Health Habits Can Diminish the Cancer Bugaboo

Thursday, March 26, 2009

When someone who takes obvious health risks is diagnosed with a serious illness, people who know that person aren’t usually surprised. But even people who think they are doing all the right things to be healthy can turn up with a frightening diagnosis.

That was the case for Beth Dotson Brown, an organic gardener, healthy eater and racquetball player. In June 2005, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. After the diagnosis, people repeatedly said to her, “I never thought this could happen to you.”

Beth is now sharing what she learned while consulting with a holistic nurse and other complementary care providers during her cancer treatment and recovery. She deepened her knowledge of how to truly take care of herself from a holistic perspective and believes that approach, which is always evolving, diminishes her chances of dealing with Cancer again.

Join Beth and Erica as they talk about the roles of paying attention to your body’s signals, food, body care products, spirituality and more. 7:30pm Eastern time tonite!
