Top 10 Myths About Mold

    We’re all affected by cancer — directly or indirectly. But why is it so prevalent these days? And what can we do about it?

    We can begin by discerning fact from fiction. I’d like to address some of the common myths I regularly hear and discuss some more recent findings about cancer.

    Cancer Myths


    Ultimately, cancer is a metabolic dysregulation. To prevent this loss of regulation, we have to go back to the root cause. In our clinic, we work with patients to prevent cancer, as well as with those who have been diagnosed to better understand the root cause and help prevent a recurrence.

    In 1900, 1 out of 100 people got cancer. Let’s work toward getting back to those kinds of numbers.

    If you’d like to learn more as you progress on your health journey, I’d suggest starting with the recommended reading list on our website. Our goal is to provide you with the best information we can to help you on your path forward to wellness and live the best life you can live.

    The Metabolic Approach to Cancer

    Integrating Deep Nutrition, the Ketogenic Diet, and Nontoxic Bio-Individualized Therapies
    Dr. Nasha Winters ND, FABNO, LAc, Diplom and Jess Higgins Kelley MNT

    “Since the beginning of the 20th 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 audiobook 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 10 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 has 10 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, nontoxic 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).” Publisher’s Summary
