The Diet Revolution: Neuroprotective & Disease-Modifying Effects

 The Diet Revolution: Neuroprotective & Disease-Modifying Effects Course Description:

  • An increasing number of data demonstrate the utility of various diets in a variety of metabolic diseases and neurodegenerative disorders (NDD). Neurodegenerative diseases are illnesses that affect the brain, specifically neurons. The most common symptoms caused by these diseases include malfunctions in balance, respiration, movement, reflexes, motor skills, or even in heart beat activity. There are various risk factors that influence the incidence of NDD, these can be genetic, or non-genetic factors. Nutrition is the non-genetic factor that has shown the greatest influence on NDD incidence and development. The common factor in most NDD and metabolic diseases is a state of chronic inflammation, which is greatly influenced by nutrition. This course will explore the scientific data connecting diet and disease. Specific diets covered along with their scientific evidence included: the Ketogenic diet, fasting diet protocols, plant-based diets, the Paleo Diet, the Autoimmune Diet Protocol (AIP), the Wahls protocol, Gluten-free, casein-free diets, and FODMAP.
