“A bible for cancer patients who are really sick, and don’t know where to turn”
Sophie Sabbage, author, The Cancer Whisperer, Lifeshocks
The Cancer Revolution is the fruit of many years research and development, and brings together the overview of Patricia Peat, Founder of Cancer Options, with the specialised knowledge of 38 international experts in an eminently accessible and attractive format.
With Foreword from Patricia Peat
Shared Stories – Same Experiences; how that with language and experiences ill resonate with anyone dealing with cancer, or being part of the team of someone who is.
The experience of feeling you are thrown into a parallel world with a language and experiences you have never encountered before.
Everyone’s story is unique to them and the people who share their lives but the experiences and emotions that accompany being diagnosed with cancer and endeavoring to find an integrative path to empower themselves will be recognized by all.
Each of the contributors in this brilliant book has expert insight into their particular element and focus and how this can impact an individual’s ability to deal with cancer. I found it enthralling and empowering I know you will too. The power of shared experiences enables you to see you are not alone in your thinking and that the benefits are there for anybody, not matter what they choose to do.
“Most cookery books, however beautiful they look, really only offer a sprinkling of recipes I’ll actually get round to trying. With Food for Life, however, I want to cook them all. A most wonderful, colourful, nourishing cook book.”
Kirsten Chick, nutritional therapist, nutrition educator, author, speaker
The first question anyone with a diagnosis of cancer who is starting to look for ways to help themselves will ask is ‘What should I eat?’ For far too long, this question has been dismissed as trivial and irrelevant by cancer specialists, but now it’s long past time to be underestimating the power of good nutrition to underpin the recovery of good health.
Flourish Magazine is a joint venture between integrative cancer care charity Yes to Life and creative health charity Artlift, funded by National Lottery Awards for All, aiming to explore the benefits of an integrative and creative approach to living with cancer.
The magazine is created with the support of a steering group that includes people living with cancer and partners Macmillan, Macmillan Next Steps and Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust.
It features a range of creative responses, expert information and interviews in each themed edition, that offer support and represent the diversity of the cancer community.
Existential distress is defined as the psychological turmoil individuals may experience in the face of imminent death, which threaten individuals on a physical, personal, relational, spiritual, or religious level.
Morse creates in 1998 a more basic definition as “a deep concern over whether or not one is living a meaningful and fulfilling life”. People affected by serious illness usually experience suffering that goes further than the physical aspects of the body.
