About the guest: Juni Bucher
After witnessing the power of nutrition in her own health battles with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Breast Cancer, Juni decided to follow her passion and became certified in Nutritional Therapy so she could assist others in finding joy in their bodies again. She also completed formal meditation education and certification through Unplug meditation studio to further assist clients and believes that mindfulness is a key ingredient in all health journeys.
By taking a holistic approach to health, Juni utilizes nutrition, supplementation, and stress management assessments to determine where to prioritize efforts. She then works collaboratively with her clients to create a wellness plan that will create more ease in their lives so that they see long-lasting results.
As we nurture the body’s instinctual desire to thrive, we create habits that are easy to stick with because we experience the benefits consistently and they perpetuate further success.
Juni specializes in mid-life hormone balance, breast cancer treatment support, and survivorship. She is also the host of the podcast, Tata, Cancer! which focuses on all aspects of healing after being diagnosed with breast cancer.
