After being diagnosed with cancer when she was 32, Elissa Goodman explored holistic alternatives and combined them with traditional treatments and was able to beat the disease. Her husband wasn’t as fortunate; he succumbed to Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma when he was only 45 after a regimen of doctor-prescribed chemotherapy and two bone marrow transplants. Her personal experience led her to realize the many ways in which nutrition and lifestyle affect our ability to deal with health challenges.

In “Cancer Hacks”, Goodman has put together a comprehensive plan designed to offer some common-sense, natural and holistic advice to deal with the fear and uncertainty so many people face when confronted by this terrible disease. The various “hacks” described in the book are intended to help those dealing with cancer, or those whose loved ones may be facing the battle. Her suggestions are practical and easily incorporated into day-to-day living.

Also included is a 7-day cleanse regimen for those looking to reset their bodies and refocus their energies on a fuller and healthier lifestyle

One of the most important things I can do as a clinician is to help my clients find good referrals for their healthcare needs. Several years ago, my health was compromised. Elissa helped me to make some significant changes in how I approached my own nutrition. With her guidance and support, she helped me achieve noticeable health benefits within just the first month! Elissa’s fund of knowledge and experience is truly impressive. Combine that with her incredible heart, patience, and encouragement, and she is, quite simply, a winner both personally and professionally. In addition to the many clients and friends I have referred to her, Elissa has also helped members of my own family achieve improved health. She clearly passes the ultimate measure that makes for an excellent referral: she passes the “family test”! So, when it comes to the area of nutrition, it’s a no brainer. I always refer friends, colleagues, and clients to her. Elissa, is a joy to work with! Work with her. Your body and your soul will thank you for it! Read this book and you will learn why she is one of the most sought after healthcare professionals in Los Angeles!

The book has a well written content on the psychological and the habitual change to help in the fight against the cancerous effects to our beloved ones and our lives too. The book is written by Elissa who has had past experience in the fight against this killer disease and hope to give a good foundation to any body in need of such information.
