Episode Description for “The Metabolic Approach to Cancer“
After her own terminal diagnosis of cancer at age 19, Nasha Winters decided to take a more natural approach to treatment. Now, years later, she is helping others with their cancer diagnosis by integrating nutrition, and lifestyle approaches.
Dr. Risk’s Thoughts
I understand Dr. Winters’ passion for what she does, as it is similar to mine. Being affected by an illness gives us great insight into how to help others. Cancer is a scary word to a lot of people, and it is growing. Since we perceive to have little understanding of it, and there has been little change to treatments in many years, it is encouraging to know that we can prevent this outcome by taking care of ourselves. Not just for the prevention of cancer, but for the prevention of all diseases I believe we should embrace a culture of wellness. Diet and other lifestyle changes are integral to all our wellbeing.
