Publisher's Summary

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 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).

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Great info (very dense), lots of science - NO PDF!

I've been reading lots of books on health, biohacking, cancer prevention, and such every since my prostate cancer diagnosis and surgery 2 years ago. This book brought all that I have read so far into one unified approach that makes sense. There is a TON of information in the book and I'll be re-reading it (likely several times). Prostate cancer runs in my family (I'm 3rd generation with it), and I am committed to my son NOT being generation 4. My one complaint is a BIG one. The author constantly refers to "the PDF supplement" which sounds like it is chock full of great info. For some reason, my audible library does not show me a PDF for this book. I see PDFs for many of my other books and have had no trouble downloading them, but this one is simply not there.

"Finding your hope in defeating the Cancer within

I thoroughly enjoyed the information contained within this book. Although there will be, on many occasions ,(as I read), moments of frustration and other emotions because of the new insights that will cause them. Above all else I sensed a renewed hope coupled with a "proven battle plan ", for fighting cancer both now and in the future for yourself as well as a loved one, or someone you might know. The narrator was excellent too.

Packed full of good information

This book brings together a lot of other writings I have seen about how nutrition affects cancer. The author seems to have a real depth of knowledge about food, nutrition, and their relation to disease. Because she herself had advanced cancer at a young age, and is healthy decades later adds to her credibility.

Very helpful and informative

This Audio book (Metabolic Approach to Cancer) has made me more informed and educative about what I can do and will do to help me as I walk through recovery from my myeloma diagnosis. I now know the importance Nutrition and Diet; and the benefits of Ketogenic diet; need to plan to enable me succeed and put my plan in action. Life changes that may look difficult I believe will be doable so I can come out sharing my recovery story with my friends and family and creating an awareness of the need to eat healthy and make life choices that will be beneficial as aging sets in. My journey began on March 28, 2019 but I decided to seek a second opinion and thank God I did. I have two more cycles to complete 8cycles of chemotherapy before bone marrow transplant. This healthy tips will help me maintain and work hard towards attaining a healthy weight and have peace as I put performance to action by making proper nutrition choices and staying disciplined and committed. Thank you Dr winters. Your experience is helpful. Goodluck with the future. I’ll recommend this book to my co-patients when the opportunity presents. Thx
