How A Ketogenic Diet May Prevent Cancer

The ketogenic diet is not a fad. It’s not just a weight loss diet either, even though there’s a lot of hype and marketing directed at getting people onboard the “keto train.” While the ketogenic diet is great for weight loss, and great at helping to stabilize insulin levels and fight off type 2 diabetes, one of the chief reasons to adopt a ketogenic diet is because of what it will do to help fight cancer. Dr. Joseph Mercola who was one of the earliest proponents of the ketogenic diet makes this case in his book “Fat for Fuel.” As Dr. Mercola illustrates in his book, the modern American diet isn’t just filled with too many carbohydrates… Protein is a...

Guess What “Too Much” Coffee Does To You

  One of the beverages health professionals like myself are asked about frequently is coffee. Because coffee is a drug (well, caffeine is a drug) and it obviously has stimulatory properties, people can’t help but think it’s bad for you. Makes sense, right? If it makes your heart race and you can’t function without it then it’s got to be bad for you, right? Especially if you drink a lot of it through the day. Not so fast health conscious reader. The truth is because coffee is such a popular beverage (Americans drink 146 billion cups annually) it’s been the subject of a massive number of studies. In fact, It may be the most well-studied beverage on the planet, even more...

Interesting Link Between Probiotics And Cancer

In my office, one of the methods I always mention for helping improve overall health is boosting gut health. I’d be willing to guess many of you reading this have probably learned over the past few years that the health of your gut is linked to your total health. It’s why getting good bacteria, known to improve gut health, into your body is so popular now.  Understandably, most people associate improved gut health with less gas and bloat. And that’s a correct association to make. Plenty of Americans who have improved their gut health find their stomach feels better and they break wind a lot less. Many of their spouses notice this too. :) The cool thing about probiotics and gut...

New Study Shows THIS Leads to 41 % of Cancer

  Cancer is the bane of our collective existence in the 20th century. It seems like it won’t leave us, and part of that may be because of something that’s happened in the 20th century. For the past several decades researchers have long suspected the formation of cancer was anything but genetic. And while our genes certainly play a large role in our health, and in particular cancer, it would seem the environment you live in, as well as the things you put inside your body, can have just as big an effect. And that means our diet - what we put in our body - plays a HUGE role in contributing to cancer. Looking at a recently published report out of...

This Diet Was Shown To Help Fight Cancer

  When most people hear the word “diet” they think of things like restrictive food recommendations...or kicking X type of food in favor of another. That’s an unfortunate way of thinking about diet, as a diet should simply be a predictable way of eating. Here in America, most people subscribe to the SAD, or the Standard American Diet. This diet consists of foods found in boxes which are filled with artificial ingredients, additives, and chemicals.  This is a diet that I, along with many other practitioners, strongly suspect is contributing to a long list of diseases and conditions. Part of the reason we assume this is because when we look at other diets, we see those diets actually help fight diseases....
