Gilly Bertram Talks About Her Journey With Brain Cancer & Becoming a

Published on: 22nd February, 2021

Thank you for listening to our Cancer Talks podcast with Gilly Bertram, Registered Nutritional Therapist, Integrative Health Coach and brain cancer survivor and thriver. 

In 2015 Gilly was diagnosed with Stage 3 Brain Cancer. She had a successful career in fashion, was living in Paris but life changed after having two seizures and then a diagnosis of anaplastic astrocytoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer. 

Join us to hear Gilly’s story on making the decision to undergo conventional treatment and combine it with complementary therapies and lifestyle changes. Doing both enabled her to manage and eventually thrive through her treatment. This fuelled her desire to help others going through the same things so she decided to attend The School Of Optimum Nutrition. 

She really is an inspiration and we were so lucky to have the opportunity to speak with her. If you would like to get in touch with her you can find her on the following platforms:

About the Podcast

Cancer Talks
Talking with people and practitioners about cancer
Cancer Talks is an exciting new podcast hosted by 3 qualified and
registered Nutritional Therapists: Linda Sims, Deb MacLeod and Andrea
Burton. Linda and Andrea see cancer clients in their nutrition clinics and
all 3 are passionate about helping people who are living with a cancer
diagnosis.

Nutritional therapy is a very valuable tool in cancer prevention
but it also helps to support the body during and post treatment – nutrition
can help all the way along a cancer journey. Whilst there are never any
promises when it comes to cancer, improving overall health and enjoyment of life is the best strategy.

This is personal for the 3 of us – we have all been touched by cancer – and we want to help cut through all the jargon, the research and the, dare we say it, fake news! We want to empower you to have the best health outcome that you can.

There is so much conflicting information in the world; especially now with
the rise of social media and the always available internet! It is so
difficult to know what to eat, what not to eat, when to eat and even how to
eat and it can be very confusing to make sense of it all. Our aim is to help
you navigate through this information so you can make better and more
informed decisions.

We will be hosting medical doctors, cancer survivors, cancer patients,
nutritional therapists, integrative doctors and other healthcare
practitioners so please tune in every month to see who we have been chatting with. We are also open to your ideas about what you would like us to talk about so please feel free to get in touch at: cancertalkstalk@gmail.com
