Day #227 in lockdown in Mumbai, India hotel…A published story from 7 years ago today…

Jessica L. Grain Brain Success Story

Today’s only photo (please excuse my redundancy) is again repeated from our post on this date in 2013 when Dr. David Perlmutter (one of many research studies here at this link) posted a story about my success with a low carb/keto way of eating. For our full story from that date, please see our link here.

Today’s story is by no means intended to “toot my own horn” or elicit praise or recognition from any of our readers. My purpose is solely to inspire others who may have been considering some lifestyle changes to improve health, reduce symptoms of inflammatory disease and reduce the likelihood of cognitive issues often affecting seniors and, in some cases, those in mid-life or younger.

If only one person reads today’s post and is inspired to read and follow Dr. David Perlmutter, the New York Times Best Selling Author of the books listed below, my message would be worthwhile. I apologize for the repeated story for those not interested, but perhaps you may pass on some of this priceless information to someone you know or love.

After the publication of Dr. Perlmutter’s first book and having had such outstanding results from his (and other medical professionals) recommendation that ultimately provided me with the health I’d need to be able to travel the world, I contacted him. He is a highly regarded board-certified neurologist and MD.
He replied promptly and asked if I’d be willing to write the story here for his site. I was excited and pleased to do so. This was not for any financial remuneration, but hopefully, my story would inspire others, like me, who were subject to a wide array of hereditary inflammatory diseases which had impacted my life for many years, which I’ve shared here ad nauseam.
His prompt reply after the publication of his first book, Grain Brain, thrilled me. Surely, then, he wasn’t as busy as he is now. He does regular podcasts on YouTube and Facebook, most of which I have listened to while walking recently and over the years. For those interested, here is the link to his YouTube page.
He’s an excellent writer and speaker and has provided considerable research and relevant information about COVID-19 and his ongoing research on the functions of the human brain, Alzheimer’s disease, cognitive decline and disease, and how it’s impacted by our diet, inflammation, and lifestyle.
Many of us have experienced some cognitive decline while aging after an accident or injury or have observed it in our aging parents, loved ones, and friends. His books and podcasts can be an invaluable resource for information and education.
