Oxford University: Ketogenic Diet (KD) on Parkinson’s disease since May 2011. http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01364545 …..Johns Hopkins KD protocol: http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01364545 ….KD and PD, Alzheimer’s & Brain Trauma review: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2367001/……KD & brain tumors: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1819381/ ….WIth Glioblastoma multiforme (inconclusive)…..(http://www.nutritionandmetabolism.com/content/7/1/33/ ……Duke U: 70-yr old life-long schizophrenic pt., symptoms significantly abated after 3 weeks on KD (report also gives useful detail on how to do KD, though there are books on it: google also Mary Newport, MD, for alzheimer resource): http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2652467/ ….mouse study applying KD to multiple sclerosis: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22567104 wherein KD is seen to have protective effects. Personal experience of chronic neurolyme was greatly aided by KD as well. One can do KD with eggs or tofu if not a meat-eater. ….Diabetic persons should absolutely consult their doctor; I am not aware of Diabetes 1 persons doing the KD, nor if it is possible in their cases….Best wishes to all and I hope this helps any who read and test KD for themselves….Usually, the dieter/caregiver detects some improvements (such as reduction in joint pains, depression, constipation, etc) around Day 7, though as Newport’s work shows major effects continue after months.
