Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States. Care for its victims costs more than the expense of heart disease and cancer combined. This class and slide show is based on the latest scientific research from leading journals worldwide. Find out which two nutrients are crucial for lowering the buildup of amyloid plaques. You will learn how to lower your risk by increasing your intake of antioxidant fruits, vegetables, and seeds. Lowering saturated fats in the diet can result in better blood flow to the brain. See studies that show which supplements and medical plants have been shown to be effective in reducing the risk and progression of this common dementia.

Steve Blake has earned a doctorate in holistic health, specializing in nutritional biochemistry, and a doctorate in naturopathic medicine. He offers classes at the University of Hawaii. He has taught classes at Stanford University, McLean Hospital, and at Boston University Medical Center. Dr. Blake authored the 2008 McGrawHill college textbook Vitamins and Minerals Demystified. He has just authored A Nutritional Approach to Alzheimer’s Disease. He also wrote Understanding Dietary Fats and Oils, Healing Medicine, and coauthored Mosby's 2001 Nursing Drug Reference. He is the author of The Herb Doctors with worldwide information. He is the author of the Diet Doctor, software for graphing dietary nutrients.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
