Dr. Sandison is the founder of Marama, the first residential care facility from which dementia patients are treated to get BETTER, not to decline and wither away. You'll learn about the clinical trial she conducted that proves even those who have severe cognition deficits can turn it around! And if you're beginning to suffer from memory lapses or brain fog, you'll also learn the first steps you must take to ensure that you don't follow the road to dementia. A powerful and inspiring episode for sure!
Dr. Beverly Yates is an internationally acclaimed diabetes expert who helps people get control over their blood sugar. Alzheimer's disease has been called Type 3 diabetes and the cognitive symptoms of uncontrolled diabetes are very similar to dementia, and the hormonal dysregulation that comes with diabetes can have a hugely detrimental effect on our brains. In this podcast, you will learn the five lifestyle factors that comprise the Yates protocol, and how important this is for brain health.
Kim Murphy is a certified Plant-Based Health Coach who was inspired to start a whole food plant based lifestyle to improve her own health after she lost her Dad to Alzheimer’s. Kim started her business, Simply Plant Based Kitchen, because she wanted to help busy & overwhelmed people learn how to make whole food plant based eating simple, easy, and delicious so they can feel amazing and have their best health.
Did you know that a higher BMI and/or waist-to-hip ratio are risk factors for developing dementia? The risk of many diseases increases exponentially as the amount of adipose tissue in the body increases, so it's very important to safely achieve a healthy weight and ingest foods that your body can actually metabolize. You'll be amazed at all the actionable information shared by this week's guest, Julianna Hever, to help you meet your health and weight goals.
Want more strength? Want more brainpower? Want to feel more alive? Want to banish depression and/or brain fog?
Then you need to watch this episode of Brain Health Matters, because Kate Kunkel's guest, physical therapist, Erik LeHane, has devoted his life to helping active seniors STAY active and healthy.
You CAN extend your health span and improve your quality of life with the right KIND of movement.
Kathy Fester, a long-time music educator and advocate joined me to talk about the importance of music education and music engagement at ALL ages.

Like Kate, Allison Liu is an Amen Licensed Brain Trainer and Brain Health Coach. Allison helps women in midlife to improve their mood, memory and mental sharpness. She successfully overcame brain fog and overwhelm by increasing her own ‘brain reserve’, and now coaches other women to achieve the same. She and Kate discuss the BRIGHTMINDS mnemonic which helps us understand the many risk factors for developing dementia.
