Once you got your cancer diagnosis, what went through your mind?
Did you immediately feel as if there was little or no hope moving forward? Did you think that you got the diagnosis early enough that you had a good chance to beat the illness?
Keep in mind everyone reacts in a different manner when discovering they have a form of cancer.
With that being the case, doing all you can to defeat cancer should be your priority moving forward.
So, will you do all you can to win the battle?
Fighting Cancer from Day One
In efforts to fight cancer, have you looked at factors like diet, exercise, and removing stress?
Unfortunately, too many patients get misinformation from medical pros and even the media. As a result, they may think chemo and radiation are the only ways to go about tackling this terrible illness.
As it turns out, there are other approaches that one should give some consideration to.
Have you thought about doing all you can to improve your diet?
Yes, your diet can play a major role in how your body fights cancer.
In looking at a cancer diet, you want to focus in on eating as healthy as possible. Remember, it may have been your diet up to now that contributed to you getting cancer in the first place.
That said you should hone in on eating more fruits and vegetables to start. Also do your best to cut out fatty foods and fast-food meals for that matter. Last, you are oftentimes better off if you steer clear of alcohol and processed meat.
In the event you are a smoker, don’t think there is no reason at this point to give it up. Each day that your lungs and the rest of your body are not exposed to cancerous toxins is a good thing.
Does Exercise Play a Role in Your Life?
Also take time to look at the role exercise plays in your life.
In the event you have not been that athletic, do your best to change this moving forward.
Now, this does not mean you have to become a regular at the gym or run marathons.
What it does entail is doing all you can to exercise. This means walking, swimming, and even thinking about doing yoga several times a week.
Along with the physical benefits of exercise, there are mental ones to look at too.
Daily exercise can help you forget about the things causing stress in your life. Even if only for a half-hour of time or longer, that is time your mind can be carefree and relaxed.
Finally, have you been big on meditation up to now?
By meditating, you ease your mind.
Even though you are dealing with an illness that can kill, one can beat cancer. In using meditation as one form of treatment, you are able to take your mind away from what is ailing you.
If you are in a battle with cancer, do all you can do to win the battle and in the end the war.
