Dr Carl O Helvie, Second Guest on the Holistic Health Show, Will Talk About His Alternative Treatment of Lung Cancer 33 Years Ago

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009

mvc-171sDuring the last part of the Holistic Health Show, I will share my lung cancer treatment with you following a prognosis of 6 months to live by my physician 33 years ago. Refusing surgery and chemotherapy with such a prognosis I instead elected to use an alternative holistic approach. This was not only successful in facilitating my recovery but now� at age 77� I have no chronic illnesses or prescribed medications (the average for my age is 3 chronic illnesses and 5 prescribed medications).� I believe you can achieve similar results to mine and that is the goal of this show.

I am a registered nurse with two masters in public health and wellness (U. of California and Johns Hopkins U), and a doctorate in public health (Johns Hopkins U). I have 57 years experience as a nurse practitioner, author, educator, and researcher. During this time, I published 7 books, 55 articles, gave 58 research papers around the United States and Europe, received research grants up to $800,000, and served on national committees. � I received multiple awards and recognitions including the Distinquished Career Award in Public Health from the American Public Health Association.
