Functional nutrition and lifestyle coaching for breast cancer survivors in remission

Holistic Recovery Tools

Reducing the risk of reoccurrence

Maria Wessling Bachteal’s approach to healing comes from a functional medicine perspective. Maria supports her client’s to heal the underlying issues, rather than stick to simply relieving symptoms.

Maria received a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry and went on to an early career as a writer and editor in environmental and social sciences. When her children were out of grade school, Maria retrained in holistic and function nutrition, receiving certificates from Bauman College and the Functional Nutrition Alliance.

Maria’s personal experience with two breast cancer diagnoses (the second time stage 4) and achieving remission with an integrative approach gives her unique insight into all the facets of healing and preventing a recurrence. Maria celebrated her 8th year NED in March 2023. In her consulting practice and Facebook page she shares her knowledge and toolas with others who want to live better after breast cancer.

Maria works virtually with clients in the US or Canada by video chat to develop nutrition and lifestyle programs for:

→ reducing the risk of breast cancer or any chronic illness.

→ reducing the risk of recurrence for breast cancer survivors who are in remission.

Note: Maria does NOT work with those going through active cancer treatment.
