I was diagnosed with breast cancer and within one week was rushed into have a surgical lumpectomy. Doctors wanted to immediately begin ‘aggressive’ radiation and chemotherapy and this idea frightened me, I've seen many family members and friends die soon after similar treatments. I thought that if I had to go, I would not be going that way. Shortly after my lumpectomy the tumor grew back to the size of a small egg. I began researching the Ketogenic diet and after modifying it to remove several allergenic foods and toxins, the tumor shrunk to the size of a chick pea and then disappeared! I linked type 1 diabetes and cancer to epilepsy and ketones via fever. Then I created my own ketogenic diet that I optimized for health to get the best chance at survival. I demonstrate in my book that my ketogenic diet also works for type 1 diabetes and that ketones alone are not enough for healing. I also lay the ground rules and show that a ketogenic diet can be adapted to any lifestyle, including vegan. 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.” My book, The Cantin Ketogenic Diet, is my diet of hope, a diet that comes from my heart, my own research… I live it and I know what it’s like, I hope it can help others.
