In this episode, Prof Grant Schofield speaks with clinical and research neurologist, Dr Matthew Phillips.

The pair discuss Matt’s passion for exploring the potential feasibility, safety, and efficacy of ‘metabolic’ therapies, such as fasting and ketogenic diets in order to improve the quality of life for people with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and a variety of additional neurological disorders.


“Ultimately, I wish to help create a new field of Metabolic Neurology that emphasises applying metabolic strategies in healthcare so as to potentially heal many difficult disorders at their core, with the overarching goal being the improved health and enhanced nobility of humanity.” – Dr Matthew Phillips
