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.

Controlling Your Genes with Epigenetics —The Future of Alzheimer’s Research

These are special times for us humans. After learning and growing and evolving for over five million years, our species has, just in the past few years, arrived at a momentous milestone: we have achieved the power to manipulate our own genes. The recent discovery of epigenetics has enabled us to make conscious lifestyle choices …

Testing for Alzheimer’s Biomarkers

Biomarker testing pinpoints the root metabolic imbalances that undermine harmonic brain function and cause Alzheimer’s disease. To reverse cognitive decline, these metabolic errors must be restored to normal. Abnormal biomarkers provide a road map for prevention and cure. In this article I will show you which markers to use and how to interpret them. And …

Neurogenesis, BDNF, and Exercise​

BDNF invigorates nerve cells in three ways. First, it stimulates neurogenesis, the growth of new nerve cells from your own stem cells. Second, it enhances neuroplasticity—your nervous system’s ability to reorganize your nerve pathways. Last, but definitely not least, it amplifies synaptoplasticity—making new synaptic interconnections between neurons by encouraging them to grow new tendrils that …

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. In this book I have included only those with strong research support. At the top of the list lies low-dose lithium, a “magical mineral” that not only reverses Alzheimer’s but has been shown to increase BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor), stimulate neurogenesis, heal …

The Anti-Alzheimer’s Diet

Suboptimal nutrition damages the molecular systems in your brain and causes Alzheimer’s disease. I’ll explain which foods are damaging and which heal the brain. 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 …

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 …
