Each of these aliments, however, results from damage to nerve cells and conventional medicine offers little in the way of long term hope for anyone suffering from either AD or PD. Once damaged, brain cells have a difficult time utilizing glucose for energy in the normal manner and damage tends to increase as the condition progresses. In response to this medical crisis, many professionals have begun to advocate a ketogenic diet to reduce symptoms and promote healing of the cellular damage which ultimately underlies the development of the neurological condition at hand (1).
