Best Selling Author of “Genius Foods” to Speak at Zen Den™ in Norwell Max Lugavere will Discuss the Critical Link Between the Brain and Food

September 17, 2019


WHAT: Max Lugavere, New York Times best-selling author of Genius Foods: Become Smarter, Happier, and More Productive While Protecting Your Brain for Life will speak at an event at Zen Den™ in Norwell about the critical link between the brain and the food you eat. After his mother was diagnosed with a mysterious form of dementia, Max Lugavere put his media career on hold to learn everything he could about the workings of the human brain and his mother’s condition. He consumed the most up-to-date scientific research, talked to dozens of scientists and clinicians around the world, and visited the country’s very best neurology departments. He appears regularly on the Dr. Oz Show, the Rachel Ray Show, and the Doctors. 

At the event, Lugavere will share his insights into how to improve brain power and offer a practical road map to eliminating brain fog and optimizing the brain’s health and performance.  The discussion will be moderated by Michael P. Murphy and Mary-Kim Garrity, Zen Den™ co-owners and founders. Michael and Mary will also record the discussion for their Zen Den™ Health Talks Podcast. The event will also consist of a Q&A, an auction of Zen Den’s services, and a book signing. Attendees will also be able to experience some of Max’s recipes and other healthy food.

All proceeds from ticket sales will go towards the Alzheimer’s Association. Tickets are $125 per person and can be purchased at
