Some of you might already know that I lost my mom to early onset Alzheimer’s disease (AD) in 2005. She was diagnosed in the year 2000, but we knew something wasn’t’ right several years before that.
To try to help her, I threw myself into the research in brain science. I was already doing tons of research and health and exercise, so I was familiar with things that were good for the brain (which also happened to be things that are good for the heart), but I focused more on brain science to see if there was anything I could do to help her.
Back then, there wasn’t enough research to come up with the right kind of plan, so I really couldn’t help her much. Medical “wisdom” at the time concluded that AD was not fixable or reversible, but there were some drugs that could slow it down. These drugs had pretty nasty side effects though, so it really wasn’t a good solution.
After she passed, I kept studying the research because what I had already learned from 1999 to 2005 was that new discoveries were coming out every day, so I figured there was hope that somebody would come up with something better than what the current Western medical “wisdom” was telling us.
I’m glad I stayed buried in the research since 1999 (and I will never stop) because what I have learned through all those years is astonishing.
The knowledge we are gaining now about AD and the brain seems to be exponential because I have learned more in the last two years than I had in the previous 17 years. It was actually in 2016 that the conclusion about AD being reversible was made!
We also now know that AD can be prevented (even in those individuals who have the genetic predisposition for it and that AD can be slowed down or even stopped in those individuals who have it.
I could fill a thousand page book with what I’ve learned since throwing myself into the research, but I’ve boiled it down to my top five tips for preventing, slowing, stopping, or ever even reverse AD and other forms of dementia.
If you follow all five of the recommendations below carefully every day, it is my opinion that you will never get AD. If you already have it (or any other kind of dementia), you can reverse it, especially if you are in the early stages when you are more likely to be willing and able to follow them.*
If you follow four of these recommendations carefully and closely every day, you might still be able to reverse it, but can almost surely prevent it, slow it down, or stop it.
If you follow three of these recommendations carefully and closely every day, you will be doing better than most people, so your chances are better than theirs, but it might not be enough to prevent, slow or reverse AD and other forms of dementia.

- I mention “willing and able to follow” these suggestions because most people with AD aren’t even willing to admit they have it, let alone follow willingly in the steps to prevent, treat, or reverse it. This is one of the interesting characteristics of AD – that most victims vehemently deny they have it and don’t even want to discuss it, which makes working on it quite difficult since the first step that needs to happen before the work can start, is to accept it and then face it down through implementing strategies like these. Other forms of dementia don’t seem to include this characteristic of denial or defensiveness. In fact, when people have other forms of dementia, they even occasionally joke about having it. Those people also are usually more willing to start and maintain an aggressive program to fight dementia and even reverse it.
