Open Sky Fitness Podcast

Rob & Devon Dionne have been in the health and fitness world for over a decade. Devon is a Holistic Nutrition Counselor and GYROTONIC® Instructor. Rob is a certified personal trainer with NASM, holding advanced certification, CES, PES, MMA, and Weight Loss Specialist. He's also a level 1 Crossfit Instructor. This husband and wife team redefine what it means to be healthy in this fast paced, hectic world we live in. The Open Sky Fitness Podcast is perfect for men and women who are trying to get back in shape after neglecting their health after years of focusing on their jobs or building a family. Remember what it was like when you were 20 years old? Diet and exercise wasn't a thing. If you worked out for a few days or stopped eating cheese burgers for a week, you'd drop ten pounds. Too bad we can't live in that reality forever. Welcome to life after 30. Rob & Devon would like to help you find the right path for this moment in your life. We don't believe in going on a diet. We don't believe there's only one way to achieving the body you want. We do believe in creating a lifestyle that allows you to have the best of both worlds...eating delicious food and being healthy at the same time. It is possible. Just listen to our show and you'll see! If you have questions you'd like us to answer on our show or via email, feel free to contact Rob. If you'd just like to write us a letter and give us your feedback, we'd love that too. Send everything to Rob@OpenSkyFitness.com Thanks for listening! Enjoy the show.

Can you imagine what the women in this world could do if they weren't worried about the number on the scale? - Jennipher Walters on what insight her intuitive dietitian had given her.

This week, Rob had an amazing discussion with Podcast Hosts, Personal Coaches at Fit Bottomed Girls, and Creators of the Love Your Body. Love Your Life online course, Jennipher Walters and Kristen Seymour. Both women shared their own wellness journeys, how they went from student to personal trainer, and how Fit Bottomed Girls has evolved since 2008.

Special BONUS for Open Sky Fitness Podcast Listeners: Get $100 off of the Love Your Body. Love Your Life online course when you enter the code, New FBG.

Both Jenn and Kristen are on a mission to share their You Can't Hate Yourself Healthy approach to both men and women to inspire them to give up their diets and focus on enjoying their lives rather than allowing the number on the scale to determine their happiness.

Through Fit Bottomed Girls, Jenn and Kristen are leading voices in combating the negative messages that the media spreads about what it means to be healthy. It is their mission to help people boost their body confidence and self-image through courses, couching, books, podcast interviews, and more.

On This Episode:

As you listen, Rob, Jenn, and Kristen discuss:

  • How you can create healthy habits by first focusing on what you love such as your favorite exercise and foods before you challenge yourself.
  • Why our poor body image and self-confidence is actually a wake-up call that there is something deeper that needs our attention.
  • Why you can't have the mindset that you must restrict your nutrition while working out hard or training for endurance events.
  • Why some people with tendencies such as Rebels or Upholders might have difficulty with focusing on their self-love and how they can overcome it with a unique approach that works for them.
  • How important it is to do a self-audit of where you are now and where you want to be in the future.

 

"It's okay to eat the foods you want or need to eat. We tend to moralize food but you're not good for eating a salad nor bad for eating ice cream." - Kristen Seymour

About Fit Bottomed Girls

It began as a single blog with a tongue-in-cheek play on a Queen song. Today, the Fit Bottomed World, run by Jennipher Walters and Kristen Seymour (who are certified fitness professionals but also just everyday regular women), is an online phenomenon reaching millions of women (and men!) each month. And, of course, the focus is always on the idea that fit bottoms come in all shapes and sizes — and that you’re more than the number on the scale.

(And they know because they’ve been there. Read Jenn’s personal story here, and Kristen’s here.)

True pioneers of the body-positive movement, Jennipher Walters and Erin Whitehead began Fit Bottomed Girls in 2008 as friends looking for a fun, fresh and no-diet approach to being healthy. Months after the site launched, it took off — readers were clearly hungry for something other than “how to lose 10 pounds in 10 minutes and get the perfect man.” Infusing their own experiences (both failures and successes) they created a community of “FBGs” — welcoming everyone in, including writer Kristen Seymour, who would later become a business partner.

From there, the Fit Bottomed Girls expanded into new verticals and products to serve its growing readership, including Fit Bottomed MamasFit Bottomed Eatsa bookFit Bottomed Zena podcast and the online course Love Your Body. Love Your Life.

