The ketogenic diet is a natural, non toxic, science based cancer diet which can be used for cancer prevention and treatment. It works because cancer cells are dependent upon a constant supply of blood sugar (glucose) to stay alive. Normal cells can use ketones as an alternative fuel, cancer cells can't. A ketogenic diet lowers blood glucose while increasing ketone levels, a metabolic state which effectively starves cancer cells while nourishing normal cells. This essential, well referenced book is based on cutting edge research on ketogenic dietary therapies from Dr. Dominic D'Agostino at the University of South Florida and Dr. Thomas Seyfried at Boston College, with their generous permission. The book offers the latest information on:* How and why a low carb, high fat ketogenic diet works to stop cancer cells, how to implement the diet and how to monitor your progress* Blood glucose and ketone level targets recommended to destroy cancer*What foods to choose and how much to eat *Why certain foods must be restricted*Use of calorie restriction and fasting*Whether alcohol is allowed *The debate between acidity vs alkalinity*Appropriate supplementation and much more.

The book addresses controversies related to the origins of cancer and provides solutions to cancer management and prevention. It expands upon Otto Warburg's well-known theory that all cancer is a disease of energy metabolism. However, Warburg did not link his theory to the "hallmarks of cancer" and thus his theory was discredited. This book aims to provide evidence, through case studies, that cancer is primarily a metabolic disease requring metabolic solutions for its management and prevention. Support for this position is derived from critical assessment of current cancer theories. Brain cancer case studies are presented as a proof of principle for metabolic solutions to disease management, but similarities are drawn to other types of cancer, including breast and colon, due to the same cellular mutations that they demonstrate.

This book is about my son's journey with type I diabetes and my own journey with aggressive breast cancer. It is about how I linked type I diabetes with epilepsy and how this helped me link cancer with epilepsy as well. I modified the traditional ketogenic diet used at Johns Hopkins Medical Center to treat epilepsy. I then used my own version of the diet to make my breast cancer tumor disappear in about two weeks. It is also about using my modified ketogenic diet for my son who is a type I diabetic, and him being able to eat without needing any insulin and without doing any calorie restrictions. This is my diet of hope -along with the research that comes from my heart- that I am sharing with you. "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." Hippocrates

Cancer survivors Domini Kemp and Patricia Daly offer the first comprehensive ketogenic cookbook based on the most exciting new research on nutritional approaches to the prevention and management of cancer. For decades, the ketogenic diet—which shifts the body’s metabolism from burning glucose to burning fat, lowering blood sugar and insulin and resulting in a metabolic state known as ketosis—has been used to successfully manage pediatric epilepsy. More recently, it has been used by the Paleo community as a weight loss strategy. Now emerging research suggests that a ketogenic diet, in conjunction with conventional treatments, also offers new hope for those coping with cancer and other serious disease. With endorsements from leading researchers and oncologists such as Dr. Thomas Seyfried (Cancer as a Metabolic Disease), The Ketogenic Kitchen offers more than 250 recipes, as well as meal plans and comprehensive scientific information about the benefits of a ketogenic diet, with sensible advice to help readers through periods of illness, recovery, and treatment. This North American paperback edition has been updated to include U.S. customary units of measure appearing side-by-side with metric measures.

A Comprehensive Guide for Patients and Practitioners Although evidence supporting the benefits of ketogenic diet therapies continues to mount, there is little to guide those who wish to adopt this diet as a metabolic therapy for cancer. Keto for Cancer fills this need. Inspired by the work of Dr. Thomas Seyfried and written by nutritionist Miriam Kalamian, this is the first book to lay out guidelines that specifically address the many challenges facing those with cancer. Kalamian, a leading voice in the keto movement, is driven by passion from her own experience in using the ketogenic diet for her young son. Her book addresses the nuts and bolts of adopting the diet, from deciding whether keto is the right choice, to developing a personal plan for smoothly navigating the keto lifestyle. It is invaluable for both beginners and seasoned users of the ketogenic diet as well as for health care professionals who need a toolkit to implement this targeted metabolic therapy. The book guides readers to a deeper understanding of the therapeutic potential of the ketogenic diet--which extends well beyond simply starving cancer--emphasizing the powerful impact the diet has on the metabolism of cancer cells. Nutritional nuances are explored in sections such as "Fasting Protocols" and "Know What's in the Foods You Eat" while meal templates and tracking tools are provided in "Preparing Keto Meals". Kalamian also discusses important issues such as self-advocacy. Readers of Keto for Cancer are empowered to "get off the bench and get in the game." To that end, Kalamian offers tips on how to critically examine cancer care options then incorporate what resonates into a truly personalized treatment plan.

