The holistic approach
(from introductory booklet)

There is more understanding, more help, more hope for cancer patients today than ever before. Cancer is talked about, publicised; its conquerors and patients tell their stories on television and in the press. The old taboos have gone.

But public awareness of medical matters has put under the spotlight the rift between traditional methods and the increasingly popular holistic approach. This sees the person as a multi-dimensional being, not a machine; the protection of health as a matter, not only for the body, but also the mind and spirit. Each depends upon the other and sickness occurs when that inter- relationship goes wrong. This is not a new idea. It was urged by the father of medicine, Hippocrates, two and a half thousand years ago!

The holistic practitioner believes that traditional medicine can be greatly enhanced by the knowledge of complementary therapies. Acupuncture, homoeopathy, herbalism, reflexology and so on are not necessarily "alternative", they can be complementary to surgery, radio and chemotherapy. There is no need for patients to abandon their family doctor when they decide to utilise complementary therapies and natural medicines. The largest cancer hospitals use diet and meditation as an optional therapy for cancer patients. Medical experts of all persuasions should pool their knowledge and encourage the patient to join the team and assume responsibility for his/her own well-being.
