Can You Prevent Alzheimer’s with Healthy Foods?
Have you ever wondered if something as simple as a healthy diet and lifestyle can protect your brain health and ultimate longevity?
Currently, nearly 5.8 million people have Alzheimer's disease in the U.S., and shockingly two-thirds of these are women. This disease doesn’t discriminate and can be one of the most challenging and painful conditions for a person and their loved ones to experience, especially with no known ‘cure’. Though these numbers are staggering and continue to grow each year, the good news is this…
Simple food and lifestyle changes can help you take control of your brain’s destiny.
I learned this as I dove deeper into my nutrition journey, but something from my friend, board-certified neurologist, and #1 NYT bestselling author, David Perlmutter, MD, made this even more clear to me. He recently produced a new docu-series, alongside 20 other global experts in brain health, which explores the steps that we can collectively take to prevent cognitive decline.
It’s called Alzheimer’s -The Science of Prevention, and in the interest of bettering public health, Dr. Perlmutter is holding a free online screening event of this incredible series.
When it comes to the brain, there’s so much information to begin to understand, but my favorite part about this series is how easy it was to familiarize myself with the basic knowledge so I could get the most out of it. And these were some of my key takeaways:
There are practical tools and evidence-based recommendations to begin using immediately that helps reduce the chances of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
I grew an even better understanding of Alzheimer’s, its potential causes, and what is actually happening in the brain.
The experts offered clear recommendations on the kinds of diet and lifestyle changes we should consider in order to live a long, healthy life that is free of brain disease.
I was enlightened with an understanding of how you can change your genetic destiny, rewire your brain’s connections, and actually grow new neurons throughout your entire life.
Specific ways you can give your brain all the support it needs to remain sharp and function properly today, tomorrow, and into old age.
Honestly, I think I could talk all day about this series because even after spending 15 years in the industry, this still shed new light on this deep minefield of health. What I think the best thing is though, is to let you enjoy it for yourself. And when you’ve watched it, be sure to let me know what you think.
