Thriving Through Cancer – Tools and Practices to Feel Better and Improve Your Quality of Life During Cancer and Beyond - An Integrative Method
When you’re diagnosed with cancer or facing a recurrence, it’s common to feel confused, scared, overwhelmed, powerless, and shocked. It’s hard to know what to do, and how to make decisions for the best care and quality of life.
You may feel disconnected from your body, mind, and spirit, which makes it all too easy to make decisions out of desperation rather than discernment. And if you’re a loved one, friend, fellow support group member, nurse, physician, or healer, how can you best support the patient?
The method discussed in this book gives you a simple, four-step tool you can use, no matter how you’re feeling, to assess your needs. You’ll learn how to choose personalized, synergistic practices to meet those needs on every level–physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual–and improve your quality of life.
As a result you can:
- Feel better even as you go through treatment
- Feel less overwhelmed
- Make sense of all the different information
- Learn how to navigate your care and advocate for yourself
- Manage your state so you feel empowered
- Live with a sense of meaning in your life
- Regain your sense of wonder
