Tina Kaczor, ND, FABNO, interviews Greg Nigh, ND, LAc, about the emerging concept of cancerous growth as a metabolically driven process, rather than a genetically driven one. The interview is inspired by a recent publication by the esteemed Dr. James Watson, who touches on many of the metabolic processes involved in cancerous growth/dissemination. Nigh explains how many of the mechanisms of growth have been targets of integrative oncology focused growth control for quite some time. In addition, he refutes Watson's hypothesis that antioxidants are detrimental in cancer care.

Greg Nigh, ND, LAc, co-founded Nature Cures Clinic with Dr. Greg Eckel in 2002. He completed his undergraduate work at the University of Notre Dame and began his study of alternative medicine at Arizona State University. Dr. Nigh graduated with combined naturopathic and Chinese medicine degrees from the National College of Natural medicine, and professional training in Ericksonian hypnotherapy. He is currently practicing at Nature Cures Clinic in downtown Portland, Ore., where he specializes in naturopathic oncology.
