Dr. Dale Bredesen is one of the leading experts on Alzheimer’s disease. His first book, The End of Alzheimer’s, was groundbreaking and on the New York Times Bestseller list. I spoke with him today about his new book which was just released this week, The End of Alzheimer’s Program, The First Protocol to Enhance Cognition and Reverse Decline At Any Age. Dr. Bredesen and his team have studied this disease, which is now the 3rd leading cause of death in this country, for years and have researched the brain and Alzheimer’s extensively. What if Alzheimer’s disease is actually a protective response to a wide variety of insults to the brain, including inflammation, insulin resistance, toxins, infections, inadequate levels of nutrients, hormones and growth factors. He shares the importance of figuring out which of these insults needs to be addressed and gives us information on a personal lifestyle plan to not only prevent this disease but to also reverse it.
Dr. Bredesen shares some of the potential contributors to Alzheimer’s:
- Insulin resistance
- Nutrition, hormones and tropic factors
- Pathogens like herpes, spirochetes, babesia
- Immunosuppressants like viruses, mold, bacteria, parasites
- Exposure toxins like mercury and mycotoxins (mold-producing toxins)
He outlined the 6 types of Alzheimer’s disease and shares what you need to know about early detection. Dr. Bredensen also talked about the KetoFLEX 12/3 diet and offers suggestions on what to eat and how fasting a minimum of 12 hours between meals can be beneficial for your brain. The KetoFLEX 12/3 plan is fully outlined in The End of Alzheimer’s Program. We discussed oral health and how it is critical for brain health. He offers targeted supplementation, exercise and brain training as a way to keep the brain healthy.
There is so much information in this book to assist you to enhance cognition. His practical suggestions could be life changing for many and for some the end of Alzheimer’s. Dr. Bredesen feels that at some point, as we learn more about this disease and take appropriate steps to prevent it, it could be eradicated much like Polio was many years ago. Now, that is exciting!
