#159 Reclaim Your Anti-Cancer Lifestyle with Dr Catherine Zollman
A multidisciplinary approach in cancer care is a positive and empowering experience where people can choose what they would like to be doing. Every tool and approach adds on to synergistically provide better support. This is what my guest, Dr Catherine Zollman, GP, medical director of Penny Brohn UK cancer charity, firmly believes in.
Catherine trained to registrar level in Medical Oncology before qualifying as a GP in 1995. She completed a Fellowship in Integrative Medicine at University of Arizona in 2010 and works part-time as an NHS GP and as GP Cancer Lead for the local Clinical Commissioning Group.
Today we talk about:
- The next generation of lifestyle medicine practitioners
- General principles of an anti-cancer diet
- Medical tests informing not directing treatment
- The rainbow of exercises and why moving has anti-cancer benefits
- Building resilience and how for some people, cancer is an opportunity to start thinking about what makes their life richer.
Plus a special guest appearance from Catherine’s son, Luke and his friend Louis who were helping out during the conference and are fans of the podcast who wanted to say hi!
