"In The Metabolic Approach to Cancer, Dr. Nasha Winters and nutritionist Jess Higgins Kelley expose the inadequacies inherent in the entrenched model of conventional cancer care. Looking beyond the manifestations of a body out of balance, they open the reader's eyes to the underlying epigenetic changes that contribute to the development and progression of this devastating disease. Also included here is a set of tools--including nutrition, lifestyle, and metabolic therapies--that address the root cause of the problem. This integrated approach offers an opportunity to bring body and mind back into balance."--Miriam Kalamian, author of Keto for Cancer "The Metabolic Approach to Cancer is the book I have been yearning for since my cancer diagnosis in 1989. I have been managing my cancer with nutrition and lifestyle, but my research has led to confusing and sometimes contradictory information. This book has everything I need to know in one place. I feel empowered with knowledge about what I can do and why it will make a difference. I want everyone touched by cancer to read this book."--Jan Adrian, MSW, founder and director, Healing Journeys "The Metabolic Approach to Cancer explains why medicine has failed to find a single cure for cancer. Read this important book to learn how cancer is an environmental, metabolic disease with many small causes that stack up and what you can do to prevent or even reverse it. Taking control of your environment and your food gives you control over cancer! You'll never look at sugar the same way again."--Dave Asprey, New York Times bestselling author of The Bulletproof Diet; creator, Bulletproof Coffee "The Metabolic Approach to Cancer is a terrific resource for anyone interested in treating cancer with natural therapies. This book is delightful and full of valuable information."--Ann Fonfa, president, Annie Appleseed Project "Dr. Nasha Winters and Jess Higgins Kelley have written an important book, The Metabolic Approach to Cancer, that can help cancer patients better manage their disease. Most cancers, regardless of cell or tissue origin, are now recognized as a single metabolic disease that feeds on fermentable fuels like the sugar glucose and the amino acid glutamine. Winters and Kelley provide cancer patients with logical, nontoxic, therapeutic strategies for starving cancer cells of their prime fuels while enhancing overall patient health. This book will be a valuable resource for all cancer patients and their oncologists."--Thomas N. Seyfried, PhD, author of Cancer as a Metabolic Disease "The Metabolic Approach to Cancer is a powerhouse of detailed information on how to prevent, manage, and treat cancer. How refreshing to see such a compilation of insight, structure, and sweeping scope, one that centers on the health of the entire individual, not just killing cancer cells alone. It is written in an intimate conversation style that comes from decades of deep personal experience, research, and genuine passion. It's time to welcome a new gem to the universe of books on cancer."--Travis Christofferson, author of Tripping over the Truth
