The Benefits Of A Paleo-ketogenic Lifestyle

In this piece, Dr. Sarah Myhill, one of the world’s leading physicians in the fight against both Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, is asked why we should eat a paleo-ketogenic diet. Her answer lays out the basis for her nutritional approach to both maintaining health and curing disease.

The harms of sugar and simple carbohydrates are plainly evident in our increasingly obese populations, in which chronic illness and dementias, cancers and heart and arterial disease are rife.

So what does the paleo-ketogenic diet offer us? Dr. Myhill explains that the PK diet gives us a way to eat a healthy, delicious, and well-rounded diet that is not dependent on sugars and carbohydrates for its calories. Human cells can derive energy from sugars or fats and fibres, and when we switch over into relying on the latter, we are eating in the way we have evolved to over a long period of our time on earth.

She points out that as more and more diseases are found to have an infectious driver or substrate when we eat PK, we are also starving the bacteria, yeasts, viruses, and protozoa that use sugars and carbohydrates as their fuel. They cannot thrive on fats and fibres, but we can. This represents one of our best means to avoid or treat infectious disease.

So if you want to live more vibrantly, stay at a healthy weight and sidestep many of the modern diseases of affluence, eat paleo-ketogenic. Dr. Myhill and her co-author, Craig Robinson, have written a book that’s for anyone who wants to do this. It is especially relevant to those suffering from long-term illness, and has been written in such a way that it’s both easy to follow, and put into practice.
