Product Description

The instant New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller

A groundbreaking plan to prevent and reverse Alzheimer’s Disease that fundamentally changes how we understand cognitive decline.

 
Everyone knows someone who has survived cancer, but until now no one knows anyone who has survived Alzheimer''s Disease. 
 
In this paradigm shifting book, Dale Bredesen, MD, offers real hope to anyone looking to prevent and even reverse Alzheimer''s Disease and cognitive decline.  Revealing that AD is not one condition, as it is currently treated, but three, The End of Alzheimer’s outlines 36 metabolic factors (micronutrients, hormone levels, sleep) that can trigger "downsizing" in the brain. The protocol shows us how to rebalance these factors using lifestyle modifications like taking B12, eliminating gluten, or improving oral hygiene.
 
The results are impressive. Of the first ten patients on the protocol, nine displayed significant improvement with 3-6 months; since then the protocol has yielded similar results with hundreds more. Now, The End of Alzheimer’s brings new hope to a broad audience of patients, caregivers, physicians, and treatment centers with a fascinating look inside the science and a complete step-by-step plan that fundamentally changes how we treat and even think about AD.

Review

"Alzheimer’s is a disease for which there is no cure. Dr. Bredesen’s experimental program gives me hope that there are actions we can all take to care for our brains and keep Alzheimer’s at bay." 
—Maria Shriver, Today Show
 
" The End of Alzheimer’s is a monumental work. Dr. Bredesen completely recontextualizes this devastating condition away from a mysterious and unsolvable process to one that is both preventable and, yes, reversible. Pinning our hopes on pharmaceutical research to develop a miraculous wonder drug has left both physicians and patients empty handed. But now, this comprehensive approach offers solid results, bringing hope to so many."
David Perlmutter, MD, Board-certified neurologist and author, #1 New York Times bestseller, Grain Brain, and Brain Maker

" The End of Alzheimer''s, for the first time, synthesizes the latest science into a practical plan that can reverse Alzheimer''s and dramatically improve brain health and function. If you have a brain, read this book."
—Mark Hyman, MD, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Eat Fat, Get Thin

"This book represents a major turning point in our approach to Alzheimer’s disease, from viewing it as a mysterious and incurable affliction that is governed almost exclusively by our genes, to understanding it as a multifactorial condition that can be prevented and even reversed largely through nutrition and lifestyle change. For the first time ever, patients and families affected by Alzheimer’s—as well as those at high risk for this devastating disease—truly have a reason to be hopeful."
—Chris Kresser, M.S., L.Ac Founder, Kresser Institute for Functional & Evolutionary Medicine, Author of the New York Times best seller The Paleo Cure
 
" The End of Alzheimer’s is a masterful, authoritative, and ultimately hopeful patient guide to functional medicine for your brain. It will help you prevent and reverse Alzheimer’s disease, whether you have the ApoE4 gene or not. My patients fear Alzheimer’s more than any other diagnosis. This is the book to transmute fear into action."
—Sara Gottfried, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Younger

"Having spent several years implementing many of Dr. Bredesen''s insights in my patients, I can assure you that following his advice can save yourself, your loved ones, and your friends from suffering from this preventable and reversible curse."
—Steven Gundry, MD, author of the New York Times bestseller The Plant Paradox

"Dr. Dale Bredesen is a world class neuroscientist/neurologist who through his innovative and exacting research has discovered a safe and effective approach to the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer''s disease that will revolutionize the way we think about the disease."
—Jeffrey Bland, PhD, FACN, FACB; President, Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Institute
 
" The End of Alzheimer''s offers a new beginning in Medicine — changing the focus from a singular disease to recognizing the systems-based approach required to care for the whole person. Dr. Bredesen translates the knowledge of science to the wisdom that helps to heal our people . . . and provide a vision for the end of Alzheimers!"
—Patrick Hanaway, MD, Founding Medical Director, Director of Research, Center for Functional Medicine, Cleveland Clinic
 
"In this engaging, heartfelt, and insightful book, Dr. Bredesen elucidates a bold new approach to Alzheimer''s, rooted in decades of his own pioneering research.  A must read for anyone wondering what can be done for this dread disease, whether for themselves, a loved one, or a patient. "
—Nathan Price, PhD, Professor & Associate Director of the Institute for Systems Biology

Meet Kristin .
 
