Michael Morgan has a brain of his own that holds an undeniable amount of intelligence and determination.
This week’s episode on Meathead Hippie is nerdy in all the right places. Guest speaker, Michael Morgan, comes from an extensive background in craniosacral therapy and its relation to Alzheimer’s disease. Some people believe it’s one that is incurable, but Morgan’s practice in functional medicine seems to prove otherwise. “With the right changes in diet and exercise, Alzheimer’s can be preventable and even reversible… We have enough people in the world and we can train people quickly enough to start to significantly reduce the detriment of Alzheimer’s in the next 5 years.”
A man who will continue to make advancements in preventing Alzheimer’s disease through functional medicine and craniosacral therapy, Morgan will not stop until his audacious goal is achieved.
