ONC Program Course 1: Cancer and the Biological Terrain
Practitioner Focused Terrain Ten Content from the Metabolic Approach to Cancer book
This first course explores the many different terrain-centric dietary, physiological, environmental and emotional factors that have been linked to increased cancer risk, development and progression. Throughout this course, students will examine food from three perspectives - as a contributor to cancer, as a potential cancer inhibitor, and as an integrative cancer therapy. The goal of this introductory course is for students to gain an understanding of how to apply metabolic nutrition therapy to the ten internal and external factors that can contribute to carcinogenesis to ultimately encourage prevention. Students will also learn a comprehensive set of assessments that can help with the identification of terrain imbalances as well as aid in the monitoring of nutrition interventions that focus on both prevention and long term out-comes.
