Vegetarian Supper Club to view Alzheimer's video
The Vegetarian Supper Club will feature Dr. Dale Bredesen's video presentation "The Silver Buckshot" when it meets at 6:30 p.m. Monday at the Hot Springs Adventist School, 401 Weston Road.
"Alzheimer's is preventable, and should become a rare disease," according to Bredesen, a neuroscientist-neurologist, who has "discovered a safe and effective approach to the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer's disease," the club said in a news release.
Dr. Jeffrey Bland, the founder of the Institute for Functional Medicine, the Cleveland Clinic, said Bredesen's approach "will revolutionize the way we think about the disease," the release said.
"In Dr. Bredesen's book, 'The end of Alzheimer's,' he reveals that Alzheimer's is not one condition, as it is currently treated, but several. The conditions are driven by different mechanisms and typically manifest in different ways and at different ages. But all are dramatically influenced by imbalances in 36 metabolic factors that can trigger 'downsizing' in the brain. He explains his research-based protocol, which addresses ways to rebalance these mechanisms by adjusting lifestyle factors, including micronutrients, hormone levels, stress, and sleep quality. He explores the critical role of diet in cognitive decline, as well as the importance of autophagy, which involves a strict overnight fast," the release said.
A potluck supper is served before each meeting, followed by a presentation on health and healing. Attendees are welcome to bring a vegetarian dish of their choice with the recipe. There is no admission charge, and everyone is welcome.
