The world was heartbroken with the news that her breast cancer had returned and metastasized after 20 years. This leaves many women and doctors wondering whether you can actually be cured of cancer. As an acupuncturist and energy healer who has supported many cancer patients, it is my observation that once cancer or any disease, for that matter, has been afflicted, the areas of imbalance and constriction may still remain despite the removal or ridding the disease. This means energetically, it is important to balance and free the channels that led the cancer or disease to occur in the first place. In Chinese Medicine, the profound simple statement sums up the essence of disease “If there is free flow, there is no pain; If there is no free flow, there is pain.” To truly accomplish that, it is important to try to understand what caused this imbalance and how can we best keep these channels flowing freely again. Despite the fact that the manifestation is obviously physical, the root cause can result from one of the other three energy centers – emotional, mental or spiritual. Determining and addressing the origin of imbalance will create the optimal environment for the body to remain healthy.
