How do you want to age? Most of us fear living out our years in a nursing home as we drool away with an absent mind.
According to my wife Dr. Sara in her new book Younger, the number of people 65 and older that get alzheimer’s disease is expected to triple and that our risk doubles every five years. By age 85 our risk hits fifty percent!
Most of us know someone who has experienced this disease. They lose their memory, language, problem solving and cognitive capabilities.
This week’s Regen360 podcast show features a global expert in treating alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Dale Bredesen practices at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging and is a UCLA professor of medicine specializing in neurology. His research and trials give us great hope that alzheimer’s can be reversed through an intensive functional medicine protocol over three to six months.
Dr. Bredesen points out that if we envision a roof with 36 leaking holes and a drug that patches just one hole, we still have a leaky roof. So we need to treat the totality of holes to stop the condition. The key, as always, is to address the multiple root-causes.
