“Everyone knows a cancer survivor—someone who has been successfully treated and is now cancer-free—but no one knows an Alzheimer’s survivor. This tragic disease—the third leading cause of death in the United States—has had no effective treatment. Now there may be new hope for those suffering with or at risk for Alzheimer’s.
Dr. Dale Bredesen, renowned neurologist and author of the recent bestseller The End of Alzheimer’s: The First Program to Prevent and Reverse Cognitive Decline, is changing the science and treatment of this neurodegenerative disease. His published, peer-reviewed findings are the first to show a reversal of cognitive decline in Alzheimer’s,1-3 and the comprehensive “whole person” approach known as the Bredesen Protocol is now being followed by over 1,000 patients. Many of the studied patients have shown significant cognitive improvements in three to six months—some in as little as four days—improvements that have been sustained for years while patients adhere to the Protocol. The findings of these studies could be game-changing for the 75 million Americans, and their families, who carry the Alzheimer’s gene.” ….

“For years, it has been ridiculed as a 1960s embarrassment. Now Transcendental Meditation is back in a big way. So were those hippies on to something all along? …
… The first thing I noticed was that repeating the “sound vibration” of my mantra took me to a place which was neither wakefulness, sleeping nor dreaming. Over the course of subsequent sessions I’ve regularly become detached from my physical self and dipped in and out of this “fourth state” of consciousness. Allowing sometimes painful thoughts and feelings to come to the surface has bought tears to my eyes, but I’ve also reached important decisions.
A month into my practice, I have not so far experienced “bliss”, a condition beyond time and space in which one is not “ebulliently happy”, as Rosenthal puts it, but “calm and alert”; a state, he explains, in which one realises that “just to be is a blessing”. But I’m prepared to believe the effects are gradual and I’m struck by the fact that I no longer resent the necessary investment of time. ” …
