    What are the odds that we find a former Hematologist and medical Oncologist turned board certified medical Acupuncturist to cover Traditional Chinese Medicine? Slim! But as per usual, we're here to defy the odds!

    Acupuncture and TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) are integrative tools that we both use regularly.  While we can share our personal experiences, we too had many questions about the function and history of acupuncture. For episode 25 of Thriver Talks we went straight to the source to interview Dr Shi-Hong Loh at Dao-Sheng Acupuncture in Hoboken NJ.  Dr Loh uses both his experience and expertise to  fill in the gap between western and Chinese medicine.

    In this new episode, Dr Loh takes us on his journey and transformation from western oncologist, to Chinese medicine practitioner and answers all of our questions about the many benefits of acupuncture. His Chinese medicine wisdom is so unique coupled with his oncology background. He is also a really good story teller, which is why we are honored and excited to share him with you on today's episode.

    In this episode you will learn:

    - Dr Loh’s unique credentials and background merging both East and West.
    - Personal testimonies and stories about the benefits of acupuncture
    - What acupuncture is and how it serves as a tool to thrive.

    E22 - Tips to Thrive during COVID-19

    Every single person in the world right now is in some way affected by the feelings of uncertainty and fear around the current global pandemic, COVID19.

    In addition to an underlying cancer diagnosis, this sudden panic can be an extra layer of stress and fear on top of what most of us are already going through, especially due to our suppressed immune systems from treatment and pre-existing conditions. Right when we thought things couldn't get worse, we have become part of that small percentage of people that are actually "at risk". Many Thrivers in the community have reached out to us wondering how we are dealing and managing, so what better topic for Episode 22! We're aware that there's more than enough information out there on how to cope and prevent the Corona Virus, but we hope to bring you a fresh new positive perspective as well as comfort and inspiration to help you take control of what you can and let go of what you can't so that you can put this self-isolation time into healing use.

    In this episode you will learn:

    - What we are both doing and taking to boost our immunity
    - The activities we have incorporated into our day to day and what we do to stay grounded
    - How to manage the fear around this pandemic

    E21 - Thriving with Triple Negative Breast Cancer feat. Kelly Thomas

    E21 - Thriving with Triple Negative Breast Cancer feat. Kelly Thomas

    Breast cancer isn’t just breast cancer like we may have all once of thought prior to diagnosis. Now, thrust into the ‘world of cancer,’ we are aware of the different types of breast cancer, triple negative being the most rare. Because we are both ER+, we wanted to learn more about this diagnosis to educate ourselves and our community so we chose to interview our girl, Kelly Thomas.

    A triple negative breast cancer diagnosis packs a hard punch, but Kelly (@talkischeapxo) was determined not to stay down. Her transformation from a Stage 3C triple negative cancer diagnosis took some unexpected turns, yet turned her into the awe-inspiring Thriver she is today. She shows us that you can be both tough and lighthearted; both scared and brave; both the inspirer and the inspired. She is surely a thriver, through and through.

    In Episode 21, prepare to be encouraged and motivated by Kelly's contagious laugh, her honesty, and what can happen when you use what you have just where you are and surrender to the process.

    In this episode, you'll learn:

    -About triple negative breast cancer and what makes it different from other types of breast cancer

    -Kelly's remarkable story

    -Tools from Kelly on how she has stepped out of aggressive treatment and radically transformed herself

    -About Kelly’s commitment to the keto lifestyle and the tremendous results she’s experienced.

    -The incredible work she's currently doing with her "second chance at life"

Esmi W. ,

Love!!!!

I love this podcast! I don’t have breast cancer myself but as they say I’m co-thriver. My mom was diagnosed with HER2+ cancer and I have been having a hard time with it and anything I can do to help my mom is what I want to do and they have been so helpful and hopeful for my situation. Thank you guys so much and I can’t wait for the book!

roshambo33 ,

Love this!

I’ve researched and used most of the therapies you’ve used and as I’m toward the end of my second TNBC diagnosis I’ll be using these again in hopes of staying healthy. One thing I’ll be incorporating more of is the energy medicine you talked about and the soursop tea! Thank you for being honest and sharing your truth.
