The onset of Alzheimer’s disease is, unfortunately, very gradual and subtle in its early stages. This makes it hard to catch at the point where it can still be stopped or greatly slowed down.
But simple changes in nutrition and lifestyle, as well as the right supplementation can have a tremendous effect on the treatment of early Alzheimer’s. Yet because symptoms at this stage of the disease are is so mild, most of those afflicted and their families do not recognize them it as anything other than what many mainstream doctors would call “normal” age-related decline.
And once symptoms become apparent, it is usually too late for any simple intervention to work.
Dr. Al Sears doesn’t believe that minds must always slow down with age. He has worked for years to help his patients at the Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine maintain sharp and vibrant intellects well into their 90s. He has a fundamentally different perspective on the causes and mechanisms behind the Alzheimer’s epidemic, and has recently developed a unique treatment protocol to help people at almost any stage of the disease.
