TESTIMONY OF THE DAY
Yesterday was day 27 of my ultra low carb (nutritional ketosis) experiment of eating less than 25g of carbohydrates per day and more than 85% of my total calories from saturated fat. All of my health biomarkers have improved so well that my doctor is having a hard time believing the actual numbers. I’m totally pain-free and have cut my medications for the cerebral palsy by more than having the dosage.
I haven’t had a panic or PTSD episode in over a month and it is so nice to have a steady stream of energy throughout the day and not worrying about the insulin spikes. Most of all, I was able to literally sit in my office all afternoon yesterday (it was beautiful weather) and I achieved complete lucid awareness or oneness with reality without the use of caffeine or Modafinil lol. It really is amazing when you are finally on the path to true health because many of us don’t know what true health feels like until we are there. Thank you to Dr. Dominic D’Agostino for his ongoing research on nutritional ketosis and for Maria Wojcik Emmerich for writing her awesome book “Keto-Adapted.” In the near future, I’m going to be buying five e-copies of her book and giving them away on here. Seriously, if you have cerebral palsy, autism or any neurological, or psychological disorder, consider giving the ketogenic lifestyle a try.
