Coming home with a diagnosis of cancer is a traumatic event that often generates feelings of helplessness and bewilderment. Conventional medicine approaches the treatment with a focus on surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or anti-cancer medication. This leaves you feeling powerless to do anything else but to take these treatments with stride. However, there are ways of putting yourself in the driver seat and becoming an active participant on the road to cure. An orthomolecular cancer treatment can be supportive in this case.
