I use it in my morning coffee (bulletproof style), add it in salad dressings, cook with it, etc. It'...

Re: Finding your APOE4 doctor?

I started with an IFM doctor a couple of weeks ago. He cued right in on diet and lifestyle suggestions after learning about my family history. I agree with the suggestion of finding a functional medicine provider near you.
