What You Need to Know Today to Prevent Alzheimer’s in the Future

With Dr. Dale Bredesen

What we call Alzheimer’s disease is actually a protective response to a wide variety of insults to the brain: inflammation, insulin resistance, toxins, infections, and inadequate levels of nutrients, hormones, and growth factors.

On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, I talk to Dr. Dale Bredesen about his groundbreaking protocol to prevent and reverse Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Bredesen shares inspiring stories from patients who have reversed cognitive decline and are now thriving. We discuss the contributing factors that lead to cognitive decline. We also talk about the importance of restorative sleep, targeted supplementation, exercise, and brain training for the prevention of cognitive decline.
