Are you or a loved one in the midst of a cancer diagnosis, or bouncing back from your battle? Welcome to Thrive Through Cancer, the podcast that offers hope in the healing, and shares personal experiences, self-care solutions, health tips, and the support of a community - people just like you. I’m Season Johnson - a functional nutritional therapy practitioner whose son was diagnosed with cancer right before his 3rd birthday. My job was to keep people healthy, to help them fight disease. So when my own son was diagnosed with this scary disease it was so humbling. But rather than becoming a victim I began researching, upleveling my knowledge, my mindset and chose to serve others through our own cancer journey. And this show is an opportunity to find, and share, strength through our situations.
You’ll hear from health professionals, innovative thinkers, dynamic personalities, and those who have learned to live life to the fullest - despite their diagnosis. We will raise some questions, find some answers, shed a few tears, share more than a few laughs, and give each other the motivation to get through one more day…every single day. So join me on this journey, and let’s learn to Thrive Through Cancer…together. Follow us now on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you enjoy your shows.
Ep. 23 - The Vagus Nerve and Why It Matters
I’m so, so excited about today’s episode about the Vagus Nerve. I’ve recently received an increased number of questions about this type of therapy, and I think you’re going to love learning all about the role it plays in a cancer diagnosis and in the prevention of disease.
The Vagus Nerve is actually a very powerful part of the body, but most people either have never heard about it or don’t know what it is…even I didn’t fully understand it until about 2 years ago. So, I’m going to share what it is, how you can easily support it, and some signs and symptoms that you may be experiencing that are signals that your vagus nerve needs support.
This episode is fully packed with information, but I’m excited to equip you with more knowledge on how you support your body’s ability to heal and remove inflammation!

Ep. 22 - Why You Need More Stomach Acid!
Let me ask…have you ever experienced any of the following?
Heartburn Acid reflux Bloating Belching Anemia Nausea Fatigue Headaches Easily sunburned If so, you need to look at your body’s ability to digest food and at its need for hydrochloric acid…and this is exactly what I talk about in today’s podcast episode!
When I started as a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, I focused on digestion. Your digestive system is not only responsible for absorbing nutrients, but it can also inhibit the absorption and trigger disease and illness.
So, I’m going to break all of this down by explaining why you need hydrochloric acid, explain the pH scale, what happens to undigested foods, how this break down impacts your immune system, give you a detailed explanation of how the digestive process looks like if things are going well vs. the reality of what most people experience, and equip you with 10 practical and simple steps to help solve the problem.

Ep. 21 - Finding Purpose In Your Pain
I’m so excited to introduce you to my dear, dear friend, Shauna Dukes! She inspires me every single day, and it’s been such a blessing to me and my life to watch as she has navigated a cancer diagnosis, the loss of her child, and is now stepping into a beautiful role of God using her story to give hope to others! Be prepared to laugh and cry with us as she shares her story, opens up her heart about death, grief and pain, gives insight about the idea of the “backpack”, and discusses the importance of your choices and finding purpose in your pain. Our talk is filled with hope, and I know this conversation will bless you as much as it did me!

Ep. 20 - What’s the best, purest water to drink?
“What kind of water should I drink?”...I can’t tell you how many versions of this question I receive, especially recently.
Second to oxygen, water is the most essential thing to your health, and sadly, most water is contaminated with toxic chemicals and residues that can hinder a healthy vitality. So, let’s jump into the deep end of this topic, and I’m going to share some research, proven facts, and answer some of the most common questions I receive about water.

Ep. 19 - Is Fasting Recommended While Fighting Cancer?
I’m so honored to introduce you to Dr. Jockers! He has played such an important role in my own education as a practitioner, and I think y’all are going to absolutely love the insight, wisdom and education that he brings to today’s episode.
Not only does he share his personal story and journey to becoming a practitioner, but his knowledge regarding fasting, the immune system and cancer is eye-opening! We address some of the fears and benefits regarding fasting, some practical tips, and why fasting is ancient medicine and nature’s operating table. Plus, he’s super easy to understand all of the sciency stuff! :)
