Some of these books have been recommended by Pam Stevens, whose book is on this list. Others have been taken from the booklist of Dr Janice-Ann Priest, a New Zealand doctor who wrote ‘Our Health At Risk’, 2003. The list includes books written from a political standpoint, as well as books which give healing help.
If you have cancer, or some other serious degenerative disease such as AIDS, or multiple sclerosis, then it is important to read as much as you can. This will give you encouragement, and help you in understanding the disease, and perhaps why you have succumbed to it. Reading about different treatments will also enable you to make an informed decision about what treatment you should have, what treatment will be practical for you, and who might be able to help you. I have included some of the books which I have found particularly good in understanding illness and curing it, for example Walter Last’s work.
