Meet Dr David
Dr. David Ajibade is the founder and medical director of Brain and Body Solutions, Ltd., an integrated health center in Abuja, Nigeria, and the Executive Director of Brain and Body Foundation LLC, a non-profit organization established in Nigeria and the U.S. Over the years, he has actively advocated for the use of nutrients and nutraceuticals as adjuvants in the treatment of brain disorders, especially for conditions that do not have a satisfactory, clear-cut treatment. Such disorders include but are not limited to diseases like cerebral palsy, epilepsy, dementia, and other cognitive impairments to name a few. Since 2013, he has treated thousands of patients who have seen remarkable improvements in their mental, neurological, and physical health through the use of various supplements. It is through this treatment practice that he continues to see promising results in a yearlong Nigerian study researching the use of Vitamin D3 in the treatment of sickle cell disease. Early results indicate it is highly likely that the results from this study will forever change the way sickle cell disease is treated in Nigeria, and around the world.
Prior to his work with Brain and Body, Dr. Ajibade has worked for several hospitals and organizations, including the United Nations Foundation (UNF). As a consultant to the UNF, Dr. Ajibade played a key role in the drafting of Nigeria’s first comprehensive eHealth strategy. This was a collaborative effort between the Federal Ministries of Health and Communication Technology, and major telecommunications companies throughout Nigeria.
In 1997, Dr. Ajibade received his medical degree from the University of Ibadan, in Ibadan, Nigeria. After working in the Radiotherapy and Oncology Department at the National Hospital Abuja for two years, he moved to the United States to pursue a more complete understanding of health, medicine and human life. During his time in America, Dr. Ajibade has acquired certifications in several fields of study, including the treatment of brain disorders, the addressing of inflammation as it pertains to overall health and wellness, and naturopathic medicine. He has devoted the last 20 years of his life to studying how the human mind and body work, with a focus on understanding how to optimize both their longevity, and performance.
He has also had a keen interest in identifying and studying some of the best researched and most critically acclaimed discoveries in medical science, especially in the fields of brain function, immune and endocrine health, and cancer. During this time, and to this day, he continues to collaborate with an array of experts in the fields of immune function, brain disorders and cardiovascular disease, while carrying on his work with organizations that focus on best practices to educate the general public and healthcare professionals.
Dr. David Ajibade is a military veteran, an “Ex-Boy” of the prestigious Nigerian Military School, a former cadet at the Nigerian Defense Academy (41RC), and a soldier in the Nigerian Military before graduating from medical school. He has seen the mental, emotional, and physical toll being in the military has had on his friends and former. For him, it is a personal, as much as professional mission, to work with and help these individuals reduce the emotional pain and burdens they live with, often for a lifetime.
In addition to his medical license, Dr. Ajibade has numerous certifications from the following internationally recognized institutions:
1. Oral Roberts University – Masters, Nonprofit Management
2. World-Wide Naturopathic Health Service – accredited Principal Consulting Physician for
the Federal Republic of Nigeria
3. Kennedy Krieger Institute/Johns Hopkins University (Autism Research)
4. Walsh Research Institute (Advanced Nutrient Therapy)
5. Irlen Institute (Issues of Special Needs Children)
6. Center for Bioethics Research (Biomedical Research on Human Subjects)
7. Inflammation Research Foundation (Anti-Inflammatory Nutrition)
8. Alzheimer’s Association Certified Health Educator
In addition to hosting an award-winning TV show that is Africa’s most watched program on health, Dr. Ajibade has engaged in hundreds of interviews and speaking engagements over the past 15 years that deal with memory and the brain. This history provides him with the experience and knowledge base that is required to educate millions of Americans, including individuals and healthcare professionals alike, on the state of dementia in the black community.
Dr. Ajibade has realized numerous professional achievements, including the following:
1. 2021 Impact Africa Summit Awards – Best TV Health Show.
2. 2023 Listed in Marquis Who’s Who in America.
Dr. Ajibade is a skilled clinician and physician with a keen interest in reducing complexities into basic principles that can be applied to the treatment of brain disorders. He is also a skilled communicator, and currently hosts the number one TV health show in Africa, Your Health in Your Hands, which airs weekly on Africa’s largest television network. As far back as he can remember, Dr. Ajibade has been passionate about three things:
Learning how the brain and body work.
Discovering the keys to enhancing their ability to function on an optimal level and heal from illness; and
Sharing what he learns with others.
Of all racial groups, African Americans have the highest risk of dementia (twice as high as whites in the USA; four times as high in the UK). Relatively little is being done to highlight this fact, and even less is being done to educate the black community on the subject.
Dr. Ajibade’s knowledge and experience positions him to be the voice of dementia and the Black community. His ability to engage with, explain, offer and demonstrate practical solutions to this demographic can help reduce the risk of contracting Alzheimer’s dementia or a related disease, while actually improving brain health. To date, we are not aware of any medical doctors or health practitioners who are black and who are actively involved in educating the black community on dementia and what can be done about it. We know of nobody who is actively out in the field, promoting brain health for and among African Americans. By using local, regional, and national speaking platforms, coupled with various digital and media platforms, we can reach tens of millions in the black community to get the word out about these brain-related diseases, and hopefully reduce our significant risk of developing these conditions.
