Do you have cancer, or know someone with cancer?
InspireHealth is not-for-profit society providing a whole-person approach for cancer. They include healthful nutrition, appropriate exercise, and emotional, spiritual and immune support. Their services are available to any Canadian living with cancer and their support people. They have offices in Vancouver, Victoria and Kelowna (British Columbia), plus an online virtual component for those not living in these three cities.
Their services used to cost $445 for membership, and now it is free!
I cannot stress the importance of getting whole-person, integrative care through the cancer journey. Without it, you might be dealing only with oncologists and specialist appointments, surgery and cancer drugs. It’s critical to support the body’s healing ability with whole-person care. For me, my biggest take-aways were learning what foods to eat or avoid, healthful cooking, relaxation such a meditation and yoga, and most importantly, feeling that I had some control over what was happening to me. Using their doctors as part of my team gave me more confidence in my choices.
I was fortunate to find InspireHealth through dear friends in the first week of my diagnosis. InspireHealth introduced me to the world of whole-person care, and now I’ve been able to learn well beyond this myself.
Here is an testimonial I did for InspireHealth in 2010, unscripted and a bit shaky, I wanted to let people know the importance of InspireHealth.
I didn’t know what I didn’t know – whole-person care (whether you have cancer or not) is so important to living life fully and with intention. InspireHealth started me on this path, and now I realize that their teachings were just the start. I wish I had known this earlier in life!
