Holistic Cancer Coach
Debbie’s desire to learn more about Cancer was driven by the sad loss of her much loved father a few years ago to liver and bone cancer. Cancer touches many of our lives. Whether you are a patient, caregiver, survivor or you are looking at ways to reduce your risk.
Debbie was formally trained by the Centre for Advancement in Cancer Education and believes that 90% of all cancers can be eliminated through environmental and lifestyle choices alone, and science agrees. Therefore, her mission is to help people by providing research-based education on how to prevent, cope with and beat cancer through diet, lifestyle, meditation and other immune boosting strategies.
A mountain of research has shown that food plays an important role in reducing cancer. It is important to make the necessary changes and plant based, low fat foods are the best options for your plate.
Combined with her nutrition and counselling training, Debbie provides a holistic assessment and an individual plan to incorporate nutrition and lifestyle changes in your cancer treatment program as well as:
Cancer is a Preventable Disease that Requires Major Lifestyle Changes

This year, more than 1 million Americans and more than 10 million people worldwide are expected to be diagnosed with cancer, a disease commonly believed to be preventable. Only 5–10% of all cancer cases can be attributed to genetic defects, whereas the remaining 90–95% have their roots in the environment and lifestyle.
The lifestyle factors include cigarette smoking, diet (fried foods, red meat), alcohol, sun exposure, environmental pollutants, infections, stress, obesity, and physical inactivity.
The evidence indicates that of all cancer-related deaths, almost 25–30% are due to tobacco, as many as 30–35% are linked to diet, about 15–20% are due to infections, and the remaining percentage are due to other factors like radiation, stress, physical activity, environmental pollutants etc.
Therefore, cancer prevention requires smoking cessation, increased ingestion of fruits and vegetables , moderate use of alcohol, caloric restriction, exercise, avoidance of direct exposure to sunlight, minimal meat consumption, use of whole grains, use of vaccinations, and regular check-ups.
In this review, we present evidence that inflammation is the link between the agents/factors that cause cancer and the agents that prevent it. In addition, we provide evidence that cancer is a preventable disease that requires major lifestyle changes.
NOTE: This is just one of thousands of reports collected over the past 35+ years that support the education that Debbie has learnt.
