Some Of Her Favorite Tools For Healing

How Beat Cancer’s Certified Holistic Cancer Coaching Course Helped Her to Heal Herself and Others
14:20 As a life coach and wanting to work with those with cancer, the course has filled the need for resources and deeper information on how to manage side effects and stay healthy when you have cancer. I love Beat Cancer’s approach in treating the person and not the cancer.
14:49 There is selfish component for taking the course also. I was a survivor of 4 years when I discovered the course and it has helped me to stay on track with things like nutrition and pumping the lymphatic system. There are so many great references to books and studies that I filled a whole notebook taking notes.
15:50 The depth of information from the course would’ve taken me years to compile.
We Need Each Other To Heal
22:09 Together we heal. We need each other. My greatest source of hope and light for me when I was going through my battle was hearing from other cancer survivors that had been through it and were living their lives years later. When I got my diagnosis a black curtain fell and I could not see beyond it.
