    Thriving Proof

    The thought of cancer provokes fear whether one is predisposed genetically, has experienced the disease's devastating effects in their own or loved one's lives or harbors dread. Relief is found by seeking out knowledge, resources, discovering what is within one's control to change, and how to espouse purpose and meaning in life. All of these are addressed in Five to Thrive, a book written by two highly reknowned professional cancer specialist women who have walked their talk during their own cancer journeys.
    In 2009 I came to know co-author Lise Alschuler when my mom became a patient of hers. I learned a tremendous amount from Dr. Alschuler and am fortunate to have tried and tested the guidance found in Five to Thrive for myself even before the book was written. That advice currently protects me against the hereditary odds of getting cancer, manage ongoing stress, and enables me to live a more joyful and healthy life. I am also comforted that my mom was able to experience an extra year of quality living after beginning naturopathic treatment while I simultaneously became a better support person.
    Five to Thrive embraces the mind/body/spirit dimensions of personhood. Through learning what, and how, foods, vitamins, and supplements can enhance the body's own immune system, one empowers their internal cellular army to be equipped, able, and ready for action should the mutant celled enemy we know as cancer proliferate. Discussion of the five pathways that cancer exploits and how to guard them are addressed utilizing a reader friendly format accompanied by graphs and insights from the author's own cancer histories. Implementing movement and exercise not only sustains one physically, but brings calm and positively channels emotions. Through the author's encouragement and specific tips even the most overwhelmed person will be impelled to get off the couch and start exercising. Proper support is found through connecting with nature, people, animals and our spiritual beliefs to find the love, joy, inspiration and optimism that keeps one mentally strong and turns outward in service to others.
    Through the Five to Thrive plan, I have the ability to view cancer as both a preventable condition or one in which I never need feel hopeless or helpless against. In living out principles found in the book, I am eating foods and utilizing vitamins and supplements that keep my body's fighting forces at the ready while simultaneously bringing more youthful vitality and a glowing complexion. Daily swimming, yoga and spending time in nature brings peace and calm to handle the daily assaults of modern life and heal grief. As the book encourages individual spirituality, I have entered deeper into a relationship with God that connects me to the people and animals, whom I believe He created and placed here to share love with and care for. This is the path Five to Thrive has helped me to walk. It is one away from cancer and towards all the good of what our time on earth is meant to consist. My only regret is that my mother did not start treatment with Dr. Alschuler until rediagnosed in stage 4. Perhaps she would still be here.
    Each of our lives is an individual journey with different roads on which to travel.I believe that Five to Thrive can help other readers best satisfy and choose their own life-sustaining path whether they utilize this book toremain cancer free or live positively with and beyond the disease.

    The No-Brainer Book of the Decade!

    As a Medical Doctor constantly seeking to help people take control of risks they thought to be 'inevitable', I can say that this is one book I shall unreservedly recommend! But it isn't just for people who have an especially high risk of cancer... nor just for cancer survivors looking to put some extra distance between themselves and this dreadful disease. No, this is a book for everyone. 'Five To Thrive' tackles the five key pathways that strongly influence whether or not we will develop or prevent cancer. Until recently we were led to believe that our genes were our destiny. In fact this is not so! The leading-edge science of 'epigenetics' now shows us that we can influence how our genes behave. Like a child prone to misbehaving, it is clear that people who are at a genetically high risk of cancer need take firm control to keep cancer at bay. This book shows them how! And because the Authors appreciate that these key, informed life-style + nutritional choices must be sustained, they have intentionally made it all simple to grasp, easy to implement, certain to stick. It takes a huge amount of understanding and experience to take something as complex as 'epigenetic' science - and create an easy-to-follow plan! So congratulations to the Authors - Karolyn Gazella and Dr Lise Alschuler - it's phenomenal. Your book sets a precedent for all texts aiming to make a real difference to people's lives through valid, easy-to-integrate, high-science information.

    Everyone should read this book

    I haven't had cancer, but my family history makes me concerned about getting it. This book is great for anyone who wants to prevent cancer or a recurrence. I learned tips that I immediately started using in my daily life. Beautifully written and very practical!
