If you or a loved one are suffering the physical and emotional distress of anxiety, depression, or PTSD, my heart goes out to you. These illnesses represent some of the most intense forms of anguish any human being can experience. I also have some wonderful news: over the last 30 years my colleagues and I have been assembling a suite of integrative approaches that target the very roots of these disorders. We're now regularly seeing complete recoveries from them all - often in much less time than we once thought such healing would take. Please avail yourself of the resources on my site, and reach out to me should you wish to connect in person.
Forthcoming June 2021 My Tropic of Cancer: Living & Dying With a Dread Disease
My Tropic of Cancer: Living & Dying With a Dread Disease tells the story of cancer’s passage through three generations of the Mintie family. This deeply personal account relates the heartbreak, hope and hilarity that travel with a life-threatening diagnosis. It includes gritty, day-to-day detail of the author's life as a cancer patient, and the wider environmental, social and political milieus of cancer's arising. Tropic shares one family's psychological and spiritual responses to cancer, inviting the reader along on an intimate, inter-generational awakening to the perils and possibilities that travel with this extraordinary disease. Tropic tells, finally, an exuberantly hopeful story, one likely to encourage any family touched by cancer to find its own authentic, life-affirming and human response.
Advance praise for My Tropic of Cancer:
Daniel's new book shares the story of his cancer career – and a great deal more. Albert Camus used the magnifying glass of bubonic plague to look deeply into the human condition. Daniel utilizes the lens of cancer to do the same. His book helps us see that while a life-threatening disease is always life-changing, it changes nothing essential. Cancer is an opportunity for us all to see more clearly the way things are. As a physician intimately involved in cancer care, I wholeheartedly recommend “My Tropic Of Cancer” to anyone whose life has been touched by this disease.
