Low-Carbohydrate Diet Superior to Anti-psychotic Medications

Two remarkable personal stories, as told by their Harvard psychiatrist.

This summer, I was fortunate to participate in the groundbreaking International Society for Nutritional Psychiatry Research (ISNPR) conference held in Bethesda, Maryland. The meeting was truly inspiring and exciting to those of us who believe that nutritional approaches are the way forward in the treatment of mental health disorders. While the majority of the presentations at this conference were focused on omega-3 fatty acids, microbiome research, micronutrients, and the Mediterranean diet, there were a few small breakout sessions exploring the potential benefits of ketogenic diets. Ketogenic diets are special low-carbohydrate diets that have been used to treat epilepsy for almost 100 years and show great promise in the management of a wide variety of other brain disorders.



Different Brain Regions are Infected with Fungi in Alzheimer’s Disease

I spent many years of my childhood watching my grandmother unable to do anything much other than sit in her chair and watch TV because of Alzheimers disease. Years later my grandfather followed her down the same path. Since it has always been said this is a genetic disease I have always had a lot of interest in studies on Alzheimers disease. This paper, published online Oct 2015 finally has some real answers. I have thought that Alzheimers had to do with yeast/mold for years especially after my run-in with living in a very moldy apartment which ultimately resulted in all kinds of strange neurodegenerative issues which I have completely reversed with the GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) Diet. As a result all of this personal difficulty in my interactions with yeasts I am very excited to read this paper and see the images provided showing the yeasts in the nerves of the brain and CNS as well as arteries.
