Emilia Dewi also known as the Lymph Therapist, has been supporting cancer patients on their journey for many years in the role of occupational therapist. On a typical Thursday afternoon one day in February this year, Emilia received her own unthinkable diagnosis. Breast cancer. The enormity of receiving this personal diagnosis compounded by her own professional understanding of the disease process and prognosis meant that she had a big inner journey ahead of her on her path to wellness.
Emilia’s team of medical professionals strongly recommended that she take the traditional treatment path; chemotherapy, surgery, radiation and hormone therapy followed by reconstruction surgery. Emilia took it into her own hands to take a deep dive into the research and alternative treatment options, that she was unaware existed prior to her own diagnosis. Her own learning journey took her on the path to understanding how stress, environmental toxins, foods and emotions affect cancer and remission. Emilia has completely changed her lifestyle with her newfound knowledge and is navigating life with breast cancer the best way she knows how.
