Anticonvulsants suppress epileptic seizures, but they neither cure nor prevent the development of seizure susceptibility. The development of epilepsy (epileptogenesis) is a process that is poorly understood. A few anticonvulsants (valproate, levetiracetam and benzodiazepines) have shown antiepileptogenic properties in animal models of epileptogenesis. However, no anticonvulsant has ever achieved this in a clinical trial in humans. The ketogenic diet has been found to have antiepileptogenic properties in rats.
Ang aming mga programa ay likas at gamitin ang kakayahan ng katawan upang makamit ang mga tiyak na layunin na nasusukat, sa halip na pagpapasok ng mga mapanganib na kemikal, kontrobersyal na kapalit ng hormone, mga di-nais na operasyon, o nakakahumaling na droga. Nais naming mabuhay ka sa isang buhay na may pagganap na natutupad na may higit na lakas, positibong saloobin, mas mahusay na pagtulog, at mas kaunting sakit. Ang aming layunin ay upang ganap na bigyang kapangyarihan ang aming mga pasyente upang mapanatili ang pinakamalusog na paraan ng pamumuhay.
Because some cancer cells are inefficient in processing ketone bodies for energy, the ketogenic diet has also been suggested as a treatment for cancer. A 2018 review looked at the evidence from preclinical and clinical studies of ketogenic diets in cancer therapy. The clinical studies in humans are typically very small, with some providing weak evidence for anti-tumour effect, particularly for glioblastoma, but in other cancers and studies, no anti-tumour effect was seen. Taken together, results from preclinical studies, albeit sometimes contradictory, tend to support an anti-tumor effect rather than a pro-tumor effect of the KD for most solid cancers.
