By learning to manage your cortisol stress hormone levels and by putting the mental/emotional stress in your life in the proper perspective.

This is critical in any alternative cancer treatment.

It is a fact that high stress is a major contributing factor to cancer and many other diseases. The question is how does stress cause cancer?
