Herbal Surgeon: Immortal Cancer Care presents technique and recipes passed down by the ‘ancients’ to aid the body in recovery from cancer syndrome.
Western methods for treating cancer include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, hormone treatment, and immune boosting treatments. Statistics show that these methods do not really work, especially for late stage cancer patients.
Shifu Hwang introduces Chinese Taoist methods for treating cancer patients which were used 500 years ago. Great results have been seen when the ‘immortal’ Taoist formulas and methods are used on cancer patients today. These are now recorded and preserved in the book Herbal Surgeon: Immortal Cancer Care.

Reviews from Amazon.com
Already familiar with health benefits of Chinese herbs, I found this book to be rich in providing answers to the how, what, and why of eastern medicine. The explanations and recipes are so clear that even I can follow them. However, I am not a physician and would never consider actually applying these solutions without a practiced guide. Shifu Hwang has left a wonderful legacy to the Western world of medicine through the writing of this book. Let’s hope that many physicians will discover and apply his great wisdom.
– Shannon Penny review of Herbal Surgeon: Immortal Cancer Care (Hardcover)
Shifu [Hwang] has written an excellent text to share the knowledge handed down through time to his family. He holds nothing back and has delivered his personal practical application of the lessons within. He has practiced what he has written to help others and promote the general health of those around him. I am confident that others will find it interesting and helpful in promoting health by natural means. Thank you for your good will and willingness to share your knowledge.
– Mike review of Herbal Surgeon: Immortal Cancer Care (Hardcover)
For the depth of information in this book, it is surprisingly easy to read. Mr. Hwang has a very frank and clear style. This is clearly for advanced practitioners/doctors, but it is still accessible to anyone with interest. There may not be another book in the English language that includes much of this content – if there is I doubt it is anywhere as easy to understand..
– Ross Henderson review of Herbal Surgeon: Immortal Cancer Care (Hardcover)
What makes this books so valuable is the huge detail going into the herbal formulas. Not recommended as a light read or for someone who is unfamiliar with Chinese Medicine…But if you have the background you won’t be disappointed. Shifu Huang has done a great job compiling some of the ancient knowledge from the rich past of Chinese Medical Thought.

Shifu Hwang is a teacher of TCM, Traditional Chinese Medicine. He has compiled the wisdom of the ages gained from ancient Masters and categorized it into an easy-to-understand summary format suitable for newcomers to learn its many secrets in his book, Herbal Surgeon: Immortal Cancer Care.
A son of a family line of TCM practitioners, Shifu Hwang had learned from his father and grandfather much about herbs and acupuncture as a child while growing up. He then went on to study the art to add to his familys knowledge base. He was literally born to cure people with his herbal remedies, and has done so with success many times to both people and animals. His approach is clearly presented in a straight-forward, symptom and cure fashion; first determining the ailment, then writing the exact recipe for the herbal remedy along with instructions as how to administer the medicine. The most surprising cure he writes about is a cure for death. Yes, death by either drowning or hanging can be cured; hours after traditional Western medicine would have pronounced the person deceased.
The many cures cover a vast array of ailments from cold and flu symptoms to the various types of cancers, growths, wounds and malicious diseases. The combination of internal and external herbal remedies, various implementation procedures, as well as acupuncture are all combined into a recipe for healing. TCM is an unambiguous methodology and the exact proportions of ingredients are clearly defined for each health issue, unlike Western medicine which is called a practice. Whereas Western medicine cures symptoms, TCM focuses the treatment more on the cause of the health issue.
Much of the information contained within Herbal Surgeon was previously published over 700 years ago, in the Hong Wu year (1373 A.D.) by Master Zao in his work titled, The Secret Surgeon Menu From Immortals. Many Taoist followers were called Immortals because of their longevity of lifespan. Master Wan Lai Seng further contributed to this work throughout his 110 years of life, from 1889 to 1999. Shifu Hwang does not claim this book to be anything other than his summary of the work of others, and humbly acknowledges his respect for the Masters.
Herbal Surgeon is categorized into chapters based on symptom and remedy; also indexed so formulas regarding specific ailments can be quickly found. Even the herbs are identified with botanical drawings for clarity and understanding. The book heightens ones awareness of the complexity and inter-dependency herbal remedies have to our bodies. They have been used successfully for millenniums before the establishment of the FDA. How brief a history Western Medicine has as compared to the many thousands of years of ancient remedies.
Hardcover bound, this book is meant to be preserved for generations and used as an alternative to the famous Physicians Desk Reference (PDR). The secrets revealed and contained within Herbal Surgeon are the collective wisdom of the ages of historical mastery of health and healing. A wise man knows good advice when he hears it; and Herbal Surgeon is exactly that: Good advice.
