Overnutrition and Neurodegenerative Diseases

Overnutrition and Neurodegenerative Diseases
September 11, 2018 Patrick Nemechek, D.O.

Overnutrition is a term that refers to how excessive nutrients can damage the human body.

The modern diet has become a common source of excessive nutrients and increases dangerous levels of systemic inflammation within the body.  The stress from the inflammation will activate the genes within our DNA and trigger or worsen common medical conditions such as cancer or diabetes.

Many are familiar with the fact that eating too many calories or excessive amounts of carbohydrates (sugars and starches) can worsen a diabetic’s blood sugar level. The blood sugar levels increase to dangerous levels not because there are too many sugars in the food.  It increases because excessive calories and carbohydrates trigger more inflammation and worsen diabetes at the genetic level.

Cooking food at high temperatures or for too long will form another dangerous nutrient called AGE (advanced glycation end product), and consuming excessive amounts of AGEs will also trigger an overnutrition reaction and worsen a diabetics blood sugar level

Saturated fats (palmitic acid) are commonly added packaged foods and if consumed in excessive amounts will also worsen the blood sugar levels through the inflammatory overnutrition reaction as well.

Reversing Overnutrition

Fortunately, you can reverse the inflammation and damage of overnutrition by activating a natural cellular repair mechanism called hormesis and can be activated through a simple eating pattern called intermittent fasting.  In order to try intermittent fasting, you simply limit the calories you eat (maximum of 600 for men and 500 for women) on one or two nonconsecutive days per week.

This is not a new dietary pattern for humans.  Our stone age ancestors naturally engaged in fasting due to scarcity of food but the over-abundance of food in our modern world has eliminated these periods of involuntary but health-promoting intermittent fasting.

Minimizes consumption of calorie dense foods, limiting your carbohydrate intake to less than 100 grams per day, avoiding mindless snacking, cooking foods at lower temperatures and adding a little intermittent fasting can go a long way towards preserving your health and even reverse some of your present medical conditions.

Dear Dr. Nemechek, does constant administration of inulin around one teaspoon a day have the potential to cure an adult male at the age of 33 from plaque alopecia? Thank you for your help. It’s wonderful what you do for all those in need, especially autistic children.

Dear Dr Nemecheck, I have been following your protocol since November 2018 with my 7 years old daughter with global developmental delay and learning disability. I have seen gains and changes in her, which I am very grateful for. A few days ago I got a diagnosis from her neurologist, its NBIA, specifically the BPAN which is extremely rare. My question is if you ever had any patients with this or similar genetic mutation. We live in Ireland so coming in person would be difficult, but I would do anything to help her if you think there is hope for… Read more »

Dear Dr. Nemechek. I was very impressed with your simple, yet remarkably effective, protocol. I know it has benefited many and would like to translate it to Hebrew so as more of my people get the chance to use it.
If you are interested, please tell me how to go about it.
Thank you very much.

Dr Nemechek,
My 4 year old son with ASD has been on your Protocol since June 2018. I’ve recently started adding fresh herbs to our foods (cilantro, parsley, oregano) – will this effect the protocol? Should I stop?
Also, I’ve always givin his inulin in two desperate doses throughout the day. I’ve recently heard it can be better to give the dose all at once?
Thank you!!

Hi Dr. Nemecheck,
We read your book and very thankful to you to make up us for new hope , my daughter (6.5Y) in the protocol for three months and we see changes in the appetite recently, she is seeking more food than usual and eating more as well.
And also she is playing with her fingers frequently which we noticed when she was 2-3 year and disappeared, but now we worried since she is more involving it again.
how we can interpret these behaviours to the protocol?

Hi Dr. N, My son has been on the protocol since April of 2018; he will be 6 the end of January 2019. We have seen some great gains in speech, a little with behavior as well as his Palilalia and complex motor stereotype. My question is…he was diagnosed with RSV at 6 days old (somehow we kept him out of the hospital and off antibiotics the whole time), is it possible this caused his SPD and other related issues? I have been reading about a direct link with RSV and cykotine release. Is it possible to reverse everything since… Read more »

Hello. I apologize if I’ve missed the answer to this. A family friend just received a diagnosis is ALS. Does your protocol help with this to slow down progression or is it too late? Thank you kindly.

I have noticed an increase of mucus in stool. I’m currently taking 3000mg DHA, the ALA, and 2 tablespoons EVOO. It seems even more so during and after a round of Rifaximin. Is this normal? I have been doing the NP for 3 months and have just finished my 2nd round of Rifaximin.

Hello Dr. Nemechek,
My son has taken anti epilepsy medicine for 1,5 years. Each 4 months we make a special blood test to see the concentration of this anti epilepsy medicine. A few days ago we made the test. It showed that concentration of the medicine in the blood of my son is too high. It has always been normal before. My son is on the Protocol for 10 days. Could the Protocol influence this process? Thank you.
Best regards.

