Cancer

Cancer Wellness TV

Over my years of hands-on experience with cancer patients, I have developed a set of mind-body techniques that take into account the physical, mental, and spiritual trials that come with cancer. I know that patients need to be re-energized from within, with peace of mind and greater emotional stability.

To spread my mind-body techniques to as many people as possible, I have teamed up with my friend, student, and 2x cancer survivor, Jeff Sirlin, to create a brand new website, Cancer Wellness TV. It's a free, one-stop-shop for all cancer complementary therapies. That means my techniques based on Qi Gong and Tai Chi, as well as nutrition guides, recipes, expert interviews, support therapy talks, and more.
