I learned about the ketogenic diet for the first time a few months ago when I was endlessly researching for cures like any other mama would do finding out your child has epilepsy. Jack was then put on a strenuous keto diet. Working with all of his doctors and dietitians, learning more and more everyday and continuing my own research. Websites, articles, medical studies and etc. you name it I read it. Then one day this company Prüvit fell into my lap. Exogenous Ketones? In ketosis after 30 minutes to an hour? No diet needed? What Bologna I thought, it takes days to weeks on a strict keto diet to get into ketosis. Until I decided to give this drink a chance.
Now, I am no fitness guru, not a scientist nor a doctor to explain ketosis and the human metabolic state but I can give my own testimony to drinking Ketones. In a month I have lost weight it would take months exercising and dieting to lose, my skin is clearing up, I have mental focus and clarity all through the day, my appetite is suppressed with less cravings, I am sleeping through the night (even in the hospital). Having a medically complex warrior son with the constant stress and burden of being his caretaker and mother are so much less. Ketones have made my life manageable and enjoyable again. To take care of my son I know I need to take care of myself first and I have found the way. I am now such an advocate for Ketones and know that everyone deserves to feel this great. I want to also thank the Prüvit community and all of my coaches because you are all so truly dedicated and inspiring!!
Being in the PICU is a very somber place to be, you fight with/for your kids, mourn with other parents and keep encouraging the medical teams to stay brave. Take a minute out of your day to share some love and appreciation to the people around you!
