“It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has.” ~Hippocrates
It’s hard to sum up my practice in a few short bullet points. Helping women with breast cancer has become my life’s work, not only a mission but also a dream come true. My work is never finished – I spend more time each week researching and learning as I do consulting and teaching. My protocols are evidence-based and regularly updated when new research becomes available. When you come to see me you are just as likely to benefit from something I learned last week as something I learned when I first trained, back at the turn of the century!
Cancer is still, essentially, a poorly understood disease, even within the medical profession. Treatments are well-intentioned but sadly hit and miss. Outcomes are frustratingly random (but I believe that’s because we’re measuring the wrong things). The drive to keep trying to understand – to find a ‘cure’ – never ends. The work I do is at the leading edge of what available and what’s understood about cancer and I aim to keep it that way.
I understand that it’s a significant financial commitment to work with me, especially in a country where health care is provided for free (though paid for through our taxes). I would dearly love it if this level of care was available on the NHS but I fear that’s a long way off. I strictly limit the number of clients I see each week so that I can provide a personalised service, and I do many hours’ work behind the scenes for every hour I spend with you in clinic.
If you want to check me out you can listen to several talks and podcasts which can be found over here. Please feel free to explore the site, maybe read a couple of my blog posts, look at my recipes, and then book a Planning Meeting if you want to take it further.
I think we’ll work well together if:
- You believe that removing cancer cells is not enough – reprogramming your body to function in a healthier way after treatment is important for recovery and survival.
- You prefer a personalised breast cancer programme, tailored to your diagnosis and biochemistry provided by a qualified and dedicated breast cancer specialist.
- You feel safer being guided by a highly experienced practitioner and long-term survivor who understands the physiological and psychological around your health situation.
- You want to get to the root of the problem, correcting longstanding health issues, and compensating for personal biochemical differences, rather than following a one-size fits all solution.
- You understand that your body may need more support than ‘average’ in order to stay healthy and want to maximise your innate healing ability and you are prepared to put the work in to make that happen.
- You want to follow an evidence-based approach that considers all the angles, understanding the medical viewpoint but also taking a holistic perspective, to help you make informed decisions about your health.
- You would rather work with your body than against it – supporting natural and innate healing mechanisms to support recovery.
It has taken me more than twenty years of continuous study to build my practice to a point where I can share safe, powerful and personalised advice about this complex and multi-faceted disease. I have worked with hundreds of happy clients and I look forward to meeting you and helping to inspire your recovery!
