With Alzheimer’s, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, Parkinson’s and mood disorders on the rise, it is time to safeguard yourself against cognitive decline and neurological disease with your diet and lifestyle,” says Dr. Sarah Axtell, naturopathic doctor and founder of Lakeside Natural Medicine.
