The Philosophy of Cancer - Framing Your Cancer Diagnosis

In this week's episode, I discuss the philosophy of cancer and how to frame your cancer diagnosis with oncology naturopath, Dr. Dan Rubin.

Cancer is not always an easy diagnosis. It’s terrifying, and naturally, it puts a lot of stress on your body and your mental health.

Plus, treatment is not a walk in the park either. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy are both hard on the body and take a toll on it.

But what can you do, if that’s your only solution?

Well, today, we're offering you an alternative, softer way of dealing with cancer.

It doesn't have to be a death sentence, but you also don't have to poison your body to near death to get rid of it.

And this is exactly what we discuss with this week's guest, the amazing Dr. Dan Rubin!

Dr. Rubin is an oncology naturopath practicing out of Scottsdale, Arizona. And he is here to tell us more about how he works with cancer patients every day to make their journey easier and help their bodies heal.
