Recovery Resources




“It’s supposed to be a professional secret, but I’ll tell you anyway. We doctors do nothing.  We only help and encourage the doctor within.  We are at best when we give the doctor who resides within each patient a chance to go to work.”  Albert Schweitzer


Understand…cancer treatment is not the same as curing. Today there is no medical treatment that will cure cancer. Healing requires us to stop struggling with the thought that medical intervention will cure cancer. Make a commitment to participate in your recovery. Find resources to assist your body to recover.


Do something towards your recovery during treatment, before each surgery, between each doctor visit, between each test, etc. On your  journey towards recovery each second of each minute is precious. Make them count!


Find resources you can use whenever and wherever you find you need them most. I found the resources I used to be exceptionally helpful in the days leading up to a doctor’s appointment; when my mind would begin to wander towards thoughts of “what if…?” I used them before and after chemotherapy treatments. I also found a need for them while waiting for my test results.


Whether you choose acupuncture, diet & nutrition or exercise…art therapy, music therapy, aromatherapy, meditation or prayer – each of these activities encourages you to engage in your recovery. For these reasons I highly encourage you to find what resonates with you. You may join a meditation class or a yoga class. You may decide to take a class to learn about a vegan diet or how to prepare a raw food meal. Whatever works for you, do it! Engaging in these activities cannot hurt you. They can help you. They will help you.


I am a big supporter of alternative medicine, alternative therapies, complementary therapies, integrative therapies…however you choose to describe them. While none of these by themselves will cure cancer, they will encourage you while you engage in your recovery.


I am a long term cancer survivor. Medical professionals define my recovery as being an outlier – pronounced out-līər (They lay outside the norm).  I used healing stones during my treatment and continue to use stone energy today in the form of stone therapy I can wear…beautiful jewelry.


The medicinal properties of gemstones and crystals have been used for thousands of years. In the first Chinese medical book written 5000 years ago, detailed descriptions can be found of gemstones and their influence on the human body. Today health spas use the stones for enhancing the benefits of massage. I used stones during my chemotherapy treatment and while recovering from my surgeries. I found them to be beneficial throughout my recovery from cancer.


Healing stones have been used to treat illness for thousands of years. However, they are not intended to replace medical treatment nor seeking medical advice. They are meant to be used to compliment your medical treatment. Their effects can be felt either rapidly or may take longer. It depends upon you and how receptive your body is to their energy.
