Treating Cancer with a Ketogenic Diet, Part 1


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.
