In the conventional system of medicine we are taught to believe that cancer appears randomly. For unknown reasons cancer “attacks” us, and then we become cancer victims. We must engage in the “fight” against cancer. For the period of time we survive that fight we become privileged to call ourselves “cancer survivors.”
But why does cancer appear in the first place? In the lack of understanding or even a good theory, there is great mystery and mystique surrounding “why” any of us ever develop the tumors that become diagnosed as cancer.
We point fingers at many possible culprits: inherited tendencies from relatives, accumulation of toxins, poor diet and lifestyle. While all these and more certainly contribute to the development of cancer, the scientific truth is that only a small percentage of people who are diagnosed with cancer actually have connections to any of these “explanations.”
None of these explanations is so consistent or as common-sense as this: When stresses of life become “distress” and have no likelihood of a resolution in sight, part of our built-in, natural mechanism to cope with this distress is to begin to develop tumors.
A Woman’s Breasts Are for Nurturing Her Baby
When a right-handed woman is caring for her baby and is preparing to hold the baby for nursing it, in which arm does she hold her baby? She holds it in her left arm and will nurse from the left breast first. Her right hand, her dominant hand, is then available to comfort, care for and protect the baby while she is nursing it.
A left-handed woman is just the opposite. When a left-handed mother is preparing to nurse her baby, she holds in her right arm and will nurse from the right breast first. Now her dominate hand, her left hand is available to comfort and protect the baby.
Now Let’s Put These Two Concepts Together:
When a mother’s child is in some form of danger, this puts stress on the mother and her natural response is to assist, to protect or in some way to nurture her child. When this is not possible, the stress of the danger for the child becomes distress for the mother, and she begins to grow a tumor in her breast – the organ that represents her ability to nurture and protect her child.
For a right-handed woman who nurses from the left side first, the tumor will appear on the left breast. A left-handed woman is just the opposite. Her tumor will appear in her right breast.
In this frame of reference we can be confident that when we see a right handed woman with a left sided breast tumor, it is related somehow to a highly stressful situation, or “distress” in the mother-child relationship. The opposite holds true for left-handed women.
But what about a right-handed woman, with a right-sided tumor? Or, vice versa? That also happens, doesn’t it?
Yes, it does. Tumors in the breast represent a physiological response to some form of distress for the woman. When the tumor and the dominant handedness are on the same side, we know that the distress is not about the offspring or a mother-child relationship. Rather is it about a relationship that is as important to the woman as a child would be, but is something other than mother-child.
Common examples are distresses over relationships; partner/spouse, business, siblings, even distress over loved pets. Tumors appear first in these situations on the same side as the woman’s dominant hand. 
Principles of Integrated Medicine of Cancer Care
As a whole human being we all function as dynamic interactions of our physical, mental/emotional, energetic and spiritual aspects. Our emotions have a powerful and lasting effect on our health and our ability to recover from illness.
When someone is ill and seeking healing, all of these aspects need to be addressed with a focus on that person’s particular needs and with consideration for their family, community and culture. To achieve true and lasting healing, one must find harmony and balance within all aspects.
