For instance, his book on cancer is not simply “Cancer Prevention”; it is The Answer to Cancer. That is, he is looking to revolutionize and reform the approach to cancer as a whole, not just chip away at it. His other book on disease is not just “Some Effective Approaches to a Tough Problem.” It is Freedom from Disease. Dr. Sharma’s career represents a synthesis of the modern-day knowledge of Western medicine and the ancient knowledge of the natural, comprehensive Vedic system of health care.
