I am a breast cancer survivor and holistic cancer strategist who helps people make better, healthier, non-toxic choices.

I specialize in understanding the role of estrogen in breast cancer and debunks the myths associated. I am a Contributing Editor for The Truth About Cancer and was creator and host of the Survive and Live Well Radio Show on the Cancer Support Network. I am on the Medical Advisory Board for BeatCancer.Org and on the Advisory Board to the Radical Remission Project. look forward to getting to know all of you.
When I think to tell someone about myself, I usually say I'm a cancer survivor, a cyclist, hiker, nature lover, writer, obsessed with travel, passionate cancer advocate, explorer of the world around me, bookworm, proud aunt, and so much more. It also crosses my mind to share that I love life. I prefer to embrace the good parts of life, but I know that the pesky bad also shapes who we are.
How do I know? I've learned this lesson (and thousands of others) simply by embracing life each day, but also from surviving cancer. Diagnosed at 21 with osteosarcoma (an aggressive form of bone cancer), and later with melanoma, I decided then to appreciate each day I was fortunate to live (you 'grow up' pretty fast when you're smacked with cancer as a young adult, realizing that your parents' hugs can't fix that problem). It's not always easy to smile at every moment. I know that. In the 20 years since my diagnosis, I faced my dad's cancer diagnosis and death, the loss of too many friends, treatment side effects, relationship ups and downs, career challenges and more that test my smile, patience and optimism. And yet, I still believe in that positive outweighs negative, that kindness and smiles can change the world for the better, and if we focus on gratitude, we'll be okay.
I am a 22 year old ovarian cancer survivor who chose to heal holistically despite the odds against me. After immersing myself in alternative therapies for just seven short weeks, my body had transformed and the cancer was completely gone. I created a blog to share my healing journey as a source of inspiration for those who feel defeated in the face of a diagnosis and for those who are interested in living a lifestyle of prevention. The content is not only for those fighting the battle, but for anyone who desires to improve their spiritual, mental, or physical health. Thank you for joining me on this beautiful journey & lets continue to inspire each other!
In 2015 I was diagnosed with Colon Cancer stage IV, had tumor surgery and healed myself afterwards with natural cures, high dose supplements and a healthy diet consisting of vegetables and fruit and lots of organic tea. It only took me 4 months to be diagnosed completely free of cancer till today. I strongly believe my cancer will never come back as I have eliminated all the factors that lead to it - mainly toxic relationships.
My cancer story is on my blog http://www.vianovalife.com/category/cancer-victory/ along with other articles on cancer.

My mission is to empower people to heal and restore themselves to an optimal state of balance using essential oils and lifestyle changes. My private chef clients have ranged from those healing from late stage cancer; to yoga teacher trainees; international celebrities; and everyday folk hosting dinner parties. I have taught yoga to inner city kids in Harlem; the ultra rich of the Hamptons; young cancer survivors at an adventure retreat; and local moms at my hometown gym and yoga studio. I have facilitated healthy cooking classes to at risk youth; cancer survivors; and young children and have given countless lectures about the healing properties of essential oils.
I'm a creative soul, who just happened to discover that cancer can be killed naturally, without chemo, radiation or radical surgery. My wife experienced it, so I decided to make a film about it, and lo and behold the evidence is there for all to see. :)
I live in Dubai, i am an Artist and a self published Author of a book which is a journal of our journey into Alternative healing and the subsequent healing of an aggressive cancer, I wrote this book in a pseudonym (the names of my granddaughter's owing to the fact we used an illegal medicine in our protocol, My husband no longer takes cannabis oil so i can claim the book in my own name now, Since healing my husband, i have dedicated my time to sharing as much of my research and gained knowledge so that other's may open their eye's to the fact that cancer does not have to mean death.
