Paul Kraus is the longest document mesothelioma survivor in the world. He was diagnosed in 1997 at the age of 52 with mesothelioma. The cancer was so widespread that he was given little hope of survival. Not willing to give up, he worked with a team of doctors to create his own tailored protocol. This protocol included dramatic life style change, experimental therapies, dietary changes, mind-body medicine, and other modalities. Paul was fortunate. The protocol he and his doctors created helped him keep the mesothelioma in check.
His book “Surviving Mesothelioma and Other Cancers: A Patient’s Guide” details his cancer voyage, the decisions he made, and his philosophies about health and healing. Paul wrote:
After the diagnosis, my wife and I were shocked, fearful and feeling very vulnerable in the days, weeks and months following my diagnosis. Stress was a major problem…”
Paul and his wife immediately set out to research every aspect of mesothelioma. Paul writes, “I devoted all my energy to convert my ignorance and bewilderment into knowledge that would help me turn this illness around, or at least halt it’s progress.”
Paul was successful in his quest and more than 20 years later he is still alive and enjoying life.
His book is now the best-selling mesothelioma book in the world and has inspired countless patients. Dr. Bernie Siegel, M.D. said:
“Paul Kraus’ book has all the information a cancer patient needs to have in order to learn what survival behavior is about.”
And Dr. Eckard Roehrich wrote:
“There are many powerful messages in this book that I believe will benefit mesothelioma patients, cancer sufferers, and health professionals alike.”
Paul believes that his survival is related to his belief that “a diagnosis is not destiny” and that “people can conquer cancer because “there is far more to this illness than just a doctor’s bad news.” Free copies of the book are available for US, AU and NZ residents.
