Augusta, ME, March 23, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- A Maine Naturopathic Doctor has written The Colon Cancer Diet about simple diet changes that dramatically lower the chances of recurrence for colon cancer patients.
Diagnosed with colon cancer himself last October, Dr. Christopher Maloney, N.D., is on leave to recover from surgery. He went looking for a diet book specifically designed for patients who already have a colon cancer diagnosis.
“There’s nothing out there,” Dr. Maloney noted. “I contacted the national advocacy groups, and they had no book recommendations. It’s like once you get the colon cancer diagnosis diet and lifestyle no longer matter.”
Dr. Maloney wanted to simplify the medical literature for other patients. “When you’re in pain and terrified of dying, you don’t want to read a long book full of statistics. My goal is to give patients four basic guidelines that will lower their chances of dying. If they can tell me what they need to do in a minute or less, then my book has been a success.”
Prior to his diagnosis, Dr. Christopher Maloney was in family practice in Augusta, Maine for over a decade. He received his Naturopathic Medical degree from the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon and his diploma of Premedical studies from Harvard University.
“As a Naturopathic Doctor, my patients expect me to be healthy,” Dr. Maloney relates. “But colon cancer isn’t a reflection of where we are now. It takes colon cancer a decade to grow. I think it’s important for patients to look at me and understand that you can be doing everything you can do to be healthy now and still have things go wrong. Negative self-judgment has no place in a plan for healing and recovery.”
The Colon Cancer Diet is on sale electronically at Smashwords in honor of Colon Cancer Awareness Month. The book is also available from Amazon and Kindle. While Dr. Maloney is on leave, other licensed Naturopathic Doctors can be found through mand.org.
