What the Study Results Showed
At the end of the study, the weekly average pain was reduced in both groups as well as an improvement in quality-of-life scores for both groups. The pain reduction persisted at the three-month follow-up.  It’s no surprise that removal of ultra-processed foods would result in a general feeling of well-being. However, the well-formulated ketogenic group had a greater degree of pain reduction, as well as a decrease in hs-CRP and body weight.
This type of intervention is notable as it highlights the distinct difference between ketogenic physiology and glucose-based metabolism. The removal of ultra-processed foods for some is enough to create robust health, but for others, a more significant shift must occur for those individuals to experience relief from inflammation and pain.
Bio-individuality at its finest because after all…food is information.
