Many cancer patients seek out complementary treatments, by some estimates up to 80 percent. In many cases these are either ineffective or dangerous. This work presents herbs, compounds, and supplements that have research and proven clinical applications to support patients in cancer recovery. It also details studies of CAM in cancer treatment, giving both positive and negative reports. There is a comprehensive annotated listing of CAM methods and medicinals from both Western and Chinese practice for use with cancer therapy, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy as well as for chemotherapy and radiotherapy side effects.

“Daniel Weber provides a useful reference source for practitioners, patients, and their carers, who seek to find out more about complementary medicine and its potential use in cancer”.
-Professor Alan Bensoussan, University of Western Sydney
“Chinese herbal medicine has a long history of use in oncology. Over the last 50 years it has been successfully integrated into Western oncology protocols in many hospitals and Universities in China. Daniel Weber’s research and translation of much of this literature brings important information to Western practitioners, both orthodox and complementary”.
