Alison Gannett was diagnosed with terminal malignant brain cancer in 2013, and given 6.8 months to live, even with surgery, chemo and radiation. After a partially successful surgery, she found Dr. Nasha Winters, and was thrilled to hear that she could “live a long happy life and die of old age”. 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 DNA and monthly blood chemistry lab tests. 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, that she decided to dedicate her life to paying it forward and helping others.
Alison currently specializes in personalized nutrition and lifestyle coaching – adjunct support to prevent, manage, or conquer cancer using DNA, blood chemistry, health history and molecular tumor pathology. She is a keynote speaker around the globe on the topic of overcoming her terminal cancer and how others can reverse or prevent the root causes of the cancering process.

While no two people are the same, it is a known scientific fact that cancer cells prefer to burn sugar/carbs for fuel. Learn more: Dr. Jockers: The Diet Destroys Cancer A must read!

Learning that using standard of care (SOC) of surgery, chemo and radiation would not save her life, and that “success” from her oncologist’s perspective was to prolong life by a few months, maybe a few years, Alison wanted to find a way to beat her cancer and live a happy and healthy life. Alison immediately connected with Dr. Winter’s scientific approach to personalizing cancer treatment.
Like many cancer patients, Alison had thought she was extremely healthy before 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.
Dr. Nasha worked with Alison to reverse the root causes of cancer – including genetics/epigenetics, blood sugar balance, toxin burden, microbiome/digestion, immune system, inflammation, blood circulation/angiogenesis, hormone balance, stress/biorhythms, and mental/emotional health. She tracks 70 lab markers monthly to monitor her health in order to adjust treatments, diet, lifestyle, exercise, stress, and sleep. Dr. Nasha Winters also used a wide variety of treatments to reduce the tumor burden, including hyperbaric oxygen (HBOT), low dose naltrexone (LDN), and high dose melatonin.
Alison’s cancer not only stopped “tumoring,” which defied and mystified her oncology team, but many other health issues 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 farm in Colorado.
