The FOREWORD of Cancer: Optimizing Survival is written by one of Canada's foremost Oncologist/Surgeons.
This book takes a look at Cancer from the perspective of an Integrative Therapies Practitioner, and a Cancer Survivor. It contains all the information cancer patients want to know right away.
The word "Cancer" wreaks havoc in the minds and lives of both individuals and families. IT SHOULD NOT! It is simply a disease against which we must fight! ….. not unlike any other illness. It has differing outcomes for different people.
When an individual receives a Cancer diagnosis, there is often an immediate tendency to assume the worst. DO NOT ASSUME THE WORST!
Treatment of this disease has changed both in perspective, and in reality. Cancer treatments have come a long way, particularly in recent years.
For treatment to be effective, it is best for folks with Cancer to maintain a positive and optimistic disposition. Those who do this are most likely to have the best outcomes.
It is important for individuals with Cancer to refrain from relating this disease to its "stage", and statistics (which are now available in abundance on the net). PEOPLE ARE NOT SIMPLY STATISTICS, and Cancer and recovery from it are not just about its "stage".
A persons mind, attitude and disposition are his/her most valued tools to effectively battle this illness. It is important to live in the present and get out of bed every day, with an objective to banish sickness and encourage healing, in every way possible.
Cancer provides individuals with an opportunity to embrace new and healthier ways of life, which will best allow them to optimize daily living . There are so many great and inspiring stories of survival ........ it is important to embrace them and get on with living and life..... to LIVE life in the healthiest and happiest way possible!
