A message from Mary Moskowitz, MS CHC
(Certified Integrative Health Coach)
I wanted to remind all of you that I am here to support you in anyway I can with your wellness goals.
It can be really frustrating and challenging to make all the dietary and lifestyle changes we suggest by yourself and we want you to get better and succeed!
Your symptoms and disease states don’t happen overnight. It takes patience and support to heal, as we work with you to discover what works and doesn’t work for your individual body and physiology.
Below is an update on how you can work with me. We will continue to offer an initial 60 minute office session with me and Colleen (covered by your insurance). After your first session I am offering all of Colleen’s patients ongoing, 45 minute phone sessions that you would schedule with me (see info. below).
I will also be sending you a monthly newsletter with helpful wellness tips and updates to keep you informed and motivated.
We love supporting you all in creating a healthier, happier more joyful life!
HEALTH COACHING SERVICES AT INTEGRATIVE THERAPIES
Why DO I Need a Health Coach?
As your health coach, Mary is your wellness guide and supportive mentor. Working with Mary Moskowitz MS CHC, our Integrative Health Coach, will give you a deeper understanding of the foods and lifestyle choices that work best for you.
She will guide you toward lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance and health.
It’s hard to do it alone!
Mary teaches the concept of bio-individuality which means that each person has her or his own food and lifestyle needs. So, when the experts say, “Dairy is good for you” or “Fat is unhealthy,” it doesn’t apply to everyone.
By embracing the principle of bio-individuality, she will support you in making positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, personal preferences, and background. Mary believes that we are fed not only by food, but by other factors in our lives. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity and a spiritual practice are essential forms of nourishment.
Together we will explore balancing the primary foods in your life and supporting you towards lasting health and happiness.
To Get Started:
Book your first intake session with Mary and Colleen to go over your health history and treatment plan. This session is covered by insurance and available to all patients who are practice members.
Contact Carol at 699-3838 to set up your initial session.

Healing health issues paramount to the approach.
Functional medicine evaluation and approach to care (see www.functionalmedicine.org/).
Our goal as practitioners is to enhance oncology care by reducing side effects, enhancing the efficacy of chemotherapy, radiation or hormonal therapy, targeting mechanisms involved in multidrug resistance and radiation resistance and create an internal terrain or environment that is not conducive to cancer. This is an integrative approach to care which is highly individualized to the person and the type of cancer, working with you and your oncologist, and emphasizing nutrition as well as herbal and nutritional medicine which targets the cancer in a variety of ways. These therapies can dramatically improve your odds against cancer and reduce risk of cancer recurrence.
Integrative cancer care, using appropriately selected nutritional and herbal medicine, may help your conventional treatments to work better by taking away the “tools” cancer uses to resist conventional treatments and by fortifying the person against cancer. We encourage personalized chemotherapy when possible through tumor testing of various types which help us to know the best drugs to use in your situation.
We also work with patients who have completed conventional treatments and are looking to reduce their risk of recurrence utilizing a targeted approach specific to the patient and the type of cancer. Current research in the field of cancer is looking at ways to effect the environment and microenvironment of cancer – we have the ability to do this already with well-targeted treatment plans including nutritional and herbal medicine.
