Alzheimer's disease is frightening. Other than generally affecting older people, there seems to be little rhyme or reason to it. It is an "equal opportunity illness," striking people of all ethnicities, nationalities, genders, and body sizes.  It is especially fearsome because there are currently no effective treatments and no blockbuster drugs to slow, stop, or reverse the condition. There are many unanswered questions about how and why memory loss and cognitive impairment occur, but that doesn't mean we are completely without actionable information right now.

Join us as nutritionist Amy Berger, author of the book, The Alzheimer's Antidote, discusses exciting new developments in dementia research that describe Alzheimer's disease as "type 3 diabetes" or "diabetes of the brain." Amy will describe what's going wrong in the Alzheimer's brain and why, and then discuss a nutritional therapy and targeted supplements to support brain health and cognitive function.
