Welcome to the Fasting and Longevity Summit. I’m your host, Dr. David Jockers. And today I’m excited to interview Dr. David Perlmutter, who is a board-certified neurologist. He’s a six time New York Times best-selling author. Some of his famous books include Grain Brain, Brain Maker, and Brainwash, and his latest New York Times best-selling book is called Drop Acid, and it focuses on the pivotal role of uric acid in metabolic diseases. It was published in February of 2022. Dr. Perlmutter serves on the board of directors, and he’s a fellow of the American College of Nutrition. You can find him at And today we’re going to talk about how to prevent Alzheimer’s and extend the vitality of your brain. Obviously, if you’re interested in longevity, you need to know how to take care of your brain. Alzheimer’s, dementia, and cognitive decline are on the rise. And so many people, as they get into their seventies and eighties and now even more so in their sixties, they’re developing cognitive decline. They’re developing dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Disease rates are going up significantly. 

We’re going to talk about why that is the root cause factors behind why people are having higher rates of cognitive decline neurodegeneration. We’re going to talk about some of the key lab markers we mentioned uric acid. We’re going to talk about 3 to 5 other key labs that you want to be aware of as you are trying to monitor how healthy your brain and your body are, as you are aging and your risk of developing cognitive decline. We’re going to talk about evidence-based lifestyle strategies for a healthy brain and the best foods and nutrients to support a healthy brain. So you guys are going to love this interview. Please share it with anybody that you know and that you care about. Without further ado, let’s go into the interview. 

Well, Dr. Perlmutter, always great to speak with you, and just really excited about this topic. Alzheimer’s disease, obviously, it’s through the roof, cognitive decline. There are so many people dealing with it. I know 6 million in the United States. And that’s supposed to go up to like 15 million by the year 2050. So there’s an extraordinary rise. Why is that? What are we doing? What’s ultimately causing such an increase in cognitive decline?

Are you putting Alzheimers & Parkinson’s disease together in your thoughts? If not, why focus just on AD? Also why do so many presenters discuss prevention and not strategies to deal with these diseases? Its infuriating!
Dr Fuhrman said that intermittent fasting is not going to be useful because so many people are addicted to food. What is going to slow the progression of Parkinson’s & AD in terms of food intake –schedule and specific foods? Where are the nutritionists? Will certain foods promote L-Dopa ( eg fava beans)? Am I doomed to be on dopamine until it no longer helps/
