In 2015, David Brown was shown three common words and was asked to remember them. He was drilled on the words repeatedly and was then asked a few minutes later to repeat them. He could recall only one word. Based on test results like this, his neurologist identified cognitive impairment. Later, his care team would read MRIs that showed progressive atrophy of his brain that signaled Alzheimer’s disease. He was 65 years old.
But late in 2017, Mr. Brown was given a test with 10 words to remember, and he could confidently recall nine of them. In another memory test, he scored perfectly. What happened?
Mr. Brown investigated what was being shown by scientific research to actually counter cognitive decline. Based on his investigation, he formulated his own strategy which has worked spectacularly for him. He now wants to share that strategy with the hope that it will help others.
In Beating the Dementia Monster, he tells his personal story and describes his strategy. He also identifies scientific research that explains why his strategy has worked so well.
If you are looking for the magic dietary supplement or the exotic diet that will cure your cognitive decline, it’s not here. However, if you or someone you love is facing the progression of mild cognitive impairment (MCI), there are things that you may be able to do to slow, stop, or even reverse cognitive decline.
"David Brown’s regimen has made a remarkable difference in his cognitive impairment. What he recommends is practical, doable, and good for all aspects of your health, both physical and psychological. It is something that anyone confronting MCI should try.”
