How To Address Your Stressors

We hope you found your Holistic Health Questionnaire (HHQ) report useful and insightful. You are probably asking yourself about the actions you can take. Here are some tips and guidelines to get you started.

OK. So I have diagnosed my Stressors … what next?

Every individual is unique. What works for someone else, may not work for you. And vice versa. So you will have to try out a range of options and arrive at a Holistic regime that works for you. It is tricky to do this by yourself, because it is unfamiliar territory. Ideally, you should consult and be guided by expert practitioners in your area. This exploration itself can be very rewarding if you approach it with an open mind and heart.

Please note that the approaches outlined below

  • Are based on different healing frameworks
  • Have their own pros and cons
  • Do not, in any way, replace professional/ clinical/ medical diagnosis or treatments that you may need.
  • Provide you a wide palette of options to consider; they are not recommendations or prescriptions.

You may want to begin your journey by understanding the similarities and differences between Complementary/ Alternate and Holistic/ Integrated medicine on our website www.cancerawakens.com.
