Holistic Approach to Cancer
September 16, 2013

If you’re wondering why I’m writing on cancer in quick succession, it’s because the seminar on cancer that I attended recently was excellent and I want to share with you a couple of useful things.

Apart from the usual medical approach to cancer treatment, it was amazing to learn about holistic therapies that promote healing of cancer.  Hypnotherapy impressed me.  Vidya Ramaswamy, a psychologist, and her team use hypnotherapy to promote cancer healing.  According to this form of treatment, emotions in the sub-conscious mind can sometimes deter the healing process.  Dealing with these emotions through hypnosis helps in cancer care much better.

Nilima and Vijay Bhat, organisers of this seminar, have a website   This website is a guide to various approaches to cancer.  This couple also coaches people on how to deal with cancer, and so on.

  1. Yes, I too attended and benefited very much,being a Cancer survivor who has undergone Laryngectomy. A major surgery at the end of many not so major surgeries which has completely changed my life and way of living.

    All kinds of Holistic therapies were covered by experts and it was so revealing to listen.It is another matter of-course whether a Cancer patient can wholly trust these Holistic systems abandoning the trodden track of Chemo/Radiation/Surgery.Would the advocates of these Holistics systems totally rely on these abandoning the established Allopathic route if unfortunately they themselves are struck by Cancer is what I often wonder!

    There was a lady, a caregiver to her husband who died of brain tumour. Even her narrative was so spellbinding and heart rending.

    That was a great show, indeed.
