Keto for cancer LLC

I am starting on the keto diet and I am referencing dr. Mercola’s way of doing it because I want to cure my LLC . I am not doing this for the weight loss but for improving my white blood count. It all starts by the food we eat.

I am also using KD to fend off cancer.  Level of ketosis is important to me–Seyfried wants ketones at 3-6 and I have trouble getting there despite very low carbs and high fat diet.   I found these books helpful…Keto Clarity by Jimmy Moore and Tripping Over the Truth by Travis Christofferson.  Biggest takeaway for me was that conventional medicine sees cancer as genetic disease and keeps failing to find treatments with acceptable side effects.  An alternative is to see cancer as a metabolic disease with treatments that begin with how we eat and treat ourselves.  Since this alternative makes no money for “big pharma”, it gets too little research.  So, we, as individuals, need to find our own paths.

As a ten year cancer survivor myself I highly recommend the book “Cancer as a Metabolic Disease” by Dr. Thomas Seyfried.   https://www.amazon.com/Cancer-Metabolic-Disease-Management-Prevention/dp/0470584920/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1499328436&sr=1-1&keywords=seyfried+cancer+as+a+metabolic+disease

It is dense scientific reading but well worth the effort.

My best wishes to you for your recovery.

    Did you beat cancer through the keto diet?

    I did the conventional surgery and chemo route because that was all I knew at the time. I started doing research into this subject as I was sitting there bald headed and bored. I firmly believe though that this diet is a big part of why I have been cancer free for ten years.

I’ve been doing this for a couple yrs due to being diagnosed w/ a low grade brain tumor.  Try intermittent fasting to raise your blood keytone levels.  Also calorie restriction helps me elevate mine.  I found http://www.diabetes.co.uk/blood-sugar-converter.html <this website to convert the glucose units to mmol/L & when divided by keytone level should be 1 or below (as per Seyfried’s optimal therapeutic glucose-keytone index).  I find drinking a lg coffee for breakfast & lunch loaded with coconut oil, mct oil powder, heavy cream & a packet of Splenda get me through the day.  Then for dinner choose your own adventure.  I have found my keytone levels are highest just prior to dinner & glucose get very low.  Your keystones don’t necessarily need to be high (from what I understand) as long as glucose is low.

Hope this helps & any tips you or anyone have that may help improve my tactics please let me know.

Sorry I meant a packet of stevia not Splenda, thanks & good looking out.  Also use an emulsion blender (one I have is called smart stic & works great & easy cleanup)  to froth the coffee mixture.

Sorry for that double post;)

    I tried it for weight lose but found it helped my energy and attitude~mood. I will never go back. Weight lose has, however, eluded me.

It has helped my energy and mood as well but I’m not losing any weight either.  I only have 20 pounds to lose but it’s not happening.  So frustrating!  But like you, I won’t go back.

    Steve, sounds like you are really on the right track! It would be great if you could switch to Stevia versus Splenda. In my opinion the liquid Stevia, especially for your coffee is even easier then little packets of powder. :)