In 2017, Erin left the company to pursue other interests and focus on her family, while the Fit Bottomed World expanded into more speaking engagements, retreats, and brand consulting. Jenn and Kristen also continue to work with major brands such as Brooks Running, Marshall’s and Pure Protein on campaigns and other influencer projects that are fully aligned with the Fit Bottomed Girls’ mission. In fact, Jenn and Kristen were named as one of The 100 Most Influential People in Health and Fitness by Greatist in 2016 and 2017, and were listed as one of the best healthy living bloggers of 2018 by Healthline.

And the one thing that will never, ever change is the company’s mission to continue to let women (and men!) know that you simply can’t hate yourself healthy.

There is no one-way, one-fits-all, magic solution that works for everyone to reach goals or get things done. A lot of people spend time beating themselves up when something doesn't work instead of saying, 'Hey! I've learned something about myself. This isn't the way it works for me; let's move on to something that works better.' They shouldn't feel like they don't have any willpower or they're not a grown up. There's nothing wrong with you; there are other ways of doing things and let's focus on that. - Gretchen Rubin

This week, we are so excited to share Rob's interview with Bestselling Author of numerous books including The Four Tendencies and Co-Host of The Happier Podcast, Gretchen Rubin. Rob and Gretchen dove deep into how she switched from a career in law to become a writer and all about the unique Four Tendencies people have according to their inner and outer expectations: Upholders, Questioners, Obligers, and Rebels.

More specifically, you'll learn about:

  • Why we try to change our tendencies and who we are even though there's absolutely no need to do that.
  • The fact that 40% of the population are Obligers.
  • How to make a change in your life without changing your inner nature no matter what tendency you have.
  • Why Rebels have a "could do" list instead of a to-do or goals list.
  • What defines an Upholder and why they're so driven to succeed with just a little bit of accountability.
  • How Gretchen discovered The Four Tendencies by observing people including herself.
  • What an Obliger Rebellion is and why it can be a beneficial breakthrough for an Obliger.
  • How the Four Tendencies can overlap for some people.

 

"What you do every day matters more than what you do once in a while." - Gretchen Rubin

Gretchen Ruben's Four Tendencies

 

The Four Tendencies by Gretchen Rubin

The Four Tendencies by Gretchen RubinIn this groundbreaking analysis of personality type, bestselling author of Better Than Before and The Happiness Project Gretchen Rubin reveals the one simple question that will transform what you do at home, at work, and in life. 

During her multibook investigation into understanding human nature, Gretchen Rubin realized that by asking the seemingly dry question "How do I respond to expectations?" we gain explosive self-knowledge. She discovered that based on their answer, people fit into Four Tendencies: Upholders, Questioners, Obligers, and Rebels. Our Tendency shapes every aspect of our behavior, so using this framework allows us to make better decisions, meet deadlines, suffer less stress, and engage more effectively.

More than 600,000 people have taken her online quiz, and managers, doctors, teachers, spouses, and parents already use the framework to help people make significant, lasting change.

The Four Tendencies hold practical answers if you've ever thought...
·         People can rely on me, but I can't rely on myself.

Jan 3, 2019

We can control our health's destiny; it's not luck and the right foods enable us not just to prevent but reverse diseases unless they're in the super advanced stages. This is a positive message that also tastes delicious and can be made into a diet style that people prefer to eat. - Dr. Joel Fuhrman

Do the 7 Day Paleo Reset

 

This week, we have six-time New York Times best-selling author and nutritional researcher who specializes in preventing and reversing disease through nutritional and natural methods, Dr. Joel Fuhrman on the show to talk about the Nutritarian Diet, what GBOMBS foods are and how to prepare them, plus his stance on popular oils such as coconut and olive oil and whether or not they're actually as healthy for us as we believe to be true.

It was a great interview with him and I learned so much about which foods are best eaten raw or cooked, how to transform your taste buds to love tasty, nutritious meals, and all about his resources and events including retreats and his latest books, Fast Food Genocide and Eat to Live Quick & Easy Cookbook.

 

As you listen, you will also find out all about:

  • What a Nutritarian is and what the foundations of it are.
  • Why it will take you a couple of months to adjust to a new way of eating not only for your taste buds but for an emotional transition to happen as well.
  • Why you should avoid alternative sugars like Splenda, stevia, and even diet sodas because it just perpetuates your craving for sweets.
  • How long it typically takes people to teach their taste buds to like new, healthy recipes and foods.
  • Probiotics and digestive enzymes: what happens when we consume them on a daily basis if you follow an unhealthy diet vs. healthy diet.
  • Why your depression could be caused by your poor nutrition leading you to be hormonally unbalanced.

