Preventing Alzheimer's Disease: A Discussion with Leeza Gibbons on The Brain Warrior's Way Podcast

I believe in our ability to find ways to make the most of what we have, and when you love someone or care for someone with Alzheimer's, the caregiver often gets sick or fails at a faster rate and dies before their diagnosed loved one because the stress is so overwhelming.
On a recent episode of The Brain Warrior's Way Podcast, Dr. Daniel Amen was joined by television personality Leeza Gibbons to discuss her advocacy for brain health and how she took preventative measures to avoid Alzheimer's disease after both her mother and grandmother were diagnosed. Leeza's experience as a caregiver taught her the loneliness and stigma surrounding the disease, but she also believes in the power of fierce optimism and finding ways to make the most of what we have.
The discussion covered risk factors, including hormonal influences, loneliness, and lack of socialization. Ultimately, the episode emphasizes the importance of caring for our brain health and taking steps to prevent Alzheimer's disease. Listen to the full episode now on alcoholfree.com.
