Cancer:What Am I Going to Do?

You hear the words and you don’t know what to do, or think, or say.  It is as if the whole world stops and you are in slow motion, or outside your body watching.  And hoping it is really someone else.

There are TWO things I know for sure!!!

Find a helper and friend………………..

Use Integrative Medicine………………………..

ONE I do know when you are told you have cancer, you must find someone you can trust…..with your LIFE!

Have someone hold your hand and walk with you through this experience. 

This may be your friend or spouse or someone objective that can help you sort the information and help you with your decision making.  Initially you are in a state of shock and emotionally it is so overwhelming to try and think.  Unfortunately, this is what they want you to do.  To think about the disease, the treatment options, protocols, logistics is too much.

Integrative Medicine and Cancer

Tell me your experiences with Integrative Medicine below.  I would love to hear your story. 

Integrative medicine combines the discipline of modern science with the wisdom of ancient healing. For people living with chronic or life-threatening illness, it can transform the physical, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of their lives. Integrative medicine may also be valuable to those who are not ill but wish to increase self-awareness, enhance well-being, and help prevent health-related problems.

In treating disease, complementary therapies are not substitutes for mainstream medical care; they are used in concert with medical treatment to help alleviate stress, reduce pain and anxiety, manage symptoms, and promote a feeling of well-being.” Sloan Kettering

Integrative medicine is the future.  All of us must come together as one and use the best of the best medicine to heal the world.  We can find solutions to our health challenges and we can overcome any disease.   We can overcome cancer.  We can be cancer survivors or cancer triumphants. 

Listen to my healing journey – How I Survived Cancer

I recently was interviewed for a podcast with Rebecca Sahm and Astara Briski about my healing journey and how I was able to heal myself from cancer 13 years ago, with integrative medicine.

I hope you enjoy it and if you have a cancer survivor story you want told, I’d love to interview you for my upcoming podcast series that we are getting ready to launch in the coming weeks called, The Cancer Survivor Podcast.
