“We fear Alzheimer’s as we fear no other disease for two reasons. It is the only one of the nation’s 10 most common causes of death for which there has been no effective treatment. And it is not only fatal: It robs victims of their lives long before they are gone.” -Dale E. Bredeson, MD, from The End of Alzheimer’s
Join Dr. Shelly Sethi for a roundtable discussion about cognitive health and a psychiatric Functional Medicine approach to health and wellness. In this discussion Dr. Sethi will address Dr. Dale Bredeson’s groundbreaking research-based protocol to prevent and even reverse cognitive decline. We will look at a provocative and innovative way to understand the disease of Alzheimer’s. Dr. Bredeson explains that Alzheimer’s is not one condition, as it is currently treated, but several. All are driven by different mechanisms and are dramatically influenced by imbalances in 36 metabolic factors that can trigger “downsizing” in the brain. In this roundtable discussion we will explore ways to rebalance these mechanisms by adjustment of lifestyle factors, including hormone levels, stress, sleep quality, and micronutrients.
