Publisher's Summary

A groundbreaking plan to prevent and reverse Alzheimer's disease that fundamentally changes how we understand cognitive decline.
Everyone knows someone who has survived cancer, but until now no one knows anyone who has survived Alzheimer's disease.
In this paradigm shifting book, Dale Bredesen, MD, offers real hope to anyone looking to prevent and even reverse Alzheimer's disease and cognitive decline. Revealing that AD is not one condition, as it is currently treated, but three, The End of Alzheimer's outlines 36 metabolic factors (micronutrients, hormone levels, sleep) that can trigger "downsizing" in the brain. The protocol shows us how to rebalance these factors using lifestyle modifications like taking B12, eliminating gluten, or improving oral hygiene.
The results are impressive. Of the first 10 patients on the protocol, nine displayed significant improvement with three to six months; since then the protocol has yielded similar results with hundreds more. Now, The End of Alzheimer's brings new hope to a broad audience of patients, caregivers, physicians, and treatment centers with a fascinating look inside the science and a complete step-by-step plan that fundamentally changes how we treat and even think about AD.

Both exciting and frustrating

In The End of Alzheimer's, Dr. Bredesen describes the multi-step therapy he has developed for each of the several types of AD, which has slowed or even reversed AD in patients. Since I'm fairly knowledgeable on this subject, I found the research credible and exciting! However, if you're looking for a single pill or a quick fix or something that won't require any change or effort on your part, you'll be disappointed. AD is a multi-faceted and complex disease. It's likely there will never be just one medication that will conquer it. Dr. Bredesen shares his frustration that our current drug approval system is focused on monotherapies, with no flexibility for multi-part therapies. Doctors 'don't do nutrition' was another source of frustration. I'm glad that Dr. Bresdesen is getting the word out about "Recode," (Reverse Cognitive Decline) which is what he calls his therapy. If you're serious about trying this, you'll need an open-minded doctor and/or naturopath, a hard cover copy of the book so you can check your blood work results against Dr. Bredesen's recommended levels, and a willingness to change your diet, take supplements, and start exercising. This is ground-breaking research that will unfortunately probably be largely ignored by our current medical system. So read it yourself and be your own advocate!

Should Have A PDF

I found this book to be pretty technical. Listening to neurochemistry and later having long web addresses read to me was not very useful I listen because I'm doing something else physically- I can't always stop and write something down.

I suppose I was also looking for more of a how-to manual, and many times the book warns us that each situation is different. Maybe that's realistic, maybe they are 'covering their behinds' - but it was a long book with a multitude of suggestions and I'm left quite unsure if I should make any changes. [i already do many of the dietary, sleep, exercise and toxin avoidance strategies suggested.]

The author suggests quite a number of tests and I wouldn't have more than a glimmer of insight into the next steps to take when I had those test results.

I suppose I'm either too far gone in cerebral damage or perhaps the book is written for a different audience- functional physicians, perhaps? It made clear to me that I would need to hire someone with more knowledge than I have to oversee it if I wanted to implement this program.

Maybe having a PDF would have helped . . .
