ONE STEP AT A TIME, RECOVER YOUR ENERGY, CONFIDENCE, JOY, AND VIBRANCY IN LIFE!
Overcoming cancer is a significant victory. But the disease and treatment can leave you feeling exhausted, scared, and lonely. Your digestive system may be messed up from medications, chemotherapy, or radiation. Your metabolism may be off and your immune system is surely confused. The oncologist may have given you some tips on eating better. But you need help putting the right things into practice.
And you don’t just want to be cancer free. You want to learn how to eat, sleep, move, think, and live so you can reduce stress and inflammation ongoing. You need some hand-holding from someone who understands medical lingo as you navigate from medical to more natural healing methods. And you know you have the power to feel strong, healthy, and confident – living a vibrant life that helps keeps cancer in its place.
Lifestyle Makeover will help you identify your health needs after defeating cancer and use your new tools to create sustainable changes and embrace your new life. With my personalized support as a Certified Health Coach, Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner, and Nurse Assistant, we will make improvements in your lifestyle, attitude, and nutrition that improve your ability to heal. My Cancer Exercise Specialist experience will help us address lymphedema and other treatment side effects, reduce pain and improve strength and balance. You’re ready to do the work, rebuild your resilience to sickness, and discover a more holistic approach to life – with guidance from someone who’s been there.

Hey there, so nice to meet you! I'm Carissa.
I’m Carissa R. Douglas, the Owner, and CEO of A New Beginning to Wellness, and I am delighted to have you here. I struggled to overcome my own cancer and unexpected infections – against many odds – as well as feelings of loneliness afterward. Now I want to be the one by your side, guiding you through recovery and into a better life.
I know what it’s like to be scared, confused, and frustrated even though my labs indicated I was cancer free. My digestive system was a mess. My oncologist gave me a few tips on eating healthier and exercising. But I didn’t have the energy or really know how to start. It just seemed overwhelming and unrealistic at the time.
Thankfully, my personal experience as a cancer survivor gave me a profound understanding of the challenges and triumphs that survivorship involves. This inspired me to explore and pursue a different approach to cancer and health. A holistic approach addressing my body, mind, and spirit – and more specifically nutrition, exercise, lifestyle, and attitude – helped me recover and live a full life again.
Now as a Certified Health Coach, Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner, and Cancer Exercise Specialist, I’m here to guide you in your post-cancer journey toward recovering your well-being, energy, and vibrant life.
