I’m an anomaly in the cancer world- I shouldn’t look like this and have stage 4 cancer. I truly believe that acupuncture had a huge role in how I’ve managed that both emotionally and physically. It is very apparent to my doctors and to myself that this is the defining difference.
Chemotherapy generally has declining results so it can work well in the first treatments but as you go it declines. For me, I’m staying at the same level of decrease and the biggest difference compared to other patients is the acupuncture.
I knew nothing about acupuncture! I had done a few sessions for my horses but nothing for myself. And you know with animals there’s no placebo affect but you see a difference immediately. I just never considered it for myself, I didn’t know a lot about it.
I’ve learned a tremendous amount about being centered within yourself and how healthy that is, it truly is a big part of wellness and health and how you move forward. You can’t just work and workout and expect thats all you need.
