Anticancer Lifestyle Program
Making Changes, Moving Forward
The Anticancer Lifestyle Program is a lifestyle transformation program for people diagnosed with cancer who are ready to make some positive lifestyle changes. Evidence shows that a healthy diet, adequate physical activity, lowered exposure to toxins, social support, and stress management all help to maximize the body's natural defenses to fight cancer. After 12 weekly sessions, participants will have essential tools and information needed to sustain these desirable lifestyle changes.
Next Program Starts January 10th
How Participants Learn:
Our faculty uses a variety of teaching methods, group activities and discussion to keep you interested and provide a lot of opportunity for hands-on learning both inside and outside of the classroom. Over the course of 12 weeks we will focus on each of the four pillars of our program: diet, fitness, mindset and lowered exposure to toxins. Additionally, throughout the session we allow plenty of time for participants to socialize, share and learn from each other’s experience and provide support. Outside of the weekly classes, your learning will continue with peer coaching and individual work designed to support class discussion.
