During time spent living and eating among the French that I came to know and love the Mediterranean diet. This experience — coupled with a brush with cancer — inspired me to write Zest for Life: The Mediterranean Anti-Cancer Diet, an evidence-based nutrition guide and cookbook for anyone seeking to reduce their risk of cancer or its recurrence.

Not long after publication, the book was published in German as Appetit auf Leben (Herbig Verlag, 2013). The book was heavily inspired by the work of Dr. David Servan-Schreiber, author of Anticancer: A New Way Of Life, with whom I worked closely while living in France. (I apply his protocol in my Anti-Cancer Coaching Program.)

After Cancer Care

After the intense experience and range of emotion that comes with surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy (or all three), cancer patients often find themselves with little or no guidance when it comes to their health post-treatment. After Cancer Care is the much-needed authoritative, approachable guide that fills this gap. It includes information on how to maintain physical health—with chapters on epigenetics, nutrition, and exercise—as well as emotional health through stress management techniques.
