Cancer interrupts our experience of life in profound ways. Few experiences short of death are as challenging. We may find ourselves re-examining our entire sense of meaning and purpose. For some, living with cancer awakens a desire for new spiritual practices and perspectives; for others, it sparks a crisis of faith. There are many methods to support and accompany conventional cancer treatment, including plant-based medicines, bodywork, centering practices, talk therapies, support communities, and more.
Dr. Denise Millstine offers a practical approach to integrative medicine in cancer care at the 2019 Living with and Overcoming My Cancer symposium. This patient and caregiver symposium provides comprehensive, patient-friendly information on the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
