  11. 11. Many cancer patients who've taken Isha Inner Engineering say that the program offered them a remarkable boost in emotional strength and a positive forward-looking perspective when they needed it the most*.<br />*Press Release Source: Isha Foundation On Thursday October 21, 2010, 10:38 am EDT<br />
  12. 12. "I have been through chemotherapy and radiation with all the side effects imaginable... I strongly feel that if I had not been doing the (Isha) practices, I would not have had this inner strength to deal with my situation the way I have," explained ChitraKarnani of Bloomfield, MI. “I still have some challenges left to be dealt with, but I remain mentally and emotionally strong and feel capable to cope with whatever comes my way."<br />
  13. 13. Margie Hudnell of Dayton, Ohio felt that the Inner Engineering program helped markedly reduce the pain of her surgery and boost her recovery from treatment, as well.<br />"My recovery post-surgery was quite remarkable. Aside from the pain medicine provided in the recovery room following surgery, I did not have the need for further medication and my incision healed at least twice as quickly as normal as per my surgeon. I felt totally healed and so energetic that my family had to remind me to take it easy.<br />"The traditional radiation and chemotherapies were discussed as was the Tamoxifen protocol, however I opted to not accept these recommendations pending my early diagnosis, clean margins from the lumpectomy, established yoga practice and inclusion of neem & turmeric (documented anti-cancer properties) into my vegetarian diet. The medical team supported my decisions, being aware that my yoga practices and dietary regimen supported my immune system and natural healing of the body and having witnessed my remarkable postsurgical recovery. I attribute my continued cancer-free state directly to my Isha practice and the dietary recommendations provided as part of the program designed by Sadhguru."<br />
  14. 14. According to Sadhguru, health benefits attained as a result of Inner Engineering are the by-product of overall balance achieved within the system. "In yoga, when we say 'health,' we don't look at the body or the mind; we only look at the energy," Sadhguru explains. "If your energy body is in proper balance and in full flow, your physical body and mental body will be in perfect<br />health."<br />
  15. 15. Once you have access to the source of creation within you, health and wellbeing will be natural, not something that you have to strive for -Sadhguru.<br />February 4 – World Cancer Day<br />Help Fight against Cancer<br />
