Author(s): Ian Gawler
You Can Conquer Cancer was a revolutionary book when first published in 1984. It has sold more than 250,000 copies worldwide and has been translated into fourteen languages. It has become a classic and one of the most widely read books on the subject of cancer management and survival. This edition is completely updated. It contains whole sections which provide important new information and self-help techniques. The book, remarkable for its clarity, enlarges upon what is truly integrated, holistic approach to cancer; emphasising nutrition, the power of the mind, meditation, family and social support and the spiritual dimension of life. Dr. Ian Gawler, as a young veterinarian and decathlon athlete, had his right leg amputated with bone cancer in 1975. The cancer returned later that year. Against almost impossible odds, he recovered and went on to found Australia's first life-style based, cancer self-help and support program in 1981.
Dr Ian Gawler is one of Australia's best known cancer survivors and advocates of a healthy lifestyle. His story offers hope and inspiration to people everywhere. The self help techniques that he developed have helped many to convert hope into sustained health and peace of mind. A pioneer in Mind/Body Medicine, Dr Gawler is known for his clarity and good humour.
