THE WOODLANDS, TX – As Breast Cancer Awareness Month continues, one local health-based business is pointing out that, for some people suffering through cancer, more holistic options are available to provide some relief.

“Mushrooms don’t just fight back against breast cancer; they provide support and reduce other cancers,” said Blissful Waters Float Center’s owner Melody Fraser. “They are highly effective in supporting you during chemotherapy and other Western treatments, with some even reducing the size of cancer tumors.”

Blissful Waters has a complete stock of holistic and alternative medicines and items, including mushroom supplements. Fraser points out several varieties that can help cancer patients:

Chaga mushrooms treat cancers of all types, including Hodgkin’s Disease. Chaga helps prevent and treat cancers by increasing antioxidant activity, slowing down the growth of cancerous tissue by killing off existing cancerous cells, and reducing tumors, through boosting your immune system, this all helps eliminate cancer from the body.

Lion’s Mane has had good results in treating lung cancer, stomach cancer, esophageal cancer, liver cancer, leukemia, cervical cancer, stomach cancer, skin cancer, colon cancer, and breast cancer. It stimulates the immune system and helps kill off cancer cells, controls tumor growth, and prevents cancers from spreading to other parts of the body.

Reishi mushrooms are used traditionally to prolong life in cancer patients and are currently used with modern cancer treatments to improve strength and stamina in patients. Reishi enhances immune system function and allows the body to better fight cancer. It has demonstrated significant anti-tumor activity. These mushrooms are also effective at alleviating nausea and kidney damage caused by cancer drugs and in reversing chemotherapy resistance. Reishi can be used in tandem with traditional chemotherapy and radiation treatments in the same manner as Turkey Tail mushrooms are used.

(Additionally, Reishi mushrooms can also be beneficial for cancer patients’ friends and families: they have been shown to alleviate depression and anxiety, and promote well-being.)

Turkey Tail mushrooms are often used by cancer patients to kill cancer cells and tumors and to support the immune system while undergoing chemotherapy. It strengthens the immune system while undergoing chemotherapy, helping your body fight disease, and protecting the body from additional infections. Its anti-cancer properties help prevent the spread of cancer and have been shown to augment the effects of Western cancer therapies. These mushrooms are very effective for treating many types of cancers, and greatly reducing relapse rates.

In honor of this month, Blissful Waters is also offering a Breast Cancer Support Package. This package is great for a loved one caring for someone with cancer or a cancer warrior themselves. The float helps calm and heal the body, as well as releases stress, and the IR sauna allows a gentle detox; afterwards, you can finish your services with a complimentary session on the O2 bar. For the month of October, ten percent of each purchase for the Breast Cancer Support Package will go to the Canopy Cancer Survivorship Center at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center.

“Canopy is here in The Woodlands, and they support those with cancer throughout their healing journey,” said Fraser. “We try to support all stages of the cancer fight; however, please be mindful if going through radiation or chemo to ask your doctor if float therapy is safe for you and others. Immunotherapy, radiation and some chemo may require you to wait until treatment is over.”

Blissful Waters Float Center is located at 2408 Timberloch Pl suite D4, in The Woodlands.
