If you, or anyone close to you, have ever been diagnosed with cancer, there’s a likelihood you have suddenly become open to lot of different methods, in addition to the conventional treatments, to survive. Until you heard that terrible diagnosis, words such as ‘death’ and ‘cancer’ might have been whispered, but rarely spoken out loud. Many people want to be involved in some way in their own healing but if they aren’t doctors, it’s hard to know what to do.
Some physicians, feeling this frustration and also realizing the limitations of conventional medicine, have tried to find ways to assist patients in coping with cancer. Dr. Bernie Siegel, who wrote Love, Medicine and Miracles, could see that patients were not always being completely healed by the regular treatments offered. He started support groups for what he called “Exceptional Cancer Patients” and taught his cancer patients ways of assisting in their own recovery by not just complying with the doctors, but doing extraordinary things to help themselves.
I search for the truth, or perhaps it's just my truth, about how to live more fully, more integrated and at peace in this world.
