Dr David Harper | Ketogenic Nutrition as a Therapeutic Intervention for Cancer, & How to Improve HDL Cholesterol KKP: 422 The Keto Kamp Podcast With Ben Azadi

    • Alternative Health

Today, I am blessed to have here with me Dr. David Harper. As a health educator and cancer researcher, Dr. David G. Harper has studied the impact of diet on human health for many years. The culmination of that extensive work is the BioDiet, a ketogenic food regimen that he and his wife began in 2012. The significant weight loss and health improvements they experienced led Dr. Harper to counsel hundreds of people on the BioDiet, with similarly consistent and impressive results.
Dr. Harper is an associate professor of kinesiology at the University of the Fraser Valley and a visiting scientist at the BC Cancer Research Center, Terry Fox Laboratory. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia and completed a post-doctoral fellowship in comparative physiology at the University of Cambridge. He is on the scientific advisory board of the Canadian Clinicians for Therapeutic Nutrition and is a member of the Institute for Personalized Therapeutic Nutrition.
In this episode, Dr. Harper discusses fixing your diet before putting drugs in your body. The best cure for cancer is through prevention; Dr. Harper reveals how diet can be the key to avoiding chronic diseases and cancer. Dr. Harper dives deep into the connection between insulin resistance, obesity, and inflammation. Plus, he chats about how ketosis is a great way to lower inflammation and reverse insulin resistance. Tune in as Dr. Harper talks about studying the effects of a ketogenic diet on women with breast cancer.

People often ask Dr. Hopper what the best treatment for cancer is. The best cancer treatment is not to get it in the first place. When you age, you don’t need to get heavy and sick. Most likely, you get heavy and sick because of your diet. You can have diabetes for a decade, which will be wholly reversed through a ketogenic diet.  Even atherosclerosis is reversible through diet.  [10:20] How Keto Tackles Obesity, Insulin Resistance, and Inflammation  
Counting calories has been pretty much disproven. It turns out this model just doesn’t work.  Obesity is a result of chronic exposure to a high carbohydrate diet.  Carbohydrates elevate your blood sugar dramatically.  Also, obesity makes insulin resistance worse and inflammation worse.

Sugar and high carbohydrate diets are causing inflammation.  Overall, you can make your mitochondria healthier through diet and exercise. [19:05] How Does Ketosis Lower Inflammation In The Body?  
Ketones are produced when you metabolize fats.  When you switch to fat metabolism, it triggers more antioxidant reactions within the cell.  Ketones will reduce the amount of fat within the cells.  High-sensitivity C-reactive Protein (hs-CRP) is the best measure of your chronic inflammation.
