This is our Oncometabolic Advantage program for clients with all types of primary (not metastatic) Brain Tumors. An evidence-based approach—drawing on hundreds of published research studies—calibrated to your body's unique biochemistry. We show you how to employ a handful of lab tests to compare your body's terrain to the Biomarkers of Cancer Survival. Our Blood Work Decoder™ shows you what's clinically relevant for YOU, so you know which diet strategies and natural agents to prioritize. Best of all, repeat testing allows you to clearly see your progress in meeting your wellness goals!
If you’re like most people facing brain cancer, you’ve been spending a lot of time searching for answers.
Is this you?
- You believe surgery, radiation and chemotherapy aren’t enough...the body needs much more in order to heal.
- You’re eager to ditch competing nutrition dogmas (vegan? ketogenic? paleo? macrobiotic?) and ready to leap beyond conflicting research studies (are antioxidants helpful or harmful?)
- Seems everyone you meet suggests a different “Magic Bullet,” and you’re anxious to discover which supplements are the best choices for you…and whether they’re safe to take with your medications or treatments.
- You’re looking for a comprehensive, evidence-based plan—diet, supplements and lifestyle strategies—that targets all 8 Hallmarks of Cancer (epigenetics, angiogenesis, immune support, etc.)
- You want to work one-on-one with an oncology nutrition expert to craft a plan that’s tailored to your body’s unique biochemistry
- You’ve got enough stress on your plate right now, and you’re looking to put together a team of integrative practitioners so you can relax, feel confident, and focus on your healing journey
Then maybe you’re looking for us…
Jeanne M. Wallace, PhD, CNC, has spent 20+years studying the science: more than 12,000 published studies on the anti-cancer effects of specific foods, nutrients, herbs and supplements.
Michelle Gerencser, MS, has guided thousands of clients through the process of applying that research to their own situation.
Our focus is on evidence-based supplements and diet strategies to build a robust anti-cancer environment in your body.
You see, cancer cells don’t exist in isolation, they’re influenced by the body's biochemistry, what Jeanne calls the "Oncometabolic Milieu." Published studies document an array of modifiable prognostic biomarkers associated with improved survival (e.g., the Biomarkers of Survival). Evaluating these biomarkers with simple lab tests lets us tailor your program to your body's exact needs (no shooting in the dark).

What People are Saying
“Jeanne Wallace’s encyclopedic knowledge of the biochemical mechanisms that can feed or, to the contrary, greatly limit the spread of cancer impressed me when I heard her present her results at a conference organized by the National Institute of Health in 2001. As observed by researchers of the NIH, many of the patients Jeanne looked after – while they were receiving conventional medical treatment – survived far longer than originally predicted. I have been following her advice myself since that time. I am in her debt for many of the key ideas in my book, Anti-Cancer: A New Way of Life – especially her scientific analysis of the different factors constituting the “terrain” and how to influence them with natural interventions. I probably also owe her to a large extent the good health that has enabled me to write, and to enjoy doing it.”
—David Servan-Schreiber, MD

“Dear Michelle, Once again, (my son) and I would like to thank you for your thoughtful, in-depth guidance of (my son's) supplemental program. We both felt very encouraged by your advice and information concerning his recovery from the problems of this past month. We have only spoken to you several times, now, but like all your clients probably, we feel such a strong bond between us. Your peaceful spirit is palpable and healing, always. (My son), seems so much better, just having spent an hour with you. Myself also. Know that we can't help but feel like you’re family to us, somehow, and pray for you as such. We pray whatever your needs, that they may be resolved and that you will continue in strength and health. I have never met anyone who has been such a sensitive listener. Endless thanks.. —Mother and adult son with Brain Tumor
"Dr. Wallace is an immeasurable source of knowledge and information. Being a cancer caregiver herself, she has great insight into what we are all facing. I have been impressed by her intelligence, her knowledge of foods, nutrients and herbs, and her positive attitude."
Father of a son with GBM Brain Tumor
"Jeanne Wallace, PhD, has done pioneering work in the nutritional approach to cancer, particularly brain cancer. I have been very impressed by the results and have recommended her to many of our clients. They have been uniformly pleased."
—Ralph Moss, PhD
Director of www.CancerDecisions.com
"Dr. Wallace is one of the most prominent practitioners of clinical nutritional oncology. She may be the nation's single most knowledgeable clinician in the area of treating patients with brain tumors with nutritional interventions."
—Dr. Andrew Freinkel, MD
Stanford University Hospital
"Whenever I hear of a person who has been diagnosed with a brain tumor, the very first referral I make is to Dr. Jeanne Wallace. Her breadth and depth of knowledge of all of the best treatments - nutritional, traditional and investigational - coupled with her commitment to sharing that knowledge with her clients, make her the #1 practitioner in the area of brain tumors. While it was our neurosurgeon's skill that saved my husband's life 10 years ago, it is Dr. Wallace who gave him back his health."
Founder www.HonestMedicine.com and wife of Timothy Fisher, Astrocytoma III survivor
"Jeanne Wallace is among a small handful of gifted practitioners who has succeeded in synthesizing the complex and wide volume of available research in the field of integrative care. Her work with brain cancer deserves further attention from the research community."
