathway to dramatic healing.”

As a ‘recovering materialist’ I was surprised that only two of the nine factors were physical and the rest were emotional or spiritual.
Each chapters unpacks a key factor and the common actions taken by those who had defied their diagnosis with a complete reversal of the disease and illustrates them with a case study. This format helps the book’s logical flow this should not obscure the fact that the power of radical remission resides in behavioural patterns that address all nine factors as an integrated whole.
Kelly Turner is continuing her work which is detailed on the Radical Remission Project Website which collates stories and experiences of those who have survived cancer against the odds. The information is not a substitute for a treatment plan but it might just provide a ray of hope to light up an otherwise dark situation.
