Keto For Mental Health: Using A High-Fat, Low-Carb Diet For Alzheimer’s, Depression, and Anxiety with Amy Berger, MS, CNS, NTP — #013

by | Sep 29, 2017 | ketoforwomen

This week’s episode is dedicated to learning more about how a ketogenic diet can improve and even reverse cognitive diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia and also mental health issues such as anxiety and depression.  This is an important subject to discuss, not only to help those we know who have already been diagnosed, but also in prevention for ourselves and loved ones.  To do so, I enlisted the help of Amy Berger, MS, CNS, NTP and author of The Alzheimer’s Antidote, as a guest on the show to bring her knowledge on the topic and so much more about her low-carb journey.  We even have differing opinions on a few subjects as it relates to keto vs. low-carb!


  • How Amy got started with a low-carb, ketogenic diet
  • Why she loves eating a low-carb diet
  • Our differing opinions on amounts of dietary fats and carbs
  • The “paralysis by analysis” effects of a keto diet in today’s world
  • Alzheimer’s as type 3 diabetes
  • Why the keto diet works in Alzheimer’s patients
  • Keto for depression and anxiety
  • The role exogenous ketones can play in these diseases

Hey there, I'm Shawn!

I’m obsessed with nitro cold brew, 90% dark chocolate, and helping coaches and practitioners build a business they love. With nothing but a passion for helping others and the desire to never have a boss again, I quit the corporate world and built my own million dollar coaching business over the past decade. Now, I help others do the same.
