Reduce Seizures on the Ketogenic Diet
New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Reduce Seizures on the Ketogenic Diet?
hey guys dr. Burke here in this video we’re going to talk about seizures and the ketogenic diet okay doing keto is the most effective thing you can do if you have epilepsy alright why is that because when you run your body on this alternative fuel source which is ketones versus glucose you severely reduce the stress on the brain it’s a more efficient fuel and to get in ketosis you have to drop your carbohydrates down or do fasting or I recommend do a combination of both okay couple of things that will do it will increase your mitochondria which is your energy factories of the brain specifically in the structure of the brain called the hippocampus so it supports hippocampus ketone help this structure in the brain which is involved in spatial memory like a your ability to locate yourself in time and space like going in a room like where I go where am I going where like where did I come from that type of thing memory in general and has a big role in epilepsy okay so this structure right here and ketones support that ketones slow neuro degeneration so ketones are neural protective they protect the neurons of the nerve cell but seizures develop from excess glutamate now what is that glutamate is an amino acid and it’s basically a neurotransmitter 90% of the brain uses this neurotransmitter to communicate it’s an excitatory neurotransmitter and so what happens when you run your body on glucose too much of it in too much insulin you start developing too much glutamate and that becomes toxic or cytotoxic that’s really what’s creating the misfiring and the disruption of the neurons in the brain that leads to seizures now the other opposing neurotransmitter is called GABA that’s inhibitory ketones support gaba and they don’t support glutamate so it helps balance this thing out so you have you you have the situation where it instantly puts the brain in the situation where you just don’t have this condition anymore so so it’s improves increases gaba neuroprotective ketones are anti-seizure i have anti seizure effects and if you have not done this and you have seizures you definitely need to research this look into in a minute fasting look into how to do ketosis and really understand what insulin resistance is I I’ll put a link down below for some research you can check out and some ways to do this and then share the results thanks for watching hey if you haven’t already subscribed press this little button down below okay thanks

Dr. Berg talks about the relationship between seizures and the ketogenic diet. Using ketones as your primary fuel source will greatly reduct epileptic seizures because it supports a specific neurotransmitter GABA. Running your brain on glucose supports another neurotransmitter called glutamate, which then the brain can become cytotoxic. Ketones support a structure in the brain called the hypocampus, which has a major role in seizures.
Hey guys, Dr. Berg here. In this video we are going to talk about seizures and the ketogenic diet. Doing keto is the most effective thing you can do if you have epilepsy because when you ran your body in this alternative fuel-source which is ketones versus glucose, you severely reduce the stress on the brain, it is a more efficient fuel and to get into ketosis you have to drop your carbohydrates down or do a fasting or I recommend to do both. A couple of things you can do is you increase your mitochondria which is your energy factor of your brain especially in the structure of the brain called the hippocampus, so it supports the hippocampus and ketones helps this structure of the brain which is involved in spacial memory like your ability to locate yourself in time and space, memory in general and it has a big role in epilepsy and ketones support that. Ketones slow neurodegeneration, ketones are neuroprotective and they protect the neuro or the nerve cell. Seizure develop from the excess glutamate. Glutamate is an amino acid and is basically a neurotransmitter. 90% of the brain uses this neurotransmitter to communicate excitatory neurotransmitter. When you ran your body on glucose, too much of it and too much insulin, you start developing too much glutamate and that becomes toxic or cytotoxic and that’s really creating the misfiring and the disruption of the neurons in the brain that leads to seizures. The other opposing neurotransmitters called GABA, that’s inhibitory. Ketones support GABA and they don’t support glutamate. It helps balance this thing out. You have this situation where it instantly puts the brain in the situation where you just don’t have this condition anymore. It increases GABA, neuroprotective, ketones have anti-seizure effects. And if you have not done this and you have seizures you definitely have to research this, look in to how to do intermittent fasting and how to do ketosis and really understand what insulin resistance is.
