An Integrative Nurse is a Call Away

5/5

Whether you are new to cannabis and need to learn the basics, or have been experimenting for a while and are looking to maximize the benefits, the cannabis nurses in the Heal Navigator network are here to help. 


While considering a cannabis protocol you’re probably trying to find answers to some urgent questions:

  • How do l know if medical cannabis is right for me?
  • What are the right strains / ratio / dosing? 
  • What if cannabis isn’t legal yet in my state/country?
  • How to monitor my progression?
  • How to avoid interactions with other medication?

An Integrative Nurse is available to help you find the protocol that’s best for you!

What patients say about the consultation:

“Elizabeth Sherwood was beyond helpful, very knowledgeable about the fenbendazole, how to use it, what to ask Drs and what tests to get. She just made me feel very comfortable about what I’m doing. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for answers.”
Susan Cocchiola
“The nurse was SO GREAT. Kind, helpful, lots of good tips and resources. Really listened and answered all of our questions. A great feeling to know there is someone that is available for questions and explain the process of everything. Especially on the alternative medicine side when your regular oncologist really can’t recommend things out of the 'standard of care options'.”

As an experienced and compassionate nurse with over 35 years of experience, I specialize in Integrative Oncology care. I am well-versed in conventional,  alternative and integrative therapies and enjoy a  special focus on the benefits of nutritional choices, supplements and repurposed medications.. I also have advanced knowledge in the use of medicinal cannabis for both symptom management, as well as integrative care protocols for those dealing with cancer. My passion is helping those dealing with cancer to find the information and support they need, to inform their decisions and advocate for themselves, as they move toward greater well-being and ideally optimized health outcomes.

The diagnosis of cancer is a pivotal time for patients and their families to assess their wellbeing and make informed treatment decisions. I am an advanced practice RN with over 42 years of clinical nursing experience. Throughout my nursing career, I have been honored to work with children, adolescents, adults and multigenerational families as they navigated the intense struggles and wonderful successes of life threatening health challenges, especially related to the diagnoses of cancer. I specialize in a patient centered, integrative, evidence informed approach to cancer care, including information about nutrition, supplements, off-label medications, lifestyle, conventional and alternative treatment options. I am passionate about meeting with patients and their loved ones to provide a knowledgeable, supportive, compassionate, and hopeful perspective.

I am so glad I found Heal Navigator and was connected to Kate Hansen. Kate is so knowledgeable with current research in the cancer field and understands many aspects of both the conventional and the complementary/alternative therapies available. I really appreciate both her personal connection and the time she spent getting to know me and my cancer journey, as well as her data-driven approach. I am so grateful for her input and assistance.

Leah - October 26, 2022

We were very impressed with Elizabeth Sherwood and the knowledge she has about ways to aid in our cancer fight! Our zoom consultation was very informative and, as promised, that afternoon she e-mailed us an overview of our conversation and provided us with a lot of information on vitamins and sent us links to research more information. We were very satisfied.

Robert V. - October 15, 2022 ● Bladder Cancer

Kate Hansen sets the gold standard and is the gold standard of medical practitioners! Over the past 3 years I have seen and/or been treated by over 150 MDs, Techs, RNs, Interns and Nurse Practitioners. Nurse Kate has out shined them all. I learned more about the available treatments for my cancer condition in one session with Nurse Kate than all the appointments with the Oncologist! It seems I have been kept in the dark by my medical care team. Nurse Kate, with her up-to-date knowledge of and experience with current research, imbued me with a strength and confidence to chart my future treatments and take charge of my health. Nurse Kate treated me with dignity, compassion, sensitivity and brought my humanity back into the medical practitioner/patient conversation. Thank You Kate. I will be setting up other consultations with you as I navigate my journey to better health. I highly recommend Nurse Kate Hansen without any reservations. I wish I had known about her in the early days of my diagnosis and treatment. I know she would have given me insight into the course of treatment I was in for and, more importantly, the right questions to ask the doctors!

Dr. Michal Regev Integrative Nurse Consultation Review

I’ve had an excellent experience! Nurse Kate was very knowledgeable, warm and understanding. She listened to me carefully and then made her suggestions. She followed the consultation with an email containing information and links to relevant research I could review. She stated she was open to any questions following our consultation. When I sent her an email with a couple of questions she responded promptly. I was very happy with her service.

