Doctor Recommends Certain Diet to Prevent Stroke, Heart Attacks and Other Illnesses

The Alpena Senior Center was a full house this week as seniors learned a different method to eat. Trying to reduce strokes, heart attacks, and other illnesses, Neurologist, Roger Gietzen recommends a certain lifestyle.

Gietzen said it’s sad when his patients become worse when fighting an illness. He said that’s why he’s reaching out to seniors in Alpena County. For seniors changing the way they eat can be a bit challenging but Gietzen recommends everyone take one step at a time.
