There is NO drug or treatments that can cure you like Jesus! Maybe that is why she is still alive?

I am so upset with Suzanne Somers. My Aunt did the alternative treatment in Reno with Dr. Foresight. Unfortunately, she lost her battle with breast cancer just two weeks ago. You would not believe the lies they told her. Suzanne actually did a interview with my Aunt during her stay for her Knockout book. After $100s of thousands of dollars later, my aunt is gone and Dr. Foresight would not return our calls, emails ....nothing before she passed to get her medical records.

Chemotherapy does not cure cancer it prolongs your life. But...what kind of a life? Chemo is a terrible thing to put your body through. The quality of life that you have after going through it is horrible to watch. I saw my mother struggle through chemo 4 different times within 4 years. It prolonged how long she was here, but her time here was spent going back and forth for the treatments that made her so much more ill. She was told not to eat this not to eat that to stay out of the public because her ability to fight even the slightest ANYTHING could kill her. Watching her go through all of that I can tell you that I WILL NOT GO THROUGH CHEMOTHERAPY. I would rather have the cancer take me or search out alternatives.

Please read either of the above reviews before running to get this book.

With her 18th book out, Suzanne Somers just wants to sell another book.
To "hmmmmmm" (above), I'm sorry about your mother's struggle through chemo. But not all cases are like hers, by far. I recently finished treatment for stage 3 breast cancer. Surgeries, radiation and months of chemo. I didn't feel so great at times but it was deffinitely doable and throughout the treatment I was thankful to have the treatment available to me and never once did I wish I could keep the cancer instead of treating it with chemo. I continued to work through chemo and radiation and being a mother to my children. I am greatful for science and for medical researchers. I believe in living a healthy life with good diet and excercise but I'm greatful for those in science who have worked for decades and will continue to work to find a cure for cancer, including those that developed chemotherapies that helped me be here today for me and for my family. If an alternative treatment can be scientifically proven to cure cancer or improve quality of life, I'm all for it. In the meanwhile, I'll stick to what works more often than not.

This was the same woman that said Patrick Swayze died because of cancer. She obviously doesn't know that pancreatic cancer has one of the lowest prognosis of survival.

It's painfully obvious that she's afraid of fading away to nothing and her only way of staying in the spotlight is to make wild claims and accusations.

I am a 2 yrs cancer survivor and agree with the person that says, you survive the cancer and chemo but your quality of life really changes. I am grateful that I am still alive so I can see my son grow and god willing my grandchildren be born. However, I've been an avid exercise and fitness person and now my bones ache from just getting out of bed, I am in menopause due to chemo, my next five years will consist of taking medicine everyday to help prevent the cancer from coming back and I'm consumed with thoughts of what will happen after those five years. I do agree chemo is poison that goes in your body.
