LIVE LONG, LIVE STRONG: An Integrative Approach to Cancer Care and Prevention
A must-read book for anyone who is going through cancer treatment and the people who care about them, as well as cancer survivors and those who are interested in living a long life without cancer.
It has been said that “aging is a major carcinogen!”
Why is aging such a threat to you getting cancer? It’s pretty simple—the longer you live, the more errors your genes accumulate from infections and environmental carcinogens as well as a decline in your cancer-fighting immunity and frequent stress response. Over time, these mutations are duplicated repeatedly as your cells divide and it’s easy to see how it can eventually lead to cancer. If you desire to prevent cancer in your lifetime or perhaps you are currently battling cancer, you must start working on your healthy-aging program today.
In Live Long, Live Strong: An Integrative Approach to Cancer Care and Prevention, Dr. Mao shares his 30 plus years of experience in integrative oncology—working collaboratively with oncologists and thousands of cancer patients. Now in this groundbreaking book, with his associate Frances Lam, L.Ac. at the Tao of Wellness, they provide an overview of the latest information on the causes and mechanism behind cancer, current diagnostics as well as cutting edge treatments in conventional oncology and the collaborative model of care between Eastern and Western medicine.
The authors present evidence-based treatment modalities, including acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, diet and nutrition, mind-body practice of qi gong and meditation that have been used effectively to reduce side effects of chemotherapy and radiation, boost energy and vitality, and restore healthy functions in patients’ immune system. Equally important, the book reveals preventive steps everyone can take to lower his or her lifetime cancer risks as well as decrease recurrence rate for cancer survivors. In addition, they share stories of some of their patients’ cancer journey in the hopes of inspiring the most important healing power within—the human spirit!
