Can we prevent Alzheimer's? It turns out our genes only account for about 3-5% of dementia cases, and we have a lot more control of our long-term cognitive health than we once thought. World-renowned Alzheimer’s researchers Dr. Dean Sherzai and Dr. Ayesha Sherzai join us on the podcast to share how food—most notably plant-based whole foods—play a huge role in preventing the onset of Alzheimer's.

Hi plant-powered family!
So many of us have witnessed loved ones and members of our community experience the devastating symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s, and sometimes it can seem like there’s no avoiding it as we age—especially if it is “in our genes”. But there is hope!
Dr. Dean Sherzai and Dr. Ayesha Sherzai (aka The Brain Doctors) are world-renowned Alzheimer’s researchers and authors who have become experts at preventing and even reversing the symptoms of dementia and cognitive decline by making lifestyle changes. We had such an interesting conversation with them all about it, and we are so excited to share this episode with you!
The brain doctors share their stories about how they became committed to the path of becoming neurologists, along with tons of research-based facts that can inform our food and lifestyle choices for the best possible long-term cognitive health.
We also discuss Alzheimer's treatments, risk factors, and many actionable food and lifestyle tips that you can start incorporating into your life today to support your brain and body’s health long-term.
This is an encouraging conversation that will leave you feeling empowered with the tools you need to start supporting your brain health today!
