The Metabolic Approach to Cancer: Integrating Deep Nutrition, the Ketogenic Diet, and Nontoxic Bio-Individualized Therapies
When Dr. Holly was first diagnosed with breast cancer, she was pretty underwhelmed with her care. Cancer is a complex disease, and she thought there was more she could do to help her body than just take pills. It was then she remembered the work fof today's guest (who has been on the podcast before!) and called her up.

The world needs more qualified practitioners to help support clients/patients improve quality and quantity of life using dietary therapies, nutrition interventions, and lifestyle modifications. This continuing education certification program will not only enhance your practice, it also encourages students to focus on their own health. Reducing future cancer risk starts with what we eat today.
