Hippocrates once said, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food,” and that is exactly what Elaine Cantin describes in her book, The Cantin Ketogenic Diet For Cancer, Type 1 Diabetes and Other Ailments. We could not agree more!
Elaine describes a personal journey about developing and testing a modified ketogenic diet for cancer treatment. She developed guidelines for a healthy and palatable ketogenic diet with striking similarities to the diabetic-alkaline lifestyle. Her diet resulted in remarkable healing properties for her, her son with type 1 diabetes and others.
This book is a helpful resource for anyone interested in using a healthier version of a ketogenic diet for cancer prevention and treatment, epilepsy and neurological disorders associated with impaired brain metabolism (e.g. Alzheimer’s disease). Elaine has identified many potential food allergens (dairy, soy, gluten) and designed a diet that eliminates these foods. While we go further in a few areas in the elimination of problematic foods for those with type 1 diabetes, Elaine’s diet is right on track for a healthier lifestyle that helps put the body in a position of strength to fight disease and provide better living.
Here is what Elaine says about her book:
“This book is about my son’s journey with type I diabetes and my own journey with aggressive breast cancer. It is about how I linked type I diabetes with epilepsy and how this helped me link cancer with epilepsy as well. I modified the traditional ketogenic diet used at Johns Hopkins Medical Center to treat epilepsy. I then used my own version of the diet to make my breast cancer tumor disappear in about two weeks. It is also about using my modified ketogenic diet for my son who is a type I diabetic, and him being able to eat without needing any insulin and without doing any calorie restrictions. This is my diet of hope -along with the research that comes from my heart- that I am sharing with you.”
Elaine’s ample supply of research, recipes, supplements, and testimonials to support her diet will be a great encouragement to others who wish to embark on the road less travelled in healthcare; a road of self-empowerment and hopefully for many self-healing. It is not written in typical literary style but much more matter of fact. Don’t let the literary style cause you to miss the forest for the trees.
