"After diagnoses, of central concern to a cancer patient is:
What can I do to arrest tumor growth? Between doctor appointments there are
plenty of ways to participate in improving the chances of survival: Positive
Mental Attitude, Exercise, and most important, Nutrition. Books and workshops
abound, but I recommend personal assistance from a professional. A good place
to start is with Saskia Kleinert, whose clear and concise workshop was of great

"My experience with Saskia has been AMAZING. After trying so
many diets and having been frustrated by them, Saskia taught me how to
integrate a healthy nutrition in my life style. She had me setting a
realistic goal which was to lose ten pounds. I ended up losing 21! She
really helped me to understand my relationship with the food, how to
address it and correct it. I am now in charge of my nutrition. I can
control it and correct it.
It has been a total life change experience for me and also for my
family. I have a new approach with my two little boys about their
nutrition. I love the way I feel and have more energy! Thank you Saskia
