Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Breast Cancer
I love being a detective around breast cancer – finding the connections between the environment and health; diet and disease susceptibility; understanding how herbs and nutritional supplements act on our bodies and breast cancer cells; being made aware of the link between infection and cancer; or the benefits of exercise; and exploring the mind-body connection – this is what I do in my spare time. It’s only when we look at all of these interacting factors that we can really grasp the nature of breast cancer.
Once we know the causes, we can work on prevention, care, and cure. One of the tenets of Naturopathic Medicine is Tolle Causum – Treat the Cause. This section brings together much of the research that has broadened my understanding of breast cancer and helped inform the creation of the Healthy Breast Program.
