In today's episode, i talk with Miriam Kalamian, a nutrition professional specializing in the use of the ketogenic diet for cancer and other metabolic diseases. She holds a Master of Science degree in Human Nutrition from Eastern Michigan University.

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 of 2004. Standard of care therapies failed to stop the relentless progression of his disease and it became painfully clear that they needed to switch gears quickly. An Internet search led her to Dr. Thomas Seyfried's research supporting the use of the Restricted Ketogenic Diet for cancer.

Join me for this very personal and fascinating discussion around cancer and the ketogenic diet.
