It is common and absolutely normal that a diagnosis of cancer may bring up some curiosities, concerns, and confusion around food and nutrition. In this talk, we will take a step back and expand on why we eat and ways to decrease the stress around our choices in this journey. We will touch on some physiological aspects of how we digest and use the foods we eat as well as how we can support our overall well-being with both eating practices and the food choices we make. By exploring self-kindness and nourishing our whole body, in whatever way that means for us, we can bring move towards a peaceful relationship with food.
InspireHealth is a nonprofit organization in operation since 1997 in British Columbia. Our mission is to inspire people affected by cancer to enhance their quality of life and well-being by integrating wisdom and evidence-informed practices that support the mind, body, and spirit. All services, programs, and classes are completely free of charge. No referral is required.

She graduated from St. Francis Xavier University in 2005 with a BSc. in Human Nutrition. She is a Registered Dietitian and has been working mostly in community settings with a focus on food security and traditional foods practices. Erin has always had an interest in holistic health and humanistic medicine which made InspireHealth a perfect fit.
