Have you ever considered the way we live could be part and parcel of our medicine? I am sure you have. What about smoking - we know it is not good for our health, we even have science to back that statement up, but did we need that proof, we knew it already didn't we? So how much deeper does this inner knowing of what our body likes and doesn't like go, and could it be a relationship that actually supports us to take a more responsible body to our doctor thereby supporting doctors health as well as personal and community health budgets?

Katie Walls and Donna Gianniotis share with us the details of their one day retreat offering a fresh way to approach breast cancer care. Other presenters on the retreat are past interviewees on the show Jean Gamble and Michelle Crowe so the quality of this retreat is assured! In this episode we consider how we speak to and treat women with a diagnosis of breast cancer and if the sympathy they get is really what they want or if there is a different way to support them. Also, who do we ask for support? Have we considered who has capacity to support emotionally and physically - it may be a mixture of services, friends and family rather than all in one person.

Pain is debilitating, it affects 1 in 5 Australian adults and gets more prevalent as we get older... increasing to 1 in 3 adults over the age of 65. So this show is a must for anyone working with chronic pain who wants to consider how they can support themselves in their day to day. Physiotherapist Kate Greenaway and Psychotherapist Jean Gamble rock the airwaves with some very practical advice from their own experiences and from their years of practice working with clients experiencing chronic pain.
