About Tanya Harter Pierce

When Tanya Harter Pierce began her own personal investigation into alternative cancer treatments, she was like many others who suddenly find themselves trying to help a family member who’d been diagnosed and not given a good prognosis for recovery.  She spent hours searching the Internet and reading as many books as she could find on the subject.  Tanya already had an open mind to alternative medicine and holistic methods, but when she discovered just how many successful non-toxic approaches had already been developed and used by large numbers of cancer patients, she was stunned!  However, much of the available information was difficult to sort through, so she organized what she learned into Outsmart Your Cancer  to help others know their options as quickly as possible.

“I only included treatment approaches in my book that had significant track records of success as well as a clear methodology and explanation of how they work.  Understanding how cancer functions and how different approaches can inhibit that functioning on the cellular level is critical for reducing a cancer patient’s fear of the disease.  Towards the end of my investigations, I came across many people who had cured themselves of cancer using the liquid formula called Protocel.  Outsmart Your Cancer soon became the definitive source of information on that amazing non-toxic treatment.  But I also found that cancer patients need to know more than just what treatments are out there.  They need to understand the pros and cons of hormone-blocking drugs, how to evaluate conventional cure-rate statistics, the truth about alkalizing, and more.  So I chose to include chapters on those issues as well to help people have their best chance for recovery.”

With a master’s degree in clinical psychology and experience as a licensed marriage, family, and child counselor, Tanya was a professional mental health practitioner before she became a researcher/writer.  She is not a doctor.  However, the fact that she is not a medical practitioner is actually a positive qualification.  Too often, doctors are blinded by their conventional training or carry a bias towards the one type of treatment they have specialized in.  Their expertise is invaluable, but not always conducive to gaining a broad understanding of a variety of approaches.

With her new blog, Tanya is now sharing even more of what she knows about cancer treatment and often uses stories of her personal experiences from talking to patients to illustrate her points.  She encourages people to look at knowledge as power with the understanding that many people have cured themselves of cancer either using alternative non-toxic approaches alone, or by using some combination of conventional and alternative medicine.  She hopes that her writings will be of help to those searching for answers.
