Dementia and Alzheimer's disease are debilitating conditions that affect millions of people worldwide. The loss of memory and cognitive function can be devastating, not only for the individuals themselves but also for their loved ones. However, there is hope for reversing dementia.
In this episode, I had the privilege of interviewing the incredible Dr. Heather Sandison. She is a Naturopathic Doctor who has dedicated her career to supporting those suffering with dementia, and let me tell you, the insights she shared are mind-blowing! Here are some key takeaways that I believe will have a profound impact on your life:
Prioritize Your Brain Health: Dr. Heather emphasizes the importance of investing in ourselves and recognizing our own worth. Remember, you are absolutely deserving of a healthy and thriving brain!
Find Your Balance: We all know that stress can take a toll on our memory and cognitive abilities. Dr. Heather highlights the significance of maintaining a balance between engagement and overwhelm.
Take Action: The most crucial step is to take action! Dr. Heather encourages us to identify our one next right step towards improving our brain health. It could be as simple as adding a new habit to our daily routine or committing to a healthier diet. Remember, every small step counts, and together, they lead to remarkable transformations!
I cannot stress enough how valuable this episode is, and I highly recommend giving it a listen. Dr. Heather is a true inspiration, and her expertise will leave you feeling empowered and hopeful.

"I wish more than anything every day. I wish there was a pill or an IV that I could give my patients to just stop the suffering. But we don't have that yet. But what we do have are these other really exciting things that we can do where the side effects are just better health and more graceful aging generally." [00:12:29] – Dr. Heather Sandison
"My life's work is to change the narrative around Alzheimer's. There is hope. There's lots we can do. And the sooner we get started, the sooner we get these foundations in place, the sooner we get the toxins out and the nutrients balanced, the better our outcomes.” [00:42:51] – Dr. Heather Sandison
