About Reversing Alzheimer’s Disease

Reversing Alzheimer’s offers information on the causes of Alzheimer’s, your gut’s microbiome, testing for Alzheimer’s biomarkers, controlling your genes with epigentics, and so much more. Below are a few excerpts from the book about many of these subjects. Any chapter noted in an excerpt indicates where you can find more information about the subject.

Why I Take Berberine Every Day

I just learned that the bright golden-orange color in the California poppies that burst forth around our ranch every spring comes from berberine, an herbal powerhouse that has the potential to block cognitive decline and slam the door on Alzheimer’s disease. Berberine’s medicinal properties date back to the Shennong Ben Cao Jing, a Chinese book

Testing for Alzheimer’s Biomarkers

Biomarker testing identifies the unique combination of biochemical malfunctions that are causing memory loss in you or a loved one. These are standard tests that can be done at any medical laboratory. Using the test results, you can generate a treatment program that addresses each causative factor. In Reversing Alzheimer’s I reveal which lab tests

Exercise, Neurogenesis, and BDNF

Physical activity (like your morning walk or run) generates BDNF (brain-derived neurotropic factor), a powerful neurohormone that stimulates the growth of new neurons in your cerebral cortex. BDNF not only grows new brain cells but also enhances memory, improves IQ, and reverses cognitive impairment. BDNF invigorates nerve cells in three ways. First, it stimulates neurogenesis,

Your Gut Microbiome

The microbes living on and within us (mostly within our GI tracts) comprise a complex and dynamic community that has different genomes from ours and is thus truly foreign. More than ninety-nine percent of the total DNA we use comes not from our own cells, but from bacterial genes living in our gut microbiome. These

Reversing Alzheimer’s with Supplements

Several specific nutritional medicines have been shown to prevent and reverse cognitive decline. At the top of the list is low-dose lithium, a “magical mineral” that not only reverses Alzheimer’s but also has been shown to increase BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor), stimulate neurogenesis, heal traumatic brain injury, and reverse cerebral atrophy. Anyone who wants to

The Anti-Alzheimer’s Diet

Suboptimal nutrition damages the molecular systems in your brain and causes Alzheimer’s disease. An anti-dementia diet is based on foods shown by research to reverse neurodegenerative disease. Optimum nutrition is necessary for neuroplasticity, neurogenesis, and brain repair. Every bite counts because every food choice directly affects your brain’s chemical structure and function. Following are the

About Reversing Alzheimer’s

My mother’s death from Alzheimer’s twenty years ago was the inspiration for this book. Since then our scientific understanding of how the brain works has experienced an exponential growth spurt. We have discovered that Alzheimer’s disease is caused by multiple systemic disruptions of healthy biochemical reactions. These disruptions can be easily identified with standard laboratory
