Cancer and the Search for Lost Meaning

Dr. Biava's experience confirms Einstein's often-cited pronouncement: one cannot solve a problem with the kind of thinking in the context of which the problem arose. As he discovered, the methods of surgery, chemotherapy, or irradiation may represent the major treatments of cancer, but they are not the only methods for curing the disease. In fact, he explains, it is not cancer itself that is the problem - cancer is a state of the organism or of the human body. The problem lies in how to treat this state: how to approach the body in which cancer arises. Biava's radically different theory is that malfunctioning cells need not always be excised or chemically destroyed: they can also be reprogrammed for normal functioning.The cure for cellular malignancy, he suggests, involves information - an important yet generally neglected element that is present in nature. Dr. Biava also includes fascinating conclusions about what the lessons of his work can offer us in terms of how we view human existence. The loss of and lack of meaning is a fundamental quality of modern society, and Dr. Biava notes that cancer is a by-product of this loss, a breakdown in communication between the organism and some of its parts. The codes of healthy communication in living beings are changed in tumour pathologies. The codes attempt to reorganize and re-establish life in instances where it has lost meaning. Healing cancer is, therefore, according to Dr. Biava, parallel to finding the meaning of life. Both require a holistic approach - treating the whole and the causes rather than focusing on the symptoms.

"This is without doubt one of the most remarkable books I have ever read. It is not like any other book--it is not one book, but three or more, integrated into a logical, organic unity."--From the foreword by Ervin Laszlo, bestselling author of more than seventy books including "Science and the Akashic Field: An Integral Theory of Everything""This book describes a new approach to the fight against cancer that is completely different from traditional approaches. It is based on treatment with stem cell differentiation stage factors and the idea that tumor cells--instead of being destroyed (with risks of adverse effects)--can be re-programmed."--"Il Corriere della Sera""The cover story of the September 11, 2008 issue of "The Economist, " 'Cancer Stem Cells: The Root of All Evil?' cited many experiments that demonstrate that the malignancy of cancer is due to the presence of mutated stem cells. This is exactly the idea that Pier Mario Biava suggests in this book and that he demonstrated about twenty years ago. Dr. Biava is a genius who is changing the research on cancer diseases."--"Il Secolo d'Italia"""Cancer and the Search for Lost Meaning" is a well written, engaging, 168 page book chronicling Biava's professional (and often personal) journey that led him to make these groundbreaking discoveries in regards to cancer treatment... Biava tells his story and makes his case for curing and treating cancer in a friendly, understandable style."""
