Paul Kraus is the world’s oldest surviving mesothelioma patient, having lived with the disease for 20 years. In this video from Surviving Mesothelioma, he talks about the strength of the mind and how important it is in the fight against cancer.
Paul suggests patients use their minds to assist in the healing process by eliminating stress and anxiety and meditating. He feels that by freeing up the immune system of emotional stress, it allows it to focus its energy on healing the body.
Paul also says that meditation can be helpful for pain control and can help bring the body into a deeply relaxed state that will bring relief from pain.
