100% of humans are touched by cancer every year. Either yourself or a friend or family member have been impacted by this often deadly disease.

And as we all well know, a diagnosis with the deadly C word can be one of the most terrifying and difficult journey’s anyone can go through.

Is it possible to heal from cancer?

Does sugar actually feed cancer?

What’s the best diet when fighting cancer?

And even more importantly, what do oncologists know (or not know) about helping the body heal from this disease?

Join me with today’s guest and founder of the Oncology Nutrition Institute – Jess Higgins Kelley for an eye opening and heart opening conversation about how we can heal our bodies by getting out of our own way!

Jess is an internationally recognized and award-winning journalist, nutrition therapist, and public health educator. She is the best-selling co-author of the ground-breaking book The Metabolic Approach to Cancer: Integrating Deep Nutrition, the Ketogenic Diet, and Nontoxic Bio-Individualized Therapies. In addition to English, the book has been translated into five other languages and is found on shelves worldwide in clinics and hospitals utilizing metabolic oncology nutrition.

In 2010 Jess graduated as a Master Nutrition Therapist from the Nutrition Therapy Institute in Denver, Colorado. She has since worked with hundreds of clients in her general nutrition practice, where she specializes in oncology. She was asked back to the Nutrition Therapy Institute to instruct Clinical Nutrition, Digestion and Detox, Food Quality, and several other courses from 2011 to 2016.

With her teaching and curriculum development experience, she went on to create the Oncology Nutrition Institute where she is currently the Director of the 250-Hour Oncology Nutrition Consulting certification program that trains qualified nutrition and medical professionals worldwide. Jess is a former Hurricane Island Outward Bound Instructor, licensed sea captain, trail runner, and an avid organic gardener.
