Today on the show we welcome Dr. Nasha Winters and Jess Higgins Kelley, who collaborated on a book called The Metabolic Approach to Cancer. Jess is a Master Nutrition Therapist, consultant, teacher, writer, and nutrition education program developer. As an Oncology Nutrition Specialist for over a decade, Jess has extensive experience working with cancer clients from around the globe. Dr. Nasha has been working in the healthcare industry for 25 years. She’s a nationally board-certified naturopathic doctor, licensed acupuncturist, a practitioner of oriental medicine, and she’s a fellow of the American Board of Naturopathic Oncology. She has an incredible story: she was motivated in this area by a terminal cancer diagnosis 25 years ago, where she was given months to live. 

Today she lectures all over the world, and among many other things she discusses the benefits of whole foods and nutrient-dense therapeutic ketogenic diets for cancer patients. This is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what we cover in this interview. We also discuss the keto-at-all-costs diet, deep nutrition, fasting, sweating, the connection between sugar and cancer, adapting our diet to seasonal changes, and how we can address the unseen toxins prevalent in modern life today. The Metabolic Approach to Cancer is not just a diet book. It’s a guide to the bio-chemical science of nutrition therapy, and a big part of this book, and of our discussion here today, is patient empowerment. By the end of this episode, you will feel inspired to start learning more about your body, to get back into your body, to stand up for your body, and to no longer keep viewing it as your enemy. If you are a cancer survivor, someone who is currently undergoing cancer treatment, or are wanting to improve your health and work to prevent cancer—then this is definitely an episode you don’t want to miss.
