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 inspires through her writing and speaking. She has spoken to a wide variety of audiences hosted by a diverse set of organizations across the globe and currently shares her deep knowledge of integrative medicine to prevent chronic illness and improve chronic disease outcomes. Kathy’s passion for using an integrative approach to health care grew from her own battle with two rare and aggressive cancers. She’s chronicled her story in her second book E.A.T. An Unconventional Decade In The Life Of A Cancer Patient.
Kathy has been a long-time advocate for living clean and executive produced the Emmy award winning documentary Worth Fighting For. Today, she is a best selling author, advocate for change and speaks on topics such as using food as medicine, being your own best advocate, engaging chemical-free, stress-relieving practices and employing energy healing modalities to transform into the best version of ourselves.
Kathy looks forward to the opportunity to work with your group.
Kathy discovered the power of Reiki in 2006 during her battle with head and neck cancer. Unsure on 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. She enjoys sharing reiki with others and especially relishes being a part of the healing process.
Reiki or universal life energy activates an individual’s natural healing abilities to balance body, mind and spirit in a structured way through light touch and deep compassion to restore physical, emotional and spiritual health.
