Alzheimer’s Action Plan
A study at the University of California, Los Angeles, found that a personalized program, based on several dozen tests, could reverse dementia symptoms ranging from mild memory problems to moderate Alzheimer’s disease. Of the 10 people in the study, six were either unable to work or had been struggling at their jobs, and all returned to work or significantly improved their performance. These were some of the key lifestyle steps:
Eating a low- grain or gluten- free diet, low in starches and sugar, and replacing processed food, as much as possible, with more vegetables, fruits, and nonfarmed fish.
Fasting for a minimum of 12 hours between dinner and breakfast, and for a minimum of three hours between dinner and bedtime.
Sleeping seven to eight hours per night.
Taking supportive supplements, which varied among individuals and included methylcobalamin ( B ), B , vitamin D, fish oil, coenzyme Q10, curcumin, ashwagandha, coconut or MCT oil, and citicoline.
Probiotics and prebiotics, where necessary, to repair gut health.
Exercising for a minimum of 30 minutes, four to six days per week.
Taking steps to reduce stress, with yoga or music, for example.
Improving dental health, where necessary, to reduce gum inflammation.
