BD Now! 040 Dr Nasha Winters “The Metabolic Approach to Cancer”

Cancer rates have increased exponentially since the beginning of the twentieth century—now affecting almost 50 percent of the American population. Yet conventional treatment continues to rely on chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation to attack cancer cells even though research has repeatedly shown that 95 percent of cancer cases are directly
linked to diet and lifestyle.*

It’s time for a new approach.

The Metabolic Approach to Cancer: Integrating Deep Nutrition, the Ketogenic Diet, and Nontoxic Bio-Individualized Therapies
by Dr. Nasha Winters & Jess Higgins Kelley, foreword by Kelly Turner
Pub Date: June 6, 2017

The Metabolic Approach to Cancer, by leading integrative oncologist Dr. Nasha Winters and nutrition therapist Jess Higgins Kelley, is the first book to offer a comprehensive, nutrition-focused approach to managing cancer. The goal of their “Optimal Terrain Ten Protocol” is to create an inhospitable environment for cancer cell growth while simultaneously removing the diet and lifestyle factors that provoke it.

The Terrain Ten, as listed below, are our human elements that require balance in order to halt and prevent the cancer process. Each one is illuminated as it relates to cancer management, then prescribed a heavily researched and
tested, non-toxic and metabolic therapy.

1. Genetic, epigenetic, and nutrigenomic modifications
2. Blood sugar balance
3. Toxin exposure management
4. Repopulating and balancing the microbiome
5. Immune system maximization
6. Modulating inflammation and oxidative stress
7. Enhancing blood circulation
8. Establishing hormone balance
9. Recalibrating stress levels
10. Enhancing mental and emotional well-being

Through addressing these ten root causes of cancer and approaching the disease from a nutrition-focused standpoint, Winters and Kelley hope to empower both patients and physicians to slow cancer’s endemic spread and live optimized lives.

  1. Hi Allen, your show is awesome, as are you. I would love to hear about ways to prevent getting cancer in the first place. I’m an organic orchardist in NW NJ. Any chance of getting Hugh Lovel back? Amazing insights. Dan Kittredge who leads the bionutrient food association is much aligned with your world, and would be an interesting interview. Thanks for all the time it must take to make a podcast. Be well, Pete Tischler

    1. Thanks for taking the time to let us know what you’d like to hear from Dr Nasha next week! I appreciate your appreciation of what we are doing here. I hope you enjoyed the Micheal Phillips interview. (What a wonderful horticulturist and human being!) You’re right, I should check in with Hugh again some time soon. Biodynamic great Glen Atkinson will be on this podcast again in a couple of weeks, too!

      Would love to hear more from you, Peter!


  2. Just finished bingeing on the latest four BDNOW recordings and as always I have learned so much about a variety of topics. I definitely have my reading cut out for me. Thanks Allan and Maura for putting together such a great podcast!
