I needed to better understand how body, mind and spirit are connected and how they influence each other. I believe that the knowledge I am learning from this program will better allow me to know my own body and prevent the cancer I have fought, from returning. I have experienced how powerful the mind is and how strongly it influences all organs, cells and vessels in our body, both positively and negatively, but didn’t really understand why. I felt that if I understood the “why” the body reacts the way it does and to what, then I could prevent the cancer in myself, and in anyone who walks into my future practice. I have learned so much in just five months at CCACM. I fully believe that I can prevent cancer from ever returning through lifestyle changes, mindful behavior and by practicing what I am learning. I am excited to continue this journey.
