of professionals, friends, church fellowship etc. Having people that YOU
TRUST is important for support. Cancer has its highs and lows. You will
need to continue making informed decisions on diet, exercise and supplements.
There is so much information out there that it can be very overwhelming.
That is why it is highly recommended that you be under the care of a naturopath
near home that supports the treatment you chose at CMN Hospital.
