From the Publisher
—Maria Shriver, Today Show
"The End of Alzheimer’s is a monumental work. Dr. Bredesen completely recontextualizes this devastating condition away from a mysterious and unsolvable process to one that is both preventable and, yes, reversible. Pinning our hopes on pharmaceutical research to develop a miraculous wonder drug has left both physicians and patients empty handed. But now, this comprehensive approach offers solid results, bringing hope to so many."
—David Perlmutter, MD, Board-certified neurologist and author, #1 New York Times bestseller, Grain Brain, and Brain Maker
"The End of Alzheimer's, for the first time, synthesizes the latest science into a practical plan that can reverse Alzheimer's and dramatically improve brain health and function. If you have a brain, read this book."
—Mark Hyman, MD, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Eat Fat, Get Thin
"This book represents a major turning point in our approach to Alzheimer’s disease, from viewing it as a mysterious and incurable affliction that is governed almost exclusively by our genes, to understanding it as a multifactorial condition that can be prevented and even reversed largely through nutrition and lifestyle change. For the first time ever, patients and families affected by Alzheimer’s—as well as those at high risk for this devastating disease—truly have a reason to be hopeful."
—Chris Kresser, M.S., L.Ac Founder, Kresser Institute for Functional & Evolutionary Medicine, Author of the New York Times best seller The Paleo Cure
"The End of Alzheimer’s is a masterful, authoritative, and ultimately hopeful patient guide to functional medicine for your brain. It will help you prevent and reverse Alzheimer’s disease, whether you have the ApoE4 gene or not. My patients fear Alzheimer’s more than any other diagnosis. This is the book to transmute fear into action."
—Sara Gottfried, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Younger
"Having spent several years implementing many of Dr. Bredesen's insights in my patients, I can assure you that following his advice can save yourself, your loved ones, and your friends from suffering from this preventable and reversible curse."
—Steven Gundry, MD, author of the New York Times bestseller The Plant Paradox
"Dr. Dale Bredesen is a world class neuroscientist/neurologist who through his innovative and exacting research has discovered a safe and effective approach to the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer's disease that will revolutionize the way we think about the disease."
—Jeffrey Bland, PhD, FACN, FACB; President, Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Institute
"The End of Alzheimer's offers a new beginning in Medicine — changing the focus from a singular disease to recognizing the systems-based approach required to care for the whole person. Dr. Bredesen translates the knowledge of science to the wisdom that helps to heal our people . . . and provide a vision for the end of Alzheimers!"
—Patrick Hanaway, MD, Founding Medical Director, Director of Research, Center for Functional Medicine, Cleveland Clinic
"In this engaging, heartfelt, and insightful book, Dr. Bredesen elucidates a bold new approach to Alzheimer's, rooted in decades of his own pioneering research. A must read for anyone wondering what can be done for this dread disease, whether for themselves, a loved one, or a patient."
—Nathan Price, PhD, Professor & Associate Director of the Institute for Systems Biology

In this book, Dr. Dale Bredesen's introduces his protocol which he calls "ReCODE", otherwise known as the "Bredesen Protocol" elsewhere. He claims it can reverse Alzheimer's, through a mixture of a lot of different lifestyle changes to sleep and diet patterns. This is certainly a miraculous claim, to have a cure for AD when so many others have failed. However, a quick Google search will show that there is no support of his claims by other researchers, and even no mention of it whatsoever on Wikipedia.
Bredesen's initial trial consisted of 10 patients, which then expanded to about 100. He never got support from the scientific community to conduct a proper clinical trial, since his protocol varied too many things at the same time. In response, he claims that AD is too complicated to be treated by one thing, therefore any single-factor trial will miss it, so he bypassed the scientific protocol and conducted his own trials. This is not how science works. The point of large scale studies is so that even a small effect can be significant when the sample size is large enough.
By overriding scientific consensus, this should immediately raise a lot of red flags, and everything he claims afterwards can safely be dismissed.
I was overwhelmed by the scope and depth of Dr Bredsen's work as a neurologist, a researcher and an author.
This doctor is a medical leader that eventually be understood by young doctors everywhere. History will see him as one of medicine's greats!

As well as documenting practical approaches to reversing Alzheimer's (and in so doing give hope to the millions who are already afflicted or who are genetically predisposed to the disease) Dr Bredesen explains how underlying physiological pathways converge to increase the risk of getting the disease. Dr Bredesen intersperses his narrative with testimonials of patients who have successfully reversed this truly awful soul-destroying disease.
It is evident that Dr Bredesen has faced huge obstacles in extending the reach of his programme to reverse Alzheimer's however he has been resolute in his determination to conduct further trials and to spread the message of hope that his programme, ReCODE offers to many millions of sufferers and their loved ones.
I remain convinced that Dr Bredesen's 21st Century 'programmatic' medical approach will ultimately gain world-wide acceptance not just for Alzheimer's but for other modern chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
I'd like to say thank you to Dr Bredesen and his team for their research over the past three decades because for people like me who face the horrific prospect of Alzheimer's I now have hope and a means to avoid it and live a healthier lifestyle as I age.
This is brilliantly written and easy to understand. A fantastic resource.
