Alzheimer's reversed! [VIDEO] Non-drug treatment for patients memory loss
by Toshiba Reynolds

The disease Alzheimer's has been officially recognized for over a hundred years, yet an effective treatment for it still eludes us. But researchers at UCLA say they have developed a program that indicates for the first time that memory loss can be reversed.

It isn't a drug; nor a procedure; it is a novel, comprehensive and personal approach to treating memory loss associated with Alzheimer's.
The study was conducted by the UCLA Mary S. Easton Center for Alzheimer’s Disease and Research and the Buck Institute for Research on Aging.

Researchers discovered that nine out of 10 study participants displayed subjective or objective improvement in their memories beginning within three-to-six months after the program began.

The results were so significant that six patients who were struggling at work or had stopped working entirely because of cognitive problems associated with Alzheimer’s disease were able to return to their jobs or demonstrated improved performance at their jobs.

The team used a 36-point program which included changes to diet, increased brain stimulation, optimal sleep, more exercise, particular medications, and specific daily supplements.

* Eliminating all simple carbohydrates and gluten
* Eliminating processed food
* Eating more vegetables and fruits
* Eating wild-caught fish
* Meditating twice a day
* Starting yoga
* Increasing sleep to between seven and eight hours each night
* Daily supplementation of coenzyme Q10, fish oil, melatonin, methylcobalamin, and vitamin D3
* Improving oral hygiene by introducing an electric flossing tool and an electric toothbrush
* Reinstating hormone replacement therapy as needed
* Fasting for a minimum of 12 hours between dinner and breakfast
* Not eating at least three hours before bedtime
* Exercising for at least 30 minutes, up to six days each week

"The current, anecdotal results require a larger trial, not only to confirm or refute the results reported here, but also to address key questions raised, such as the degree of improvement that can be achieved routinely, how late in the course of cognitive decline reversal can be effected, whether such an approach may be effective in patients with familial Alzheimer’s disease, and last, how long improvement can be sustained," said Dale Bredesen, Augustus Rose Professor of Neurology, Director of the Easton Center at UCLA, professor at Buck Institute, and author of the paper. The study has been published in the online edition of Aging.
