Neuroprotective and disease-modifying effects of the ketogenic diet

"One recently published clinical study tested the effects of the ketogenic diet on symptoms of Parkinsonís disease (VanItallie et al., 2005). In this uncontrolled study, Parkinsonís disease patients experienced a mean of 43% reduction in Unified Parkinsonís Disease Rating Scale scores after a 28-day exposure to the ketogenic diet. All participating patients reported moderate to very good improvement in symptoms. Further, as in Alzheimerís disease, consumption of foods containing increased amounts of essential fatty acids has been associated with a lower risk of developing Parkinsonís disease (de Lau et al., 2005)."

Here's the link: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2367001/

We're going to try this and see what happens. A 43% improvement is better than any PD clinical trial I have ever read about, that is pretty amazing.

Lurking -
Please be careful with this type of diet. It can be very risky and if the ph levels are changed enough in a body, one can go into ketosis shock. I would highly recommend doing this diet ONLY under a doctor's care.
