If you’ve been following Cassie’s Alkaline Paleo Diet Blog, you’d have read her latest post on my broken leg, atherosclerosis and Alzheimers’.
It’s all good news, but the big news is that I gave up my coco oil supplementation because I couldn’t get it here in Italy. Usually, this is bad news because within a week my symptoms re-emerged, but this time I remained sharp of mind.
So what was the difference?
The BIG difference is that I am fully into my alkaline paleo diet and have made the leap to a ketogenic state of metabolism. The alkaline paleo diet naturally allows you to change from feeding your body and brain with glucose to naturally produced (by the body) ketones. I’ve sighted studies that postulate that ketones are the natural food of the brain and that amyloid plaque may actually be the result of the oxidating effect of glucose in the brain.
But that’s not even the BIG news. I have just finished listening to Jimmy Moore’s (Living the Lo-Carb La Vida) interview of Philadelphia physician Dr. Colin Champ
Dr Champ is currently involved in studying a topic that is very near and dear to his heart. The hot topic is “Ketogenic Diets & Cancer” which is gaining a lot of traction amongst researchers looking for nutritional solutions to this horrible disease.
Dr. Champ is completing his specialty training in radiation oncology and has a keen interest in the dietary effects of carbohydrate restriction on the prevention and treatment of cancer. The connection between our modern American diet, obesity and cancer has been quite remarkable, and Dr. Champ hopes that the work he is doing can help people fight all three.
I got very excited when he began talking about the work of Dr Otto Warburg, becasue Dr Warburg, Nobel Prize winner, has stated that cancer cannot live in an alkaline environment, and much of Dr Champ’s talk relates to Warburg’s work, and I began to see all sorts of connections with and Cassie’s my diet . You may have already read his recent review article published in the scientific journal International Journal Of Breast Cancer entitled “Weight Gain, Metabolic Syndrome, and Breast Cancer Recurrence: Are Dietary Recommendations Supported by the Data?” and we’re seeing some truly incredible health benefits from carbohydrate-restricted diets for people dealing with this terrible disease.
Dr. Champ took on so many excellent questions about how ketogenic diets may play a role in the treatment of cancers. Listen in to hear what Dr. Colin Champ had to say about ketogenic diets and cancer here.. and I’d love to hear your comments.
A little about Jimmy Moore: he runs the biggest low carb blog in the world, all on donations, with 2.5 million visitors per month. He has his own recovery story and is on his own ketogenic diet. And here’s some more news. He is coming to Australia, and even to little Byron Bay. Here’s his schedule. I suggest if you want to see him, and talk to Australia’s best paleo, low carb and ketogenic diet experts.book soon because Dr Rod Tayler, who is organising it, tells me it’s filling fast..
