We’ve got Amy Berger here to tell us about your noggin and how to keep it working well. She’s got a masters in human nutrition, she’s a certified nutrition specialist and a nutritional therapy practitioner, and an expert on Alzheimer’s disease.
What’s great about her is she’s taken the info from the cutting edge research being done in brain chemistry, metabolic disease, dementia, alzheimer’s, cognitive decline, and a ton more and done all the dirty work to figure it out and package it up so anyone can understand it. It may get detailed at times, but just listen on. I let her do the talking so sit back and be ready to soak up some info.
I’m not going to mention the Food Lies film crowdfunding on Indiegogo this time so let’s just hear from Amy.
