Podcast - Miriam Kalamian Leading The Charge In The Keto For Cancer Movement
Listen in today as Jimmy and Miriam chat about her new book Keto for Cancer: Ketogenic Metabolic Therapy as a Targeted Nutritional Strategy, treating cancer with a ketogenic diet, how the thinking about traditional cancer treatments is changing, strategies for disease prevention, and much more.
Miriam Kalamian from DietaryTherapies.com is a board certified nutrition consultant, educator, and author specializing in the implementation of ketogenic therapies. Inspired by the work of Thomas N. Seyfried, PhD, Miriam draws on a decade of experience to provide comprehensive guidelines that specifically address the many diet and lifestyle challenges associated with a cancer diagnosis.
Miriam is a leading voice in the keto movement. Her passion for helping others implement this diet comes directly from her personal experience. Her son Raffi was diagnosed with a brain tumor in December 2004. Standard of care therapies failed to stop the relentless progression of his disease, and it became painfully clear that she needed to switch gears quickly. That is what originally led her to Dr. Thomas Seyfried’s research supporting the use of the ketogenic diet for cancer. Years of research and real world application have led to Miriam’s new book Keto for Cancer.
