In this webinar:
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 wellbeing 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.
