The surprisingly dramatic role of nutrition in mental health
Julia Rucklidge | TEDxChristchurch
Published on Nov 10, 2014
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. In this critically important talk, clinical psychologist Julia Rucklidge explores a range of scientific research, including her own, showing the significant role played by nutrition in mental health or illness.
Julia J Rucklidge, PhD is a Professor of Clinical Psychology in the Department of Psychology at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand.
Originally from Toronto, she did her training in neurobiology (McGill) and Clinical Psychology (University of Calgary). Her interests in nutrition and mental illness grew out of her own research showing poor outcomes for children with significant psychiatric illness despite receiving conventional treatments for their conditions. For the last 6 years, she has been investigating the role of micronutrients in the expression of mental illness, specifically ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, anxiety and more recently, stress and PTSD associated with the Canterbury earthquakes.
I believe that Autism is a viral disease . 1. First virus infects the intestine (Ileocolitis) 2. Virus spreads into the organism and damages capillaries (Vasculitis). 3. Damages of neurons in the brain (Encephalitis) The final cure will be achieved by virus interference which is described in other presentations. You search for a virus which protects capillaries against the invader. I call it Rubin virus. Recently I learned about the advantage of the ketogenic diet and believe that it might cure autism. "First designed and tested as an anticonvulsant dietetic protocol in 1921 (Wilder, 1921), after nearly a century KDs are still used for the treatment of epilepsy, especially the pediatric drug resistant forms"
I have no doubt that ketogenic diet is the preferred treatment of epilepsy. I understand also why medicine still hesitates. There is a fundamental flaw in medical reasoning which will become clearer as I explain the merit of the ketogenic diet.
The starving human being embodies a law of nature. “By all means keep brain running!” All along starvation organs relinquish their resources to keep brain functioning. Ketone bodies keep brain running. Seizures are an outcry of a brain whose energy resources run out. Drugs silence brain! Starvation illustrates the general flaw of medical reasoning: Medicine regards symptoms as pathologies. Medicine treats symptoms and ignores the whole. Pathology is a misnomer since most pathologies are protective measures which I call repair. Autism is an indicator of repair. Autism and epilepsy obey the law of biology: Keep your brain running by all means. Ketogenic diet keeps it running.

The Ketogenic Diet studied by John Hopkins Medicine of Neurosurgery-http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/neurology_neurosurgery/centers_clinics/epilepsy/adult/adult-epilepsy-diet-center/index.html My daughter will be confirmed diagnosed mid August to find out if she has Neuromyelitis optica or Multiple Sclerosis both are auto immune diseases of the central nervous system Neuromyetits optica (NMO) is also known as Devic's disease, is an autoimmune disorder in which immune system cells and antibodies mistakenly attack and destroy myelin cells in the optic nerves and the spinal cord. The damage to the optic nerves produces swelling and inflammation that cause pain and loss of vision; the damage to the spinal cord causes weakness or paralysis in the legs or arms, loss of sensation, and problems with bladder and bowel function.

Benefits of a Fat-Based Ketogenic diet for your body and brain
Published on Dec 26, 2015
Best Selling Author Nora Gedgaudas gives an overview of the current science showing the huge benefits of maintaining a ketogenic state.
From the Neonate to the centenarian it seems that the well adapted ketogenic state may be of great benefit. It makes the brain run better, protects against diseases of epilepsy, cancer, inflammatory diseases (insulin resistance, heart disease, Alzheimers) and has advantages in exercise and body building. You can find her videos on UTUBE.
Nutritional Help for Multiple Sclerosis with Dr. Osborne (Vit B12)
Multiple Sclerosis can destroy the myelin coating around nerves leading to severe nerve pain and muscle weakness. These patients should see a functional medicine doctor specializing in nutrition. The vitamins most commonly deficient in patients with M.S. include:
It is also important to rule out gluten sensitivity along with food allergies and heavy metal toxicity (mercury) For more information on natural remedies for autoimmune disease please read, No Grain No Pain.
