Ketogenic diet

Ketogenic diet
This article is about a dietary therapy for epilepsy. For information on ketogenic low-carbohydrate diets as a lifestyle choice or for weight loss, see Low-carbohydrate diet. The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet that in medicine is used primarily to treat difficult-to-control (refractory) epilepsy in children. The original therapeutic diet for paediatric epilepsy provides just enough protein for body growth and repair, and sufficient calories[Note 1] to maintain the correct weight for age and height. Most dietary fat is made of molecules called long-chain triglycerides (LCTs). The classic therapeutic ketogenic diet was developed for treatment of paediatric epilepsy in the 1920s and was widely used into the next decade, but its popularity waned with the introduction of effective anticonvulsant drugs.

Enviromedica by Lau'ana Lei There are two main approaches to healing disease from a holistic perspective. These are, first, detoxification and second, immune system improvement. Magnetic Clay Baths are excellent for detoxification. They pull from the body metals and chemicals, which inhibit immune function. But detoxification is only half the solution. When the body is terribly compromised from metals and chemicals, it is difficult to clear out all toxins. THE CORRELATION OF THE pH FACTOR AND LEAKY GUT SYNDROME IN RELATION TO CHRONIC DISEASE The imbalance of pH, acidity and alkalinity in the body, is a key factor in chronic illness. Leaky gut syndrome is an advanced stage of toxicity characterized by lesions in the walls of the intestinal system, which allow toxins to be reabsorbed into the body instead of being eliminated through the normal procedure. A visual analogy helps here. PROGRAMS FOR HELPING THE LEAKY GUT, BALANCING THE pH AND IMPROVING CELLULAR NUTRITION NICKEL: Poppy seeds.

Low-carbohydrate diet Diets restricting carbohydrate consumption A low-carbohydrate diet restricts the amount of carbohydrate-rich foods – such as bread – in the diet. There is a lack of standardization of how much carbohydrate low-carbohydrate diets must have, and this has complicated research.[1] One definition, from the American Academy of Family Physicians, specifies low-carbohydrate diets as having less than 20% carbohydrate content.[2] There is no good evidence that low-carbohydrate dieting confers any particular health benefits apart from weight loss, where low-carbohydrate diets achieve outcomes similar to other diets, as weight loss is mainly determined by calorie restriction and adherence.[3] Definition and classification[edit] Macronutrient ratios[edit] The macronutrient ratios of low-carbohydrate diets are not standardized.[5][6] As of 2018[update] the conflicting definitions of "low-carbohydrate" diets have complicated research into the subject.[1][7] Foodstuffs[edit] Adoption and advocacy[edit]

Peace through a Sattvic Diet | General | Body A Life Enhancing Diet to Balance the Mind "Food is a dynamic force which interacts with the human on the physical body level, the mind emotional level, and also the energetic and spiritual level.

Blood Types & Evolution © Geraldo Fuentes for viewzone Blood Types & Different DiseasesAre You At Risk? It is theorized that the original blood type for early primates was type O. DNA retrieved from two Neandertal skeletons showed no A or B antibodies and projected the origin of type O to one million years ago.[1] "The results however suggest the presence of the human O01 allele already in the common ancestor of Neandertals and modern humans and thereby confirming an emergence of the O01 allele more than 1 million years ago predating the divergence of the modern human and Neandertal populations." DNA from Cro-Magnon and chimpanzie specimens showed type O and A, a mutation that proved adventageous because of some environmental challenges or infestations. If we look at how the original type O humans are faring in today's modern world we can reliably say that they have done very well. So nature got it right the first time. These were nomadic people who ate a variety of nuts, grains, vegetables and fruits. Type O

What Is An Elemental Diet? | Listen To Your Gut This is a great teleseminar with me (Jini Patel Thompson) and my assistant, Nicole Paull, called All About Elemental Diets. This is from our LTYG Wellness Circle, but we decided to make it available to everyone since we get these questions all the time. We discuss the most common questions, difficulties, tips and tricks for people wanting to go on an elemental diet. We also discuss viable alternatives to an elemental diet – for people who don’t have the money, or the time, or the willpower to do an exclusively elemental diet. Nicole and I have been answering questions on the forum and doing private consults with people on The IBD Remission Diet for years (in addition to having both personally been on the Diet) – so we pull from a huge pool of experience with hundreds of different people.

14 Steps To Eating The Bulletproof Diet This post has been so helpful that I’m reposting it now that the NYT bestseller The Bulletproof Diet book is published. Take as many steps at a time as you can – anything is always better than nothing! “Where do I start?” This is something lots of people ask about the Bulletproof Diet. Change is of any kind can be hard, whether you want to lose weight or feel great and just plain kick ass every day – but it’s worse when you haven’t even started yet. A lot of people feel like they’ve failed if they don’t eat perfectly, so they decide to ditch the entire program – bad idea, especially since you don’t have to do it perfectly. That’s why I’ve created a step-wise approach to getting started on the Bulletproof Diet. One of the most common questions I receive is whether or not the diet will work if you discard some of the principles and consume non-organic vegetables, conventional meat, farmed seafood, etc. However, you’ll be healthier and stronger by making even the smallest changes. 1. 2. 3.
