Life Lover. Growth Catalyst. Cancer Thriver.

I have an insatiable lust for life! I am obsessed with world travel, healthy living, big belly laughs, hugging trees, experiencing adventures of all kinds, growing businesses, delighting in my teenagers, and pushing the envelope to walk courageously into the unknown.

 

 

How can I empower you?

Let's Talk
the benefits

What the research says

 


Self-Advocate

Patients who feel empowered to co-create their treatment plans have enormous benefits including: higher quality of life, reduced anxiety, better treatment compliance, better decision making, and improved health outcomes (Vahdat et al, 2014).

Nature

Spending time in nature reduces blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and the production of stress hormones. (Bowler et al, 2010)

Mood

Positive moods have been shown to enhance immune system response and increase an individual’s capacity to engage in health-promoting behaviors (Salovey et al, 2000).

Stress Relief

Meditating for just 30 minutes a day increases the brain’s gray matter density, which can reduce sensitivity to pain, enhance the immune system, improve emotional regulation, and relieve stress (B.K. Hoelzel et al, 2011).

Support

Breast cancer patients who were able to increase their social support during their cancer journeys reduced the risk of dying by an incredible 70% (A. F. Chou et al, 2012).

Forgiveness

Modern science shows the health benefits of forgiveness of self and others are numerous: better immune function, longer lifespan, lowered blood pressure, improved cardiovascular health, and fewer feelings of anger or hurt (Toussaint, 2015).

Take the Diagnosis, but don’t buy the Prognosis

Empowered patients who become their own advocate not only live longer, but also fare much better than those who simply follow their doctor’s orders.
