You CAN do something to protect your patients' brains from Alzheimer's Disease!
Big pharma and mainstream medicine have nothing to offer patients with Alzheimer's Disease. The failure rate for drug trials is 99.6% and some companies have given up on research into new therapies. The "Amyloid Hypothesis" has seen reductions in neurotoxic proteins, but has failed to provide patients with meaningful improvement. Dr. Dale Bredesen and many others have shown that Alzheimer's is a complex array of at least 36 different issues that can't be solved by a monotherapy.
Prevent or Reverse Alzheimer's with Lifestyle Factors
Research over the past decade has shown that multiple lifestyle factors used in concert can prevent Alzheimer's, including in patients with a genetic predisposition to the disease. These lifestyle factors have even been used to reverse moderate to severe cognitive decline in some patients. Many of the lifestyle changes can be accomplished by the patient at low or no cost, which translates into limited financial incentives for clinical research.
These factors include:
Reducing Patient Overwhelm
Although information about lifestyle changes is available online, sorting through it can be overwhelming for patients. I've boiled down the 36 lifestyle factors to 12 Action Steps to get started toward a HEALTHY BRAIN for the long-term. I've used easy-to-understand language and tried to avoid medical jargon, so anyone can follow the action steps.
This program can offer hope to patients that may not find it elsewhere. The action steps require commitment and perseverance in the face of life circumstances that might conspire against them. But patients who take those action steps will be very likely to see improvement in their cognitive function, slow the disease, and even return to activities they may have lost to the disease.
You may be familiar with my Simple Hormones patient education programs. A diagnosis of Alzheimer's in my immediate family and my homozygous status for the ApoE4 gene have led me to add preventive brain health to my hormone optimization programs.
Over the past few years, I've discovered an explosion of research from multiple healthcare practitioners and researchers including Dr. Dale Bredesen, Dr. Ann Hathaway, Dr. Ken Sharlin, Dr. Jason Fung, Dr. David Perlmutter, Nutritionist Amy Berger, and many others. I've learned that genetics are not our destiny and that targeted lifestyle changes provide hope for people with elevated genetic risks. My goal is to provide patient education about Alzheimer's prevention so we can all protect our cognitive abilities for as long as possible.
