Using a ketogenic diet to fight cancer

Using a ketogenic diet to fight cancer

There are over 300 different dietary approaches and protocols, some of which have been shown to have clinical efficacy in the treatment of cancer. These range from Gerson Therapy, The Budwig Protocol, The Rainbow Diet, The Raw Vegan Diet to the Hippocrates regime and many more in between.

The Ketogenic Diet

This article goes in depth into the ketogenic diet – a diet low in glucose, high in ‘good fat’ with ‘just enough’ protein. Anyone embarking on this dietary approach to combat cancer should also read Dr Mercola’s book ‘Fat for Fuel’ in conjunction with this article.

Starving cancer cells

The key goal of the keto diet is to starve cancer cells. It has the potential to:

  • stop cancer progression
  • inhibit metastasis
  • kill off cancer cells

As well as starving cancer cells, when burning fat for fuel (a state known as dietary ketosis), your body creates a lot less ROS, a free radical that causes tremendous harm to every cell and tissue in your body. Being in ketosis is like being a hybrid car – you burn a much cleaner fuel than a standard diesel car. This allows your immune system and bodily resources to be put to better use by healing itself of many diseases, including cancer.

Much research has been done showing great promise with brain cancer and colorectal cancer. The question is, is it applicable to other cancers?

The simple answer is ‘Yes’. Click here to read the full article by cancer active and learn more about how this specific dietary approach fights cancer.

To your good health,
