A cancer diagnosis is terrifying and life changing, and the process towards recovery is long and arduous; but with the right tools, can be mostly successful. A feeling of hope and empowerment is tremendously helpful in turning health around and discussion with knowledgeable physicians can go a long way to putting your mind at ease. But so often we do not know what questions to ask, to help us feel better. Doctors are inundated with patients and do not always have the time to reassure us that all will be well, and indeed, the events of 2020 and COVID 19 have resulted in a reduction in hospital and doctor consultations for fear of exposure, and this has left our other health conditions floundering. In many cases we have been left to our own devices, not knowing where to turn or what to do.
Breast cancer, or indeed any cancer, needs care and individual treatment and we, as the breast cancer sufferers, need a plan of action and reassurance that what we do for our own health has a basis in science and will support and not harm us.
Indeed, in the treatment of cancer there are many forgotten therapies that have positive and beneficial results and are within our own power to include in our daily activities, with confidence… knowing we are making good choices.
The following forgotten therapies are all beneficial in either reducing tumour size, increasing survival or even reducing our risk of contracting cancer in the first place and yet many specialists do not add these to the standard treatment.
The list includes:
u Vitamin D levels
u Genetic involvement and microbiome
Whether you adopt these yourself, or even use the studies and links provided to open a discussion with your doctor, after doing this course you will be armed with beneficial, scientifically researched therapies that may assist you to feel a sense of positive empowerment and no longer passive fear.
I encourage you to discuss these with your doctor. We forget, in our anxiety, that we pay the doctors to serve us and, in that way, they are service providers. The substantial fees are paid so that they can help ‘us’ and this includes being willing to answer any questions you have, as well as being willing to support well-founded and researched therapies you may wish to include in your journey towards health. Knowledge is power and it is my intention in this course, to give you additional information that, as you progress through the course, you will see can only help you get well again. Nothing in the information presented in this course will harm you and you will walk away with valuable information.
