Women, Cancer and Sexuality

Join Dr. Marianne Marchese for a wonderful discussion on woman diagnosed with cancer and the concerns of sex and sexuality that becomes an important part of everyday life.       

"The difference between sex and sexuality, sex is thought of as an activity, sexuality is about the way you feel in relation to  yourself, the link to intimacy, your need for closeness."



There are many reasons cancer may affect sexuality in women:

Body image, surgically losing parts of the body, thrust into menopause, vaginal dryness, pain with intercourse, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, stress, mouth sores, bladder infections, diarrhea, constipation, lack of sensation and low libido. 

Naturopathic medicine can offer support through cancer surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, combating the side effects which interfere with sex and sexuality. There are botanical medicines, amino acids, anti-oxidants, homeopathic remedies, nutritional support and bio-identical hormones. Bring a friend, this will be one lecture that may change your life...
