In fact, nutritional techniques can be applied to any chronic illness. Diet and lifestyle can impact resilience and recovery.
Your Terrain
Your body must have some damage that made it susceptible to cancer or chronic illness. Looking at the terrain of your life can help find areas to heal.
  • Epigenetics determine your genetic qualities before you are born. It is the blueprint for the “tree” you become in life. You can manipulate parts of your blueprint.
  • The microbiome is like the soil for your tree. It helps your tree grow so you need to feed it well. The mental and emotional aspects compose your trunk.
  • The trunk connects you to the soil. Traumas and adverse childhood events can impact your health in adulthood.
  • Branches are comprised of blood sugar, metabolism, hormones, circulation, toxic exposure, circadian rhythm, stress response and overall immune function.
Ketogenic Diet
The ketogenic diet is high in fat and low in carbohydrates. Our bodies switch from burning glucose for fuel to producing and burning ketones. Cancer cells don’t have the same metabolic flexibility to run off ketones. Healthy fats like nuts, fish and avocados are staples of the ketogenic diet.
Cancer treatments like chemotherapy seem to be more successful when one follows the ketogenic diet.
Listen as Dr. Nasha Winters and Jess Kelly, MNT, join Dr. Holly Lucille to discuss how you can improve your health to ward off and recover from cancer and other chronic illnesses.
