Shira believes in an integrative approach to healing – disease prevention and recovery is all about orchestrating the inner cacophony into a beautiful symphony. Exercise, Nutrition & Lifestyle habits construct our inner ecosystem, which determines if we are able to fend off or succumb to illness.
According to the CDC 75% of Illness is lifestyle, not genetic. Genetics is thought to be only 5-10% of cancer occurrence
Exercise is a vital member of our Inner ecosystem & therefore, Integrative Oncology. The myths and misinformation create mayhem. Shira is regularly consulted by Naturopaths, oncologists, health coaches on cancer exercise and exercise adherence. No 2 people, even with the same cancer and treatment protocol, will have the same exercise recommendations – this is unique per person.

Articles featured in: ezines, ArticlesInk, European Registry of Exercise Professionals, The National Post, Investment Executive Magazine, Directory of Greater Toronto, Canadian Leukemia & Lymphoma Association, Prostate Cancer Canada, Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada, Anytime Fitness, Today’s Black Woman, Today’s Seniors,
