Can You Treat Cancer with Low Carb?

Can a ketogenic diet be helpful in cancer treatment? There are many reasons to believe this, e.g. that nearly all cancer cells burn lots of sugar, and grow more under the influence of high insulin levels. You could say that most cancer cells are addicted to carbs, for optimal growth.

I sat down with Dr. Angela Poff, one of the top experts in the field, and it turned into a very enlightening interview.

Watch a part of it above (transcript). The full interview is available (with captions and transcript) with a free trial or membership:

She Was Saved by Ketosis

To make it easier to track his ketone levels – and being an engineer – he then developed the first ketone breath analyser, called Ketonix.

He’s joined in this presentation by Alison Gannett who have used a ketogenic diet to combat terminal brain cancer, another potentially very life-changing use of the diet.

Could we have been wrong in believing that cancer is simply a genetic disease? Could it also be a metabolic disease? And if so, could a ketogenic diet be used as a part of the treatment, at least for some cancers?

Using a Ketogenic Diet to Stop Brain Tumor Growth

14897942-large

Pablo received devastating news at age 25: He had a terminal brain tumor and only between 6 and 9 months to live. Doctors suggested chemotherapy – despite no hope of a cure in his case.

After studying online, Pablo chose to implement a ketogenic diet instead. Two years later, he’s still miraculously alive. What’s more, the tumor is apparently not even growing.

Plymouth Herald: Pablo, 27, Says His Survival After Terminal Diagnosis Is down to a Special Diet

The idea behind using a ketogenic diet to stop tumor growth is that you can starve it by not feeding it sugar. Plus, lowering growth factors like insulin may also slow down growth. It might work in some instances, and in some not, as outlined in this article which we wrote a few weeks back: Can Low-Carb and Ketogenic Diets Be Helpful in Treating Cancer?.

Note that Pablo is a case where conventional chemotherapy would have a moderate effect at best, with no hope of a cure. In many other situations conventional cancer treatment is very effective, offering excellent odds of beating the disease. Turning down treatment in such cases would be a very bad idea.

However, a ketogenic diet might be a potent weapon to use alongside other cancer treatments, at least in some cases. There would probably be much more research going on if it were a patentable drug instead of a simple diet.
