“Just completed the Anticancer Lifestyle program. Strongly encourage survivors, those looking to prevent cancer, those with risk factors, and really all of us to take this course. Most of us are unaware of how many risks exist, particularly from environmental factors. My favorite was the environment section. People get some nutrition, stress management, and exercise guidance but virtually no information about toxins and their impact.”

I really loved this course…it has changed my life and makes me feel like I have some control over a non-controllable situation! THANKS SO MUCH!!”

“I cannot tell you enough how well done these courses are – everything was great – the videos and interactive activities were very helpful. The organization and delivery of the content is very impressive!

How to Boost Your Immune System Through Movement

The lymph organs play many roles in the body including fluid balance and immunity. Join this webinar to learn more about how mindfulness and gentle movement can boost your immune system by increasing lymphatic flow. Dr. Martha Eddy originally developed these movements to activate positive immune responses for Moving For Life (MFL), an exercise program originally designed for cancer recovery and now used by both older adults and people of any age concerned about cancer and health.

You will learn:

  • Simple movements that will improve your immune response
  • Why lymphatic flow is so important for overall health
  • How the immune system is influenced by exercise
  • Movement that reduces swelling and lymphedema, a common side effect of cancer treatment
