Dr. Nasha Winters discusses the use of the Ketogenic Diet in the treatment of cancer

 

The ketogenic diet―which relies on the body’s production of ketones as fuel―is the centerpiece of the book, The Metabolic Approach to Cancer by Dr. Nasha Winters and Jess Higgins Kelly. Further, Winters and Kelley explain how to harness the anticancer potential of phytonutrients abundant in low-glycemic plant and animal foods to address the 10 hallmarks of cancer―an approach Western medicine does with drug based therapies. Dr. Nasha Winters' comprehensive book on the individualized treatment of cancer includes a unique diet - the ketogenic diet which has its roots in the early 1900s. The use of an optimized, genetically-tuned diet shuns grains, legumes, sugar, genetically modified foods, pesticides, and synthetic ingredients while emphasizing whole, wild, local, organic, fermented, heirloom, and low-glycemic foods and herbs. Other components of their approach include harm-reductive herbal therapies like mistletoe (considered the original immunotherapy and common in European cancer care centers) and cannabinoids (which shrink tumors and increase quality of life, yet are illegal in more than half of the United States).
