Can I objectively write on this topic? You be the judge. My success achieving complete remission of chronic lym-


phocytic leukemia without traditional intervention and using quality nutraceuticals as part of a comprehensive, personalized integrative cancer therapy regimen has been well-documented by my oncologist, Lee Nadler, MD, a Harvard Medical School
