Can the right foods reduce or even reverse Alzheimer’s symptoms? Certified Nutrition Specialist, Amy Berger thinks so. Berger believes that Alzheimer’s is caused by a glucose shortage in the brain, causing brain neurons to degenerate, and leading to the all-too-familiar Alzheimer’s symptoms like memory loss and behavioral changes. In her book, “The Alzheimer’s Antidote: Using a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet to Fight Alzheimer’s Disease, Memory Loss, and Cognitive Decline”, Berger presents a nutritional and lifestyle intervention approach she claims is designed to combat Alzheimer’s disease. Berger’s research suggests that an effective way to treat Alzheimer’s is through diet and lifestyle changes that improve energy generation in the brain and that a food-based solution to achieve measurable improvements is as simple as a low-carb, high-fat diet.