—Keith I. Block, MD, Medical Director
Block Center for Integrative Cancer Care,
Editor-In-Chief, Integrative Cancer Therapies
"Your program is absolutely incredible! My wife said my jaw was literally hanging open as I was reading. It is exactly what I was searching for without even knowing what I was seeking. We are in complete alignment scientifically and spiritually. You are another blessing and strong connection that have entered my life and reinforced my Divine Cheesecloth. Know that what you are doing is deeply important and touching. You undoubtedly will be a strong force in my long term survival.
—Chris, client with GBM IV brain tumor
"My husband was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme (with Oligo component) when he was 43 years old. Earlier this week, we celebrated his 4 year ‘tumorversary’. Many of our family and friends agree that he hasn’t just ‘survived’ but has ‘thrived’ in the past 4 years—something that many of us believe is owed, in no small part, to the advice we have received (and the lifestyle choices we have subsequently made) from Nutritional Solutions. We started working with Nutritional Solutions shortly after my husband was diagnosed and quickly came to depend on them for their vast knowledge and expertise in matters of nutrition and supplements pertaining to brain cancer. In all interactions with staff at Nutritional Solutions, we have found them to be professional, courteous, prompt, compassionate, encouraging and helpful. The breadth and depth of their understanding is extensive. Whatever question we throw at them in a consult, they can usually provide a detailed response, backed up by peer-reviewed research. My husband is clearly fortunate to be in the small percentile who have not experienced a recurrence of his tumor at this time. 4 years later we are both living healthy, productive, rich lives. We owe this to many different factors—some known, some unknown—but we believe that we could not have done it and would not be here without the advice, encouragement and support provided by the consults at Nutritional Solutions.
—Wife of Aaron, GBM IV survivor
"Nutrition is probably the single most important factor in fighting cancer, yet most Western medical doctors have virtually no training in nutrition. If you want to have a real chance at beating cancer, getting the right nutrition advice is worth its weight in gold. Fortunately, for brain cancer, we have the folks at Nutritional Solutions, who are world experts in the topic and very kind, compassionate people. I attribute my sister's success so far in her battle with brain cancer (despite the gloomy death prognostications of the oncologist) in large part to Jeanne’s research and Michelle's ongoing advice and care."
—Sister of a brain tumor client
"Just wanted to let you know that Mark is doing well, and is (so far) a 5 1/2 year GBM survivor! He is still able to work and even travel. We know much of this is due to the nutritional guidance and supplements we’ve had through Nutritional Solutions (and, of course, the grace of God)! Thank you for all you do!
—Wife of a client GBM brain tumor
"I engaged Nutritional Solutions to consult with me after a life threatening diagnosis of a malignant brain tumor. I searched throughout the world to find a practitioner that knew how to coordinate the medical knowledge and treatment regimen of brain tumors, along with having the knowledge of supplements that would work hand-in-hand with the treatments. Most holistic doctors don’t understand the scientific workings on the drugs, while the MD’s don’t understand the functions and roles of the supplements and nutrition. With Jeanne, I came to understand the function of the drugs I was taking, while learning how to properly combine supplements to help alleviate some of the side effects. Most natural doctors just push product without a Big Picture understanding. I wholeheartedly endorse her efforts and knowledge of oncology in implementing a sound nutritional and supplemental regimen in combatting cancers.
—Meredith, survivor of GBM IV since 2005
"As you know, since 1997 I have probably been the BIGGEST BELIEVER in the power of nutrition against cancer. Now that I have celebrated my 22nd year of survival after my diagnosis and treatment for a stage IV brain tumor, and prognosis of one year to live. No one will ever be able to convince me Nutritional Solutions wasn’t a huge “part” of why I am still here.
—Cheryl, survivor of GBM IV since 1997
"If it wasn’t for the office of Nutritional Solutions I don’t think I would be alive today. I am back doing my normal activities and I don’t have any deficits. I can do everything I did before the surgery and treatment. I was fortunate because I was referred to them prior to my surgery and they helped me every step of the way. It has been years since my surgery with no signs of new growth of cancer. Thanks to your staff, I don’t even think of cancer anymore.
—Doug, 9-year survivor of Anaplastic Oligodendroglioma III brain tumor
Hi, Just want to let you all know that mum had her results from her MRI yesterday (after her 6 weeks of radiation and following your program) and the doctors have said that she is cancer-free. We are all in shock just as much as the doctors. I truly believe that this outcome has a lot to do with you guys and the program that you had her on. Thank you very very much. Thank you so so much. We are all in shock really more than anything!!! We truly believe that we would not have had this outcome if it wasn't for the help from all of you. —Sarah, daughter of client with GBM IV brain tumor
"They are a wealth of knowledge and offer a great deal of sound advice which they back with scientific research. They send packets filled with information on a wide range of supplements, off-label drugs, as well as approaches to complement and enhance traditional approaches. They also provide suggestions on how to deal with side effects. Advice for dietary guidelines is given and they can track your progress using your blood test results. In my view, they provide a key missing piece in any brain tumor patient's regimen. HIGHLY recommended.
