Dr. Dale Bredesen, author of The End of Alzheimer's: The First Program to Prevent and Reverse Cognitive Decline, has opened my eyes to the reality of 20th Century medicine. The "monotherapeutic" approach (one magic pill to cure any condition) is no longer working... especially in the case of neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer's Disease. Big Pharma has literally conducted hundreds of clinical trials and spent BILLIONS of dollars to make a magic pill for Alzheimer's.The only "successes" have little symptomatic effect and very little or NO effect on disease progression!
That is what intrigued me about his new approach. The current medical perception of how to cure AD and other neurodegenerative diseases is slowly starting to change thanks to Dr Bredesen's work. He has identified over 40 factors that can lead to cognitive decline. While it was once believed the culprit was the amyloid plaquing that was found in patients suffering with Alzheimer's, Dr Bredesen has a novel perspective. His research has shown that the plaquing is actually the brain's way of protecting the body against the 40 factors I will be discussing over the next several shows. The "American Diet" is slowly turning our population into mindless zombies. It has lead to chronic inflammation, an overprescribing of toxic drugs such as statins and blood pressure meds, and sleep apnea that often goes undiagnosed.
As an "alternative health" professional, my purpose for this podcast is to summarize Dr Bredesen's findings and guide our suffering population to the proper health coaches, alert them to the nutritional danger signs and reveal the genetic tests that can help turn around the sinking ship of monotherapeutics. As a former professional athlete, I also realized the connection of Dr Bredesen's findings to the long term effects of concussions and CTE.
