While the world continues to look for that one "magic bullet that will defeat all cancers, the fact is that modern medicine may already have the arsenal of weapons it needs to conquer this deadly killer. Perhaps all that is required is an innovative strategy that uses our undervalued weapons in a far more effective way. In BEYOND THE MAGIC BULLET: THE ANTI-CANCER COCKTAIL, Dr. Raymond Chang takes a penetrating look at a bold new way of treating and defeating the disease with what is already available today. The book begins by examining modern medicine's use of surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and hormone therapy in the war against cancer. It explains how conventional medicine now relies on a narrowly focused strategy of treatments that employs, at best, only one or two drugs or other therapies at a time. It then offers an approach based on the knowledge that certain off-label drugs and nutritional supplements are each somewhat effective against the disorder. By combining these therapeutic agents into a powerful "cocktail, doctors have found that they can simultaneously attack the cancer on many different levels and at several different angles, with the goal of overwhelming it and halting its spread. Dr. Chang not only discusses the effectiveness of the cocktail, but, also, provides an assessment of each of the most valuable agents that are available for the battle. The idea of the medical "cocktail is not new. For over a thousand years, traditional medical systems throughout the world have effectively used the multi-agent approach to restore health. And today, the most successful treatments for HIV and Hepatitis C are based on this simple concept. By detailing how this strategy can be utilised in the war against cancer, BEYOND TE MAGIC BELLET leads the way to a bright new future of hope and healing.
