I just viewed your TED talk via CNN.com. Currently, I’m studying to become a Holistic Health Coach. Your project is incredibly inspiring and such a cool idea. It is amazing the amount of interaction that you’ve received. Kuddos!
Without having a lot of experience with cancer or much studying of the field, I want to offer what I have been exposed to as this is the information that I would want if I were diagnosed with cancer.
Simply, it breaks down to nutrition – via food and via emotions. I study at The Institute of Integrative Nutrition where importance is placed just as much on what we call “Primary Foods” (relationships, career, physical activity, and spirituality as we do the foods we put into our mouths. As supplementary education, I recently listened to a week’s worth of 2-hour lectures on the topic of cancer. I found the information extremely enlightening and walked away not feeling scared of cancer anymore; and that is a huge step. Here is a link to that program. I would suggest listening to Marcus Freudenmann’s interview which is still up for free on the site. Of course, if you wanted to hear the others, the site sells dvds.
I wish you all the best in your health and all the best with this valuable creative project.
Viva human society!
