Ty Bollinger’s Cancer Book

I love juicing, and no, that doesn't mean I take steroids. I bought my juicer about 5 years ago and I go through phases where I use it multiple times a day. So the other day I was purchasing a 25 pound bag of carrots and some apples, obviously to juice. The cashier told me that her husband had a tumor years ago and went through an extreme juicing regimen to rid himself of it, and is still fine all these years later. I had heard of juicing as an alternative to cancer and other therapies. A couple days later, I decided to Google this concept to see what was out there. What I really wanted to find was someone extolling the virtues of juicing, merely to confirm my existing love of it. I did in fact find what I was looking for. But I also found a couple of things that didn't sit so well with me. Specifically, I did not like what I saw being promoted by Ty Bollinger with his book "Cancer: Step Outside of the Box."

First of all, his websites (yes plural) look like those e-book scam site that ramble on and on and on and on about how great the product is, give little info, tons of testimonials, free e-books if you purchase, and end with a link to buy their amazing, breakthrough product.

Here are a couple of his sites:

squidoo.com/cure-cancer-diet
naturaltreatmentforcancer.com
cancertruth.net
cancertruth.info

Anyone wonder why he needs so many websites? Using multiple, identical websites is a scammer’s tactic. Just sayin’.

Here’s my problem with this scenario. I know that if I had a cure for cancer, I sure wouldn’t be trying to make money off of it with websites full of over-the-top hype. He has some pretty grand claims in his advertising, too.

I’ve seen the book. Severe grammatical issues aside, and once you wade through the religious ramblings, the personal stories, and the conspiracy theories (some of which have validity), you’ll find the same old natural “cures” found easily on the internet. For free.

And despite the fact that Mr. Bollinger may even have good intentions, the extreme low quality of this book, paired with the fact that there really isn’t any thing ground-breaking included, makes me squint in disdain for his advertising methods and claims.

In other words, it looks a lot like this guy is lining his pockets by preying on those who are sick and desperate for a cure.

Go to Amazon and read the glowing 5-star reviews of his book. I have to wonder who wrote them because this book is amateur hour at best. It’s not uncommon for an author to stuff the ballot box so to speak, with glowing reviews he writes himself. Then take a look at some of the objective 1-3 star reviews and see the extreme discrepancy.

It’s one thing to write a book about natural cancer cures. But, Ty Bollinger, when you advertise it as something unique, and you’re NOT EVEN A DOCTOR, then you should be careful that you aren’t just profiting off of the sick and dying. Your book is not the most informative, not the most informed, not the best written, and not the most unique on the topic. Not by a mile. Not in the top 100.

I know if I were diagnosed with cancer and looking for something  like “juicing to rid myself of cancer” then I’d read what nutritionists, herbalists, and yes even medical doctors who believe in alternative medicine have to say. I wouldn’t believe some e-book-hype website with dubious testimonials. (I worked in advertising and I will say again that testimonials are often lies, paid for, or taken out of context.)

And I’d start juicing like crazy until I found some sort of consensus on the matter.

    I think what the other commenter was saying is that you say that the book is very poorly written but you dont say that the information is incorrect. You say that all the information is available online but if someone wants that information this book supposedly gives it all to you in one place and supposedly has been tested and has shown great results.

