#8: Eat to Boost Your Brain with Dr Ayan Panja

24 Oct 2018

On this episode, I invite fellow doctor and friend Dr Ayan Panja, General Practitioner, super generalist, lifestyle medicine enthusiast and co-founder of Lobe Medical to talk about eating for our mind - with specific regard to neurodegenerative disease.

We talk through:

  • What we mean by the concept of Eating for your brain
  • How food is such an important consideration in brain health
  • What we discuss with patients in regard to cognitive decline
  • How many listeners in their 30-40s might be thinking that this topic is only relevant for an older generation - but actually, looking after your brain is a lifelong process
  • The impact of stress, sleep and exercise on your brain
  • What neurogenesis is
  • The burden of Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease
  • The factors that have been proven to reduce the effects of disease

If I was to suggest one recipe from my cookbook The Doctor’s Kitchen that pretty much sums up our conversation - it would be the  Elegant Flavanol Porridge - it has whole oats in it and also includes berries and cacao - which is a lovely chocolate spice that adds a wealth of aroma to your foods.

You can find Dr Ayan at the social medial links below and at Lobe Medical - where you can find out more about his amazing project, teaching GP’s and other practitioners how to improve their lifestyle medical consultations.
