I was invited to speak at a congress in Heidelberg for doctors in oncology and their patients: Patienten-Arzt-Kongress der Gesellschaft für Biologische Krebsabwehr – Selbstheilung im Fokus. The theme of my talk was Awareness and self-empowerment as important healing factors.
My overall impression of the congress was of a deeply supportive experience not only for patients but also for practitioners. The main message I heard from the doctors presenting was: “Your disease is speaking to you, so it’s important to listen. Whatever treatment you undergo, if your intuition tells you it’s not going to work, chances are it won’t. Listen to your heart.”