    Im a singing teacher who has students all over the world via skype. I never started out to become a singing teacher just someone that could sing ok at karaoke. I ended up having lessons and reading more and more. I had people come to me asking questions and i began diagnosing what they did wrong and teaching them how to correct it. As more and more people asked, I diagnosed problems and developed many of my own ways of teaching how to fix problems. I had people start to tell me I should teach professionally and write a book on singing. I didnt set out to be a singing teacher. This guy wrote this book quite a few years ago. He was a CPA that studied all he could find on this, supposedly as it was a big killer in his family. He ended up knowing all this information so his friends probably said, “you should write a book.” So when someone asks, “where can I find this information, how do I know what really works and what doesnt?, they can find his book online and get it all in one spot. He probably googled how to market his book when he wrote it and ended up finding sites that promoted marketing the way scammers do. Thats how he ended up with the scam marketing techniques.
    I’m looking for those natural cancer cures for a family member right now and Im asking the questions I said above about what works, where can I find it all at once. I found your page when I googled Ty Bollinger scam because I wanted to see if people had proof it was a scam before I looked further. What the other poster is saying is if you believe the book is a scam, point us towards something that isnt. Dont just call it a scam because he’s not a writer and he gathered the information from other sources. If he’s like me he has learnt about something he never planned to and has now turned it into a business. Do you work for free? If the information is good, quite complete and works thats all I’m interested in. He may use the scammers sale technique but its workin and his book is the one people find first. I want the information, I wish the people that wrote the best book in your top 100 used his promotion techniques as well, then I’d not be googling this guys name and scam. The result of that google was your comment and someone saying he was a scam to other people on a regular forum that had tried what he said and had it work for their family member. So his information is looking quite good. If you know better books on this or especially better free information on line that is all in one place, then please share it with us. Thanks.

    Keep up your good work, honest reporting. I also believe in juicing, organic foods, to be the best path to health!!!
    Thank you.

  • Gman

    As/in a response to Waffles, Royal Rife, Bob Beckman and others.

    AMA is not your friend. Using the word “cure” is frowned upon.

    Being cured does not make people money.

    As an example there is a cure for AIDS. Most people don’t know this.

    Every time I see people begging for money for the cure for aids I get pissed.

    United States Patent 5676977. It’s an injection of tetrasilver tetroxide molecular crystals into the bloodstream of the AIDS patient.

    Make, drink and use silver ion nano particles.

    I am honestly disgusted at the lack of knowledge and consideration of those who HAVE stayed in remission only because of books like Ty Bollinger’s. Do you have any idea what it is like to see your mother diagnosed with stage 3 cancer and the doctor tell you that diet and nutrition will NOT help to keep you in remission? They say this because they are trained by Big Pharma companies and YES no government affiliated companies will ever study the positive effects of alternative therapies because they are cheap in comparison to chemo, drugs and radiation therapy. FOLLOW THE MONEY PEOPLE!!!!!! Do your research and you will find people are dying due to the organs failing because of the treatments NOT the cancer. I applaud people like Ty who will take the risk and publish this factual information knowing that the government and FDA are waiting for a good reason to take away our freedom of speech. That freedom comes with a price. If we stopped using these drugs that are killing us the economy would suffer…bottom line…money lost. The money is in the middle as it was stated perfectly in the movie Forks over Knives. The money isn’t in keeping healthy nor is it in you being dead…it’s in the middle. My mother was told 5 years ago she wouldn’t survive her cancer and here we are 5 years later and she is in complete remission and the best health of her life. It’s not a secret…Diet and Nutrition WORK!!! Keeping your body alkaline and juicing are a major part of it! I don’t care if Ty’s book had ‘grammatical errors’ as the first comment suggested. It’s the TRUTH and I am thankful for it. I had to search for months to acquire the information in that book to find the right protocols for alternative treatment. Keep it up Ty….there are people like my mom and I that value your research and are living proof of that. God Bless anyone reading and take control of your health….fear inducing conventional medicine is failing. Do your research and remember it is YOUR body!!!!!

      Tell you what… visit cancertutor.com, with which we have zero affiliation. You’ll find most, if not all, of the alternative treatments/cures offered by Mr. Bollinger – for FREE. The author(s) of that website truly want to help and offer it to everyone, rather than selling cures that have been around for decades or even centuries. It’s not a matter of research, it’s a matter of repackaging old ideas as if they are new or unique and selling them to desperate sufferers.

      Finally, “following the money” should also include those who reap benefits from reselling repackaged ideas they did not develop, right?

      If you want to know about alternative cures/treatments, save your money and visit cancertutor.com.

