Introduction • Reviews
As a top academician in her home country of
the former Yugoslavia, Mina Dobic led a privileged life. That all
changed in 1987, when Mina was diagnosed with stage IV ovarian cancer
that had metastasized to her liver, bones, and lymph system.
Mina’s doctors gave her only two months to live.
She reviewed the literature and quickly realized that the chemotherapy
and radiation treatment offered by her physicians was not a viable
option. Instead, she did something remarkable: She decided to adopt
the macrobiotic way of life. Six and a half months later, Mina Dobic
was cancer free. My Beautiful Life tells her story.
The course that Mina Dobic and her family took
is a modern odyssey that weaves together many of the critical issues
of the last half century--the struggle between repression and a
free society, the conflict between conventional medicine and holistic
health, and the forces that pull the modern family apart even as
members strive to hold it together. During her journey to wellness,
Mina passed from cancer victim to cancer survivor, from patient
to healer, from student to teacher. My Beautiful Life not
only eloquently explains how Mina recovered from cancer, but also
details how cancer can be prevented through diet and a simple philosophy
of living in balance with nature.
"Mina" Dobic, PhD, was born, raised, and educated in the
former Yugoslavia. She became a professor of Linguistics and World
Literature, and later Director of Art and Education for several
major national radio stations. In former Yugoslavia, she was honored
with the highest award given in journalism, The Truth, equivalent
to the Pulitzer Prize.
In 1987, Mina and her family
came to the United States to study macrobiotics at the Kushi Institute
in Boston, Massachusetts. While there, she went on to become a teacher
and counselor. In 1990, Mina moved to California, established her
own macrobiotic educational center, and organized the first macrobiotic
support group for cancer survivors in Hollywood. Vogue magazine
called Mina Dobic "L.A.’s most expert macrobiotic health consultant."
An internationally acclaimed macrobiotic counselor, Mina lectures
throughout North America and Europe, inspiring others with her wisdom,
love, and compassion.
