Ketogenic Diets (KD) are well evidenced as an effective therapy for epilepsy, diabetes, specific cancers, weight loss and metabolic syndrome. Emerging research shows it’s efficacy for other neurological and health conditions, including autism, ADHD, depression, dementia, PCOS and hypertension.
Nutrition therapies in general are under-utilised. Families are not made aware of the options to make food changes to accompany or even instead of medications and standard treatments.
Our family chose to try a real food ketogenic diet first, before any anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs), which drastically reduced seizure types, frequency and severity for our daughter. It also delivered a heap of other health and life quality benefits that we would not have achieved with AEDs.
I’m off 2 diabetes medications and am due to come off a statins thanks to the diet changes I have learned with Leafie.org
My Low Carb lifestyle has given me a new purpose in life and has made me feel a lot more optimistic about life in general.
My family's health has improved massively now that we eat less sugar. Our house is a sugar-free safe zone and our kids love it!
