Watch The Cause is the Cure on October 5th

So the folks at Maximized Living have asked me to help spread the word about a new film
called “The Cause is the Cure”. It tells the stories of five people who have successfully overcome cancer without chemo or radiation. These are my kind of people!

The film premiers on Saturday October 5th at more than 450 Maximized Living locations throughout the United States and Canada.

I’m very familiar with the people behind this: Dr. Ben Lerner and cancer survivor Dr. Charles Majors who co-authored the book The Cancer Killers with my friend Sayer Ji.

We’re all on the same mission to help people understand cancer and healing, which is why I’m sharing this with you.

Readers of this blog know how much emphasis I put on the causes of cancer.

Despite the hype, only 5-10% of cancers are genetic. The vast majority of cancers are caused by environmental factors, as well as diet and lifestyle choices. 1 in 3 women will deal with some form of cancer in their lifetime, and for men the odds are 1 in 2. That’s serious stuff. But if you change your diet, lifestyle and environment, you can reduce your risk of ever developing cancer. It’s that simple.

In the film, patients who overcame cancer explain their fears, decisions and other experiences while fighting the notorious disease without the use of conventional medical therapies.

“I was given one year to live if I didn’t choose to do chemotherapy or radiation,” said Andrea Thompson, founder of Moving Beyond Ministries and cervical cancer survivor. “After learning the principles of Maximized Living, I knew I was in the right place.”

Watch the trailer.

Maximized Living has a health program called The 5 Essentials. These are the 5 areas that must be addressed to restore health: stress, nutrition, fitness, nerve supply and toxicity.
I couldn’t agree more.

Here’s how they describe the film and their mission…

“The Cause is the Cure” offers cancer-killing strategies to people of all ages, backgrounds and levels of health. Powered by the 5 Essentials, this film endows people to make sustainable lifestyle changes that will have an immense positive impact on their health without of demanding a drastic lifestyle overhaul. (i.e. Small changes can produce big results)

“Research has shown that you can reduce your chances of getting cancer as well as dramatically increase your chance of overcoming it if you’re dealing with this disease already,” said Dr. Ben Lerner, New York Times best-selling author and co-founder of Maximized Living.  “By making proactive, intelligent lifestyle changes, the average person can significantly reduce their risk of contracting this notorious disease.”

Showings of the film coincide with Maximized Living’s official makeover-style event entitled, “Be a Cancer Killer.” This event is open to the public and will demonstrate how people everywhere can utilize the 5 Essentials to boost quality of life and avoid illness.

  • Robin

    This looks great! Do you know how we will be able to see it if we do not live near the places showing it? Online, dvd, etc?

  • Brenda

    Would love to see it but the nearest clinic is 63 miles away. :(

    • Dan

      Drive then…fighting cancer is worth 200 miles and more.

  • Please tell me you’re also addressing the emotional and mental dysfunctions that tend to accompany this disease…. like long-held UNFORGIVENESS, fear, guilt and resentment; core beliefs that are erroneous and harmful, lack of self-love, childhood abuse, or are you only looking at the physical body?

    • Absolutely. Spiritual and emotional healing is critical.

        Essential #1 of Maximized Living…Maximzed Your MIND.

    I am so excited to know another great film is coming out that exposes the fraud of modern medicine and all the chemicals we have been ingesting in our foods, water, air and medicines that causes disease and illness and to know the truth of cures is being recognized more and more worldwide is a dream come true. What a great victory to everyone that has awakened to a whole new reality of all natural, healthy living and healing. What a great time to be alive and sharing such life changing info. Looking forward to watching this film wherever I can. Awesome. Robert Csiki, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

    Hi Dr, I did the search you recommended and found a ML clinic 70 miles away and they said they were not taking part in showing the movie.

    • Dan


    • Hello Patrick,

      Can you email us at and let us know which office you contacted so we can follow up.

      The video will be available online shortly after October 5th and later for purchase via Amazon.

      Thank you

  • (Another documentary worth viewing IMHO is “Healing Cancer from the Inside Out” by Mike Anderson. Copies are only about 10 bucks.)

  • Teniel

    I wonder how we can view it in Australia?

  • Jonathan Coleman

    Hi Chris,

    I am in the UK so would only be able to view this film online.

    Do you plan to make it available as a download?!!



  • Dave Kelly

    Heya! Any ideas when this inspirational movie will be available to watch in the uk? Will it be streamed or released on dvd? I am so excited to see the whole thing it looks so interesting!

    • Dave

      Any info on this film seems to have vanished! Any updates on what’s happening with release at all?

  • Greg

    I’ve run across this website and I’m so pleased. My mum just have been told she need a chemo and radiotherapy but she refused and want to go natural. All family support her but here in Poland there is no many testimonials from chemo free cancer survivors. Such a testimonials would certainly help her and strength her believe she doing right thing. Can somebody tell me if this movie is available on dvd or on internet?
