LCCP038: Dr. Nasha Winters, ND — Treating the Whole Person, Not Just the Tumor

This week, Dr. Nasha Winters ND, FABNO, L.Ac, Dipl.OM and CEO of Optimal Terrain Consulting joins me to share her incredible, real-life journey of healing through lifestyle and emphasis on whole health. After beating a diagnosis of terminal cancer at the age of 19, she transformed her life into an ongoing resource for thousands of people who are navigating their way through cancer and standard of care treatments.

Her refreshing multi-view approach focuses on the whole person, focusing less on the cancer and more on making the host stronger. She combines conventional therapy with whole-body, nutritional lifestyle therapy to optimize her patients’ terrain.
