Exciting news! We have just launched the first issue of our online newsletter, ADVANCES IN CANCER TREATMENT. ADVANCES is a monthly online news publication about progress in treating cancer. In each issue, we feature up-to-date reports on promising new developments in the field of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). We also discuss important developments in the use of conventional oncology (surgery, radiation and chemotherapy). We interview leading figures in the field, and report on site visits in search of better treatments in the United States and abroad.
ADVANCES is intended for both health care practitioners and for informed laypeople who need to know the latest developments in the exciting field of integrative oncology.
For example, the inaugural issue contains an article on a new drug treatment for prostate cancer; a report on insomnia as it affects cancer patients; and the first part of a report on the CAM cancer clinics in the Greater Phoenix area, with an extended discussion of the new Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) facility in Goodyear, AZ.
ADVANCES is already different than everything else out there on the Internet. Our approach to treatments is based on the principle of friendly skepticism. We are driven by Sir Francis Bacon’s dictum that “Knowledge is Power” and that, in the field of cancer, power should ultimately reside in the hands of patients, their caregivers, and concerned practitioners.
Thus, our article on the new drug treatment doesn’t just repeat the blurb of the drug's manufacturer (as many media stories did). Instead, we probe the data to see if the drug actually improves survival or quality of life for affected patients. (Our findings may surprise you.) Our discussion of CAM clinics is also critical, when necessary. ADVANCES is the best way to keep track of my site visits to such clinics around the US and the world. Did you know, for example, that one of the world’s great experts on urological cancer is in a little-known private practice in Phoenix? The article on sleep disturbances not only discusses the surprisingly high risk of death from “hypnotics,” as shown in a recent study, but it proposes several less toxic alternatives, including one that I take myself.
I have negotiated an exclusive arrangement with the manufacturer of this supplement that will yield ADVANCES readers a remarkable 50 percent discount from the list price. This discount alone could quickly pay for the cost of your ADVANCES subscription.
We are totally independent. We have no connection with any profit-driven newsletter distributor or its investors. For that reason, we have no incentive to promote dubious fad treatments in order to boost subscription numbers or please investors. And we offer a money-back guarantee if you are dissatisfied.
I hope you will give ADVANCES a chance. You can subscribe now and receive the first issue:
With best wishes for your good health,
