Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/11/2018 -- Dr. Sunil Pai, co-host of Take Back Your Health interviews author, survivor, and advocate, Chris Wark about his unpopular decision to decline conventional treatment after being diagnosed with cancer.
In 2004, at the young age of 26, Chris Wark was diagnosed with Stage IIIC Colorectal Cancer. Doctors removed a large tumor and approximately 30% of his colon. Surprisingly, the 5-year relative survival rate for this stage of this cancer, with full conventional treatment, is only about 53%.
Chris couldn't accept that prognosis and decided to take his health back into his own hands. He chose to decline chemotherapy and instead explored and adopted a variety of integrative and lifestyle interventions.
Take Back Your Health Hosts, Sunil Pai MD and Maureen Sutton AYU RYT LMT, talk with Chris Wark and discuss his journey and examine the highlights of his learnings as he celebrates defying conventional thinking and his 14 years of survival, despite the odds.
As a renowned Integrative Medicine physician, Pai discusses and communicates the evidence based elements of Chris Wark's success. With cancer rates steadily rising, and survival rates seeing only modest gains, this episode promises to illuminate the role of Integrative Medicine and will inspire listeners to take a proactive role in the management of their diseases and improve their outcomes.
