Publisher's Summary

First-person stories of patients who recovered from Alzheimer's disease - and how they did it.

It has been said that everyone knows a cancer survivor, but no one has met an Alzheimer's survivor - until now. In his first two books, Dr. Dale Bredesen outlined the revolutionary treatments that are changing what had previously seemed like the inevitable outcome of cognitive decline and dementia. And in these moving narratives, you can hear directly from the first survivors of Alzheimer’s themselves - their own amazing stories of hope told in their own words.

These first-person accounts honestly detail the fear, struggle, and ultimate victory of each patient's journey. They vividly describe what it is like to have Alzheimer's. They also drill down on how each of these patients made the program work for them - the challenges, the workarounds, the encouraging results that are so motivating. Dr. Bredesen includes commentary following each story to help point listeners to the tips and tricks that might help them as well.

Dr. Bredesen's patients have not just survived; they have thrived to rediscover fulfilling lives, rewarding relationships, and meaningful work. This book will give unprecedented hope to patients and their families.

Critic Reviews

"Perhaps the most important quality for Alzheimer’s patients and their families is hope, and in The First Survivors of Alzheimer’s, seven survivors offer genuine hope, both with their poignant stories and with their descriptions of the protocol details that led to their own successes. This is an inspiring book for the millions dealing with the challenges of cognitive decline and for those who want to prevent it." (Arianna Huffington, founder and CEO, Thrive Global)

"Dr. Bredesen takes us beyond the scientific validation of his program to reveal the depth of the personal narrative of those brave and pioneering individuals who chose to participate in his vanguard, approach to their illness.... Although it challenged them and their loved ones to the core, they were rewarded with recovery." (David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, Board-certified neurologist, author, number one New York Times best seller, Grain Brain and Brain Wash

"In The First Survivors of Alzheimer’s, 7 patients describe their struggles and ultimate triumphs, using the protocol developed by Dr. Bredesen. This book restores hopes for the millions of families impacted by Alzheimer's!" (Terry Wahls, MD, and author The Wahls Protocol

Give hope a chance!

You have nothing to lose by following this protocol and everything to gain. How I wish this had been known when I lost my own father to Alzheimers disease. I will do all in my power to protect my loved ones from this dreaded disease and support healthy aging.

Evidence based program

Impressive results described by patients who did their best to follow the program. Inspires me to learn more and adopt practices although program seems daunting. I wish I had known about this sooner.
