In Episode 967 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we have a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition named Amy Berger as our guest today. One of the most debilitating neurodegenerative diseases of our day is Alzheimer’s disease. Within research circles, this condition is widely known as “Type 3 diabetes” because of the blood sugar and insulin connection to the disease. For a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition named Amy Berger, she has been very interested in the indelible relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and nutrition. What she discovered was how a real foods-based low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is the key to controlling high insulin levels that are leading to the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease. She’s written a compelling new e-book about this subject entitled The Alzheimer’s Antidote: A Comprehensive Nutrition And Lifestyle Strategy To Fight Alzheimer’s Disease, Memory Loss And Cognitive Decline!

“In the absence of making dramatic dietary changes, exogenous ketones are fleeting and like dipping water out of a sinking ship.” — Amy Berger

Listen in as Jimmy and Amy talk about how she followed all the typical nutrition advice and wasn’t seeing results, why the low-carb message doesn’t get more traction despite the overwhelming science supporting it, how scary it is to start eating more fat after years of fat-phobia, what got her interested in the subject of Alzheimer’s disease, how she made the connection between insulin, glucose, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s, former podcast guest Dr. Larry McCleary called Alzheimer’s Type 3 diabetes many years ago, the mechanism about how Alzheimer’s disease develops and progresses with a high-carb diet, the ApoE 4 genotype makes you more susceptible to getting Alzheimer’s disease with a poor carb-rich diet, doctors think people with Alzheimer’s need to keep the brain active and take drugs, the drugs created to remove the amyloid plaque that doesn’t fix Alzheimer’s, why younger people are getting early onset Alzheimer’s now, how we’ve been scared away from consuming the very foods that could protect the brain, the very gradual development of Alzheimer’s and dementia, the statin drugs and prescription antacids are a huge problem in neurodegenerative disease development, the story of Dr. Mary Newport treating her husband with early onset Alzheimer’s disease, why a real foods-based low-carb diet is the best way to do this, and the non-diet ways you can improve your brain health.