Every day you're just stacking another penny. If you're not doing something every single day to contribute to that pile, then the pile is going down.- Chris DiVecchio on the importance of being consistent with a healthy lifestyle.

 

Author of The 5x2 Method, Founder & Trainer of Premier Mind & Body, Chris DiVecchio joined us for a very special podcast episode. In fact, I don't think I've ever had a guest quite like him. You see, Chris helped a client, Walter Fisher, win $1 million in a bet to lower his body fat composition. It was quite the challenge, but Chris helped Walter make it happen!

Not only will you hear all about that story from Chris, but we also covered the following topics including answer a question from the Open Sky Fitness Podcast Group on Facebook:

  • How do you brace when powerlifting? What part does breath play in weightlifting?
  • What is the difference between glute activation and core bracing?
  • How decreasing body fat composition is different than just losing weight.
  • Why the scale is not the only way to measure your body's health.
  • How creating a false sense of high stakes can actually help you stay motivated with your goals.
  • About Chris' book, The 5x2 Method, and how it'll help you create greater self-awareness and be present each day in your wellness journey.
  • Examples of how to get in touch with your 5 senses every day for greater self-awareness and happiness.
  • How to begin living for the future.
  • How great things can happen when you begin focusing on yourself and being more open to new opportunities.

 

The 5x2 Method:

Revealing the Power of Your Senses

Get your own copy of The 5x2 Method: Revealing the Power of Your Senses by Chris DiVecchio

The 5x2 Method: Revealing the Power of Your Senses by Chris DiVecchioDid you know you use at least one of your five senses every moment of the day, even when you are asleep? Each sense has its own special power, but it is when they are used in combination that we create those unforgettable experiences.

We all have a set of daily habits that tend to dull our senses and encourage us to lead a pretty basic life of existence. We often find ourselves in the vicious cycle of wake up, repeat and go to sleep. I developed the 5x2 method to help wake those senses back up and create a whole new way of thinking, acting, being, and doing so you can start living the life of happiness you deserve!

 

As we know, the five senses are controlled by five organs:

  • Touch
  • Sound
  • Taste
  • Sight
  • Smell

 

About Chris DiVecchio

Chris DiVecchioChris DiVecchio, Founder & Trainer of Premier Mind & Body, brings a wealth of self-development transformation mixed with a very practical technique to his fitness training. Coming from a bodybuilding background and a D1 collegiate hockey career, Chris realized that he wanted to teach his simple techniques and strategies to help others achieve both physical and mental acuity.

As a fitness trainer and lifestyle specialist, Chris has a knack for inspiring accountability and achieving results quickly. With each client, Chris develops a unique and effective nutrition and personal training strategy. His vast knowledge of great recipes and food combinations allow him to create a diet that not only tastes great but will also be easy to maintain. Chris has developed innovative fitness concepts and practices for all types of clients who are all working through very different life experiences, and he is excited to talk with you about your goals.

Are you truly creating the environment that will allow you to become the best version of yourself? A lot of us feel so overwhelmed thinking we have to do so much to live a healthier lifestyle when really it's not that difficult. 

Find out how to get more out of life by doing less in this #TBT episode repeat from my interview with Adam Schaeuble that we released the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. We know the holidays are super busy for everyone so we wanted to make sure you had the chance to have this episode in your download feed and listen to it because Adam and I both thought that interview was so awesome.

People want to lose weight but they also want happiness and joy in their lives. That just doesn't come from the gym and eating healthy. Eating better and exercising can add to it but there's a whole entire lifestyle that you need to really facilitate and nurture. - Rob Dionne

 

Hey guys! I recently had an awesome interview as a guest on Adam Schaeuble's new podcast, Casting The Pod. Adam's name might sound familiar to you and he was actually a past Open Sky Fitness Guest in episode 189 - Creating Your Own Lifestyle Rehabilitation Statement And Plan

 

 

Adam also hosts The Million Pound Mission Podcast. His new podcast, Casting The Pod shares the stories of podcasters and their experiences building, promoting, and growing a podcast show. It is also a 100% real and authentic representation of his own podcasting journey. All of his growth strategies (good and bad) will be revealed and all of the download and monetization numbers will be shared. His goal is to deliver a weekly dose of POD-tastic info that will help podcasters get their message out there!