  • Danielle

    You are clearly missing the point here. The more books published about alternative cancer treatments that work the better. The website you refer to I have never heard of it. Glad it is available and I’m sure it can help many people just as Ty’s book has and will continue to. If this is a matter of putting his book down over paying 15 or 20 dollars for it than that is just foolish. I’m pretty sure someone who hasn’t heard of that website but only came across Ty’s book would value their life enough to pay that amount. Again…the point is anyway and anyhow the information is out out into the public is going to help people. And isn’t that ultimately the goal? And when I refer to following the money I am talking to Big Pharma companies who are making billions at our expense not a great guy who spoke to our holistic group for FREE! He should get paid for putting his research and information together in a book. (from this own experiences and resources such as Dr. Farley) Should he not get paid for his time and devotion to the fight we are all fighting?? How about realizing this guy lost most of his family to cancer and made it his mission to understand the disease and help others. Don’t put down the ‘good guys’ trying to help…use that energy towards the medical community making major profits from treatments that they actually admit they would never use themselves.

    • waffles

      The point isn’t pro or con alternative cures, but that there is nothing new or breakthrough in this book, and there is nothing unique. If you developed something you thought would help people – and offered it for free – and someone else turned around and sold it as a breakthrough cure, you may not call that person a “good guy.”

      While we agree with many criticisms of the “Big Pharma” companies – it seems naive to blindly embrace everyone in alternative medicine, as not everyone in this industry is well-intended. People like Bollinger and Trudeau slap together a bunch of old ideas and sell them as breakthrough books. To us, that’s just as ghoulish as what’s going on in the pharmaceutical industry.

  • Danielle

    Considering the fact that the information they provide is not easily available I still believe that they should be applauded for publishing the information. Have you met Ty Bollinger? I think I can answer that actually because if you met him you would never have a negative comment about him. Since he spoke in Pittsburgh he will answer questions through email for FREE! Amazing guy who is both knowledgable and passionate about holistic healing. You should consider attending his next lecture and I’m sure your opinion will change.

    • waffles

      He is probably a nice guy, especially at lectures full of eager customers. And the information he is repackaging is not difficult to obtain at all, unless a person has no access to a computer or a library. Much of the info is decades old. Have you researched Carnivora, which he advertises on the radio?

      We’d love to interview him, though it’s not clear if he would agree to anyone other than a sympathizer.

    This guy should be in jail He finds faults with everything .Cancer is an aggressive illness and needs to be treated that way.Most people have friends that have had cancer but don’t go around knocking everything scientific.HE has no credentials, ‘I had cancer 20 years ago and I am still here after getting treated by outstanding caring medical DOCTORS.I ALSO HAVE BEEN SELLING ORGANIC FOODS FOR OVER 10 YEARS .I SELL IT BUT DONT BELEIVE IT WORKS . P T BARNUN SAID IT BEST.

  • Myself

    Hi,

    I understand that in your great country (the land of the free) a chemical drug takes less than a year of testing to be approved, and a natural remedy takes many years.

    Is it true?

  • Julie

    Just want to point out that Ty gives his books free to anyone with cancer or who doesn’t have the money to purchase them. He lost two family members to cancer and I believe his heart is in helping others, as he says, to be aware of all of the options available in treating disease. You don’t have to be a doctor to gain knowledge in medicine. A person has to make a living, of course he has to sell books. People profit off of much worse things than helping others. Ty comes across as genuine to me. Blessings!

