He was frustrated at the drugs-only approach his mother was given through her diagnosis of dementia at just 58 and began to research other ways to prevent brain decline.
We found it extremely interesting and would recommend you give it a listen.

While she pushed me to do more sooner than I would have done on my own, her style was gentle but powerful. I never felt that I was pushed too hard.
