Where Keto Science Meets Society

We're on a mission to revolutionize science and medicine by refocusing attention on the importance of nutrition and metabolism in fighting disease, extending life, and improving human performance! Here's a look at what we're all about...

What people have to say about the MHS experience

What an incredible conference! Cutting edge researchers, clinicians, and scientists paired with practical, hands-on experts who are using metabolic therapies and strategies for weight loss, diabetes reversal, athletic performance, slowing the aging process, and so much more. What a wealth of information! I can’t wait for the next one!

MHS is the premier event for anyone interested in the latest science and application of low carb nutrition and ketosis. Continuing in their tradition of excellence, this year’s 5th event was bigger and better in all ways. Hats off to the team at MHS for hosting this meeting that shines light on a topic that is transforming medicine and the health of the population.

As a founder of a cancer-related non-profit, I have been to many academic and industry conferences, but never one that combines the two in such an impactful way. In the course of a long weekend, I was able to see presentations from the premier researchers in metabolic diseases and therapies, connect with physicians, nurses, dietitians, and other practitioners using metabolic therapies, and learn about dozens of new products that can make metabolic therapies easier for the population I serve. I can say unequivocally that Metabolic Health Summit was the most useful conference I’ve ever been to.

Never has a conference given me so much personally--conversations, friendships, collaborations and intellectual stimulation. The benefits are truly unquantifiable.

Last year’s event was one of the most comprehensive and well attended meetings on the subject I have participated in. I am looking forward to the upcoming Metabolic Health Summit which will again provide an overview of the wide-ranging importance of the ketogenic diet and ketones in the prevention and treatment of disease.

If you're eager to learn more about the latest science into metabolic therapies and their practical applications, you don't want to miss this event. The fact that the conference I attended in February 2017 attracted the most renowned experts in the industry and so many participants from all over the world speaks for itself: It's a great place to expand your knowledge, be inspired and connect with peers- whether you're a professional or a patient.

There are a lot of options for conferences pertaining to health and most are great but the Metabolic Health Summit stands head and shoulders above the rest. I've never experienced a better run event, both for the speakers and the attendees. The MHS folks strike an incredible balance between theory and practical, formal education and informal social connection building. If I could attend or speak at only one event, it'd be MHS.

This year’s Metabolic Health Summit was beyond informative. Hearing how ketogenic metabolic therapy can optimize many aspects of health and also mitigate disease was inspiring. Learning the science behind the growing list of benefits of ketogenic metabolic therapies is affirming. As a nutrition professional, I’m armed with new evidence to bring back to my clients. Thank you for another amazing conference. I’m looking forward to the 2021 meeting in Santa Barbara!

I found this meeting to be a unique opportunity to share, collaborate, and learn from specialists in very diverse fields, all of whom are studying ketogenic diets in different ways. I know of no other meeting with such a great mix of specialties.

Metabolic Health Summit is a compilation of thought-leaders and scientists who are pioneering the ketogenic conversation.  No other conference is able to truly bridge the gap between science and practical application.  MHS not only delivers the highest quality science and information, but also ignites a renewed purpose for ketogenic therapies and all of their potential applications.  You will leave here not only filled with an understanding of the latest science, but inspired to go out and leave a positive impact on the world.

This was my first MHS but it definitely won't be my last! The quality of the speakers with a mix of researchers and clinicians was outstanding.  Even more impressive, however, was the engagement of the attendees. Having the larger purpose of supporting The Max Love Project and The Charlie Foundation, plus providing the highest quality education created an atmosphere among the attendees that is unmatched. I look forward to coming back next year!
