At least one in four Americans is impacted by type I (T1) or II (T2) diabetes or a pre-diabetic (PD) condition. While you may have been told that diabetic conditions are incurable (perhaps even by a doctor), scientific research shows that nearly all cases of T2 diabetes and PD conditions can be corrected through dietary interventions alone (1). Unfortunately, the majority of conventional medical practitioners view PD and T2 as a problem associated with high blood sugar levels alone. While it is true that high blood sugar is a symptom of any form of diabetes, it completely ignores the underling cause and therefore misses the mark when it comes to finding a treatment protocol that actually addresses the root issue.
Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and Parkinson’s Disease (PD) are neurological disorders which have increased in prevalence and are plaguing millions of Americans with dramatic symptoms that seem to be unrelated. Each of these aliments, however, results from damage to nerve cells and conventional medicine offers little in the way of long term hope for anyone suffering from either AD or PD. Once damaged, brain cells have a difficult time utilizing glucose for energy in the normal manner and damage tends to increase as the condition progresses. In response to this medical crisis, many professionals have begun to advocate a ketogenic diet to reduce symptoms and promote healing of the cellular damage which ultimately underlies the development of the neurological condition at hand (1).
The ideal internal environment for the growth of cancer cells results from a diet high in carbohydrates and protein. Dietary carbohydrates provide unwanted invaders plenty of fuel for growth, while proteins provide the building blocks needed for production of new cancer cells. Ironically, this type of diet is precisely what the majority of Americans eat on a daily basis. Is it any wonder why cancer impacts more than 40 percent of the nation’s population (1) and is the second most common cause of death (2)? Doesn’t it logically follow that a diet which restricts cancer cells’ access to the fuel they need can halt the growth of virtually any type of cancer? More and more experts believe so, and a growing body of evidence exists to support this conclusion (3).
