About this title:

Synopsis:

In 2015, David Brown was shown three common words and was asked to remember them. He was drilled on the words repeatedly and was then asked a few minutes later to repeat them. He could recall only one word. Based on test results like this, his neurologist identified cognitive impairment. Later, his care team would read MRIs that showed progressive atrophy of his brain that signaled Alzheimer’s disease. He was 65 years old.

But late in 2017, Mr. Brown was given a test with 10 words to remember, and he could confidently recall nine of them. In another memory test, he scored perfectly. What happened?

Mr. Brown investigated what was being shown by scientific research to actually counter cognitive decline. Based on his investigation, he formulated his own strategy which has worked spectacularly for him. He now wants to share that strategy with the hope that it will help others.

In Beating the Dementia Monster, he tells his personal story and describes his strategy. He also identifies scientific research that explains why his strategy has worked so well.

If you are looking for the magic dietary supplement or the exotic diet that will cure your cognitive decline, it’s not here. However, if you or someone you love is facing the progression of mild cognitive impairment (MCI), there are things that you may be able to do to slow, stop, or even reverse cognitive decline.



"David Brown’s regimen has made a remarkable difference in his cognitive impairment. What he recommends is practical, doable, and good for all aspects of your health, both physical and psychological. It is something that anyone confronting MCI should try.”

Tae-Im Moon, Ph.D. Licensed Clinical Psychologist

"Engaging and informative.”

Carrie S. Brown, Ph.D. Author of Rosie’s Mom: Forgotten Women Workers of the First World War

About the Author:

Dave Brown is a retired engineer and high school science teacher. When he was 66 years old, he was diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment and was told this was almost certainly the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. Notably, an MRI found that his hippocampus had shrunk to the point that it was in the first (lowest) percentile of the general population. The hippocampus is the part of the brain most key to short-term memory, and his had shriveled dramatically. As time progressed, his symptoms increased, his work became more challenging, and he found it necessary to stop driving.

Stunned, but not willing to be overcome by the disease, he investigated the disease and learned what science was saying about how to treat it. The first thing he learned was that there were no drugs available to reverse, stop, or even slow the progress of the disease. There were drugs to treat the symptoms, but people on these drugs ended up in the same place at the same time -- dead in a few years. But there was plenty of research showing the effectiveness of other strategies to stop and even reverse the progress of the disease. He tried a mix of these strategies and found that they actually worked! Atrophy of his brain was halted, and his cognitive test scores stopped their decline and even showed signs of reversal. Most notably, the powerful depression of mood was reversed, and his joy of life returned.

David Brown is eager to share his story, because he is certain that others will benefit. In "Beating the Dementia Monster," he tells the story of the progress of the disease and how he stopped it. It provides a lively account of his experience, what he did, and discussions of the scientific research that explains why he has been so successful.
