Autoimmune Diseases


The first step to solving a problem is to admit that one exists.

So, this is why the Hart Ketogenic Clinic came about. We help people stop and even reverse their Autoimmune Disease/s. There are today more than 100 and new ones are discovered yearly.

What is an Autoimmune Disease?

It's the result when the immune system mistakenly attacks the body's own tissues. Your body is totally confused. Humans have evolved over 2.5 million years, during which time our immune system was designed to attack one enemy only - infection. Your gut is forced to fight thousands of enemies it has never seen or encountered before, or not as yet got used to. Evolution takes a long time. Multiple inflammations from polyunsaturated fats and man made fats (trans fats), sugar - in gigantic proportions as well as other highly processed carbohydrates. Stress in today's society is causing havoc for your gut. Pesticides, chemicals in personal care products (hair dye), prescribed medicine, polluted air, sick houses covered in mould, plastic in the oceans affecting marine life and humans - well the list goes on. Most of the problems/ illnesses start in the gut regardless of trigger.

Autoimmune diseases can affect almost any part of the body, including the heart, brain, nerves, muscles, skin, eyes, joints, lungs, kidneys, glands, the digestive tract and blood vessels.

Every Chronic Disease is an INFLAMMATORY Disease

So let's look at some of the most common autoimmune diseases.

Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

This is simply caused by over consumption of sugar/ carbs resulting in Insulin Resistance. You may be pre diabetic for some 30 years or so before you are diagnosed with fully fledged diabetes type 2. In fact it can start in early childhood. (some cases in the womb, frightening development)

Alzheimer's Disease - also know as Type 3 Diabetes

If you have type 2 diabetes you are 50% more likely to get Alzheimer's disease. This is a neurological disease (brain) and the brain's ability to take up sufficient energy from carbs diminishes after the age of 40, resulting in a gradual downward spiral causing memory loss and a slow death. The only way to reverse this is to change your fuel source to ketones, which is a clean and efficient fuel source, easily absorbed by the brain cells. Aluminium has been associated with the disease as well.

Parkinson's Disease

Similar to Alzheimer's disease, however more associated with frequent hits to the head. For example boxing, football and other sports. Exogenous ketones would be an excellent prevention and may slow or stop the onset, however your diet plays a major part as well.

Cancer (umbrella name)

Cancer cells need glucose to live and thrive. This was discovered by Otto Warberg who received the Nobel prize in medicine in 1931. Cancer cells CANNOT live and thrive on ketones. However your healthy cells love this efficient and clean fuel. This is why the Hart Ketogenic Plan is so important to implement as soon as you have been given the diagnosis.

Below are other common autoimmune diseases where we feel the Hart Ketogenic Plan will improve if not reverse the condition/s.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Psoriasis/ Acne/ Eczema Sjögrens Disease
Multiple Sclerosis MS Inflammatory Bowl Syndrome IBS Lupus
Hashimoto's Celiac Disease Fibromyalgia
