Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
Being diagnosed with cancer is a terrifying experience.
It doesn’t matter how old you are or where the cancer was found — everyone asks the same two questions.
What are my chances? And what can I do to improve them?
Now researchers say they’ve discovered a special protocol… involving a powerful cancer-busting diet… that can help you fight even the deadliest metastatic cancers.
And it may even improve your survival time by a massive 50 percent.
The key to this cancer breakthrough are all-natural compounds called ketones.
Ketones help the body burn fat instead of sugars and carbs (which can fuel cancer). They are created by the liver in times when your carbohydrate intake is low and help boost your energy and can even improve your memory.
To up your ketone levels, you can follow a ketogenic diet that focuses on high-fat, low-carbohydrate foods. This diet puts your body into a state called ketosis and can cause significant improvements in blood sugar and insulin levels.
So what does this all have to do with cancer?
Well, a recent animal study proves that folks who eat a ketogenic diet and take ketone supplements can slow the growth of existing metastatic cancers, which are responsible for 90 percent of cancer deaths.
For the study, mice with metastatic cancer were split into two groups. One group was fed a standard diet and the other was fed a ketogenic diet. Both groups were also given a ketone supplement.
At the end of the study, the scientists made some incredible discoveries…
Survival times increased by a whopping 50 percent in the ketogenic diet group.
The researchers believe ketones are so effective against cancer cells because they rely on sugar for energy. However, cancer cells are unable to use ketones for energy and to grow.
Choosing to eat a ketogenic diet is a great way to get your body on track to being cancer-free or help fight off any existing cancer cells.
And if you really want to up your cancer-fighting game, you can supplement with ketones. You can pick some up at supplement shops or through online retailers.
