What Are the Most Promising Approaches to Curing Alzheimer’s?

As many of you know I previously wrote an article on dementia, but in light of some new information, I
thought it was time to write a sort of follow-up.

Alzheimer’s is one of the most dreaded and feared diseases worldwide. Affecting millions of people already, that number is expected to triple by 2050. At this point no really effective mainstream medical treatment exists, of course.

The current medications are ineffective in stopping the progress or eliminating this devastating and invasive disease.

However there are now a few glimmers of hope on the horizon. Firstly, since we are after all a health and wellness blog, putting the accent heavily on natural remedies, I will focus on the key factors linked to neurodegenerative disease. From there I will go into some lifestyle changes and other programs said to work.

The Best Ways to Prevent or Reverse Cognitive Decline Due to Aging

Dr. Dale Bredeson, who is a recognized neuroscientist and neurologist, has developed a program to help the brain to protect itself from metabolic and toxic threats which include inflammation and a shortage of supportive nutrients, hormones, and brain supporting molecules. He claims that reducing or even eliminating these threats will reduce the chances of developing Alzheimer’s.

Dr. Bredeson’s main goal is to reverse cognitive decline and the following list of supplements to achieve that end are on the top of his list: Be warned that the list is extensive but if they work…

Turmeric, Vitamin B12 and Garlic are also helpful.

Oxygen and Nutrients

Bredeson concludes that a good diet, the above supplements, and avoidance of toxins will be more effective than any current prescription medication. Oh, and hope that a breakthrough will be achieved very soon.

Another excellent explanation of, or reason for, Alzheimer’s developing is understandable and logical;
The brain needs oxygen and nutrients, which are delivered via blood flow. When that flow is being hindered in any way, the brain begins to perform inefficiently. It also causes the production of sticky
protein substances throughout the brain which leads to mental decline.

Proper breathing techniques are one way of assuring that the brain receives the right amount of oxygen. Otherwise the telltale dizziness, forgetfulness, loss of balance, and confusion will begin to creep up. The Brain Booster by Christian Goodman explains this in more depth.

Focused Ultrasound Therapy

A new kid on the block is being touted as a breakthrough, and is in final stages of study and trials at Sunnybrook Health Sciences in Toronto, Canada, as well as additional studies in the US and other countries.

Called Focused Ultrasound Therapy, it is an early stage, noninvasive, therapeutic technology showing great potential to improve the quality of life for Alzheimer’s sufferers. It focuses beams of ultrasonic energy precisely and accurately on targets deep in the brain and does not damage normal tissue.

One result is the temporary opening of the blood-brain barrier, which will remove beta amyloid or tau from the brain. Focused ultrasound will hopefully enhance the delivery of therapeutic drugs or antibodies to the brain. This would reduce the number of plaques, improving cognition.

There are several important advantages to focused ultrasound therapy. It involves no incisions, holes drilled in the skull, electrodes in the brain, reducing the risk of infection and/or blood clots. The precise targeting assures no damage to healthy brain tissues.

Focused ultrasound therapy is not new to medicine. It is currently being used to treat other neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson’s disease. However this new procedure is somewhat different. Suffice it to say that this new therapy opens up a whole new opportunity for the defeat of Alzheimer’s and it is merely one of the numerous avenues scientists are exploring for the same purpose.

PET Scan for Alzheimer’s Diagnosis

New and improved ways to diagnose Alzheimer’s are being studied as well. Currently the main diagnostic method is a PET scan (positron emission tomography). This measures the amounts of amyloid deposits in the brain. Unfortunately this is expensive, time consuming, and often painful if a spinal tap is required. Researchers therefore have a new mission. They are searching for a better, cheaper, and faster blood test to hunt for abnormal versions of tau proteins, enabling the diagnosing of the disease at earlier stages.

Conclusion

Hopefully with all of these new tests and trials a solid cure for this horrid disease will soon be found, and made public. At this time there are many, many clinical trials listed on the internet. Most of these are asking for volunteers to participate so if you are interested search online for a study near you.

There is our look at the most promising approaches to curing Alzheimer’s today, and they are looking promising, indeed.

The trusted PureFormulas store has a great supplement for Alzheimer’s:

If your brain isn’t getting the right nutrients‚ a supplement may be beneficial. Pure Encapsulations’ CogniMag provides a polyphenol blend‚ along with a unique form of magnesium‚ to promote better cognitive functioning.

