NOTE: We apologize for the moments of “noise” during the interview. Andrew used the internal microphone on his computer and he nervously slid it around as he was talking. His story was much too powerful not to share even with these sounds.

The use of ketogenic diets in the treatment of various kinds of cancers has been a hot subject within research circles for the past few years. But it’s the compelling personal stories of individuals with cancer who are in desperate circumstances feeling helpless by the conventional treatment of chemotherapy and other cancer drugs who finally find success in nutritional therapy that makes this worth taking a closer look. Last week we shared the inspiring story of an eye cancer survivor from Dublin, Ireland named Patricia Daly who implemented a ketogenic diet to help her body heal. And today we have an even more miraculous ketogenic cancer success story in a man from London, England named Andrew Scarborough from the “My Brain Cancer Story” blog who was diagnosed with an incurable brain cancer along with epilepsy. But Andrew didn’t let that stop him from researching the metabolic theory of cancer to keep his grim diagnosis at bay.

Listen in as Jimmy and Andrew talk about his graduate schooling in nutrition where he learned about ketogenic diets, the migraines he started dealing with during his master’s training, how doctors dismissed his headaches as stress-induced pain, the progression of his symptoms that first took his speech away, gave him “crushing headaches,” involuntary spasms and pressure in his head, intense pain, and then a life-threatening grand mal seizure causing him to pass out, the slightly larger than a golf ball tumor they found in his brain, why doctors didn’t immediately think it was cancer, the moment they told him that his cancer was incurable, how the doctors missing it put him at greater risk, how long they told him he had to live, how he had already actively took his carbs down and seeking to be in ketosis to control his epilepsy, how Professor Thomas Seyfried‘s book Cancer As A Metabolic Disease helped him understand ketogenic diets for cancer, the side effects he felt taking the medications and chemotherapy before he went full-on ketogenic, why he sees his epilepsy as a blessing, his preference for a non-traditional ketogenic diet, the problem he experiences with the salicylates in plant-based foods, why he is concerned about his IGF-1 levels, the micronutrients that leech out when you take epilepsy medications (including B vitamins, calcium, magnesium, and Vitamin D), the major shifts he made in his diet that are typical of most ketogenic diets, how he made up for the micronutrients he was missing from not eating plant matter, how he got quality organ meats and animal fats from grass-fed animals cheaply, how his neurologists were “flabbergasted” by his success in beating his brain cancer, a typical day of eating for his cancer-fighting ketogenic diet, the hyperbaric chamber therapy he is now using to help continue the healing of his brain, the Ketopet therapy for dogs with cancer funded by Quest Nutrition, the therapeutic level of blood ketones for cancer treatment, whether he uses exogenous sources of ketones, how 90 percent of his diet is fat from mostly fatty insects like wax worms, why he prefers to eat the worms raw now, the fasting protocols he has engaged in since his cancer diagnosis, and his JustGiving fundraising page for brain cancer research.

When our host Jimmy Moore moderated a prestigious panel about the role of ketogenic diets in the treatment of cancer at the Ancestral Health Symposium in 2014, it was merely the beginning of a revolution happening in the treatment of cancer. We’ve been sharing about this topic quite a bit over the years beginning with the work of ketogenic cancer researcher Dr. Thomas Seyfried back in 2009, another ketogenic cancer researcher named Dr. Colin Champ in 2012, and keto cancer counselor Miriam Kalamian in 2013–and today we have a real life example of a eye cancer survivor named Patricia Daly, a Fully Qualified Nutritional Therapist from Dublin, Ireland who is now helping others use the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet principles that quite literally saved her life! She’s authored an e-book to assist other cancer patients called Practical Keto Meal Plans for Cancer.

Listen in as Jimmy and Patricia talk about her 2008 diagnosis of a rare form of cancer in the eye, the disappointing answers she got from her oncologist about her cancer, how this experience got her to delve deeply into nutrition, what juicing for cancer is supposed to do for patients (and why it doesn’t work as well for many), her cancer relapse experience in 2012, why her doctor told her she would become blind, why she turned to the ketogenic diet for her cancer, the things she saw in her vision that showed her how close she was to going blind, her November 2015 “scare” that helped her realize the cancer is gone, why she no longer regularly tests for blood ketones anymore, the physical manifestations of being in a constant state of ketosis, what her ketogenic diet looks like on a plate, the role of intermittent fasting in her health plan, why consuming organ meats is so important, the mental struggle she dealt with adding fat back into her diet, when she studied nutrition to use as a profession, her memory of helping her first cancer client (who had exactly the same cancer as she did), the Alchemy business in Dublin, Ireland that serves bone broth, her upcoming new book about low-carb ketogenic diets on April 8, 2016, and her Keto For You online course.

967: Amy Berger Examines The Ketogenic Antidote To Alzheimer’s Disease

One of the most debilitating neurodegenerative diseases of our day is Alzheimer’s disease. Within research circles, this condition is widely known as “Type 3 diabetes” because of the blood sugar and insulin connection to the disease. For a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition named Amy Berger, she has been very interested in the indelible relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and nutrition. What she discovered was how a real foods-based low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is the key to controlling high insulin levels that are leading to the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease. She’s written a compelling new e-book about this subject entitled The Alzheimer’s Antidote: A Comprehensive Nutrition And Lifestyle Strategy To Fight Alzheimer’s Disease, Memory Loss And Cognitive Decline and Amy and Jimmy dig deeply into this topic in today’s episode!

Listen in as Jimmy and Amy talk about how she followed all the typical nutrition advice and wasn’t seeing results, why the low-carb message doesn’t get more traction despite the overwhelming science supporting it, how scary it is to start eating more fat after years of fat-phobia, what got her interested in the subject of Alzheimer’s disease, how she made the connection between insulin, glucose, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s, former podcast guest Dr. Larry McCleary called Alzheimer’s Type 3 diabetes many years ago, the mechanism about how Alzheimer’s disease develops and progresses with a high-carb diet, the ApoE 4 genotype makes you more susceptible to getting Alzheimer’s disease with a poor carb-rich diet, doctors think people with Alzheimer’s need to keep the brain active and take drugs, the drugs created to remove the amyloid plaque that doesn’t fix Alzheimer’s, why younger people are getting early onset Alzheimer’s now, how we’ve been scared away from consuming the very foods that could protect the brain, the very gradual development of Alzheimer’s and dementia, the statin drugs and prescription antacids are a huge problem in neurodegenerative disease development, the story of Dr. Mary Newport treating her husband with early onset Alzheimer’s disease, why a real foods-based low-carb diet is the best way to do this, and the non-diet ways you can improve your brain health.
