This synopsis of Kelly Turner’s book, Radical Remission, highlights the importance of balancing our physical and mental health with a daily spiritual practice to overcome illness. Daily meditation and taking time to find our joy and inspiration in life is just as important as nutrition in our ability to heal. Letting go of old, toxic emotions and beliefs are a requirement for healing.
The book summarizes the author’s research around the world on the methods used by cancer survivors to heal themselves. The findings revealed 9 common factors that all of the interviewees shared in order to heal their disease. These 9 key factors are not meant to be in any order of importance, as each person’s journey was unique to them.
It is my belief that we can all improve our health and well-being by incorporating these 9 actions into our daily lives.
These healthy lifestyle changes may also prevent future illness.
1) Radically change your diet
2) Take control of your health
3) Follow your intuition
4) Use herbs and supplements
5) Release suppressed emotions
6) Increase positive emotions (they heal the body)
7) Embrace social support
8) Deepen your spiritual connection (to heal the body)
9) Have strong reasons for living
