Treating Cancer with a Ketogenic Diet, Part 1
October 31, 2017
In her new book, "Keto for Cancer," nutrition advocate Miriam Kalamian details the rationale for treating cancer with a ketogenic diet. Based on research by Nobel Prize winner Dr. Otto Warburg nearly 100 years ago, new studies are vindicating the view that sugar is a cancer promoter. The ultra low-carb ketogenic diet targets the metabolic basis of most cancers. It’s not a panacea, but combined with innovative techniques, it can extend life and improve quality of life. Kalamian details her experience with her son, diagnosed with brain cancer, which spurred her interest in the ketogenic diet. What’s left to eat? What’s a typical meal? Is too much protein a stumbling block? Can intermittent fasting and caloric restriction confer some of the benefits of the ketogenic diet? How do dieters check whether they’re achieving ketosis? Is it inadvisable for some conditions? How to cope with carb withdrawal? Additional applications include diabetes, weight loss, Metabolic Syndrome, cardiovascular disease, and polycystic ovarian syndrome, as well as neurodegenerative conditions like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Disease.

Fighting Alzheimer’s, Part 1
March 30, 2017
Amy Berger, author of "The Alzheimer's Antidote," challenges the current paradigm whereby we search for blockbuster drugs to inhibit amyloid plaque in the brain. To date, promising "magic bullet" cures have been ineffective at reversing dementia. Instead she proposes a comprehensive metabolic and lifestyle approach, which has been validated in early clinical trials. What does insulin have to with the decline of brain function? How can low-carb and ketogenic diets help? Why might a low cholesterol diet be harmful for the brain? What role for medium chain triglycerides? What supplements can slow progression? Why is exercise beneficial for staving off cognitive decline? What role does chronic stress play? Why might certain drugs (statins, acid blockers, etc.) accelerate mental decline? What tests predict risk for dementia? Is there a gluten connection? Does high homocysteine forecast memory problems? Click HERE for part 2.
