Your Cancer Journey
Your Cancer Journey
Every person is unique and every circumstance is particular
Regardless of where you are in your cancer healing journey, we will work with you to create the healthiest possible lifestyle and teach you habits that promote physical, emotional, and spiritual health.
We believe in consistent small steps that lead you to a sustainable and long term healthy lifestyle. That’s why it is so important to have an individualized approach.
Here we look at Cancer Prevention, Just Diagnosed, During Treatment, After Treatment, Life Beyond Cancer, and Support for Caregivers.
More than 90% of all cancers are a result of lifestyle and environment. Working everyday with cancer patients has motivated us to also work on cancer prevention. You don’t need to wait until you get sick to start taking care of your health.
Our Cancer Coaching program will guide you step by step on how to create a lifestyle that minimizes your risk of developing cancer.
Aggravating conditions such as being overweight or diabetic, having high blood pressure or an unhealthy gut have been seen as possible precursors to developing cancer. Our programs will address your current health conditions and put you in a better position to promote healing.
Hearing the words “You have cancer” triggers a cascade of emotions. Often you feel shocked and confused, as well as completely overwhelmed with the diagnosis, the amount of information you have to process, and the many decisions to take in terms of treatment plan.
We will guide you through your test results and advise you on questions to ask your medical team.
It is not uncommon to seek a second opinion and we can help you though our international network. Having a better understanding of your condition and treatment options will make you feel more confident.
Besides, getting organized really makes a difference; it gives you back a sense of control.
A positive and constructive mindset is crucial, but sometimes easier said than done. We will support you in difficult moments while teaching you techniques to cope with stress, fear, anger, and anxiety.
We will help you to get ready to face the challenges ahead. Our goal is to put your body and mind in the best position to promote healing.
Whatever treatment you decide to undergo, we will support you along your journey.
We know how important it is to feel understood and supported. Numerous studies have demonstrated that cancer patients who feel supported recover better, have less side effects, and have a better chance of avoiding recurrence of cancer.
More than ever your body will need additional nutritional support; we will provide guidelines on nutrient dense food, together with delicious recipes for you to create at home as well as lifestyle advice to maintain strength and energy levels. During treatment, food can sometimes be a real challenge, as treatments interfere with your appetite, taste, and digestion. We will guide you on how to eat a nutrient dense diet to support healing, reduce inflammation, support healthy digestion, and enhance natural detoxification.
Every treatment has side effects and every person reacts differently. Chances are that it will impact your sleep, your food intake, your energy levels, your motivation, fortunately there is a lot we can do on a holistic level to address side effects of treatments.
We all have different personalities, some of us benefit from exchanging with others who have gone through a similar experience. You can join our closed and confidential online groups that can give you a sense of comfort and the reassurance of not being alone on your journey.
We encourage you to have constructive communication with your doctor, to feel encouraged to talk about your side effects, and ask the right questions. Our aim is also to provide comprehensive support and work hand in hand with your medical team.
You have just received the news that your cancer is in remission and you are absolutely sure that you do not want to go through anything like that again, but what do you do?
The next step for you is to focus on restoring your health, monitoring and maintaining this result, and preventing the cancer from coming back. It is quite likely that during your treatment your immune system would have been compromised and become weaker, and the function of certain organs have been compromised.
We work with you to build a plan that is focusing on eliminating the toxins, reducing the inflammation, and restoring the immune system. Individualised plans will consider current side effects of treatment, addressing fatigue and building better sleep habits, regain physical strength and flexibility, rebuilding health gut and digestion, and regaining your self confidence.
Life Beyond Cancer
Even though you may have been predisposed to a genetic condition that can cause cancer, it is more often our lifestyles that trigger these genetic mutations and ultimately cancer. Being aware of what caused the cancer and what your life will need to be to reduce the chance of recurrence is now your priority.
If you have co-occurring, aggravating conditions such as obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, chronic inflammation or you are a heavy smoker or drinker, this is the time to address and change your lifestyle.
Cancer is a preventable disease in many cases. Our Cancer Coaching program will guide you step by step on how to create a lifestyle that minimizes your risk of cancer recurrence.
We will guide you in maintaining long term healthy habits by adapting your goals and lifestyle according to your progress and energy levels.
We will give you back a sense of control over your health by providing you with active steps to minimize risk of recurrence. You can achieve peace of mind and look forward to live a full life.
We will be here and continue to be a safe space where you can talk about your doubts or fears. We will remind you about your health screening and check-ups, and guide you with the questions to ask doctors.
We believe long term habit changes are a team effort with you contributing to your own success. We empower you with the knowledge and support to create a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.
