    Belle's Best Qs &As

     

    The questions and comments keep rolling in. It’s always good to get them, because they make clear what we haven’t been explaining well, or point out something we’ve articulated too flippantly, or highlight an important issue that was omitted in an answer… in other words, they set us straight and keep us on track. So thank you all for all of it.

    Here are a few recent Q and A’s. No scoldings in this batch, but some great issues raised… on cancer, panic attacks, psoriasis, and our new app…

  3. What Would You Recommend for a Cancer Patient to Overcome Stress, Relax, and Boost Immunity?

    What Would You Recommend for a Cancer Patient to Overcome Stress, Relax, and Boost Immunity?

    Dear Belleruth:

    I have been on the cancer journey for over 18 months now trying to do everything right and just got some terrible news. I have been crushed, confused, stressed. I decided to try an alternative medicine immunotherapy and my naturopath recommended your guided visualization. I need something that will help me overcome this stress, relax, and boost my immunity. Can you make a recommendation?

  4. Is There Any Cancer Imagery with Less Negative or Militarized Language?

    Is There Any Cancer Imagery with Less Negative or Militarized Language?

    Dear BR,

    I have been listening to a particular meditation/guided imagery CD for several months and wanted to try another. I found yours "Meditation to Help You Fight Cancer" - I have a breast cancer recurrence and ordered a copy. Unfortunately, I find I can't concentrate on it. My mind keeps wandering away; that doesn't happen with the other CD. I have tried to determine what is the problem; and the best I can come up with is the music is too upbeat to be relaxing for me, and there aren't enough pauses, or they aren't long enough. It's also true that the music is too loud and overpowers the voice. Part of the spoken message also speaks of "creating energy" when, in fact, what I want is to relax and be calm, not more energized.

  6. Can’t I Please Just Love My Cancer Cells to Death?

    Can’t I Please Just Love My Cancer Cells to Death?

    A certain percentage of people dealing with cancer don’t like or can’t relate to aggressive cellular imagery that envisions immune cells going to war against cancer cells and zapping them into oblivion, even though that’s more or less what happens inside the body on any given day. This woman, undergoing treatment for Stage 4 breast cancer, wants to know if there are gentle images she can use, and if so, what...

  7. Bobby’s Toolbox: Creating Meaning Out of Grievous Loss

    Bobby’s Toolbox: Creating Meaning Out of Grievous Loss

    We got this touching, inspiring note from Kelly, whose husband, died at a very young age -  33 - from a very difficult kind of cancer.   

    Many new widows would have needed to just stay put and grieve for two to three years – sometimes that’s exactly what is needed and the essence of sound self-care and deep wisdom, to just stay put and heal.  

    But Kelly had a “call to action” that was the right thing for her, and a great help to others. Check out how she created “Bobby’s Toolbox”, to honor the memory of her carpenter husband and provide help to others.  Here is her note:

    Researchers from Cyprus University of Technology explored the effect of Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR) and Guided Imagery (GI) in reducing anxiety levels among parents of children diagnosed with any type of malignancy receiving active treatment at a pediatric oncology Unit.

    In this randomized, non-blinded, controlled trial, 54 eligible parents were randomly assigned to either the intervention group (PMR and GI) (n = 29) or a control group (n = 25), where changes in anxiety levels (HAM-A) and mood (POMSb) were assessed.

  9. After a Bilateral Mastectomy, She’s More Creative than Ever

    After a Bilateral Mastectomy, She’s More Creative than Ever

    Margaret Dubay Mikus, a poet, photographer and all-round brainiac with a PhD in molecular genetics, discovered she carried a mutation in one of the “breast cancer genes” (BRCA2) when she had a new bout of breast cancer. After much deliberation, she decided to go for the option of bilateral mastectomy, plus removal of her ovaries and Fallopian tubes. Pretty extreme, you might think, but this is a recommended treatment with her medical history and this gene.

  10. Guided Imagery Saves the Day for a Chemo Patient Terrified of Vomiting

    Guided Imagery Saves the Day for a Chemo Patient Terrified of Vomiting

    I first got your guided imagery for Chemotherapy and for Treatment Related Fatigue from my nurses at Cancer Treatment Centers of America. These became like a staple for me. I listened to them the evening before I’d go in for chemo, and again the morning after, before I’d leave for home.

    I suffered from a lot of severe anxiety. This was not because of the cancer, but because I have a deep fear of vomiting, and the treatments made me very sick. I was in a constant state of terror about throwing up until the nurse gave me your recordings. They kept me calm and balanced. It was like a miracle. I began to believe I would get well and started to see past my immediate misery and toward a future where all of it was behind me. I got back my sense of hope, which saw me through the worst times.
