Preventing Alzheimer’s and Other Brain Illnesses

One of the main premises of Grain Brain, and much of my work, is preventing Alzheimer’s disease. You actually have the ability to make changes in your lifestyle choices to prevent Alzheimer’s. In a recent article for The Huffington Post, I address exactly why and how to make this your reality.

While our government invests millions of dollars in finding a pharmaceutical to prevent Alzheimer’s, study after study has continued to find evidence that through slight variations in our daily diet as well as dedication to exercise, we can have a marked effect on reducing our risk for Alzheimer’s as well as actually improve brain performance. Studies have come out linking increased blood sugar with a reduction in the size of the hippocampus, the brain’s memory center. What does this mean? It means we shouldn’t be surprised to learn that predicted growth in the number of Americans i with Type 2 Diabetes is coupled with similar growth in the number of Americans expected to be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in the coming decades.

So, read this important article – I wrote it for you!

    Hey Dr. Perlmutter,
    Thank you for your wonderful work exposing the dangers of gluten and the SAD sugar saturated American Diet. Many lives will be saved because of your gracious efforts. Are you open to learning about protocols which are helping to reverse Alzheimer’s and other brain illnesses? It is not much of a step to take to go from preventing these diseases to reversing them, but it is a step, and it requires a little dietary fine tuning.
    God bless and protect you and your family.

    What I do not understand…..what diet does one follow if your gall bladder has been removed? You do not address this problem in your book nor in your KPBS session. Have Listened to you now three times…..no information.
