Licensed marriage, family and child counselor Tanya Harter Pierce never thought she would write a book about cancer treatment. But when a family member was diagnosed with cancer, Pierce began researching non-toxic alternative options. She was stunned to learn just how many effective approaches are available – and that they often have better success rates than current conventional treatments

Because this information wasn’t easy to understand or sort through quickly, Pierce organized what she learned into “Outsmart Your Cancer: Alternative Non-Toxic Treatments That Work.” She will sign copies of her book from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday at Neighbors Bookstore in the Village Center. This user-friendly guide will save people valuable time in their process of making an informed decision.

Although there are many excellent books written on the subject, Pierce soon discovered that most tend to cover just one type of treatment or provide a comprehensive review of all treatments- even those that are no longer available. Since traveling out of the country is difficult for many people, she focuses primarily on those treatment options available in the United States.

“The fact that I am not a medical practitioner is actually a positive qualification in my case,” Pierce said. “Too often, doctors are blinded by their conventional training or carry a bias toward the one type of treatment they have specialized in. Their expertise is invaluable, but not always conducive to giving the public a broad understanding of a variety of approaches.”
