This FREE presentation will focus on the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) view of breast cancer. TCM is a system of natural medicine and wellness that has been evolving for the past 3000 or more years.

Topics will include:
– Breast cancer and breast health in Traditional Chinese Medicine: simple lifestyle practices, teas, and foods we can use
– During and after breast cancer treatment, what we can do to reduce the physical, emotional and spiritual discomforts from surgery, chemo, radiation and hormone therapy
– The key role of emotional stress in women’s health, and tips for reducing stress to help and promote cancer recovery and overall well-being
