Life & Beauty Expert And 'ELLEN' Favorite Makes Life-Saving Discovery Thanks To Arivale
SEATTLE, Nov. 26, 2018
SEATTLE, Nov. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Arivale, a Scientific Wellness® company that uses Registered Dietitians as coaches to help members manage their wellness, partners with Hallmark Channel and ELLEN contributor Kym Douglas and non-profit Twist Out Cancerto support cancer survivors and their loved ones.
Earlier this year, Kym was leading a busy life, focusing on her family and giving back. Like many of us, Kym let her own health get pushed to the back burner. Thankfully, Kym started the Arivale program, which provides one-on-one health coaching from Registered Dietitians, plus actionable insights based on an individual's genetic predispositions. As part of an action plan to improve her overall health, Kym's Arivale Coach, Ginger, recommended she schedule a long overdue mammogram with her physician.
After Coach Ginger convinced Kym to make time for a checkup with her doctor, Kym's physician diagnosed her with stage three breast cancer. Kym underwent a double mastectomy to save her life.
"Kym hadn't been to the doctor in three years when I first met her," says Ginger Hultin, MS, RDN, CSO, and Arivale Coach. "She knew she needed a mammogram, but she was afraid. I encouraged her and wouldn't take 'no' for an answer."
In addition to encouraging its members to have regular checkups with their physician, Arivale uses 3,000 gene variants and over 40 blood markers to reveal members' unique predispositions and needs for weight loss, exercise, diet, heart health, sleep, inflammation, and more. An in-depth phone consultation with an Arivale Coach – a registered dietitian with 200 additional hours of training in genetics and behavior-change science – provides an explanation of their data and a realistic action plan to take control of their health. Members get a one-on-one relationship with an expert willing to go the extra mile to build a personalized plan that works for them. An easy-to-navigate app and real-time texting empower men and women to put their health first, despite a jam-packed schedule.
"I urge all women, no matter how busy you are, to take the time to take care of your health," says Kym. "For most of us, that means finding support. For me, it was Ginger and Arivale."
