A report by San Francisco’s KPIX CBS station shows how The Bredesen Protocol helps reverse the cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Heather Norris, diagnosed with Alzheimer’s dementia, now feels like she has her life back due to Dr. Bredesen’s customized program. Testing revealed Heather had hormonal imbalances, elevated blood sugar, and very high levels of molds and toxins.

It’s not surprising that two big pharmaceutical companies would recently throw in the towel on testing their highly-touted Alzheimer’s drugs. The silver bullet approach doesn’t work for multi-factored chronic diseases like Alzheimer’s. Instead, the silver buckshot approach is needed to combat the 36 or more causes of Alzheimer’s. While JAMA, the Journal of the American Medical Association, warns against the “pseudo-medicine” of Alzheimer’s supplements, 21st Century Functional Medicine doctors are seeing reversals of cognitive decline. These doctors are getting to the root causes of chronic diseases such as Alzheimer’s and addressing those causes. Newly published...

Whitney English, on an episode of The Sitch, chats with Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Amylee Amos of the Amos Institute, about implementing The Bredesen Protocol – a type of “Alzheimer’s diet” aimed at slowing and reversing cognitive decline. Amylee shares her advice for optimizing brain health through diet, exercise, and other lifestyle interventions such as brain training. She also discusses her thoughts on supplementation for Alzheimer’s patients including fish oil and CoQ10. Amylee also explains the genetic risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease such as APOE 4 status and how a mildly ketogenic, plant-based diet may stave off cognitive decline. Skip...
At the early age of 49, Julie was experiencing the symptoms of cognitive decline. Genetic testing revealed she is ApoE4 homozygote, meaning she carries two copies of the ApoE4 gene, increasing her chance of developing Alzheimer’s by 50-90%. Through much research on her own, she began to implement dietary and lifestyle changes such as eating only organic food, adding supplements, cutting out toxins, exercising regularly, getting plenty of sleep, and doing brain training exercises. The result – her cognition began to improve! This was before she was able to see Dr. Perlmutter and eventually Dr. Bredesen for the proper testing and treatment. You can read more about...

Alzheimer's disease is a state of the brain in which there is an imbalance between the reorganization of synapses that have outlived their usefulness (and which the brain can stand to lose - healthy destruction) and the maintenance or creation of existing and new synapses (which the brain needs to sustain old memories and form new ones, as well as perform other cognitive functions). That imbalance comes from too many of the synapse- and neuron-destroying quartet of molecules snipped from APP and too few of the synapse- and neuron-sustaining duo of molecules snipped from APP.
