As an integrative health practitioner with more then 20 years experience in Oncology Nursing and leadership, I have founded M. Elia Wellness, LLC, an education and consulting service for women affected by breast cancer.
M. Elia Wellness offers innovative services within the community, and larger healthcare systems working with populations at increased risk for cancer development.
• Unhealthy behaviors and lifestyles can impact cancer gene expression. I have designed an integrative health program for women at higher risk of breast cancer that works to help them reach their health goals and keep modifiable risk factors for cancer as low as possible by naturally working towards reducing chronic inflammation, supporting a healthy immune system and hormonal balance. My program addresses 3 main areas clients can choose : healthier eating , active living and stress management.
Separately, I offer complementary therapies as a certified chair yoga instructor and meditation guide. Any of these personalized services can be done in-person or virtually.
• M. Elia Wellness also consults with individuals and groups who have increased genetic or a strong familial risk factors for cancer that may have questions on genetic testing options, may need help identifying local resources or have questions on the latest evidence based research – what questions to ask their healthcare providers.
• M. Elia Wellness offers engaging, evidence-based, health education presentations and works with institutional and corporate organizations to design leading-edge wellness programs focused on improving health behaviors and lifestyles that reduce risks for cancer and chronic illnesses.
