A Breakthrough for Alzheimer's!
It's a devastating disease. It's called Alzheimer's. It affects more than 5.7 million Americans, and has cost more than $270 billion for research. And a recent study out of UCLA found that we can expect those cases to triple over the next 40 years!
The degenerative disease is caused by the accumulation of something called “Amyloid plaque” in the brain, which ultimately damages brain nerves and causes memory loss, but a new breakthrough blood test could help millions change their fate!
Functional medicine pioneer,joined Tonia King on a special edition of Food Talk for Health to talk about his pivotal research published in 2018 on the causes of Alzheimer’s Disease. He says they were integral in the development of a NEW blood test for the risk assessment of Alzheimer’s that will soon be available. There is no one cause of Alzheimer’s… it’s more like 30 different variables and this blood test looks at all those variables and determines some 20-30 years earlier if a person is at risk for cognitive memory impairment. The results allow Americans to make certain lifestyle changes that can delay or change their outcome altogether.
Dr. Vojdani told Tonia about foods that have a link to Alzheimer’s disease & which foods help mitigate symptoms, toxins that are hiding in the home, and brain-healthy foods & oils to incorporate in your diet. The good news; a glass of red wine at night is good for the brain!
