humanOS: Ketones for brain injury

Tommy joins Greg Potter on the HumanOS podcast to discuss the potential use of ketones to treat brain injury.


In this episode of humanOS Radio Greg speaks with Dr. Tommy Wood. Tommy is Senior Fellow in the Pediatrics Department at the University of Washington, Visiting Research Scientist at the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition, Chief Scientific Officer of Nourish Balance Thrive, and President of Physicians for Ancestral Health. Tommy’s academic work focuses on neonatal brain injury, and in the years to come he plans to study how to manipulate diet to minimize the negative effects of such injury.

In this podcast we explore many subjects, including:

  • The number of people affected by brain injuries

  • Which groups of people are at highest risk of brain injury

  • Whether the time of day at which brain injuries take place influences subsequent injury severity

  • How early-life brain injury affects risk of disease later in life

  • The treatment of brain injury in newborn kids

  • What pregnant women can do to protect the foetus against brain injury

  • How dietary fat composition affects risk of brain injury

  • Whether creatine monohydrate can help protect athletes against concussion

  • Using exogenous ketones for brain injury

  • And more!
