For the last couple of years, the Ketogenic diet has been seen as a help (and cure) for those with cancer (the hypothesis is that it starves cancer cells of their primary fuel, glucose, and thus kills the cancer), however, according to one very famous, and now sadly dead, doctor, that might not be the case. While the keto diet worked initially, it didn’t seem to work in healing cancer long term (it initially shrank or slowed down tumors but for many, they came back).


In October of 2013, Drs. Gonzalez and Linda Isaacs, MD revealed they had remarkable success treating cancer patients with a non-toxic nutritional protocol that incorporated “some Gerson principles along with the late Dr. William Donald Kelley’s protocol which includes high doses of pancreatic enzymes and individualized diets depending on body type and cancer type.”

Dr. Gonzalez would later go on to write an eight-part article series for Natural Health 365 on the history and failure of the ketogenic diet for cancer.

Check out the video below where Dr. Gonzalez explains why he thinks the ketogenic diet doesn’t work for cancer. Once you’ve watched the video, click here to read Dr. Gonzalez pick apart the ketogenic diet for cancer. According to Chris, “This is not a scientific rebuttal, quibbling over theories about Warburg, glycosis, cell respiration, and ATP, rather it is a thoughtful, well-reasoned reflection from a doctor who has been in the trenches of nutritional cancer treatment for nearly three decades. His real world experience, insider knowledge, historical perspective and common sense put him head and shoulders above the lab-rat researchers and theorizers, no offense guys/gals.”

Honestly, if you plan on living a long time, you’ll want to read the article.
