''Fear and trepidation often follow the diagnosis of cancer or any life-threatening disease,'' writes Helen Foster-Grimmett, reviewing the book The Answer to Cancer: Is Never Giving It a Place to Start, by Hari Sharma, M.D., Jim Meade, Ph.D., and Rama K. Mishra, G.A.M.S. ''Being able to reduce stress and apply lifestyle changes are essential for a speedy recovery.'' Ms. Foster-Grimmett's review is published in the October/November 2012 issue of Ageless Living.
She cites research published in Psychosomatic Medicine showing that some types of meditation reverse stress-related illness. ''In a published study, practitioners of the Transcendental Meditation program had lower sickness rates in all 17 categories of disease, including 87 percent less hospitalization for heart disease and 55 percent less for cancer.
''In another peer-reviewed journal called Integrative Cancer Therapies, a study showed that women with breast cancer reduced stress and improved their mental health and emotional well-being through Transcendental Meditation.''
