Shortly after her lumpectomy the tumor grew back to the size of a small egg.
Elaine began painstaking research and put herself on a standard ketogenic diet. It didn’t work and Elaine’s tumor continued to grow. Finally after modifying the diet to exclude the allergenic foods including dairy, soy and wheat Elaine tells us: “After only two weeks the tumor had shrunk to the size of a chickpea and continued to shrink until it completely disappeared.”
At the time Elaine’s son was 15 years old and had been living with Type 1 Diabetes and insulin injections since he was only three years old. Elaine’s modified Ketogenic diet also helped her son and he was able to go off insulin as long as he stayed on the diet.

Update Spring 2013: Elaine is battling breast cancer for the second time. We’ll keep you updated as she progresses through healing.
