Course Description

Ketogenic Metabolic Therapy (KMT) can be a confusing and overwhelming topic, especially as we branch out into disease states other than epilepsy. This course will help you gain clarity on a variety of conditions impacted by KMT. You will learn how to screen candidates before initiating therapy while mastering the art and science of personalizing KMT. The course will give you the techniques and knowledge to manage difficult conditions through case reports as well as utilizing critical thinking skills for selecting appropriate supplements. Resources (including all PowerPoint slides) and patient/client handouts will be available for download (some for purchase) as well as access to quarterly live Q & A. Target audience: health care practitioners such as physicians, Registered Dietitian Nutritionists, nurses, pharmacists, nutritionists, Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners. We highly recommend taking the Foundational Course first if not currently experienced in KMT.

This course is clearly 2 peoples life work as Denise and Beth’s knowledge on practical & theoretical medical ketogenic therapy is vast, but they are modest. The handouts and neatly organised references are worth the course alone. The live lectures always started and finished on time, with time for questions. I decided to do a 2.5:1 and 3:1 ketogenic diet on myself and use Ketodiet Calculator. I have turned away patients in the past as I was frightened due to ignorance and thought medical ketogenic diets were just for epileptic children. I didn’t realise there was a spectrum from modified Atkins, 1:1 up to 5:1 which all have different properties, especially when dealing with mental illness situations. This course is one of those “If had known this 5 yrs ago then ……”
