Critic Reviews

“Having treated and cured thousands of cancer patients, I can safely say that this book will not only challenge our assumptions about what is possible, but also will provide a secure roadmap for people who want to heal, not just be cured.” (Dr. Guy Juillard, Professor Emeritus, former Vice Chair at UCLA Radiation Oncology and first holder of The Jennifer Jones Simon Professorship in Radiation Oncology)

PHENOMENAL

Amazing Book I could not stop listening to it. EVERYTHING the doctor shared all the research and all the different cases studied.
I could not stop listening to it,
If I could I would have taken time from work to continue listening to finish in one day. Intuitively I've always felt this way about the medical industry I am so GRATEFUL that it is confirmed in this book coming from professional.

I HOPE THIS BOOK WILL HAVE TSUNAMI EFFECT ON THE MEDICAL INDUSTRY.

THE MEDICAL INDUSTRY HAS BECOME A MONEY-MAKING BUSINESS RATHER THAN HEALING PEOPLE.
Doctor Vongtam thank you for becoming a pioneer in the ripple effect of a new way the medical industry will change in the future.

May you remain strong and steadfast in this change.

Must read/listen for everyone.

This book is one of the best I have ever listened to. The delivery is compelling and engaging, allowing one to take in the rich information that is being presented. Dr. Vongtama presents extensive research in a way that is accessible. There is so much in this book that can benefit everyone, especially those who have had or are dealing with cancer. Additionally Dr. Vongtama's narration of his book is soothing and reassuring, making one feel healed already.

I love this book

Although I don’t know Dr. Vongtama personally, I feel deeply impacted by his book already. He is matter of fact, easy to listen to (favorite voice I’ve heard on Audible so far), encouraging, practical, and broad minded. I’m so grateful for the relatability and resonating perspectives he sets forth. I realized a lot already on first listen especially because I paused to journal along the way. He’s compelling- I believe him. I’m certain I’ll be revisiting the material frequently to develop better clarity as I try more of the games, writing, body check, and mindfulness/ meditation exercises.

Healing Before You’re Cured brings light to research and anecdotes with a panoramic take on it all. You have to hear it!

Well done, Dr. Roy! I wish him the best and continued success.

Finally, modern research on the mind, body, emotion, spirit connection

The author does a phenomenal job narrating. I love how the Dr. shares experiences and stories from his life and with patients. The research he presents, like ACES, is what I’ve always what I sought. He gives simple steps that are actionable which I believe would yield results. This is for anyone interested in integrative health, and highly recommended for those who have been impacted by cancer individually or a family member.

I thoroughly enjoyed this.

I consider myself a worrier as well as a woo woo individual, so this book validated a lot of my own thoughts. I'm thankful for the author and the work he put into this. It was well worth my time and attention.

Valuable resource and perspective

Found myself rewinding multiple times to absorb the significance of what he is teaching in this book. I will be listening to this multiple times. The ideas and info in this book can be extremely helpful for anyone who is on or is embarking on a healing journey. Roy's approach to helping others heal can assist any healthcare professional seeking to better serve their patients through the treatment and healing process.

One of those books I wished I had read sooner!

I read all the time and rarely write reviews. I read this book twice and I learned more the second time. I have recommended this book to my friends and family and to my patients. I think everyone can benefit from Dr. Roy's wisdom. I agree with his evaluation of the evidence of how should we live our lives and break down life into 4 houses. I loved the short chapter format of his book with personal stories - it made it real. I remember those stories for months after I read the book and apply it to my daily life.
If you want a balanced book to look at your life in this chaotic, zombie-like world while burnout, anxious and overwhelmed, I think this book helps you identify the sources and offers you solutions. It helped me.
I just wished Dr. Roy had written this book sooner, so more people could have benefitted sooner.
