We look at comprehensive, integrative modalities such as mind-body medicine, therapeutic nutrition, natural medicines, CBD oil and lifestyle changes to support cancer recovery.

Potentialy life saving information
I have not been content just waiting for the recurrance that seems to be expected by my oncologist. I knew there was something I could do, but, what? This podcast has a plethora of information I can apply today, and as I keep learning, in the future. So thrilled to have stumbled across this. I feel empowered.
I’m so thrilled to hear Deborah’s take on navigating the frustrating hurdles of coping with breast cancer recovery. I have recommended her as the go-to resource for any of my patients who have struggled with the aftermath of breast cancer (emotionally and physically) and I feel that both providers and women who are struggling with breast cancer will benefit greatly from listening to her show. Thank you Deborah!
