Nature’s Cancer-Fighting Foods: Prevent and Reverse the Most Common Forms of Cancer Using the Proven Power of Whole Food and Self-Healing Strategies by Verne Varona

cancer fighting foods

Based on a solid foundation of the healing properties of good nutrition, this book empowers readers with the information they need to make the best choices and to gain control over their total health and well-being – physical, emotional, and spiritual. While addressing the specific needs of those with a diagnosis of cancer, Varona explores the key factors that science and experience have shown to influence the path of prevention and recovery. Grounded in documented research from leading medical institutions – along with studies of the world’s healthiest populations – nutrition educator Verne Varona has developed a breakthrough nutritional and lifestyle programme for immunity building and cancer prevention and recovery. This book provides detailed diet and lifestyle modifications that will reinforce the body’s immunity and reduce cell-damage to an absolute minimum. While the bulk of this book is devoted to physical nutrition, eating the right foods is not the whole picture. No matter what course of treatment a patient may choose, clinical research and anecdotal testimony have shown that those who have embraced a range of self-healing choices not only see a positive impact on their physical and psychological well-being but inevitably enhance their chances of survival. The most influential of these choices are: life purpose; positive attitude; managing stress; sense of humor; love and social support; emotional expression; and faith. Along with good nutrition, a healthy lifestyle, and physical exercise, these choices contribute to a more comprehensive and complete healing.

A well written book with a great amount of information for those who have a desire and a passion to fight for their lives! Is this an all inclusive list, by no means, but it is an excellent primer for those getting ready to do battle for their life, or the life of a loved one.

Godspeed and Good Reads!

What You Need to Know about Islam and Muslims by George W. Braswell

islam

Geared toward both the student and the interested general reader, What You Need to Know About Islam and Muslims is an all-you-need-to-know-and-more book about the Islam. Written in simple language, this book describes to Christians the story of Islam and the Muslim people, and their aggressive plans to establish Islam in every culture.

An intriguing book on the knowledge about the religion of Islam and the Muslim practices. While this does not go truly in depth to explain doctrines of the beliefs, but what they believe overall. Touching on many of the discrepancies of the teachings about Jesus. Truly a remarkable work and truly a worthy read on the subject!

Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus: A Devout Muslim Encounters Christianity by Nabeel Qureshi

finding jesus

In Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, now expanded with bonus content, Nabeel Qureshi describes his dramatic journey from Islam to Christianity, complete with friendships, investigations, and supernatural dreams along the way.

Providing an intimate window into a loving Muslim home, Qureshi shares how he developed a passion for Islam before discovering, almost against his will, evidence that Jesus rose from the dead and claimed to be God. Unable to deny the arguments but not wanting to deny his family, Qureshi struggled with an inner turmoil that will challenge Christians, Muslims, and all those who are interested in the world’s greatest religions.

Engaging and thought-provoking, Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus tells a powerful story of the clash between Islam and Christianity in one man’s heart—and of the peace he eventually found in Jesus.

I found this book most extraordinary in it’s presentation of a Christian meeting a Muslim who is open minded, and vice versa. As both were willing to speak to one another freely and openly to discuss their beliefs and why they believed what they believed. This is the crux of the apologetic argumentation. That which Christians MUST be willing to do…know, understand, and both discuss and explain why they believe what it is that they believe. It is in this way that man will win his fellow man for God through such open dialogue and discussion. And it is not the argument, itself, which causes one to change their beliefs. Rather it is the Spirit of God who touches our hearts and guides us toward the answers we need. You may win a few people this way, but the majority will be won through the Holy Spirit!

An EXCELLENT book which was well worth the time to read!

Anticancer: A New Way of Life by David Servan-Schreiber

anticancer

When David Servan-Schreiber, a dedicated scientist and doctor, was diagnosed with brain cancer, his life changed. Confronting what medicine knows about the illness and the little-known workings of his body’s natural cancer ­fighting capacities, and marshaling his own will to live, Servan-Schreiber found himself on a fifteen-­year journey from disease and relapse into scientific exploration and, finally, to health.

Combining memoir, concise explanation of what makes cancer cells thrive and what inhibits them, and drawing on both conventional and alternative ways to slow and prevent cancer, Anticancer is revolutionary. It is a moving story of a doctor’s inner and outer search for balance; radical in its discussion of the environment, lifestyle, and trauma; and compelling and cautionary in its proposal that cancer cells lie dormant in all of us and that we all must care for the “terrain” in which they exist.

Advocating a sea change in the way we understand and confront cancer, Anticancer is a radical synthesis of science and personal experience, an inspiring personal journey, and certainly a guide to “a new way of life.” Anticancer tells us:

Why the traditional Western diet creates the conditions for disease and how to develop a science-based anticancer diet
How and why sugar and stress feed cancer and ways to achieve life balance and good nutrition to combat it
 ◊ Why the effects of helplessness and unhealed wounds affect our ability to restore health
 ◊ How to reap the benefits of exercise, yoga, and meditation
 ◊ How to minimize environmental toxins
 ◊ How to find the right blend of traditional and alternative health care

I found this book to be awesome in it’s candor and it’s presentation of much information we do not know about cancer. The author breaks cancer down to it’s most simple issue…a war waged against your body and with the enemy infiltrating your very brain center enticing it to stop the fight. In essence, you body allows for the cancer to take advantage of a weakness your body has permitted. But we can change that, to a degree and we can be ever vigilant in our fight to remain alive!

