The Role of Nutrition in Preventing Alzheimer's Disease

In 1985 the Medical Research Council appointed him Honorary Director of the newly established Anatomical Neuropharmacology Unit in Oxford, which has pioneered ways of studying neural networks in the brain. In 1988 he established the Oxford Project to Investigate Memory and Ageing (OPTIMA) – a clinicopathological longitudinal study. Alzheimer’s disease remains his main research interest today and he was the first Chairman of the Scientific Advisory Board of the Alzheimer’s Research Trust, UK.

In this seminar, Professor David Smith will discuss the important role that nutrition can play in preventing and arresting Alzheimer's disease. He will discuss his pioneering research in the area of B vitamins and Omega 3 fatty acids and their potential to slow down the progression of cognitive decline, as well as practical takeways for viewers to integrate into their everyday lives to help enhance brain health.

1 in 3 of us is addicted to something - whether it is to caffeine or alcohol, or whether it is to illegal drugs such as cocaine or even over-the-counter medication such as anti-depressants. Prescriptions for powerful opioid painkillers have doubled from 12m to 24m in the past decade and almost one in 10 British people aged 18 or older is addicted to common stimulant medications, such as Ritalin and types of amphetamines. This seminar brings back Patrick Holford, our founder and leading UK nutritional therapist to talk through specific, fast and highly effective ways to end addiction using nutrition. Using updated material from his previous book 'How to quit without feeling sh*t', Patrick will bring to life what happens in the brain in addiction and how nutritional approaches and lifestyle changes can enable effective long term recovery and bring the brain back into health
