Dr. Oswari is not like any other medical doctor I have ever met. He genuinely cares about his patients, using both alternative and traditional medical modalities to give complete, holistic care. What doctor will send you a text on a Sunday night (for that matter, what medical doctor even has your cell phone number?), knowing that you are going through a tough time medically, offering a protocol that he feels might help? In my case, it was cancer treatment at Sloan Kettering in New York City. By reaching out to me, he basically changed the course of my health (and life).
Dr. Oswari wanted me to start the keto diet/protocol. I told him that in my current condition, I did not want to start yet another health protocol. I had been through so many over the years dealing with cancer. He persisted, in a good way, and sent me pictures from the book he was reading explaining the benefits of the keto diet and ketosis. I was tired of all the healthy ways of eating over the years that purportedly would help slow the growth of the cancer in my body. Nothing really had worked up to this point to stop the cancer from growing and I was not ready to change my eating patterns, yet again, for another health protocol. The texts continued, in a caring and concerned manner and not at all pushy. Finally, Dr. Oswari called and said, “what do you have to lose?” I thought, “he must really believe in this,” and began the keto protocol. I changed my diet completely, adding the appropriate vitamins and minerals, reading many books, and listening to all the podcasts that Dr. Oswari sent to me on an almost daily basis.
Five months after that conversation and switching my eating habits and lifestyle to the keto diet, I had a PET scan. It was August 29, 2019, when the oncologist walked into my exam room. I was expecting bad news, but when you are in a position as such, who could not be thinking the worst while trying so hard to stay positive. However, my current worries were thrown out the window when my oncologist smiled and revealed to me the fantastic news that my cancer had reduced by over 50%!!!! It was the greatest news I had ever received throughout my cancer journey.
From the bottom of my heart, I thank you, my children thank you, my family thanks you and my friends thank you. You are one in a million and I am so grateful to know you and have the pleasure of being one of your blessed patients.
