Breast Cancer Survivor, Author, Online Wellness Consultant/Coach
In a recent episode of Navigating Cancer TOGETHER, I had a heartfelt conversation with Crystal Grenier, a breast cancer thriver and advocate for holistic healing. Crystal shared her personal journey with cancer, her work as a wellness consultant, and her new book, "Crystallize Your Health: Thriving Through Chronic Illness." This blog post will delve into the key takeaways from the episode and highlight the importance of embracing holistic healing for cancer survivors.
The Power of Emotional Healing
Crystal emphasized the significance of addressing emotional well-being as part of the healing process. She shared her own experience of repressing emotions and how it manifested in her body as breast cancer. By working with a therapist and a coach, Crystal learned to process her grief and emotions, leading to a profound shift in her overall well-being.
The Healing Pillars
Crystal discussed her three pillars of healing: nourishment, movement, and emotional alchemy. She highlighted the importance of nourishing the body with healthy food, engaging in physical activity that suits individual needs, and cultivating emotional well-being through practices like meditation, journaling, and energy work.
During 2022, Crystal organized three seasons of the Female Chronic Illness workshop, which focused on nourishment, movement, and alchemizing. I was fortunate enough to participate in the workshop and share my story and insights, along with many others. You can listen to the workshop for FREE and gain valuable knowledge and understanding.
