Supercharge Your Cancer Fight with This FAT Secret

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

Practicing medicine is all about teamwork. Or it should be.

When it’s being done RIGHT, it’s a collaboration between the doctor and patient. But when I first met Andrew, he wasn’t so sure he wanted to join forces with me.

Andrew had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer before coming to see me. And as he sat there in my office, it was clear the ONLY reason he was there was because his wife Mary had brought him.

Mary was enthusiastic about using alternative medicine to enhance Andrew’s traditional cancer treatments. Andrew wasn’t so sure.

He told me he was following his mainstream oncologist’s instructions to the letter and planned on continuing to do so. And I surprised him by telling him that was always a good idea.

But I went on to explain that natural and drug-free approaches could SUPPORT his current treatments. And that in some cases, they can even ENHANCE them.

Suddenly he was all ears. And when I told Andrew about a delicious fat-focused secret that could BOOST his chemo treatments and ease their side effects, he couldn’t wait to get started.

And today, I’m going to share that same secret with you.

Recently, some mainstream cancer researchers have focused on the ketogenic (keto) diet.

When you practice keto, you drastically reduce the number of carbohydrates you eat and replace them with delicious fats.

Now, I get it. Thanks to conventional medicine’s obsession with vilifying fat, that might sound a bit shocking at first. But there’s plenty of evidence that putting your body into ketosis, where it’s forced to burn fat as fuel, isn’t just healthy… it can be healing.

And now, researchers say when cancer patients combine a keto diet with chemotherapy, they get some incredible benefits.

Not only can the combo make chemo treatments MORE effective, but it can also help ease some of the treatment’s worst side effects, including nausea and loss of appetite.

A mainstream class of cancer drugs—phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) inhibitors—has failed multiple trials. But when combined with the keto diet, they suddenly became more effective.

Researchers believe the keto diet works because cancer cells use sugar as fuel. When you “go keto,” you eliminate their fuel source, causing the cells to starve to death.

But the benefits don’t end there. The boost in good proteins from a keto diet can help you maintain muscle mass. Plus, “going keto” can send your levels of powerful immune cells called “T-cells” soaring.

The bottom line? If you’re battling cancer, switching to a keto diet could help…

  • minimize chemo side effects
  • support your immune system
  • make chemotherapy more effective
  • maintain muscle mass

If you or someone you care about is fighting cancer, talk to your oncologist about switching to a ketogenic diet TODAY.

P.S. Focusing on fat doesn’t just fight cancer alone. Recent research shows a keto-style diet can also help you battle back against Alzheimer’s. I’ve got all the incredible details here.
