This is so promising! Does seem to help people in the early stages.

"This is the first study to objectively show that memory loss in patients can be reversed, and improvement sustained, using a complex, 36-point therapeutic personalized program that involves comprehensive changes in diet, brain stimulation, exercise, optimization of sleep, specific pharmaceuticals and vitamins, and multiple additional steps that affect brain chemistry."

More detail regarding treatment and the people who participated in the study:

My plan is to try to make some of the dietary changes suggested and see if that can improve my memory (and health). I already get enough sleep and regular exercise. Hopefully a few positive things might make a small change.

Having MS, having short term memory issues, I was forced to become an expert on memory issues. I'm afraid that if Alzheimer patients get off the program, matters will regress fast. As with all programs that rely on constant support and exercise for most people.

I too do everything that I can to train my memory. Of course it helps ... a little, but better something than nothing, I guess.

Regarding MS, they are looking into myelin repairing meds, to heal -hopefully most - of the damaged brain and spine nerves. As for Alzheimer, this looks promising too: http://www.sciencealert.com/new-alzheimer-s-treatment-fully-restores-memory-function

That is fascinating, pigjes! It looks so promising! And yes, you are right about quick regression/deterioration if someone goes off the MEND therapy that this study uses.

Losing cognitive function is so devastating.

Thanks for finding and posting this, Lynx. I'll be sharing with my Mom.
