Re: After 17 hours fast, only mild ketosis

A lot depends on what she is willing to eat. Some time back I made fat bombs. They are refrigerated after mixing, th...

Re: After 17 hours fast, only mild ketosis

Maybe talking on the phone with her siblings would help? And the churches are open now, with masks. I know the zoom gets tedious. Do check out one of the Doctors listed on Dr Bredesen's website at Apollo Health Co. They will have other ideas for you. Good luck, and know that you are doing an incred...

Re: After 17 hours fast, only mild ketosis

RE: can we squeeze some more improvement in thyroid? I don't know. I'm not a thyroid expert by any means, but the numbers don't look too bad. Bredesen does set TSH as < 2.0.
