Dawn of the Era of Treatable Alzheimer’s Disease

Clinical insights at the forefront of cognitive health from Dr. Dale Bredesen

 

In this video presentation, Dale Bredesen, MD presents on advances in Alzheimer’s disease research. He proposes that we are entering the era of treatable Alzheimer’s disease. He also discusses mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and subjective cognitive impairment (SCI), conditions that can be precursors to Alzheimer’s disease. Indeed, the opportunity exists to improve our cognition regardless of if these conditions are present.

First, Dr. Bredesen discusses some “shocking truths” about Alzheimer’s disease that have come from his 25+ years of research:

  • For many people, Alzheimer’s is a programmatic downsizing of the neural plasticity network rather than a “disease”
  • Treatment of Alzheimer’s should be preventive, and drugs should be a final treatment option, not the initial treatment

Some of Dr. Bredesen’s strategies for improving our cognition include:

  • Improved nutrition with plant-based foods, high-quality fats
  • Aerobic and strength exercise 5 times per week
  • High quality sleep, as close to 8 hours per night as possible
  • Reduce stress with meditation
  • Optimize gut health with pre- and probiotics
