I am experimenting with the Keto diet and autophagy to see if it improves my eye condition. I have AMD (age related macular degeneration).
I now call it AMR - age related macular regeneration as that is what I am interested in and I do think that regenerative medicine will be the medicine of the future.
Autophagy is the the body's self cleansing mechanism, and it appears to be activated by a combination of the Keto diet and intermittent fasting.
All healthy stuff, and weight loss and great energy appear to be a bonus (I have been doing this for just 3 - 4 weeks). It is fascinating.
Good starting points for research I have found are academic research papers, Drs Jason Fung and Michael Mosley on YouTube, and the work of Nobel prizewinner for autophagy, Dr Yoshinori Ohsumi.
am writing this at sunrise and another lovely day is forecast..
