Guided Imagery Helped Her with Cancer Surgery & Menopause

We got this gracious note a couple years ago when we were searching for “People We’ve Helped” stories for our web page. I think you'll enjoy reading it!

Hello,

Ten years ago I had breast cancer. I was treated at the Moffitt Cancer Centre in Tampa, Florida, as I was living in the Bahamas at the time (I am British).

When I met with the anaesthetist for my pre-op assessment, he offered me your guided imagery CD, Successful Surgery and suggested I upload it to my iPod and listen during surgery, which I did. 

I came round straight after the op feeling calm and well.

I loved the disc and after my treatment was determined not to get a return of cancer, so purchased your Fight Cancer and General Wellness CDs and listened daily.

Over the last 10 years, I have entered the menopause with a vengeance and subsequently purchased the Relieve Stress, Fight Depression and Mastering Menopause recordings (sorry if I've got the names slightly wrong here!). 

I've just completed a Mindfulness Course and recommended these recordings to everyone in the course. Belleruth’s soothing voice and the wonderful affirmations (such as rephrasing my hot flushes as a cleansing heat taking me to a new place) have seen me through the best and worst of times over the last decade, and I know she will be with me until I leave this world and move on to the next.
