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<br />

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.

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.

Highly recommend listening to Roy's voice

I adore how this book bridged the gap between Western and eastern medicine in a way that is easily comprehendable. The message is inclusive and relevant to the growing demand in our culture for each of us to take responsibility for our health and the factors that influence each of our states of being. The voice of the author is captivating, and I appreciated hearing his voice over my own mental voice. I highly recommend listening to the audio version. I started listening to relay messages to a friend with stage four breast cancer...what I found was plenty of empowering messages for myself about my own self care and ways to apply the information. This book has a message for everybody. I highly recommend to anyone who would like to live to live healthier or heal and they don't know how...I had many ah- ha moments in reading this and I've been dedicated to my own healing path for years ....I'm guessing this book will plant seeds of healing in skeptical minds and help people open to more possibilities for better lives. There is something revolutionary in a western Dr. speaking this way...

A brilliant yet humble man shares his wit & wisdom

What? A radiation oncologist who's a successful actor and lifestyle medicine doctor who actually spends time with his patients? Sheesh! What a pleasure to listen and learn from Dr. Roy. Get ready to laugh, learn, and show up differently in your life. I heard about this from a colleague and can't wait to recommend to my therapy patients. Wonderful!
