Do You Need a Second Opinion?

Published by on June 16, 2021 1 Comment

Your time is precious, so I won’t beat around the bush. The answer is… YES! You 100%, absolutely, positively need a second opinion. Cancer is not a simple disease.

Can a Keto Diet Help You to Beat Cancer?

Published by on May 12, 2021 | Share your thoughts

Can a keto diet help your body to fight cancer? The answer, as usual, is not black-and-white… Our cancer expert and research scientist, Alex Rolland, made a video to help you understand: Watch here! First, let’s get on the same page… What’s a keto diet anyway? Basically, it’s when you greatly reduce your intake of carbs (both simple and complex) and increase your intake of high-fat foods.  What happens is that your body runs out of simple carbs to produce glucose…so instead, your body ends up using fats to produce glucose. In this process, the byproduct is a ketone. (Hence the nickname, ‘keto’.) One of the main benefits of a keto diet is that it causes you to burn fat, so people often lose weight...
