Integrative oncologist M. Laura Nasi, M.D. discusses her cutting-edge guide, Cancer as a Wake-Up Call: An Oncologist's Integrative Approach to What You Can Do to Become Whole Again

Dr. M. Laura Nasi presents a new way of looking at how we view and treat cancer. With current advances in medicine, we're learning more about the ways different aspects of our lives and health impact and interact with one another--why does one long-term smoker get diagnosed with stage-4 lung cancer while another remains cancer-free? Why does someone exposed to a known carcinogen get sick while someone else is apparently immune? What seemingly unrelated factors end up playing key roles in disease etiology, progression, and prognosis?

In this well-researched, inspiring, easy-to-read guide, Dr. Nasi offers an integrative, whole-person approach to cancer, a systemic disease manifesting a global condition locally. Conventional medicine focuses on attacking malignant cells. Integrative medicine encourages chemo and radiation when necessary, while also focusing on a patient's internal balance to make it more difficult for the cancer to advance. Nasi draws on the latest research on the PNIE (psycho-neuro-immuno-endocrine) network to help our systems recognize, repair, and/or eliminate the cancer cells, focusing on nutrition, stress-management, exercise, adequate sleep, healthy relationships, and other body/mind/spirit modalities. Dr. Nasi encourages patients to become empowered agents of their own care.

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we look forward to continuing to provide the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores when we can assure authors and guests that it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we are working on an exciting list of virtual events for both adults and children and we look forward to exploring this new format with you.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
