Nutrition

Many foods found in our grocery stores and organic markets contain cancer-fighting properties, helping us to decrease the risk for disease. During cancer treatments, certain foods and ingredients such as sea salt, olive oil, lemon and Grade B Maple Syrup can help stimulate taste buds and remove the metallic taste, allowing you to stay nourished and thrive.

Professional Counseling

Women who are facing a breast cancer diagnosis and the treatments that follow often experience changes in their self-image and important relationships. It is not unusual to feel as if you are in a new and challenging reality. A professional counselor who is trained and experienced provides a safe, supportive, individual space for you to freely express feelings and brings an objective and trained approach to problems of emotional distress, sexual health, communicating with loved ones, and planning for a future.

Reiki

Reiki is a noninvasive practice that uses a light touch on – or holding hands just above – a person’s body to help promote balance and well-being. Studies have shown that Reiki induces relaxation, decreasing anxiety, stress and joint/muscle pain.

Yoga/Meditation

Women with cancer undergo extreme physical, mental, and emotional stress that can weaken the immune system. After yoga, patients have more energy, improved physical functioning, and quality of life. Meditation exercises also help relieve anxiety, provide nausea relief, and alleviate insomnia.
