It is time to attack cancer with both barrels. Western medicine can be very effective, but is limited to the physical body. Anyone challenged with cancer understands that this dis-ease assaults the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of self. When you complement Western medicine with Eastern medicine you have a recipe that heals the body, mind, and spirit. It also opens more opportunities for support for both the individual fighting cancer and their family.

There’s a lot you can do when diagnosed with cancer. There are books to read, healing places to go, professionals to see. The point is to bring positivity, hope, support, love, and relief to this journey. You must strive to balance the fear, grief, anger, and separateness.

NCCAM

The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine is an arm of NIH that helps people challenged with the diagnosis of cancer and other dis-eases by recommending a change in nutrition in addition to energy workers, acupuncturists, massage therapists, and supplementation. This organization validates complementary and alternative medicine (Eastern medicine) as effective healing modalities. There is sufficient evidence to prove that energy work, acupuncture, massage therapy, and specific diets (all raw, anti-inflammatory, juicing) will reduce stress levels, encourage growth of healthy cells, discourage growth of cancer cells, decrease pain, inflammation, nausea, and toxicity of chemotherapy and radiation during this traumatic time for the body, mind and soul.

Nutrition – Green yes. Sugar no.

Why change your diet? Ample research confirms that certain “foods” feed or starve cancer cells. In his book, The Anti-Cancer Diet, Dr. David Servan-Shreiber explains the correlation between sugar and cancer. Dark leafy vegetables are known to feed healthy cells and provide the body with essential nutrients to facilitate the therapeutic process. At the Institute for Living Foods and the Hippocrates Institute, they have studied the health and anti-cancer benefits of eating organic, vegan, raw and juicing.  They teach you how to eat in a way that boosts your immune system and your body’s ability to heal.

Acupuncture & Energy Work – no down side

Acupuncture and hands on healing have been recognized and practiced in the Eastern culture for centuries. Because they are new to the West you might be curious and skeptical. Both acupuncture and energy work focus on healing the whole person and help balance all aspects of self (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual). These (and other) alternative modalities can reduce inflammation, pain, nausea, stress, and anxiety. They are a safe place to vent, cry, and release emotional and mental pain. Alternative medicine will encourage you to look at all areas of your life. Where do you allow chaos to rule? Where do you need to create stronger and healthier boundaries? Where is your “no”? Prayer, meditation, and journaling will be encouraged to release stress and create a stronger bond with your higher power. When you join East with West you can fight cancer with greater vitality, strength, and energy. In these places every aspect of self is held in healing energy and love.

The best part of the complementary and alternative medicines expressed in this article: they can’t hurt you! They can only help. There is no down-side.

Prevention

The best way to fight cancer is to prevent cancer. Make sure that you see a dermatologist regularly to have body checks. Have your mammograms, pap smears, and colonoscopies on time. Want an alternative to mammograms? Try thermography. It isn’t covered by insurance but is far less invasive. Reduce stress in your life by meditation, prayer, exercise, therapeutic massage. Every time you go to your dentist, remove a metal filling to prevent metal toxicity. Finally, do what Kim Tapper, Kay Colgan, and I have been recommending for years and years, get healthy. Change your diet – limit junk food, fast food, and sugar. Exercise. Slather on sunscreen. Make sure you have enough emotional support in your life. See a therapist, coach or energy worker on a regular basis. When cancer is the ultimate enemy, living a lifestyle that promotes wellness is your best offensive strategy.

It is time to Reinvent Your Fight Against Cancer. Have East meet West for the most effective strategy to heal and stay strong during this journey.

“Cindy is not just an energy worker. She is a healer of the body & soul, organizer of the mind and thoughts and a very personal data processor. I came to her, at a friend’s recommendation, when I was diagnosed with Stage 2b breast cancer. She not only helped guide me through this period of my life, she raised me up and got me excited about all the positive things that can come out of any crisis. Now that I have my health back I continue to see Cindy to stay on track. She is refreshingly real, open and honest.” Courtney R., Client of Transformational Healing
