Are you dealing with mental fog most days, crashing in the afternoons and just blaming it on lack of sleep or stress? Cognitive decline is known to begin as early as your 30s and has become the accepted norm with aging, yet many of us don’t even recognize it at its onset. In this episode, international expert in neurodegenerative diseases, Dr. Dale Bredesen, talks with Tom about the reversibility of cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease.

While Alzheimer’s disease is well known as a progressive disease impacting seniors, too many people are missing the opportunity to course correct and reverse the effects of cognitive decline leading to Alzheimer’s disease in their younger years. Dr. Bredesen explains simple ways for you to improve these conditions, avoid them altogether, and enhance your mental cognition. He discusses the importance of reducing toxins and exposes four factors that are largely responsible for the decline in optimal cognitive performance.

QUOTES: “We all have a some degree of exposure to toxicity by the air we’re breathing, by the water we’re drinking, by the food we’re eating, [...] if you’re eating mercury filled seafood, if you’re not eating grass-fed beef, if you have a high carb diet, if you’re eating simple carbs. All of these things are contributing to a lesser than optimal outcome.” [17:30]

“We are all living in a toxic world, that’s the problem [...] detoxification is not just for sick people” [21:08]

“Many of us will avoid Alzheimer’s, but we’re still going to have suboptimal cognition.” [24:24]

“You have a dynamic balance. You’re exposed to toxins all the time and you are metabolizing them, inactivating them, excreting them all the time.” [24:52]
