May 9, 2014
Hosted by Grace Gawler
Regina Cates is my special guest on this week’s Navigating the Cancer Maze. Her book, Lead With Your Heart is well suited to continue last week’s theme where we examined how to deal with setbacks associated with a recurrence of illness. As said before, it doesn’t have to be cancer; any crisis will do as a catalyst for change! Most of us are not shown how to deal with uninvited change. When life delivers it challenges, whether in the form of a life challenging illness, depression, divorce or grief, we can be left powerless and disarmed. Regina Cate’s; powerful book; provides a simple easy map of how to move to a consistent way of life making conscious actions from a centered, heart-driven state. New York Times best-selling author Marianne Williamson says: "This book is like a note from a close friend." Regina Cates inspires thousands of people every day via, Romancing Your Soul, on Facebook where she has almost 250,000 highly engaged followers. Learn more at gracegawlermedia.com

Navigating the Cancer Maze aims to share time-proven strategies in a “Let’s talk about it” atmosphere with the aim of making the journey through cancer more easeful through knowledge. The program is solutions focused for patients at all stages of cancer. Acknowledging and dealing with fear and trauma surrounding cancer is essential for any Health Restoration Plan as is pre-planning for any setbacks that are likely to be met along the way. Although we hear a lot about cancer in the news, for many patients cancer remains a personal, silent and deeply unexpressed grief. It is important to acknowledge the reality of a cancer diagnosis, while being authentic about process and keeping possibilities open. The best outcomes are experienced when the best of conventional medicine is paired with the best of complementary supported by an empowered patient.
