  • From the Desk of Dr. Perlmutter

    Thanks to hosting The Empowering Neurologist, I’m always receiving copies of some of the latest and greatest works of scientific study from colleagues across the globe. As I was doing a bit of spring cleaning recently, I came across countless titles that have inspired and shaped my perspective on health over the past several years. Before I put these away, and in honor of today, National Doctors Day, I wanted to share some of these titles with you. Below, I’ll link to the title on Amazon, as well as the author’s Empowering Neurologist interview. I also encourage you to go follow their work in addition to being a member of this community. Together, we can bring a sea change to the world of optimal living! Source

  • The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD and Dr. Anna Cabeca

    Dr. Anna Cabeca has written a new book, The Hormone Fix, that focuses on the important role of diet and other lifestyle issues in terms of gaining hormone balance. She especially focuses on menopause and leveraging the fundamental relationship between a ketogenic diet and hormone function in what she calls the “keto-green way.” This is a unique feature of her new book that takes into account the importance of alkalinity for feeling well while engaged in a ketogenic program. Dr. Cabeca is a very special individual whom I deeply admire and respect. Please enjoy this interview, and be sure to let me know your thoughts below. If you want to learn more about Dr. Cabeca’s book, certainly check it out at the link above, but you can also explore Dr. Cabeca’s Breeze Through Menopause 10-Day Masterclass, which is a completely free way to learn about a keto-green lifestyle, and how it can heal the Read More

  • Ketosis Increases Antioxidant Activity

    The science surrounding the ketogenic diet expands day by day. In today’s video I will explore some of the science that shows a relationship between the ketogenic diet and increased brain glutathione levels, and explain why that matters for brain health. The full study can be found here. Want to learn more about the ketogenic diet? Then consider checking out my e-guide to this incredibly powerful dietary and lifestyle choice. Source

  • The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD, and Dr. Sara Gottfried

    Brain Body Diet is the newest book written by New York Times best-selling author, Dr. Sara Gottfried.

It’s a deep dive into a vast array of lifestyle opportunities that can absolutely rewrite a woman’s health destiny. Brain Body Diet is an incredibly empowering work and I can assure you that you will find this interview to be very meaningful. I am honored that I have been given the opportunity to write the foreword for Dr. Gottfried‘s new book as well as permission to reprint it below. Take a read, and then enjoy today’s discussion. One of the most exciting developments in the area of health and wellness over the past decade has been the recognition that gaining an understanding of a person’s uniqueness opens the door Read More

  • The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD, and Dr. James DiNicolantonio

    Today we are going to review a new book, The Longevity Solution, written by Dr. James DiNicolantonio and Dr. Jason Fung. Much about this book can be learned from its subtitle: “Rediscovering Centuries Old Secrets to a Healthy, Long Life.” The point being that much of what this book describes was known by our ancestors, and it’s our job to unlearn what we’ve come to know about aging, and relearn this crucial ancient wisdom. This fascinating book does a deep dive into the mechanisms that are involved in aging and then takes up some very interesting topics that are currently a part of our day-to-day discussions relating to aging, including the notion of fasting, the importance of understanding health implications of foods like like tea, red wine, and coffee, the controversial ideas of consuming dietary salt, why magnesium matters, what makes for a healthy versus unhealthy fat, and even explores Blue Zones, Read More

  • Vitamin D and Alzheimer’s Disease: Could Deficiency Increase Your Risk?

    You know, we’ve explored, several times now, the relationship between vitamin D levels and risks for severe health complications, including dementia. Notably, my colleague Dr. Dale Bredesen has written and researched much on this topic, particularly with regard to the relationship between vitamin D levels and Alzheimer’s risk. In fact, Dr. Bredesen even includes vitamin D supplementation in his protocol for treating Alzheimer’s and dementia. Well, a new study in the journal Neurology explores the scientific fact behind this relationship between vitamin D, and dementia and Alzheimer’s. This longitudinal study followed 1,000+ elderly individuals who were free of dementia at the outset, to see how their vitamin D levels and brain health state changed over time. Here’s what they found. Source

  • The Glymphatic System: Enhancing Performance with Optimal Sleep

    Perhaps by now, you’ve heard of the glymphatic system. Personally, I’ve seen it be a subject both popular media and medical journals are devoting more and more attention to. But, what exactly is the glymphatic system? This may come as a bit of a surprise to learn, but it’s your brain’s other circulatory system. Yes, your brain has a second circulatory system! This newly discovered pathway is used to rid the brain of the byproducts of metabolism. Think of it as how the brain takes out the garbage. We’re also now learning it’s an important means for transporting important chemicals around the brain, like glucose and fatty acids. Certainly, the performance of the glymphatic system is something we want to do, and it’s a good thing we’re seeing more research done to determine how to do this. One finding that seems to be sticking out: improving the quality of our sleep Read More
