Description

Diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma at 27, I embarked on a 20+ year journey exploring the link between nutrition and cancer. Lymphedema, a commonly overlooked yet life-altering side effect of breast cancer, necessitates expert guidance for management. Join me to gain cutting-edge skills in oncology nutrition, supporting breast cancer patients and survivors and explore all of today’s hottest topics in the field:

Food and Risk Reduction for Breast Cancer
Can diet and nutrition really impact breast cancer risk for primary or recurrent breast cancer? Is this true for this with risk factors as well as without? Concrete evidence-informed guidance will provide empowerment to your patients with or at risk of breast cancer. 

Taming the Sugar Beast: Implications for Breast Cancer Survivors
Delve into the link between sugar intake and cancer progression. Learn practical strategies to help patients reduce sugar consumption and promote anti-inflammatory eating patterns for enhanced well-being.

The Estrogen-Food Connection:
Unravel the intricate relationship between dietary estrogens and breast cancer risk. Learn which foods have estrogenic compounds and if these are in fact risk factors and what to do about it. The estrogen topic includes: soy, flax, dairy and red meat.

Soy and Breast Cancer: Separating Myth from Fact
Explore the latest scientific evidence surrounding soy consumption and its impact on breast cancer. Understand how to advise patients on incorporating soy safely into their diet, dispelling common misconceptions.

Flax and Breast Cancer: Helpful or Dangerous?
Flax has more than 100x the amount of lignans than any other food. Are the lignans helpful or harmful? And how do you advise your breast cancer patients? Get the facts on flax.

Red Meat and Dairy: Does Vegan Win at Breast Cancer?
Red meat and dairy are often vilified, but do they deserve it? The latest meta-analyses on these food groups will be presented and what it means for breast cancer patients. 

Lympha- What? Deep Dive into Post-Cancer Lymphedema
Understand the risks for lymphedema and what can be done about it. Don’t worry, if you aren’t a lymphedema therapist –get an update on the lymphatic system, lymphedema, how to diagnose it, how to treat it, surgeries, and complementary therapies.

Navigate Lymphedema with Nutrition:
This is where you will have an advantage over other practitioners. Nutrition is often left out of the curriculum for lymphedema therapists, but it matters! Learn a comprehensive nutrition approach to managing lymphedema. Discover targeted approaches to reduce swelling, promote lymphatic health, and enhance overall quality of life.

Case Studies – Let’s Get Real
Learning the research is one thing, but how does it look in real-life women who have gone through breast cancer and are now living with lymphedema? Understand their challenges and how some understanding and support can help them. 

Inspire change and empower patients with the tools to make informed nutritional choices. Together, let's pave the way for a brighter, healthier future in oncology nutrition. Join me on this impactful journey of knowledge and compassion.
