Healing Cancer with The Nervous System

Ten years ago, I wrote my first book about healing cancer, Tong Ren for Cancer. Now it is time to update it with new data; like a computer, it always needs updating. In my previous book, the healing theory for cancer focused on bioelectricity and the autonomic nervous system. My students and I used this theory and successfully healed many cancer patients. Today, I learned about another factor that can cause cancer - oxygen deficiency. This theory is not from my original studies, but from 1931 Nobel Prize winner Dr. Otto H. Warburg. ($25.00)
