Evolving Past Cognitive Decline
The Not Old Better Show, Interview Series
We have a fascinating guest today. We’ll hear from Dr Nate Bergman, and Dr Bergman is doing some amazing work in the areas of brain science and Alzheimer’s disease. As many of you, the subject of cognition, exercise, and cognitive decline are real areas of interest to The Not Old Better Show audience, and Dr Bergman has an unmatched expertise.
For Nate Bergman, DO, MBA, left, functional medicine has given him a foundation or a “way of thinking” about a patient’s health history that he didn’t find in his traditional training. His path to becoming a functional medicine specialist is the result of a series of connections he made with colleagues. His wife, a registered dietitian, also heavily influenced his choice of specialty.
“I was always open to the notion of treating the whole person, it just didn’t seem practical” says Dr. Bergman. “When I was in medical school, it seemed to me that we fell short in this regard, but there wasn’t a viable alternative. Patients didn’t have time to tell their stories, and providers didn’t have the resources to ‘put it all together.’ We weren’t meeting people where they needed to be met.” Please check out evolvingpast.com to find out more.
