Alzheimer's Disease is a neurodegenerative disease where brain cells progressively die over time.
Alzheimer's is the most common type of dementia in the United State.
Alzheimer's accounts for 60-80 percent of cases of dementia in the United States. In 2013, 6.8 million people were diagnosed with dementia. Five million of those were diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Until recently, most treatment for the disease were considered ineffective.
Dale Bredesen, M.D. is a neuroscientist-neurologist, has developed a new treatment protocol called ReCODE. This treatment is showing promising results in the fight against this debilitating disease. His book, The End of Alzheimer's, reveals that Alzheimer's is actually several conditions, not just one. He addresses lifestyle changes that dramatically affect cognitive function. By adjusting factors like diet, stress, sleep quality, exercise and hormones, Dr. Bredelson's program is giving new hope to patients with Alzheimer's.
