Being diagnosed with cancer can be frightening, confusing and overwhelming. Cancer patients and their families have to quickly make crucial decisions about medical options, treatments and medications. In this chaos, it is extremely important to nurture body, mind and spirit. In a Cancer Support Community, many individuals experience a sense of empowerment by taking responsibility for their own health and healing with renewed courage and hope.
Current research shows that healing is often enhanced by supplementing traditional medical practices with complementary therapies such as relaxation, Massage Therapy, Healing Touch and self-expression. Also, it has been proven that patients who participate in support groups often experience less pain and stress, and frequently increase their longevity and quality of life.
Dr. Susan M. Love, author of Dr. Susan Love’s Breast Book and other publications, states that “there is increasing evidence that these mind-body techniques can help the body cope with the side effects of medical treatment, and in some cases, may help prolong life and even cure cancer. Many cancer patients are now combining these techniques with their regular treatment, often with their doctors’ blessing, and sometimes with their doctors’ participation.”
