Announcement – August 30th, 2021. Metabolic Terrain Institute of Health, Inc. joins forces with My Health Journey, Inc., to form an Arizona-based 501c3 organization with a vision to change the standard to cancer care and prevention. The renaming of My Health Journey, Inc. and subsequent relocation to Arizona brings together founders Dr. Nasha Winters, Cindy Kennedy, Deb Lee, and Steve Ottersberg in the state that is the future home of an innovative and integrative non-profit oncology hospital and research institute.
The mission of the Metabolic Terrain Institute of Health is to implement the metabolic approach to cancer by treating the root cause and symptoms of each person’s unique cancer process. The organization provides funding to cancer patients, education to the community and is building a nonprofit integrative research hospital.
The focus of cancer treatment has been based on the genetic theories of cancer. Yet genetic cancers are less than ten percent of all cancers. Ninety percent of cancers are caused by metabolic and mitochondrial dysfunction. As the rates of cancer continue to increase an approach that focuses on the root cause of the cancering process is required. By focusing on the patient and their metabolic health, we are putting the patient at the center of their cancer journey, not the tumor.
Dr. Nasha Winters, ND has been envisioning a hospital where practitioners from all schools of medicine come together to provide individualized metabolic cancer care. Her quest to save her own life from a terminal diagnosis of ovarian cancer thirty years ago has transformed into a mission to support others on a similar journey. “Patients are seeking an integrative approach that brings together the best practitioners from Naturopathic, Western and Functional medicine. Focusing on the patient and not the tumor. The formation of our organization will truly change the standard of care.” says Dr. Nasha Winters. Cindy Kennedy, Founder of My Health Journey and now a co-founder of MTI said “Cancer has affected all of us and it’s time for a change. If we don’t change the approach, we will never change the outcomes and this approach is the change this world needs.”
The Institute of Health will bring together the rigors of a research-based oncology hospital with the wisdom of ancient practices and therapies offered more commonly outside of the USA. “We’ve all had a wake-up call regarding the influence of our environment, treatment, and lifestyle choices on health and healing.” says co-founder Deb Lee. “The nourishing environment and comprehensive amenities designed for the campus will set a new standard for demonstrating a way of living that leads to healing and prevention of disease.”