Kristin was suicidal. Years before, she had watched in despair as her mother’s mind slipped away, forcing her to enter a nursing home after she could no longer recognize family members, let alone care for herself. Kristin had suffered along with her mother, who at the age of 62 had begun an 18‑year decline into Alzheimer’s disease. And at the end Kristin had suffered alone, for her mother was no longer sentient.
 
When Kristin was 65, she began to experience her own cognitive problems. She got lost when driving on the freeway, unable to remember where to get off and on, even on familiar routes. She could no longer analyze data critical to her job, or organize and prepare reports in a timely fashion. Unable to remember numbers, she had to write down even four digits, not to mention phone numbers. She had trouble remembering what she had read, and by the time she reached the bottom of a page had to start at the top again. Reluctantly, Kristin prepared her resignation. She began to make mistakes more and more frequently, often calling her pets by the wrong names and having to search to find the light switches in her own home, even though she had flipped them on and off for years.
 
Like many people, Kristin tried to ignore these symptoms. But they got worse and worse. After two years of unremitting cognitive decline, she consulted her physician, who told her she was becoming demented just as her mother had, and there was nothing he could do for her. He wrote “memory problems” on her chart, and because of that, she was unable to obtain long-term care insurance. She underwent retinal scanning, which revealed the Alzheimer’s-associated amyloid. She thought about the horror of watching her mother decline, about how she would live with progressive dementia and no long-term care, about the lack of treatment. She decided to commit suicide.
 
She called her best friend, Barbara, explaining, “I watched what my mother went through as she slipped away, and there is no way I will allow that to happen to me.” Barbara was horrified to hear Kristin’s saga. But unlike when other friends had fallen victim to dementia, this time Barbara had an idea. She told Kristin about new research she had heard about, and suggested that rather than ending her life, Kristin travel several thousand miles to the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, just north of San Francisco. In 2012, Kristin came to see me.
 
We talked for hours. I could offer her no guarantee, no example of any patient who had used the protocol—nothing more than diagrams, theory, and data from transgenic mice. In reality, Barbara had been premature in sending her to the Institute. And to make matters worse, the protocol I had developed had just been turned down for its first proposed clinical trial. The review board felt that it was “too complicated,” and pointed out that such trials are meant to test only a single drug or intervention, not an entire program (ah, if only diseases were that simple!). So all I could do was to go over the various parts of the protocol and recommend that she take these to her physician back home, asking him if he would work with her. She did that, and so began what has become the ReCODE protocol.
 
Three months later, Kristin called me at home on a Saturday to say she could not believe the changes in her mental abilities. She was able to work full-time again, to drive without getting lost, and to remember phone numbers without difficulty. She was feeling better than she had in years. When I put the phone down, what rushed into my mind were the decades of research, the countless hours at the whiteboard with lab members and colleagues, the arguments with myself about each detail of the theory and treatment approach. All of this had not been in vain; it had pointed us in the right direction. Of course Kristin was only one person—as they say, an “n of one”— and we needed to see similar results in thousands and ultimately in millions. I thought back to the doctor who told his patient, “You are just an anecdote; you are not statistically significant.” To which his patient replied, “Well, my family says that I am significant. Besides, I’m healthy once again, so I don’t care about statistics.” Indeed. Every fundamental change needs to start somewhere—every successful approach must start with Patient Zero—and Kristin was Patient Zero.

