Dr Helena Popovic

 Dr Helena Popovic is a medical doctor, best-selling author and international speaker who shows people how to boost their brain at any age or stage of life so they can:

  1. perform at their peak throughout their career
  2. eliminate brain fog in menopause
  3. avoid Alzheimer’s and other dementias in retirement.

She also provides a road map for living longer, stronger, healthier and happier.

Dr Helena graduated from the university of Sydney and has spent over 30 years researching the brain and teaching people how to reach their full potential. Discovering how to boost our brain is the single most important investment we can make to achieve our goals, solve complex problems and create a fulfilling life.

Dr Helena’s philosophy is that education is more powerful than medication and she believes in growing bolder rather than older.

Quotes by Dr Helena Popovic

“I am just flabbergasted at how little most doctors still know about dementia.”

“We can see that brain changes leading to Alzheimer’s starts 20-30 years before we get any symptoms.”

“Every 3 seconds someone, somewhere in the world is being diagnosed with dementia.”

“The medical profession has to change the culture of diagnose and adios.”

“They are giving up hope before they even to attempt to improve their quality of life.”

“A single gene never tells the whole story.”

“Our genes do not determine our destiny.”

“Our decisions are more powerful than our DNA.”

“Neurons are not getting enough energy to function properly.”

“Sugar is toxic to the brain.”

“There was a Lancet report that said if we remove 12 modifiable risk factors, we can prevent at least 40% of cases of dementia.”

“If you gorge on fruit not a good idea, if you drink fruit juice terrible idea, if you eat dried fruit bad idea.”

“Fruit juice, soft drinks and any sugary drinks are like machine gun fire, bullets to our brain.”

“I think not offering people with Alzheimer’s, dementia & Parkinson’s, a ketogenic diet as a potential therapy is negligent.”

“I think it is also the low carb state, in and of itself, that triggers a whole cascade of other protective and brain healthy reactions.”

“20 years ago I was promoting a low fat, high carb diet because that was what I was taught was the healthy way to go.”

“Now I am constantly apologising – I am really sorry on behalf of my whole profession that we got it so wrong.”

“Grow bolder, not older.”
