How Nutritional Therapy can support you:

We offer a complimentary approach to traditional cancer therapies that is quite different than mainstream conventional care. Traditional cancer treatment often consists of surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, immunotherapy and targeted therapies, with very little focus on changing the root causes of why the cancer was able to grow and proliferate in the first place. In addition to traditional cancer care, there is great benefit to taking a very close look at all of the contributing factors that may have led to this diagnosis. In our work together, we look at cancer through a holistic, systems-based lens that examines the terrain of your body and how it might contribute to a current or future cancer diagnosis. What does this mean?

Your body is made up of systems. These systems are not isolated from other systems in the body. We will deeply explore these systems as well as your diet, lifestyle and health. Think of your body as a garden. What terrain conditions do you find there? Does it have the elements needed to thrive or are there factors that are in a state of imbalance? These are the questions that we will ask about your body and your lifestyle.  Whether you have a cancer diagnosis or just simply seek to prevent cancer from occurring in the future, we will take a deep look at 10 terrain elements in your body that have been shown to contribute to cancer proliferation. If one or more of these systems of your body is out of balance, it can lead to a terrain that allows cancer to grow.

It is our goal to optimize your bio-individual status of all of these terrain systems so that we can make your terrain inhospitable to cancer.  Our exploration of these 10 categories of terrain imbalances will lead us to an understanding of the root causes for cancer. Each person, even if they possess the same type of cancer, will have different root causes. Once we identify the terrain imbalances, we will then have a roadmap of how to bring each terrain disruption and your body back into balance.

 

There are 5 steps we take to improve terrain. These include the elimination of terrain disruptors, nutritional strategies that improve terrain, targeted supplementation, lifestyle changes like appropriate exercise and stress reduction, and potentially additional supportive therapies to bring better balance to the terrain. 

By addressing each terrain disruption, we will improve your health and remove the triggers that can lead to cancer proliferation and metastasis. This strategy will also improve the effectiveness and tolerability of traditional cancer therapies.
