The ketogenic diet might be able to help some cases of cancer.

A recent meta-analysis suggests that people with gliomas (a tumor in the brain or spinal cord), in particular, can benefit from using keto as an alternative or complementary therapy. In the study, the researchers looked at the data provided by 32 glioma patients.

The best response was in a 3-year-old girl who had complete remission after five years of treatment with a ketogenic diet. Two other patients also experienced complete remission after the diet, while another experienced cancer progression after stopping the diet.

These are incredible results, but we must remember that these results are due to a combination of a ketogenic diet and conventional treatment, not the ketogenic diet alone.

If you or a loved one who has cancer want to try using keto, ask your doctor about including the ketogenic diet in your cancer treatment program, and use for support and guidance through your recovery process.
