Welcome back to WellSeekers as we continue this brand new five part series focusing on cancer. In this series, we’ll share inspiring and powerful conversations full of encouragement, hope, wisdom, touching personal stories, and most importantly real world solutions; all from a holistic perspective. We’ll talk with professionals and friends of the show on what it’s like to hear those words “you have cancer”, real life and practical wisdom and solutions for supporting those diagnosed and living with cancer, support for caregivers, and their heroic kind and self-less acts. So join us on this extraordinary series as we want to help you grow and thrive in the face of a cancer diagnosis if you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, are living with cancer, know someone dear to you with cancer, or want to prevent this fast growing, deadly and sometimes chronic disease.
On today’s show, we welcome Hannah Lawrie, the Nutrition Nurse and a Board Certified Nutrition Specialist (BCNS), as we continue this series talking about nutrition and cancer. Hannah's nutrition philosophy is grounded in finding the root cause of disease and utilizing a whole foods no-nonsense approach with healthy lifestyle changes to support the foundational needs of the body to restore proper functioning. With 30% of cancer related to poor dietary habits, according to a study by the World Health Organization, we'll unravel how food and our dietary habits can be used as medicine to make lasting positive change. We talk about the ingredients and the quality of ingredients in our food that are associated with supporting cancer prevention and cancer care, and the benefits and strategies for making and preparing your own meals and snacks. We’ll also clear up some common misconceptions, highlight recent and cutting edge studies around food and cancer cells, and lastly offer additional resources for your nutritional support.
If you or someone you know are living with cancer, or looking for cancer prevention, we’re here to walk along side you in your journey! When it comes to nutrition and cancer, you won’t want to miss this amazing show with Lucia and expert guest Nurse Hannah right here on WellSeekers.

Hannah Lawrie started her career in healthcare as a Registered Nurse in 2013 after graduating from University of Southern Maine. Her experience in nursing is varied; including pediatrics, cardiology, med-surg, inpatient orthopedics, home health care, and school nursing. After becoming a nurse, Hannah quickly realized that our "health care" system was based on sick-care and had little to no emphasis on prevention, and that most healthcare professionals aren't equipped to address lifestyle and nutrition.
Hannah then began pursuing a Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition & Integrative Health from Maryland University of Integrative Health. Graduating in 2018, Hannah is a Board Certified Nutrition Specialist (BCNS). Since that time she's been working in nursing and seeing private nutrition clients. Her nutrition philosophy is grounded in finding the root cause of disease and utilizing a whole foods no-nonsense approach with healthy lifestyle changes to support the foundational needs of the body to restore proper functioning. Her goal is to educate clients to understand how food can be used as medicine so that they feel empowered to make lasting change on their path towards health.
