In 2016 dementia and Alzheimer's Disease made headline news by becoming the leading cause of death in England and Wales.

 

Although cardiovascular disease remains the number one killer for men, Alzheimer's Disease is number one overall and for women.

However, despite millions of pounds being spent on drug research there is still no effective drug therapy.


Alzheimer's Disease is a concern for many individuals, particularly those who have friends or relatives with the disease. Now there may be an effective way to reduce the risk of cognitive decline and Alzheimer's Disease

In 2014 Professor Dale Bredesen published a paper 'Reversal of Cognitive Decline; a novel therapeutic approach' showing reversal of cognitive decline through nutritional and lifestyle changes. Further research is ongoing but at the moment Prof. Bredesen is able to demonstrate that cognitive decline is preventable and  early stage Alzheimer's Disease is treatable and reversible.

A 2015 paper published results from the FINGER study in Finland. This demonstrated that a multidomain approach combining dietary and lifestyle interventions may improve or maintain  cognitive function.


The Action Against Alzheimer's programme uses the nutritional and lifestyle changes of Prof. Bredesen's Protocol. It is supported by Cytoplan's charitable arm to enable Nutritional Therapists to deliver a course of 8 workshops covering topics that research has shown to be important for brain health:


         Nutrition -3 workshops
         Optimisation of gut health
         Stress management
         Sleep
         Exercise
         Brain training
