When I tell people I’m a cancer coach, a common response is “Eh, WTF is that”?
So once in a while I create another video or post describing why folks might want to use a cancer coach. Every cancer patient should have one.
A few reasons:
Because some people take more time shopping for a new car than shopping for a cancer treatment.
Because there is a wide range of helpful tools for cancer patients…and many people have no idea where to find them.
Because the techniques we teach can be safely used for prevention.
Because, when you see hospital systems using the words integrative, or Complementary & Alternative Medicine (CAM), you should realize it’s not a checkbox. It’s not just yes we have this or no we don’t. It’s a sliding scale of services. You may notice in most hospital systems today, integrative care includes acupuncture, music or art therapy, yoga, and perhaps a few other supportive services. While this is definitely positive progress, most places are still only scratching the surface when it comes to CAM techniques that help eliminate cancer.
Because people are prescribed therapies (usually chemotherapy) which have been scientifically proven to NOT work for their type of cancer. Before I began cancer coaching, I spent a decade working as an earth sciences consultant. Some of our medical practices for cancer rely on junk science. Well branded, well marketed, junk science.
Because, in this sea of options, which can quickly become overwhelming, a coach helps simplify everything. I never tell a client what to do, but I do help them decide.
What do I mean by “sea of options”?
Let’s say you want to find an herbal supplement that works against cancer. There are thousands of herbals out there. How do you know which to choose? How do you decide which combination is best? How do you decide how much to take, and when? It takes a ton of research. As a newly diagnosed cancer patient, you may not have the luxury of time to learn all this on your own. A coach helps.
And that’s just supplements. What about nutritional approaches? Which is best for you?
What about alternative therapies, such as hyperbaric oxygen? What about lifestyle changes you can do at home, like juicing? It’s easy to drive yourself crazy. A coach helps you make a plan you’ll actually live with (and enjoy doing).
Because beating cancer doesn’t have to be difficult, or overwhelming, or anxiety-ridden, or painful. A coach helps you find relief…and even joy. We’re here to help you heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
And because a coach enables you to do all of this on your own terms. Confidence is key!
Why wouldn’t you want a cancer coach?
Take Care & God Bless!
