I am so glad I found the AntiCancer Lifestyle Program. This is an amazing idea and gift. Our son-in-law at 39 has glioblastoma. After surgery, chemo, and radiation we hope, no relapse. Hope, however, is not a plan. My wife and I are changing to help him change.”

“My patients respond to the Anticancer Lifestyle Program in a way I find unprecedented in 30 years of Radiation Oncology practice. It helps them feel that we are caring for them, and not just delivering cancer treatment.”

“If you are a Human Resources or wellness professional looking to take your employee health and well-being strategies to the next level, the Anticancer Lifestyle Program is unrivaled. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Offering this course to all of our employees really underscores how much we care about them and their loved ones.”

Gut Health: What Is It & How to Improve It

 

Your gut is home to trillions of bacterial cells, fungi, and viruses—all of which make up your gut “microbiome”. These microbes play a critical role in your health, affecting digestion, immune function, weight regulation, and much more.

Dr. Jennifer McQuade, a medical oncologist at MD Anderson Cancer Center, will discuss the myriad ways that gut microbiome affects our overall health; the risk of cancer and response of cancer to certain treatments; and how the choices we make–such as diet and supplements–impact the microbiome and the immune system.

You will learn:
– What exactly the gut microbiome is and how it affects human health and disease
– Why probiotics are not always good for gut health
– How a healthy gut can affect cancer and cancer therapies
– Practical advice about which foods and other factors help can help or harm the microbiome
