Paleo Ketogenic Diet

Elaine Cantin on Healing with her modified Ketogenic Diet and Breast Cancer

Elaine Cantin 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 Elaine, as she had seen many family members and friends die. Elaine said, “I thought that if I had to go, I would not be going that way.” Within six months the tumor had regrown in the original spot to the size of a small egg.

Elaine did extensive research and testing with the ketogentic diet used at the Johns Hopkins Medical Center. She modified the diet to exclude dairy and other allergens, and once on this modified version of the diet, her tumor shrunk to the size of a chickpea in only two weeks. A biopsy of the ‘tumor’ revealed cancer cells were no longer present.

Recently Elaine has been given a clean bill of health as she is considered in remission.

Elaine also tested her diet with her fifteen year old son who has been taking insulin for Type 1 Diabetes since he was three years old. As long as he is able to stay on the diet, his blood sugars level and he is able to stop taking insulin. For many years now we have believed that Type 1 Diabetes is incurable. Elaine was able to get her son off insulin several times and is conducting further research to see if her modified ketogenic diet can actually cure Type 1 Diabetes.

Elaine shares her encouraging and uplifting story of how she healed from breast cancer with her modified ketogenic diet, and also tells of her experience with Type 1 Diabetes in this short interview with Incredible Healing Journals.

Cancer Cure and Survivor Stories



  1. Is she still alive? Last I heard, the diet had failed and she was fighting a recurrence. I stopped following her after that. Curious about her current status. What stage is she now?

  2. Low fat vegan diets best and have been shown to reverse most chronic illesses: diabetes, heart disease and prevent many cancers. Your ketosis diet is only a short term fix but I would be interested in how this holds up over time. It is very hard on your kidneys and is increasing your circulatory problems and cardiovascular disease – whether you know it or not. Long term will tell. Dr. Atkins was a ketogenic practitioner and he died with Congestive heart failure, etc.

  3. First of all congratulations!!
    Ingesting animal proteins increases IGF1 growth hormone, this increases chances of creating cancer so I dont understand the theory when you think about IGF1 and also when cooking meat it creates chemicals that aslo increase the chances of making cancer too, I would like to do it but the cancer worries of the pro cancer IGF1 and chemicals in cooked meats frighten me.

  4. I am wondering if it will work on fungal infections. I am assuming I have something fungal in my lungs that doesn't seem to go away. Carbs give me an uncontrollable cough and mucus. It is either fungal or bacterial in my system and doctors can't detect exactly what it is. I have been eating 85-90 % fats and 2-3% net carbs daily for about a week now. I have a slight improvement but the tingle on the back of my throat is still present sometimes. Any suggestions?

  5. Darn… Im Malaysian, and just found love in heavy cream. And cheese… At the moment my blood sugar has gone down to normal (sometimes high normal). WEight has also gone down 10kgs++ (that's 22 pounds, right?) … Should I forego dairy if it doesnt seem to harm me? (Well, at least thats what i think… dunno whats really happenning inside)

  6. I've been eating high fat, low carb for a couple of years now, gradually introducing intermittent fasting and mild calorie restriction.  I'm no longer overweight, but cancer and dementia are common in my family.  I'm interested in taking my health to the next level with ketosis, and Elaine's dairy free approach intrigues me.  I may be too reliant on conventional dairy products, all high fat of course, at present.  I want to see whether I have mild inflammation from dairy, and the only way to do that is finding an alternative source of dietary fats.  I've ordered Elaine's book and it's on the way.

  8. Hi rollnmash, Elaine explains everything in the movie: Invasive ductal adenocarcinoma, stage 2, very strong grade 3, almost 4, estrogen and progesterone positive, vascular invasion in breast and through body, 2 lymph nodes out of 3 positive. Hope this helps …
