A Holistic Approach to Reducing Cancer Risk

One of the reasons I decided to become a holistic nutritionist was because my father was diagnosed with cancer in 2009. The other reason was to learn how to manage my own diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.

This perhaps isn’t the most uplifting video I’ve ever made but every June I try to make one meaningful post about cancer prevention. June is not only Father’s Day, but my late father’s birthday month as well. Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful dads out there! I’m missing mine a great deal right now.

The development and progression of cancer depends upon whether early cancer growth is given the right conditions to prosper and grow. Although It’s difficult to prove that certain foods cause cancer, studies have found that specific types of food and cooking methods may increase the likelihood of developing cancer. Studies also suggest that certain lifestyle habits could prevent 30–50% of all cancers.
