“Let food be thy medicine
and medicine be thy food.”
A Health Warrior is Born
Hearing the word “carcinoma” was terrifying. Hearing the aggressive treatments was equally terrifying — and nothing made any sense to me.
Despite being heavily pressured by a medical team of oncologists and surgeons, my gut led me to investigate. I soon felt confident to say NO to aggressive “cancer” treatments.
With the guidance of a nutritionist friend, I focused on learning about “food as medicine.”
I went from being frightened, confused and anxious to feeling calm, empowered and inspired. I became an avid researcher, blogger, Certified Nutritionist and advocate for informed decision-making and pro-active wellness practices.
I created DCIS 411 in 2011 to share my discoveries and resources. I love helping women find peace of mind and optimal health after a DCIS diagnosis.
In 2015, I created Give Wellness to share wellness information and nutritious recipes. Below you will find links to some of my favorite recipes and resources.
- Patient Heal Thyself
- Anti-Cancer: A New Way of Life
- Chris Beat Cancer: A Comprehensive Plan for Healing Naturally