Angels: Ringing Assurance That We Are Not Alone by Billy Graham

angels

Yes, angels are real.They are not the product of your imagination.

If we had open spiritual eyes we would see not only a world filled with evil spirits and powers but also powerful angels with drawn swords, set for our defense.

Dr. Graham lifts the veil between the visible and the invisible world to give us an eye-opening account of these behind-the-scenes agents. This best-selling classic records the experiences of Dr. Graham and others who are convinced that at moments of special need they have been attended by angels. With keen insight and conviction, Dr. Graham affirms that:

God’s invisible hosts are better organized than any of the armies of man or Satan.Angels “think, feel, will, and display emotions.”Angels guide, comfort, and provide for people in the midst of suffering and persecution.At death, the faithful will be ushered by angels into the presence of God.

A great book which specifically details the use and applications of Angels, both in the bible and in our lives. Those special and strange things that occur within our lives are happening due to some initial cause. Angels are all around us to aid, guide, and protect us…God’s children.

Locke: Political Writings by John Locke, Gerald Green, David Wootton

Locke

John Locke’s Second Treatise of Government (c. 1681) is perhaps the key founding liberal text. A Letter Concerning Toleration, written in 1685 (a year when a Catholic monarch came to the throne of England and Louis XIV unleashed a reign of terror against Protestants in France), is a classic defense of religious freedom. Yet many of Locke’s other writings, not least the Constitutions of Carolina, which he helped draft are almost defiantly anti-liberal in outlook.

This comprehensive collection brings together the main published works (excluding polemical attacks on other people’s views) with the most important surviving evidence from among Locke’s papers relating to his political philosophy. David Wootton’s wide-ranging and scholarly introduction sets the writings in the context of their time, examines Locke’s developing ideas and unorthodox Christianity, and analyzes his main arguments. The result is the first fully rounded picture of Locke’s political thought in his own words.

The reason I read this book is one, I am a history buff and enjoy learning as much as I can about our founding of this nations as well as it’s founding fathers. And two, his writing were the founding principles upon which the Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, and the US Constitution were based. A brilliant mind, yet the writings and philosophies can be quite boring and drawn out if you are not into them.

Twelve Ordinary Men: How the Master Shaped His Disciples for Greatness, and What He Wants to Do with You by John F. MacArthur

Twelve Ordinary Men

Contrary to popular belief, we do not have to be perfect to do God’s work. Look no further than the twelve disciples whose many weaknesses are forever preserved throughout the pages of the New Testament. Jesus chose ordinary men – fisherman, tax collectors, political zealots – and turned their weakness into strength, producing greatness from utter uselessness. MacArthur draws principles from Christ’s careful, hands-on training of the original twelve disciples for today’s modern disciple – you.

John MacArthur has taken the twelve disciples and presented them as you and I! A phenomenal feat, in my opinion, because most people – such as you and I – place the twelve on a pedestal of spiritually great men. While that is true, when our Lord chose them to follow Him…they were exactly like you and I. Sinners, liars, cheaters, etc. Read and be amazed by this short, easy reading book!

Answers to Life’s Problems by Billy Graham

Answers to Lifes Problems

Imagine being able to sit down with Billy Graham and ask him for advice. In response to thousands of letters, Billy Graham offers guidance and answers to the most-often asked questions about every aspect of life, including relationships, ethics, psychological problems and spirituality.

These are collections of what people had written in to newspapers for him to answer…a spiritually guided “Dear Abby” in male form, if you will. I liken his candor and wisdom to that of the books of Psalms, Proverbs, Song of Solomon, and Ecclesiastes. Wisdom applicable to all people at different points in time of their lives. We can each glean much from Dr. Graham and as we grow more “youth challenged” in our lives, we tend to become wiser in some of our decisions. Especially those decisions with respect to our spiritual desires and need for guidance.

An Inconvenient Book: Real Solutions to the World’s Biggest Problems by Glenn Beck

inconvenient book

Now available in trade paperback, the #1 bestselling New York Times author Glenn Beck tackles some of our country’s biggest problems in this funny, outrageous, and entertaining book.

Glenn Beck believes that the reason why some of our biggest problems never seem to get fixed is simple: the solutions just aren’t very convenient. And as the host of a nationally syndicated radio show and a prime-time television show on CNN Headline News, Glenn Beck doesn’t care much about convenience; he cares about common sense.

Take the issue of poverty, for example. Over the last forty years, America’s poorest cities all had one simple thing in common, but politicians will never reveal what that is (or explain how easy it would be to change). Global warming is another issue that’s rife with lies and distortion. How many times have we heard that carbon dioxide is responsible for huge natural disasters that have killed millions of people? The truth is, it’s actually the other way around: as CO2 has increased, deaths from extreme weather have decreased. But that would never be shown in an Al Gore slide show.

Combining honesty with a biting sense of humor, An Inconvenient Book contains hundreds of these “why have I never heard that before?” types of facts that will leave readers wondering how political correctness, special interests, and outright stupidity have gotten us so far away from the common sense solutions this country was built on.

Though, this book came out around 2009 some, not all, material is a little dated; however, the solutions and ideas behind what Glenn Beck is discussing is still valid and in tact. An interesting read, funny at times, some freelance sarcasm splashed in there, with a big slap in the face of some much needed reality! God help us, as we cannot rely on the politicians to solve our problems…when will the people of America wake up to such a dose of factual reality? At this point…not certain they ever will! But we all have hopes and aspirations in our lives, that just happens to be one of mine! Open the book covers at your own risk and read it with an open mind.
