The story behind

Get in touch

Cancer is a dreaded disease, and sadly most of us will at some stage be directly or indirectly affected by it. A diagnosis invariably causes a ripple effect, striking fear not only into those just diagnosed, but also to partners, family members and friends, and dealing with this fear and anxiety is hugely important. Many cancer sufferers feel disempowered, confused and afraid of what lies ahead. Our medical system brilliantly provides excellent medical solutions, with chemotherapy, radiation therapy or surgery, but the results would perhaps be even more impactful if we addressed more than just the physical manifestation of the cancer, and rather also dealt with the stress and emotional devastation it leaves in its wake. So let’s use all the weapons in our arsenal – meditation, mindfulness, nutrition, natural therapies; after all we are at our most powerful when we all work together. 

We help you diminish and manage cancer treatment side effects

Our medical system brilliantly provides excellent medical solutions, with chemotherapy, radiation therapy or surgery. However, many of these treatments can have severe side effects. Chemotherapy can cause a range of side effects such as fatigue, nausea, pain or soreness, changes to the skin, diarrhoea, weight gain or weight loss, hair loss, changes to your libido, just to name a few.

At Hearty Center our team of wellness experts combine all their knowledge to provide you with the necessary care, nutrition and natural treatments to reduce and manage the cancer treatment side effects..

Meet the Founder

Having suffered from breast, uterus, and thyroid cancer for over 10 years, Thu Le used her mind, body, and soul to give her the boost she needed to win her battle. After discovering the success of her methods, Thu Le set out to study and research various dietary and spiritual treatments to help cancer sufferers feel nourished and energised. Thu Le has an outstanding array of 26 diplomas, degrees, and certificates obtained in Australia, Netherlands, UK, USA and Vietnam, which have led her to the foundation of the Hearty Center – a safe retreat for cancer sufferers located in Blue Mountains – a region that offers a unique relaxing and nurturing environment for the mind, body, and spirit.

My health and happiness are dependent on nurturing and balancing the needs of my body, mind and spirit. It is now my passion to share my journey with others to help them discover how their true balance can be achieved.
