Time to forget Alzheimer's

My father, uncle and grandmother all died from Alzheimer’s. A horrible disease that strips a person of their very essence, and leaves families fighting to remember the people they love. Unfortunately we all know someone who has suffered from Alzheimer’s; my family’s story is just one of millions…

Alzheimer’s continues to grow and places enormous emotional and financial burden on society. The statistics are grim. Alzheimer is the most frequent cause of age-related dementia, with over 50 million people affected globally, and it is predicted to grow 3-fold to more than 160 million in the next 30 years. Dementia not only devastates lives, but cost an estimated £26 billion a year in the UK, and globally more than $817bn. It is expected to more than double in the next 20 years.

There have been over 240 clinical trials researching drugs for Alzheimer’s but there has been very little success in helping slow its progression, let alone finding a cure. We are told there is nothing we can do to prevent or reverse Alzheimer’s; but is this true?

There is a novel therapeutic approach developed by Professor Dale Bredesen, a neuroscientist who has researched dementia and Alzheimer’s within the medical and scientific community for over 30 years. Amazingly, his protocol has reversed Alzheimer’s in more than 90% of his 1,000 patients. So why have most people never heard of Bredesen’s anti-Alzheimer’s protocol?

According to Bredesen, “Alzheimer’s is wholly preventable and modifiable through nutrition and lifestyle factors up until the late stages of the disease.” And he has hundreds of case studies to back up his claims. One is a 62-year-old woman who had cognitive decline, fatigue, poor sleep, and depression. She had lost the ability to remember names, do the accounting she had done previously, and run her business. After 12 months on the protocol she was able again to remember names and reopen her business, and her improvement has been sustained.

Like most diseases, Bredesen explains that Alzheimer’s takes decades to develop due to poor diet and lifestyle choices. Eating too much sugar and refined carbs, not enough essential fats, exposure to ongoing toxins (pesticides, heavy metals, plastics), leading a sedentary lifestyle, experiencing too much stress and not enough sleep can create cognitive decline.

Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease staring with mild memory issues, which indicate the beginning of nerve degeneration, followed by 3 years of non-specific symptoms before there is a diagnosis. After this people deteriorate quickly, and within 3 to 6 years most people are in nursing homes.

Simple steps to help prevent and reverse cognitive decline

  1. Balance your blood sugar. Too much sugar can lead to inflammation. Eating fruits and vegetables low in sugar and eliminating/ reducing processed foods and refined carbs is vital.
  2. Feed your brain. Include foods with essential fats that help your brain, like avocados, salmon, mackerel, raw almonds, walnuts, organic eggs, extra virgin olive oil and raw coconut oil.
  3. Supplement wisely. Even with a fantastic diet there is a need to supplement as people can be deficient in vitamins and minerals for decades prior to showing symptoms. Alzheimer progression has been linked to deficiencies in vitamin A, B6, B12, D, folate and omega-3.
  4. Feed your gut with beneficial bacteria. Inflammation is directly affected by good gut bacteria, and can determine your brain’s health. Eat probiotics rich foods such as organic kefir and sauerkraut. 
  5. Detox from mercury and other heavy metals. Heavy metals can be found in fish (particularly tuna and swordfish), food and cookware, vaccinations and fillings. They can cause brain fog and fatigue and may require a supervised detox program.
  6. Get 8 hours high-quality sleep every night. Research studies demonstrate poor sleep is a major risk factor for cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s.
  7. Manage stress. Stress negatively effects your body and brain. Deep breathing, meditation, yoga, or even a 30-minute walk daily can reduce stress and prevent cognitive decline.
  8. Get the right support. Everyone is biochemically unique and getting to the root cause of any disease is critical. Programmes based on Professor Bredesen’s findings can see cognition improvements within 4 to 12 weeks.
