Many of us have a friend or loved one that suffers from some sort of neurobehavioral or neurodegenerative illness. It is generally regarded by both the allopathic and alternative medicine communities that neurobehavioral illnesses, such as depression, and neurodegenerative illnesses, such as Alzheimer’s disease, are very different ailments – both symptomatically and metabolically. In fact, a large body of research suggests that neurobehavioral and neurodegenerative illnesses are different points on the exact same catabolic, inflammatory, insulin resistant, metabolically suboptimal spectrum. In turn, clinical depression is an excellent early indicator of risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
