Most of the time on Chat the Fat, we talk about how to use Keto, Low Carb or intermittent fasting for weight loss results. Today we have a story that is all about using Keto for recovery. So many go into keto for the weight loss benefits they’ll receive, and they end up sticking with their keto plan because of all of the amazing health benefits that come with following a real food keto diet.
Today I’m chatting with Heather Cooan, who overcame a serious health diagnosis with using a ketogenic diet as part of her healing protocol.
Heather is a marketing executive turned nutrition counselor, consultant, and educator. Heather is currently a Nutrition Therapist Master and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner candidate and advocates for informed consent, bodily autonomy, and self-directed healthcare. She speaks and writes on nutrition and lifestyle interventions for improved health and wellness. Heather successfully avoided radiation and chemotherapy and healed her body of vulvar cancer utilizing a food-as-medicine approach combined with conventional interventions such as surgery. Heather has also put two autoimmune diseases into remission (Hashimotos and Lichen Sclerosus) and reversed estrogen dominance, insulin resistance, hardening of the arteries, and fatty liver through diet and lifestyle change.
