Commonweal CancerChoices

CancerChoices was co-founded by Michael Lerner, author of Choices in Healing. CancerChoices is a guide to integrative cancer care, with balanced views of conventional, self, and complementary cancer care. Available evidence on complementary cancer therapies are curated, along with inspiring stories of healing from those who have walked this path.

CancerChoices provides extensive reviews of complementary therapies that may be used in addition to conventional therapies such as chemotherapy or surgery. The team rate the strength of the evidence supporting the use of a therapy for a medical benefit, such as improving treatment outcomes or managing side effects.

CancerChoices recommends “7 Healing Practices” as core for your cancer self-care. They are widely endorsed at major cancer centers as central to their integrative care programs.

Eating Well
Moving More
Sharing Love and Support
Exploring What Matters Now
Managing Stress
Creating a Healing Environment

Each of these are explained in great detail on the CancerChoices website.
