The author, UCLA medical research faculty and founding CEO of the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, claims in this clearly-written summary of decades of research that Alzheimer's Disease may in fact be beatable in some cases. Bredensen's research suggests that AD is not a brain failure, but rather a hyper-over-reaction to toxins, lack of nutrients, and inflammation. Thus, he has developed an approach to treatment which involves up to 36 facets of one's overall health, an approach that is not treatment by a single drug but rather a personalized *set* of treatments in the areas of diet and nutrition, physical activity, stress reduction and sleep hygene. The resulting protocols are holistic, and multi-modal, comparable to Ayurvedic or traditional Chinese medicine (even involving meditation). And the radical news is that he claims hundreds of success stories preventing, or even reversing, cognitive decline.
I for one sincerely and deeply hope he is right!
