Metabolic Approach to Cancer, The
Cancer rates have increased exponentially since the beginning of the 20th century — now affecting almost 50 percent of the American population. Yet conventional treatment continues to rely on chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation, despite research that has repeatedly shown 95 percent of cancer cases are directly related to diet and lifestyle.
The Metabolic Approach to Cancer is the first book to offer a comprehensive, nutrition-focused protocol to managing cancer. Naturopathic, integrative oncologist and cancer survivor Dr. Nasha Winters and nutrition therapist Jess Higgins Kelley identify the ten key elements of a person's terrain — including the microbiome, the immune system, and blood sugar balance — as they relate to the cancer process, and they prescribe a heavily researched, tested, and nontoxic metabolic therapeutic approach that encompasses the ketogenic diet, fasting, specific phytonutrients, herbal treatments, and more. The Optimal Terrain Ten Protocol is a clear plan that will empower both patients and physicians to slow cancer's endemic spread and live optimized lives.