Each capsule of CogniMag contains 1‚000 milligrams of Magtein™ magnesium-l-threonate. Since it is the only form that is able to cross the blood-brain barrier (as opposed to being digested and having some of the mineral being degraded before your body can absorb it)‚ it can provide more direct benefit. Magnesium supports cognitive functioning and working memory‚ among other things.

CogniMag may support learning and memory by promoting density and plasticity of the synapses in the parts of the hippocampus responsible; a more plastic brain is better able to adapt quickly to new information and tasks.

  1. Hi, Allen.

    Why is it so hard to believe that something can be cured? Anything can be cured. It will just be hidden, or made illegal. But if nobody believes these man-inflicted diseases can be cured, it will make a cure a lot harder.

    The ultimate example of the powers that be hiding cures, or making them illegal is Chlorine Dioxide Solution / MMS.

    Thanks for your thoughts, and you are bang on! 

    And God bless you, also!

  2. Hello,

    I’m not sure how much I believe in the idea that we’ll one day be able to cure Alzheimer’s. But I do hope we can find a way to stop the disease before it starts. I believe one way is that we should be more responsible for ourselves instead of completely trusting our Doctors and the pharmaceutical industry. I believe that our foods are tainted with chemicals that cause harm to our bodies. In the 60s and 70s, you never heard of people developing dementia like you do today. Back then we used to grow our own vegetables and our food didn’t have all of the artificial ingredients it has today. I believe greed is killing a lot of us!

    Excellent article my friend. God bless!

  3. Well said, and thanks for your comments.

    It is sad that people are too “busy” to take control of their own health. That sure is an excuse for a lot of things, but many are getting on board.

  4. This is a good article on Alzheimer’s disease, as it discussed the “glimmering hope”, treatment being in the horizon. People’s ways are changing, as many are now focused on the use of natural supplements to enhance our over-all health and wellness. Although there is still a divide in the spectrum, caused primarily by the fast-paced lifestyle and/or challenging economic situations on one side, and the health awareness and conscientious prevention of disease and promotion of wellness on the other.

    I agree on the use of supplements to improve memory and brain function. There are still so many things we do not know about human brain and its function. So, there maybe truth on the  issue on neuroplasticity, similarly as other parts of our body organs,  especially the heart when it compensates.

  5. Thank you very much, Daniel. Well said, and yes, everyone should be taking preventative measures early on, because those things are just healthy, anyway!

  6. Hello Larke,

    Indeed, this disease is terrible because it directly affects the brain. And it is hereditary. The symptoms reach their peak when people are old, that’s why it’s even harder for those who take care of them. 

    Those who have had cases on the family line can expect to be affected sooner or later. For them, a preventive treatment might help. They themselves should be aware and start this prevention. Otherwise, no one knows if he will have this condition, at what age it will start, and how serious it will be. 

    The first signs, the first memory losses are not noticed by the affected person but by those around them. By the time the doctor made the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s, it was already too late. This disease is treacherous.  

    The chosen subject is very good and the supplements described are interesting. The page is well made, with useful information. It has a bit of advertising, it’s ok, you didn’t exaggerate.  Overall you have done a good job with this site.

    Good luck with it.

    All the best

    Daniel

  7. We wouldn’t steer you wrong, Danny. I become ever-increasingly aware of lies and propaganda surrounding  matters of health, and if nobody else was telling the truth, we still would. Fortunately there are lots of people more  knowledgeable than ourselves who are sharing their truth to the world, often quite sacrificially. It is this that still makes it a nice world.

  8. Hello thanks for dropping a review on this product and as well enlightening us the medical effects. Well I don’t know much about this products so i can’t really say much but judging from your articles i believe it is something worth trying. I hope that anyone suffering from this medical condition can be free from it permanently

  9. My stepfather died from dementia very recently. I wish I had known what I do now sooner, but as you say, at least we can help ourselves now. And anybody else who will listen!

  10. My father developed Alzheimer’s late in his live and died from it, so I have been very aware of trying to prevent myself developing the condition. Being able to protect and possibly reverse Alzheimer’s through the use of natural products, are indeed good news. And much better than using pharmaceutical chemicals. 

    The list of natural supplements as recommended by Dr. Dale Bredeson, is very helpful. I recently started using Ashwagandha, and have been taking zinc, but will certainly included more of these natural herbs to help my aging mind.
