Keto, ADHD, Autism, Brain, Nerve


Keto, ADHD and Autism.

Ketogenic diets, which have been around for more than 100 years, seem to be a hopeful (non-medication) option for helping in neurological conditions such as ADHD, OCD, and Autism, along with other brain, nerve, or behavior conditions such as ALS, Alzheimer's, Anxiety, BiPolar Disorder, Dementia, Depression, Epilepsy and seizure disorders, Guillian-Barre Syndrome (which can lead to Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia), headaches, M.S., Parkinson's, Schizophrenia, Tourette's, vertigo, and more (as well as metabolic disorders). 

I have researched hundreds of articles on this subject over the years and have compiled a list of a few dozen of them, below, including some quick testimonies:

From nutritionist Maria Emmerich: "We get many questions about kids and ketogenic diets. We have fed our kids keto from the time they came to us (at age 1 and 2) and have helped many clients put their kids on a ketogenic diet and see big improvements in focus, moods, ADHD and other symptoms. In this post we want to talk about kids going keto, the changes to make versus an adult eating keto and address some common myths."
