Message from Vijay

“What causes cancer” is the most common question people ask me. Cancer is a mysterious disease: deadly, widespread, and its specific causes are still unclear. We know that genetics (5%) and environmental/ lifestyle (95%) factors play a part. Sadly perhaps, we neglect the role of Stress & Immunity in preventing, causing and treating cancer. In mainstream medicine, many insights are emerging in the new field of Immuno-therapy. And in Holistic medicine, the mantra is Psycho-Neuro-Immunology (PNI), which is the scientific basis of many mind-body approaches. The most exciting aspect of the latter is that WE can do a lot to reduce our Stress and build our Immunity, while working alongside medical treatments. This requires good understanding and active participation. In this issue, we shine a light on the Stress-Immunity-Illness axis and various healing approaches you can consider. As always, we invite your feedback and support; please share widely in your network, so the maximum number of people can benefit. Warmly, Vijay.
