NEED FOR QUALIFIED MEDICAL GUIDANCE

NEED FOR QUALIFIED MEDICAL GUIDANCE

A few words about what this website is not about.  This website will not address the validity or wisdom of any particular diet such as the vegan diet, the carnivore diet, the Whole30 diet, or even questions posed by some about organic farming, environmental issues, and related concerns.  These diets may be helpful to some people for any number of reasons meriting further research, but that is beyond the scope of our purpose here.  The medical ketogenic diet covered by this website can be initiated in any form of the foregoing diets so long as the diet consists of appropriate foods in the right macros sufficient to yield circulating ketones in therapeutic ranges.   

In addition, nothing on this website is intended as medical, psychiatric, or legal advice. No attorney-client or doctor-patient relationship is created, intended, or implied, by virtue of any information published on this website, including responses to inquiries. The information contained on this website is provided for informational purposes related to the fundraising and other charitable purposes for which The MH Paradox Foundation was created. Any individual who is interested in implementing any nutritional or dietary strategy, including but not limited to the ketogenic diet, fasting, or any modified versions of these interventions, for any medical or mental health condition is strongly encouraged to seek advice and oversight by qualified physicians and/or mental health providers. The treatment team must be qualified to treat not only the underlying condition or illness and experienced in the details of the ketogenic diet and fasting in general, as well as the metabolic changes which occur with these interventions and coordinated associated medication management. Like most treatments for illnesses of any kind, these interventions are not do-it-yourself remedies. Quite the contrary, one of the purposes of The MH Paradox Foundation is to promote discussion, raise awareness, raise funds for research, and to inspire qualified physicians and mental health providers to become educated about these interventions in order to provide relevant services for those who need them.
