Metabolic neurology is a growing field focusing on the connection between metabolic and neurologic health, and encompasses neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, other types of dementia, and more. Dr. Matthew Phillips is leading the way as a clinician and researcher exploring the use of metabolic therapies, like intermittent fasting and nutritional ketosis to help treat and prevent neurocognitive diseases. Dr. Phillips shares with us what he has learned from his research studies, and what he feels are the top tips for neurologic and brain health. He also explores how metabolic therapies can, and should, usher in a new era of healthcare.
