Kelly Turner

Kelly Turner, PhD, is a researcher, lecturer, and consultant in the field of Integrative Oncology. Her specialized research focus is the “unexpected remission” of cancer, which is a remission that occurs either in the absence of Western medicine or after Western medicine has failed to achieve remission. Her interest in complementary medicine began when she received her B.A. from Harvard University, and it later became the sole focus of her doctoral studies at the University of California, Berkeley. Her dissertation research included a year-long trip around the world, during which she traveled to ten different countries to interview 50 holistic healers and 20 “spontaneous” remission cancer survivors about their healing practices and techniques. Kelly is currently working on a book for cancer patients which summarizes her research findings, as well as a website that will continue to collect cases of Unexpected Remission. While Dr. Turner's research focuses on anomalies, she is a strong proponent of Western oncology treatments and she consults on how to integrate them with complementary treatments. She also provides one-on-one Integrative Cancer Consultations and guided meditation instruction to cancer patients.
