Join us for an insightful evening on the power of the Ketogenic Diet with Travis Christofferson, MS hosted by Aubrey Marcus. Travis will present his work on The Ketogenic Diet and its resurrection as an ancient pathway to health, followed by a Q&A session with Aubrey & Travis.
Without question the metabolic therapeutic approaches explored have exhibited tremendous promise. For example, implementing a ketogenic diet starves cancer cells of the glucose they so heavily rely on for survival. The preclinical results have been remarkably consistent. In virtually every experiment in which the ketogenic diet has been tested in mice, tumor growth rates have slowed. The results of the diet stand alone, but the results get really exciting when the diet is utilized in addition to other therapies. Preclinical evidence has shown that the ketogenic diet is able to put cancer cells under significant metabolic stress allowing additional therapies, like standard-of-care chemotherapy, radiation, and hyperbaric-oxygen to push the cells over the edge, increasing their efficacy exponentially; and this is just scratching the surface.
