CLARE Evans thinks cancer may just be about one of the best things that happened to her.
The experience left Ms Evans – who was battling the disease at just 30 – with a new approach to health and life.
Over six years ago, Ms Evans moved to Albury as part of her healing process and went on to pen her personal journey of healing, growth, and holistic medicine.
On Saturday, Ms Evans launched her book ‘Pure Balance’.
“I was inspired one day to write a book, the idea just came to me,” she said.
“I want to help people who go through similar experiences.
“I think a lot of people think that they’re healthy but they’re not, and it can be quite a shock.”
Ms Evans journey to discover her own health lead to re-evaluating her lifestyle, emotions, and well-being, which Ms Evans feels are all strongly connected to a healthy life.
She chose to launch her book on World Mental Health Day to highlight the importance of looking at health holistically.
“The intention behind Pure Balance is for readers to become aware of the fact that health and well-being is not limited to diet and exercise for the physical body.
“Balance of all aspects of being is required for people to heal, grow, and become self-empowered – to live happy and healthy lives.”
Ms Evans can now add author to the list of qualifications she has undertaken since her diagnosis, including reflexology, holistic counselling, and a certificate in nutritional education training.
