#26 How to Protect Yourself Against Alzheimer’s Disease and Cognitive Decline with Amy Berger

January 22, 2018

"Now where did I put my keys? ....
Do I need to be somewhere?
........Ummm..........
Have we met before? ....."

Ever been in those kinds of situations?

You've probably experienced these moments of short-term memory loss and brain fog.
It's as if someone hijacked your intelligence and replaced it with the mind of a fruit fly - just a blank stare

 

No matter the age, everyone is susceptible to cognitive decline and neurodegenerative diseases

 

It's thought that forgetfulness and slow thinking is a natural side-effect of aging. However, it's not pre-determined or guaranteed.

 

New research is showing that neurodegeneration is an issue of the brain not getting enough energy.
Alzheimer's is now being referred to as type-3 diabetes, which makes it a metabolic disease.

You can protect yourself against Alzheimer's, Parkinson's or any other similar condition

 

That's the topic of today's Body Mind Empowerment Podcast.

She's a researcher and the author of the book The Alzheimer's Antidote.

  • What causes Alzheimer's and cognitive decline
  • Does the brain need glucose for fuel?
  • The scary consequences of losing your cognition
  • Which genes predispose you to have Alzheimer's
  • How to protect yourself against Alzheimer's and cognitive decline

Based on research, maintaining stable blood sugar and insulin is critical for brain health. That's why I'm eating a low carb ketogenic diet and incorporate some intermittent fasting into my day. If you want to know how to combine keto with fasting then check out my Keto // IF program.
