Cancer Control Pathways

Get Nourished

Foundational nutrition for cancer prevention starts with nutrient-dense foods, in the right amounts, so that our cells can function correctly. Learn the importance of timing your food intake, which meal patterns most effectively fight cancer and more.

Live & Think Clean

Lifestyle choices impact our ability to prevent cancer by controlling the breakdown of cellular DNA. Learn how much alcohol is too much, the best kind of exercise based on your health goals, and how much sleep is optimal for fighting cancer.

Cleanse Cells

Cancer control involves adding foods or nutrients that repair and replenish and avoiding foods that are harmful to our cells. Unfortunately, in today’s world, it can be tough to avoid all of the toxins! Learn which foods help our cells convert and remove toxic chemicals out of the body.

Protect Cells

When DNA is damaged, and repair is unsuccessful, the cancer process takes off. Learn about the most important, naturally occurring cell protectors (antioxidants) found in foods. You’ll get a prioritized plan of which plants offer you the most protection based on your health goals.

Harmonize Hormones

Maintaining hormonal balance is a critical factor in preventing hormone-sensitive cancers like breast or prostate cancer. Learn how to create more balance with certain nutrition and lifestyle modifications that limit exposure to dietary hormones and hormone-disrupting chemicals.

Strengthen Immunity

The immune system protects the body against illness and infection caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. Learn which foods significantly support your immune system and protect against cancer.

Fight Inflammation

Chronic inflammation may be caused by infections that linger, irregular immune system reactions to normal tissues, or conditions like allergies, prolonged stress and obesity. Learn about which foods contribute to, and diminish, chronic inflammation that can cause DNA damage and lead to cancer.

Balance Blood Sugar

Carbohydrate-containing foods, especially those made with simple sugars and refined flour, increase blood sugar levels, prompting the body to produce insulin. Elevated insulin levels have a strong association with obesity-related cancers. Learn which foods and nutrients are involved in blood sugar response.

Stop The Spread

Learn about the dietary components found in beverages or foods that can stop cancer cells from developing a blood supply so they can’t grow and spread to other parts of the body. This action is called anti-angiogenesis, or more simply put, anti-“spreadability”.

Build a Better Microbiome

Bacteria found in the gut can manipulate different cancer signaling pathways and contribute to an unhealthy “oncobiome”. Learn how to combine pre- and pro-biotics to potentiate your gut health.

Get Supplement Savvy

Every year, Americans spend over $35 billion on vitamins, minerals, botanicals, and various other supplements. Learn about the dosage and safety of certain dietary supplements linked to your health goals.
