Cancer: Natural Methods for Prevention and Treatment

Cancer is an emotionally-charged condition with enormous physical and psychological power. Because it claims more lives each year in the US than any other disease, it is critical that we understand what it is, how it starts, and how it grows. Only then can we take the appropriate action to prevent or treat it. This class will clearly outline the basics that every person should know about cancer. Dr. Bongiorno will cover risk factors for the disease, ways to help prevent it, and what to do if diagnosed. He'll discuss how to safely use natural therapies as adjuncts to conventional care. Experimental therapies will be explored as well. You'll leave with a list of specific foods and lifestyle recommendations proven to reduce cancer rates and recurrences.
