Banyen's Description: 

Cancer as a Wake-Up Call is an easy-to-read guide to an integrative approach to preventing and treating cancer. Conventional medicine focuses on attacking cancer cells, but doesn't address why a person gets sick. But cancer is a systemic disease manifesting a global condition locally. In this well-researched volume, oncologist Mara Laura Nasi offers holistic approaches to cancer. Rather than trying to disprove traditional methods of dealing with cancer, she demonstrates the limitations of seeing and treating cancer merely as an invader that must be eradicated; why do some people's bodies metabolize mutations without forming cancer while someone else exposed to the same carcinogens develops cancer? Why do some people see cancer return after it’s eradicated while others see no remission? Nasi invites the reader to look at cancer from a whole-person perspective that takes into account experiences, environment, and the full picture.

This book is for anyone with cancer, anyone who works with those who have cancer, and for all of us who know someone who has cancer. It offers a treasury of approaches to living with and beyond cancer, bringing holistic perspectives into focus as a path on the journey of cancer.”
—Roshi Joan Halifax, author of Standing at the Edge: Finding Freedom Where Fear and Courage Meet

“In Cancer as a Wake-Up Call, Dr. Nasi gifts us with an engaging and entertaining overview of holistic cancer care. This incredible resource presents a huge amount of information in easily digestible doses with the assistance of charming illustrations, valuable Take-Home Messages, and vital Practice for Healthy Living recommendations. The patient interactions and quotations from a host of international sages really help target the message. A must-read for anyone living with or beyond cancer, the people that love them, and hopefully, for their oncologists!” —Donald Abrams, editor (with Andrew Weil) of Integrative Oncology
