In functional medicine, Alzheimer’s disease is often referred to as type 3 diabetes because studies show that glucose intolerance leads to an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia. Elevations in blood sugar levels may negatively affect memory and brain function, even in non-diabetic patients. http://www.theivey.com/2017/03/23/a-closer-look-at-cognitive-function-and-nutrition/

The Ivey's amazing Art Therapist, Lela Kometiani, used molding paste today to put layers and texture on canvas. Then she had our members paint on top of it. It was really beautiful and such a cool process. This unique approach also helped our members with vision impairment by giving the canvas more definition.
