Do you have or know anyone with an Autoimmune Disease?
Today, almost every chronic illness can be traced back to some immune dysfunction. Right down to the mitochondrial level.
Many times the causes for autoimmunity are multifactorial and complicated.
Nutrition is certainly one key player in both the aetiology and management of autoimmune disease.
Below, after many hours of reading dozens of research papers, I’ve put together a factsheet on a modified ketogenic diet for the treatment of autoimmune disease.
It covers the basics of the diet, its mechanisms and benefits. Unfortunately, there are too many autoimmune diseases and too little money to be made from treating it with diet (vs pharmaceuticals). Hence, there is generally a lack of good studies such as intervention trials.
Nonetheless, the mechanisms of how a ketogenic diet may benefit autoimmunity is sound and convincing in my opinion.
