Nutrition for Cancer
A holistic approach to supporting the treatment, prevention, and survivorship of oncology patients.
“Cancer is not a disease – it’s a survival mechanism.” – Andreas Moritz
Relatively few people realize that holding on to resentment, anger, fear, avoiding the sun, poor sleep, or eating chemical additives is no less dangerous than drinking polluted water.
Hi, I’m Vanessa Harris.
An oncology nutritionist and certified holistic health coach.
Boulder Functional Nutrition is my private practice brimming with compelling evidence showcasing the impact of diet, exercise, thoughts, emotions, and environmental toxins on the initiation, growth, and progression of cancer. We are not at the mercy of our genetic predispositions; there’s a wealth of proactive measures we can take to maintain our well-being. If a cancer-inducing scenario can arise from factors such as a nutrient-deficient diet rich in sugar and chemicals, lack of physical activity, chronic stress, and continuous exposure to pollutants like heavy metals, it stands to reason that adopting a nutrient-rich diet, engaging in regular exercise, cultivating positive thoughts and stress responses, and detoxifying the body can serve as preventative and healing measures against cancer.
This perspective resonates strongly with me, and is the bases of my hoilitic apprach.
