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. - Rewrites the science of Alzheimer's Disease - Proven step-by-step advice to follow with your doctor - Offers real hope to patients, carers and health professionals - 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.
It has been called `the plague of the 21st century' for its dramatic increase in numbers and the challenge it poses to health care. There are no effective treatments, merely a few drugs that promise only short-lived results. For centuries, those afflicted by Alzheimer's disease have been robbed of their memories and ability to think clearly; while families have watched their loved ones disappear day by day. In The End of Memory, award-winning author Jay Ingram charts the history of the disease, explaining the fascinating science behind it, recounting the efforts to understand and combat it, and introduces us to the passionate researchers who are working to find a cure. This is an important book for the millions of people around the world who are affected by Alzheimer's, as well as those who are intrigued by both the ageing process and the brain, and wish to understand them better.
Betty Martin's remarkable journal helped her focus on the day to day struggles as she cared for her husband, Roland, who suffered from Alzheimer's for over ten years. She watched her husband of 54 years, who was her soul mate, her first sweetheart, transition from a highly respected businessman and loving father to a helpless child who depended on her for his most basic needs. Ride the unpredictable, emotional roller coaster of this cruel disease as Betty describes the daily ups and downs with Roland. Experience those unexpected highs as she hears his heartfelt laughter, excitement, and gratitude as if he were experiencing things for the first time. Watch a man whose life revolved around the success of his business, transition to a man whose love of his family and nature become his priority. This was the time that Roland had most likely surrendered to a sense of peace in his heart while his mind was surrendering to Alzheimer's. The notion that life goes on in spite of our deepest and most demanding emotional challenges will ring true for all who have, like Betty, taken the journey with no end.
The End of Alzheimer's: The Brain and Beyond, Second Edition is the first comprehensive overview on the molecular basis of Alzheimer's outside of the brain, merging the most recent findings within the field into a single book. It aims to educate the reader on the many overlooked aspects of Alzheimer's disease that occur outside the brain. This book uniquely provides step-by-step, peer-reviewed evidence that the current research model may be misguided and that a new and emerging model is more accurate. It carefully outlines the molecular research in Alzheimer's outside the brain and argues that a more thorough, whole-body diagnosis will provide better answers about its causes and lead to new treatments. It is beneficial to researchers who need to be apprised of the emerging science on the causes of Alzheimer's, and will hopefully redirect many into new avenues of cellular research and discovery.
