If you landed here, you might be in a situation where you feel your brain is just not as sharp as it used to be. You find yourself describing your brain state as foggy or mushy. Or you have problems recalling certain words or names and you are just plain forgetting things more often. Or maybe you have history of dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease in your family and you want to do everything you can do to prevent it from happening to you.
This program is for you if:
- You have a hard time focusing and your brain feels “foggy”
- You have problems with recall. The name of a favorite song, movie, or restaurant is right at the tip of your tongue, but it just doesn’t come out.
- You notice that you are frequently forgetting names and sometimes even faces.
- You forget what you are saying mid-sentence.
- You walk into a room and cannot remember why.
- You frequently misplace your personal items.
- Your brain feels like it has slowed down; you don’t process information like you used to.
- You find that it is more difficult to learn new things.
- You catch yourself joking about your memory often.
- You frequently feel stressed out and unable to deal with day-to-day challenges
- You have started to notice that you are often moody and just don’t feel yourself
- Friends or family members have commented on your memory or mood.
- You have family members that have had or have dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease.
- You are in your forties, fifties, or sixties and want to take a proactive approach to keep your brain sharp for life!
This program is not for you if you have advanced past the early stages of Alzheimer’s Disease or are on pharmaceutical drugs for AD.
Revitalize Your Brain Program Description
This three month program includes:
- Eight virtual one on one meetings with Beth Gillespie over a three month period.
- A comprehensive initial blood test to rule out nutrient/hormone deficiencies and inflammatory factors that have been shown to contribute to decreased brain function.
- Private resource page to guide you along during the three months.
- Two neuro-cognitive tests that you do in the comfort of your own home that objectively assess a broad spectrum of brain function performance. The first test you take in week one and the second test you take in week twelve to assess progress.
- Free access to a cutting edge brain exercise program software during the three months of the program.
I have witnessed Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) on both sides of my family. I knew very little about AD when I watched it gradually take over my grandmother. I was just starting my career in nutrition. There was hope when she took a new drug and then frustration when it did not work. By the time I learned about potential nutrients and therapies that could help her, it was too late in the progression of the disease.
When it was first “officially” diagnosed that my uncle had AD, it was no longer in the early stages. It was a long decline that also ended up with a Parkinson’s diagnosis; all indicative of neurodegeneration.
I have always been fascinated with the brain. Such a powerful and complicated organ, and yet so fragile at the same time. With everything we know, the way it works still remains a mystery. In December 2016, I attended Dr. Dale Bredesen’s practitioner training on how to potentially reverse mild cognitive impairment and early stage Alzheimer’s disease. I was so encouraged to learn that my education and learning up until that point were right in line with Dr. Bredesen’s work.
Dr. Bredesen taught us that Mild Cognitive Impairment and AD have multiple underlying causes, and it is our responsibility to figure out what the underlying causes are in each person. This may range from overt nutrient deficiencies to imbalanced hormones to excessive inflammation. Even oral and gut infections can impair brain health. Taking the time to figure out the underlying causes of decreased brain function is so worth the reward of having a healthy brain and preserving your memories!
The key is to catch it early. Once AD has progressed past the early stages, it is very difficult to reverse. It is also harder to reverse once pharmaceutical drugs have been started. Start a preventative approach in your forties, even earlier if you have AD in your family. And if you are in your fifties, sixties, or seventies, it is never too late to start a brain health program and improve your brain function!
