The Nourish and Thrive online programme consists of 8 lessons (1 per week). See below for the theme of each lesson and a little detail about what is covered.
Lesson 1 – Nutrition
Is there a magic diet that can support your body during cancer? Many people think so. The trouble is there are lots of different opinions out there when it comes to the ultimate anti-cancer diet so choosing which approach to follow can be difficult and stressful. This lesson will teach you the important things you need to know to help you find the healthy eating approach perfectly suited to your unique needs and will give you practical ideas so that you can implement powerful healing dietary changes straight away.
Lesson 2 – Detoxification
Increasing evidence suggests that toxic chemicals may have a role to play in the development of cancer and it seems likely that they will also inhibit healing in those who’ve already received a diagnosis, especially as certain cancer treatments can undermine the function of the main detoxification organ, the liver. This lesson will explore the ways in which you can minimise your exposure to toxic chemicals and enhance the function of the elimination and detoxification systems of the body thereby reducing your body’s chemical load.
Lesson 3 – Physical activity and movement
The evidence is clear; physical activity has a positive impact on the health of those who’ve received a cancer diagnosis. But did you realise that the wrong type of exercise can weaken your body, including your immune system? This lesson will teach you why physical activity is so important after cancer and which activities are most beneficial. It will also provide practical tips on how to exercise safely.
Lesson 4 – Rest and relaxation
Insufficient rest and chronic stress are two of the most damaging factors for the immune system and it is therefore crucial that those with cancer address any imbalances in these areas. This lesson will show you how to enhance the quality of your sleep and will discuss how you can incorporate deeply relaxing techniques into your daily schedule that will boost the regenerative and healing capabilities of your body.
Lesson 5 – Bio-energetic balance
Our bodies are constructed of energy at the most basic level and those energies are strongly influenced by energies from outside sources such as geomagnetic forces, electromagnetic radiation and daylight. This lesson will explore how various energies have a positive and negative impact on our health and how we can maximise the effects of positive energies to rebalance our bodies and support healing.
Lesson 6 – Emotional wellbeing
Unresolved emotional pain places a huge burden on the body and is one of the most important factors contributing to disease. This lesson will explore the power of our emotions and will give guidance on how to handle challenging emotions so that they may serve to expand awareness and support healing rather than undermine recovery.
Lesson 7 – Deep connection
Loss of connection in 3 areas of our lives seems to play a large role in the deeper story of why cancer shows up in our lives. These areas are loss of connection with the deepest aspect of ourselves, loss of meaningful connection with others, and loss of spiritual connection. This lesson will discuss the importance of connection in these 3 areas and will provide guidance on how to enhance relationships with those things that provide most support during a journey of healing.
Lesson 8 – Plan to thrive
Research shows that people with cancer who play a more active role in decisions regarding their treatment and other aspects of care often have a better disease outcome. This lesson will explore why taking charge of your own health matters so much and will explain why planning is an essential part of this process. You will be taught how to create a ‘Thrive Plan’ which will help you incorporate into your recovery journey the important healing elements you have discovered over the period of the course.