Well, to put it succinctly, the cause of cancer can be simply called as a mistake! Yes, a mistake in the cell formation process called DNA replication. Now, the further the cycles of DNA replication a cell line goes through, the more mistake is to be expected... that at some point, somewhere, a replication fault will be made somehow! However, the truth is that a huge majority of these so called errors or slips if you like, will be harmless at the end. On the other hand, the truth that we must not overlook is that the more mistakes you have, the more likely that at some point, someplace one of those mistakes will be harmful! Okay, you may say... one harmful mistake need not be the end of the world, but then again, there's an obstinate, snowballing effect to this: yes, look at it this way, there are some of the copying mistakes we make that will make our copying and proofreading mechanisms more error-prone themselves, and the implication is that it will lead to more mistakes. So, the more mistakes you have... the more mistakes you'll have. Other than the proofreading mechanisms, there is also another aspect to it... I mean the suicide aspect of this thing that we need to also take note of. Yes, and that is called the mechanism (apoptosis) in which case, the challenging cell lines destroy themselves! Well, to look at it from this other perspective, I will say it is kind of like the philosophies or the thinking in some cultures where the older individuals, not wanting to be a liability to the other members of the clan, will just die off in a corner someplace. Yes, besides that, there is also the good old impervious system which will normally search and terminate reprobate cell lines. What's more, the tricky thing is that with abundant mistakes, the apoptotic mechanism itself also becomes out of order and the reprobate cell line becomes resistant to the immune system of the body! As a result, what will happen is that such a reprobate cell line for instance, won't stop duplicating itself, in fact, it will propagate into other tissues and body parts, and in the process will divert blood flow to feed itself at the expense of others! Yes, it will be resistant to any attempts to suppress it, and on the final analysis, it won't kill itself like it is theoretically expected to do. As a matter of fact, this psychopathic cell line, which is obviously a reprobate cell line in all sense that has refused to play by the rules as we described above, is what is called cancer! Now, I will like you to get your copy of the book today and avail yourself the full benefit to access all the details of -How to Fight Cancer the Ketogenic Diet Way and Naturally Eliminate Cancer As a Metabolic Disease from a Cancer Fighting Kitchen Today!-

Ketogenic diets have been used to successfully treat epilepsy and stop seizures for nearly a century. When more traditional therapies, such as pharmacology, reach their limitations for treatment, the metabolic approach surpasses, targeting the overall physiology and homeostatic functions of the patient. Ketogenic Diet and Metabolic Therapies is the first comprehensive scientific resource on the ketogenic diet, covering the latest research including the biomedical mechanisms, established and emerging applications, metabolic alternatives, and implications for health and disease. Experts in clinical and basic research share their research into mechanisms spanning from ion channels to epigenetics, their insights based on decades of experience with the ketogenic diet in epilepsy, and their evidence for emerging applications ranging from autism to Alzheimer's disease to brain cancer. Research in metabolic therapies has spread into laboratories and clinics of every discipline, and is yielding to entirely new classes of drugs and treatment regimens. The book's editor, Susan A. Masino, brings her unique expertise in clinical and research neurology to the overall scope of this work. To further enhance the scope and quality of this one of a kind book, section editors Eric Kossoff, Jong Rho, Detlev Boison, and Dominic P. D'Agostino lend their oversight on their respective sections.

One out of three women alive today, and one out of two men, will face a cancer diagnosis, according to the World Health Organization. Ty Bollinger takes this personally: in the course of a decade, he says, I lost my entire family to cancer. I don t believe I had to lose them. "The Truth about Cancer" has been written for one simple reason: to share the knowledge we need to protect ourselves, treat ourselves, and in some cases save our lives or the lives of those we love. Bollinger, whose October 2015 documentary miniseries "The Truth about Cancer: A Global Quest "has received over 5 million views to date, explains that there are many methods we can access to treat and prevent cancer we just don t know about them. The book delves into the history of medicine all the way back to Hippocrates s credo of do no harm as well as up-to-the-minute research that proves the efficacy of dozens of advanced cancer treatments being used around the globe. Bollinger arms readers with essential, sometimes startling information about: The history and politics of cancerThe takeover of medical education by special interests and for-profit agendasHow some life-saving treatments have been kept from the public and whyTreatment options that go well beyond chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery To us this is not a business, it s a mission, he explains. We re on a mission to save the world. "

When it comes to cancer, conventional doctors are trained to treat their patients exclusively with surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. These methods are grueling on the whole body - and they don't treat beyond the tumor or the cancer itself. The focus is on the disease, not the whole person - and because of this, the outcomes in conventional medicine can be bleak. But it doesn't have to be this way. Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy has developed a whole-person approach to treating cancer - and these treatments have helped thousands of patients through her Cancer Center for Healing. In The Cancer Revolution, Dr. Connealy shows you how to get to the root causes of cancer and the practical steps you can take to get back on the path to healing - from balancing your body's chemistry with nutritional supplements, following a healthy food plan, detoxifying your body and home, exercising regularly, getting deep restful sleep every night, practicing stress reduction techniques, and putting together a supportive healing team. Chemotherapy and radiation have their place in treatment, but in many cases, they are simply not enough, because cancer isn't caused by one thing, but by many different factors. All of these causes must be addressed, not just the tumor. The Cancer Revolution will equip you to make impactful, achievable lifestyle choices that fight the root of the disease, and that offer hope for recovery and a cancer-free life.
