One in 10 individuals in the United States age 65 or older has Alzheimer’s disease.
According to a 2017 report by the Alzheimer’s Association, an estimated 5.5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease. There has been an 89 percent increase in deaths due to Alzheimer’s between 2000 and 2014. Additionally, the number of affected individuals is increasing as the population ages, and it is projected that the population of Americans age 65 and older will double by the year 2050. Up until now, there has been very little that can be done to prevent, reverse or slow cognitive decline.
But that is changing – Alzheimer’s disease is now a treatable condition.
Dr. Dale Bredesen has worked and researched with other scientists for over 30 years to develop The Bredesen ProtocolTM. This groundbreaking program has been shown to reverse cognitive decline in patients with early Alzheimer’s, MCI (mild cognitive impairment) or SCI (subjective cognitive impairment). (Read Dr. Bredesen’s paper here: https://goo.gl/2koMg6). TLC is excited to offer this program to our patients. Dr. Hopp is a certified practitioner of this protocol, and has been trained by Dr. Bredesen.
Dr. Bredesen explains this protocol in detail in his book, The End of Alzheimer’s. Find it here: https://goo.gl/EUdHUV
