Lifestyle Changes Bring Back Memory & Cognitive Function – A UCLA Study

I LOVE reading articles such as this one. Amazing…let’s hope that people are willing to try. So many people refuse to admit they play a role in their own health and chalk everything up to “it runs in the family.” I used to be one of those people.

“Ten memory-loss patients, some with brain-scan-confirmed patterns of Alzheimer’s, participated in a small UCLA trial called MEND (Metabolic Enhancement for NeuroDegeneration).
In the UCLA protocol, patients made dramatic lifestyle changes. They avoided simple carbs, gluten and processed foods. They increased their fish intake, took yoga and meditated. They were instructed to take melatonin, get adequate sleep, incorporate vitamin B-12, vitamin D-3 and fish oil.
Within six months, nine patients saw a noticeable improvement in memory. One patient, who was in the late stages of Alzheimer’s, did not show improvement. UCLA researchers say the findings suggest at least early on, changing a person’s metabolic processes can bring back memory and cognitive function.
Six of the patients of the patients in the study who had to discontinue working were all able to return to their jobs. Study authors say some patients were followed up to two and a half years and the memory improvements remained.
