The Model Health Show

Cancer - the very word in and of itself can put a pit in your stomach. We often think of cancer as an indiscriminate misfortune that randomly occurs. But did you know as little as 5-10% of cancers are determined by our genetics? 

That means that upwards of 90% of cancers are controlled by epigenetic factors, and therefore are in our control. There’s no one better to speak on this topic than Naturopathic Oncologist, Dr. Christian Gonzales. On this episode, Dr. Gonzales is sharing the science behind cancer susceptibility, and how cancer actually occurs in the human body. 

You’re going to learn about the power you have to control your health outcomes, how to hedge your bets against cancer, and why having a sense of community can improve our health. Dr. Gonzales is a true expert in this field, and I hope this episode gives you the knowledge and empowerment you need to become your best and healthiest self for years to come.