Gerry - September 29, 2022

We found Elizabeth very knowledgeable and experienced in the illness that I am experiencing. She understood the issues we questioned her on and spent time explaining our concerns .She is absolutely the guide to lead us out of this overwhelming mountain.
We feel the compassion and confidence she exudes as she explains the products I’m taking. The information she has shared with I am already using in my daily regiments.
Thank you for the assistance she has provided – This could make the difference on the outcome of our difficult journey.

Donna - September 25, 2022 ● Cancer

It went beyond our expectations. Kate is just what we need to navigate this serious diagnosis. She gives us answers quickly, willingly and efficiently much more than our oncologist or oncology nurse that we currently see… And they are good, but she is excellent. She gives us hope and always answers promptly and so thoroughly. She sends us links. She gives us diet suggestions. She is the best!

I spoke with Liz Sherwood about my fathers condition. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the consultation. She was kind, thoughtful, and helped me better understand what I was too afraid to ask the doctors at the time of Dad’s diagnosis.

I had a consult with Elizabeth Sherwood and she happens to be the most competent nurse I have ever come across. She always goes the extra mile. She is so knowledgeable and warm. I have talk to her in the past. I call her my life saver. I feel very secure and comforted, she explains things in detail and with a written follow up. And what she may not be sure of she investigates. She’s invaluable.

Elizabeth was, in a word, wonderful– an absolutely top notch professional.  Not only did she answer all of my questions with care and concern, but the breadth of her knowledge was incredibly helpful in our discussion. And beyond that, the very next day, she followed up our talk with a deeply, detailed, comprehensive follow-up letter.   In it, Elizabeth provided me with additional information that she had gone and researched for me.  I could not have had a better experience.

Jim G. - July 21, 2022 ● Cancer

I did have the consultation with Joan Jackson and it went very well.  She has an abundance of knowledge in the Oncology area and was very helpful in recommending dietary additions to help combat the caner. I did send her my Meds and supplements, my blood test results, and the prostate biopsy report. Joan did follow up with an email covering our consultation and the data submitted to her.

I was very impressed with everyone I interfaced with in setting up the consultation and with the consultation itself. Thank you again for all your help and concern with my problem.

Barbara Fall - June 17, 2022 ● Cancer

My consultation with Liz was marvelous!  She is an astounding resource.  Through her, I’m learning which supplements can inhibit my particular tumor markers and slow cancer progression. Liz has sent me links to many articles as well.  At last I have a knowledgeable medical person helping me develop an ongoing protocol in my journey to wellness.  Despite the poor prognosis of my tumor markers, I believe I may be able to get well. That isn’t something traditional oncology could offer me.

My Dad is recently diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer. I helped my parents with a video appointment with Liz. Liz was SO GREAT. Kind, helpful, lots of good tips and resources. Really listened and answered all of our questions. A great feeling to know there is someone that is available for questions and explain the process of everything. Especially on the alternative medicine side when your regular oncologist really can’t recommend things out of the “standard of care options”.

The video consultation went very well.  Nurse Oncologist Liz was very knowledgeable and well prepared.
The follow up email was very thorough and recapped our consultation which is great and I am planning a follow up consultation with updated labs next week.
Thank you and God Bless for providing viable effective treatments besides the traditional cut and chemo for this horrid disease!
More importantly – the treatment regimen and cost are reasonable so many more people can benefit!

Liz was absolutely phenomenal. She provided me with some great insights and because I was in Mexico at the time, suggested items that I could purchase there that were more expensive here in Canada or not easily accessible.  I returned to Canada last week. She was worth every penny.

Babette Lamarre - October 25, 2021 ● Stage Four Ovarian Cancer

Over the last two years Liz has coached me through recurrences, and how to talk to my oncologists with the appropriate vocabulary and expectations to get as close to my goals as possible. Liz helped me understand the genetic pieces of my cancer as well as the side effects and how to mitigate them while undergoing various therapies. I just can’t say enough about how valuable her cutting edge input has been. Recently she told me about a new blood test that indicates recurrences earlier than scans do. Three years later and I’m still here walking 4-6 miles a day and working more than full time. Thank you, thank you, thank you Liz, and bless you and yours.

5/5
Jane - October 18, 2021 ● Cancer

I found Liz to be extremely knowledgeable, intelligent, resourceful, kind, friendly, compassionate, and interested. I so appreciate and trust the knowledge base that Liz draws her information from as she has interacted and spoken with many cancer survivors, especially breast cancer women. My comfort level has also been elevated speaking to Liz, as I know that Liz has had a plethora of consultations with people who, like myself, have run into difficult situations and it is of paramount importance to me to be able to sometimes speak with an individual who is positive, calm and so nice to speak with.

Wait, before you go!
