- What we should do today to be healthy in 10 years was the main topic of an After work event
- Boryana presented her new project Re:Gena
“Health is a way of life. We should not only maintain it but also plan it”. This was the main message of Boryana Gerasimova, entrepreneur in the field of personalized medicine and speaker. She was guest to the After work event of the Council of Women in Business in Bulgaria “Health intelligence or what it means to plan our health”. During the event she also presented her new project Re:Gena.
Boryana was only 26 years old when she faced the worst diagnosis – cancer. The decease changed her life. Fortunately, she managed to fight the disease and achieve remission. But she didn’t stop to ask herself questions: what I did wrong to get cancer; how to deal with the decease and last but not least: what should I do to prevent the decease to return. Looking for answers to her questions, Boryana decided to take action in order to help not only herself but also other people.
This is how her path, dedicated to the health, began. She says the cancer divided her life into two periods – before and after the disease. “What we are doing today is crucially important for tomorrow. Do you know what to do today to be healthy in 10 or 30 years”, asked Boryana. The other important question was: do you have time schedule for eating, sports or for visiting your doctor? “It is good to develop but we should first think about ourselves and then about others. Health care is not a single act but a process”, said Boryana Gerasimova.
For her health intelligence is the ability to collect information to help us make better decisions about our health. “We have to be experts on our health – to know what works and what does not”, said Boryana. She outlined the stages of preparing our personal health plan – intention, goal setting, information gathering, planning, building habits and regular renewal of the plan according to our needs.
While fighting cancer, Boryana got familiar with the genetic research and came to the conclusion that people could successfully plan their health through DNA analysis. The new project of Boryana, called Re:Gena, is dedicated to this mission. “Re:Gena means to change your life”, she said. Boryana presented her new company, which provides different types of medical consultations.
