Doing yoga twice a day seems to improve the quality of life of men being treated for prostate cancer, by reducing the side effects of radiation, which may include fatigue, sexual dysfunction, and urinary incontinence.
As an integrative physician and cancer survivor, it is comforting to know that this much-needed program is available to pick up where the office visit ends. The Anticancer Lifestyle Program is an invaluable and highly accessible resource, informed by science, that one can use at their own pace. The lifestyle changes recommended in the course can reduce the risk of cancer as well as other debilitating diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease.
I wholeheartedly recommend this program.

“I have made a sizable advance on assessing who in my life is toxic and who is not. Those who are toxic I remove from my life. Those who are nourishing I embrace…. I practice meditation almost daily. I stretch and do yoga several times a week. I take every opportunity to laugh out loud.”
