So much has happened, feeling great but mentally fatigued

I'm working on a lot of things at the moment and felt like it was time for an update, otherwise it would have never been done!

Recently I have done a number of interviews online which have been great for getting the message across about the potential of the ketogenic diet to manage cancer. Please note that I am very careful with my wording and that I would always say 'manage', never cure, even though cure is always the aim. I believe that I will need to be on this diet for the rest of my life to maintain this status quo within my body and brain to keep the cancer in 'complete remission' indefinitely.



Here are some some things I have been working on recently:

1. My website, in which I aim to raise awareness about metabolic therapy and share research. This will have a lot of information soon!

www.metabolictherapy.co.uk

2. My book 'Taking Control', which I am working on currently.

The book will detail my story my individual cancer story from diagnosis to the day I complete writing. I will discuss the current research on metabolic therapy as a management strategy for brain cancer.

I have realised recently that writing a good book with substance is actually quite challenging but I am determined to make it engaging, intelligent, and readable. I would like the majority of the profits from the book to go towards research into metabolic therapy. I am already working hard to make this happen.

3. I have done a few interviews recently which can be found here:

4. I have a new supplement which I have found incredibly useful- Ketoforce. I take it twice a day now as a replacement for my epilepsy medication. It also allows me to maintain therapeutic ketosis and keep blood glucose low so that I can do more exercise and eat a little bit more protein which is very nice! I've been struggling to put weight on for a while now. I feel great but its just a superficial thing mainly. I've never been someone who is overly concerned with what I look like, its simply a confidence issue and slight insecurity.



5. I have a girlfriend now and she makes me very happy. This is a very big thing for me and something I thought a lot about even though it all happened relatively quickly. She's lovely and I'm so thankful that she is in my life. I would love to do something special for her soon because she has been so supportive of me in so many ways. I'll think of something good. :)




6. I have attended some meetings of the brain tumour support group at the Maggie's Centre by Charing Cross Hospital. I enjoyed this very much even though at times it was very emotional. I wish I had known about this place 2 years ago as I had very little support when I actually had disabilities and felt depressed. There was a very keen interest in the ketogenic diet when I mentioned it after sharing my personal story which was great to see.





7. I'm still waiting on a few things, but in the meantime I will stop being lazy and update this blog more often!

I've started going to an outdoor gym 3 times a week with my girlfriend as it has been fairly warm recently. I'm hoping the increase in protein will help me to put on a bit more weight. I have often been hesitant to do this because  attempting this without the Ketoforce supplement caused me to have some facial twitching. I still find it remarkable how stable bg and high ketones keep all my symptoms in check so brilliantly.  In the past week or so I have had days where I feel incredibly energetic and mentally very sharp. Its a tremendous feeling and while I still have some problems associated with any kind of acquired brain injury, I'm enjoying moving and thinking at a pace akin to how I used to live. I feel at though the old me is coming back and I desperately need to help others improve at the very least their quality of life.

I have managed to achieve brilliant control of all my symptoms effortlessly while maintaining impressive bg and bk readings throughout the day in the last few weeks  specifically which is very pleasing. I know that the ketogenic diet in itself is not the be all and end all for cancer management so I am constantly striving to improve it and to find other methods of metabolic therapy that can have a synergistic benefit with a restricted ketogenic diet.


This book and all of the research and hospital visits to help others is mentally exhausting, hence the title of this blog, but it is incredibly rewarding. I do need a break, but that will come. Thank you very much for reading and for all your support whoever is reading this!

  2. I am currently attempting to use KetoCaNa (salt form of ketoforce) to get my ketones levels consistently higher. Are you supplementing every 3 to 4 hours? Or once in morning and once in afternoon?

    I have enjoyed the impact especially in my yoga practice but was thinking of using during fasting vs daily. Just curious on how you are liking it

    1. I wish I could get KetoCaNa but I don't think it can be delivered to the UK.

      I use Ketoforce in the morning before my workouts now and then in the afternoon.

      I don't need to in the evening because my ketones are naturally very high, often 5 and above! I now eat 5 meals a day if you include snacks as I'm trying to put on weight and incredibly my readings stay within nice ranges for therapeutic ketosis. During and after a workout I use up a lot of ketones but they are replenished immediately after. I've started to do heavy resistance training as of today to build up bone and muscle strength and improve seizure activity tolerance so I'm toying with the idea of using Ketoforce or a similar supplement during my workout as well. It gives me so much more energy as my diet has no carbs. Today I felt very strong which was encouraging and I hope I can gain back some of the weight I lost over the past 2 and a half years!

  4. Natural medicine for epilepsy.
    My daughter started having seizures in 2008 and she was diagnosed later that year of epilepsy. We tried all the medications, drugs and therapy but it continued and she felt her end has come because she had seizure in front of the whole class this really made her angry, frustrated we usually used injections to keep her normal again and this do nor normally last long. All drugs failed and there was no improvement on her condition. A church member gave me Dr Humphrey's contact and told me how he helped her neighbour using his medicine. I got the medicine and used it and it was really good, since then he has improved and the seizures are gone. If you need to contact him just reach him directly on josephalberteo@gmail.com for advise and for the medicine.

