The story behind
Cancer is a dreaded disease, and sadly most of us will at some stage be directly or indirectly affected by it. A diagnosis invariably causes a ripple effect, striking fear not only into those just diagnosed, but also to partners, family members and friends, and dealing with this fear and anxiety is hugely important. Many cancer sufferers feel disempowered, confused and afraid of what lies ahead. Our medical system brilliantly provides excellent medical solutions, with chemotherapy, radiation therapy or surgery, but the results would perhaps be even more impactful if we addressed more than just the physical manifestation of the cancer, and rather also dealt with the stress and emotional devastation it leaves in its wake. So let’s use all the weapons in our arsenal – meditation, mindfulness, nutrition, natural therapies; after all we are at our most powerful when we all work together.
