The path to ultimate health begins with an inward journey
Cancer Support

It should be understood − Cancer is not one disease, it is hundreds if not thousands. It is this variation, which makes it so difficult to understand.

Furthermore, it is the reason why some people are healed with traditional medical therapy and others with natural therapies and why some lose the battle and their lives.

The health of individual immune systems is paramount to withstanding disease. It’s an area, which was long overlooked by traditional medicine. In a similar way, it is only in recent years that the medical professionals linked the connection of nutrition to health.

The attitude of treating symptoms rather than the cause does dis-service to us all − for true health and effectiveness of treating disease, one must look first at individual immune systems to discover why it is ‘malfunctioning’.

A highly functioning immune system has the ability to prevent and cure disease.

You have many choices to make about your cancer treatment. One choice you might be thinking about is complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). CAM is the term for medical products and practices that are not part of standard care

People with cancer may use CAM to
  • Help cope with the side effects of cancer treatments.
  • Ease worries of cancer treatment and related stress.
  • Feel that they are doing something more to help their own care.

Why would people with cancer be interested in complementary and alternative methods?
People with cancer might think about using alternative or complementary methods for a number of reasons:

  • They’d like to relieve the side effects of mainstream cancer treatment without having to take more medicine.
  • They are seeking a less unpleasant treatment approach that might have fewer side effects.
  • They want to take an active role in improving their own health and wellness.
  • They prefer alternative theories of health and disease, as well as alternative treatments.

Complementary and alternative methods are often appealing because they use your own body, your own mind, or things found in nature.

The decision to use alternative or complementary methods is an important one, and it’s yours to make.

Prevention Strategies
There is so much you can do to lower your risk for cancer. But please don’t wait until you get the diagnosis. You have to take preventative steps NOW. It’s much easier to prevent cancer than to treat it once it takes hold.
