The End of Alzheimer's: The First Programme to Prevent and Reverse the Cognitive Decline of Dementia
|Author:||Dale E. Bredesen|
The first proven plan to reverse Alzheimer's Disease. In The End of Alzheimer's Dr Dale Bredesen offers real hope to anyone looking to prevent and even reverse Alzheimer's Disease and the cognitive decline of dementia. Revealing that AD is not one condition but in fact three, he outlines 36 metabolic factors, including micronutrients, hormone levels and sleep, which together can trigger downsizing in the brain. Dr Bredesen then outlines a proven, step-by-step protocol to rebalance these factors, which patients can follow with the help of a healthcare professional (note: blood tests are required in order to tailor individual plans). There are also general lifestyle and dietary changes all readers can adopt to improve cognitive health. It rewrites the science of Alzheimer's Disease. Proven step-by-step advice to follow with your doctor. It offers real hope to patients, carers and health professionals. It is the first major breakthrough to stop Alzheimer's in its tracks. Survival rates in many life-threatening conditions, such as cancer, have been steadily improving for years. But until now nobody had ever survived Alzheimer's Disease. The results, however, of Dr Bredesen's protocol are impressive: of the first ten patients on the protocol, nine displayed significant improvement within three to six months; since then the protocol has yielded similar results with hundreds more. Dr Bredesen is also focusing on training UK healthcare professionals in his protocol with a further 200 professionals set to receive training this coming spring.
"The End of Alzheimer's is a phenomenal book. Dr Dale Bredesen's research is some of the most exciting work that I have seen in years and tackles the most important health issue of our time. It helps us understand this complex and devastating condition but is also the roadmap to prevent it in the first place. By tackling arguably the most important disease of our age, Dr Dale Bredesen is actually changing the way we look at all chronic disease. This is a masterpiece and a must-read book." * Dr Rangan Chatterjee * "The End of Alzheimer's is a monumental work. Dr Bredesen completely recontextualizes this devastating condition away from a mysterious and unsolvable process to one that is both preventable and, yes, reversible." * David Perlmutter, MD, author, #1 New York Times best seller, Grain Brain, and Brain Maker * "The End of Alzheimer's is a masterful, authoritative, and ultimately hopeful patient guide that will help you prevent and reverse Alzheimer's disease, whether you have the ApoE4 gene or not. My patients fear Alzheimer's more than any other diagnosis. This is the book to transmute fear into action." * Sara Gottfried, MD, author of the New York Times best seller Younger * "Dr Dale Bredesen is a world-class neuroscientist/neurologist who through his innovative and exacting research has discovered a safe and effective approach to the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer's disease that will revolutionize the way we think about the disease." * Jeffrey Bland, PhD, Founder of the Institute for Functional Medicine * "Dr Bredesen has provided enormous hope for the heretofore intractable clinical problem of Alzheimer's. Bredesen's early studies suggest that this approach can halt and in many cases reverse early Alzheimer's." * Leroy Hood, MD, PhD, Winner of the National Medal of Science from President Barack Obama, and Founder, Institute for Systems Biology *
