Inspiration for Cancer Prevention

Check out our upcoming events for Cancer Month this April!

April is Cancer Month and we at InspireHealth are once again partnering  with Choices Markets to provide public education highlighting the area of cancer prevention.

Despite major investment in research, better screening and cancer treatment, deaths from cancer have not been significantly reduced in the last 30 years. Cancer has become the leading cause of death in every province in Canada for the first time.

It is time for change – to focus on prevention as opposed to the disease and to embrace a  whole person approach to cancer.

 We have been working hard with the Nutrition Team at Choices  to develop “Inspired Choices” – a selection of natural superfoods and supplements that are simple and effective nutritional choices to prevent cancer and aid in recovery. During the month of April, stop by any Choices Market and pick up some of these items – distinguished by an InspireHealth dangler sign on the grocery shelf.

This weekend, on April 14th, we invite you to come to ‘Inspired Saturday’. Each of the seven Choices Markets in BC will feature an InspireHealth information table. Come along to sampledelicious offerings and pick up the Inspired Shopping list that features recommended foods, supplements, and health tips.This could be the first step in your journey to a healthier and happier lifestyle.
