Since it was first described more than 100 years ago Alzheimer’s disease has been without an effective treatment. Is this about to change?
By Alzheimer's Reading Room
- In the first, small study of a novel, personalized and comprehensive program to reverse memory loss, nine of 10 participants, displayed subjective or objective improvement in their memories beginning within 3-to-6 months after the program’s start.
- Of the six patients who had to discontinue working or were struggling with their jobs at the time they joined the study, all were able to return to work or continue working with improved performance.
- Improvements have been sustained, and as of this writing the longest patient follow-up is two and one-half years from initial treatment.
- These first ten included patients with memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s disease (AD), amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI), or subjective cognitive impairment (SCI; when a patient reports cognitive problems). One patient, diagnosed with late stage Alzheimer’s, did not improve.
- is the first to suggest that memory loss in patients may be reversed, and improvement sustained, using a complex, 36-point therapeutic program that involves comprehensive changes in diet, brain stimulation, exercise, optimization of sleep, specific pharmaceuticals and vitamins, and multiple additional steps that affect brain chemistry.
