A Comprehensive Look at Cognitive Decline, Part 1
September 21, 2021
Dr. Andrew Budson is a neurologist and memory researcher whose recent book, "Six Steps to Managing Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia: A Guide for Families" is a comprehensive look at cognitive decline. How do you determine whether you or a loved one is progressing toward dementia or merely suffering ordinary age-related memory decline? Are there tests? Why are we seeing such an uptick in Alzheimer's cases--is it merely because people are living longer, or is it something about lifestyle? What are some of the risk factors for Alzheimer's? If a family member has it, is it inevitable you'll get it? What about brain games? Exercise? Diet? Can stress accelerate memory decline? Dr. Budson shares his views on the controversial new Alzheimer's drug, Aduhelm. Do other drugs really help? What about Prevagen? What commonly-used medications can undermine memory? How to avoid caregiver burnout? Click HERE for part 2.

Treating Long Covid, Part 3
August 12, 2021
Continued from Tuesday, August 10. If you’re young and healthy and free of comorbidities, you may not be worried about being hospitalized or dying of Covid. But a new problem is emerging: Even sufferers of mild to moderate Covid continue suffering from a baffling array of debilitating symptoms for months on end. It’s been dubbed “long Covid” or “long haulers’ syndrome”. It’s estimated that 10 percent or more survivors of Covid will come down with it, and it may even hasten progression to dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. Dr. Leo Galland has done intensive research on this subject, and we’re breaking precedent by going beyond our usual two-part format to do a four-part in-depth review of his findings, consisting of a practical action plan for sufferers of long Covid. The good news is that with the proper measures, there’s now hope for sufferers of long Covid. Dr. Galland offers detailed protocols for restoring mitochondrial function, rebalancing the microbiome, overcoming sleep problems and fatigue, and alleviating brain fog: Healing Long Covid - Leo Galland, M.D. For more of Dr. Hoffman's interview with Dr. Galland, click here: Part 1 Part 2 Part 4
