The diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease is a devastating one. The prospect of being robbed of our memories, or of losing a loved one to memory loss is terrifying to everyone. But one doctor has developed a program that he says presents the possibility of reversing cognitive decline.
In his new book, The End of Alzheimer’s, neurologist Dr. Dale Bredesen explains a program he has developed that he claims will to prevent and even reverse cognitive decline.
In the introduction to his interview with Dr. Oz, a 70-year old math savant, disguised in blurred lens for fear of the stigma of Alzheimer’s, spoke about Dr. Bredesen’s program:
“The math has come back,” he said. “That’s a real, measurable thing. I mean I am fast with math again.”
In another testimonial, a 55-year old attorney who was having issues remembering recent conversations with her family spoke about Dr, Bredesen’s treatment:
“I was out with my husband,” she said, “and we were having a conversation, and I remembered names before he did, and that had not happened in years.”
In his book, Dr. Bredesen talks about the exact time Alzheimer’s patients should eat, to the meal plan that best serves to engage the disease.
Dr. Bredesen says that the traditionally believed cause of Alzheimer’s, amyloid in the brain, is actually a protective response to other existing afflictions. These “insults” include chronic inflammation and a loss of hormones and nutrients – or growth factors in the brain.
