On this episode, I invite fellow doctor and friend Dr Ayan Panja, General Practitioner, super generalist, lifestyle medicine enthusiast and co-founder of Lobe Medical to talk about eating for our mind - with specific regard to neurodegenerative disease.
We talk through:What we mean by the concept of Eating for your brainHow food is such an important consideration in brain healthWhat we discuss with patients in regard to cognitive declineHow many listeners in their 30-40s might be thinking that this topic is only relevant for an older generation - but actually, looking after your brain is a lifelong processThe impact of stress, sleep and exercise on your brainWhat neurogenesis isThe burden of Dementia and Alzheimer’s DiseaseThe factors that have been proven to reduce the effects of disease
If I was to suggest one recipe from my cookbook The Doctor's Kitchen that pretty much sums up our conversation - it would be the Elegant Flavanol Porridge - it has whole oats in it and also includes berries and cacao - which is a lovely chocolate spice that adds a wealth of aroma to your foods.
You can find Dr Ayan at the social medial links below and at Lobe Medical - where you can find out more about his amazing project, teaching GP's and other practitioners how to improve their lifestyle medical consultations.
The Doctor's Kitchen cookbook is out now. Order your copy here.
