What is Lymphedema Therapy?
Lymphedema Therapy is called Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) [also known as Combined/Complex Decongestive Therapy/Physiotherapy]. CDT is considered the gold standard of treatment for lymphedema. Many studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of CDT for improving lymphedema symptoms such as swelling and pain. CDT is adapted to each unique case and individuals may benefit from some or all of the treatment elements.
Traditional CDT consists of two phases: Phase 1 = Decongestion and Phase 2 = Maintenance.
The following four components are applied in both phases:
- Manual Lymphatic Drainage – gentle massage technique that stimulates flow of lymphatic fluid and helps reduce symptoms
- Compression Therapy – supports lymphatic system by helping to encourage fluid out of the tissues and keeps further build-up to a minimum
- Exercise – individually prescribed exercises to improve lymph drainage together with compression therapy
- Self-Care – risk reduction practices including proper skin, nail, and wound care, lifestyle advice, etc.
What is a Holistic Nutritionist?
Holistic Nutritionists educate the public and individuals on the benefits & necessity of an individualized, nutrition-based approach to healing and caring for the body. Orthomolecular Therapy involves the use of vitamins and nutrients in the form of diet and supplements to support the body and restore it to optimal health using substances natural to the body such as vitamin, minerals, amino acids and fatty acids.
As people realize the growing need to take more responsibility for their own health Nutritionists help them sift through the mountains of conflicting information and guide them towards a well-researched and nutritionally sound way of living.

What is a Cancer Coach?
A professional cancer coach is the physician’s newest partner in overcoming cancer. As such, it is the goal of the cancer coach to maximize the therapeutic outcomes of cancer prevention and treatment.
As educated health care professionals, the cancer coach addresses and defines the critical components that cancer patients face before, during and after their journey. Contributing risk factors – nutritional, environmental, lifestyle, psychosocial health – all need to be modified to avoid recurrence. Treatment education, resource planning, coping, and overall navigation through the disease process is critical during cancer.
Cancer coaches provide a variety of services directed to maximize adherence to the therapeutic plan creating an optimal environment for positive outcomes. Solidly based in independent research and documentation, we incorporate the most up to date information on transformational treatment options as the basis of our program. We strive to be on the cutting edge of cancer treatment and we update our protocols continuously. Prevention, early detection and appropriate intervention-with maximum benefit to the patient are the cancer coach’s goals!
