Natural breast cancer remedies

Natural breast cancer remedies

Up to 75 per cent of cancer patients are turning to complementary therapies
For 75 per cent of breast cancer patients, their use of complementary treatments such as vitamin supplements, meditation and music therapy is a closely guarded secret. Not from family and friends, but from their doctors. They fear being dismissed or ridiculed because many cancer specialists are sceptical about the benefits of complementary medicine. But such treatments could be why cancer sufferers are tolerating toxic chemotherapy better than ever.

A sense of control

A recent survey of Australian women with breast cancer found 87 per cent had used complementary therapies, with many using four or more, according to the National Breast and Ovarian Cancer Centre. However, only one in four tell their doctor.
The centre says complementary medicine can "empower" women and give them a greater sense of control over their cancer, but it remains cautious. "Most alternate therapies have not been assessed for efficacy or safety. Some have been found to be harmful or ineffective," it says.
That's why the National Breast Cancer Foundation is funding two studies into the interaction between complementary medicine and conventional treatment. Professor Stephen Clarke, an oncologist from the Sydney Cancer Centre, is leading one of the studies, into the use of medical Qigong, an ancient Chinese practice of physical activity and meditation to harmonise mind, body and spirit. The study will examine fatigue, cognitive function, satisfaction with sexual life and inflammation. In a previous study, cancer patients doing Qigong had lower levels of an inflammatory biomarker in the blood.

If I just had a different thought back then.

If I just had a different thought back then. by Philip Martin

Some very profound moments in life are also profoundly simple and yet, life changing. We proceed through life having our own unique experiences and all the experiences and our associated feelings and meanings, make up the story of our life.

Here today, it can feel as if we are a product of our story, of all that has occurred before this moment. If life has been hard and there has been much pain and suffering, it seems as if we can do nothing about it, as what has already occurred, has happened and therefore unchangeable. And as we are a product of all this unchangeable history, we feel powerless to have a better/happier life now and in the future. Read more >>>

Here is alovely insightful piece, from The author is Ellie Large


After a while you learn the subtle difference between
holding a hand and chaining a soul,
and you learn that love doesn't mean leaning,
and that company doesn't mean security,
and you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts,
and presents aren't promises,
and you begin to accept your defeats
with your head held high and your eyes open,
with the grace of a woman, [adult]
not the grief of a child ,
and you learn to build all your roads on today
because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans,
as futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.
After a while you learn that
even sunshine burns if you get too much....
so you plant your own garden and
decorate your own soul,
instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
and you learn that you really can endure
that you really are strong
and you really do have worth
and you learn and you learn
and with every goodbye
you learn some more.
