This material comes from some of the group of physicians who presented at the 2015 Conference on NeuroRegeneration hosted by the Academy of Comprehensive Integrative Medicine (acimconnect.com) in Orlando, Florida. Dr. Miller participated in this work, and spoke at the conference on his work Reversing Macular Degeneration.
We wanted to create a worksheet to offer a ranked list of the things we all felt were important for people trying to reverse, or prevent, cognitive decline. We decided to base our list on some work that one of the doctors had been involved in at UCLA the year before. This was a small study, but was the first to show that memory loss in patients may be reversed, and improvement sustained, using a complex therapeutic program that involves comprehensive changes in diet, brain stimulation, exercise, optimization of sleep, specific vitamins, and multiple additional steps that affect brain chemistry.
All of the interventions used in this protocol were chosen because they had good research showing that they were effective, a high margin of safety, and an understood mechanism of action. The list I offer here is slightly modified from the original study, based on the collective input from the doctors at the 2015 conference.
Nine out of ten people in this study had significant improvements in their memory and cognitive function, some to the point where they were able to return to work. At the time we met, the longest follow-up was over three years, and the improvements were sustained. To put this in context, please realize that billions of dollars have been spent looking for a pharmaceutical to do what this study did, and none of the drugs investigated have had any effect at all.
Half of the people in the study carried a diagnosis of Alzheimer disease.
