ABOUT THIS BOOK

 

Reflections, essay, Alain Amzallag, Ph.D.,
Fondation littéraire Fleur de Lys

 

Born in 1949 in Casablanca, Morocco, Alain Amzallag, in the early 60’s decides that he will become a scientist and set s his sights on “finding a cure for cancer”. Up until 1970, Alain studies scientific and medical topics so as to prepare himself to achieve this goal. When he was 21 years old, the author entered a Ph.D. program at the Cornell University Graduate School of Medical Sciences/Sloan-Kettering Division, in Manhattan. There, he undertakes several projects in Immunogenetics with success.

Besides distractions of social nature (chess, bridge & volleyball) Alain studies hard and with determination. Following an unfortunate love betrayal, Alain slips into a major depression in the Fall of 1973. Once the depression is over, his mood is buoyant and he undertakes in the Spring of 1974 a marathon of 72 hours accompanied with sleep and food deprivation during which he works on a theoretical approach to cancer therapy. During his retreat in the dormitory room, he has a vision. This vision encompasses an integrated comprehension of the immunological aspect of cancer and other chronic diseases.

Towards the end of the vision, the author loses contact with reality and is subsequently hospitalized and diagnosed as having had an ‘acute schizoid episode’. In this book, you will find the description of the prevailing mental state before, during and after the vision as well as the outlining of the vision.

A universal treatment against cancer


Blue angel


The General Theory of cancer Management 1,2,3,4 has gone a long way since its conceptualization in 1974. Indeed, the approaches advocated in Alain Amzallag’s theory are ‘presently being used clinically in most cancer treatment cancer centers’5. Baroukh Hashem. March 25th, 2012 // 2 Nissan 5772

Note from the author

 

Blue angle


Since the age of 13, the author’s Bar-Mitzvah in 1962, he obsessed about cancer and the necessity and urgency to find a cure or at least a universal treatment against cancer. In 1974, Alain has a vision of such a universal treatment just prior to undergoing an acute schizoid episode. This vision was subsequently repressed and personal doubts about its applicability in clinical trials abounded in his mind.

Twenty-six years later, the General Theory of cancer Management and the Systems Equilibrium Theory resurfaced (year 2000) in the author’s mind as his late mother relapsed during her breast cancer courageous fight. Mme Eliane Abitbol-Amzallag Z’’L passed away on March 22nd, 2004. May she rest in peace…

In 2005, Alain published “High, Flat, Down And Back Up Again!” “A Guide to Manic-Depressive Illness”, wherein he described to some extent the main elements of the General Theory of cancer Management. In 2009, Alain Amzallag published, this time in French: ‘Bipolarité & cancérologie” “Défis & Espoirs”.

These two books attempt to sort out the author’s Mood Disorder, namely; Bipolar Affective Disorder, Type1 and his evolving perception that the theory has current validity.

From 2005 to 2012, Alain publicized extensively his Theory always seeking feedback from cancer researchers, physicians and oncologists but obtained very few comments from them.

Recently, Alain Amzallag obtained a very important feedback, i.e., a most gratifying reward for his efforts, i.e., the fact that the approaches advocated in the General Theory of cancer Management are being utilized in the majority of cancer treatment centers. Thank you Nicole…

Foreword

 

More than 4% of the population suffers from a bipolar disorder with mood swings from highs to severe depressions. The most severe form, Bipolar 1, is also known as manic-depression in which the highs of manic episodes are much more intense.

In the past, this illness was less understood and surrounded by many taboos and much prejudice. Fortunately in the last few years the understanding and treatment of this illness have greatly improved and many of the taboos have fallen thanks to the courageous work of many people who had publicly identified themselves as being manic-depressive or bipolar. In this book, Alain Amzallag continues in this tradition, and tells his story from the inside with warmth and humor. You will find both an informative and an inspiring tale full of hope for today and the future.

Much of world history has been influenced by bipolar people who had the courage and energy to change the world around them. After you read this book, join your


local bipolar association and help to improve the understanding and the acceptance of this remarkable illness in your community.

After all, they are not many illnesses that can actually help people be even more successful in their life!
