Presentation Description:
Dis-ease tells a story, not just of the cells (biology) but of the self (biography).  We need to listen to, and integrate, both stories in our clinical care.
Stress is a contributing factor in illness. The latest research is confirming and expanding on this idea in ways that can, and should, revolutionize our treatment of chronic disease.
Research into the impact of childhood trauma on adult disease reveals a deeper relationship, than previously recognized, between adverse childhood events, stress and trauma and chronic diseases in adulthood.  Biography can and does influence our biology. There is a growing realization of the critical importance of effectively and skillfully integrating this knowledge into the practice of medicine.
In this presentation, I will explain the theories and current research regarding how biography becomes biology, describe a practical process for “connecting the cell and the self” in clinical practice and apply those concepts to the treatment of people with cancer.

Goals and Objectives
  • Gain a working knowledge of the latest research into the impact of stress (and our response to it) in health and disease
  • Gain a working knowledge of the theory, latest research and available resources on the impact of childhood trauma in adult disease, including an understanding of what qualifies as “trauma”
  • Understand how working with stress and trauma fits into the spectrum of an Integrative, whole-person approach to Naturopathic Oncology
  • Learn practical therapeutic techniques for incorporating the treatment of stress and childhood trauma, and its impact, in cancer treatment
  • Define and explore “narrative medicine” as a modality for healing the patient’s biography as a way to support curing their biology in Naturopathic Oncology
  • Clarify the difference between acknowledging the role of biography in the disease process and blaming the patient for creating their illness. I will clearly explain how and why acknowledging and exploring a patient’s biography as part of an integrative approach to cancer care is an empowering and liberating experience that enhances treatment effectiveness
