When someone is told by their doctor that they have cancer, they may begin debilitating treatments that include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation or hormone intervention. Rarely are they instructed about eating fewer processed foods or adding plant-based foods to support their treatment options.
As a Certified Nutrition Specialist ® practitioner, I guide patients back to health by being as committed to their nutritional intake as they are with their treatment options; whether that treatment is for cancer, heart disease, diabetes or some other chronic illness. I do this because it affects overall survival and quality of life. I am living proof.
Diagnosed in 1998 with an aggressive breast cancer that included all the standard therapies, I pursued an understanding of macrobiotic and plant-based foods to bolster my weakened immune system to battle this disease. Living well for nearly twenty years, I was diagnosed with metastatic cancer in 2016, and dietary intervention is again pushing cancer into remission. The journey continues and has amazing hope with nutritional adjunct therapies.
I earned a Master of Science degree in Nutrition at Maryland University of Integrative Health, which included extensive clinical nutrition, integrative health strategies and research of the benefits of plant-based foods that improve outcomes of chronic and life-threatening diseases. At MUIH, I continue as a teaching assistant in the Nutrition Department for online courses.
As a Certified Nutrition Specialist ® practitioner in private practice, I support and educate patients, caregivers, and physicians in the transformative effects that plant-based nutrition provides the human body.
