Mind-Body-Spirit Focus in Cancer Care

Mind-Body-Spirit News:

A leading oncologist recommends a mind-body-spirit approach to coping with cancer. “Cancer, like other life-threatening diseases, strikes all levels, and it’s important for patients to learn how to heal physically, psychologically and emotionally,” Dr. Robert Rutledge, a radiation oncologist at the Nova Scotia Cancer Centre in British Columbia, told Medical News Today.

Rutledge recommends a five-step method for empowering mind, body and spirit. The steps include the following: get the best out of the medical system; empower the body with simple effective health habits like exercise and nutrition; work with difficult emotions; nurture a spiritual life; and love yourself.
