Training Course Outline

High Dose Sodium Selenite, Vitamin K3 and Methionine Restriction Protocol

The Nutritional Oncology Research Institute offers a training course that covers all aspects of the sodium selenite/K3/methionine restriction cancer therapy protocol. This course is intended for naturopathic physicians, integrative oncologists, clinical nutritionists and any professional involved in outside-the-mainstream healing methods for cancer. Completion of the course will enable a professional practicing in the field of oncology to successfully implement the protocol and have the basic fundamental understanding of all the mechanisms involved. A clear understanding of the protocol is essential because of potential negative interactions with supplements and other treatments. The foundation or platform of the protocol is diet and this is discussed in great detail.

It is believed that diet alone, in some cases, is sufficient to reverse tumor progression. This is the underlying philosophy of NORI and the scientific evidence for this will be discussed. Also presented will be extensive evidence supporting the concept of cancer as a metabolic disease. The entire course requires a minimum of 8 hours but can be completed in one day if necessary. It is preferred that the course is broken down into 2 to 3 segments.