I had such an awesome time sharing my podcasting story with Adam that I wanted to share it on Open Sky Fitness with all of you as well. Not only did we talk about the origin, current status, and future of Open Sky Fitness but we also dove into what's going on in my personal life as a new father. Hence, this episode will also be about making lifestyle changes and how we can make that happen.

 

As you tune in, we'll talk about:

  • Rob's advice for preparing for an interview and how to make the show light and entertaining.
  • How to rebound from a tough interview and make any podcast episode awesome.
  • Why being comfortable talking to people is so key to becoming a podcaster and it's okay if that's not you because you can focus on other things like writing, Instagram, YouTube etc.
  • Why you're not just interviewing people but you're also building relationships with people.
  • How Rob's life has changed since the birth of his daughter, Charlie Skye.
  • The benefits of meeting with a therapist and what he learned from his sessions.
  • The moment Rob realized he had to take a step back in order to give himself and his family more attention and care.
  • How Rob strives to practice what he preaches and really wants to work with people from a genuine place.
  • How to build an environment in which you can thrive.

Your body will never go where your mind hasn't been. If your mind has been racked with all these negative thoughts that you're not athletic, coordinated, or this isn't for you, then you're going to go that way. If you approach fitness with slow, baby steps and be open-minded, then your results won't only mean that your body has changed but your mind has shifted too. - Maarten Van Nus

This week on Open Sky Fitness, we had the Founder of BoomerBody, Creator of the Muscle Unit Stimulation Technique - M.U.S.T.,  and Author of Help: I'm Being Held Prisoner by My Couch, Maarten Van Nus, share with us how he is helping people and especially baby boomers live a life with less pain, feel younger, and navigate the misunderstood world of nutrition and exercise.

Maarten aslo shares his expertise as a regular on Radio Pulse FM and has been featured in Men's Essential magazine.

As you tune in, you'll learn all about:

  • How we can leave the mindset trap that we can never succeed at getting healthy
  • How he helps people who are in their 40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond as a personal coach and mentor.
  • How he was able to relate to and help a client both physically and mentally lose weight from a starting point of over 400 pounds.
  • What it is that makes BoomerBody so helpful for people who are new to fitness and are Boomer Babies.
  • What his fitness philosophy, Muscle Unit Stimulation Technique - M.U.S.T. is all about and where you can learn more about it.

 

"Your body was always meant to move and be healthy. It was never made to sit around and eat garbage foods." - Maarten Van Nus

 

Help: I'm Being Held Prisoner By My Couch

Help: I'm Being Held Prisoner By My Couch by Maarten Van NusFINALLY! A health and fitness book that isn't full of exercises and eating plans AND is for BOOMERS!

As part of the Baby Boomer generation, we all know that proper exercise and nutrition are good for us, right?

So why don't we all do it?

We all have our reasons…what are yours?

•I’m too busy...
•I'm too old to start now...
•I don't have the energy...
•I'm injured...
•I don't care...
•It doesn't matter how much I exercise, I'll still be unfit...
•I've never been an athlete...
•I'm intimidated by gyms and the people there...

In Help: I’m Being Held Prisoner By My Couch! fitness expert Maarten Van Nus examines the mind-body connections that keep Boomers from exercising and then he helps you recognize and examine your own connections, as well.

He explains how to retrain your mind and body to overcome social expectations, injury, inertia, poor self-image, childhood, and other thought patterns to become free of the chains that currently bind you from living a healthy life.

This book is NOT full of exercise routines and stringent diets. It focuses on understanding the reasons we don't want to exercise -- which are determined in our mind, either consciously or unconsciously -- and then helps us discover ways to change our minds to change our activity and eating patterns.

Baby Boomers are the first generation in history that has the longevity, time, and money to live for years after their retirement or to keep working well past the traditional 65 years. Boomers want to remain active and fit enough to enjoy all the things the world has to offer. This book encompasses the mindset that Maarten has been using in his clients’ training programs as well as his own. His philosophies and techniques are supported by scientific research and include some of the newest and most successful ideas about living a healthy, long life without spending all your time thinking about your fitness.

About Maarten Van Nus

Maarten Van NusMaarten Van Nus, the founder and leader of BoomerBody.ca, has been training and studying the human body since 1975.

He’s seen fitness trends come and go and he’s guided hundreds of people to train their bodies and minds past their self-made limitations to achieve their own personal fitness and health goals.

