Editorial Reviews

About the Author

I am just a regular girl with a very soft spot for sick children and with a very analytical mind...what characterizes me the most is that when I set my mind on doing something, I don't give up until I succeed. I love to learn, I am self motivated and I cannot help it, I am a leader. I am a firm believer that if there is a will there is a way, and if you believe you can achieve something, you will. I created my own -optimized for health- ketogenic diet after facing aggressive breast cancer. As per described in my book, I starved the cancer using my ketogenic diet.

The Ketogenic diet is an important topic for anyone battling cancer, so this is a useful book to learn from someone who has had direct and practical experience.

Format: Paperback
When cancer survivor and ketogenic diet health proponent Elaine Cantin received the devastating diagnosis that she had breast cancer, her doctors wanted to put her on an aggressive treatment of chemotherapy to deal with it. But this didn't sound good to her at all after watching many of her own family members go down this same road with little success. When her tumor continued to grow in size, Elaine's doctors insisted on emergency surgery and radiation treatments. But she had been already been learning about the ketogenic diet for epilepsy and began implementing her own modified version of this nutritional plan. Within weeks, her tumor shrunk and shrunk until it completely disappeared. Her oncologist was stunned and declared her cancer-free.

After seeing the tremendous success her ketogenic diet had curing her breast cancer, Elaine decided to start using her diet on her son with Type 1 diabetes to see if they could reduce his dependence on insulin. When he sticks with the diet, his blood sugars remain stable without the need for taking insulin. Elaine has documented all of the information she has learned about her version of the ketogenic diet in this book The Cantin Ketogenic Diet: For Cancer, Type I Diabetes & Other Ailments.

"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food" and that is exactly what Elaine Cantin describes in this book.

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 that has remarkable healing properties. This book is a helpful resource for anyone interested in using a healthier version of a ketogenic diet for cancer prevention/treatment, epilepsy and neurological disorders associated with impaired brain metabolism (e.g. Alzhemier's disease). Elaine has identified many potential food allergens (dairy, soy, gluten) and designed a diet that eliminates these foods.

I highly recommend this book.

I also recommend "Cancer as a Metabolic Disease" by Professor Thomas Seyfried..

and "Alzheimer's disease; What if there was a cure?" by Dr. Mary Newport..

I could not put this book down. It is a wonderful story of a patient and mom and sister (Elaine is all three) taking charge of health and healing for herself and family. I would recommend it to anyone who suffers with cancer or diabetes. The book is very practical and helpful for those with cancer and diabetes. It also has a wonderful miracle of her sister's healing using coconut oil. Amazing book and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to know more than what conventional medicine has to offer.

my only wish is that she had been more specific in her amounts. There is so much to try to grasp and when you have a death sentence on your head, you don't have a lot of time for research and trying to figure out grams carb amounts. i have visited several websites looking for specific amounts and they all bark back grams. i must be an old redneck... i just want to know how many almonds or olives. other than that minor irritation, i'm very grateful for her mountain of research and positive response to inquiry. i joined her facebook group and she immed. sent me more websites where i could inquire. This book could save my life and that is saying alot.

My wife was diagnosed with Acenic Cell Carcinoma. She started the Cantin Ketogenic Diet and her tumor shrank. She had her surgery as scheduled, but we believe that if we had delayed the surgery another week, the tumor would have disappeared altogether.

This book is well worth reading. Elaine appears to have researched things exceptionally well. Very impressive bibliography. Lots of food for thought (sorry about the pun). The writing style isn't what you would expect, but is written with great enthusiasm and passion, and, to be fair, the Writer doesn't claim to be a professional author. I was left with a lot of questions, but this book gave me an excellent starting point. If you have cancer, don't hesitate, you won't be wasting your money.

I was diagnosted with Endometrial Cancer in 2010. I was devastated! I got a hysterectomy and the surgeon told me that my lymph nodes were clear, so I assumed that it was over. Foolish me! 6 months later when I was scanned, they found Endometrial Cancer in my lungs. I went through a year of Chemotherapy, and every clinical trial that was out there, but nothing worked. So the surgeon wanted to try another chemo, but I said NO! I got this Ketogenic Diet book, and now I feel 100% better. I have an appointment with the surgeon on July 15th after not having chemo since the end of March 2013. I am hoping that either the tumors have not progressed or they have gone away. Either way, I am convinced that this book is worth trying. Oh and by the way, I lost 15 LBS<
