Dr. David Perlmutter on The Empowering Neurologist interviews Dr. Dale Bredesen on his new book which outlines the ground-breaking research and protocol which was first presented in his first book, The End of Alzheimers. The new book is The End of Alzheimer’s Program: The First Protocol to Enhance Cognition and Reverse Decline at Any Age.
Since the release of his first book, results of trials using the protocol are coming in and the program is being recognized as a rebuttal to the standard of care that claims there is NO treatment for Alzheimer’s and in fact, some of the pharmaceutical offerings even accelerate the progression of the disease. But there is so much more. Dr. Bredesen’s protocol is now being used for not only Alzheimer’s but a significant number of other neurologically degenerative diagnoses including Lewy Body Dementia, Parkinson’s, Frontal Temporal, etc. The secret, of course, is addressing the root causes (hooray Functional Medicine) of which there are many possibilities. I implore everyone to listen to this podcast, even if podcasts are not on your menu!
The newest addition to the Apollo Health site is going to be the preCODE (prevention of cognitive decline) program which anyone age 45 and up without signs of cognitive decline and most especially those with a family history of dementia, should investigate and implement. The program will be offered within a month.
And in case you think none of this applies to you, anyone with a history of insulin resistance or pre-diabetes, diabetes, metabolic complications like high blood pressure, or autoimmune conditions should pay particular attention. Apparently these conditions affect more than 80% of our country!
