A groundbreaking plan to prevent and reverse Alzheimer's Disease that fundamentally changes how we understand cognitive decline.

Everyone knows someone who has survived cancer, but until now no one knows anyone who has survived Alzheimer's Disease.

In this paradigm shifting book, Dale Bredesen, MD, offers real hope to anyone looking to prevent and even reverse Alzheimer's Disease and cognitive decline. Revealing that AD is not one condition, as it is currently treated, but three, The End of Alzheimer's outlines 36 metabolic factors (micronutrients, hormone levels, sleep) that can trigger "downsizing" in the brain. The protocol shows us how to rebalance these factors using lifestyle modifications like taking B12, eliminating gluten, or improving oral hygiene.

The results are impressive. Of the first ten patients on the protocol, nine displayed significant improvement with 3-6 months; since then the protocol has yielded similar results with hundreds more. Now, The End of Alzheimer's brings new hope to a broad audience of patients, caregivers, physicians, and treatment centers with a fascinating look inside the science and a complete step-by-step plan that fundamentally changes how we treat and even think about AD.

The author, UCLA medical research faculty and founding CEO of the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, claims in this clearly-written summary of decades of research that Alzheimer's Disease may in fact be beatable in some cases. Bredensen's research suggests that AD is not a brain failure, but rather a hyper-over-reaction to toxins, lack of nutrients, and inflammation. Thus, he has developed an approach to treatment which involves up to 36 facets of one's overall health, an approach that is not treatment by a single drug but rather a personalized *set* of treatments in the areas of diet and nutrition, physical activity, stress reduction and sleep hygene. The resulting protocols are holistic, and multi-modal, comparable to Ayurvedic or traditional Chinese medicine (even involving meditation). And the radical news is that he claims hundreds of success stories preventing, or even reversing, cognitive decline.
I for one sincerely and deeply hope he is right!
