Wickedly Smart Women

Dec 22, 2021

Dr. Laleh Talebian lost her father to stomach cancer when she was 15 years old. But after earning a PhD in biology, Dr. Laleh realized that 75% of cancers are entirely preventable. So, what can we do to make our wellbeing a priority and prevent disease? How do we build healthy eating and active living into our daily lives?

Dr. Laleh is a research scientist who specializes in cancer prevention and education. After seven years of working in a clinical setting, she left traditional medicine and its culture of sick care for entrepreneurship. Rather than treat conditions, Dr. Laleh provides true healthcare, helping clients prevent disease through nutrition and other lifestyle choices.

On this episode of Wickedly Smart Women, Dr. Laleh joins Anjel to explain how her father’s death inspired her study of molecular biology and why she made the shift from cancer research to cancer prevention and education. She describes her individualized approach to minimizing the risk of disease, sharing the story of a client she helped overcome cancer through diet and exercise. Listen in for insight on prioritizing your health as an entrepreneur and learn how Dr. Laleh can help you heal from a chronic condition—or prevent it from happening in the first place!
