  • Memory loss isn’t always the first sign of dementia
  • Changes in behavior may predict mental decline
  • Proposed checklist may offer earlier detection of Alzheimer’s

If you tend to experience “senior moments” every now and then, you may be worried that it’s a sign of impending dementia or Alzheimer’s. But a brief memory lapse, like wondering where you put down your keys or forgetting an appointment, is a far cry from dementia.

In reality, the first sign of problems to come might not show up as memory problems at all. Instead, they could rear their ugly head in the way of behavioral changes.

This was a big topic at the recent Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in Toronto. And it may give doctors like me – along with family members – a better way to detect dementia risk earlier than otherwise. Continue reading

In last issue, I introduced you to Dr. Bredesen’s MEND protocol.

It’s a personalized program that deals with much more than the brain. That’s because everything going on in your body affects your brain chemistry. This includes the foods you eat, the way your genes are expressed and even the condition of your mitochondria. Continue reading

  • Reverse Alzheimer’s and boost brain volume

  • Dementia-busting tips you can put to use immediately

Today, there is no medical cure for Alzheimer’s disease. So the true story I’m about to tell you brings a great deal of promise to anyone hoping to revitalize their brainpower.

You see, a 66-year old man with well documented early Alzheimer’s disease and mild cognitive impairment signed up for a very unique program.

When he started, the volume of his hippocampus (which is critical in consolidating daily information from short term memory to long term) was smaller than 83% of men his age. He also had reduced glucose utilization, which is indicative of Alzheimer’s. Additionally, he carried the APOE4 gene variant, which placed him at greater risk for the disease. Continue reading
