Discover 100s of treatments and strategies to help you recover fully from cancer.

Scientific studies have shown time and again that standard cancer treatments such as surgery, chemo and radiation do not extend survival for most cancer patients. All too often, these highly dangerous interventions result in seemingly full recovery followed by relapse.
On this site you will find information about the many complementary and alternative treatment options available to you. These treatments, along with the following strategies, have been shown both in scientific studies and through patient experience to aid recovery from cancer.

Very little of this information is made known to patients and their families by either oncologists or the Irish Cancer Society. That’s why this website was set up.
