Did you know that over 80% of chronic disease, including cognitive decline, can be prevented and possibly reversed when individuals adopt healthy lifestyle habits? These habits include a diet focused on whole mostly plant-based foods along with daily movement, stress reduction, avoidance of substances, healthy sleep and social connection. Research shows that less than 3% of the US population follows these healthy lifestyle habits with diet oftentimes being a critical place to intervene.
