In early 2012, I started to see some chatter online about the ketogenic diet as a potential anti-cancer diet.I’ve understood for many years that different diets work for different people, and I was intrigued by the ketogenic diet for cancer.Most natural cancer healing protocols involve a radical change of diet and lifestyle that includes overdosing on nutrition with juicing, lots of raw plant food, little to no animal food, supplements, and herbal cleanses along with detox protocols like coffee enemas, etc.

I know a lot of long-term natural survivors, but I don’t know of any long-term survivors who have used a ketogenic diet to heal. I am perfectly ok with being proven wrong, and if so, will freely admit it, but it will be at least 10 years before we know if this really works for people, long-term.

I’ve seen studies where rats on a ketogenic diet lived a little longer, then died… And I’ve seen patients try the ketogenic diet and it fail them. Having said all that, if the plant-based nutritional protocol that I and so many others have used successfully to heal, did not work, I would certainly be open to try the ketogenic diet. Here is a short interview with Jonathan Landsman of Natural Health 365 in which Dr.

This coincided with the recurrence of cancer in someone I knew who was promoting the ketogenic diet (as effective). William Donald Kelley’s protocol which includes high doses of pancreatic enzymes and individualized diets depending on body type and cancer type.

It appeared to have some positive short term results for some people (shrinking or slowing down tumors), but I was beginning to have some doubts about it working long term. I have huge respect for them, not because of their theories, but because they are getting RESULTS, including reversing “incurable” stage four cancers. Gonzalez wrote an eight part article series for Natural Health 365 on the history and failure of the ketogenic diet for cancer. Gonzalez’s nutritional cancer treatment expertise is much deeper than ANYONE currently promoting the ketogenic diet for cancer, because unlike anyone else promoting it, he actually treats cancer patients with nutrition every day.

Gonzalez explains why he thinks a ketogenic diet doesn’t work for cancer. Gonzalez uses nutrition to treat cancer, and puts his patients on a variety of diets based on their cancer and other factors.

If the ketogenic diet worked, this is a doctor who would be using it. Gonzalez masterfully dismantles the ketogenic diet for cancer in the lengthy article below.In both laboratory and preliminary human trials, interleukin-2 – like interferon before it, a natural product secreted by lymphocytes that stimulates other cancer-fighting immune cells into action – had performed almost magically against even the most aggressive of cancers, such as metastatic melanoma and metastatic kidney cancer. Rosenberg’s “miracle” was everywhere, in the print media, on the local and national news, and in an extended Newsweek story appearing December 16, 1985, with white-coated Dr.Rosenberg on the cover peering intently at the world.I lived through a far more extraordinary situation just five years later.I had graduated medical school by that point and was living in Florida, finishing my immunology fellowship under Robert A.This uneasiness persisted for many months and I could not shake it. There are thousands of people out there who have healed cancer naturally.
