Yogurt might help prevent Alzheimer’s disease

Researchers in Ireland have shown that the effects of Alzheimer’s can be delayed by changing the gut microbiome. In the study, performed on mice, memory problems were reversed after old mice were given friendly gut bacteria. The research suggests gut-friendly bacteria could help to ward off Alzheimer’s disease.

What our patients are saying about our office:

“Dr. McGee and staff are phenomenal! They are always very friendly, professional, and I am in and out in a timely fashion. I was once a skeptic in reference to chiropractic medicine. Dr. McGee definitely changed that and I am now a true believer. I have recently started going for preventive care sessions and my back feels better than it has in years!”
