Cancer is one of the most feared diseases in the world. Any remedy that might achieve a respectable cure rate against the disease, and one that does not carry serious side effects, would rank among the greatest accomplishments of this millennium.

Since cancer has remained largely unconquered in its ferocity as a source of human misery, it has given risen to many charlatans offering false hopes and cures. This has bred a strong atmosphere of skepticism towards wonder cures for cancer among medical researchers and laymen alike.

Meanwhile, conventional medicine has been the dominant form of health care in many countries, so people see anti-cancer remedies from this source to be the most credible of all.

This is unfortunate, as potentially effective anti-cancer weapons developed by other healing traditions could well be overlooked.

In his book the Cancer Terminator, Wang Zhen Guo provides an intriguing look into the making of one such anti-cancer formula. The first thing that comes to one’s mind when yet another patent medicine salesman makes blanket claims for his creation is that he and his product are frauds. In the case of Wang, this is to some extent true: He does claim that his remedy will actually help cure cancer. Wang probably realizes that people will have strong doubts about his claim, and so he proceeds to demystify¬†cancer in the introduction of his book. He discusses the perception that cancer is an invariably fatal disease, and he says that cancer can indeed be cured.

Wang explains the origins of tian xian liquid. The narrative begins with a glimpse of his life and lifelong interest in medicine. His early attempts at curing people with herbal medicines are interesting and credible, primarily because he recounts his failures as well as his successes. In addition to his own story, Wang paints a portrait of the Changbaishan area in China and its natural richness in medicinal plant species.

The narrative systematically narrows the scope of his healing crusade down to the hated enemy — cancer. His early attempts at healing this disease result in setbacks (his father-in-law is among those whom his tian xian pills failed to cure) but Wang persists in his single-handed efforts to defeat cancer. His cure finally achieves the 80 percent cure rate that is reported later on in the book.

Wang receives government support, wins international awards for his invention, and is designated president of the anti-cancer association of Jilin Province. His formulation improves and evolves from tian xian pills into tian xian liquid.

The book provides a remarkable glimpse into the author’s understanding of Chinese medical principles, cancer, and Western medicine. Wang reveals 95 percent of the composition of tian xian liquid, and relates how he finally arrived at the formulation through years of studying Chinese prescriptions.

He explains some basic Chinese concepts of disease and treatment quite authoritatively and clearly.  If anything is obvious from the book, it is that the author does not claim that his formula is a panacea.

He cites experimental data for his claims. Although other researchers have a stronger grasp of scientific principles behind cancer, Wang has shown that his knowledge of the disease has evidence to merit. For free literature of cancer, call +(632) 415 8714; 781 9370; 416 2951.
