Anti-Cancer Quick Start Guide
This guide is GAPS, Ketogenic, low oxalate, and lectin-free compliant.
Within this guide are successful methods that one can incorporate no matter what treatment they are pursuing. It is based on the current dietary research, which is unfortunately not well known.
A brief introduction:
In 1922, Braunstein noted that glucose disappeared from the urine of patients with diabetes after being diagnosed with cancer, suggesting that glucose is recruited to cancerous areas where it is consumed at higher than normal rates. During that same time, Nobel laureate Otto Warburg found that cancer cells thrive on glycolysis, producing high lactate levels, even in the presence of abundant oxygen.
Since that time, we have now learned that there are TWO things that fuel cancer cells, which enables them to survive and thrive in your body. Namely Glucose and Glutamine! For this reason, my anticancer Quick Start Guide reduces both of these sources of “energy,” thus causing cancer cells to starve.
Cancer cells are different from healthy cells in many ways. One of their traits is that they have ten times more insulin receptors on their cellular surface. Thus, cancer cells will gorge themselves on glucose (sugar) and continue to thrive and spread. This discovery is supported by the fact that the lowest survival rate in cancer patients is among those with the highest blood sugar levels. Note that to a cancer cell, starch (think rice or bread or sweet potatoes) and glucose are one in the same (starch turns into glucose in the body). If you reduce your sugar intake but eat corn chips, those cancer cells are still being fed.
Something else about cancer cells is they have damaged mitochondria and cannot create energy from aerobic respiration. Cancer cells cannot metabolize fatty acids for energy.
This approach switches the body from a glucose energy source to a fatty acid energy source. This restriction will remove the energy source of cancer cells, causing their natural death. In addition to the ketogenic approach, when combined with intermittent fasting (such as eating your last meal at 6pm and not eating again until noon), it increases ketone production and starves cancer cells more.
This 25-page guide includes all the practical knowledge to get started to include a meal plan, food list, dietary instructions, and lifestyle instructions.
