Living with the prospect of cancer (or similar disease) reoccurrence

Being diagnosed with cancer is overwhelming - immediately you are in fight or flight mode, ping-ponging from appointments, and into surgery, chemo, radiotherapy and hard-core meds. I was diagnosed with breast cancer (at age 44) in May and as a long-time listener of yours, I went back and used a lot of tools from previous podcasts, in particular on breathing, meditation and fasting, and found these really helpful. My question is, what are the key things I can do as someone who will have to live with the prospect of cancer reoccurrence for the rest of my life, to try and control what I can control and give myself the best chance of preventing reoccurrence. What interventions that I can make might have the most impact? Dietary? Meditation? Stress management? Controlling inflammation? Supplements? Better early detection? I love your show and the diversity of topics you cover, thank you Rangan!

Heart rate variability

I would be interested to hear your views and insights regarding heart rate variability and its monitoring; the sympathetic/parasympathetic balance and its (HRV) effects on- or use as a tool to combat stress and anxiety.

GP engagement

How do I get my GP to work with me on reducing medication please? I'd like to try using food instead of statins and apple cider vinegar instead of omeprazole. I don't want to go behind his back. I want us to work together without him dismissing me as someone who won't follow what he says. Thank you.

Restless Legs

I have had RLS since being small, my mother also had it. It affects me pretty much everyday as it prevents me from relaxing properly in the evenings, and frequently disturbs my sleep as the only way to ease the 'pain' is to get up and walk around. It affects shows, the cinema, meditation, travel, anywhere where I am in a confined space. Exercise and being over tired can make things worse. I'm trying Magnesium supplements, but not convinced. Any ideas and how do others cope? Sometimes I do get RLS in my arms!

Osteoarthritis

I would appreciate a discussion on how to cure ostheoaerhritis in knees and hips. Maybe from an orthopedic specialist who is openminded and has a functional medicine approach. I find little more than how to decrease pain and only anecdotes about getting cured or stop the degeneration.
