Women Surviving Alzheimers, True Stories & How To Prevent Dementia- Dr. Dale Bredesen

Dr. Dale Bredesen is not only intelligent, talented and someone who can think unconventionally, but someone who is also kind, humble and can express very complex systems in terms we can all understand. Today we learn more about his groundbreaking research in dementia.

It was an honor to have Dr. Bredesen on the podcast back in 2021 and now a double honor to have him on for a second time to discuss one of his most recent books The First Survivors of Alzheimers.


Dr. Dale Bredesen is a scientist, a researcher and an expert in neurodegenerative diseases, particularly Alzheimer’s disease. He published over 200 papers, which many of them you can find in a pubmed search.

In 2017 he wrote a groundbreaking book and New York Times bestseller called : The End of Alzheimer’s and then several years later wrote a follow up book: The End of Alzheimer’s Program (2020). And last year he wrote “The First Survivors of Alzheimer’s: How Patients Recovered Life and Hope in Their Own Words”.

Dr. Bredesen is a professor at UCLA, but he’s also taught at UC San Francisco, and the University of California San Diego. He directed the Program on Aging at the Burnham Institute before going to the Buck Institute for Research on Aging in 1998 as its founding president and CEO.

Most doctors and experts in this field say there is no cure for Alzheimer’s. But Dr. Bredesen blatantly says that Alzheimer’s is absolutely reversible and preventable. He is going against the grain with his research, which he has been working on for decades.

He’s been consulting patients who have been told by their doctors to get their affairs in order before they die, because there is nothing they can do to help them. But now, Dr. Bredesen is not only giving these people hope, but actually a future they can look forward to.
