Renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, blows the lid off a topic that’s been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even so-called healthy carbs like whole grains, which can increase your risk for dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and more.
This workshop explores
- What happens when the brain encounters common ingredients in your daily bread and fruit bowls
- Why your brain thrives on fat and cholesterol
- How you can spur the growth of new brain cells at any age
- How to pave the way to better brain health and function.
Offering an in-depth look at how we can take control of our “smart genes” through specific dietary choices and lifestyle habits, David demonstrates how to remedy our most feared maladies, without drugs. Leize Perlmutter guides imagery techniques designed to re-contextualize your relationship with food. Dee Harris offers strategies for empowering your nutrition as well as personalized low-carb, gluten-free, and “good fat” meal plans to help you pave the way to brain health.
