CHICAGO, Oct. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Definitive Guide to Thriving After Cancer has a very unique perspective. The authors are a naturopathic oncologist and a health writer who are both cancer survivors. Featuring the cutting-edge Five to Thrive Plan, this book takes a holistic approach to navigating the oftentimes confusing world of cancer recovery.

"There are many things I like about Dr. Lise Alschuler and Karolyn Gazella's well-written, easy to follow guide. Most importantly it provides clear steps that are needed to battle back to optimal health after a cancer diagnosis," said Dr. Michael Murray, best-selling author and leading natural health expert. "And, it is not just for cancer patients. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to improve their health."

Written as a companion to their widely acclaimed The Definitive Guide to Cancer, this new book offers straightforward, scientifically studied strategies for achieving optimal health by supporting five key pathways: immune, inflammation, hormones, insulin sensitivity, and digestion and detoxification. The authors describe how readers can transform their internal landscape by focusing on critical actions organized within five core strategies: diet, movement, dietary supplements, rejuvenation, and spirit.

"It is very important that our advice is based on strong scientific evidence, and, furthermore, has been validated in my clinical practice," said Dr. Alschuler.  "And, which has been proven to be effective in our own lives," adds Karolyn.

The Definitive Guide to Thriving After Cancer has the power to inspire and empower anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer, is concerned about their own cancer risk, or those wanting to revitalize their health and wellness journey.   

"This book provides a powerful voice of compassion, optimism, and soulfulness," said Phillippa J. Cheetham, MD, Columbia University Medical Center.
