Holistic is defined as "treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental and social factors, rather than just the physical symptoms of a disease".
As a Holistic Nutrition Counselor I will work with you to look at your current eating patterns and any health issues you may be experiencing and try to find the best way to make you the strongest, healthiest version of yourself.
You may find that one session is all you need to pinpoint any areas that you need to work on. There is no assumption of ongoing sessions, it is based only on your needs.
I was first diagnosed with Cancer in 2011 and have been a Stage IV cancer patient since 2014. After my original diagnoses I spent many years doing self study on how nutrition and exercise help in the treatment of cancer.
I needed a way to repay all of the services that helped me along the way so I started studying and received my certification in Holistic Nutrition as well as a certificate in Mindfulness Coaching so that I could help other Cancer patients who wanted to build their immune systems and be the strongest they could be, whether they were currently in treatment or 20 years out from NED and wanted to stay that way.
This is not a replacement for standard medical treatment, but a lifestyle modification to help your body fight.
There is never a fee for any person who has/had a cancer diagnosis.