Maarten lives what he teaches and, thus, understands what we, as clients, must overcome to create the bodies and health we desire.

What Maarten has developed and proven over time is a unique technique of training that incorporates the power of our mind over our body.

People want to lose weight but they also want happiness and joy in their lives. That just doesn't come from the gym and eating healthy. Eating better and exercising can add to it but there's a whole entire lifestyle that you need to really facilitate and nurture. - Rob Dionne

 

Hey guys! I recently had an awesome interview as a guest on Adam Schaeuble's new podcast, Casting The Pod. Adam's name might sound familiar to you and he was actually a past Open Sky Fitness Guest in episode 189 - Creating Your Own Lifestyle Rehabilitation Statement And Plan

Adam also hosts The Million Pound Mission Podcast. His new podcast, Casting The Pod shares the stories of podcasters and their experiences building, promoting, and growing a podcast show. It is also a 100% real and authentic representation of his own podcasting journey. All of his growth strategies (good and bad) will be revealed and all of the download and monetization numbers will be shared. His goal is to deliver a weekly dose of POD-tastic info that will help podcasters get their message out there!

I had such an awesome time sharing my podcasting story with Adam that I wanted to share it on Open Sky Fitness with all of you as well. Not only did we talk about the origin, current status, and future of Open Sky Fitness but we also dove into what's going on in my personal life as a new father. Hence, this episode will also be about making lifestyle changes and how we can make that happen.

 

As you tune in, we'll talk about:

  • Rob's advice for preparing for an interview and how to make the show light and entertaining.
  • How to rebound from a tough interview and make any podcast episode awesome.
  • Why being comfortable talking to people is so key to becoming a podcaster and it's okay if that's not you because you can focus on other things like writing, Instagram, YouTube etc.
  • Why you're not just interviewing people but you're also building relationships with people.
  • How Rob's life has changed since the birth of his daughter, Charlie Skye.
  • The benefits of meeting with a therapist and what he learned from his sessions.
  • The moment Rob realized he had to take a step back in order to give himself and his family more attention and care.
  • How Rob strives to practice what he preaches and really wants to work with people from a genuine place.

HOW WHEAT, CARBS, AND SUGAR CAN NEGATIVELY AFFECT THE BRAIN

On this week’s #TBT episode of the Open Sky Fitness Podcast, we’re very excited to share this interview with Dr. David Perlmutter! Dr. Perlmutter is a Board-Certified Neurologist and four-time New York Times bestselling author including Grain Brain and The Grain Brain Whole Life Plan.

Click here to see the original show notes

Please leave us a review at http://openskyfitness.com/review

Check out the 7 Day Paleo Reset

With his career, Dr. Perlmutter has created a great notion in preventive medicine that relates back to the brain. With the goal to research and better understand neurological diseases, he has been able to learn what’s underlying them and create programs to target the mechanisms that cause these diseases in the first place.

WHAT YOU’LL HEAR ON TODAY’S SHOW

We had such a great discussion about how Dr. Perlmutter first discovered how important it was that we recognize the significance between the brain and gut connection, how foods like wheat, carbs, and sugar negatively impact our brain, and how we can take charge to live a healthy life.

 

THE TRUTH ABOUT COCONUT OIL

 

“Basically what you’re looking for to be healthy, is to try to avoid inflammation. Inflammation is what causes cardiovascular disease. Reduce processed foods, sugar, and carbohydrates. Eat healthy fats like grass-fed butter and grass-fed beef as well as coconut oil.” – Dr. David Perlmutter

 

Unfortunately, we didn’t get the chance to talk to Dr. Perlmutter about the latest degrading article from USA Today about coconut oil, Coconut Oil Isn’t Healthy. It’s Never Been Healthy. However, Devon and I did discuss our own view of the benefits of coconut oil plus Dr. Perlmutter’s from his article, Coconut Oil Unhealthy? Behind the Headlines, at the beginning of this episode. You definitely won’t want to miss out on that!

 

THE GRAIN BRAIN LIFESTYLE

 

 

THE ROOT OF INFLAMMATION:

THE BRAIN AND GUT CONNECTION

 

“The gut controls inflammation and inflammation is what we have to control as it relates to the brain and the brain’s destiny.” – Dr. David Perlmutter

Inflammation is caused by what happens in the gut. When various bacteria gets through a leaky gut, they can stimulate various immune cells to secrete chemicals which leads to inflammation. Because of poor gut health and inflammation, it can greatly harm the brain.

