A team of Swiss researchers report on a novel therapeutic approach for migraine reduction: ketone supplementation.1  One in seven American adults suffer from migraine headaches, but effective therapies are lacking.2 Females, especially during reproductive years, are disproportionately affected by migraines, with a migraine prevalence of approximately 20% in females vs. 9% in males.2 Migraines are a leading cause of outpatient and emergency room visits.2 The personal disability and public health burdens from migraines are obvious, but solutions for migraine prevention and treatment are more elusive. Exogenous ketone…

by Lewis Chang, PhD  Increased blood ketone levels following consumption of a ketone ester drink delayed the onset of hunger in conjunction with a delayed rise in plasma ghrelin levels, a human study found.1 Ketogenic diets are linked to decreased appetite and altered gut hormone levels; however, it is less clear whether elevated blood levels of ketone body (as opposed to other dietary ingredients) were responsible for the observed changes. Researchers from the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics at…

In Dr. Lazarus’ talk on the ketone diet and anti-aging, he examines the body of research that demonstrate how the ketogenic  food program effectively treats many metabolic conditions including metabolic syndrome, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and other neurodegenerative disorders. Dr. Lazarus provides insights on how to best implement a ketogenic food plan. Lastly, he explores the biochemical and genetic underpinnings that mediate the ketogenic diet effects. Originally aired March 1, 2018

If you had three wishes to improve your health, what would they be? Dr. Lazarus identifies the three main areas most patients desire improvement in: gain energy, lose weight, and improve the aging process. Dr. Lazarus discusses a therapeutic metabolic reboot via nutritional ketosis, when the body uses fat as alternative fuel by reducing overall calorie input, reducing carbohydrate intake, and maintaining adequate protein intake. He provides simple implementation strategies to help patients safely achieve ketosis and insights to support you and…

Adaptation is key to survival. In Dr. Keroack’s talk he shares his experiences helping patients follow a variety of dietary patterns and food plans. In his clinical practice, Dr. Keroack often uses the ketogenic diet. He shares how the body adapts to the ketogenic pattern of eating and the effects on hormones, weight, energy balance, metabolism, and body composition. Originally aired March 15, 2018

“Sports and the Ketogenic Diet” presented by Scott Bergman, DC, CTN, DAAIM; Director, Chiro Kinetics Dr. Bergman discusses inflammation and speaks about common inflammatory conditions and their underlying causes. Dr. Bergman suggests that the first place to start for patients with inflammatory dysfunction is the ketogenic diet. In this talk he will explore the biochemical process of the therapeutic ketogenic eating program and explain how it helps disease states as well as supporting athletes, for better endurance, faster recovery, and improved overall…

The ketogenic food plan can facilitate significant improvements in weight management and chronic disease for patients. Transitioning out of the ketogenic dietary pattern is equally as important as the initiation. If the transition is implemented incorrectly, the improvements seen during the diet may be attenuated or lost. Dr. Keroack imparts a step-by-step approach to gradually transition patients from the ketogenic platform into a long-term eating pattern. Originally aired March 29, 2018

In this Nutrition Masters Course on the Ketogenic Program, you will glean insights on the ketogenic diet through an evidence-based research approach. First, the impact of dietary macronutrient composition in human health, with a focus on low-carbohydrate implementation, will be explored. Next, the physiology and mechanisms supporting ketogenic approaches and nutritional ketosis, along with the clinical outcomes of ketogenic diets, are covered. Finally, clinical safety and monitoring guidance, as well as targeted nutritional supplement support strategies (e.g. medium-chain triglycerides and…

Obesity

by Lewis Chang, PhD  An editorial perspective, recently published in the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) obesity-themed issue, helps to explain the growing interest in the ketogenic diet for weight and type 2 diabetes (T2D) management [1]. Many people successfully lose weight via diet over the short haul; however, because of physiological adaptations, it becomes much more difficult to maintain that weight loss in the long run. As a result, a majority of people regain their weight—and sometimes more. Interestingly, accumulating evidence suggests…

by Milene Brownlow, PhD The metabolism of exogenous ketones, in ester vs. salt forms, are explored. Highlights Ketone ester (KE) drinks elevated blood βHB to a greater extent (>50%) than Ketone salt (KS) drinks, while KS drinks increased blood levels of L-βHB, which was metabolized more slowly Both drinks had similar effects on FFA, TG, glucose and electrolyte concentrations, although only KE significantly decreased blood pH below normal range Consumption of a meal prior to KE intake decreased total blood…
