GeniusFood

I want to share with you a very important webinar about an exciting new book called Genius Foods- Become Smarter, Happier, and More Productive While Protecting Your Brain for Life, which I highly recommend.

Friday, March 23rd at 1:00 PM EDT, my good friend and science journalist Max Lugavere will join me for a FREE LIVE WEBINAR about Genius Foods which is out everywhere today!

Register now!

After his mother was diagnosed with a rare form of dementia, Max put his career on hold to learn everything he could about brain health. Desperate for answers, he dedicated himself to uncovering the most up-to-date scientific research, talking to dozens of leading scientists and clinicians around the world, and visiting the country’s best neurology departments—all in the hopes of understanding his mother’s condition.

In Genius Foods, Lugavere now presents a comprehensive guide to brain optimization. In it, he uncovers the link between our dietary and lifestyle choices and our brain function, revealing how the foods you eat directly affect your ability to focus, learn, remember, create, analyze new ideas, and maintain a balanced mood.

Weaving together pioneering research on dementia prevention, cognitive optimization, and nutritional psychiatry, Lugavere distills groundbreaking science into actionable lifestyle changes. It’s a two-week plan and lifestyle guide that will shrink your belly and grow your brain. In this webinar you’ll learn about:

  • the nutrients that can boost your memory and improve mental clarity (and where to find them);
  • the foods and tactics that can energize and rejuvenate your brain, no matter your age;
  • how to kick-start a brain-boosting fat-loss method so powerful it has been called “biochemical liposuction”;
  • a technique to improve your fitness (and brain health) in one fifth the gym time; and
  • the foods that can improve your happiness, both now and for the long term.

With Genius Foods, Lugavere offers a cutting-edge yet practical road map to eliminating brain fog and optimizing the brain’s health and performance today—and decades into the future.

Please support Max, join us this Friday and pick up this treasure trove of information for yourself and loved ones.  Click here to Order Genius Foods. My copy just arrived and I can’t wait to dive in!

BREAD HEAD: How do we prevent America’s most feared disease?

Max Lugavere

Filmmaker and media personality Max Lugavere recently crushed his $75,000 goal on kickstarter, raising over $130,000 to produce a first of it’s kind documentary that explores the impact of our diets and lifestyles on brain health. Based on the results of his fundraising efforts with 1,748 backers including myself, I’d say people want to see BREAD HEAD: How do we prevent America’s most feared disease come to fruition.

Because changes in the brain begin decades before Alzheimer’s symptoms, the absolute best way we can move the needle on this disease is through minimizing risk when it matters most. Max Lugavere is directing this project which includes interviews with David Perlmutter, MD, and many other thought leaders working to help prevent and treat this and other devastating neurodegenerative diseases.

Join me and Max Lugavere on TLP Radio and Podcast tomorrow, March 4th at 8PM EST as we discuss Alzheimers, the BREAD HEAD documentary, and how you can take control of your brain health. Register for an email reminder.

 

Alive Inside: The Story of Music and Memory

aliveinside

Perhaps you saw the viral video that was going around in the summer of 2012. It featured an elderly gentleman in a nursing home, coming alive through listening to music from his era as if it was manna from heaven. I posted about Henry’s Music back then not knowing that two years later a social worker named Dan Cohen, the man responsible for giving the gift of music to Henry would be my guest on The Listening Program® Radio.

That video was a clip from the production of Alive Inside, the 2014 Sundance Audience Award winning documentary, which brings attention to the work of nonprofit Music & Memory, which promotes the use of music to transform the lives of elders in nursing homes and at their own home regardless of cognitive or physical limitations. This captivating and touching film profiles Henry and other aging elders who are caught in the shattering grip of dementia, but who find light and hope through the beautiful sounds of personal music.

Join me and my guest Dan Cohen, the founder of Music & Memory for what is sure to be an inspiring conversation on The Listening Program Radio Monday, October 6th at 8 pm Eastern.

iPod Therapy Opens Memories for Alzheimer’s Patients

Music works, music heals; it unlocks our emotions, creativity, spirituality, and the infinite potential of the brain.  It is also a way to tap into the memories of someone suffering with Alzheimer’s Disease according to Dr. Concetta Tomaino, who has studied the therapeutic effects of music for more than 30 years.

Caregivers have observed for decades that Alzheimer’s patients can still remember and sing songs long after they’ve stopped recognizing names and faces. Many hospitals and nursing homes use music as recreation, since it brings patients pleasure. But beyond the entertainment value, there’s growing evidence that listening to music can also help stimulate seemingly lost memories and even help restore some cognitive function.

“What I believe is happening is that by engaging very basic mechanisms of emotions and listening, music is stimulating dormant areas of the brain that haven’t been accessible due to degenerative disease,” says Concetta Tomaino, executive director of the Institute for Music and Neurologic Function, a nonprofit organization founded at Beth Abraham in 1995. 1
