I was a hard-charging corporate professional who rose through the ranks to executive management and had the title, power, and prestige I dreamt of since college.
Like you, I was puzzled as to why I could not shed those pesky 15 pounds, why I could barely keep my eyes open after 2:00 pm, why I couldn’t remember every detail of a conference call without writing nearly every word. And, after sleeping like a rock my whole life, I was waking up and having trouble getting back to sleep.
Added to these symptoms was my newly-discovered genetic information. I have a genetic marker, APOE4, that increases the chances for Alzheimer’s disease. My mother has Alzheimer’s, and so did her mother. That was the catalyst to make lifelong changes.
