Cancer is a disease caused by uncontrollable growth of abnormal (damaged) cells in the body,typically seen as a malignant tumor.这些肿瘤的目的是通过接管健康的器官来征服细胞；迅速蔓延并导致毁灭。在使用功能性食品和营养素进行癌症治疗和预防时，重要的是与接受过行动机制教育的从业者合作，确保预期效果不会被其他副作用或生物功能障碍所抵消。
At Naturally Nourished,我们的重点是通过切断肿瘤的燃料来源来饥饿肿瘤，阻止新血管的生长（血管生成），通过促进自然杀伤细胞（NK）对抗癌症和诱导细胞死亡来增强免疫功能。随着医学的发展，we can aggressively fight tumor growth while supporting your body with anti-inflammatory nutrients from clean non-processed foods.

DID YOU KNOW??
Everyone has potentially cancerous cells in their body.在美国影响我们的最常见癌症（乳腺癌，结肠前列腺）比亚洲等地区流行10-60xs，然而，population studies have identified the same amount of precancerous cells in both regions.This suggests it is our lifestyle (diet,锻炼，stress levels,environment,etc.) that provokes cancer growth.Another study published in the New England Journal of Medicine separates nature from nurture as it looks at cancer rates among adopted children.The adoptees with no genetic connection to their adoptive parents who solely passed on their lifestyle and behaviors had a 5-fold increased risk of cancer mortality demonstrating a lifestyle or nurture causation.然而，if the genetic parent had cancer there was no influence on the child correlated in the research.We can no longer blame"坏的genes as our lifestyle has more of an impact!!
作为一个功能性药物提供者，I focus on the root causes of a condition.This can be seen as addressing the why or origin of a chronic health condition vs.silencing the symptoms.看慢性病的时候，a functional medicine approach examines the epigenome or environmental impact of our genetic code.
The epigenome concept is very empowering to the individual as it states that our environment,包括毒素，stress levels,nutritional status,sleep patterns,and food choices have the ability to up-regulate"turn on"or down-regulate"关掉“specific gene expression.This demonstrates that one could have a gene that is positive for cancer but based on their epigenome it may or may not be expressed"activated".Diet is a key element as our food choices can have an equal impact on both ends of the spectrum serving to fight or provoke cancer.从抗氧化剂到反式脂肪，real foods vs.food-like products can play a great role on our health and disease risk.With your Naturally Nourished practitioner,you will learn about therapeutic foods to include and those to avoid for balanced approaches to fight cancer.
During treatment our body is attacked by chemotherapy and radiation aiming to kill off the rapidly dividing cancer cells;然而，all too often during this time we can suffer from undesired side effects.磷灰石损失，irregular blood sugar levels,疲劳，消化不良包括呕吐，nausea,便秘，腹泻，吞咽困难，gas,膨胀，ulceration,and inflammation can all be addressed with therapeutic dietary approaches.
