Dr David Perlmutter is now a well-recognised champion of integrative medicine, being a board certified neurologist who embraces evidence-based natural therapies and the international best-selling author of Grain Brain.
Dr Perlmutter's journey to integrative medicine started from a simple desire to seek for "MORE!" for his patients' health. This led to him exploring the dietary, lifestyle and supplementary regimes which importantly MODULATE (not block) inflammation which we know is a key driver in not just neurological disease, but is implicated in most modern diseases. Dr Perlmutter also describes his revelation of how many patients simply felt better when they eradicated gluten from their diet, whether they were diagnosed with Coeliac Disease or not.
