BC-048 How a 25 yr Oncology Nurse and Holistic Cancer Coach Uses Complimentary Support to Optimize OutcomesMarch 26, 2019 | Author: BeatCancer.Org
Ruth Phillips started her 25+ year career in hospice, helping people and their families to find peace at end of life. She then transitioned to oncology nursing. During her career she developed a desire to educate and help people prevent cancer. She decided to become a Certified Holistic Cancer Coach through Beat Cancer so she could help people in a way that nurses did not have the time to do at the patient bedside. She really enjoyed learning about
nutrition and complementary therapies from the course. She helps people to understand the benefits of healing nutrition and also the need for resolving emotional issues. She promotes meditation, reiki, prayer, exercise, and yoga as she has seen the positive changes from these complimentary therapies. Ruth also helps people to understand complicated medical language and to develop open communication with their doctor. Ruth’s services at Guide For Hope also include cardiac coaching as many of the medications people are taking for cancer have cardiac implications.
