Stress Management

An 11 year study of stage 1-3 breast cancer patients showed that stress management provided:

  • Longer overall survival
  • Less risk of cancer recurrence
  • Improved quality-of-life

In addition, other studies have shown stress management results in:

  • Reduced risk of death from the original cancer
  • Better resilience
  • Better blood sugar regulation
  • Improved immune function

Finding the best stress management technique is highly individual and requires experimentation.
