Nutritional Medicine and the Aging Brain: Prevention and Management of Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease

Dr. James Meschino DC, MS, RHOP

Credit Hours: 2



As the large baby boomer population ages, the total number of people with dementia is rising. Estimates vary, but experts report more than 7 million people aged 65 or older had dementia in 2020. This means more than 9 million Americans could have dementia by 2030 and nearly 12 million by 2040. Alzheimer’s remains the fifth-leading cause of death among Americans ages 65 and older. Between 2000 and 2019, deaths from stroke, heart disease and HIV decreased, whereas reported deaths from AD increased more than 145%. 1 in 14 people over the age of 65 and 1 in every 6 people over the age of 80 presently has Alzheimer’s disease.

Currently there is no effective drug therapy to prevent or treat Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, but there are proven nutrition, supplementation and other natural interventions that are shown in human clinical trials to be impactful. Most medical doctors have never seen this research because it does not involve drugs, and thus, chiropractors need to step up to help their patients combat these dreaded and quality of life altering conditions. In this seminar, Dr. Meschino reviews the peer-reviewed research on this important subject and provides you with concrete strategies to help your patients prevent these problems and reverse early-stage memory loss (mild cognitive impairment).
