  • I don’t see turmeric here. Curcumin in turmeric has been proven to prevent Alzheimer’s. Not to mention that countries with a high turmeric consumption have very Low rates of neurodegenerative diseases.

  • If you are positive in several Herpes viruses, May it be a good idea a continuous retroviral medications for your brain and health in general? (although you do not have any symptoms)

  • So how do we get REAL blood tests done from doctors who know what there doing?? I feel like hell and I do eat crappy food all the time but yet my blood work always comes back PERFECT according to the doctor’s I go to???? Hey clearly do not know what the fuck to look for in health problems

  • I will definitely be saving this video, because I have PTSD, which puts me at risk for Alzheimer’s. I’ve already got some cognitive glitches, so it’s got me really doubling down on prevention. Thanks, man!

  • I have being suffering from herpes virus for couples of years and I had to tryna use herbal treatment from MADIDAHERBALCENTER though I have uses black seed oil and other pills before that.

  • Thank you for this video, as a RN I see a lot of people with dementia, so anything that could help prevent it I am grateful! FOOD HEALS! ��

  • Train your mind like you train your body.

    Disconnect from technology for moments in a day and give your mind the chance to figure things out. Our phone is making our brains lazy..

  • It is not accurate to say that nerve cells cannot be regenerated. There are preclinical research studies performed in mice showing the unique cannabinoid CBD promoted neurogenesis or the formation of new brain cells in adult mice. Other interventions, including exercise and brain games may promote neurogenesis and neural net connections.

  • Why do u make such lousy videos? For everything in this video you say No treatment, unknown factors, study shows but not confirmed. Every damn thing is don’t know or a maybe etc….Pls make video only if u are 100% convinced and you have all answers���� pleassseee. Don’t waste ppls time. And the music is so happy happy… and the content is so depressing, Are you really serious?? Are you for real?

  • Not very useful to me. Thought this would be a more practical discussion of brain health; things we can really do to offset this horrible brain disease like ways to improve brain health like diet and exercise. Nutrition and exercise to me are the most important things for brain and overall health and she didn’t even mention that here. Will keep searching for more useful info

  • I understand that you are not optimist about the approvement of your drug targetting AMYLOIDE PLAQUES…as they are not the cause of Alzheimer’s desease ( see DALE BREDESEN’s lectures)

  • Only 12 to 18hrs Fasts, very good.
    Suspect that when a Placebo is effective, it’s because it interrupts Nocebo causes of imbalance accumulation, usually too much Carbohydrates.

    Exercise, it’s not that different from Nutrients when you pay attention to consequences. It’s an awareness thing?

    Great (and entertaining) lecture.

  • Am guessing at 09:20 talking of low zinc/ high Copper, is referring to serum or RBC or hair element labs? Was going to get a Ceruloplasmin serum lab but maybe the whole panel (figure wont find a dr to get done so will have to pay for. (after paying for required insurance!). Are there signs of low zinc or high copper…? AM good for all the biomarkers done yet. Will get a Hc lab also. https://jbiomedsci.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12929-018-0444-2

  • Thank you for putting so much effort into this video. It’s very helpful. Especially the running footnotes. Saves me the trouble of looking up everything into the paper again and again:’)

  • Everything is prevention! I read the book, and links to a website were he sell products for this illness, but the vitamins he sell are synthetics, which are no good for the body.

  • mico toxins are increased hundreds of times when exposed to emf from call phones wifi etc yet another reason to wire up and limit exposure

  • The discussion and relationship between chronic inflammation and neurodegeneration is spot on. I have published several books about this relationship and how funneled mistake prone immune arsenal into interstitial spaces increases rather then decreases inflammation which in the case of AD involves the secretion of amyloid by astrocytes. and microglia. #Rejuvenation(2017) #Trafficking(2018) #Rejuvenation2.0(2019)

  • APOE genotype regulates pathology and disease progression in synucleinopathy. Most of the studies in AD have been focused on investigating the role of Aβ and Tau; however, recent studies suggest that α-syn might also play a role in the pathogenesis of AD. ApoE may regulate aSyn pathophysiology directly, independent of its effects on AD or tau (16–18). Aβ and α-syn might directly interact under pathological conditions leading to the formation of toxic oligomers and nanopores that increase intracellular calcium. The interactions between Aβ and α-syn might also result in oxidative stress, lysosomal leakage, and mitochondrial dysfunction.

  • Dr Bredesen is so incredible. Super knowledgeable, on top of things, communicates something so complex in such a simple way, stays his course in a non-defensive way in our crazy world of drug and symptom focused medicine. Docs like him and the groundbreaking approaches like this are the future of medicine!! A heartfelt thank you, Dr Bredesen!

  • https://youtu.be/Sq7uVZ_0D3U. The cure that UCLA came up for this disease is not for people this far down the road, but it did cure 9/10 patients in a small study, who were not this far gone. You can read Bredensen’s book or watch the link, but if you’re like me, I opted for reading his report in the medical literature first. This is the title of report 2016, “Reversal of Cognitive Decline in Alzheimer’s Disease” look it for at pubmed, the complete article is free. Sadly it’s a treatment that you will not like and that you must follow for the rest of your life, exercise, keto style, etc…

  • Murine Gut Microbiome Association With APOE Alleles.
    The mechanism(s) whereby APOE alleles may differentially modulate the gut microbiome is not known. In overview, we theorize that apoE alleles differentially modulate the basal inflammation state of intestinal macrophages, which are key regulators of innate lymphoid cells in the gut and, in turn, impact the gut microbiome. The rationale for this includes (i) APOE4 is associated with a greater pro-inflammatory response in multiple studies, e.g., treatment with LPS results in a greater plasma cytokine response in APOE4 positive humans, compared to APOE4 negative individuals (16). Similarly, treatment with bacterial lipoproteins or with LPS has been reported to produce an increased cytokine response in the APOE murine model used here (15, 80). Within the gut, pro-inflammatory signaling from intestinal macrophages to innate lymphoid cells modulates their interactions with multiple cell types to impact the gut microbiome [(81–83), reviewed in (84, 85)]. Hence, the greater propensity of APOE4 to promote inflammation, relative to APOE3, may underlie these microbiome differences. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7034241/

  • Does his protocol include any of the findings of psychophysiology and heart health? Specifically the role of inner harmony as measured through heart-brain coherence, entrainment, and HRV?
    While this interview was interesting and informative, what I hear is very much reductionistic, mechanistic science. It would appear to be beneficial to include systems thinking including the role of emotion and its impact and heart, brain, and autonomic nervous system.
    I am just pointing out a potential blindspot that could help make his vision, theory, and protocol more holistic and thus comprehensive.

  • Polyunsaturated fats have become the enemy. So high fat fish like salmon, seeds, nuts, vegetable oils…. not sugar. I wonder how long this will take to become mainstream.

  • The X Files: “The Mystery of X Chromosome Instability in Alzheimer’s Disease”
    The finding that affected brains show a two-fold increase in X chromosome aneuploidy in the hippocampus and cerebrum areas of the brain most affected by AD suggesting that altered sex chromosome dosage plays a role in the large scale genomic variation in neuronal cells in AD compared to controls.

  • Today we found out that my mother has a an extremely form of dementia called creutzfeldt jakob disease. One in a million gets this disease. My question to anyone out there, Is there hope? Is there a protocol for this, since it is an extreme form of dementia.. people with this disease die between six week to a year after the first symptoms

  • Funny he doesn’t mention a steady supply of energy as needed for “support” of neuroblastic activity. The brain uses like 20% of your energy.
