Our primary purpose is to practice the concept of Dhaya (from the Sanskrit word “daya”). This is a philosophy as much as a word, and encompasses the virtues of humility, empathy, compassion and selfless service. At Dhaya we put our patients first with the goal of achieving wellness and vitality. We are dedicated to researching new initiatives to further the field of complementary cancer care utilizing botanicals and other natural modalities.
Cathy is a Holistic Nutritionist and Certified Professional Cancer Coach. She received her Bachelor of Science from the University of Toronto at St. Michael's College, majoring in Psychology. She is a graduate of the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and received her cancer coaching certification from the National Association of Professional Cancer Coaches. Cathy specializes in the functional application of nutrition for root cause health improvement in the area of chronic disease with a focus on cancer care.
As a Holistic Nutritionist and Cancer Coach Cathy wants to show you the power that lies at the end of your fork. She believes that our current view of food as simply the source of energy is narrow. Food has a much greater role. It heals, it strengthens and it nourishes each pillar of our being; our mind, our body and our soul. Food has the power to prevent and to reverse disease.
Cathy has appeared on television and at speaking engagements educating people on topics such as nutritional support for cancer patients, immunity support and cancer coaching. She has been a guest speaker on a popular cancer informational internet program and is currently the host of The Health Hub, a radio talk show covering various aspects of integrative health.
