I've got an exciting episode here where I am being interviewed by my friend, Dr. Heather Sandison for Reverse her Alzheimer's Summit. And we talk about the best nutrition strategies to stop neuroinflammation and Alzheimer's. So I'm going to go through how to stimulate brain cell autophagy in this. I'm going to talk about the impact of ketones and how their epigenetic modulators that help turn down inflammation in the brain. I'm going to go through some really powerful strategies that you guys are going to love. And if you know anybody that perhaps has had a family member deal with dementia, Alzheimer's, or perhaps it's your family member, perhaps you just want to make sure you don't end up with Alzheimer's, with dementia, some of these fast growing neurodegenerative conditions, then this is the podcast for you. And go to the show notes as well on drjockers .com for this podcast. Look up this podcast and you will see a link for Dr. Sandison's Reverse Alzheimer's Summit. It's taking place June 13th through 19th, 2023. So depending on when you're listening to this podcast, I'm putting this out June 1st.

So if you're catching this before the end of June, you should be able to access this Reverse Alzheimer's Summit. Some great interviews in this. Dr. Dale Bredesen, you've got Dr. David Perlmutter, some of the top functional medicine experts when it comes to dementia, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, neurodegenerative conditions. This is going to be an amazing event. I was really honored to be a part of it and to do this interview. And you guys are going to love the interview. I mean, just amazing topic.

Welcome to this episode of the Reverse Alzheimer's Summit. I'm so delighted to introduce you to Dr. David Jockers today. He's a doctor of natural medicine and runs one of the most popular natural health websites, drjockers .com, which gets over 1 million monthly visitors. And his work has been seen on popular media, such as the Dr. Oz Show and Hallmark Home and Family. I'm really delighted for him to share what he learned about the keto metabolic breakthrough. He's written a book about it and also about fasting. He's written The Fasting Transformation. He's a world renowned expert in ketosis. And you already know from hearing other episodes of this podcast that I am also a fan of ketosis and how I have seen it clinically just transform people's lives and cognitive function. Dr. Jockers, welcome. Thank you so much, Dr. Sanderson. Really appreciate you and thanks for all the great work you're doing. So you really connect the dots between mitochondria and ketosis as well as fasting. So walk us through that. What are the connections? How does this work? Yeah. Well, you see, when it comes to metabolic health, our body really can run on two major energy sources. One is glucose or sugar. We measure that. We look at our blood glucose and then the other is fatty acids. And I say, you know, sources, but it's kind of like a two A and a two B. So we have fatty acids. And then we also have ketones, which are these water soluble molecules that are smaller. They're shorter than fatty acids. And the interesting thing about ketones is they can cross the blood brain barrier. You see, in times of famine, you know, our body, our blood sugar would go down in our storage of sugar, which we store sugar in our muscles and our liver. We call that glycogen. When that would go down, our ancestors would start to burn fat and we do it as well. Our body is metabolically adapted to be able to burn fat for fuel. However, we can't get these fatty acids across the blood brain barrier. So our liver takes the fatty acids, converts them into ketones, and now they're able to cross the blood brain barrier where they are a great fuel source for the brain, for particularly, you know, the mitochondria in the brain.
