High-fat ketogenic diet is an interesting area of research and it is now being considered as a potential cancer treatment.
The concept of ketogenic diet that is rich in fats and poor in the carbs is not a new thing. It was developed first in 1920 at the John Hopkins School for the children with epilepsy. It was discovered that those children who were not responding well to anti-seizure drugs become free of seizures after using ketogenic diet strictly.
The term Ketogenic diet is named after ketones that are considered an alternative energy source for the brain when there is ketosis. Ketosis is a state that occurs either by fasting from all foods or by eating a high-fat diet with less amount of carbohydrates resulting in decreased insulin production. Coconut oil is an ideal source of fats to be used in the ketogenic diet. It can develop ketosis more rapidly.
Research done so far have concluded that Ketogenic diet cause the cancer cells to starve. This mechanism gained a lot of popularity in medicine and were being studied to develop such drugs that resemble the effects of ketogenic diet. The reason researchers want to replace this diet with drugs is its restrictive nature and problems in breaking the sugar and processed carbs addiction in people.
Ketogenic diet should be followed as it provides the benefits of fighting cancer, limiting the seizures and Alzheimer’s disease, controlling diabetes and helping with the weight loss, etc.
The story of a man Joe Mancaruso shows that he fought his stage 4 lung cancer by using ketogenic diet along with exercise and positive living. His doctors suggested that he had six months to live and advised his chemotherapy. He was also a previous survivor of testicular cancer in 1985. He refused the chemotherapy to live his life better during the 6 months. He put himself on a diet rich in fats. Now he is found to be free of cancer.
