How we work

We believe that every individual is a unique biological being.  With that in mind, we take a look at who you are, what you eat, how you live your life, and what your blood (and urine) may say about you.  Knowing this can help us tailor a nutritional program that supports the specific needs you have at the beginning, middle and end of your cancer journey, and all points in between.  It also helps us and you to understand what your individual risk factors for recurrence may or may not be, so that we can get busy emphasizing a risk deterrence strategy that takes these factors into account.  For example, we may look at:

-glucose, weight and insulin status

-inflammation status

-nutrient sufficiency

-drug/nutrient interactions

-immune health –

-hormonal balance

-your treatment side effect profile (if undergoing conventional treatment)

-other markers appropriate to your situation
