Non-drug treatment may reverse Alzheimer’s

2014-1007 Alzheimers

Excerpt of Article by Denise Dador | ABC7

In her article, Denise Dador explains, “Alzheimer’s disease was officially recognized a hundred years ago, but there’s still no effective treatment for it. Now researchers at UCLA say they’ve developed a program that shows for the first time memory loss being reversed. It’s not a drug; it’s not a procedure; it is a novel, comprehensive and personal approach to treating memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s.

Potential Benefits

Is it possible the program, or a similar program, could reverse the memory loss of brain injury survivors, or reverse the symptoms of ataxia, paralysis, or other disabilities?

Scott
Even after brain surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation treatments to eradicate his brain cancer, Scott continued to work; continued to study; and earned professional certifications from the Project Management Institute, American Society of Quality, and Stanford University School of Professional Development. How were all of these achievements possible at a time when Scott was struggling with the hurdles of brain injury? The answers are in this blog.

    Yes, plans that endorse healthy habits do lead to better overall health, including that of the brain. Many of us know this, but incorporating good habits into our daily lives can still be very challenging.

    More health plans today cover preventive services, help with the implementation and maintenance would be beneficial. The ability to increase quality of life, prevent future disease and eradicate brain related symptoms/deficits is fantastic.

      Esther, I agree it is difficult to change our habits. However, there is hope. The anti-smoking campaigns are obviously not 100% effective, but they still make progress. Similarly, if people understand the effects of unhealthy eating, they might change for the better. ~ Scott
