Why is nutrition so important for brain health & healthy aging?
What you eat and drink directly affects the structure of your brain and structure, in turn, influences function, not only in terms of your risk for physical brain diseases such as dementia but also your mood, memory, focus, and other mental health disorders.
Not only that, but nutrition also plays a central role in how well you age; many of the ‘health issues’ we assume are an inevitable part of aging can be significantly minimized with nutrient-dense foods and supplements.
"...I did not know if I would find anyone who would understand my Celiac situation well enough. I was always sick after eating, feeling tired all the time and many symptoms. Now, I am far better than I was, I am still healing but am far better than I was before. I have a lot more confidence with what I can and can't eat, feel more energetic and no longer have problems of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or stomach cramps"
"..you (Doug) gave very clear explanations as to what my problem was and what to do and had genuine concern for my health. The extremely quick responses to my emails, as well as the great support and understanding that I recieved - I would recommend Doug Cook to anyone!!! He is very clear and patient"

“Doug has a knack for taking complex subjects and breaking them down into clear, easy-to-relate-to articles. He takes out the confusion and uncertainty and leaves you with straightforward, useful information that you can put to work in your life right away. It’s obvious how much he cares about his work and the people he’s supporting. I look forward to working with him again in the future!”
"… my homeopath sent me to Doug Cook. She said he was the very best. Doug, in a very calm, down-to-earth manner explained the conditions of my sentence and what could be done to reduce it - for the first time I saw a ray of hope.
He went above and beyond his duties explaining to me at every turn and at every blood test – in detail – what the results meant and what I needed to do thereafter. His knowledge is profound and he goes through great lengths to ensure that I stay on track.
I must tell you that the amazing results I have now – and I am not out of the woods yet – were all thanks to him. He was my cheerleader, my coach, my mentor and my dietitian all is one. Thanks Doug – thanks a million"
“you [Doug] have helped me more than any Doctor. By putting in place a few changes in my diet & using weights I feel for once in my life that everything has come together nicely. I cannot thank you enough”.
“Doug was recommended to me by a family member and his knowledge and support have been instrumental in helping me to understand the relationship between food and diabetes. Since contacting Doug, I have lost weight, maintained steady blood sugar and A1C levels and have felt much healthier and energetic overall. I would highly recommend Doug!”
