Alzheimer’s has reached epidemic proportions with more than 5.8 million Americans having been diagnosed with this disease. Worldwide, over 40 million individuals have been given this diagnosis – Alzheimer’s disease, a disease for which we have no meaningful treatment.
There’s a common misconception that whether or not we get Alzheimer’s disease is something that’s out of our hands. But that is absolutely a misconception. Our actions today, the choices that we make, pave the way for our brain’s destiny in terms of health, functionality, and risk for this disease.
I’ve been studying the brain virtually my entire adult life. I am absolutely convinced that, by and large, Alzheimer’s is a preventable disease. This is what our most well respected mainstream research is telling us. Because of this, I set out to interview the best experts across the United States to gather their incredible knowledge as it relates to Alzheimer’s prevention.
Each and every one of us can drastically improve our brain health and disease resistance by implementing the simple recommendations revealed in this documentary series. It’s time to embrace the notion of preventive medicine, specifically as it relates to brain health.
And this series will show you how.
Yours in health,

Featuring interviews with 20+ experts in the field including Dr. Dale Bredesen, Dr. Lisa Mosconi, Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Michael Merzenich, Dr. Sara Gottfried, and Dr. Jeffrey Bland, this documentary series will give you cutting-edge information revealing how to maintain brain health into old age and live a long, healthy, fulfilling life.
“Subjective cognitive decline (SCD), or self-perceived worsening of cognitive function in the absence of objective cognitive deficits, has attracted significant scientific attention for decades, because this phenomenon might reflect the earliest signs of an emerging neurodegenerative disease.1 “
Maybe brain symptoms continue, despite online researching. Could be a conventional doctor already checked you and said it is depression or stress.
Concerns for your brain’s health can be investigated more deeply. You have reached the right place for a thorough evaluation, through functional medicine testing, to look for factors that affect thinking and cognition. Subtle thyroid disorders, nutrient deficiencies, and occult infections can contribute to brain function decline.
Caregivers to an Alzheimer patient are at higher risk of dementia themselves.
Professionals fear “losing their edge” at work. Some might feel that their memory is worsening. Some are afraid they could lose an executive position because they are forgetting people or having trouble calculating. Or can’t come up with the right words in time. Cognitive impairment can also manifest as having a hard time leading a meeting or project.
Maybe a colleague is wondering about your job performance. Perhaps you are afraid you might not pass blood or memory tests for an insurance exam.
Your cognitive function is paramount. Don’t let it slip away without an in-depth analysis for underlying causes that could be reversed.
