I just watched an interview with the author of The End of Alzheimer's, Dale Bredesen. This fills me with so much hope. Not because I have experience cognitive decline, but because this is another of the BIG scary diseases that rips your life from you that has a solution. It is the same feeling I had when I have watched documentaries or read articles about real solutions to the diseases that most people fear. Whether it is cancer or Alzheimer’s, disease is preventable and curable in most cases. I know there is a small percentage that are genetic predispositions, but even those genetic expressions can be suppressed or turned “off” in many cases.
It is high time to think about how far we have come in the area of lifestyle and nutritional science. There is good news out there people! Dr. Bredesen’s protocol even helps people with Alzheimer’s. The problem is that it is not a pill. It is a lifestyle change. It is detoxing, healing the gut, reducing the chronic inflammation and a few other things that are doable! In fact, living like this will bring energy and vitality to your life that you will love! It’s not just Alzheimer’s, it is cancer, diabetes, metabolic diseases, cardio vascular disease and the list goes on. There is great news of real hope, even after you receive a dreaded diagnosis.
Dr. Bredesen admitted that the medical industry doesn’t like his solution. Why? It is a multifaceted approach for a multifaceted disease. There is no pill. Nothing to make money on. No magic bullet. In fact, even his research has not been well received because it isn’t a double blind medicine study. The fact is, and so many MD’s agree, that doctors are not trained in nutrition science, let along nutrition. Those that are educated have gone after it themselves. There are plenty of those doctors out there.
In this age of information, the facts are out there for you to attain. I know there is a lot of confusing information which leads to people giving up trying to decipher the truth and then blindly trusting their doctor. Folks, there is such good stuff out there! Go after it and learn. I just heard Dr. Valter Longo talk about aging and a type of fasting that is producing wonderful results for people with or without disease. It is out there. There is so much hope.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
