As a follow up from Erin’s emotional post on her Cancer survival, I thought this article apropos to post. Erin gives so much credit to her survival of Cancer and continued remission to the Ketogenic diet. Erin also did traditional therapy, but the results were much faster because of Keto. So fast, in fact, that her doctor asked her what she was doing in addition to traditional therapy! We often wonder if Keto could have cured it all, but at 31, she needed to do everything humanly possible to get that disease as far away as possible – forever! So, we are definitely not saying to avoid traditional therapy, but we are saying that you can help yourself move towards faster healing by eliminating sugar from your diet because sugar feeds Cancer! As you will read in the article, a majority of Cancers have been proven to be metabolic diseases. All are not simply genetic, or a case of bad luck, as so many of us have been told and believed for quite some time.
How are metabolic diseases treated? Answer: Diet
If you have not already read our page entitled, “What is a Ketogenic Diet?” I encourage you to do so. While we often speak to Cancer, the Ketogenic Diet can be used to treat many other diseases and illnesses, and help you live a stronger, healthier and more fulfilled life. For instance, it reversed my pre-diabetic status, put my PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome symptoms at bay, and alleviated every bit of lower back pain I had from an injury I sustained while training for a marathon several years ago when I ruptured a disk.
This article is excellent in explaining how great the Keto diet is for most Cancers, and why we don’t hear more about it (hint…$$$).
I also encourage you to do your own research or talk to your doctor about how this type of lifestyle might be able to help you with your own ailments or even just living a healthier lifestyle. I will tell you; I have never felt better, been stronger, or had clearer skin in my entire life! I just wish I had learned about it sooner than a year and a half ago. I hope that it can help you too! Let us know how we can help you!

In an exclusive interview, Dr. Seyfried discussed why the ketogenic diet has not been embraced by the medical community to treat cancer despite its proven track record both clinically and anecdotally.
“The reason why the ketogenic diet is not being prescribed to treat cancer is purely economical,” said Dr. Seyfried, author of Cancer as a Metabolic Disease. “Cancer is big business. There are more people making a living off cancer than there are dying of it.”
