Kathy Mydlach Bero is an author, speaker, reiki master, and certified integrative health & cancer coach.

Kathy spent 18 years as an advocate for ecosystem protection and traveled extensively teaching leadership skills to women around the world before settling with her family on a 60-acre farm.

In 2005, Kathy’s idyllic rural lifestyle was turned upside down with her diagnosis of two rare and late-stage cancers. Conventional cancer treatments challenged her physical strength as they pushed her dangerously close to death. Ultimately, she was forced to evolve into a powerful self-advocate that unconventionally engaged her innate abilities to heal.


It is her steadfast belief that true health care reform starts with clean, high quality food together with energy healing modalities that deepen our spiritual connection to not only improve the quality of our lives but prevent disease, improve disease outcomes and prevent recurrence. 

NuGenesis closed its doors in 2016 after area communities embraced and continue to embrace the principles of using food as medicine. Today, NuGenesis is no longer a unique concept and stands as just one model for communities across the globe.

Kathy Mydlach Bero Award-Winning Author of E.A.T. An Unconventional Decade in the Life of a Cancer Patient

E.A.T. An Unconventional Decade In The Life Of A Cancer Patient is a journal-type narrative written from the 18 journals Kathy kept during her battle with stage IV inflammatory breast cancer and a high-grade head and neck cancer. Despite taking advantage of everything her hospital had offered, Kathy’s body was failing, leaving her to live each day half dead. As she tallied the limitations of conventional medical protocols, Kathy embraced the challenge cancer had offered her and discovered she had exactly what it took to change her life and thrive cancer free. This is a manual of hope for anyone confronting serious illness or simply looking for a more proactive approach to wellness.

“When one door closes another will open, if you just turn the knob.” – Kathy Mydlach Bero

Kathy Mydlach Bero Jikiden Reiki Practitioner and Reiki Master

Reiki is a safe and gentle therapy that activates the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest) to heal the body and mind. It strengthens the flow of energy through blocked or disturbed lymph and electrical pathways in your body, decreasing pain and enhancing your natural ability to fight illness and heal. 

Kathy discovered the power of Reiki in 2006 during her battle with head and neck cancer. Unsure of what it even was, she started sessions with a western reiki master and surprised even her doctors with the obvious lack of side-effects from radiation therapy to her head. Kathy continued to use reiki to recover from cancer treatments and completed her western reiki master training in 2018 and Jikiden Reiki training in 2019. Today, she is a reiki master teacher and enjoys sharing it with others, especially relishing being a part of the healing process.
