Ketosis Reverse Alzheimer’s Disease
Matthew Phillips MD: Can Fasting/Ketosis Reverse Alzheimer’s Disease
Our guest today has set out to do accomplish something that decades of research and billions of dollars from the top pharmaceutical companies in the world have failed to do. That is to demonstrably reverse Alzheimer’s disease. And he proposes to validate it with what is the gold standard of evidence based medicine- the randomized controlled clinical trial. Matthew Phillips MD is a full-time clinical and research neurologist at Waikato Hospital, Hamilton, New Zealand. His foremost passion is to explore the potential feasibility, safety, and efficacy of metabolic therapies, particularly fasting and ketogenic diets, in creating alternate metabolic states that may improve not only the symptoms, but also function and quality of life, for people with a variety of difficult disorders.
