Keto for PD: The William Curtis Story

Mike Mutzel from High-Intensity Health (author of Belly Fat Effect) talks to William Curtis about his PD journey and how a ketogenic diet changed his life. Curtis suffered from PD for over 17 years before he started exercising, fasting, and following a low-carb, ketogenic diet that remarkably improved his PD symptoms. Through trial and error, Curtis found the right balance in his diet. The William Curtis’ program for easing PD symptoms is not appropriate for everyone. For example, PD patients that have balance problems could do more harm to themselves if they followed Curtis’ diet. After 12 hours of fasting through the night, Curtis has a bulletproof coffee in the morning prepared with butter, heavy cream, coconut oil, and Stevia. This helps his PD symptoms and increases the ketone D-betahydroxybutyrate (BHB).
