Kick Cancer’s Ass with Keto: Dr. Nasha Winters #528

Kick Cancer’s Ass with Keto: Dr. Nasha Winters #528

In this episode, I am talking with a nationally board certified naturopathic doctor, a fellow of the American Board of Naturopathic Oncology, and someone who also studied and is licensed in both acupuncture and Oriental medicine. I’m talking about none other than Dr. Nasha Winters.

Dr. Winters is the bestselling author of The Metabolic Approach to Cancer, which is definitely worth reading, even if you don’t have cancer. Nasha is based in Durango, Colorado and is the former CEO of Optimal Terrain Consulting, where she taught the practice of highly personalized integrative oncology care.

The reason Dr. Winters is on the podcast is to talk about ketones and metabolism, which is a significant part of her practice. Funny enough, all of us have metabolisms, so you will likely find this to be a highly relevant episode.
