[MOL] Interesting books, Nancy, Steve

Steve, thanks for the new title. I will see if it available at our library
or buy it. I have done a lot of reading myself and really believe prolonged
fever and heat does kill cancer cells. I have undergone a few sweat lodge
treatments and use saunas whenever I can plus other lifestyle changes. The
first sweat lodge I attended was high heat for 3 hours and took courage to
stay in though they do open the flaps 4 times. Other books I have read and
helped me to remain as well as I can for as long as possible. 

Beating Cancer with Nutrition: Dr. Patrick Quillan
Allergic to the Twentieth Century, Peter Radetsky
Paradox and Healing, Greenwood and Nunn
Your Body Speaks Your Mind, Debbie Shapero
The Power of the Mind to Heal, Joan Borysenko, Ph.D (and other books)
Peace, Love and Healing, Dr. Bernie Siegel (and other books)
The Healer Within, Stephen Locke
Permanent Remissions, Robert Haas, (an easy read)
The 22 Non-Negotiable Laws of Wellness, Greg Anderson (and other books)
Any books by Dr. Abram Hoffer
