 Our NEURO Plan is a highly personalized lifestyle change plan that revolutionized our clinical patient care outcomes. In fact, we saw so much improvement in our clinical practice (supported by additional research), we knew we needed to share the power of the NEURO plan with more than our patient population. Our first step in sharing this plan with the world was our best-selling book The Alzheimer’s Solution. We have also created an intensive online course, NEURO Academy, to bring the message to more people.

The NEURO Plan transforms brain (and body) health through five areas of focus: 

N | Nutrition
A whole-food, plant-based diet low in sugar, salt, and processed foods.

E | Exercise
An active lifestyle with movement every hour—not just a stop at the gym after an otherwise sedentary day.

U | Unwind
Stress management in the form of meditation, yoga, mindful breathing exercises, time spent in nature, all with the support of strong communities.

R | Restore
Seven to eight hours of regular, detoxifying sleep through intensive sleep hygiene, treatment for sleep disorders, and management of medications and foods that adversely affect sleep.

O | Optimize
Social and multimodal activities (like music and language) to challenge and engage multiple brain centers.
