Immune-Boosting Wellness Retreats for Cancer Recovery

Immune-Boosting Wellness Retreats for Cancer Recovery


Recent research by The University of Rochester Medical Centre in the USA has revealed that cancer patients who practice yoga benefit from reduced levels of inflammation which is often associated with primary and secondary cancer development. The study shows that regular yoga practice could help to stop the spread of cancer and prevent it from returning. From India to Portugal, there are a number of well-established resorts combining wellness and medical therapies alongside yoga to help those recovering from cancer to enhance their body's natural defences following often-depleting cancer treatments.

Our top immune-boosting wellness retreats to visit following cancer recovery include:
