Ketogenic Diet in Combination with Calorie Restriction and Hyperbaric Treatment Offer New Hope in Quest for Non-Toxic Cancer Treatment

Story at-a-glance -

  • A mounting body of research suggests most cancers are highly responsive to therapeutic ketosis—a natural physiologic state induced during prolonged states of decreased glucose—in combination with calorie restriction
  • One way to achieve this is to use a ketogenic diet that eliminates all but non-starchy vegetable carbohydrates, replacing them with high amounts of healthy fats and adequate amounts of high-quality protein
  • Healthy cells have the metabolic flexibility to adapt from using glucose to using ketone bodies. Cancer cells lack this metabolic flexibility, so when you eliminate carbs, which are metabolized to glucose, you effectively starve cancer of its primary fuel source.
  • Intermittent fasting, where you gradually restrict the window of time during which you eat food down to about six to eight hours per day aids in the transition from burning carbs to burning fat
  • The ketogenic diet by itself can extend survival in animal models of metastatic cancer, but recent research shows that when it’s combined with hyperbaric oxygen therapy three times per week, there is a significant additive effect