My husband and I were very excited over this book when I bought it over a year ago. Once I got into the book, I soon realized how complicated everything was so I sought help from a facility (they do not take insurance) where the physician was trained in the Bredesen Protocol. We were very excited to start the process. Over the past 16 months, we have paid literally thousands of dollars to the facility for the physician, nurse, nutritionist, and herb specialist. You can bet that their rates continued to rise over the course of the year, too. We paid several hundred dollars on specialized urine and blood tests. We paid out more than $2000 on specialized nasal sprays alone. We spent thousands on all the numerous supplements. It did nothing for my husband who has mild AD which is still progressing slowly. For us, it has been very stressful for trying to implement an extremely complicated and expensive protocol for well over a year and stressful watching the money being bled out of our checking account. So much so that my husband has quit the process. We gave it our best shot trying to strictly adhere to everything that was recommended. I am not saying that it won''t work for others, but this has been our experience and something I wanted to share with others to consider.

This book does not contain accurate information about the number of people who have participated in the protocol, supervised by a trained doctor and the outcome rates. We paid 30k be part of the official immersion training program and have spent thousands more implementing the protocol. We have not had success and none of the other patients we are in touch with have either. We are not getting any answers. I fear this is more about making money than sharing a scientific discovery. Buyer beware! This has been a bitter disappointment.

My mother, and roommate, has frontal lobe dementia and, they believe, Alzheimers. Watching her decline has been heart wrenching, and I''m constantly trying to find ways to make her life better. I worry not only about Mom, but about myself. I believe that I am on the same path.

I first heard of the Bredesen Protocal last winter, when Maria Shriver discussed it on the Today Show. I quickly researched it as much as possible, but info was limited. I had a feeling a book was forthcoming, so I anxiously awaited it''s release. I was worried The End of Alzheimer''s would contain too much technical information that I might not be able to understand. I was very happy to see that it was written in a casual format that intentionally makes it easier for the rest of us. The details are clear, the tone is casual, and it''s easy to follow.

As I read through this book, I was surprised by how many points were familiar to me. That''s me! I do that! Oh heck! It was as enlightening as it was scary. Living with Mom, I also live in fear because I know I''m on the same path she struggles down every day. That''s my future.

On page 97, Bredesen says "How to give yourself Alzheimer''s. Live your life in a way that keeps your brain supplied with as many as possible of the 36 factors that influence whether APP gets cut into the destructive quartet or the beneficial duo. How to prevent it. Live your life in a way that minimizes the number of the 36 inducing factors in your brain." Those 36 factors are clearly laid out and I believe they are not difficult to control.

Several years ago, I struggled with brain fog and often had difficulty remembering numbers for even a couple of minutes. I also was overweight and had heart problems. I reached a point where I thought I would die, so I wrote my will and made plans for my dogs after I was gone. Then I said enough was enough, and I dramatically changed my lifestyle. I cut out processed foods, ate lots and LOTS of vegetables and fresh fruits, especially leafy greens and berries. I ate wild caught fish, but no other animal products. My diet was low in grains. I used the USDA Super Tracker to make sure that my diet exceeded the RDA for every nutrient they tracked. There''s a lot more to it, but I was eating all the time and I exercised every single day. Within a few weeks, I had much more energy. Within a few months, my brain was on FIRE! But then...

I started a new job and everything about my lifestyle and schedule changed. Long story short, I fell back into old habits, abandoned my perfect diet and exercise program, and gradually regained weight. I also started losing clarity and life became more difficult. I recognize that. And I know that I alone can change that.

I''m so very glad to have read the Bredesen Protocol because I know now, more than ever, the importance of getting back on track. I am making a serious effort to change my future. I believe this book can help. I have already marked my calendar and plan to follow up on this review in 3 months and again in six months. Mom may be too far along, I don''t know, but it''s worth trying for both of us. Dr. Bredesen states in the book that his protocol may not work for frontal lobe and other types of dementias. It has only been tested on Alzheimers. I feel that it''s still very important to heed his advice, as Alzheimers often doesn''t get a definite diagnosis until after death.

As an editor for a major health site I was able to carefully read the End of Alzheimer’s long before its publication date. I read about 200 books a year and this was clearly one of the top three I have read this year. Dr. Bredeson is a rare physician that has escaped the confines of conventional medicine and explored strategies that really do radically reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s and improve those that already have the condition. In my view he is the leading Alzheimer’s expert in the world today and I am grateful he has taken the time out of his busy career to present information that can radically change the course of Alzheimer’s.

