Brain Change with David Perlmutter, MD

Watch Tuesday, March 11, 2014 at 1pm on WMHT TV.

“If you could make just three simple changes in your life to prevent, or even reverse, memory loss and other brain disorders, wouldn’t you?” – Dr. David Perlmutter

In this new and empowering 90-minute special, Dr. Perlmutter reveals just what those changes are, and how you can begin the path to better brain health today. Airing across the country, BRAINCHANGE is a follow-up to the lessons and information Dr. Perlmutter has shared in Grain Brain, his #1 New York Times bestselling book about our body’s silent killers: wheat, carbohydrates and sugar. Dr. Perlmutter overturns many of the assumptions we’ve made about nutrition for the past few decades, and shares with you the science that backs up his findings. Get more information here.
