Fending Off Neurodegenerative Diseases, Part 1
February 14, 2019
Board-certified neurologist, Dr. Phillipe Douyon, creator of the BrainFit™️ app, joins us to talk about ways to support brain health and fend off neurodegenerative disease. We needn’t be resigned to progressive loss of brain function with aging, because new findings about neuroplasticity reveal that the brain can remodel and rejuvenate itself, actually regenerating brain cells and neural circuits. Dr. Douyon reveals why, with the limited success of drugs for conditions like Parkinson’s and ALS, we need to invoke a comprehensive lifestyle program to address brain health. This comprises sleep, stress reduction, exercise, social connection, avoidance of toxins, and diet. Even poor dental hygiene may influence brain health. Among the supplements that are helpful are fish oil, curcumin, B vitamins and antioxidants like alpha lipoic acid. Dr. Douyon, who specializes in the treatment of epilepsy reveals the role of ketogenic diets in patients who don’t respond to conventional treatment? Are refined carbs and gluten really potentially harmful to the brain? What role for the microbiome in brain health? Which drugs are memory robbers? Can statins have harmful effects on the brain?

Clinical Focus: Low-carb diets increase your risk of dying—Really? Part 1
August 23, 2018
A new Lancet study purports to demonstrate that popular low-carb diets are unhealthy and dangerous. But the study is rife with errors that call its conclusions into doubt. Plus, it’s contradicted by other previous, even-larger studies. We’ll take a deep-dive on the Lancet study’s methodological flaws, and learn why it’s a disservice to those tens of millions of sufferers of metabolic disorders worldwide, curable through carefully administered low-carb diets. Why, then, is an uncritical press so willing to swallow these conclusions hook-line-and-sinker? Click HERE for part 2.
