About

When we think of the many Thrivers we have met along our journey, our hearts expand. We are both humbled and exhilarated by their influence on our work. To all of the Thrivers whose paths we have crossed, thank you, and to all of the Thrivers we have not yet met, we can’t wait to meet you!

—Dr. Lise Alschuler and Karolyn Gazella

Five to Thrive® is a multi-media educational initiative created by Dr. Lise Alschuler and Karolyn A. Gazella that features an informational website, books, radio show, videos and social support networks.

Dr. Lise Alschuler and Karolyn A. Gazella are a vibrant duo who, as cancer survivors themselves, are on a mission to inform patients and physicians about the benefits of integrative cancer care. They are dedicated to transforming cancer care by educating people with cancer, their loved ones, and their healthcare providers about the value of combining natural practices and therapies with conventional cancer treatments. They have written two books on the topic of cancer. The Definitive Guide to Cancer is a comprehensive reference book about integrative treatment and their most recent book is Five to Thrive: Your Cutting-Edge Cancer Prevention Plan. With a deep and personal perspective, the authors embody what integrative medicine can do. Inspired by their individual and collaborative journeys through cancer, their mission is to encourage those diagnosed with cancer to become empowered, informed promoters of their own health and wellbeing. They urge patients diagnosed with cancer to not only survive the disease but to reach the ultimate level of healing.
