After the treatment rooms, all the medical appointments, and the strain of living with your cancer diagnosis, you’re overwhelmed, confused, and just really tired.
You’re told to eat healthy, but you don’t want to cook a meal, let alone look at a recipe. You’re confused about what you can and can’t eat. Can I have beer or a glass of wine? Will that make the tumor come back? Will it make it grow? Will it upset the chemo?
If we optimize the cellular environment with life-giving nutrients, wouldn’t we give our bodies a fighting chance?
It is instrumental to choose quality grains, seeds, colorful vegetables, fruit, proteins, fats and oils that provide anti-inflammatory properties to our cells, that do not impact insulin, that provide the building blocks for our blood; our immune system.
Your cancer is unique to your body and ultimately we want to nourish cells so that they can do their best to prevent angiogenesis (growth and spread of cancer cells).
This is where my science, holistic nutrition and cancer coaching studies meet and you’ll reap the benefits directly!
And it's why I've created the Thrive Nutrition Coaching Plan
You’re expected to be strong for your family, put a brave face on, have it all together, and understand the diagnosis and the steps.
What you need is someone outside your family unit and medical community who can look at your life objectively with compassion and sensitivity and help you forge a path.
I’ll meet you where you are at emotionally and we’ll build a food and nutrition plan around what you need and what you can handle. You’ll feel lighter after talking with me, feel heard and cared for.
You’ll feel empowered about your personal health and feel inspired to do hard things and make long term changes.
You’ll know what to eat and not eat to prevent cancer, to help manage your cancer and to rejuvenate you after treatment.
You’ll integrate simple ways to keep your stress levels down so you can recover and lower inflammation in your body.
You’ll have space to open up about your fears. What to eat to prevent cancer from coming back, whether it’s safe to go out and socialize.
You’ll thrive in your new routine doing things you didn’t think you could.
