Dr. Gundry talks with Max Lugavere about optimal brain health

The world has changed quite a bit since our days as hunter gatherers — and it’s left our brains in a state of despair.

According to the World Health Assembly, the burden of depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions is on the rise.

Not to mention, the number of people living with dementia is growing by the day.

The good news is, we can turn things around.

In his latest book, The Genius Life, Max says we can heal our bodies and brains by changing our lifestyle… improving our cognitive function and emotional wellness as a result.
