Most people accept that some cancers significantly shorten lives and medical treatment might offer more time before they die. Today I want to tell you about real people who have survived from cancers that in most people’s minds mean certain death. Firstly, these survivors did not accept their prognosis, and searched for other treatments. These survivors used nutritional therapies, supplements and did whatever they needed to so they could recover.

Paul Kraus was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 1997 and is the longest-surviving person who has recovered from mesothelioma in the world. 

Paul has also survived from metastatic prostate cancer and brain cancer. He wrote a best-selling book, called ‘Surviving Mesothelioma and Other Cancers’. You can read all about Paul on his website http://paulkraus.com/paul-kraus-author-survivor/ and see him briefly describe his experience on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1v9Jx_Sbl0 This man now has almost 20 years of experience of cancer treatments and offers anyone with mesothelioma an awful lot of knowledge – and the hope that it is possible to survive it.

Stories like Paul’s are not uncommon. Another person who has written about his recoveries from two cancers is an Australian man, Barry Thomson, who survived stage IV melanoma and bowel cancer. He wrote about how he cured himself in ‘Escape From Death Row – Cancer Jail, in a really easy to understand, down-to-earth way. After his recovery from melanoma, he was diagnosed with bowel cancer and once again cured himself, without drugs or chemotherapy. His book ‘Defeat Cancer – Like I Did Twice’ describes just how he did recover. His book also includes a lot of different cancer therapies he discovered along the way.

Another long-time cancer survivor – Doctor Ian Gawler, who, in 1975, as a young veterinarian and decathlon athlete, developed bone cancer and had his right leg amputated. The cancer returned later that year and he came very close to death, yet recovered and went on to found Australia’s first life-style based, cancer self-help and support program in 1981. He wrote what is now a classic ‘You Can Conquer Cancer’

Meditation is a big component of Ian’s healing and work. He was awarded the Order of Australia Medal for his services to the community in 1987. You can see Ian’s work through The Gawler Foundation website. Ian also kindly wrote the forward to my book, Good News for People with Bad News.

These show that it is within an individual’s capability to overcome cancers that are considered impossible to survive. There are many, many more stories like this, and the links in this post will lead you to some of them. With the right guidance and professional support, recovery even from serious and advanced cancer is possible. Take a look and prepare to be inspired!
