Hello, everybody. Welcome to the Global Cancer Symposium 2.0. I’m Nathan Crane. I’m the award winning filmmaker of “Cancer The Integrative Perspective” as well as the director of the Health and Healing Club. You can learn more about that at And today we are talking with Dr. Keesha Ewers about her cancer journey and emotional healing. This is the emotional healing aspect of helping anyone going through cancer is one of the most important aspects. I have a nine module masterclass that I’m teaching. And that is like really the number one underlying component of not only cancer but pretty much most chronic diseases, as we have to understand emotionally what is leading to the body entering a constant state of sympathetic response. 

Meaning that your body’s not healing as often as it should. And often we can find underlying emotional trauma that’s directly associated with that. And we get to the root of that and start healing emotionally. Miraculously what happens in a lot of people’s cases. And there’s a lot of case studies on this as well, and a lot of anecdotal stories. A lot of people I’ve interviewed who they addressed that as one of the primary root causes and they start to heal. So that’s a critically important topic. And I’m glad you’re joining us today. I am going to read Dr. Keesha’s bio, and then we’re gonna bring her in and dive right in. I promise you, there’s gonna be some really valuable tools for you to take away to help you on your own mental, emotional healing journey. So make sure to stick with us through this whole thing. It’s gonna be a good one. 

Dr. Keesha Ewers is board certified in functional medicine, and Ayurvedic medicine, a Doctor of Sexology, which is a new one for me. I should learn more about that. A Psychotherapist, a family practice advanced registered nurse practitioner with a specialty in integrative medicine. She’s a Conscious Dying Doula, which we need more of nowadays, especially with our culture at least here in the United States where death is this topic that is so taboo and conscious dying, oh my gosh, what an amazing thing. Maybe we’ll dive into that today. I wasn’t even planning on it but it’s such a powerful topic I think worth discussing. She’s a master’s of divinity student and the founder and medical director of the Academy for Integrative Medicine Health Coach Certification Program. 

Dr. Keesha has been in the medical field for over 30 years. After conducting the hurt, H-U-R-T, study in 2013, which stands for healing, unresolved trauma. She developed a hurt model for understanding how past childhood trauma impacts adult health. This led to the creation of You Unbroken online program for patients to heal their own trauma and the mystic medicine, deep immersion healing retreats, she leads at her home in San Juan Island, Washington. Dr. Keesha is a popular speaker, including at Harvard and from the TEDx stage. And she’s the best-selling author of “Solving The Autoimmune Puzzle: The Woman’s Guide to Reclaiming Emotional Freedom and Vibrant Health”. You can learn more about her great work.
