Studies have suggested that up to one-third of worldwide dementias could be preventable. However, this number may be an underestimation due to the numerous factors influencing cognition. The majority of dementia prevention recommendations focus on the body and not necessarily the brain itself. Therefore, preventing dementia requires a comprehensive, whole-body, systems approach.
In this webinar, join renowned naturopathic doctor, Dr. Romi Fung, as he sheds light on the landscape of the brain and how naturopathic approaches can aid in preserving brain and cognitive health. Dr. Fung will delve into the common contributing factors of cognitive decline and share insights on how individuals of all ages can optimize their cognitive function and reduce the risk of developing dementia. Whether you’re young or old, this webinar will empower you with the knowledge to enhance your cognitive well-being!

A passionate, driven, motivated and renowned clinician in integrative and functional medicine focused on optimal cognitive well-being and health, Dr. Romi Fung, ND, M.Sc, Ph.D (cand.) helps patients living with dementia improve their quality of life by taking an integrative and functional approach. He believes that dementia is not just a condition of the brain—what happens in the body can also happen in the brain and there are several biochemical connections from chronic diseases that correlate to cognitive decline. Dementia is a syndrome involving various levels as a reflection of the brain and its systemic landscape and our approach as naturopathic physicians involves working with those foundations.
