What Chance Do We Have?
The airwaves today are full of doctors arguing over the right diet. (See BBC News link at bottom of page)
The National Obesity Forum has published a report saying that the High Fat, Low Carb diet is the one to follow.
That has brought the entire health establishment out in force, arguing that the high fat diet leads to obesity.
So, in the face of diametrically opposite opinions, how are we supposed to decide what diet is best for managing Parkinson’s?
I read about this in great detail in my early days of research and went for the high-fat diet for these two reasons:
1. A research study by Columbia University, New York showed that the ketogenic (high fat) diet reduced Parkinson’s symptoms by 43% in 28 days
2. The past 40+ years of low-fat dietary has seen an epidemic-level growth in chronic disease.
So, I stopped eating all carbohydrates and pursued the high-fat diet. The rest, as they say, is history.
My Parkinson’s stopped progressing and my symptoms reversed. Others are achieving the same happy outcome.

One question hangs in the air. What if I was wrong?
Well, that wasn’t of much concern, as I’d been informed at my diagnosis, that Parkinson’s was incurable and degenerative. So I felt I had nothing to lose!
