Survive and Live Well on iHeartRadio Talk

In Uncategorized on November 21, 2013 at 5:48 pm

iheartThe Survive and Live Well Radio Show is now on iHeartRadio!

Choice, it gives us a feeling of empowerment—it allows us to regain the much needed control we somehow lost when we heard “You have cancer.” That’s why on Survive and Live Well we empower you with the information you need to make the best possible choices for your cancer, and to help you along the road to survival.  After all, if you don’t know your options, you don’t have any.

Join me weekly when I chat with the experts about treatment options and lifestyle choices that can help you not just treat cancer, but beat cancer, survive, thrive and live well.

Listen live, Tuesdays at 1pm (EST) on www.W4CS.com or via iTunes or iHeart Talk. Join the team at the Cancer Support Network, empowering you to defeat cancer.

 Upcoming Schedule: (Please visit my website for show details and guest information)

Tuesday November 26, 1pm EST– Donald Abrams MD– Integrative Oncology: Optimizing Cancer Care 

Tuesday December 3rd, 1pm EST– Stacia Hachem–The Estrogen Gene Test: What You Need to Know

Tuesday December 10th, 1pm EST–Dr Michael Schachter MD, CNS, FACAM–High Dose Vitamin D and K2 for Cancer: Discussion of the Standard of Care

Tuesday December 17th, 1pm EST– Jana Flaig–Practical Tips to Knocking Out Fear

With a diagnosis comes fear, but also the urgent need to make treatment decisions—some of which will affect quality and quantity of life. We must also address the root cause of our cancer and not just treat the presenting symptom.  We need to change the environment in which our cancer was permitted to grow and make it one less hospitable to the disease.

A coach can help to bridge the gap between what you will hear from your allopathic oncologist and what you need for survival; she can help you find the best path for your cancer. Empower yourself to build a survival team incorporating experts in the conventional, integrative and holistic world.

  1. Elyn,
    It v was nice to read this article. I tried sharing the same thoughts with my onco the other day. Ï feel that I wasn’t given clear options as soon as I should have. I was diagnosed, sent to the surgeon, after surgery went sent to onco and rad onco for consults. I dont think I was given the information I needed to make a treatment choice. I felt like I was told “do this”, rather than “here are some options” and sheets for the different treatments to go home for a week and discuss with your husband and decide. Then come back and we’ll talk. I it v through treatment (surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation). The emotional and financial chaos this created for me and my husband is soooooo difficult right now. I feel helpless not hopeful. I became a recluse . . . I am terrified of going out (though yes I do . . . but I hurry and come home). I am terrified of going to job interviews, I had one right after treatment and I went in my wig. How can you feel good and present your best self when you have very short hair and are not ready for rejection. I never even got a no thank you letter from this place! A big hospital at that. I HATE my “new normal” , the word “survivor”, and the 20 lbs that is the result of all of this on my butt! I don’t know how to go forward!!!!!!!

  2. Thank you Heather. Sadly, it is most typical to be issued orders instead of options. Please listen to a few of the replays, maybe they can bring you peace, hope and courage–so that you can move forward to a life of wellness and joy. Please feel free to email me. My best,
    Elyn

  3. I love your article. I had a 15 day radiation treatment and was asked to take tamoxifen. I’ve only been on it a short time and don’t like the feeling of it. I eat really healthy. I work with a nutritionist and naturopathy dr as.my omcologist is no help. She cant relate as she’s never been on tamoxifen. She keeps telling me I’m okay and doing good when to me, the side effects are very real. The state of Ca and American Cancer Soc. States that tamoxifen is a human carcinogen. Im upset the drs. and the pharmaceutical industry. push these down our throats anyway. It’s sad cause many don’t even talk about proper nutrition. So I am planning to stop it. Pretty much everything youre eating, I’m already eating. Cancer is about change and your body can truly heal. With my treatment for early bc…what’s done is done but I can help myself also by eating well and doing everything good for my body incl. exercise. And prayer is very powerful with healing. Thank you for sharing this with us. I am definitely inspired.

    • It is very sad Michelle. There are positive things we can do to manage estrogen–things that are good for the body, not harmful, including getting to the cause of the problem, not using a toxic bandaid. thanks for your comment.
