It's an incredible episode. We welcome back to the show today Dr. John Hart, who is a longevity expert. We had him on the show probably over a year ago and I'd highly recommend you listen to that episode, too, if you haven't, because it really complements this one. Today we are tacking the topic of Alzheimer's and dementia and brain cognition in general, really, and it was absolutely fascinating.
[00:02:00] If you're not familiar with Dr. John Hart, he runs a very busy functional medicine practice specializing in brain health. His passion for brain health led to the establishment of The Hart Clinic for Brain Health Medicine, which we get to talk about today. Him and his team have completed Dr. Dale Bredesen's practitioner training at the Buck Institute of Research of Aging and are offering patients access to this groundbreaking protocol which has been shown to reverse early Alzheimer's disease. I can tell you what, guys, if you know anyone that is suffering with dementia or Alzheimer's, you have to listen to this episode and start implementing some practical advice that John says today, and if you have got a lot of sugar in your diet, I promise you after this episode I'm pretty sure you're going to be removing it - well, I hope so, anyway.
Today's episode just really reinforces the fact about removing processed foods, getting the sugars out of your diet, giving care to yourself, and getting all the basic fundamentals right to set you up well for the long term, because you know prevention is the greatest cure of all and listening to John today is just another fantastic reminder.
[00:03:00] We get a lot of emails with people coming in and struggling and confused about their diet and that's all we want to encourage is to bring them things back.

Hey, this is Guy Lawrence. I'm joined with Stuart Cooke as always. Hey Stu!
Our awesome guest today is Dr. John Hart. John, welcome to the show.
Thanks Guy, thanks for having us back. Stu, how are you doing?
Very well, thank you, John. Great to have you back on the show.
Yeah, it's been over a year mate. Time is flying, it's incredible. We're very much excited to get you back on the show, John, because the last episode you did with us did incredibly well and there was a wealth of information. We're looking forward to stuck into today's topic, which we haven't cover on the show either, believe it or not. It's going to be fantastic.
Now John, just to get all our listeners up to speed, would you mind just sort of filling in a little bit about yourself and what you do?
Sure. The area of medicine I work in is called functional medicine, which is looking at the root cause of chronic degenerative diseases that are by far the commonest problem in society now. It used to be up til about 100 years ago that most people died and suffered from infections and trauma, but we've controlled the environment now to the point that infections and trauma are no longer big problems. The big problems now are the chronic degenerative diseases that do damage a little bit every day that adds up over decades and eventually ends up manifesting as the things that commonly kill us - dementia, cancer, heart attack, stroke. Functional medicine is a branch of medicine that looks at the underlying causes of those diseases. Rather than just getting symptomatic control, it's going downstream, looking at the cause, fixing the cause, and then the symptoms go away.
