Join IONS Director of Research Helané Wahbeh, IONS Scientist Garret Yount, and IONS Fellow Joshua Weiss as we explore noetic perspectives of cancer. Western medicine has made great progress with cancer prevention and treatment. However, the prognosis for many cancers is still very poor. Without diminishing our current medical model’s success, how can we expand our view of health and healing to include holistic approaches and a noetic perspective? Dr. Garret Yount will discuss his previous research on cancer, including studies involving energy medicine practitioners. Dr. Joshua Weiss will share about the IONS Spontaneous Remission Bibliography project. Dr. Helané Wahbeh will share the results of a recently published paper on the emotional and psychological predictors of women with breast cancer.
