Om Fighting The Beast

When diagnosed with life-threatening illness, our lives suddenly spiral out of control. It appears that our survival is in the hands of doctors and medical science. From a patient's perspective, fighting illness is very defensive; it seems to be all about enduring pain and discomfort whilst trying to minimise destructive emotions of fear, depression and despair. However, the placebo effect points the way to self-healing, and if we're fighting for our lives we should use every available resource; medical science still doesn't understand the full potential of the human mind and its capacity to heal. If we can truly believe in recovery then we not only negate destructive emotions, but also boost the immune system and potentially trigger our body's 'inner pharmacy' to attack the illness. But when our lives are out of control, and we naturally feel fear, how can we relax and be confident enough to believe? Not intended to replace any medical care, this trilogy of stories, The Fight, The Gatekeeper and The Game, describes one pathway that strives to allow us to truly believe; a pathway that shows us how to optimize our own resource - our mind - in the fight against life-threatening illness.
