This is our Oncometabolic Advantage program for clients with all types of Childhood Brain Tumors. An evidence-based approach—drawing on hundreds of published research studies—calibrated to your child's unique biochemistry. We show you how to employ a handful of lab tests to compare your child's terrain to the Biomarkers of Cancer Survival. Our Blood Work Decoder™ shows what's clinically relevant for YOUR CHILD, 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 parents with a child facing a brain tumor, 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 child's program to the body's exact needs (no shooting in the dark).

What People are Saying
"In her outstanding work, Jeanne Wallace exemplifies the wise translation of nutritional research into clinical treatments for cancer patients. Based on hard science, her nutrition protocols, which work together with conventional therapies, represent the best of complementary medicine for cancer. Dr. Wallace has documented the remarkable benefits to her clients, who also benefit from her compassionate care."
Author of The Immune Power Personality

“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.”

"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 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
"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
"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 Hosptial
"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."

"I believe every parent whose child is stricken with this disease can benefit significantly from what we have learned. As parents of a child with cancer, the choices we make for them concerning treatment options are probably the most difficult choices any of us will ever have to make as their consequences are so severe. Halfway through chemo, my wife went to a brain-tumor-camp in Maine at "Camp Sunshine" where a man told her about Dr Jeanne Wallace in Logan, Utah, who specializes in brain cancer nutrition. This person's enthusiasm for the progress he witnessed in his own child was so persuasive that we contacted her office. The information she has shared with us so far has been nothing short of miraculous. Our daughter’s blood-counts were better than would be expected during chemo, she recovered from each round of chemo faster than normal, and her post-treatment health has been wonderful. We are now working on a program to repair the damage done to the brain caused by the radiation. We were under the popular opinion that radiation damage done to the brain is to be accepted as a necessary evil used to kill the cancer and that nothing can be done about it. Well, according to Dr Wallace that is not the whole story; something CAN be done about it. Before she began using the supplements that work to repair brain-damage, she was becoming increasingly slow of learning anything new. We have witnessed a significant improvement in her cognitive abilities and her overall health since beginning this program.
—Joe, father of a 6-yr-old daughter with Medulloblastoma
"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 brain tumor client
“Michelle, thank you so much...Your information was so helpful...You're the best! — An anchor when we are starting to drift!” — Wife of client with Brain Tumor
"In August 2008 I was diagnosed with Epdendymoma II. I had to undergo a few surgeries and a series of radiotherapy treatment. But even after those the MRI showed remains of the tumor in my brain… Somewhere between the surgeries and the radiotherapy my caring sister found Nutritional Solutions. At first I was not too glad about the diet. It forbid lots of foods that I liked, but of course as a grownup man I understood that my health is more important than my love for sweets. I realized that it's a war—one side of the battlefield was me and on the other was that awful tumor...that I must gather all the a allies I can to defeat it - the traditional doctors and their treatment, the love and care of my family and friends, my endless optimism that I was blessed with since childhood… and last but not least your recommendations! At first my traditional doctors were very skeptical, but after observing my fast recovery by the MRI scans, they told me that I certainly should keep using it! Today almost 4 years after I am completely healthy! The MRI scans of the past 2 years show that there are no more evidence of active tumor cells! I have won the war, and by no small part - thanks to you, Jeanne Wallace!
—Lev, Ependymoma II brain tumor
“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
