Can Memory Loss Be Reversed?
It is well known that the risk to develop Memory loss or Alzheimer’s disease as well as Cancer can be influenced by nutrition.The results of two human trials in 2015 revealed relatively easy methods to protect cognitive function into our advanced years. (1)
Diet and Dementia
Even modest dietary changes can slash Alzheimer’s risk by ca. 35% when a healthy diet is consistently followed.
Is that the “healthy” diet promoted by most nutritionists? Yes and no.
Diet is a powerful factor that affects our thinking abilities and feelings in young and old age.
The Rush University studied over 900 participants, ages 58-98 years, and followed them on average for 41/2 years. (2)
They noted that one of the 3 evaluated diets, the so-called MIND diet, benefited the thinking abilities of the participants the most.
The MIND Diet
Elements of the MIND diet are 15 dietary components shown to powerfully impact neurological function for the good or bad.
Classic instructions like eat more vegetables of multiple kinds and colors and reduce brain-damaging foods like pastries and sweets etc. are part of this diet.
In one small UCLA Study using a complex protocol (3) of diet and lifestyle modification and supplementation, led to reversal of memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s disease in Nine out of the 10 people in this study. Obviously, this is a very small, preliminary study, but it shows how powerful change can be.
Dale Bredesen went on to write a powerful book: “The End of Alzheimer’s”. We help you to implement and benefit from his lifestyle change protocol!
Do you want change for yourself and/or a loved one?
