Prior to the birth of her daughter, Jo was practising as a behavioural therapist, specialising in children with autism and complex learning and behavioural difficulties.
When her daughter became ill at just 19 months old, life would never quite be the same again. She was diagnosed with her first autoimmune disease which developed into multiple autoimmune diseases and required a four-year chemotherapy regime to suppress her immune system at just 3 years old.
Jo began digging deep into her daughter's condition, leaving no stone unturned. She pursued nutritional therapy, training in Functional Medicine with the Institute for Functional Medicine and completed training to become a fellow in integrative cancer therapy.
In this episode, we discuss how functional medicine can best support cancer patients and the uses of nutrition at any stage of cancer.
