| "A benchmark in our recognition of causal factors
that must be included in any cancer treatment and prevention.No oncologist,
medical professional, or cancer patient can afford to be ignorant
of these factors."

IMMUNE SYSTEM Here is how our normally operating immune
system detects and destroys cancer cells every day. A NORMAL
IMMUNE SYSTEM DESTROYS A CANCER CELL:
Normally our immune system recognizes cancer cells in our body
and kills them. Here, a squad of Killer T-Cells surround a cancer
cell, change their shape and chemically kill the cancer cell, leaving
behind nothing but the cancer cells skeleton.DAMAGED
Below is what happens when the negative emotions,
produced principally by the 6 Causes, create the biochemicals that
severly damage the immune system.
EMOTIONALLY DAMAGED IMMUNE SYSTEM TOO WEAK TO KILL CANCER:
Chronic stress by the 6 Causes can shrivel the thymus gland to
half its normal size, leaving it unable to produce adequate Killer
Cells. Here a lone, weakened lymphocyte tries to attack a cancer
cell. The cancer cells defensive bubbles push
off the weakened Killer Cell, thereby surviving to create more
Now, with the discovery of these 6 Unknown Causes of Cancer -
the negative emotions that cripple the immune system - it is
possible to reverse or prevent this immune system
Next to being lucky enough to receive the right medical treatment,
nothing is more important to long-term survival - and prevention
- than to eliminate the destructive, chronically elevated glucocortisol
levels produced by the chronic stress created by these six (almost
always unknown) psychological factors in ones life.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN IN THE CANCER PERSONALITY:
with the discovery of the existence of these Six Causes, and the
discovery of the biochemical changes they create in the body and
the immune system, we are finally in a position to understand why
a certain medical treatment or psychotherapy is successful, and
another is not.
More important, by removing these
Six Conditions from a patients life, we can fundamentally
change not only the quality of the patients life, but we
can also change the negative biochemistry being produced in the
patients body by these Six Conditions, thereby significantly
increasing the chances for successful long term remission -- and
prevention -- for those at risk of developing a cancer.
With this book the age old argument
as to whether or not the mind plays a role in causing, treating
- or preventing - cancer moves to a new plateau.
Here for the first time is...
...the exciting discovery of six unknown psychological conditions
that create the unique state of mind which causes very real physical
damage to the immune system. If these conditions can be recognized
and removed from the patients life, and are combined with
the correct medical treatment, the chances of more successfully
treating the disease are dramatically improved ... as are the
chances of preventing cancer if these conditions already exist
in ones life. (section 1)
...a detailed presentation of the most impressive evidence and
superbly reasoned proof to demonstrate conclusively that the
mind and the emotions create specific biological changes that
lead to the development of many cancers. This includes the biochemical
changes the mind causes in the brain and central nervous system,
as well as the endocrine and immune systems, right down to the
changes that take place in the cell itself. (section 2)
...an explanation of one of the most baffling mysteries of cancer
research: why a known cancer-causing agent, such as a papiloma
virus or the carcinogen from smoking, can be present in two individuals,
a cancer will develop in one person but not in the other? (chapter
...the reasons why one kind of socio-support group or psychotherapy
can be effective, and why another kind of therapy can be destructive.
It also shows that among the most destructive are some of the
most popular alternate therapies advocated by several best-selling
authors, as well as the additional therapies offered in some
of our most prestigious hospitals and cancer institutes. (chapter
10 and summary)
The discovery of these six psychological causes makes it possible
- for the first time - to answer some of the most baffling questions
about cancer, including what causes it, how to better prevent it,
and how to more effectively treat it, including such questions
if breast cancer is inherited, why is it that over 80% of the
women who will develop breast cancer this year will not have
a history of breast cancer in their family?
though cancers cluster in families, and though some rare forms
of cancer, like retina blastoma, are genetically inherited, most
cancers are not. However, these Six Factors are almost always
present in these cluster families, and it is these Six Factors
that are in fact inherited from one generation to
though our bodies produce cancer cells every day, our immune
systems immediately destroy them. Why all of the sudden does
the immune system suddenly fail and no longer destroy the cancer
why is it that if ten women go to the same doctor in the same
hospital and receive the same medical treatment for the same
breast cancer in the same stage of development (stage II), one
may survive a year, three may survive two years, four may survive
five years, and two may survive ten years or longer? Why is there
such a dramatic difference in their survival rates even though
they all had the same medical treatment?
why is that children adopted at birth develop the genetically
inherited diseases of their biological family -- except cancer?
Studies indicate adopted children develop cancer along the lines
of their adoptive families, not their biological one.
though with a few cancers there have been some spectacular increases
in survival rates, overall medicines fight against cancer
has been a dismal failure. Why is it that since 1950, after almost
a half century and untold billions of dollars in research, the
overall survival rate has increased only 11%, from 38% to 49%
... no better than a flip of a coin? Obviously medicine must
be overlooking something.
why is it that, as every doctor knows, a patients passionate
belief in the medical regimen prescribed occasionally produces
a spontaneous remission, even in the most advanced stages of
