Stress Shrinks The Brain. It Creates Significant Damage To The Prefrontal Cortex–by Dean and Ayesha Sherzai, M.D.

Dr. Dean and Dr. Ayesha Sherzai are dedicated to educating people on the simple steps to long-term health and wellness through their work as Directors of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Program at Loma Linda University Medical Center, with patients, as well as through online writing, videos, and books.

There is a tsunami of diseases of the brain such as Alzheimer’s, stroke and Parkinson’s disease permeating our culture. In our own communities and families, we all have known at least one person suffering from these illnesses and in many cases seen the fallout first-hand. There is no treatment for these diseases, and the emotional, financial and social burden is immense. These diseases are thieves, stealing time, money and ravaging the minds of our loved ones. The Sherzais see scientists and physicians working furiously to find a cure or these diseases, and in this frantic race against time somehow, the big picture is usually lost among the molecules and chemicals related to the diseases.

As Co-Directors of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Program at Loma Linda University Medical Center, the Sherzais, through research and their extensive collective medical backgrounds, work to demystify the steps to achieving long-term brain health and the prevention of devastating diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Dean Sherzai, MD, PhD, is co-director of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Program at Loma Linda University. Dean trained in Neurology at Georgetown University School of Medicine, and completed fellowships in neurodegenerative diseases and dementia at the National Institutes of Health and UC San Diego. He also holds a PhD in Healthcare Leadership with a focus on community health from Andrews University.

Ayesha Sherzai, MD is a neurologist and co-director of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Program at Loma Linda University, where she leads the Lifestyle Program for the Prevention of Neurological Diseases. She completed a dual training in Preventative Medicine and Neurology at Loma Linda University, and a fellowship in Vascular Neurology and Epidemiology at Columbia University. She is also a trained plant-based culinary artist.

Tired of New Year’s diets that you can’t stick with?

Before we switched to a Whole Food Plant Based (WFPB) lifestyle, like most people, we would steadily eat more and more decadent food throughout the month of December, culminating with the culinary bacchanalia of Christmas.  I often felt so disgusting after all this dietary excess, that sometimes we would start our “New Years Diet” on Dec. 27th! Of course this would be some kind of crazy restrictive cleanse diet that left me in a state of continual mild hunger and I could typically never sustain it for more than a few weeks.  As I got older, I began to realize that this New Year’s diet thing was just stupid because even though I would usually lose about 10 pounds, I NEVER COULD STICK WITH IT and would just gain the weight right back. So eventually, I just gave up on the New Year’s diets altogether.  

Last year, my husband came home from the doctor with a diagnosis of pre-diabetes. I’ve been a cardiac RN for over 25 years and was mortified at this diagnosis after seeing so much suffering in my patients over the years because of Type 2 diabetes.  I had heard that a WFPBD could reverse diabetes and so we tried it, and lo and behold, within 4 months, Paul’s blood work showed that his diabetes had been reversed! 

A WFPBD is built around the healthy carbohydrates of fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains.  A WFPBD is a HIGH FIBER DIET by design. The average American only gets about 15 Gm of fiber a day which leads to many dietary related illnesses such as colon cancer and many other chronic diseases. By contrast, a WFPBD aims to get about 40 Gm of fiber a day. This leaves you feeling full and helps fight perverse cravings that occur when we are nutritionally deprived. The satiety of a high fiber diet is the reason that a WFPB lifestyle is so successful for permanent weight loss.  I know that once I get to a certain level of hunger, I lose all will power and will eat virtually anything I can get my hands on. I found that after I switched to this high-fiber diet (with no limits on portion sizes), I was never hungry in between meals for the first time in my life.  This removed all the most common downfalls of desperation eating and the need to always meticulously plan ahead so I wouldn’t be trapped in a dangerous “hunger situation”.   My husband and I both lost over 20# and have kept it off with seemingly little to no effort.

The Marshall Plan documentary full version

When Texas Mayor Ed Smith III was diagnosed with prostate cancer, he elected to forego conventional treatment in favor of a whole food, plant-based diet. The results were nothing short of miraculous: his cancer disappeared. He and his wife embarked on a mission to help their town and community adopt a healthier lifestyle based on plant foods. Their story is being told in THE MARSHALL PLAN. The documentary focuses on the transformation of one town into a healthier place when its residents adopted new eating strategies. The stories of Marshall’s residents are combined with interviews from expert doctors and researchers in the field of nutrition, and professional athletes.

How Can We Avoid Getting Alzheimer’s Or Dementia? Did People Eat Animal Flesh 3 Meals A Day 150 Years Ago? Pam Popper, Ph.D. ND – The Real Truth About Health

Overmedicated, overfed, and malnourished, most Americans fail to realize the answer to lower disease rates doesn’t lie in more pills but in the foods we eat.With so much misleading nutritional information regarded as common knowledge, from “everything in moderation” to “avoid carbs,” the average American is ill-equipped to recognize the deadly force of abundant, cheap, unhealthy food options that not only offer no nutritional benefits but actually bring on a disease.

In this lecture, Pamela A. Popper, Ph.D. ND, speaks about the dire state of American health—the result of poor nutrition choices stemming from food politics and medical misinformation. But, more important, she shares the key to getting and staying healthy for life.

Backed by numerous scientific studies, Pamela A. Popper, Ph.D., ND details how dietary choices either build health or destroy it.
