For those looking from the outside in, it is reasonable to assume that the toughest part of a cancer diagnosis is the treatments that a patient must go through. This may very well be the case. But perhaps an overlooked aspect of a cancer patient’s protocol is what to do when treatments are completed. More people are surviving cancer today and while the focus has justifiably been on the treatment aspect of disease there is an ever-growing need to attend to the surviving patient. Both on the emotional front and on a going forward basis we, as cancer survivors, must come to terms with life after treatment. And this can be a daunting task. Stacking the odds in our favour to prevent reoccurrence comes from addressing the very same pillars of Holistic Health we look to when striving for optimum health; our body, mind and soul. Our after cancer care protocol must focus on nutrients to strengthen our immune system and reduce inflammation as well as cultivating positive lifestyle and exercise habits to further encourage our good health. Perhaps if post care cancer protocols were incorporated routinely we would not only be seeing the trend of greater survival numbers but also we might just see a trend towards diminishing numbers of reoccurrence. Cancer found a breeding ground in us once. We cannot allow ourselves to perpetuate the same circumstances after fighting so hard. We must be diligent forever thus. There is no tapping out when it comes to beating cancer.
