To Good Health!
Plan: IF Fung/LC Westman/Primal
Gearing up for the 2017 conference next weekend, the Epigenix Foundation posted a new video of a brain cancer survivor using their Keto diet. It appears they (i.e. Quest) developed foods for this trial. http://www.questketo.com/meals-1102/
The foundation board and significant funding involve executives from Quest Nutrition. Foundation Board Chair is Ron Penna, Founder and CEO of Quest.
This past year, in conjunction with Cedars-Sinai Hospital, they have been conducting a Pilot Study with 50 human patients using a Keto diet in conjunction with conventional treatment. This is a 3 minute video about a pro-surfer with brain cancer.
“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at will change.” - Wayne Dyer
Even in the face of a life-threatening disease like cancer, perspective can change everything.
I am in control...
I feel empowered…
I WILL overcome this…
These are powerful words of perception from our patients at Epigenix Foundation.
Over the last year, we've had the privilege to guide and learn from the nearly 50 people who have participated in our pilot studies. Many of them face a reality where life is not guaranteed. Yet despite any diagnosis or prognosis, they do not allow their disease to define them. They have shown me the truth behind the saying, “Everybody dies, but not everybody lives.”
Our patients decide to THRIVE.
Tim Reda is a beautiful example of this. Last year, Tim was diagnosed with a brain tumor at the height of his professional surfing career. Unfortunately, for several months Tim lost his ability to surf when he began chemo and radiation treatments. Through the support of his physician at Cedars Sinai and alongside standard of care, Tim decided to participate in our ketogenic diet pilot study. The progress he’s made since his diagnosis is nothing short of extraordinary.
We are proud to share with you the inspiring story of how Tim Reda made it back into the blue.
Special thanks to Amy & Tim Reda for bravely sharing their journey, the Epigenix Foundation team, Tim's incredible support system at Cedars-Sinai including Dr. Hu, LJ Fitzpatrick, and our talented media crew Ben Spink, Niles Hogue, Prosper Kitilya and Erick Solis for capturing Tim's story and helping us share it with the world!
