Reversal of Cognitive Decline: A Novel Therapeutic Approach

Cognitive decline is a major concern of the aging population and Alzheimer’s disease is the major cause of age related memory loss with over 5 million Americans affected and 30 million worldwide.  This report (1) describes a novel, comprehensive and personalized therapeutic approach that is based on Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and involves several modalities designed to improve neuro-degeneration.  The first 10 patients who have utilized this program include participants with memory loss associated with AD and mild cognitive impairment (MCI).  Ninety percent  displayed improvement in cognition beginning within 3-6 months, with one failure being a patient with very late stage AD.  Six of the patients had to discontinue working or were struggling with their jobs and all were able to return to work or continue working with improved performance.  Improvements have been sustained, with good progress.  These results suggest that a larger, more extensive trial of this integrative therapeutic approach is needed.  The results also suggest that memory impairment may be driven by physical and chemical processes.  Moreover, since many drug trials have failed to treat AD, the results raise the possibility that these medicines maybe useful as a platform on which drugs that fail may succeed as key components of an integrative therapeutic system that incorporates medicine foods and supplementation.
