The Model Health Show

Cancer is one of the most serious diagnoses one could face, and in our society, it’s becoming more and more common. While some forms of cancer are influenced by genetics, the good news is that we have a lot of power to influence our propensity toward disease. Our habits and inputs such as diet, weight, and exposure to toxins can play a huge role in cancer risk. Today’s guest, Dr. Christian Gonzalez, is an expert on preventing and treating cancer.

Dr. Christian Gonzalez is a naturopathic oncologist and the host of the Heal Thy Self Podcast. He is passionate about education and giving folks the tools needed to promote health, prevent cancer and other chronic diseases, and heal from within. Today, he’s back on the show to demystify cancer and share what is really contributing to our skyrocketing rates of cancer.

We’ll talk about the impact alcohol has on the development of cancer, how to reduce your overall toxic burden and the role that emotions and mental health play in our physical health.
