  • What does IKRT mean?
    IKRT stands for Integrative Ketogenic Research and Therapies, the name of this company founded by Dr Erin Louise Bellamy. IKRT brings together the latest research on the ketogenic diet, ketogenic metabolic therapy and other metabolic therapies to improve mental health outcomes for individuals.
  • What is Metabolic Psychiatry?
    Metabolic Psychiatry is a new emerging field that focuses on the connection between metabolic processes and mental health. It focuses on understanding how disruptions in metabolic functions, such as those related to energy regulation, inflammation, and hormonal imbalances, may contribute to psychiatric conditions. By implementing metabolic interventions and other innovative approaches, those with diagnosed or undiagnosed mental health conditions may experience improvements in their symptoms. There is evidence to show that when metabolic health improves, so does mental health in some people.
  • What is the Metabolic Approach to Mental Health?
    The Metabolic Approach to Mental Health considers the connection between metabolic disorders (e.g., insulin resistance, high blood sugar, pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes, abdominal obesity, high blood pressure, high triglycerides) and mental health conditions. Addressing underlying metabolic issues may contribute to the management of certain mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, binge eating disorder.
  • Is Metabolic Psychiatry just about the Ketogenic Diet?
    No, Metabolic Psychiatry is not only focused on the Ketogenic Diet. While the Ketogenic Diet is one aspect within the broader field, Metabolic Psychiatry covers a wide range of factors related to metabolism and mental health. It investigates various dietary patterns, including low carbohydrate, ultra-processed food free, and ketogenic diets, physical activity, hormonal regulation, and overall metabolic health to understand their impact on psychiatric disorders.
  • What is Ketogenic Metabolic Therapy?
    Ketogenic Metabolic Therapy is a personalized approach to nutrition and lifestyle that can improve both physical and mental health. This approach is aimed at increasing the levels of ketones in your body. Ketogenic Metabolic Therapy goes beyond just the ketogenic diet; it's a method to improve your metabolic health, which, in turn, can have positive impacts on both your physical and mental well-being. You can read more about Ketogenic Metabolic Therapy here. It's important to note that while there is ongoing research supporting the potential benefits of Ketogenic Metabolic Therapy, it may not be suitable for everyone. If you are considering this approach for your physical or mental health, please arrange a consultation call to determine whether it is suitable for you and your health goals.
  • How does Ketogenic Metabolic Therapy work?
    Ketogenic Metabolic Therapy works by inducing a state of ketosis in the body through the implementation of a personalised ketogenic diet. The specific macronutrient composition triggers several metabolic changes in the body. Your ketogenic diet will be tailored to produce therapeutic levels of ketone bodies in your blood which will be tracked over time alongside the monitoring of your symptoms. Adjustments to the diet and other aspects of your lifestyle will be made in order to further improve your symptoms if necessary.
  • How Long Does It Take for the Ketogenic Diet to Help a Mental Health Condition?
    It is recommended to follow your personalised low carbohydrate or ketogenic dietary plan for at least 12 weeks to give it the best chance of improving your mental health symptoms. Some people may experience improvements with a low carbohydrate diet. Others may need a ketogenic diet to see the same benefits. The timeline also varies depending on you as an individual. Sometimes the ketogenic diet may not be enough to improve mental health symptoms on its own. In this circumstance, other metabolic therapies may be discussed and introduced.
  • Can the Keto Diet or Ketogenic Metabolic Therapy Help With Brain Fog?
    A personalised ketogenic diet or implementation of ketogenic metabolic therapy can help to improve brain fog. If this is an issue you are dealing with, please get in touch to arrange a consultation call.
  • I'm Interested, How Can I Get Started with Ketogenic Metabolic Therapy?
    If you are interested in following the Metabolic Mental Health program or using Ketogenic Metabolic Therapy to help your physical or mental health condition, you can schedule a consultation call with me here to determine your eligibility, learn about the process and decide whether it is for you before getting started.
  • Do You Work Remotely and Worldwide?
    Yes, I can work with you wherever you are in the world, remotely, via Zoom. The information in the IKRT programs are for educational purposes only and do not intend to assess, screen or treat any medical condition, it is not medical advice.
  • How Much is the Metabolic Mental Health Program?
    The cost of the Metabolic Mental Health program and Ketogenic Metabolic Therapy is calculated on a case by case basis. This will be discussed with you during your first consultation call once I can better understand your current circumstances and needs. There are many things to consider here, such as the severity of your current physical or mental health conditions, the medications that you may be taking, your physical and mental health history, your current nutrition, diet and lifestyle, your support system, and current care needs. The amount of support needed to implement these metabolic approaches in the safest and most effective way will also be considered and discussed with you.
  • Can I Have a Call With You Before Signing Up to a Program?
    Yes absolutely. I recommend that you book a consultation call here with me to discuss your eligibility, what the program entails, how it could work for you and your health goals, and the total cost involved. At the end of the call you will have your questions answered and can make a decision as to whether you would like to start Ketogenic Metabolic Therapy or the Metabolic Mental Health program.
  • What Happens During the Consultation Call (Program Review)?
    During the one hour consultation call, we will review your eligibility for Ketogenic Metabolic Therapy or the Metabolic Mental Health program. Triage documents will be sent to you ahead of the call. These, along with your medical history will be reviewed ahead of time and discussed on the call with you. If you are eligible and happy to get started, we will begin to plan for care on the same call. If you are not eligible, if you feel it is not for you, or if I feel I do not have the expertise to help you, I will refer you to other professionals more suited to your needs.
  • Do You Take Medical or Health Insurance?
    Unfortunately, I do not accept insurance. This means if you would like to work with me you would need to self-pay.
  • Can You Help Me if I Don't Have a Psychiatrist?
    Yes I can help you even if you don't have a psychiatrist. If you have a doctor or GP in charge of your mental health care, I will liaise with them. If you don't have a professional in charge of your mental health care, I can refer you to a metabolic psychiatrist who can consult with you remotely via Zoom.
  • My Psychiatrist or Doctor Wants to Learn More About Metabolic Psychiatry, Can You Help?
    For any healthcare professionals, doctors, nurses, psychologists, counsellors, social workers or nutritionists, who want to learn more about Metabolic Psychiatry and how it can work for mental health conditions, please refer them to the Professionals Training page here. There are options to learn on-demand, and attend live educational webinars.
  • My Family Member is in an Inpatient Unit or Care Home, Can You Help?
    Yes, if your family member is in an inpatient unit or care home, you can add me, and if necessary, our dietitian, as part of their Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT). Please schedule a call with me here to discuss your situation further.
