Forming a Partnership with Your Medical TeamTo successfully fight breast cancer, the doctor and patient must form a special partnership. You’re the boss of your body, but this is a team effort and you must be the team captain. The best doctor for you is not necessarily the most famous or busiest one, or even the one who treated your friend. Choose a doctor who understands your unique physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Choose one who understands what your body can handle. All treatments should be tailored to you specifically. Your body wants to survive. It has its own healing power. And … it is 100 percent loyal to you alone!
Your healing team may have many different members and different expertise, but their goal should be the same: to help you regain your true identity, your life, and good health. Everyone on the team needs to agree to this goal. Procedures and modalities should support it. Above all, your own body, mind and spirit must all agree wholeheartedly to embark on this healing journey.
