Nutrition and Lifestyle Approaches to Help Prevent and Reverse Cognitive Decline (1 CPEU/CEU)
Nutrition and Lifestyle Approaches to Help Prevent and Reverse Cognitive Decline (1 CPEU/CEU)


The incidence of Alzheimer's and other types of dementia is skyrocketing. Drug therapy has not lived up to its promise, nor have stand-alone approaches like exercise or brain-building.

Yet, emerging research shows nutrition and lifestyle interventions are of paramount importance in preventing and even reversing Alzheimer's and other types of cognitive decline. The trick lies in a multi-pronged approach, customized to the type of dementia, as well as specifically testing for and addressing the lab values that are abnormal. Nutrition and diet-based approaches are paramount to addressing cognitive decline, which means RD/RDNs have a pivotal role in helping clients understand and implement the right approaches for their unique risk factors and presentation.

This webinar with neurologist and Alzheimer's researcher Dale Bredesen, MD, author of the bestselling
