Study published showing a reversal of cognitive decline in Alzheimer's disease

A small USA study of 10 patients found they all showed improvements in their memories within the first few months – and increasingly so over a two-year period, for some. Some patients taking part had stopped working, or been struggling with their jobs at the time they joined the study. All have since been able to return to their jobs or continue working, with improved performance.

The findings, published in the journal Aging, claim to be the first to suggest memory loss in patients can be reversed, and improvement sustained. The treatment involved a complex, 36-point therapeutic programme, combining comprehensive diet changes, brain stimulation, exercise, sleep optimisation, specific drugs and vitamins, and other steps affecting brain chemistry.
