Living In Balance

At the age of 29, soon after graduating from the University of Arizona with an MBA, Doug Nau was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Luekemia. At that point, Doug realized two things… his Luekemia diagnosis had changed his life forever, and that – previous to his diagnosis – his life had been “out of balance.”

Doug has since become a Certified Life Coach and a Certified Health and Wellness Consultant and has dedicated his life and his work to helping others find “balance.”

Living in Balance is wonderfully written, and is full of techniques that are easy to understand and can be implemented by anyone and everyone to help them restore balance to their lives.
