Dr Francisco Contreras and Dr Arlene Donar will be guests on the Holistic Health Show this week. Its tax time and that is very time consuming for me. Thus, I must repeat a previous show that I hope you will enjoy. On the following show I will resume my back pain series.

Dr Contreras is the Medical Director, President and Chairman of the Oasis of Hope where they have treated over 100,000 cancer patients since opening in 1963 and have an active research program on effective interventions for different cancers. He is recognized internationally as a cancer expert who combines conventional and alternative treatments with emotional and spiritual support. Currently he oversees the treatment of 400 cancer patients annually.

Dr Contreras graduated with honors from the prestigious School of Medicine of the National Autonomous University of Mexico and continued studies at the University of Vienna, Austria where he specialized in surgical oncology and again graduated with honors. He received personal instruction from his father, Dr Ernesto Contreras, who was a pioneer in alternative medicine. Dr Contreras lectures frequently at Universities and Conferences throughout the United States, Mexico, Central and South America, Europe and Asia. He has authored 12 books on cancer including The Hope of Living Cancer Free, The Coming Cancer Cure, Fighting Cancer 20 different Ways, Dismantling Cancer, and his recently published Hope, Medicine, and Healing.

I will also talk briefly about my lung cancer experience 36 years ago when I was given 6 months to live by traditional cancer specialists and consequently chose an alternative approach to successful treatment. My focus will demonstrating the holistic approach I used that involved physical, mental and spiritual aspects.
