Paleolithic ketogenic diet (PKD): A diet covering and limited to our Characterizaton of the PKD
physiological needs • 70-100% animal based food, 0-30% plant based foods (in volume)
We have developed the PKD in 2010-2011. Previously we have been using the
paleolithic diet which proved to be ineffective in the vast majority of chronic
conditions. We believe that the PKD is the only evolutionary adapted diet for
humans. Rehabilitation of chronic diseases is most effective when the diet is
limited to our real physiological needs. Eating fruits and vegetables does not
form part of our physiological need but are associated with risks. Plant foods
can only be regarded as ”relatively” safe and only when certain plant food
items are consumed and only in limited amounts. The diet was derived from ”Diet exactly confined to our needs” ”Physiologically still tolerable diet”

ethnographic evidence, given that the application of the diet is clinical too. • Animal foods include red and fatty meats, fat and offal preferably from pasture-

• Fat:protein ratio about 2:1 (in grams)
General therapeutic steps • No nitrates, nitrites or other additives in meat products
• Discontinue all dietary supplements • Plant foods only include fruits and ”paleolithic” vegetables from organic sources
• Reconsider preexisting medication • No artificial sweeteners but honey is allowed in moderation
• In some cases vitamin D (200.000 IU during 4 days) • Black and herbal tea are excluded
• Laboratory follow-up at 3 weeks • Coffee is allowed only after full regeneration and in moderation
• Intestinal permeability test at 4 weeks • Eggs are initially excluded in those with highly elevated intestinal permeability
• Tapering of medicines is coordinated by the Paleomedicina team with and/or vaccines during the preceding 6 months

Therapeutic protocol for T1DM patients
Follow-up according to disease type/severity It is not the elevated glucose level but inflammation which causes late
complications in diabetes. Therefore:
1. Basic cases (obesity, T2DM, hypertension) • We only give insulin above 10 mmol/l blood glucose
Individual consultations, group courses • To avoid hypoglycemia we stop giving long-acting insulin 24 hours before
2. Overmedicated patient (5≤ medicines and/or beta-blocker, psychiatry starting the diet and stop short-acting insulin before the first PKD meal
drugs, antiepileptics, steroid, biological therapy, immunosuppressant): • We only give insulin to meals (as it also happens physiologically)
Always start the diet in an in-patient setting at our rehabilitation center. • There is no correction between meals. Correction may only occur at the next
3. Autoimmune disease without complications (asthma, allergy, meal
hypothyreosis, eczema): Individual consultation followed by a 2-months • C peptide is measured right before PKD onset, at day 21 then every 3 months
online follow-up program • Continuous tissue glucose monitoring at 3 weeks (across 6 days)
4. Autoimmune diseases with complications
Always start the diet in an inpatient setting. 3 weeks of a special meat
cream alone then a 2-months online program
5. Cancer patients
Start the diet in an inpatient setting, special meat cream for 3 weeks then
2-months close follow-up. Initially: imaging every 4 weeks. We advice
surgery whenever (technically) possible but advise against

Tapering preexisting medications test carried out in our patients. No other medical
intervention or diet has so far been shown to
normalize pathological intestinal permeability.
Normalization of intestinal permeability is followed by the normalization of
other biological membranes including the blood-brain barrier.

Safety issues
We never experienced side-effects or vitamin/mineral deficiencies due to the
PKD. Our longest follow-up is 7 years. The diet is safe in pregnancy and in
lactating mothers. Weaning infants onto the PKD is safe and easy too.

There is no need to personalize the diet. Our psychological needs may, however,
diverge from our physiological needs. Every human is able to eat and utilize
animal meat and fat (except for a few genetic conditions which already emerge in
infancy and usually cause early death). There is no such thing as ”metabolic
types”. Knowing the laboratory parameters associated with the PKD there is a
