Thank you for looking out for yourself and your loved ones!
In my short, simple book, The Colon Cancer Diet, I simplify the studies for you. By the end, you should be able to tell me three things in under a minute that might cut in half your risk of recurrence and death from colon cancer. As a doctor, when I was recovering from my colon cancer this is the book I wanted to read. A simple, researched book giving me my family’s risk levels, what I should eat, how I should exercise, and how to live with my colon cancer diagnosis. It didn’t exist, so I wrote it for all of us. May you and yours be well!
How did I come to write a book about Colon Cancer?
When I came down with colon cancer (which makes it sound like a cold) I wanted to find a supportive, informed doctor who would give me diet and lifestyle advice to help me stay alive longer.
But my choices seemed to be between a conventional shoulder shrug (we don’t know) and alternative cancer diets that bordered on the criminal. (No soup for you!)
So I put together all the research I could find and made a book full of medicalese and footnotes.
Boy, didn’t that make you excited to buy the book? Yeah, me neither. When you’re hurting it’s hard enough to get through the Sunday funny pages. We don’t need someone to hand us a pile of medical studies, we want “just the facts.”
So I tore that book apart and made a second book that is much, much shorter and easier. A set of simple guidelines that the best research we have says will increase your odds of living longer even though you’ve got a colon cancer diagnosis. I lay out diet and exercise rules that could cut your risk of getting colon cancer again (recurrence) in half.
No, I’m not exaggerating. That’s actually a conservative estimate based on the the studies available. What you do from now on, even though you’ve already been given the cancer diagnosis, can really help you stay alive.
Terrified? I was. I wrote about how different getting cancer is from any other illness. I call it Walking In The Valley Of The Shadow. It’s me talking about wrestling with God and death after getting my diagnosis. It’s still pretty terrifying, but I’m doing better than I was. I hope you do as well.
