Hacking Your Nutritional Approach to Health
Nutrition has the power to positively affect our lives. One of the most profound areas where this can occur is in the process of cancer treatment. Nutrition, in concert with traditional medical interventions, can help make cancer therapies more effective to increase chances of survival.
In this episode of Curves Welcome podcast, I chat with Martha Tettenborn, RD about hacking chemo using "the ketogenic diet, therapeutic fasting, and a kickass attitude to power through cancer."

Hacking Chemo Book
Cancer thrives on sugar. Cancer cells need it, unable to grow and multiply without a steady supply of glucose. But after a cancer diagnosis, medical and dietary recommendations from oncology doctors often result in increased blood sugar and insulin levels—the essential elements that cancer cells need to thrive.
In Hacking Chemo, Registered Dietitian and cancer survivor Martha Tettenborn uncovers the secrets of cancer metabolism, offering a refreshing new way of treating the disease with minimal side effects and maximum effectiveness. Cancer treatment like chemotherapy doesn’t have to derail your life. You can be your own bio-hacker by decoding how cancer works in your body…and your life.
