Hope Is Found
It is reported that 50% of men, and 33% of women will experience some form of cancer in their life – which is quite a staggering statistic.
But terminal cancer isn’t the end.
From the fast-paced working person, to the post-chemo in-remission warrior wanting everything possible to stay in remission, the LIVE LONGER AND STRONGER Cancer Retreat is specially made for you.
Because all the work is done for you, this program is integral to those who want to get well, but feel too weak and tired, or are unsure how to get started.
Once the intake and assessment is complete and Inside Health has identified what additional tests and services are needed, we’re able to perform said tests. Our personalized approach allows us to recognize that every person comes with a unique set of causes that trigger them to feel unwell.
On day one, a thorough health assessment is performed and all recent labs collected. Additional labs/imaging are requested to complete the full picture of where the patient is at
Results are then reviewed and integrated into a comprehensive plan for the patient to follow through the entirety of the cancer retreat.
Inside Health believes that true healing is a journey.
When it comes to chronic diseases, especially cancer, we know that the onset of the illness does not happen overnight. Most cancers can take five to 10 years prior to a tumor even being felt. Surgery and chemo may help the tumor shrink or disappear, but it doesn’t change the environment in which cancer grew in the first place, or prevent abnormal cells from coming back.
A large part of the program involves treatments to get your lymphatic system (the system that transports lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells) moving. The goal is to build strength to the person with cancer, enabling them to become more resilient to anything that comes their way. By strengthening your immune system, you’re able to eliminate waste easier, leaving you feeling mechanically stronger.
