“A metabolic, deep nutrition, and nontoxic approach is the answer to cancer prevention and management.” “We must focus on the 90–95 percent of cancers that are caused by the standard American diet and exposure to environmental toxins”.

Dr. Nasha Winters

The Core of The Metabolic Approach


1. Genetic, epigenetic, and nutrigenomic
2. Blood sugar balance
3. Toxic burden management
4. Rebalance the Microbiome
5. Maximize the Immune System 
6. Reduce Inflammation, oxidative stress
7. Enhance blood circulation 
8. Hormone balance
9. Recalibrate stress levels and sleep
10. Enhance mental and emotional well-being

What, Why, How

Human cells have mitochondria and when they go awry in response to modern dietary and environmental influences, they become sick, inflamed, and cancerous.  To eliminate the cancerous cells we must fix the mitochondria to heal the body.  Identifying what is causing the body to cancer, treating the terrain, the “soil” that contributed to the cancer growth, is much more effective than simply burning, cutting or poisoning the tumor in hopes that the cancer goes away.  It’s about treating the patient, strengthening the terrain, and not just focusing on the tumor. An integrative approach, combining traditional with metabolic, works best, not only to improve outcome, but to improve the side effects of conventional treatment. 

In 2014 a study of 70 FDA approved chemotherapy agents found the cancer treatments extended life by an avg of only 2.1 months 


The Metabolic Approach:

  • What caused the cancer to grow
  • What about this person is sick 
  • Individualized approach
  • Therapies 
  • Addressing the “Why”, “What” and “How”
  • Improving quality of life
  • Reducing mortality rates 


The current conventional cancer care system of diagnosis and treatment can be confusing, cold, scary and impossible to navigate. I can help to reduce this overwhelm, I will advocate for informed decision making, appropriate treatment and testing, sharing in the burden on self, family and physician.  The metabolic and terrain approach to cancer prevention and cancer therapy is to strengthen the body, not simply to tear it down and “kill” the cancer. 


“Cancer is a metabolic, environmental, and emotional disease. It’s not just a tumor; it signifies correctable imbalances that occur inside and outside our body. It is time for some real hope and to disarm the most deadly disease of modern times. How? With the metabolic approach to cancer.”
