It started with the discovery of a little bump on the side of her neck at a birthday luncheon. It turned into two years of back-to-back cancers, the harshest chemo, a stem cell transplant, a mastectomy and reconstruction. In this book, Laren Rusch Watson, a Board Certified Holistic Health and Nutrition Coach shares the emotional rollercoaster that she went through first with the shock of her diagnosis and then with reconciling the necessary chemical cocktail with her organic, all natural belief system; she shares it all in her typical casual style as if you were having coffee. The second part of the book she aims to help cancer patients through the difficult time just after diagnosis and through treatment by organizing all that she learned into seven sections, from food and health information to life altering lessons, to trippy spiritual experiences. This book will support the newly diagnosed cancer patient in finding strength and optimism through the hardest time of their life.
A Board Certified Holistic Health Coach since 2010, Laren Rusch Watson has been passionate about health and nutrition for years. Living what she thought was the quintessential healthy lifestyle and doing everything “right”, in August of 2013 she suddenly found herself diagnosed with not one, but two rare and hard to treat cancers, and facing the challenge of her life: finding a way to combine her natural organic lifestyle with the harsh chemotherapy required to save her life. Along the two year journey, she learned invaluable life lessons, expanding what she knew about the body, mind and spirit. She lives with her husband of 18 years, her two teenage kids and her loyal dog just outside of Seattle, Washington.
