Co-author of The Metabolic Approach to Cancer: Integrating Deep Nutrition, the Ketogenic Diet, and Nontoxic Bio-Individualized Therapies
People don’t just “Get Cancer” because of genes or by accident as the medical model researches, preaches and teaches world wide.
Since the beginning of the twentieth century, cancer rates have increased exponentially―now affecting almost 50 percent of the American population. Conventional treatment continues to rely on chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation to attack cancer cells. Yet research has repeatedly shown that 95 percent of cancer cases are directly linked to diet and lifestyle. The Metabolic Approach to Cancer is the book we have been waiting for―it offers an innovative, metabolic-focused nutrition protocol that actually works. Naturopathic, integrative oncologist and cancer survivor Dr. Nasha Winters and nutrition therapist Jess Higgins Kelley have identified the ten key elements of a person’s “terrain” (think of it as a topographical map of our body) that are crucial to preventing and managing cancer. Each of the terrain ten elements―including epigenetics, the microbiome, the immune system, toxin exposures, and blood sugar balance―is illuminated as it relates to the cancer process, then given a heavily researched and tested, non-toxic and metabolic, focused nutrition prescription.
The metabolic theory of cancer―that cancer is fueled by high carbohydrate diets, not “bad” genetics―was introduced by Nobel Prize-laureate and scientist Otto Warburg in 1931. It has been largely disregarded by conventional oncology ever since. But this theory is resurging as a result of research showing incredible clinical outcomes when cancer cells are deprived of their primary fuel source (glucose). The ketogenic diet―which relies on the body’s production of ketones as fuel―is the centerpiece of The Metabolic Approach to Cancer. Further, Winters and Kelley explain how to harness the anticancer potential of phytonutrients abundant in low-glycemic plant and animal foods to address the 10 hallmarks of cancer―an approach Western medicine does with drug based therapies.
Their optimized, genetically-tuned diet shuns grains, legumes, sugar, genetically modified foods, pesticides, and synthetic ingredients while emphasizing whole, wild, local, organic, fermented, heirloom, and low-glycemic foods and herbs. Other components of their approach include harm-reductive herbal therapies like mistletoe (considered the original immunotherapy and common in European cancer care centers) and cannabinoids (which shrink tumors and increase quality of life, yet are illegal in more than half of the United States). Through addressing the ten root causes of cancer and approaching the disease from a nutrition-focused standpoint, we can slow cancer’s endemic spread and live optimized lives.
DR. NASHA WINTERS, ND, FABNO, is a sought-after luminary and a global healthcare authority in integrative cancer research and consults with physicians around the world. She bridges ancient therapies with advancements in modern medicine in the digital era. Her focus has always been to seek integrative modalities for treating cancer, in addition to or in lieu of conventional standard of care in order to enhance outcomes and offer hope in a dismal prognosis.
-It appears Rudolf Steiner was very interested and used mistletoe for Cancer healing long ago
-The amount of “Cancer” presented in U.S. since 1970 is extraordinary and can only be to environmental factors from stress, to diet, to chemicals. People don’t “Get Cancer” by accident or genes as the medical model preaches.
-There’s never going to be a cure for cancer because the cure is in the cause
-The cancer cells actually affect the terrain, the microbiome of the body from mouth to toes
-Chemicals in the food, in the water, and in the air are a big factor in the plethora of Cancer in our culture.
-The chemicals in mattresses, cars, clothing and furniture is a part of the Cancer phenomenon
-All these chemicals are endocrine disruptors and are part of the cause
-Sixty thousand new chemicals have been added to the milieu out there since 1960. And these chemicals have never had real, solid studies completed on the long term affect on life.
-Bifidos bacteria is a key player in a health microbiome in the gut
-Detoxing on going is essential to keep the mitochondria happy and snappy
-Certainly a plant based diet is ideal says Dr. Watson, with organic meat, fish, dairy and minimal carbs to round things out
-The important ingredient is a whole food based diet, that is all organic
-There is a urine test one can do to test for glyphosates in the body
-High CBD oil is showing to very promising in all sorts of Cancer healing

This was a fantastic interview! Patrick does such a good job interviewing people. Learned so much on what to do for our health, especially cancer. Dr. Nasha is a treasure whom I hope you have on again. We are all facing the possibility of getting cancer. I plan on getting her book and listening again to the interview and sending an email to all my friends with the link to listen to this interview>
