UCLA professor (Bredesen) shows lifestyle changes can often reverse early-onset Alzheimer's


A UCLA  neurology professor at UCLA, Dale Bredesen, reports that patients with early onset Alzheimer’s disease make major regains in cognition with lifestyle changes, which include “Mediterranean diet”, 12 hour fasts, and plenty of sleep, and vigorous exercise.  The Buck Institute has a detailed article here.

The story was reported on the NBC Today show early Thursday.


 
My own mentation, at 73, sometimes experiences “senior moments”, of not remembering a particular name for a minute or so, and then the name suddenly comes to mind and gets restored in other brain cells (rather like making another copy of a file to a different directory on a computer).
