Most cancer patients want to get well, but what many of them mean by getting well is "I want to be the way I was before I got sick."
But life-style factors such as smoking, poor diet, exposure to radiation and poisons, lack of exercise, and negative thinking are factors that cause or promote cancer. Most patients who are successful in healing cancer make significant changes in their life-style. In fact, healing requires life-style changes. If we attack the tumor without improving the underlying system, the body will usually make more tumors.
For some patients a health crisis like cancer is the necessary stimulus that forces them to learn about themselves and discover how to live a healthier, happier life.
Lifestyle changes include:
- more physical activity
- healthier diet
- healthy emotional life
- health mental outlook
- healthy thoughts
- healthy environment and healthy habbits (no smoking, no drinking, going early to bed ...)
- more relaxation, meditation, time for yourself
- less stress
- less working
