Many people’s greatest fear is not death, but losing their mind Tragically, many Australians and New Zealanders will experience just this, personally or through a close relative or partner. The incidence of dementia is increasing rapidly due to a combination of longer life, lifelong stress, oxidative exposure and nutrient insufficiencies. Do you know the key risk factors for dementia, and which of your patients need intervention now? We will review the impact of chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes and autoimmunity on brain function. The best solution is prevention, and this seminar will provide you with the tools you need to manage patients at risk of or suffering with dementia and memory impairment.
