About this course

Learn about the cancer-fighting properties of a plant-based keto diet. Find out how decreasing the “food” supply for cancer cells and starving them can greatly improve the effectiveness of you cancer care practices. 

Cancer cells require a large amount of glucose to satisfy their energy needs and have demonstrated increased glucose metabolism compared with normal cells. But if a cancer cell can't get the glucose it needs, it will switch to getting its energy from fatty acids, glutamine or other "food" pathways. This type of diet is now being considered an adjunct therapy in addition to chemotherapy and radiation, boosting the efficacy of these treatments while also nourishing the body and starving and weakening cancer at its core. 

The vegan ketogenic diet is proposed as a potential adjunct therapy by exploiting these food pathways to starve the cancer and weaken it so that targeted kill phase therapies are more effective. This is a practical discussion of how this approach works and how to implement it in clinical care.