Why is this an important issue? Because we have a tsunami of Alzheimer’s disease approaching on and it is on track to take the lives of 45 million of the 325 million Americans alive today. It’s currently the third leading cause of death in the US and is costing the United States over $220 billion annually. It is a trillion-dollar global health problem. It was the sixth leading cause of death

Dr. Bredesen is uniquely qualified to write this book as he has spent most of his three decades as a physician in this field and was trained at Cal Tech and Johns Hopkins. He is the director of Neurodegenerative Disease Research at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) School of Medicine, He has identified a number of molecular mechanisms at work in this disease, and has created a novel program to treat and reverse it that he calls ReCODE (Reversal of Cognitive Decline)

Many are concerned about this disease and have had themselves tested for the genetic risk factor Apolipoprotein E epsilon 4 (ApoE4). An estimated 75 million Americans have the single allele for ApoE4. Those who are ApoE4 positive have a 30 percent lifetime risk of developing the disease. Approximately 7 million have two copies of the gene, which puts them at a 50 percent lifetime risk.

One of the highlights of the book is his strategy of how to actually reverse ApoE4 damage. This can be done by simply implementing intermittent fasting and restricting your eating window to 4-8 hours a day. This is because ApoE4 appears to be a gene that all ancient humans had and it provided an metabolic advantage for those that were regularly going without food and fasting for periods as was common in ancient times. Individuals that had this gene would actually live longer as they could more easily switch between fat and carb burning. This knowledge can help you actually reverse the damage that most of us acquire when we inherit this gene by merely implementing intermittent fasting.

His ReCode program discussed three dozen different tests that one can screen for and if they are abnormal they can be addressed to improve the synaptic balance to a more healthy level and reverse or radically reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s. If you ever had any concern about Alzheimer’s there is no question in my mind that this is the book to get. Strongly recommended.

My wife was diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment while a member of the Kaiser network. They did a few diagnostic tests, got a MOCA score on my wife of 19, got her driver''s license revoked, and essentially said, "this is a terrible disease, there is nothing to be done for it, good luck".

None of the Bredesen Protocol is part of the Kaiser program, and the physicians we spoke with did not even know what a functional medicine physician is, but did not think that Kaiser had one.

Fortunately, we were able to qualify for a Bredesen Immersion program with Dr. Bredesen and a team he assembled of trained functional medicine physicians in March 2017. Subsequently, we are " all in" with the Bredesen protocol. It is not a diet, bit a complete lifestyle change. My wife'' s symptoms have not progressed and in many areas have improved, just since April 2017. Yes, the program is challenging and has some expense associated with it, but compared to what? An Alzheimer''s unit in a nursing home, not to mention the emotional toll on everyone - does this seem like an easier and cheaper alternative to anyone?

This book and the ReCode protocol offers something that cannot be measured, real hope. I urge you to read the book and take the protocol seriously, it can change you and your loved ones lives.

