CANCER - Additional help for those receiving mainstream treatment for cancer

Call it fate or whatever but at the point where Steve was seriously ill with side effects from chemo we met a reflexologist and chatted about holistic medicine.  She mentioned The Penny Brohn Cancer Centre at Bristol (previously know as the Bristol Cancer Centre).

What is unique about this place is that they offer information about other therapies that should be used in conjunction with mainstream treatments such as chemo and radiology.

Initially you are invited on a Taste of Bristol Approach 1 day course with an option to stay over the night before.  This is to tell you the basics in order for you to decide what angles interest you most.  Meals are based on their proven anti cancer diet and accommodation is provided as 2 adjoining double en suite rooms per couple.

After doing this course you can return for day courses or residential ones to explore certain aspects further.

The main thing they do is to give you a chance to take control of your body rather than feeling like you have donated your body to medical science.

At the beginning there was a charge for each course but because they have had such good support they are now able to offer all facilities at no charge but appreciate donations.

Unfortunately this is the only centre of its type in Great Britain and probably Europe so it can involve quite a journey to get there but we felt it was worth while and would recommend it to others to help in the battle against cancer.