  5. How my son survived epilepsy.
    My son at the age of 13 suffered from terrible seizures as a result of the terrible condition called epilepsy and this was very humiliating and life threatening because he was continously on life support drugs and medicines but none seemed to cure all they did was revive him and the seizure kept coming to him this lasted for 8 more years. The last time he had seisure in may last year i was called where i worked that my son had a terrible seizure, he was also revived from that but that day i wept. I was fortunate enough to explain my ordeal to a friend who invited Dr. Joseph who came and started treating my son with his medicine at our house for two months and in 3 months the seizure never happened again they were gone and even up till now he is very fine without any epileptic symptoms. Today he 22 and i believe he has been cured. Epilepsy has a cure simply try to reach the doctor on (josephalberteo@gmail.com) for more information about his treatment process or how to get his medicine. Do not give up on yourself, i hope my son's story motivates you.

  6. For 18 years my daughter Emily was affected by the problem of seizure (epilepsy) which was characterized by sensory disturbance, convulsion which comes when you least expect it. I tried several drugs prescribed by the doctor like acetazolamide, clonazepam, carbamazepine, but was ineffective and the problem kept repeating itself. I got Doctor Joseph's contact from a colleague who told me about him. I contacted him and he sent me his herbal medicine, which my daughter Emily used for 3 weeks. It's been over three years now and no seizure has occurred since, i decided to share my story to motivate those still held bound by this not to lose hope. You too can contact him on directly (josephalberteo@gmail.com) i am positive he can help you too.

  7. Dr.William product is a real cure to Tinnitus, I am 38 years old, I suffered from permanent tinnitus for about 4 years, mostly in my right ear... which means I've got this constant ringing in my ears, which has also made me somewhat deaf. It's like this Whee! noise in my head all the time. My T was more steady, this is due to prolonged exposure to the loud volume of concerts. Looking after your ears is unfortunately something you don't think about until there's a problem. I wish I'd thought about it earlier. There were days when I didn't know whether I would survive, I was so tormented by this symptoms. When I lay down to sleep it bothers me the most, As I lay my head on the pillow, it cancels out all the other ear. The GoodNews is that after using William Herbal medicine, Tinnitus is gone, try it also it going to work for you. There are real cure and do not be discouraged. Hang in there... Better days will come (email him on: drwilliams098765@gmail.com)

    I was always praying to have a testimony when ever i saw people sharing their own testimonies which really took me years but today i am the happiest father on earth.

    All these years my son was like a death person but today he is been cured.and you do not know how i feel having my son back to life because it was not really easy for me having just two children and one been abnormal.
    I took time to search internet which i found a lot of people thanking Dr. George concerning the same problem and i discussed it with my wife and she said we should give a try so we order his product which my son took for some months and he is very much okay now.

  11. At the age of 18 I had my first seizure. I was in high school and didn't want anyone to know that I had epilepsy. I had seizures on two occasions. I was so ashamed and didn't want people to think that something was wrong with me. I finally got to the point where I told people that I had epilepsy. I came to the place that I realized that I had to own my epilepsy or it would control me. Epilepsy hadn't really affected my life until about 9 years ago after my first child was born... I am a wife and mother of two beautiful children. I have lived with epilepsy for 20 years Yet, my life has been dramatically impacted by epilepsy. I had search for cure online without no hope. I met a Man called DR Lewis hill, i contact him I made an order of his medicine and I do not experience seizure anymore i was cured form it. So if you are in the same situation as mine contact him on this email drlewishill247@gmail.com or call him +1 (323)244-4884

  14. My son recently started having grand Mal seizures at 16 years old. We were prescribed Kepler. We decided NOT to take the medicine and go with a Modified Atkins Diet that entails feeding our son 15 carbs a day with lots of healthy fat. He eats a lot of grass fed beef, free range eggs, organic low crab veggies and is doing fantastic! We could tell a difference in him by the 3rd day. This is not alternative or junk science. Dr. Lewis hill at Johns Hopkins has been championing this diet for years and has been really successful. Doctors are really resistant to this therapy but it works!. Read "Grain Brain" for why it works. He also takes taurine which helped stop the night time teeth grinding, jerking, and unrest in his sleep (also known to stop seizures). And he takes cur cumin as a brain protestant that raises seizures.one day came across Albert post thanking Dr Lewis hill for curing his son seizure problem, and i got the contact of Dr Lewis hill i quickly contacted him then he made me to know that the medication is 100% permanent cure, and that was how i got the medicine which i used for my son, after which i took my son for medical test It worked! Over a year now, my son have not show any symptoms of seizure and I believe my son is cure if you need his help email him on drlewishill247@gmail.com or call him on +1 (323)244-4884

  20. An amazing testimony on a Native Iya Hindi root and herbs who help me to get pregnant, So me and my partner have been trying for a baby for the last 2 years now. I don’t have a regular cycle so it is hard for me to tell when I’m ovulating or not, but we always have sex at least 3 times a week, sometimes more. I know it can take up to a year to conceive but everyone i know who have had a baby have conceived within 2-3months of trying and it is really getting to me. my partner had a fertility test about a year ago and his sperm were fine. I’m thinking it could be a problem with me but I’ve never had any symptoms of any problems. My partner does smoke and have the occasional drink, and i used to smoke and also have the occasional drink. i know i’m slightly overweight but that shouldn’t affect our chances too much, one faithful day my friend told me to contact Native Iya Hindi that help her sister, then i contact the email. hindinative@yahoo.com,He sent the Herbs to me and gave instruction on method after three weeks the doctor confirm that i am pregnant thank you Native Iya Hindi for helping me get a baby, I am thankful for all he had done. contact him via email:(hindinative@yahoo.com .Or whats App number+19145295224), if you are trying to get a baby.
