“Light” Therapy Restores Memories

Your memories make you who you are. And I can’t imagine anything worse than losing them.

Organizations like the Alzheimer’s Association will tell you that once your memories are lost, they’re gone forever…

But that’s simply not true.

I’ve been using a breakthrough therapy that is helping my patients prevent — and even reverse — memory loss.

I’m talking about “halo laser light therapy.” And it’s backed by compelling, powerful new research.

Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center wanted to know if the curative powers of lasers could do anything for Alzheimer’s patients.

So they took a group of healthy mice and Alzheimer’s mice and trained them both to associate a lemon scent with a mild electric shock. The researchers marked the neurons in their brain where the memory was stored with yellow dye.

When the mice recalled the memory, the neurons were marked with red dye.1

A week later they retested the mice. The healthy mice remembered the scent and froze in fear of the shock to come.

But the Alzheimer’s mice only remembered half of the time. Instead of remembering the information in the yellow neuron, they were bringing up a different neuron — a different memory marked in red.

So the researchers gave the mice a little help…

They stimulated their brains with laser light. And lo and behold, the Alzheimer mice could now recall their “lost” memory!

In other words, zapping the correct neuron brought their memory back.

Then it was time to test on human patients. This time researchers tested laser light therapy on a group of five patients who exhibited dementia or Alzheimer’s conditions.

For 12 weeks, participants were treated with intracranial laser light therapy. They were then assessed again using the same cognitive exams that showed they had dementia to begin with.

The results were dramatic. Patients had increased function, better sleep, fewer angry outbursts and less anxiety.

The researchers also reported “significant improvement in cognition in mild to moderately severe dementia cases.”

Without any negative side effects.

This is amazing research. It means Alzheimer’s is not a disease that destroys memories. It’s more like a short-circuit in your brain’s ability to retrieve memories. Your precious memories aren’t really missing at all.

You can rediscover the clear thinking and memory agility of your youth. Here are some natural brain boosters you can take advantage of right now.

Take the 1-2 Punch Proven to Reverse Memory Loss and Alzheimer’s

Here are two more ways you can protect your brain naturally.

In a groundbreaking study, researchers at UCLA reversed Alzheimer’s disease in 9 out of 10 patients. They did so using a protocol that includes two nutrients I’ve been recommending to my patients for years.

I prescribe these nutrients to my patients to help treat a number of age-related diseases, including cancer, diabetes, arthritis, heart disease — and diabetes.

  1. First, take an omega-3 fatty acid called DHA. Your brain is 60% fat, and DHA makes up 40% of that. But levels drop dramatically with Alzheimer’s. DHA protects your brain’s ability to grow new nerve cells and increases production of neurotransmitters. And those with higher DHA levels have more brain plasticity.

    Animal studies show DHA supplements can improve memory by 12% in old mice.2 It can also restore brain cell growth and memory in mice with Alzheimer’s.3

    I advise my patients to get their DHA from krill and calamari oil. They’re more concentrated than regular fish oil. And your body absorbs them better. I recommend you get at least 600 mg of DHA every day.

  2. Then, add in some vitamin D. In a second UCLA study, adults over the age of 65 with insufficient vitamin D3 in their blood were shown to have twice the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease as those with sufficient levels. And the risk for Alzheimer’s increased with the degree of vitamin D deficiency.4

    I recommend you supplement with a kind of vitamin D called cholecalciferol daily, preferably in the morning but never at night. That’s because vitamin D is inversely related to melatonin, your sleep hormone, and may keep you awake. I recommend taking 2,000 mg.
