Alzheimer’s is a frightening disease, not only for those who suffer from memory loss, but also for their families. Researchers in California say a new way of treating Alzheimer’s disease is showing promise for reversing some of that memory loss. The new treatment combines western medicine with eastern philosophy – ideas rooted in Asian religions. Dr. Dale Bredesen is with the Easton Center for Alzheimer’s Disease Research at UCLA. He says nine of 10 patients suffering from either Alzheimer’s or other brain disorders noted memory improvements. He says the new therapy treats the whole patient, not just parts of the patient. Dr Bresdesen says there is an ongoing balance of the brain remembering and forgetting. He says 36 different things, including a person’s lifestyle, can create an imbalance in the brain. This imbalance can lead to memory loss. Some of those things include a person’s diet, exercise and sleep. Dr. Bredesen takes images of the patients’ brains, tests their blood and asks about their daily life. Treatments include lifestyle changes and even medicines or vitamin pills. Patients were told to avoid carbohydrate foods, like bread and pasta. They also avoided gluten, a protein found in wheat, and processed foods. Researchers told them to eat more fish and to take vitamin B12, D3 and fish oil pills. They also practiced yoga, sat quietly for 20 minutes two times each day and they slept more. The peoples’ memory improvements remained, even two and a half years later.
