Main Presentation: “Nutrients for Memory: The Hawaii Dementia Prevention Trial” by Steve Blake, Sc.D
The main goal of the presentation is to show how you can use the techniques from the Hawaii Dementia Prevention Trial to reduce your own risk of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease. All of the nutrients used were cleared by the Internal Review Board of the University of Hawaii for safety in elders. If you are already suffering memory problems, you may be able to slow, stop, or possibly even reverse the progression of Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia. These techniques are based upon good medical science with citations to over one hundred peer-reviewed studies. Find out more in my latest book, Nutrients for Memory. I will guide you on what you can do for yourself to help your memory.
