Recommended Reading: Anticancer Living: Transform Your Life and Health with the Mix of Six

During the recent Society for Integrative Oncology International Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona, I met with Dr. Lorenzo Cohen, PhD, from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. I am recommending his book Anticancer Living: Transform Your Life and Health with the Mix of Six to anyone who is interested in reducing cancer risk by focusing on six key areas of health and wellness.

His insight is useful to decrease the risk of cancer and improve the likelihood of long-term survival.

Introducing the concept of the “Mix of Six,” they make an informed case that AntiCancer Living consists of six lifestyle pillars of health that are linked with cancer risk and/or influence outcomes for those with cancer:

1) Diet
2) Physical activity
3) Stress management
4) Sleep
5) Love and support
6) Environmental toxins

This information is a valuable, science-based approach to wellness.

Building on ideas pioneered in David Servan-Schreiber’s book Anticancer: A New Way of Life, the information became the basis for a research study developed by Dr. Cohen and Servan-Schreiber at MD Anderson. This new book is co-authored with Alison Jefferies, MEd. You can read an excerpt from the book or listen to a clip from the audiobook.

Patient-focused treatment, and an individualized approach to oncology means Dr. Norleena Gullett is not just treating cancer, she's treating the whole person.
