It’s now the sixth-leading cause of death for ALL adults in the United States, and over 90 million Americans are genetically predisposed to get it.
Yes, I’m talking about Alzheimer’s Disease.
And unfortunately, most so-called experts will tell you there’s nothing you can do about it.
But I’ve got news: my guest says that line of thinking is complete BOGUS.
In fact, he believes that not only can this dreaded disease be prevented, but it can be REVERSED.
I’m joined again by Dr. Dale Bredesen, New York Times bestselling author, and professor of Molecular & Medical Pharmacology at UCLA. Dr. Bredesen has a new book out called, The First Survivors of Alzheimer’s: How Patients Recovered Life and Hope in Their Own Words.
Dr. Bredesen gives an exclusive look into his book, including what most people get WRONG about the evaluation, prevention, and treatment of Alzhiemers disease. We also share how YOU can support a healthy brain and mental clarity– no matter your age.
That’s right, Dr. Bredesen says there is hope for everyone out there – and your journey starts today.
