Chris Beat Cancer by Chris Wark (September 2018)

Cancer. It’s a word that can evoke feelings of fear, grief, helplessness, and confusion. Chris Wark was diagnosed with Stage IIIC colon cancer that spread to surrounding lymph nodes. He was told he would need 9-12 months of chemotherapy in order to prevent a recurrence. That was in 2003.

Instead of choosing the conventional path that doctors, friends, and family pressured him towards, Chris decided to transform his life and health by changing the internal terrain of his body to make it a place where cancer could not thrive. In this personal, practical, and inspiring book, Chris shares his story and explains the methods that he and many others have successfully used to heal. Using research as his foundation, he reveals what he’s learned about the power of nutrition and lifestyle medicine, as well as the pitfalls of the cancer industry.

As every one of us has been affected by cancer, this life-giving book presents an alternative way to navigate this difficult disease. Whether someone has recently received a cancer diagnosis, wants to support a loved one through a cancer journey, or needs a powerful road map for cancer prevention, Chris Beat Cancer offers help and hope.

“Every time I see someone suffer and die after enduring countless rounds of brutal cancer treatments while others are healing, it strengthens my resolve to share this message of hope. True hope. That cancer can be healed.” –Chris Wark
