 I don’t like to recommend things that I can not prove. But after taking these for every long time they have been safe. I also believe they are helping along with the other drugs I take. No one will ever know if this combination works but I did a lot of studding and many do agree that there is some possibility. The ways I see it is you have nothing to lose. Don’t expect a change overnight. You will need to give it at least 3 to 6 months. Don’t expect it to reverse it but just delay it.

 

 

Turmeric 1 capsule AM daily

Resveratrol 1 capsule AM, 1 capsule PM daily

Coconut Oil 2 gm AM, 2 gm PM daily

 

These are the others below I take but not recommending this without speaking to you doctor. I also take many other drugs to lower heartrate, cholesterol, blood pressure and even depression. I believe they are all helping in their own way  

 

Galantamine 4mg AM, 8mg PM daily

Memantine 10mg AM, 10mg PM daily

Unfortunately, the Alzheimer's Association has never taken the time and effort to update its alternative treatment section.  They know that there are better alternative treatments for Alzheimer's disease than the ones they list.

You actual got my curiosity of what AA was saying. As usual they are wrong. This is false statement below.

 

“A few people have reported that coconut oil helped the person with Alzheimer’s, but there’s never been any clinical testing of coconut oil for Alzheimer’s, and there’s no scientific evidence that it helps.

 

They had tried to do many studies but each time they did this the people decided to go out and buy the real product rather then taking the placebo which cause them to stop the trial.  

 

An It was I who educated AA about Cholinesterase inhibitors. They kept telling people it was only good for 1 ½ years. They were so wrong on that. So before you tell people were to go they should go to a real trusted sources. I have had many key scientist and Neurologist look at what I take and many think it is very possible that I may be on to something. And my results are much better than I said but I am trying to tone it down as I don’t want to give false hope. Even Maria C. Carrillo, Ph.D., Chief Science Officer of AA agreed with me.
