“Nourish Your Neurons: A Nutritional Strategy for Alzheimer’s Disease and Cognitive Decline”
Few illnesses are as frightening and feared as Alzheimer’s disease. It seems to strike indiscriminately and the best conventional medicine has to offer are medications that are largely ineffective at slowing or stopping disease progression. However, the scientific literature is replete with research referring to Alzheimer’s disease as “type 3 diabetes” or “diabetes of the brain,” owing to the fundamental role of impaired glucose metabolism and insulin signalling in the brain. This presentation will explore the concept of Alzheimer’s as a metabolic condition, with a metabolic solution — one based on providing struggling neurons with a powerful alternative fuel source: ketones. This can be accomplished by following a low-carbohydrate, nutrient-dense diet containing the traditional nourishing fats and good quality proteins and vegetables. Amy Berger will cover genetic factors related to risk for Alzheimer’s, the failure of the pharmaceutical paradigm, and will provide a blueprint for dietary and lifestyle interventions to improve the lives of those with Alzheimer’s and their loved ones and caregivers.
