Seven years ago I had a grand mal seizure and it was discovered I had a brain tumor (astrocytoma grade 3). It was so large that my entire right parietal lobe had to be removed in order to get the whole tumor.
One year later I suddenly developed what was diagnosed as reactive hypoglycemia. I was told I had to eat every two hours and, in fact, if I didn’t I got the shakes very quickly. I was having to eat so often that I no longer enjoyed eating.
I saw you on my local PBS station, bought the book and haven’t turned back since. I can go for 5 hours without eating and now I can actually be hungry and eat. In fact, I even had a fasting blood draw this morning, which I avoided in the past. I did not even feel hungry until 10 am this morning! Thank you so much for your book and all the time you spent doing research on this topic.
In May of 2012 I was diagnosed was a Meningioma brain tumor following a paralyzing, 15-minute seizure from the waist down on my left side. My tumor is located in my right frontal lobe, posterior. Due to vascular involvement, I was placed on anti-seizure meds and am currently on watch and wait. In the fall of 2012 my youngest son researched paleo diets and we have been following a low carb lifestyle ever since. Not only have we both lost significant weight and inches, my tumor has shrunk along with me in the two subsequent MRI scans in 2012 – 2013. My neuro-oncologist is amazed!
After reading your book, I feel confident that I can continue to positively turn my situation around. Presently I am working on adding the various supplements mentioned in the book. I have a doctor’s appointment coming up and plan on having blood work done as Grain Brain suggested.
