Leading Neurologist David Perlmutter Addresses Brain Health On Oprah's Dr. Oz Radio Show

Dr. Perlmutter identified simple, preventative measures for slowing disease progression and advancing brain function by treating the underlying causes of the disease or disorder rather than simply focusing on treating the symptoms.

    ASHEVILLE, NC, April 08, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dr. David Perlmutter, a widely recognized leader in the field of neurological disorders, appeared on The Oprah Winfrey's Dr. Oz radio show on Friday, April 3. Dr. Mehmet Oz, Oprah's doctor and author of the best-selling YOU book series, invited Perlmutter to appear on his show to discuss various topics related to brain health. Perlmutter educated listeners on Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's and ADHD and the significant role of prevention against these neurological diseases.

"We need to treat not just the smoke, but the fire," said Perlmutter, indicating that mainstream neurology focuses more on treating the symptoms of these diseases rather than their underlying causes. He believes that individuals can play a key role in the prevention of these conditions through simple lifestyle tools including physical and mental exercise, DHA consumption and caloric restriction. "We can control our genetic destiny," said Perlmutter. "And the time to fix the roof is when the sun is shining."

Furthermore, Perlmutter told Dr. Oz that there is an over-reliance on medication for the treatment of neurological diseases. He offered information to listeners about the significance of anti-oxidants and other supplements as a successful alternative for treating the symptoms of these conditions.

In the interview, Perlmutter also addressed neurological development in children during their first five years of life. He called this period a "window of opportunity" for early educational experiences and emphasized the importance of playtime over structured academics. "Play is what develops imagination," said Perlmutter. "And this allows them to understand symbolism, giving them a great advantage for dealing with concepts like numbers later on."

Perlmutter is the author of several books including The Better Brain Book, which received multiple mentions by Dr. Oz, who said, "If you want to be smart, take a look at it."
