Cognitive Decline: A New Perspective 

Cognitive decline is a major concern of the aging population, with approximately 5.4 million American patients. 

At least early in the course, cognitive decline may be driven in large part by metabolic processes (energy production and maintenance processes in the body). 

In the case of Alzheimer’s disease, there is not a single therapeutic (pharmaceutical drug, etc.) that exerts anything beyond a marginal, unsustained symptomatic effect, with little or no effect on disease progression. 

Yes, the strategies in Dr. Bredesen’s book and study linked above show great promise:

  • Nine of the 10 displayed subjective or objective improvement in cognition beginning within 3-6 months, with the one failure being a patient with very late stage AD.
  • Six of the patients who had to discontinue working because of their decline, were all able to return to work with improved performance.
  • Improvements have been sustained, and at this time the longest patient follow-up is 2.5 years from initial treatment, with sustained and marked improvement. 

Dr. Bredesen detailed his basic therapeutic program:

  • Elimination of all simple carbohydrates
  • Elimination of all gluten
  • Elimination of all processed foods
  • Increased vegetables, fruits, and non farmed fish
  • Stress reduction; yoga and meditation 20 minutes twice per day
  • Increasing sleep from 4-5 hours per night to 7-8 hours per night
  • Not eating for a minimum of 3 hours between dinner and bedtime
  • Exercising for a minimum of 30 minutes, 4-6 days per week
  • Chelating heavy metals, especially Hg (mercury), Pb (lead), Cd (cadmium)
  • Meat consumption limited to non-farmed, grass fed beef or organic chicken
  • Supplementing with: melatonin, B12, Vitamin D3, Fish Oil, and CoQ10
