Creating a New
Direction in Cancer Care
NORI is an independent research organization that has developed non-conventional methods for cancer treatment that do not rely on toxic drugs, surgery, or radiation. Cancer patients who choose to avoid conventional therapies or who have exhausted all other options may wish to explore this revolutionary and unique approach to cancer treatment and management offered exclusively by NORI. The NORI program is designed to be the most cost-effective alternative cancer treatment available. NORI represents the future in treating cancer in a safely and holistically, in the most health promoting, effective, and scientifically sound manner possible.

The NORI Approach
Nutrition plays a major role in cancer prevention and if utilized properly, diet can change the course of cancer progression. Many dietary factors affect the rate of tumor growth and specific dietary interventions may potentially reverse tumor progression. The key difference between the NORI approach and other nutritionally based cancer treatments is that NORI attempts to limit the availability of essential nutrients necessary to cancer cell survival while supplying adequate nutrients to healthy cells. The NORI approach to cancer nutrition is not designed to build or enhance the immune system. Cancer cells, like normal cells, have built-in means of defense against immune system attack, what separates conventional from most alternative cancer therapies is selectivity, meaning that conventional treatments destroy healthy cells while alternative therapies attempt to spare them.
What is Cancer?
To effectively provide cancer treatment, one must understand its nature; relevent points of consideration include risk and growth factors, vulnerabilities, and genetics. NORI views cancer as a condition that is not an illness, disease, or failure of the immune system, but cellular dysfunction caused by environmental exposure to certain cancer-causing agents. Cancer originates in specific cell types called adult quiescent stem cells; these cells can remain dormant for the entirety of one’s life, but, if damaged by radiation, pharmaceutical drugs, toxic chemicals, or certain viruses, can become immortal, forming tumors that invade healthy tissues and impede the function of organs and other structures in the body. Cancer cells house damaged mitochondria, which are the components of the cell responsible for generating energy. This is why cancer cells revert to glycolysis (fermentation of sugar) for generation of ATP (energy currency).
Cancer cells are constantly under high levels of oxidative stress; this outstanding vulnerability is an excellent target for treatment as it separates them catagorically from the normal cells that surround them. There are many ways to increase the amount of oxidative stress in the cancer cell; several natural agents are able to generate excess oxidative stress in malignant tissue while causing no damage to normal cells in the process.
Cancer cells have an abnormally high requirement for amino acids to constantly regenerate as they do, most notably for the compound methionine; methionine is found primarily in animal products, which is why we recommend a plant-based to all of our patients. Dietary restriction of methionine and other amino acids starves cancer cells of nutrients essential to their continued growth.
Naturopathic and Holistic Medicine
NORI is strongly aligned with naturopathic and holistic medicine as this is the path towards healing that will achieve the best outcome. Like other degenerative diseases, cancer responds well to nutritional intervention along with overall lifestyle enhancement. Treating cancer effectively must address the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the individual. The primary work of NORI is in healing the physical body while encouraging the cancer patient to seek emotional healing and spiritual guidance.
