"Understanding all the contributing causes of mental health disorders—and how they fit together for each individual—allows people to create effective treatment strategies and improve mental health."

Dr. Chris Palmer Author of Brain Energy

"Our research shows that even a small decrease in carbohydrates and a modest increase in ketones can be beneficial for the brain. So let’s not throw the baby out with the bathwater by having preconceived notions about what will or won’t improve symptoms."

Dr. Stephen Cunnane Leading brain metabolism researcher at University of Sherbrooke

"Every person’s psychological history is different, but I’ve seen people from all walks of life benefit from understanding the intricate relationship between diet, cognitive function, and brain metabolism."

Caroline Beckwith

Caroline struggled with debilitating anorexia for more than fifteen years. She was stuck in a revolving door, going in and out of in-patient treatment centers, unable to find sustainable relief from her illness. She had given up hope of ever living a normal life. Her decision to try ketogenic therapy changed everything. She put her anorexia into complete remission and now works a full-time job. She is engaged and happily living the healthy life she once thought was impossible.

Ben Rolnik

Ben was feeling like a failure as a father. Despite being aware of the most cutting-edge treatments in precision medicine as the director of Stanford's Healthcare Innovation Lab, he could not find an effective treatment for the severe depression he has struggled with since childhood. He tried numerous pharmaceuticals and biohacking techniques, but nothing brought him lasting relief. It wasn't until discovering the work of Metabolic Mind that he finally found the treatment that put his depression into remission: ketogenic therapy. He is now thoroughly enjoying life as a father.

Hannah Warren

Hannah experienced three severe manic episodes that required hospitalization. She was diagnosed with bipolar 1 disorder and told she had a chronic illness that would require medications for the rest of her life. Side effects of her antipsychotics included extreme weight gain, constant brain fog, and fatigue. Ketogenic therapy transformed her life, fully restoring her physical and mental health so that she no longer needs medication. Rather than labeling herself bipolar, she shares that she is in remission from neurometabolic dysfunction.

Kit Keyser

Kit was on medications to treat bipolar 1 that caused him to gain weight and develop a movement disorder. When he read that the keto diet is an effective treatment for epilepsy, he wondered if it might also help him since he was taking an antiepileptic medication to treat his mental illness. It ended up being game-changing, enabling him to taper off all his medications and optimize his physical health. He finds ketogenic therapy easy to maintain because, unlike other forms of treatment, it is actually enjoyable, and has side benefits rather than side effects.

Matt Baszucki

Matt Baszucki was a freshman at UC Berkeley when he had his first manic episode. He lived a turbulent life after his bipolar 1 diagnosis; he fled a facility, hitchhiked, and spent time homeless. Despite positive lifestyle changes and trying more than 29 medications, he never got fully well and was labeled treatment-resistant. In reality, he just needed a more effective treatment. After only 4 months of ketogenic therapy, Matt was himself again. He ultimately put his illness into complete remission and is now working full-time as a tech professional and is dedicated to helping others.

Iain Campbell

For years, Dr. Iain Campbell struggled with severe depression and incessant suicidal ideation. He was diagnosed with bipolar 2 disorder. He originally went on the ketogenic diet to lose weight and was surprised to experience a sudden and complete transformation in his mental state as the “lights turned back on” in his brain. He put his illness into remission and has since devoted his life to helping others. He is a pioneering researcher in metabolic psychiatry at the University of Edinburgh and lives a happy, fulfilling life as a husband, father, and beacon of hope for others suffering from mental disorders.
