Interview SummaryDwight McKee is board certified in medical oncology, haematology, nutrition, and integrative and holistic medicine. In addition, he explores the possibilities in homeopathy, acupuncture, mind-body medicine, and energy medicine.
Dwight strongly believes that what we eat regulates our gene expression – epigenetics – and knows that one of the key functions of good health and balance is diversity, whether in our gut, our diet, in agriculture, or on the planet as a whole. An effective way to get the gut healthy is through a micro-biome transplant, also known as a fecal transplant, under the supervision of a professional. Another way is through ingesting fermented foods, and this can be done at home, to regain a healthy gut.
He goes on to discuss ‘cancer rehab’, which includes nutrition, exercise, stress management, social support and a sense of purpose, and tells us how we can look after these aspects ourselves. He also shares some excellent ideas on pre-habilitation.
