St. Luke’s Speaker to Show How to Reverse Alzheimer’s
Thursday, July 12, 2018


A New York Times bestselling author will discuss “The End of Alzheimer’s: The First Program to Prevent and Reverse Cognitive Decline” on Thursday, Aug. 2 in Ketchum.

Dr. Dale E. Bredesen will present the free lecture at 5:30 p.m. at the Presbyterian Church of the Big Wood as the St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation’s featured Health and Wellness speaker for 2018.

The presentation is free but those who wish to attend must RSVP with Betsy Mullins at 208-727-8419 or by July 31.

Bredesen, who wrote “The End of Alzheimer’s,” received his medical degree from Duke. He served as chief resident in Neurology at University of California-San Francisco before serving as a UCLA faculty member. He then  directed the Burnham Institute’s Program on Aging and later became the founding president and CEO of the Buck Institute for Research on Aging.

He became director of the Easton Center for Alzheimer’s Disease Research at UCLA in 2013.

Bredesen studies the basic mechanisms underlying the neurodegenerative process and uses his findings  to develop a new approach to the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.

His book outlines 36 factors, including micronutrients, hormone levels, stress and sleep quality that can trigger downsizing in the brain. And it offers a protocol for rebalancing those factors with lifestyle modifications, such as taking B12.

Nine of the first 20 patients on the protocol displayed significant improvement within six month, Bredesen said. And, since, the protocol has yielded similar results for hundreds more.