Besides food, there are many other factors that affect the gut and brain including:

  • Bacteria
  • Medications
  • Environment Toxins
  • Lack of Sleep
  • Stress
  • Little Exercise

All of these play an important role in the gut’s health and it can explain a lot of different factors such as:

  • Poor Immune System
  • Diabetes
  • Celiac Disease
  • Autism
  • ADHD
  • Adult Obesity

 

THE STANDARD AMERICAN DIET PROBLEM

Before we became farmers, we never ate wheat, carbs, or refined sugar. But then 10,000 years ago, we started to cultivate grain and it’s just been a couple of hundred of years since we began to refine sugar.

These have been part of the most dramatic events that have affected the human body in the course of mankind thus far. 

Since we’ve introduced processed foods and sugary drinks into our diets, we’ve noticeably become much sicker. There was never a noted case of dementia until the early 1900s and Inuits who lived on fat such as whale blubber never had a case of cardiovascular disease until carbohydrates were introduced to them.

Even people who have slightly elevated blood sugar can experience higher levels inflammatory chemicals in the body which could lead to a person developing a disease should they eat foods with gluten or excess amounts of sugar.

 

ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS AND OBESITY

 

 

WHY FAT IS GOOD FOR US

 

“Fat is your friend. Fat can turn off various enzymes that would otherwise make your body think that it’s starving and store fat. That’s what carbohydrates do by activating insulin. Insulin tells your body that winter is coming so it should make fat by increasing its intake of carbs and sugar. This, more than anything, is why so many Americans are obese.” – Dr. David Perlmutter

 

Fat is a powerful and efficient fuel source. How? The brain alone is 60% fat and needs fatty foods to survive. Therefore, the more healthy fats we eat like coconut oil, salmon, and avocados, the healthier the brain, gut, and rest of our bodies will be.

To live healthy and ward of diseases like dementia and Alzheimer’s, we should lower our carbohydrate intake, eat healthy fats, and exercise. When it comes down to it, chronic neurological diseases are actually quite preventable with the right actions.

Hey everyone! This week, I had a really awesome conversation with the former Fitness Director of Men's Health, Creator of The Daily BJ, Host of The Weekly BJ Podcast, and Founder of Garden of Gainz.

  • BJ's experience as a personal gym trainer and how it led to where he is today with his career with online coaching.
  • His online presence and how he likes to make his platform fun and inclusive for everyone looking to improve their health.

  • How to create your own authentic brand by being true to yourself and your brand.

Check out the 7 Day Paleo Reset

In this week's TBT, Elizabeth Benton, from Primal Potential Podcast, shares her best “weight loss strategies” on how to stay motivated, not make excuses, and how to build a routine. Since she was seven, Elizabeth has been obsessed with fat loss and yet she grew to become a 350 pound adult. As an obese woman, she worked in the health care industry developing anti-obesity programs, as well as in the dietary supplement world. Despite all the information she gathered, it didn’t help her to lose the weight. She knew she had to switch her plan of action and went back to the basics, breaking all the dieting rules. With this new lifestyle she lost over 150 pounds.

99.8% of drug trials have failed. There is no solution and nothing on the horizon for Alzheimer's disease in the pharmaceutical industry. Everything in terms of prevention with nutrition, lifestyle, and diagnosing some of the interrelated risk factors associated with dementia and Alzheimer's disease is on the rise. - Ralph Sanchez

This week, we're joined by author of The Diabetic Brain in Alzheimer's Disease, Ralph Sanchez, M.T.C.M., CNS, D.Hom.

  • The connection between Chinese medicine, functional medicine, and homeopathy.
  • The importance of understanding your family's health history and how it will impact your health.

  • Why diet and exercise are the fundamental tools to Alzheimer's prevention.

It's a vital read for anyone wishing to arm themselves with the powerful knowledge that can slash their risk for dementia and preserve their cognitive function into the golden years ahead of them.

Key Points Include:

  • How brain insulin resistance contribute to the risk of Late-onset Alzheimer's disease
  • The biological links between type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease to Late-onset Alzheimer's disease
  • The role of inflammation and oxidative stress in the development of Late-onset Alzheimer's disease
  • The importance of understanding the identifiable risk factors that are linked to dementia disorders
  • Why it is vital to proactively take steps now to save your brain
