She and her team use DNA, blood chemistry lab tests and health history to create customized anti-cancer diet and lifestyle plans. Alison is not only a survivor of”terminal” brain cancer, but credits cancer to changing her whole life for the better. That is not to say the journey has been easy, in fact, at times it can be petrifying and difficult.
Alison Gannett was diagnosed with high grade terminal malignant brain cancer (HPC) in 2013, and given a mean average of 6.8 months to live, even with all that standard of care had to offer – including surgery, chemo and radiation.
As luck would have it, while recovering from a partially successful surgery, she found Dr. Nasha Winters, and was thrilled to hear about the metabolic approach to the root causes of cancer. Dr. Nasha outlined a non-toxic treatment program that was tailored to her tumor pathology testing, as well as radical changes to her diet and lifestyle. Nutritional needs were designed around her Nutrition Genome DNA and 80 monthly blood chemistry lab tests.
This and other testing also revealed a Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, Lyme Disease, Epstein Barr Virus, Parasites, a hormone imbalance, vitamin deficiencies, heavy metals, toxins, radon, high blood sugars and much more. Alison loved the “test don’t guess” model of optimizing her health. She was so thrilled with the results, watching her health improve steadily, that she decided to dedicate her life to paying it forward and helping others.

While no two people are the same, hundreds of studies and overwhelming evidence have shown that cancer cells prefer to burn sugar/carbs for fuel.

Incredible details of the scientific mechanisms of TCR/Keto! “Rarely will a ketogenic diet eliminate cancer, but it will reduce its growth rate and put it into a metabolically stressed position that allow oxidative therapies to be more effective”. (Bio continued below)
Early on, she launched the breakthrough Alison’s AntiCancer Cookbook, including Meal Plans, Shopping Lists, Yes/No Foods and Where to Buy Foods. This was born from the fact that most keto recipes on the internet were not therapeutic, did not have the correct macro ratios, nor did they contain enough nutrient density/diversity to include 9 cups of veggies per day. In 2018 she added “Alison’s 28-Day Repair and Reset” Online DIY program.This program is her heart and soul, and lays the essential foundation to prevent or conquer cancer, or just pave your way to optimal wellness.
As many can relate, Alison thought she was a “healthy person” prior to the big “C” diagnosis. She traveled the world, ate organic, exercised frequently, and had healthy relationships. She blamed her fatigue, poor memory, arthritis, shingles, Epstein Barr, allergies, migraines, infections, and injuries on getting older and just plain “normal”. Upon reflection, right from childhood, her “check engine light” was on, but she had just chosen to “put tape over it”.
Alison’s life began with adversity, as a child of an alcoholic father. Being overweight, dorky, uncoordinated and insecure as a kid, she began to overcome her fears and weight by diving into extreme sports in her 20’s. She became so obsessed with proving her worth, that she became a World Champion Extreme Freeskier in Canada in 1998, and won titles in South America and Japan. She then went on to star in ski films with TGR, Warren Miller, and MSP, and was named freeskier of the year (see the videos and photos below). Meanwhile, she took on the weight of the world, becoming an award-winning climate change consultant, featured by Outside Magazine, National Geographic, and working with Al Gore. Little did she know that the stress of this work and play was taking its toll. “You may love your job, but that does not mean it is not killing you” is a quote she will never forget.
Alison continues daily with work to improve her health. In the meantime, many other health issues have also resolved themselves, including – Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, joint arthritis, breast fibroids, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), seasonal allergies, migraines, bladder/yeast infections, non-alcoholic fatty-liver disease, pre-diabetes, and her Alzheimer’s and heart disease markers.
She and her husband Jason, now currently grow and raise almost all their anti-cancer foods at their Holy Terror Farm in Colorado.
