I don’t have a weight loss journey that led me to keto.
That’s not to say there’s anything wrong with that but it’s my belief body composition is just scratching the surface and is a by-product of prioritizing brain health.
Because we can’t see our brain, I find we often dismiss how we harm it on a daily basis. I learned this the hard way and it’s my life’s mission to shift perspectives through the lens of my life journey so others can choose to make changes from a state of joy and gratitude rather than pain and suffering as I experienced and was forced to reactive to a situation to save my life.
The profound benefits from ketones in regards to 🧠 health & performance come from optimally performing mitochondria and sufficient, superior, and efficient fuel to the 🧠 and body that produces less damage as a natural byproduct of metabolism.
When we’re running off of glucose for fuel predominantly, we produce more free-radicals and inflammation in the body, which damages mitochondria and create more free radicals and inflammation, which creates a damaging cycle.
Over time, from chronically elevated glucose levels and trauma to the brain (TBI, toxins, stress, depression, anxiety, etc.), the mitochondria can also become dysfunctional and begin producing less energy, storing fat, and can lead to more serious issues.
The problem with getting this message across?
There’s no way to measure WHEN issues may occur.
That’s why I share my story. I was 21 when I was diagnosed with a brain tumor even though my external looked “healthy”. Educate yourself and choose to change for the health of your 🧠 and from a state of gratitude.