I so wish I could give this book a 5 star rating as a testimony of success in the reversal of Alzheimer''s Disease. However, sadly I have to give only a one star. This review comes from a spouse of a diagnosed Alzheimer''s patient who has been closely and precisely following the Bredesen Protocol for almost a year without positive results. The theoretical aspect of the book is excellent (hence the one star) and clearly Dr. Bredesen has defined the different aspects of this awful disease very well. What I have found this book is lacking is the practical aspects/treatment of how to move forward and correctly prioritize treatment once the patient is diagnosed with specific underlying issues which can be very very complicated to uncover.
This protocol I believe will most likely work for the mildly cognitively impaired patient. However, most moderate to severe Alzheimer''s diagnosed patients have many many underlying immune system issues and diseases (such as Mold, Lyme, Mercury Poisoning etc...etc...) which all have to be dealt with PRIOR to bombarding the body with tons of supplements, which can potentially worsen the situation (as I have found out after the fact). I do believe a Ketogenic Diet and Exercise Program is a healthy way to go through life and my family has been following this for a few years already.
What I find is that Dr. Bredesen''s claim to REVERSE Alzheimer''s is arrogant, bold and irresponsible and is preying on the vulnerability of those affected by this terrible disease. As previously stated, after precisely following the Bredesen Protocol for nearly a year including following the "recode" recommendations for supplements, ketogenic diet with intermittent fasting as well as daily exercise etc...I firmly believe that this alone will NOT REVERSE cognitive decline unless the various areas of sensitivities and allergic reactions that can contribute to Alzheimer''s Disease and are unique to each patient are addressed first. This is what was frustrating in the case of my spouse.
At this point, and after much time, effort and independent research as well as some trial and error which has cost us a fortune,we have finally found competent healthcare practitioners who have studied and received their certification in each of the specific underlying causes of dementia and Alzheimer''s Disease (such as Mold, Lyme, Mercury Poisoning etc...). Upon these practitioners advice, and after "muscle testing" these supplements one by one, my husband has either stopped or modified taking most supplements due to toxic overload and is now undergoing treatment for the underlying causes and sensitivities of what could be the causes of the cognitive decline. We are cautiously optimistic at this time.
I do not want to minimize Dr. Bredesen''s work for the mildly cognitively impaired. However, again for the moderate to severe Alzheimer''s patient it is of the utmost importance that before starting the Bredesen Protocol (specifically the supplement portion of the protocol), that these underlying issues must be addressed because the protocol CAN make the patient worse or not help at all. Although Dr. Bredesen is very bold in making the statements of reversing Alzheimer''s Disease, I do find him to be knowledgeable about these underlying issues. What is needed is a step by step protocol addressing HOW to get to the root of all these potential underlying issues as well as a double blind study with the proper number of participants and the proper published statistics in order to substantiate the claim of "reversing" Alzheimer''s Disease.
Basically, we are all hoping and wishing it could be as simple as treating an Alzheimer''s patient with Diet, Exercise and massive Supplements etc...but I have experienced that it goes far deeper than addressing Dr. Bredesen''s outlined components without knowing how to "successfully" treat the underlying issues. Many health care professionals claim that they know how to treat these underlying issues and will be most happy to take an exorbitant amount of money for services that render little to no results. BEWARE!!!!!!!

I''m giving 5 stars both for the book, which is an awesome starting point, as well as for Dr. Bredesen''s work, leading up to the discoveries this book is based on, and since these discoveries, his efforts to train practitioners so we can help patients apply this protocol.

I wrote a lengthy review of the book on my blog - at Unconventional Medicine dot net.

The gist of it is this:
1. This is not rocket science, it''s about being systematic and tenacious.
2. A very few people become demented because of an identifiable deficiency - many more people are slowly losing memory/concentration/attention because of many "insufficiencies" - this is why conventional medicine has not figured out how to treat this illness
3. I am concerned that encouraging people to do the testing and treatment themselves will lead to unnecessary expense and frustration, but I admit that I have an inherent bias because I am a functional medicine practitioner with training in the Bredesen protocol. Some of us practitioners can offer access to cheap sources of testing though, so I''m really not sure you can save money in the end by using Direct Labs or Request A Test.

For people who can''t afford this protocol, even though it''s cheaper than assisted living:
We must form groups of people who can do the protocol stepwise, who support each other and who save on the services of a shared practitioner (who won''t have to repeat explanations several times). Groups of people could even have ketogenic potlucks! It would be fun.

Best of luck everyone out there struggling with this illness - I''m very excited we now have more to offer you!

