Food ethics allow individuals to make a right choice, determine the future consequences and outcomes. Neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, Multiple Sclerosis, moto neuron, human prion and Alzheimer’s at the moment are incurable illnesses characterized by waning/weakening in social behaviour, emotional control and social communication which are mainly caused by metabolic disorder. Various therapies have been targeted and developed for their treatment. Hormesis provides fundamental sustaining neuroprotective responses for improving the accuracy of the therapeutic treatments in reducing age-related diseases and assist healthy aging. The ethics of therapeutic diet must be based majorly on providing patients the nutrients needed to recover from diseases, considering food habits, food intolerances, allergy, occupation, meal timings among others. This review examined the influence of ethics on the level of application of therapeutic food in treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. It can be concluded that several foods play vital role in averting and lowering the risk of developing neurodegenerative diseases conditions. Flexibility in tolerance to therapeutic foods in alignment with food ethics considering religion, culture, belief, passion, education, social and economic perspective among others will help in maintaining or improving the nutritional status of patients and beneficial for the brain. Hence, channeling ethics of therapeutic diet towards improving lifestyle factors and healthy hormesis in aging are germane strategies to combat incidences of neurodegenerative diseases.
