Have you heard of ketosis? In 2015 I wondered if it was the “holy grail” of anti-aging. It’s certainly helpful to avoid sugar whenever possible. But now Dr. Mercola points to some evidence that ketosis may help treat cancer. He writes:
Each and every day, more than 1,600 people prematurely die from cancer in the United States alone and 20,000 worldwide. While the situation can sometimes seem hopeless, there are effective ways to prevent becoming another statistic.
And, as you will soon learn, even late-stage cancer patients have cause for new hope these days. To learn more about nutritional ketosis and the metabolic theory of cancer, I highly recommend listening to the interview I did with Christofferson last year, and to read his book, “Tripping Over the Truth,” which provides the background as to why and how this therapy works, and why the conventional approach to cancer is fatally flawed.
If you’re beyond that point and really want to implement this kind of metabolic therapy, I highly recommend preordering a copy of new book, “Fat for Fuel,” which gives you all the details on how to do that. Anyone that preorders it will have access to my recent 2017 lecture that I have given at several events. Normally these lectures are never posted online. Incidentally, Christofferson was one of the experts who helped edit my book and actually wrote a section on Dr. Rosedale’s work. I’m grateful for all his assistance.
Besides the information in the book, you’ll also find many collaborative supports, including a nine-hour-long free video series that we hope to launch in early May. Miriam Kalamian is also developing a certification course to go along with it through the American College of Nutrition, to have more qualified therapists out there.
This certification will teach any qualified clinician — primarily certified clinical nutritionists but also physicians — how to practically implement nutritional ketosis. Eventually, I expect there will be a virtual army of clinicians available to assist patients with this kind of protocol. Hopefully, at that point we’ll finally start making a dent in cancer statistics.
If you’re looking for the best 100% grass fed to finish meat, US Wellness Meats is where Debbie and I stock up. I’ve been shopping at US Wellness for years and have written about them many times here on the site (never as a paid advertisement mind you). Here’s a brief explanation of the offerings from the US Wellness web site:
US Wellness Meats specializes in nutritionally rich meats. Due to the high demand for ketogenic friendly, higher fat beef, we recently introduced 55% lean beef, ground. This along with our 100% grass-fed, grass-finished beef, bison, lamb and dairy products are essential to the ketogenic diet. We also carry a variety of favorite fats for all those on Paleo and ketogenic diets. Click here for more information on the best choice of meats to reach ketosis quickly.
