Defend Against Dementia
Recent research projects on Alzheimer’s Disease, including the work of Professor Bredesen in the States and the “FINGER” study from Finland, indicate that diet and lifestyle changes can help prevent and even reverse the early stages of the disease.
I hold regular FREE talks for anyone who is interested in Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia, cognitive health and diet and lifestyle advise. See my blog page for details of the next talk or contact me directly for information or to book a place.
In the talk I cover the stages of Alzheimer’s disease and by the end you will have an understanding of what constitutes a healthy diet and lifestyle in relation to brain health.
Action Against Alzheimers Programme
This programme is aimed at those who are still well and who want to reduce their risk of developing Alzheimer’s Disease. It is a self-help diet and lifestyle 8 week programme to optimise cognitive health.
Alzheimer’s Disease starts 10, 20 or even 30 years before diagnosis. So making changes early and adopting a healthy diet and lifestyle is important.
