About Dr. Nasha Winters

“Dr. Nasha Winters is a global healthcare authority and best-selling

author in integrative cancer care and research consulting with physicians around the world. She has educated hundreds of professionals in the clinical use of mistletoe and has created robust educational programs for both healthcare institutions and the public on incorporating vetted integrative therapies in cancer care to enhance outcomes. Dr. Winters is currently focused on opening a comprehensive metabolic oncology hospital and research institute in the US where the best that standard of care has to offer and the most advanced integrative therapies will be offered. This facility will be in a residential setting on a gorgeous campus against a backdrop of regenerative farming, EMF mitigation and retreat.”


“In a world where cancer diagnosis are expected to double by 2030 per the World Health Organization with no significant change in survival, the only real chance we have is prevention and precision medicine. We have spent the last 50 years focusing on the genome when we have known for the past 100 years that the microenvironment may hold the key to prevention and cure. We aim to treat the terrain, not just the tumor. Leaving no stone unturned, utilizing the best of provocative testing, genomics, molecular profiles, laboratory evaluation and truly individualized assessment, we can breathe new life into a death sentence.“

Episode Highlights with Dr. Nasha Winters

Dr. Nasha Winters:

  • Book: A Metabolic Approach to Cancer

    • Retreats would show cancer in a very different light​

      • Co-author Jess Kelley (also author of ​Bioregulatory Medicine: An Innovative Holistic Approach to Self-Healing)

      • Labs checked before and after​

        • Information put in a book to consolidate information​

          • Became a resource for both patients and conventional medicine​

          • Looking at the terrain changes the paradigm ​

  • Retreat: Changes outlook and behavior​:

    • Focus not on cancer: ​

      • Participants asked to name 3 things interesting to them​ aside from the cancer diagnosis

      • All food cooked on site (Steve), carbs slowly reduced to metabolic state

      • Sister-in-law (Brene Brown trained therapist) to overcome obstacles

      • Jess Kelley - nutritionist to teach the food component 

      • Taught about terrain and metrics to assess

        • How stress and diet effects the terrain​

        • Helps patients shift away from protocols and patients are pushing their doctors to change

        • Transparency is helping allopathic doctors to change and explore their beliefs

  • Training Physicians: ​The need to expand teaching to a larger group​

    • Started small and organically​

      • January 2020 trained 12 physicians with one conventional oncologist​

      • Next cohort 26 physicians with 5 oncologists

      • Waiting list for February 2021 with 58 on waiting list

  • Ketogenic Diet: Does not capture the entire picture

    • Metabolic Flexibility: we are dual hybrids meant to burn both glucose and fat

      • 70% of cancers are related to sugar intake

        • Our bodies have lost the ability to self-regulate between sugar and fat burning

          • Half the population will have diabetes in there lifetime

          • by 2030 there will be a doubling of cancer worldwide

          • In 1850 5 lbs. of sugar per person, it is now between 140 -175 lbs. per person. 

            • this weakens our mitochondria ​(in charge of our energy production and apoptosis...also fountain of youth.)

            • most illnesses are mitochondrial and metabolic in nature

      • Ketogenic diets can be achieved with:​​ 

        • Fasting, low carb, carnivore, a vegan diet, etc. ​

        • All diets need to have this in common:

          • Low carb​

          • Leafy green vegetables

          • Healthy fats

          • Proteins as a condiment

        • The more metabolically flexible, the wider rang of options available​

        • The 10 hallmarks of cancer are addressed through a ketogenic diet no matter the approach to achieve it

        • Puts pressure on the system to be responsive to all types of treatment

        • Elevated glucose projects worse outcomes on all illness

          • Fasting for 13 hours from a day (MD Anderson) projects ​a 70% decrease in recurrence in breast cancer

          • Stop eating when sun is down

            • Less than 12% of American's are metabolically flexible​

  • Nasha's journey began with her own diagnosis

    • The work of others: Warburg, Bechamp, Deepak Chopra, etc. allowed the possibility of another paradigm and the why of how she got there​

    • Added concepts over time led to the book and the 10 drivers that cause "dis-ease"

      • It is multifactorial 

      • Imperative to change the terrain

        • There is an industry that has kept us from having these discussions​

  • Mistletoe: Druidic mythic history, ​

    • Hippocrates: disorders of the spleen​

    • Steiner: observes us with what is in us, what is outside of us (used mistletoe)

    • Other countries using this well beyond the US, 2500 countries around the world

    • Mistletoe grows symbiotically with the tree. If cut out of the tree, the tree will die

    • Better outcomes without side-effects

  • Project: Believe Big​

    • Previous institutions...lack of true integrative care​

    • To be build in Arizona

      • 25,000 square feet, 300 acres, now in capital campaign, phase zero - training of the physicians to determine best course of treatment, non-profit, creating data-base to collect studies. Will train, treat and hold events. ​​

      • Focus on the training of physicians while making it affordable for all people

      • We have the worst longevity of all countries

  • We have the ability to co-create a better future​
