The book addresses controversies related to the origins of cancer and provides solutions to cancer management and prevention. It expands upon Otto Warburg's well-known theory that all cancer is a disease of energy metabolism. However, Warburg did not link his theory to the "hallmarks of cancer" and thus his theory was discredited. This book aims to provide evidence, through case studies, that cancer is primarily a metabolic disease requring metabolic solutions for its management and prevention. Support for this position is derived from critical assessment of current cancer theories. Brain cancer case studies are presented as a proof of principle for metabolic solutions to disease management, but similarities are drawn to other types of cancer, including breast and colon, due to the same cellular mutations that they demonstrate.

With a new foreword by Dr. Dominic D'Agostino, PhD and epilogue by the author A masterful synchronization of history and cutting-edge science shines new light on humanity's darkest diagnosis. In the wake of the Cancer Genome Atlas project's failure to provide a legible roadmap to a cure for cancer, science writer Travis Christofferson illuminates a promising blend of old and new perspectives on the disease. Tripping over the Truth follows the story of cancer’s proposed metabolic origin from the vaunted halls of the German scientific golden age to modern laboratories around the world. The reader is taken on a journey through time and science that results in an unlikely connecting of the dots with profound therapeutic implications. Transporting us on a rich narrative of humanity’s struggle to understand the cellular events that conspire to form malignancy, Tripping over the Truth reads like a detective novel, full of twists and cover-ups, blind-alleys and striking moments of discovery by men and women with uncommon vision, grit, and fortitude. Ultimately, Christofferson arrives at a conclusion that challenges everything we thought we knew about the disease, suggesting the reason for the failed war against cancer stems from a flawed paradigm that categorizes cancer as an exclusively genetic disease. For anyone affected by this terrifying disease and the physicians who struggle to treat it, this book provides a fresh and hopeful perspective. It explores the new and exciting non-toxic therapies born from the emerging metabolic theory of cancer. These therapies may one day prove to be a turning point in the struggle against our ancient enemy. We are shown how the metabolic theory redraws the battle map, directing researchers to approach cancer treatment from a different angle, framing it more like a gentle rehabilitation rather than all-out combat. In a sharp departure from the current “targeted” revolution occurring in cancer pharmaceuticals, the metabolic therapies highlighted have one striking feature that sets them apart—the potential to treat all types of cancer because they exploit the one weakness that is common to every cancer cell: dysfunctional metabolism. With contributions from Thomas Seyfried, PhD, author of Cancer as a Metabolic Disease; Miriam Kalamian, EdM, MS, CNS, author of Keto for Cancer; and Beth Zupec Kania, consultant nutritionist of The Charlie Foundation.

A Comprehensive Guide for Patients and Practitioners Although evidence supporting the benefits of ketogenic diet therapies continues to mount, there is little to guide those who wish to adopt this diet as a metabolic therapy for cancer. Keto for Cancer fills this need. Inspired by the work of Dr. Thomas N. Seyfried, PhD, nutritionist Miriam Kalamian has written the first book to lay out comprehensive guidelines that specifically address the many challenges associated with cancer, and particularly the deep nutritional overhaul involved with the ketogenic diet. Kalamian, a leading voice in the keto movement, is driven by passion from her own experience in using the ketogenic diet for her young son. Her book addresses the nuts and bolts of adopting the diet, from deciding whether keto is the right choice to developing a personal plan for smoothly navigating the keto lifestyle. It is invaluable for both beginners and seasoned users of the ketogenic diet, as well as for health-care professionals who need a toolkit to implement this targeted metabolic therapy. The book guides readers to a deeper understanding of the therapeutic potential of the ketogenic diet--which extends well beyond simply starving cancer--emphasizing the powerful impact the diet has on the metabolism of cancer cells. Nutritional nuances are explored in sections such as "Fasting Protocols" and "Know What's in the Foods You Eat" while meal templates and tracking tools are provided in "Preparing Keto Meals." Kalamian also discusses important issues such as self-advocacy. Readers of Keto for Cancer are empowered to "get off the bench and get in the game." To that end, Kalamian offers tips on how to critically examine cancer-care options then incorporate what resonates into a truly personalized treatment plan.

This book should be read as a requirement for anyone diagnosed with cancer. It will serve as a tremendous practical guide for cancer patients and their families. —Thomas N. Seyfried, Professor of biology at Boston College and author of Cancer as a Metabolic Disease: On the Origin, Management, and Prevention of Cancer. This book is a “must read” for every adult as cancer remains our greatest enemy. If you have experience with cancer, via a family member or friend, once you start reading this book, it will be hard to put down. —Peter L. Pedersen, Professor of Biological Chemistry & Oncology, Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Westman’s personal experience with cancer led him to extensively research the state of cancer care. Strengthening the body’s own immune system to prevent and control cancer has shown very promising results, but it is largely ignored by mainstream cancer research and treatment. If you care about winning the war on cancer, this book will motivate you to advocate for more funding for this line of research. —Stephen L. Swanson, Past Chair of the Board of Directors of the American Cancer Society Dr. Westman’s book is amazing, creative, innovative, different, stimulating and outstanding. —Bharat B. Aggarwal, Professor of Cancer Research, University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center.

The ketogenic diet is a natural, non toxic, science based cancer diet which can be used for cancer prevention and treatment. It works because cancer cells are dependent upon a constant supply of blood sugar (glucose) to stay alive. Normal cells can use ketones as an alternative fuel, cancer cells can't. A ketogenic diet lowers blood glucose while increasing ketone levels, a metabolic state which effectively starves cancer cells while nourishing normal cells. This essential, well referenced book is based on cutting edge research on ketogenic dietary therapies from Dr. Dominic D'Agostino at the University of South Florida and Dr. Thomas Seyfried at Boston College, with their generous permission. The book offers the latest information on:* How and why a low carb, high fat ketogenic diet works to stop cancer cells, how to implement the diet and how to monitor your progress* Blood glucose and ketone level targets recommended to destroy cancer*What foods to choose and how much to eat *Why certain foods must be restricted*Use of calorie restriction and fasting*Whether alcohol is allowed *The debate between acidity vs alkalinity*Appropriate supplementation and much more.

Traditionally, endocrinology textbooks have been either short notes or multi-author, multi-volume monster, all of which present clinical material last and often only briefly. Endocrinology is different and used real cases to lead readers into the text and then describes the biochemistry, physiology, and anatomy they need to understand the case. The user-friendly design utilizes colour-coded boxes to highlight the basic scientific and clinical material required and also to describe the latest more advanced evidence. Typical clinical cases are included, along with more idiosyncratic cases to capture attention and highlight the cross-disciplinary nature of medicine. Endocrinology is the first book to address the requirement for integrated basic science and clinical practice, to encourage problem-based learning, and to lead readers deep into the subject. Unique benefits: * integrates basics sciences and clinical practice * features more real clinical cases than any similar book to emphasize problem-based learning * comprehensive and yet approachable * includes a comprehensive range of questions and answers to test understanding
