Dr Dale Bredesen

Joining us today is Dr Dale Bredesen, an internationally-recognized expert in the mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases, and he believes Alzheimer’s is not just preventable, but reversible. In this episode, Dale explains the true complexity of the disease, and why it needs to be researched and treated in ways that are just as complex – a notion he feels contemporary medicine is only just waking up to. You’ll hear about his New York Times bestselling book, The End of Alzheimer’s, and where his research has taken him in the time since.

Perhaps one of the remarkable things he's learned is the relationship we have with Alzheimer’s and how lifestyle choices, geographical location and genetics are all influential and sometimes decisive factors. Just as importantly, his research points to how we may have larger control over most of these conditions than previously thought. We also take a retrospective look at his education and uncover the archaic ways the medical fraternity used to look at Alzheimer’s.

Yet, we’re also sure to take a moment to celebrate the wonderful and hopeful direction that this disease is headed, thanks to new research opportunities like multivariable trials. Throughout this enriching and stimulating conversation, Dale uses cleverly simple metaphors to make ideas and evidence more clean-cut and digestible. For more on the disease, it’s parallels to COVID-19, and what the future holds, be sure to join us!
