Preventing and Treating Neurodegenerative Disease

Neurodegenerative Disease

Clinical Nutritionist Josh Gitalis discusses how to prevent and treat Neurodegenerative disease such as Parkinsons and Alzheimers disease with proper nutrition.  As we get older our brains deteriorate in their function.  New research show that many of these diseases are preventable and  in some cases reversible.  The key is to start early.  Two main factors which can lead to Neurodegenerative diseases:

Inflammation – Bad fats in refined and processed foods which promote inflammation in the body

Oxidative Stress – occurs when the body has a lack of antioxidants such as Vitamins C, E and Coenzyme Q10

The good news is that studies have shown that DHA, Caloric restriction and Exercise and Meditation have all been proven to prevent Neurodegenerative Disease.
