We are proud to introduce you to Tree of Life by The Cancer Coach™: Designed using evidence-based information, Tree of Life is a revolutionary health, lifestyle, and anti-cancer wellness community and programme that aims to support, inspire, and empower individuals by gathering tools, creating a solid foundation of health, and living in alignment with their well-being goals.
Introduction to Tree of Life and the Anti Cancer Lifestyle Programme
Professionally designed and endorsed by oncology, lifestyle medicine, and behavioural science experts, and shaped by health coaches, cancer survivors and patient advocacy groups, Tree of Life stands against a growing culture of chronic illness and reduced quality of life. But it doesn’t have to be that way. The programme provides the tools and support to reverse and prevent poor health through evidence-based lifestyle interventions and behavioural changes.
Tree of Life works with the individual to ensure their future self is the best version possible! A resilient and optimised human being who understands the dynamics and benefits of good health. A person who thrives on their relationships with friends, family, and colleagues while being an integral part of a working culture of well-being, respect, and understanding.
Tree of Life empowers individuals to lower the risk of cancer and other chronic illnesses. It provides useful advice if someone has recently been diagnosed with cancer; dealing with the emotional and physical effects of cancer treatments; when medical appointments are over; reintegration back into the workforce and guidance for caregivers of loved ones; Tree of Life is also for Workplace wellness providers and employee assistance programmes (EAPs) aiming to incorporate programmes focused on specialised cancer research and measurable outcomes to enhance their current portfolio beyond generic workplace wellness offerings; Insurance providers who want to empower their customers to achieve better health outcomes and reduce the risk of claimants; Employers who want to see higher productivity, fewer absences, less burnout, attract and retain their best talent and be an employer of choice when recruiting; Cancer Treatment Providers to improving their patients outcomes and long-term health.
Every person and every experience with cancer is unique. Tree of Life can help people at every phase of their cancer journeys:
Throughout history, many cultures have used the Tree of Life as a symbol of health and well-being. Trees are beautiful living organisms required for a healthy and thriving ecosystem. They come in many shapes and sizes, and grow in unusual circumstances.
Just like a tree, the programme starts with the seed of intention. Under the right conditions, the seed develops roots that are deep, strong, and continuously growing, and a trunk that supports branches that blossom with leaves and flowers, living in harmony with the surrounding environment, attracting a diversity of life to create a strong, resilient, and flourishing tree that can withstand and embrace changes and challenges. This is what it means to live an anti-cancer lifestyle. This lifestyle also helps individuals to reduce the likelihood of aggravating conditions such as, lack of energy, weight gain, poor sleep quality, chronic stress or depression, digestive issues, low immune system function, poor skin quality, premature ageing, and reduced cognitive function, that can be precursors to other chronic illnesses including obesity, mental health, type-2 diabetes, arthritis, asthma, osteoporosis, and heart disease.
The Tree of Life Anti-Cancer Lifestyle Programme aligns the fundamentals of the health of a tree to that of the physical, emotional, and spiritual health of a person, and is delivered in 7 modules:
Tree of Life is a comprehensive programme that’s suitable for people with a variety of learning styles. To help, you’re provided with a personalised learning experience through learning style recommendations.
Completing the programme isn’t the end, it’s just the end of the beginning. Once each person completes Module 7 they receive an exclusive invitation to book a complimentary one-on-one lifestyle analysis with a professional health coach to look at progress through the programme and to provide a tailored lifestyle plan with recommendations on the areas to focus on next based on unique circumstances. Living an anti-cancer lifestyle is a journey, and Tree of Life will continue to help each person to implement tools, techniques, and practices.
We believe that everyone using the Tree of Life Anti-Cancer Lifestyle Community and Coaching Programme has an opportunity to live a more fulfilling and optimal life, whether a person is looking to reduce the risk of cancer, support cancer treatments, improve recovery, or promote self-care for caregivers of loved ones with cancer.
Understanding each person’s unique learning style is essential to unlocking their full potential as a member of the Tree of Life Anti-Cancer Lifestyle Community and Programme. The comprehensive programme is designed to help each member to apply lifestyle interventions within their unique environment.
This is where the interactive What Kind of Student Are You? Discover Your Learning Style with Tree of Life questionnaire comes in:
The purpose of the questionnaire is to identify individual learning styles and create a personalised learning pathway that aligns with preferences and needs. By discovering how each member learns best, Tree of Life offers guidance on how to make the most impactful use of the Tree of Life community and programme.
Based on the answers the questionnaire provides the next relevant question, and will then provide a suggested learning style from a total of 9 different learning styles, such as: Social and Kinaesthetic learner, Social and Tactile learner, Social and Auditory learner, Solitary and Visual learner, Solitary and Kinesthetic learner, and more…
The vault of ToolKit content has been professionally designed and produced to assist the transition towards an anti-cancer lifestyle. The content sets new industry standards and transcends what other providers can offer.
The programme offers an extensive Knowledge Base that provides academic studies, clinical trials and detailed explanations of why and how these lifestyle interventions have been effective in cancer prevention, reducing side effects from treatment, aiding in post-treatment recovery, and supporting those who care for a loved one with cancer. Considering the ‘why’ is an important step to behaviour change status and ultimately, better health and well-being outcomes.
A significant feature of Tree of Life is the customisable digital Workbook that enables members to progress and develop a genuinely personalised action plan.
There are dedicated personal spaces for Journaling thoughts and feelings and making Symptom Tracking notes and observations.
Isolation and the fear of doing this alone is a typical emotional response for someone managing cancer. However, journeying through Tree of Life isn’t solitary. The vibrant Community is the cornerstone for connection, support, and growth. Engage in discussions, collaborate with fellow members, and receive guidance from qualified cancer coaches in a secure, interactive space.
Bringing together a community of like minded people with common health and well-being goals is key to this mission.
Tree of Life communities are safe, secure, and compliant spaces that encourage open and engaging conversation in the comfort of a group environment
We’re sensitive to the Optimal Learning Requirements of everyone who engages with Tree of Life. The “What Kind of Student Are You?” questionnaires create a personalised experience by guiding members towards the materials and features that align with their unique learning skills and style.
Through regular Events, members have unlimited access to video lectures, simulations, live webinars, live and recorded group learning sessions, and many more interactive options. These help each member to truly engage with the programme and to gain a deeper understanding of the material and content in the most meaningful way whilst also being able to further connect to other members going through the programme.
Adapting the messaging with multi-lingual translation options increases the scope of participation and Inclusivity. Even more importantly, the team behind Tree of Life consistently strive for levels of Cultural Sensitivity that offer genuine opportunities for all ethnicities.
The mission of the Tree of Life Anti-Cancer Lifestyle Community and Programme is clear: Support, Inspire, and Empower positive lifestyle changes, reduce the number of preventable cancers, improve the lives of those affected by the disease, guide employees returning to work, and provide optimal support for caregivers.
