At The Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement and Lifetime Television’s “A Women’s Health Summit: It Starts with the Brain” on November 1, 2017, Marc Milstein, Ph.D. and founder of Dr. Milstein Education, spoke about the gut’s connection to the brain.
“Individuals with Alzheimer’s disease have a different type of bacteria in the gut. Our gut is talking to our brain, so we have to understand how our food feeds our intestine,” he told WAM founder Maria Shriver.
