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. Ketones are small molecules produced when your body breaks down fat.

Ketones have been shown to protect the brain and reduce inflammation. Ketogenic Metabolic Therapy goes beyond just the ketogenic diet; it's a method to increase your mitochondria and improve your metabolic health, which, in turn, can have positive impacts on both your physical and mental well-being.

 

You can achieve therapeutic levels of ketones through various methods, such as adopting a ketogenic diet, intermittent fasting, or using exogenous ketone supplements. For most individuals, the most effective approach involves customising a combination of these methods based on their lifestyle and preferences.

What Does The Research Say?

Research into the dietary aspect of this approach dates back to as early as the 1920s. The ketogenic diet is an evidence-based treatment for child and adolescent epilepsy. There is also substantial scientific evidence supporting the idea that Ketogenic Metabolic Therapy (KMT) can have several positive effects on your health. These include improving metabolic syndrome, reducing blood pressure and visceral fat (around your midsection), regulating blood sugar, insulin, and appetite levels, as well as maintaining hormone balance and increasing energy.

There's a growing body of evidence indicating that KMT can enhance brain function and memory. It may also offer support for various mental health conditions, such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and binge eating disorder. It's worth noting that while it's not officially endorsed as a therapy for these conditions, many individuals are incorporating KMT into their existing mental health care.

KMT is generally considered suitable for most people because it carries low risks and is safe when initiated correctly. However, there are some individuals for whom this approach may not be advisable.
