Join me as I ask Dr David:
* How does the body and brain become inflamed?
* The condition of modern society’s microbiomes.
* What he recommends for prevention or treatment of Alzheimers.
* How do grains impact our brain health?
Dr David is also kind enough to share with us:
* The studies on how gut bacteria affect our brain activity (most of our neurotransmitters are made in the gut, not the brain!)
* The link between gluten and gut leakiness.
* What, how and when he eats.
* How to get started on the ketogenic diet.
Dr David is a mentor and good friend of mine, and a few things he said resonated with me today:
“The ketogenic diet is brand new - I mean it's only the type of diet humans have been on for two million years!”
“Dietary fat and being fat are two entirely different things.”
“I’ve been accused of saying that I'm against research to find a cure for Alzheimer's - I am not. I mean if there were a magic pill that could help people with their brain functioning you bet I’d be writing prescriptions for it - but we don't have that yet.”
