Publisher's Summary

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 10 patients on the protocol, nine displayed significant improvement with three to six 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.

    "Should Have A PDF"

    I found this book to be pretty technical. Listening to neurochemistry and later having long web addresses read to me was not very useful I listen because I'm doing something else physically- I can't always stop and write something down.

    I suppose I was also looking for more of a how-to manual, and many times the book warns us that each situation is different. Maybe that's realistic, maybe they are 'covering their behinds' - but it was a long book with a multitude of suggestions and I'm left quite unsure if I should make any changes. [i already do many of the dietary, sleep, exercise and toxin avoidance strategies suggested.]

    The author suggests quite a number of tests and I wouldn't have more than a glimmer of insight into the next steps to take when I had those test results.

    I suppose I'm either too far gone in cerebral damage or perhaps the book is written for a different audience- functional physicians, perhaps? It made clear to me that I would need to hire someone with more knowledge than I have to oversee it if I wanted to implement this program.

    Maybe having a PDF would have helped . . .

    "Both exciting and frustrating"

    In The End of Alzheimer's, Dr. Bredesen describes the multi-step therapy he has developed for each of the several types of AD, which has slowed or even reversed AD in patients. Since I'm fairly knowledgeable on this subject, I found the research credible and exciting! However, if you're looking for a single pill or a quick fix or something that won't require any change or effort on your part, you'll be disappointed. AD is a multi-faceted and complex disease. It's likely there will never be just one medication that will conquer it. Dr. Bredesen shares his frustration that our current drug approval system is focused on monotherapies, with no flexibility for multi-part therapies. Doctors 'don't do nutrition' was another source of frustration. I'm glad that Dr. Bresdesen is getting the word out about "Recode," (Reverse Cognitive Decline) which is what he calls his therapy. If you're serious about trying this, you'll need an open-minded doctor and/or naturopath, a hard cover copy of the book so you can check your blood work results against Dr. Bredesen's recommended levels, and a willingness to change your diet, take supplements, and start exercising. This is ground-breaking research that will unfortunately probably be largely ignored by our current medical system. So read it yourself and be your own advocate!

    "Hope"

    My mom has Alzheimer's for 11 years now. My siblings and I have never considered being tested for the gene because what would be the point with no cure or even treatment that can be offered if you do get Alzheimer's. After listening to this book and with a bit more research of my own I feel I probably will get my DNA tested as this book offers hope. It seems like a big lifestyle change but after seeing mom"s decline into being mentally disabled the lifestyle change is no doubt worth it. The book is a bit complex to listen to just a lot of specifics I need to actually see in writing to use as a reference so I ordered the book version as well.

    "Unparalleled Information!"

    Dr. Bredesen's protocol should be started when you first misplace your keys in your 40's! This is like a medical bible of our toxic times and everyone needs this information now...do not wait. Yes, a few mispronounced words by Cashman but that's expected with any book having physiology in it. Very clear reading and listening to it.

    "world altering if it is true"

    notebook stands to change the world more from a medical standpoint than this one. Although the target audience must be clinical providers since the science presented is incredibly lofty for the average person. Still, the information here is invaluable for those of us at risk and taking care of family members with Alzheimer's disease. A must-read for everyone.

    "If you have a brain, read this book!"
    What did you love best about The End of Alzheimer's?

    My headline is not sarcastic. Truly, if you have a brain (and you do) you absolutely need to read this book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The End of Alzheimer's?

    Realizing that what a number of other authors (Gundry, Perlmutter, etc.) say about diet, has tremendous overlap with the protocol outlined in this book to diminish Alzheimers.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    While the author has a good voice, and reads quite well in general, for some reason he has trouble pronouncing the final "s" on many words. Sometimes he drops a whole syllable, typically when it has say, 2 consonants with an "s" attached. Not the end of the world, but annoying.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Hearing about people who were in the clutches of dementia and who recovered their faculties.


    Any additional comments?

    Just a really fascinating, useful, and profoundly important book.

    "Informative, but rather boring"

    This is read poorly, but written well. It's just heavy on the medical and difficult to slog through. The Appendix (luckily) is concise and helps us make protective lifestyle choices.

    It's an encouraging treatise for those of us afraid of becoming ill with Dementia, giving the illusion of control. Whether it is truth, we don't yet know.

    "Depressing"
    What would have made The End of Alzheimer's better?

    I didn't listen to this book precisely because it started out by covering all the bad things that happen with dementias. The reader may be very good but he has a deep voice and the text was so down and ugly that I decided I could not stand to listen. I cannot understand why such a book doesn't start out with possible remedies and would go light on the description of horrid details of decline. There is really no excuse for dwelling on what has already been said in the popular media by many experts and others without expertise. I'm returning this book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dale Bredesen again?

    I have no idea at the moment.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Marc Cashman’s performances?

    Yes.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was awful. The tiny part I listened to.
