Nourish Your Neurons: Preventing Alzheimer’s with Good Nutrition

I attended this presentation live at the Wise Traditions Conference last year, and really enjoyed it. I thought Amy Berger did an excellent job of explaining Alzheimer’s disease and her recommended treatment.  I recommend this presentation for anyone who wants to understand the brain. – Lisa

Description:

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 signaling in the brain. This talk 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. 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.

Amy Berger is a U.S. Air Force veteran, certified nutrition specialist and nutritional therapy practitioner who specializes in using low-carbohydrate nutrition to help people reclaim their vitality through eating delicious foods. She loves showing people that getting and staying well doesn’t require starvation, deprivation or living at the gym. Her motto is, “real people need real food!” She blogs at www.tuitnutrition.com, where she writes about a wide range of health and nutrition-related topics, such as insulin, metabolism, weight loss, thyroid function, and more. She is the author of The Alzheimer’s Antidote: Using a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet to Fight Alzheimer’s Disease, Memory Loss, and Cognitive Decline.
