Synopsis

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.

 

Milenka "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.
