Vishal Gondal, Founder and CEO GOQii said, “One in 13 cancer patients in the world is an Indian. The biggest challenge faced in India today is not the treatment of cancer but preventing relapses or recurrence through lifestyle management. This is exactly what we aim to provide through our platform. Technology can make good health accessible in a seamless manner across large sections of the society. With this, we bring to Cancer Patients, an integrative lifestyle and healing program that is designed by Luke and his team of highly trained health coaches & other professionals.”
GOQii will tap into Luke’s specialization and experience in treating cancer patients across the globe. He has been instrumental in helping patients into remission and keeping them there, and using nutrition and holistic lifestyle to reduce and manage the collateral damage of conventional treatments and medication. He is involved in nutrition and micro nutrition for the prevention and healing of cancer and is also involved in pain management that comes along with the disease.
“The first step to beating any form of cancer is maintaining a positive outlook to life and having an indomitable will to live. I believe in lifestyle changes and help train people to make these 'shifts'. I have seen that a combination of natural food with change in lifestyle helps alleviate medical conditions. The Holistic Model of Luke Coutinho works on addressing the root cause and revolves around a model of balanced nutrition, adequate exercise and movement, quality sleep and emotional detoxification. Incremental lifestyle changes have the capability to transform people’s lives and my program inculcates such incremental changes that will help cancer patients as well,” said Luke Coutinho, Integrative Medicine and Lifestyle Expert and Master Coach GOQii.
Currently, patients suffer from the side effects of aggressive treatments. Luke Coutinho believes that side effects must be effectively managed to prevent further collateral damage to organ health and immunity. “Immunity cannot be compromised at any cost. This cancer care program will help patients better manage their side effects and boost immunity with a focus on holistic healing and will not be diet or calorie based but with a focus on a powerful drug called Lifestyle. I believe this collaboration will go a long way in extending affordable cancer care to people worldwide. We believe in an integrative approach with conventional medicine and lifestyle. Our interest is the quality of life and health for all,” Luke added.
The cancer care service is not a replacement for a regular doctor or conventional treatment and does not apply to any emergency medical or chronic situations. The services will be available on the GOQii platform from August 2018 at a price point starting from Rs 11,999 per year.
