Alzheimer’s
– Several things probably come to mind when thinking about this terrible disease – memory loss, confusion, and no hope.  Many have struggled with the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s.  Friends and family can feel helpless so they turn to large organizations with support groups.  But these groups only provide support and fellowship, and at the end of the day your loved one’s condition still hasn’t improved.

So what if there was a treatment that actually works?  After all, we are in the 21st Century.  We’ve gone to the moon for crying out loud!  We’ve found treatments for Cancer.  So what about Alzheimer’s?

Here’s the good news everyone on this earth needs to know.  There is a treatment for Alzheimer’s and dementia that has been successful for several years and continues to be successful!

The person to thank for this treatment program is Dr. Dale E. Bredesen.  His book, “The End of Alzheimer’sThe First Program to Prevent and Reverse Cognitive Decline,” was published in August 2017.

After three decades of research as a neurologist and neuroscientist, Dr. Bredesen discovered there are 36 or more contributing factors for Alzheimer’s disease.  These can be categorized in three main areas:  inflammation, suboptimal nutrient and/or hormonal levels, and toxins.

Think of a roof with 36 holes.  The more holes you can patch, the less damage to the inside of your house.  The same is true with your brain.  Once enough of the network components have been optimized, your cognitive decline will halt and begin to reverse.  Sometimes this can happen in a matter of months!

So, what’s different about The Bredesen Protocol?  What makes it successful?
With this program, the doctor won’t be treating you blindly. You won’t be given a one-size-fits-all treatment.  From your evaluation and testing results, you and your doctor will know specifically what has caused your Alzheimer’s.  With the help of your doctor, you will follow a customized treatment program to halt and reverse your cognitive decline by combating what has caused your Alzheimer’s or dementia.

How do I get started?
A Bredesen trained physician or health care practitioner will help you get the proper lab work, cognitive assessment, genetic testing, and brain MRI, if needed.  Information is available on this website (ALZsurvivor.com) to help you get connected with a Bredesen trained medical professional.

What’s next?
You will receive your customized treatment program to follow.  It will address any threats indicated through testing.  Your program will also focus largely on diet, fasting, exercise, sleep, stress reduction, and other lifestyle factorsThis part of your program will have a greater impact than you might imagine.

The goal isn’t just to get those factors under control and within normal limits.  The goal is to optimize your specific levels, giving you the best chance of halting and reversing your cognitive decline.

Patients with the most success are the ones who strictly  follow their individualized program.  If necessary, find a family member, friend or even a health coach who would be willing to keep you on task.

Remember, this is not a quick fix or cure.  Those who temporarily slip off the program notice a decline in their thought processes.

Finally, this is a treatment program and a lifestyle which must be maintained – but is so worth it!

Glossary

ALZ
abbreviation for Alzheimer’s Disease
Alzheimer’s Disease
a type of dementia and a progressive disease of the brain that slowly causes impairment in memory and cognitive function. Alzheimer’s disease happens when the brain tries to protect itself from three metabolic and toxic threats:


1 - Inflammation (from infection, diet or other causes)
2 - Decline and shortage of supportive nutrients, hormones and other brain-supporting molecules
3 - Toxic substances such as metals or biotoxins (poisons produced by microbes such as molds)

The protective response causes APP (Amyloid Precursor Protein, the long molecule that protrudes from neurons) to be cut into four fragments, including amyloid-beta, that downsize the neural network and eventually destroy synapses and neurons. When the APP molecule is cut into those four pieces, it is not cut into the two pieces that nourish and maintain synapses.

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.

ApoE4
abbreviation for apolipoprotein E, a gene variant (allele) which is a protein that carries lipids – i.e. fats. Carrying one ApoE4 (inherited from one parent) increases your lifetime risk of Alzheimer’s to 30 percent. Carrying two copies (from both parents) increases it to 50 to 90 percent. That compares to a risk of only about 9 percent in those who carry zero copies of this allele.
APP
abbreviation for Amyloid Precursor Protein, the long molecule that protrudes from neurons

CognoscopyTM
metabolic and genetic testing that identifies cognitive decline or what may be putting you at risk for it
Dementia
umbrella term for a group of symptoms (a syndrome) without a definitive diagnosis. Dementia is a group of symptoms that affect mental cognitive tasks such as memory and reasoning. (Alzheimer’s Disease is the most common type of dementia.)
Early Alzheimer’s Disease
an early onset of Alzheimer’s Disease and uncommon form of dementia that typically affects those under the age of 65
Functional Medicine
a systems biology–based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease
Heterozygous
carrying 1 copy of the ApoE4 genetic variant
Homozygous
carrying 2 copies of the ApoE4 genetic variant
Integrative Medicine
healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person, including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapies.
Ketoflex 12/3
anti-Alzheimer’s diet to include at least 12 hours of fasting, with the first 3 hours of that fast starting after dinner. It is largely plant based, but flexible as it does allow for small amounts of meat or fish.
MCI
Mild Cognitive Impairment
MCT oil
an abbreviation for medium chain triglyceride (a saturated fat) which is found in coconut oil.  Alzheimer's impairs the brain's ability to use sugar.  An MCT ketogenic diet offers an alternative energy source:  ketones.  This allows brain cells to survive better, blocking a receptor in the brain that causes memory loss.
SCI
Subjective Cognitive Impairment – a precursor to MCI (Mild Cognitive Impairment)
The Bredesen ProtocolTM
treatment program developed by Dr. Dale E. Bredesen to prevent and reverse cognitive decline (also known as The ReCODE ProtocolTM)
The ReCODE ProtocolTM
treatment program developed by Dr. Dale E. Bredesen to prevent and reverse cognitive decline (also known as The Bredesen ProtocolTM)
The ReCODE Report
computer generated report as a result of metabolic and genetic testing (CognoscopyTM)
The ReVERSE Program
customized  treatment program to reverse cognitive decline. This program starts with a ReCODE Report (a computer generated report as a result of metabolic and genetic testing called a CognoscopyTM)
