Alchemy of Health Webinar Series – Integrative Updates on Memory, Cognition and Alzheimer’s Disease
Have you ever heard of anyone preventing their memory decline way before it actually presents as dementia? The truth is, dementia is a very big problem that’s becoming bigger every day.
Why is it important?
In 2023, it is estimated there are more than 400,000 Australians living with dementia and more than 1.5 million people are caring for someone living with dementia.
Alzheimer’s disease, a growing epidemic, is the most common form of dementia. It is a physical brain condition resulting in impaired memory, thinking and behaviour. It disrupts the brain’s neurons, affecting how they work and communicate with each other.
Research has shown that amyloid-β is deposited in E4 carriers as early as their thirties, so addressing components prior to experiencing cognitive impairment symptoms will likely lead to better health and cognition in aging.
Dr Dale Bredesen suggests that the molecular switch that promotes Alzheimer’s disease is turned on in response to three major metabolic insults and has identified three types of Alzheimer’s disease that have unique presentations and associated risks.
A new approach is needed. The drivers of neuro-inflammation must be managed in order to prevent cognition decline