  • d-a

    Too much negativity here Waffles! You have to be open minded an d consider that a cancer recipient has been handed a DEATH SENTENCE when they first hear the word CANCER. I believe that any available alternative healing is good, not matter how we get it, and how much it costs, as long as we get it NOW! I dont have a problem with this TY guy, and I have not even read his stuff…just reading all the comments on here is enough for me…and YOU WAFFLES should quit judging TY. Look within your own heart , and try to feel like others feel. QUIT judging a good guy doing a good thing. The things he is putting in his book and the way he is trying to share it with the world is not a BAD thing…its a GOOD thing, so knock it off! By the way, 11 years ago My father was told by a conventional doctor, chief surgeon of cancer clinic hospital in Canada, that his only hope is ten chemo treatments for his liver cancer, and that he was not a candidate for a liver transplant, as he was an alcoholic, and that his chemo probably would not cure it, and that thte liver can never recover , but to take the treatments anyways. I had already lined up my Dad to go to Mexico for alternative treatments, so He told the Canadian doctor NO! and went to Mexico. The alternative treatments were diet and vitamin injections. He improved incredibly. He is no longer with us as died of a heart attack. The Canadian doctor had cancelled his artery surgery he was supposed to have as they said , no use having it, since teh liver cancer is going to kill you soon. Nice eh? SO yeah….GOOD ON TY! and get off of here WAFFLES! if you are going to be negative…try just supporting other good guys, same as you want to be supported. You believe in natural cures, so quit knocking someone else who is trying to do the same thing…help people. By the way, my niece was just diagnosed with sinus cancer stage 4, and she has 3 weeks till her surgery and doctor said she will lose half her face and teeth and one eye, and then will see when they go in , what else they can do….and a tracheotomy…..so we have her hooked up with alternative healing and also we have her hooked up to receive Long distance healing from GOD through John of GOD of Brazil. CHeck him out people…google him and see all teh you tube videos. He has helped GOD heal millions in 45 yrs. Skeptics please dont reply. We are not interested in negativity. GOD is GOOD….SHAre the LOVE and the LIGHT!

    • waffles

      The negativity is toward a man selling hyped-up cures that are easily found for free online. The sentiment here is that rather than paying for his book full of cures that he did not discover, you can find all the same information and more at websites such as cancertutor.com, with which we have no affiliation.

  • d-a

    also waffles…i just went to the site cancer tutor.com, and within this site, it refers theh reader to go to Ty Bollingers book 31 day cancer cure….so why are you referring it and then knocking TY? sounds fishy what your agenda is on here being so negative. by the way, cacnertutor site is good too….get it together and row the same boat

    • waffles

      Virtually all of the “cures” in his book can be found on that site for free. It’s not surprising they would mention a book that bolsters the cures they list. The idea here isn’t whether or not any of these things work, but that he is charging for readily-available alternative “cures” found all over the internet. If you want alternative cures, go cancertutor is a great free resource that goes beyond the scope of Mr. Bollinger’s book.

  • Cathi

    Add Facebook to his sites,and if you go there and have a different opinion then him he will block you!

  • Peter

    I am a 53 yr old health advocate that truly believe “PREVENTION IS THE BEST MEDICINE”! This book by Ty Bollinger is very simply telling you to “step outside the box” and be open minded enough to think about natural therapies instead of going via conventional, mainstream medicine that is obviously fueled by MONEY!!! Wake up people and realize what you are putting in your mouth effects your overall health!

  • MertonP

    If people were actually being cured by these natural treatments the word would spread like wildfire to family and friends. Do you know anyone who was cured naturally? I had a good friend who went to Mexico for coffee enemas and such. Of course she died of cancer. I believe the actor Steve McQueen also tried natural cures and he met a similar fate. If there are any documented, verifiable cases of natural cures of cancer patients I’d like to hear about them. I. Truly wish there is a natural cure. I have friends that have cancer and some who have died of cancer.

  • CHART Natural Cancer Healing

    Hey Merton, if you know anyone using natural therapies for cancer, please encourage them to start a CHART Medical Log. We’re doing the research and in a few years, we might have an answer for you.

  • waffles

    Thanks for your comment. That post is nearly two years old and has been viewed tens of thousands of times since it was first published here. Yours is the first comment to defend the book, which I maintain to this day is poorly written and devoid of anything substantive.

  • Leia

    I thought the book was great. Yes he does review “old remedies” which just further shows that there have been cures for cancer for ages. It was good to get a review in one place. Big pharma is not out to cure anything, but treat symptoms, keep us sick and squeeze every cent out of us before we die as we eat GMO’s processed foods and pesticides. As for there being an avalanche of press for cured patients? Ha Ha! The press is in the pockets of those who own big pharma and big food. Please. We don’t have a free press. Just look at Gerson patients alone. There are MANY MANY people who cure their cancer with natural means. They just go on with their lives. No, the mainstream press will not cover this.
