  • The problem

    Cancer is not one single condition, it’s a highly diverse family of neoplastic diseases with a common factor: unregulated growth of tissues that go on to become malignant.

    These malignancies can result in lumps or diffusion throughout the body.

    There are many different types of cancer, and many different stages.

  • How it affects you

    If you, or somebody close to you has cancer, you’ll know only too well the emotional and physical toll it takes on everyday life.

    The sufferer may feel increasingly unwell.

    Cancer treatments can be gruelling, with extremely unpleasant side effects.

  • How can Beeja help?

    Because stress can aggravate cancer, Beeja meditation is an ideal tool for managing these effects and a wonderful support aid for people with the disease.

    Meditation for cancer patients stimulates the release of naturally produced opioids and cannabinoids, nature’s best weapon against pain. They are three times more potent than morphine and far less harmful than the external medications in use.

    Meditation also leads to a significant reduction of free radicals, which cause damage to tissues throughout the system, and are implicated as a factor in the onset of some cancers.

    If you are undergoing chemotherapy, Beeja meditation will certainly help support all your biological systems, which will have been subjected to significant trauma by the treatment. 

    It will help you cope with the emotional and physical exhaustion of undergoing treatment.

    Meditating brings an enormous sense of wellbeing to everyone who discovers it, and many people report that it gives them great comfort.

    A large study (comparing the medical care required for 2,000 meditators versus 600,000 non-meditators) has revealed that meditation using personalised mantras reduces the risk of both benign and malignant tumours in those over 40 by 55%.

    A great deal more research needs carrying out. We would be delighted to hear from any researchers or clinicians with experience in the field.

    “...after being diagnosed with breast cancer, Jess and Will’s guidance through the meditation technique and all of their generous support really helped me to get through the brutal treatment which poleaxed my body and to a certain extent my mind. I’d used the meditation as an emotional crutch to lift me through some pretty dark times – and it had worked. I didn’t feel so alone or afraid”
