The Healers Café

Hi, it's Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) and I want to welcome you to the Healers Cafe. I am so excited to be doing this series of interviews and what I'll be doing is, is asking all kinds of healthcare practitioners, doctors, healers of all types, to really share with all of you their experience, why they became healers, what called them what they think about this being a healer thing. Is it, a thing? Who's really healing in this, what they've experienced from their their interaction with clients and patients and what the takeaways and understanding of what the process of healing is all about and the process of life. So that's the essence of what I'm doing. I'm hoping that this will serve also for patients that have issues and are looking for different ways of approaching it. * De-Registered, revoked & retired after 30+ years of practice.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger, FCAH, RBHT (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) chats with Dr. Romi, ND, about the preventative measures available for brain health in the prevention of Alzheimer’s and Dementia.

Highlights from today's episode include:

Dr. Romi Fung, ND

I'm trying to tell everyone else because right now, the evidence, at least in the written literature, it says that about a third of all dementias is preventable. But I believe that that is underestimated. I believe at least 60% If not 90% of dementia can potentially be prevented through a lot of our nutritional means dietary as well as lifestyle. 

Dr. Romi Fung, ND

And there's one gene now that's isolated called bace-one, B A C E -1, and by eliciting it, that we actually start making and producing more of the beta amyloid plaque. And there are many things, I'm going to give you one example right now that induces this plaque, the number one I find is something called hypoxia, or lack of oxygen.

Dr. Romi Fung, ND

And iron is what we need to make hemoglobin in our blood. If we don't have enough hemoglobin in our blood, our ability to carry oxygen throughout the body and thus throughout the brain is impacted.

 

ABOUT DR. ROMI FUNG, ND:

Dr. Romi Fung is a naturopathic physician practicing in Richmond, BC, Canada with a special focus in dementia and cognitive health. Dr. Romi works with patients living with cognitive decline and dementia by augmenting their brain's environment. He believes there is more to dementia than just working primarily with the brain; several metabolic and biochemical factors affecting our brain emerge from the body. Dr. Romi takes a comprehensive approach in working with his patients, from screening for inflammation, insulin resistance, and imbalanced hormones – all of which contribute significantly to our brain health, to interventions, including lifestyle coaching and clinical nutrition.

Dr. Romi completed his undergraduate Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences from Simon Fraser University followed by graduating from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine with a Doctor in Naturopathy. While building his practice, Dr. Romi went on to complete a Master of Science in Aging and Health from Queen’s University and is now pursuing a Doctor of Philosophy in Aging and Health, also from Queen’s University.

On top of his practice, Dr. Romi is an instructor teaching Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture to future naturopathic physicians and clinic supervisor at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine - Boucher Campus.
