Miriam Kalamian is a board-certified nutrition consultant and leading voice in the keto movement. Her passion for helping others implement a ketogenic diet comes directly from her personal experience when her son, Raffi, was diagnosed with a brain tumour in December 2004. Standard of care therapies failed to stop the relentless progression of his disease, and it became painfully clear that she needed to switch gears quickly. That is what originally led to Dr Thomas Seyfried’s research supporting the use of a low-carb, high-fat diet for cancer.

Miriam Kalamian is a nutrition consultant, educator, and author specializing in the implementation of ketogenic therapies. She earned her master of education (EdM) from Smith College and her master of human nutrition (MS) from Eastern Michigan University. She is board certified in nutrition (CNS) by the Board for Certification of Nutrition Specialists. Miriam draws on a decade of experience to provide comprehensive guidelines that specifically address the many diet and lifestyle challenges associated with a cancer diagnosis. Her work also includes integrating nutritional strategies with metabolic therapies and lifestyle modifications to develop personalized treatments that address a broad spectrum of conditions that are currently considered intractable, such as age-related, neurodegenerative and bariatric diseases. Miriam lives in Montana. USA.
