How can you thrive in the midst of a cancer diagnosis? Dr. Nasha Winters is an integrative oncologist, naturopath, licensed acupuncturist, and one of Dr. Jockers’ favorite guests on the show! 

Dr. Winters lectures all over the world, training physicians in the application of mistletoe therapy and consulting with researchers on projects involving immune modulation and mistletoe, hypothermia, and the ketogenic diet. 

Her book, The Metabolic Approach to Cancer, offers some applicable strategies for healing cancer and in today’s episode, she and Dr. Jockers are chatting about the mindset you need to overcome the big C.  

They also share some practical tools you can apply before, during, and after your diagnosis. Plus, there’s also a great mnemonic ‘CDC’ that can help you prioritize your healthy approach.

Learn about what longevity means if you have a cancer diagnosis, and how you can improve the quality of your life and overcome this ‘era of despair’. What comes before the diagnosis – and what we can do to change the outcome. The answers lie, in part, in our metabolic approach to our health. 

If you know of anyone dealing with cancer, this is definitely the interview to share with them. Let’s dive into the show!


“Over 93% of us are walking around on this planet with dysfunction in our body that is actually contributing to poor longevity.

-Dr. Nasha Winters