A family member was suffering terribly from dementia, even to the point of a complete "hard drive wipeout" a few months ago. (He did not recognize family members, had facts all jumbled up, didn''t remember that he had a house or where it was, etc.).
Doctors had been telling him to move out of his home, into assisted living, give up driving, etc -- just give up all hope and wait to die (while drugged up like a zombie on Aricept, Namenda, and anti-psychotics). Devastating and soul crushing.
I had just seen an interview about this book, so I ordered it and read it as fast as I could and began to implement the author''s recommendations. We addressed his poor diet (now it''s homemade organic foods), added *many* of the supplements discussed, relieved the stress of bills/paperwork, simplified the home environment, and increased family support (lots more visiting).
HE HAS HIS MIND AND HIS LIFE BACK!!! No more nervous, obsessive, repetitive, exasperating behaviors. No more scary confusion or terror episodes, thank God. (Still can''t remember what he ate for breakfast an hour ago, hah, but we can live with that.) He feels good, can think clearly, thinks to check on other people, can remember to pick up the neighbor''s mail when they go on vacation and remember when they''re expected home, is starting to take walks in the park again and enjoy his great grandson, etc.
My utmost THANK YOU to Dr Bredesen. This is outstanding!

You won''t hear about Bredesden''s work in reversing Alzheimer''s on the six o''clock news because mainstream medicine still expects one drug to fix a condition which has up to 36 separate contributory causes. By attending to each individual''s requirements relating to these causes, Bredesden was able to reverse their cognitive decline allowing them to return to their former lives. While the numbers involved were small, the treatment protocols offer hope not only for reversing but for preventing it happening in the first place. In spite of millions of pounds of research funding, drugs to combat dementia have been an expensive failure probably because the disease is multifactorial and while there are common features, the factors in each case may differ. The most important finding by Dr Bredesden is that the amyloid plaque which builds up in the brain of sufferers and has been thought of as the cause of Alzheimer''s, much as high cholesterol has been thought of as the cause of heart disease and stroke, is not the cause but a protective response by the body to pathogens which may include bacteria, moulds, viruses and which give rise to chronic inflammation. While genetics have a role, your genetic inheritance is not a life sentence as genes may be switched on or remain dormant depending on the dietary and lifestyle choices available to you.

Dr Bredesen is way ahead of the curve and this book is a big beacon of light in a dark, often negative, hopeless landscape of dementia and worse, Alzheimer''s specifically. It''s also well written and I found it such an informative, inspiring and enjoyable (despite the topic) read. Highly recommended!!! A must buy.

I think in years to come people will look back on this book as pivotal in turning the tide against Alzheimer''s. As well as documenting practical approaches to reversing Alzheimer''s (and in so doing give hope to the millions who are already afflicted or who are genetically predisposed to the disease) Dr Bredesen explains how underlying physiological pathways converge to increase the risk of getting the disease. Dr Bredesen intersperses his narrative with testimonials of patients who have successfully reversed this truly awful soul-destroying disease. It is evident that Dr Bredesen has faced huge obstacles in extending the reach of his programme to reverse Alzheimer''s however he has been resolute in his determination to conduct further trials and to spread the message of hope that his programme, ReCODE offers to many millions of sufferers and their loved ones. I remain convinced that Dr Bredesen''s 21st Century ''programmatic'' medical approach will ultimately gain world-wide acceptance not just for Alzheimer''s but for other modern chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. I''d like to say thank you to Dr Bredesen and his team for their research over the past three decades because for people like me who face the horrific prospect of Alzheimer''s I now have hope and a means to avoid it and live a healthier lifestyle as I age.

The early part of the book is like an endless trailer, all it''s coming, it''s coming, soon you''ll know the cure for alzheimers, just keep reading (which made me cynical instantly) and then pow it''s you need to change your diet and the way you live (you Americans). The trouble is that none of this is new, I''ve read at least 2 books already telling me this and they both managed to do it without the feeling that I am having a finger wagged in my face as I am talked down to by somebody of ''superior'' intelligence. There''s nothing wrong with the information in the book, it''s just the way it''s delivered. There are more reader friendly books than this if you want to learn about the importance of diet (and exercise et al) in keeping your brain young. Although the information is correct I have no qualms about warning others away from it''s haughty tone as this is Amazon UK and the author obviously thinks the world begins and ends in America - so he will never read this.

Superb read, essential reading for carers, those wanting to take control of their own health and apply preventative strategies. This is the way forward, lets hope people get their heads around it and stop "researching" for the elusive single pill approach to solve all. This is brilliantly written and easy to understand. A fantastic resource.
