When it comes to keeping our brains healthy, one of the tools at our disposal is far from new. In fact, it has been around since the beginning of human history.
The health benefits of fasting are well-established, and it turns out that the brain may benefit from the metabolic reset that fasting enables. Keto diets fall into this same category. A combination of the two may be able to help ward off a variety of degenerative conditions and help us maintain brain health as we age.
In this podcast, Dr. Matthew Phillips, a clinical neurologist, talks about his research and experience with using fasting to address Alzheimers, Parkinsons, epilepsy and other conditions. Our discussion offers food for thought on the use of dietary interventions to improve metabolic health.
