Beyond Conventional Cancer Therapies is a new website that literally puts at your fingertips the latest and most accurate information about integrative cancer care that combines the best of conventional and complementary treatments. BCCT has just launched its dedicated page on breast cancer, accessible here.

Full disclosure: I’m blogging for BCCT after getting my second cancer earlier this year (the first was 19 years ago!). My blog is Cancer, Again and I’m talking about how I’m using integrative approaches to heal from a DMX, reduce the risk of recurrence and build a reservoir of wellness. I hope you join me on my journey. Here’s a link to my most recent post. https://bcct.ngo/news-blog-and-resources/blog/building-my-new-normal-with-the-7-healing-practices

Thanks for sharing this site!

I've bookmarked a few links there, to talk over with my MO and my Naturopath. Of special interest is their info on Turkey Tail Mushroom. https://bcct.ngo/search-therapies/search-therapy-summaries/turkey-tail-mushroom I'd read about it in other places before, but had no idea there were studies on it's effectiveness. I'll be back to peruse more when I can later.

Thanks again.
