A HEALTHY GUT MAY SAVE YOUR BRAIN AND YOUR LIFE

A HEALTHY GUT MAY SAVE YOUR BRAIN AND YOUR LIFE

 

As a member of the American Academy of Anti Aging Medicine I just attended their 2016 national conference in Las Vegas. I want to bring you crucial information about how the environment of your GI tract, called the Microbiome, may determine whether you are more susceptible to the onset of Alzheimer’s and other Neurodegenerative and other diseases. A great talk about this was presented by David Perlmutter, MD a board certified Neurologist a leader in the field of Natural Medicine as it relates to the mind and how we may be able to help ourselves through non drug therapies.

In tandem with my own experience as well as incorporting Dr. Perlmutter’s presentation of the latest sci4ece , my advice to patients is the following:


1. Take broad spectrum Pre and Probiotics. It’s not just the number of organisms on the bottle, but the variety of species that counts.
2. Avoid sugar. The government’s long campaign against fat has been proven to be an enormous national mistake. Sugar is the culprit.
3. Relieve “leaky gut” inflammation by finding out about your food sensitivities, and avoiding those foods.
3. Get at least 7 hrs of sleep per night. Americans are getting less sleep than ever before, and it’s bad for your brain and your body.

It has always been my passion to prevent disease, not just treat it. I hope to help you learn how to prevent the worst types of illness for which no good treatment exists.
