I really enjoyed this video. It ties in with a book that I have in my library called "Traditional Chinese Medicine: A Woman's Guide to Healing From Breast Cancer" by Nan Lu, O.M.D., L.Ac. In the book, he talks a lot about stress and how it is a huge precursor to cancer. I remember years ago when I was in my early 40's and I had a benign breast tumor removed. It was very frightening going through the biopsy and then the surgery to remove it. Then being asked to have mammograms every 6 mos. I have a family history of breast cancer and other cancers. I worked a very stressful job and had been trying to get pregnant with a second child which was not mean't to be. Then I lost multiple jobs over a period of years and sadly, my spouse decided to call it quits on our marriage. I became so sick and stressed out that I got Bells Palsy which mimics a stroke. I was fortunate it was BP and the message spoke loud and clear that NOW was the time to start taking care of ME and not everyone else. Trying to fix everything and losing control...part of my old stress patterns. Now I struggle with having gained more weight then I've ever had in my life. I know that my inner health wisdom is speaking to me and there is more that I need to do. I ride bike to work, 6 days per week...54 miles/week and it is my favorite therapy. One day at a time. Thanks to RFR and all the folks I love here.
