    Parkinson's Symptoms Improved With a Meat-Based Keto Diet: Asher's Story

    Parkinson's Symptoms Improved With a Meat-Based Keto Diet: Asher's Story

    Asher Adelman (@primalwellness) shared his father's remarkable improvements in Parkinson's symptoms from adopting a meat-based keto diet.
    Asher is CEO at LIFE Health and Wellness Center, a mental health clinic with locations in Las Vegas and Henderson, Nevada.  
    "This is my 82-year-old father. Unfortunately, he has late-stage Parkinson's disease. For the past couple of years, he has deteriorated, both physically and mentally, at a steady and increasingly rapid rate. During the past few months, he had become almost completely disabled. He was unable to stand without falling, he couldn't get up out of a chair or couch, and he certainly wasn't able to walk (even with a walker). His cognition had also significantly declined. He had lost his personality, his sense of humor, and the ability to participate in a simple conversation. He had also forgotten how to do such things as to turn on and use the computer and TV.

    My father's neurologists and doctors had informed us when he was first diagnosed with Parkinson's that he, like all Parkinson's patients, would experience a steady decline in functioning and that there was nothing, medication or otherwise, that could stop or reverse the decline. The only hope was that the decline might be slowed somewhat by the medication that was prescribed to him. Not surprisingly, none of his doctors had suggested that diet might impact his symptoms, either positively or negatively.

    Although I have been on a carnivore diet for almost a year and have experienced many physical and mental health benefits from this way of eating, I believed all of the medical experts that nothing, including diet, could help my father's condition, so I hadn't tried to convince him to change his diet (which has always been rich in carbs and sugar). I figured that he's suffering enough, at least he should be able to enjoy his donuts and ice cream.

    But about two months ago, I could no longer keep my mouth shut and told my parents my belief that my father's low-cholesterol, low-fat diet (which had been prescribed to him by his doctor 30 years ago) was responsible for his brain becoming malnourished and inflamed and that this had caused or contributed to him developing Parkinson's disease. I suggested that my father eat mostly fatty beef, eggs, liver, and butter, and that he cut down on the amount of grains, sugar, and seed oils that he consumes."
