My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Simonton Cancer Counseling Center Charitable Trust, Malibu, CA, USA
I am a physician and I have worked with people challenged by cancer for 40 years. The spirit-mind-body interconnection has always been fascinating to me as it relates to health. In 1984, I met Dr. Carl Simonton and soon after asked to join his workshops. My research and numerous scholarly books and studies have demonstrated how much our beliefs, attitudes and emotional states influence our physiology at the very cellular level. In the case of cancer, extended longevity with a much improved quality of life have been greatly improved by Dr. Simonton's unique counseling program. Having worked as a counselor at the Simonton Cancer Counseling Center between 1984 and 1996, I have witnessed literally miraculous transformations in all the patients who attended this program, way beyond what medicine alone can produce. This is a life transforming experience that has saved a lot of suffering and prolonged many lives. I strongly believe that every person affected by cancer should be given the opportunity to participate in a Simonton workshop as this will tremendously change their experience with cancer, improve their quality of life forever and, in most case, significantly prolong their life with full enjoyment of it. No other program that I have researched comes close to the Simonton program in helping the patients.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
All the patients that I have seen going through this program in my 12 years as a counselor experienced a major life enhancing transformation. Most of them lived many months or years beyond their medical prognosis with a much improved quality of life. The philosophy and the methods I learned and taught to cancer patients have significantly improved my own perspective on life and my quality of life as it pertains to my spirituality, my health, my relationships, my work, etc.
