Alzheimer's Disease

Nikki Brown, a qualified BANT registered nutritional therapist, will be giving a talk on Alzheimer's disease.

Alzheimer’s Disease is the most frequent cause of age-related cognitive decline. 30 million people are affected by the disease globally and it is estimated that this will increase to 160 million by 2050. Alzheimer’s is a condition that has previously been seen as progressive and untreatable, but science-based evidence has now shown that this is not the case.

 In 2014, Professor Dale Bredesen, a leading scientific researcher of Alzheimer’s disease in the US, shared his conclusions that diet and lifestyle are able to reverse early stages of cognitive decline and significantly reduce the risk of getting Alzheimer’s and other cognitive symptoms. His clinical evidence to date shows dramatic benefits never seen before, without the use of drugs, and the factors involved in the pathology and progression of Alzheimer’s disease are now understood, as well as factors that can positively influence the disease process.

The talk will look at what Alzheimer’s is, what causes it and how the symptoms differ from normal aging. It will look at Professor Bredesen’s findings and how his approach to brain health reduces the risk factors, including genetic influences, nutrient deficiencies and Metabolic Syndrome, which is a key risk factor. And it will also look at what constitutes a healthy diet and lifestyle in relation to brain health.
