A three-year-old girl from Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire who is suffering from a rare genetic disorder was able to speak her first words thanks to a diet that involves eating four tubs of cream cheese a week.
Fields Taylor was diagnosed with a condition known as Glut1 Deficiency which impacted her ability to speak.
AdvertisementShe was put on high-fat Ketogenic Diet for over three months in order to make her body use fat as the energy source instead of glucose, which her body was unable to transport in enough quantities to the brain.
"The first time I heard Fields say Mum it was just wonderful. I didn't really believe that something so simple as changing her diet could make such a big different. The amount of Philadelphia she goes through is a bit mad but the effect it's had is amazing. It's just fabulous to know that she does have a voice inside her and we can finally communicate", her mother Stevie said.
