In This Episode
Phil Gutis, a regular guest we affectionately call our Assistant Sherpa, was diagnosed with younger onset Alzheimer’s disease almost four years ago.
For the past year or so, Phil has really been focusing on his health, and it’s been paying off…kinda, sorta. In episode 116, Phil reveals he didn’t qualify for a study because he did too well on the cognitive testing.
In this episode, we’re looking at the flip side of that, talking more about what’s going well, how that feels for him, and maybe most important for our listeners, what he’s doing.
Phil calls it resisting Alzheimer’s, but he’s a former New York Times reporter and ACLU spokesperson, so he’s cleverly given it a social media-friendly label: #ALZResistance. (And thanks to Tim, there’s also a social media-friendly graphic.)
Listen in to swipe ideas for your own person and yourself, and welcome to the #ALZResistance.
