Therefore when John (name changed) was informed by his doctor that he has a prostate cancer he was broken down. He has just passed his 45th birthday. His two young children were still at high school. Although his wife was a qualified teacher, John had such a good income that she had decided to stay at home and raise their children with love and care, So he did not have much saving.
He knew that the treatment of cancer can drain away all of his meager saving and longer he lived poorer he will become. The thought of having to leave his dear wife and children in a hopeless financial situation was unbearable. He was so much busy in his work that he had hardly any chance to look around and know what alternative methods of treatment were developing in the world. Now he had to find time and find out all the alternative methods of treatment. His doctor will of course tell him what the medical science can do for him. He had to find out himself what other methods outside that field were available.
He studied in depth the solutions being propagated by Deepak Chopra – Meditation, Ramdev Swami – Pranayam and Yoga, Shree Goenka – Vipassana(a form of meditation), Jose Silva for Positive Thinking and Maharishi Rajnish – Transcendental Meditation. He noted that there is truth in what these people are saying. Besides, he had nothing to lose in practicing what they were preaching as it was not going to cost him anything to meditate and do Pranayam and yoga at home. He attended their seminars whenever he got the opportunity and learnt correct techniques. He studied all the available literature about their methods (mostly available on the internet) and prepared himself to cure cancer.

His performance in his job was improving and his colleagues found getting more attractive and friendly. The pain in his body was also slowly reducing.

He was expecting the tumor in the prostate to be bigger and cancer spreading other parts of the body. Instead the tumor had become smaller and some of the cancer cells had died and were inactive.

But he continued his medicine, which was meditation and yoga and continued to make progress in life. He found that it was a good tonic for a healthy life.
