Kirstin Veugelers, PhD, is on a mission to help patients and their loved-ones get results from Canada’s stretched healthcare system.

Now she bridges the gap between patients and medical care providers, by drawing on her patient experience, as well as her knowledge and skills from biochemical research and university teaching. Patients benefit from Kirstin’s effective communication with doctors at medical appointments, as well as her wrap-around support before and after the appointment, so clients can focus on improving their health and wellbeing.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer Nov. 2016. Initially, I resisted the conventional approach and chose to explore alternative therapies for three months. With the many different answers, opinions in relation to nutritional, holistic, and naturopath remedies (including cannabis), my research had me in a very confused state. This was about the time I met Kirsten. Kirsten is smart and non-judgmental. Kirsten helped me to understand how cancer cells work (grow/spread). At my request, Kirsten provided thoroughly researched answers to my questions as well as recapped doctor’s appointments in a very easy to understand manner. This information armed me with the insight and confidence to move forward with conventional treatments. I am grateful to have met Kirsten and give thanks for her guided help.
