“This book offers powerful insight in to the way nature can support and enhance our health both in general and specific to oncology support. A useful and easy to use reference guide and a must for anyone supporting people on an oncology journey. The level of evidence used is second to none and brings a confidence to both the clinical use of the information and the impact it can have on lives. I highly recommend this book and would suggest it becomes a key text within your reference book library, as it is a ‘go to’ for me in my clinical work. Congratulations Greg on this fantastic book, it is making a big difference in the world.”

I was personally excited to obtain a copy of your book Greg “Alternative & Integrated Oncology” at the ‘Natural Health Symposium on Cancer’ held in Auckland in March this year.

After 25 years in clinical practice as a Medical Herbalist & Naturopath we have worked with a lot of health conditions and specifically have experience in helping a lot of cancer patients and supporting the way in which they choose to take the cancer journey.

Greg’s book is a treasure trove of information. Thank you for writing such a wonderful reference and I have spent hours going through it and absorbing information, thanks for being so thorough especially around the ‘plant medicine references’ which I’m so passionate about.

I have referred to your book often in clinic when looking at various options for treating ‘specific cancers’, as we know how complex the decisions can be for someone that has been diagnosed with cancer. The way it has been so researched and referenced it is just so jammed packed full with good clear information that is so helpful when making informed decisions working with patients.

An example… I was researching to see how effective Laetrile from Apricot kernel pips is for a cancer patient who has bowel cancer, as I have used this before with successes.

Greg reminds us that “Zinc is absolutely essential in the Laetrile protocol, patients with low zinc levels do not absorb laetrile into their cells” plus to include the other co-factors that are necessary when doing this protocol.

Such essential information is shared here in his book and I would more than highly recommend it to any practitioner who is working in depth with cancer patients…all the best Greg.

Alternative and Integrative Oncology profiles hundreds of cancer therapy options ranging from herbs and nutrients, to cancer treatment vaccines, to treatments involving different forms of electromagnetic radiation and new surgical techniques.

Alternative and Integrative Oncology: The Reference Guide to Evidence based Cancer Therapies is an impressive contribution to the literature, indeed a monumental work, a comprehensive reference book that would be invaluable to any health professional who treats people with cancer.

This is a very comprehensive reference guide, and is the outcome of a five-year research project from Greg Fredericks, an independent naturopath not funded or influenced by corporate or special-interest groups.
Alternative and Integrative Oncology does not rate or recommend any particular treatment over another for any form of cancer. Its purpose is to briefly describe various treatments and the research that accompanies them, in order to improve outcomes. The treatment section has more than 300 descriptions listed alphabetically. Additional sections include a glossary; cancer types; cancer cell line reference index; human cancer cell types and proapoptotic agents; botanical plant sources and cytotoxic constituents; complementary homoeopathic remedies; notable people in cancer research; and quotes of interest. It was very heartening to see a section on the “cancer personality” and the mind-body connection, and a section on which food sources contain carcinogenic properties or substances. Everything is referenced, and the treatment section is the widest ranging I’ve ever seen. This is a book I’ll be using on a regular basis, and hoping to see its contents online in future, so it can be updated as new research comes to hand.

Alternative and Integrative Oncology is an invaluable clinic tool for any practitioner or researcher, who is pursuing alternative cancer treatments.

This well-researched book covers an extensive range of nutritional and herbal medicines and examines their relationships with cancer. The various dietary guidelines discussed are enlightening. Author, Greg Fredericks’ years of experience as a practising naturopath have enabled him to create a comprehensive resource for practitioners, which is easy to navigate.

Whether this book is used as a go-to reference guide in clinic, or the reader wishes to delve deeper into the history of cancer research pioneers, I highly recommend Alternative and Integrative Oncology.

An important feature of the text is the enormous amount of very practical, useful information in an alphabetically-arranged list of treatments and interventions to assist practitioners and cancer sufferers. It provides an efficient, quick reference guide to an impressive range of cancer therapies with an emphasis on evidence-based validation drawn from human and animal studies and case reports.

This is enhanced by a table at the back of the book that consists only of human cancer cell types and pro-apoptotic agents.

A practical overview of carcinogenic food and environmental sources of cancer provides helpful information and the remedies can also be used with conventional therapies to reduce side effects and improve outcomes.

Dr. Fredericks is to be congratulated on achieving such a detailed, evidence-based and clinically user-friendly work in a field of medical practice that impacts greatly on the lives of millions.
