How To Cure Breast Cancer with a Modified Ketogenic Diet | Health Impact News

Elaine Cantin was diagnosed with breast cancer and within one week was rushed into have a surgical lumpectomy. Doctors wanted to immediately begin ‘aggressive’ radiation and chemotherapy and this idea frightened Elaine, as she had seen many family members and friends die from similar treatments. Elaine said, “I thought that if I had to go, I would not be going that way.” Within six months the tumor had regrown in the original spot to the size of a small egg.

Elaine did extensive research and testing with the ketogentic diet used at the John Hopkins Medical Center. She modified the diet to exclude dairy and other allergens, and once on this modified version of the diet, her tumor shrunk to the size of a chickpea in only two weeks! A biopsy of the ‘tumor’ revealed NO CANCER present.

Recently Elaine has been given a clean bill of health as she is considered in ‘complete’ remission – Elaine’s breast cancer is cured!

I found this article interesting as a Health Coach. Take Shape For Life uses the same basic principles of taking the body into a slight dietary ketosis and fat burning stage as Elaine described in her video. In fact, studies on the effectiveness of the Medifast Portion Controlled Meal Replacement (PCMR) program on healthy patient weight loss was done at John Hopkins University.

Although Take Shape For Life cannot claim to be a cure for cancer like Elaine’s diet, recent studies have shown that there is a relationship between unhealthy food consumption, and inflammation and diseases such as cancer. Take Shape For Life’s (PCMR) is a very effective way of putting your body into dietary ketosis, modifying your eating habits and training your body to receive better nutrition.

Food journaling helps with weight loss

Food journaling works. Since I’ve been journaling (Feb 2013) I’ve lost 22 lbs. I’m more aware and conscious of what I’m eating and how much exercise I’m getting on a daily basis. Prior to my journaling, I would just follow a daily schedule in my mind.

I’m very discipline when it comes to following a strict eating plan. My problem was and has always been maintaining the momentum of eating healthy. Like a lot of people out there today who use smart phones, I discovered a couple of great tools to help me keep a convenient journal accessible to me at all times. Rather than having to physically write my progress, foods, drinks and exercise on a note book (that I often didn’t have by my side), I was able to quickly add notes and entries via my smart phone.

Here are a couple of great journaling apps to have on your smart phone. You can also keep track of your entry on your computer too.
