Alzheimer's disease is a medical condition, which slowly weakens a person's mental abilities, often over a period of years. It generally results in a total loss of a sense of oneself as well as the ability to perform even basic acts of day-to-day living.
The mainstream view of the medical establishment is that there is no way to stop or reverse the disease or its symptoms.
Dale E. Bredesen, M.D. is a well regarded physician and researcher studying the mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease.
He recently wrote the book, The End of Alzheimer's, in which he describes a number of protocols designed to improve cognition and reverse the cognitive loss of early Alzheimer's disease. This goes against the mainstream view of the medical establishment.
I recommend this book to anyone who cares about someone afflicted by this horrible condition. I also recommend it to people who do not have any symptoms of the condition but which to address the underlying cause of Alzheimer's before it manifests itself.
Two friends' spouses have just been diagnosed with either dementia or Alzheimer's. Very sad and a great stress on the spouse or caretaker.
My point is that Dr. Bredsen's writing and related medical practice offers a possible remedy or cure for your friends and their spouses.
