Abridged from an article by Dr Bruce Fife, ND.

Ketone therapy is the most powerful therapy available for the treatment of chronic and degenerate disease. Since most of us will experience chronic disease at some point in our lives knowing how to prevent, delay, or reverse it can be extremely valuable.
Drug therapy has been a dismal failure in treating chronic disease. Vaccines, surgery, radiation, and advanced medical technology have all failed when it comes to treating or preventing chronic or degenerative disease.
While standard medical approaches have failed, there is an effective therapy. This therapy does not rely on drugs, surgery, or medical technology. It is a dietary approach that draws on the body’s own powers of rejuvenation and healing. It’s called ketone therapy.
Ketones are a special type of fuel the body makes from fat. The ketogenic diet is a diet that stimulates the body’s production and utilization of ketones. The ketogenic diet is one that is very low in carbohydrate, high in fat, with moderate protein. This diet shifts the body into a natural, healthy metabolic state known as nutritional ketosis.
In nutritional ketosis the body uses fat as its primary source of energy instead of glucose. Some of this fat is converted into ketones. Ketones are high-potency fuel that boost energy and cellular efficiency and activate special enzymes and genes that regulate cell survival, repair, and growth. When a person is in nutritional ketosis, blood levels of ketones are elevated to therapeutic levels. In response, body chemistry and metabolism normalizes and overall health improves.
Low-fat diets have been heavily promoted for the past several decades as the answer to obesity and chronic disease. However, we are fatter and sicker now more than ever before. Obviously, the low-fat approach has not worked. Our bodies actually need fat for optimal health, and function more efficiently using fat for fuel.
Ketone therapy is more than just a diet, it is a tool that uses nutrition and healthy dietary fats (specifically coconut oil) to shift the body into a metabolic state that resets the body’s internal chemistry, re-establishing homeostasis or equilibrium, reversing chronic degenerative disease and improving digestion and immune function. In the process, blood pressure normalizes, blood cholesterol levels improve, excess weight and body fat melts off, energy levels increase, blood sugar and insulin levels normalize, memory and cognitive skills improve, the gut microbiome comes into balance, eyesight improves, and hormone levels improve, the entire body feels the effects.
Ketone therapy is backed by decades of medical and clinical research, and has proven to be both safe and effective for the treatment of variety of health issues, including the following:
- Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
- Traumatic brain injury
- Multiple sclerosis
- Sleep disorders
- Types I and II diabetes
- Metabolic syndrome
- Heart failure
- Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
- Crohn’s disease
- Ulcerative colitis
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Side effects of chemo and radiation therapy
- Exposure to toxic chemicals
- Macular degeneration
- Rheumatoid arthritis
It doesn’t stop there. Research is continually discovering conditions that are responding to the ketogenic diet. Many health problems that medical science has deemed incurable or untreatable are being reversed. Medications that were once relied on daily are no longer necessary and are being tossed away.
All ketogenic diets are not alike however; some of the so-called ketogenic diets promoted on the internet and in many books are actually just low-carb or high-protein diets masquerading as ketogenic diets and may not even be ketogenic all. These pseudo ketogenic diets may have some benefit because they limit carbohydrate consumption, but they do not share all of the health benefits documented with an actual ketogenic diet.
The ketone therapy is more than just a diet or a weight loss aid, when followed correctly it is a potentially powerful treatment that can prevent, stop, and reverse nearly all forms of chronic disease. In essence, it can reverse the aging process.
That’s why my new book on ketone therapy is so badly needed. Ketone Therapy: The Ketogenic Cleanse and Anti-Aging Diet, gives you the facts about the ketogenic diet and describes in some detail the many uses for the diet that go far beyond weight loss and blood sugar control. It explains the reason why coconut oil is so important to the success of the ketogenic diet and the secret that makes coconut oil the healthiest dietary oil on the planet—without question. The book explains how to use a proper ketogenic diet to rebalance the gut microbiome and heal digestive disorders like Crohn’s disease, reverse metabolic syndrome, prevent heart attacks and strokes, cure autoimmune disease…what was that? Did I say “cure” autoimmune disease? Yes! The science is there, both animal studies and human clinical trials have proven the amazing benefits to ketone therapy. It doesn’t stop there, ketones can boost immune function, protecting you against infectious illnesses and environmental toxins, and can even regenerate your immune system! Everything in the book is based on published medical research and confirmed by the experiences of people who have used ketone therapy successfully to overcome their health problems. This may be the most important health book you will ever read.
