Welcome to Protecting Your Nest. Amy Berger, MS, CNS, is a U.S. Air Force veteran and Certified Nutrition Specialist who specializes in helping people do “Keto Without the Crazy.”™ She has a master’s degree in human nutrition and writes about a wide range of health and nutrition-related topics, such as insulin, metabolism, weight loss, diabetes, thyroid function, and more. She has presented internationally on these issues and is the author of The Alzheimer's Antidote: Using a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet to Fight Alzheimer’s Disease, Memory Loss, and Cognitive Decline, and The Stall Slayer: Seven Roadblocks to Keto Fat Loss and What to Do About Them.
Alzheimer’s and dementia are the topics of discussion in this episode. The root cause of many chronic diseases can be traced back to metabolic syndrome. This is why Dr. Berger has the idea to use keto/low-carb as a dietary intervention for people struggling with diseases of the brain or as a preventative measure to reduce the possibility of having these diseases in the future.
How many patients with chronic diseases and other medical conditions could be helped with a change to the keto or low-carb diet? Dr. Berger thinks there are a lot. Dietary intervention can have very powerful effects—especially in our current food climate of processed foods and sugar.