My daughters and I are all on your protocol and having such success – thank you! For intermittent fasting for women (500 calories) would I have to count my olive oil from doing your protocol – or is that separate, as it would take up a lot of the daily calorie allowance, I imagine!

Hi my 3.5 son has been on your Protocol for a month and has tiny gains. He has not gone through the awakening phase is that because he has a mild autisim or is it still coming? His does are 1/2tsp Inulin, 1.25ml Nordic Naturals Fish Oil and 1.5-2tbsp of oil. Should I change this? Thanks!!

I really want to try intermittent fasting, I’ve heard of so many benefits. Is there a period of time where your body will need to transition to feel the effects?

Hello Dr. Nemechek, My 8 year old minimally verbal daughter on the spectrum has been suffering from massive pain issues for one year now. She gets massive pain in her head, hands and legs which turn very hot and red sometimes. When it’s bearable she tells and writes explaining it, but beats herself miserably when the pain gets unbearable. This issue started after a series of viral and bacterial infections last year. We have been to many doctors, did tons of tests and tried a lot of medicines, but nothing is helping other than antibiotics. Could this be an autonomic… Read more »

Dear Dr Nemechek,

I’m 26 and I’ve suffered from severe hyperhidrosis and therefore sympathetic overdrive since age 8. I’ve recently started your protocol and I feel much better mentally.

Sadly I’m still unable to work, so I’m keen to know if the nervous system heals at the same rate as the brain?

Also, I’m considering a 3 day water fast to speed up the recovery of my nervous system. Do you think it would be alright to break from your protocol for this purpose?

Your advice is greatly appreciated, thank you.

Kind regards,

Georgia

Dr Nemechek,

Our entire family is on your protocol and we have seen substantial gains in our child on the spectrum and our child who has some red flags. I have a question for you concerning a product that I recently read about called Clarifi. It’s a saliva test that detects autism and claims to measure molecules in the saliva. I’m curious to know your opinion on this product. Thanks!

My daughter’s first child is 4 and non-verbal autism. He just started this Protocol 10 days ago. My daughter is 19 weeks pregnant with child number 2. Should she also be on Protocol and is it completely safe during pregnancy?

Hello Dr Nemechek. I am from Macedonia and I am a mother of 14 years old girl who has suffered a stroke seven years ago. After that she has right side hemiplegia and epilepsy. I was wondering if I can start with the protocol but I am afraid because of the epilepsy. And if I start how to do that.
Thanks.

I have been suffering from chronic fatigue for 6 years. I started taking inulin and had something that happened to me before. Half of my tongue gets numb stinging swollen and turned white ( low blood flow). I looked for what it could be and it looks like raynaud attack. I never had any problem like that before until I started taking inulin. I haven’t stopped it. But now that I got this attack 4 times already, I wonder if I should stop it.

Dear Dr Nemechek,

I have another question thanks. I read in your book that I should not take multivitamins or probiotics during your protocol (which I don’t). However, I do take a few other supplements (only vitamins and minerals). Should I stop taking these?

Thank you and kind regards,

Georgia

Dear Dr Nemechek,

I have recently started your protocol and I feel so much better already – thank you. I have a couple of questions regarding this please.

I suffer from fructose malabsorption and I’m wondering if it’s ok for me to take inulin after Rifaximin (for food intolerances)?

I’m also on Modified Citrus Pectin (Pectasol-C) to detoxify heavy metals, is it alright to stay on this during the protocol?

Kind regards,

Georgia

Hi we love you my son is on the oils and wow what a difference in my autistic 19 year old. Can’t wait for our appt in December with you. I have a question my healthy 22 year old daughter has bradycardia standing and working as a nurse she will feel faint and bpm is. 35 -43. No thyroid issues doesn’t take any meds and doesn’t drink smoke etc. no heart defects.

Do you think this is an autonomic system issue and would your protocol and VNS help ?

Good evening Dr. So do patients on the rifaximin have negative responses? Would my sons negative response to inulin lead to believe that he needs the rifaximin instead of inulin? Thank you for your expertise.

Hi Dr N!! We love you and our son has been on your protocol since may (doing great) and we loved our Skype call with you. My question is about ME ! I have alopecia areata. It’s gotten worse with the day to day stress and heartache of having an autistic son. My Derm told me to “pulse” oral prednisone. I’m also on the protocol and it’s helped me with my anxiety. My hair is still an issue. I’m confident it will grow back with the Nemecheck protocol but with my excessive stress do you think I should go on… Read more »

Hi Dr. Nemechek,
I read your book and started the protocol a couple of month ago. My child was on inulin for a while and then on Rifaximin. Should she resume inulin after finishing Rifaximin?
