This book is amazing. It will answer all of the questions that are in your mind, but have no one to ask. If you have cancer, your Oncologist will not have the answers for you. If you do not have cancer and want to keep it that way, this book is full of the guidance that you need. Dr. Nalini is amazing. Full of wisdom gathered from her years of doing this. If you want to calm your mind and bring some peace to your life, this book will help you begin to get there.

Now I feel like I can be pro-active in my battle and not just a vessel for harmful but necessary chemicals. Some much of her nutritional advice, as my husband is a wonderful and informed cook, was on our radar but thanks to Dr. Chilkov, we now have the needed impetus to clean up those last nasty eating choices. Her encouragement to use this illness to create life changing habits was empowering and the comfort of knowing that she be in my corner for a long time to come is a huge emotional boost. Even the process of sorting through the plethora of vitamin/supplement bottles feels liberating and the acupuncture session was a definite boost to my energy level and well being. I cannot thank you enough for your all knowing kindness. With extreme gratitude for giving a life changing gift. I am not sure where to begin to thank you. My meeting with Dr. Chilkov was the most needed of medicines .

Ovarian Cancer Patient
I was diagnosed with stage IIIc ovarian cancer in July 2009. After the initial shock, I got busy putting together an amazing team of practitioners to get me through this ordeal. My team included Dr. Nalini Chilkov. Without her guidance and expertise, I don’t think I could have gotten through the a major abdominal surgery and chemotherapy. She gave me options for my hospital stay to quicken my recovery. I was released from the hospital after only 5 days! 4 months of grueling treatment was very difficult but would have been much worse if not for the support of complementary medicine recommended by Dr. Chilkov. She also put together a plan to keep me healthy post treatment . Two years later, I am thrilled to say that I am doing great, am healthier and happier than ever, and plan to stay that way for many years to come! Traditional cancer treatments cannot do much beyond conventional chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. Dr. Chilkov fills in the gaps left by western medicine with the health end of the equation. Her impressive understanding of oncology from a western medical stand point makes communicating with my doctors easy. I am forever grateful for the compassionate, caring and in depth knowledge that she continues to impart; I am indebted to Dr. Chilkov and am so appreciative to have her in my life and on my team.

Dr. Chilkov is the very best kind of physician, marrying leading edge science with ancient healing. I came to Dr Chilkov with advanced late stage cancer. I was told that my cancer was untreatable and inoperable. While under her care my tumors shrank and it became possible for me to have surgery. My “inoperable” tumors were removed with clean margins. Dr. Chilkov not only gave me a chance of regaining and maintaining my health and but even surpassing what I thought was possible. She provides the opportunity for the very best possible outcome for whatever ails you. Dr. Chilkov is a compassionate, knowledgable and resourceful physician. I am so lucky and grateful to be under her care.

My wonderful Oncologist recommended I see Doctor Nalini just prior to starting Chemotherapy for breast cancer, which had spread to a spot on my collarbone. Dr. Nalini immediately got to work on detoxifying my liver and readying me for the treatments. For every side effect that came up she had a handy herb, tonic, nutrition suggestion or supplement in her vast toolbox of knowledge and what’s more they worked. I have never been so terrified but yet I got through six chemotherapies without any of the accompanying sickness and nausea. Dr. Nalini worked with my Oncologist to find the best solutions for me. She then helped me detoxify after Chemotherapy and surgery and kept me supported throughout radiation. So far so good, the spot on the collarbone has healed over with new bone and my tumor shrank so I could get a lumpectomy instead of a mastectomy. The beauty of working with Dr. Nalini is that everything is rooted in scientific research combined with her years of passion and experience. A regular, thorough analysis of one’s blood and genes is used each time she prescribes a new supplement, herb or treatment. The tools change with how your body is responding which is remarkable, individualized care at it’s best. I am now working with her to prevent recurrence and I can’t tell you how good it feels to have this amazing woman guide me through yet another complex and fascinating path and to feel with her by my side that I have control of my physiology, my gene expressions and my life. What’s more Dr. Nalini isn’t afraid of cancer. She kicks its ass!

Last year I almost died of advanced cancer. Nobody should have to go through what I experienced– My doctors are amazed. After only two weeks of starting my nutritional supplements, herbal medicines, morning smoothie and cancer fighting diet, my health and vitality doubled and in three months, I’m feeling close to 100% – Dr. Nalini Chilkov is my secret weapon for perfect health – she’s practical, pragmatic and brilliant.

Let me express my profound gratitude for your generous and game-changing truth talking. The conversation we had may have changed my life more than any other. It was a wake up call, a call to action, and truly was such a heartfelt and stabilizing picture of reality. I cannot express how grateful I am. I am especially aware of the implications of our talk for my daughter, and for this I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am learning how to take better care of myself as I work through the different kinds of denial that I have. To say our conversation helped me to change the way I am handling this is an understatement. So again, thank you.

I am not brave enough to tolerate much discomfort. Within about 10 days of starting your program, there was such an enormous difference – an unbelievable difference. A colleague wondered about this new paradigm – “thriving” on chemo. Of course after starting with nutrition and supplements and acupuncture, I began and continue to feel healthy and well and able to engage fully in life again. My friends say how AMAZING I look and seem surprised and puzzled and slightly suspicious. I think people are beginning to wonder if my cancer diagnosis was a sham! . I have energy, though I am careful not to over tire myself, not to do anything I think might be physically, or worse, emotionally draining. I am vigilant, though not obsessive, with my diet and nutrition and I am very disciplined about taking the supplements. And I tell everyone to take me off their worry list. The focus on my health and well-being makes me feel safe and unconcerned. With your help, I have achieved what I wanted when I first started treatment, and that is to make dealing with the cancer simply a routine like cleaning my teeth, not the central focus of my or my family’s life. I am incredibly, daily, grateful for this fortune, this gift of life and wellbeing. And, again, I thank you.

I too can write paragraphs about the wonders of care I received after I was struck with breast cancer lumpectomy surgery and radiation treatments 12 years ago. Ever since then I continue to follow the regimen of supplements and diet she recommends. All from a very cautious diet and strong supplementation to correct the “terrain” (Dr. Nalini’s word) of my body. Thank you for everything, dear Dr.Nalini. I can always feel confident in the health trials that I may face without fear by virtue of your brilliant care . My life which is rich and full and will continue that way as I sail thought my 70?s and beyond!

Dr. Nalini Chilkov is a treasure! There are few doctors who take the time to listen, truly care about the whole person and body, and are concerned with treatment for the mind/body/spirit. Looking at the body as an integrated system, Dr. Chilkov has a keen sense of treatment needs and is able to balance the body harmoniously. With a devotion to continued research and education, she is able to use her broad spectrum of knowledge for many different types of “dis-eases” or conditions. Her continual assessment of the body combined with extraordinary intuition sets forth a path towards healing and well body energy. Dr. Chilkov tailors her care towards individual needs with amazing precision, leading the way to a new definition of wellness. Her compassion and giving heart are a blessing to us all!

If you are in crisis, or are frustrated and frightened by the limitations of the Western medical model, or perhaps simply looking to build long-term health, a visit to Dr. Chilkov is a must. Dr. Chilkov is the only person I trust to look at my medical circumstances from all angles. She incorporates her extensive knowledge of both Eastern & Western Medicine in her treatment approach, always considering her patient’s individual physiology and genetics instead of trying to fit them into a statistical pool. She is also one of the rare few who looks carefully at the impact our modern environment has on a person’s health and implements detoxifying treatments to reduce the exposures and stresses to help prevent future disease.
