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.”
Shortly after her lumpectomy the tumor grew back to the size of a small egg. Elaine had to think seriously about having more surgery and treatments. She began researching the Ketogenic diet and after modifying it to remove several allergenic foods, Elaine’s tumor shrunk to the size of a chick pea and then disappeared. Elaine has been told by her oncologist that she is in remission.
Elaine also has been testing the 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. Elaine is conducting further research to see if her modified ketogenic diet can actually reverse Type 1 Diabetes.
Elaine shares her encouraging and uplifting story of how she is healing with breast cancer in this short video interview (below) with Incredible Healing Journals.
UPDATE June 2013: Here is a message directly from Elaine: “For those who missed my previous post or if I was not clear enough, I am doing great. I was diagnosed with advanced cancer via biopsy and ultrasound on 3/15/2013 and on 4/19/2013, my CT scan report showed that I only had a small nodule left that could no longer be confirmed with certainty as cancer. Thank God for my diet! Love & health to all of you. ♥” Elaine Cantin

Elaine Cantin’s Expertise
I am just a regular girl with a very soft spot for sick children and with a very analytical mind. What characterizes me the most is that when I set my mind on doing something, I don’t give up until I succeed. I love to learn, I am self motivated and I cannot help it, I am a leader. I am a firm believer that if there is a will there is a way, and if you believe you can achieve something, you will.
