The way we live affects our health.

Cancer is not simply about cells growing at an abnormal pace, but also about the incapacity of our psycho-neuro-immune-endocrine intelligence network (PNIE) to recognize these cells and defeat them. Becoming aware that cancer is multi-causal is the first step toward regaining health. A healthy diet, exercise, rest, stress control, self-awareness and a positive attitude are key points in the process of healing.

With thirty years of experience in medicine and almost a decade as an oncologist, Dr. María Laura Nasi suggests in her new book, Cancer as a Wake up Call, ways to confront this illness from a holistic point of view, as a whole person.

Based on scientific investigations, her patients’ testimonies, and her own life experience, she explains the possible causes of internal imbalance and teaches how to reverse these to arrive at the fundamental conclusion that in most cases, combining conventional medical treatment with other treatments that strengthen the immune system, we have the potential to cure this illness from its core.

Cancer as a Wake-Up Call is for those who face this illness, not only as protagonists, but also as witnesses. It is a valuable and brave contribution for everyone who wants to connect body, mind and soul to sustain and regain health and live a simple and happy life.
