Keeping our brain healthy, avoiding depression, and reducing fatigue
Neurologist Dr. David Perlmutter guests
Wouldn’t you like to know how to cut your risk of Alzheimer’s in half, how diabetes affects your risk for Alzheimer’s, and how we are completely wrong in our thoughts about cholesterol? Dr. David Perlmutter, author of The Grain Brain Whole Life Plan, tells us all that and more in this fascinating chat. It turns out that some of the advice that we have been getting about healthy eating is exactly the opposite of what our body and brain really want in order to be healthy.
We learn why understanding inflammation is so important, what our gut has to do with our brain, and what we can do to prevent Alzheimer’s, reduce fatigue, and build new brains cells. Plus – what the sugar industry did in the 60’s that set us on the wrong track, and why fat is so darn important to our body and brain.
