Dr Dale Bredesen has a treatment protocol that improves the conditions of all patients from moderately (late Alzheimer) to significantly (early Alzheimer). His treatment protocol recognizes 3 different types/causes of Alzheimer with an additional 2 subtypes. In December 2018 Dr Bredesen published an article where he shows the results of treatment of 100 patients in various health centers: https://www.omicsonline.org/open-access/reversal-of-cognitiv... It is a shame that Scientific American does not know of Dr Bredesen since he is publishing about his treatment a long time. In 2014 he published an article where he reversed Alzheimer in 9 out of 10 patients (which are still well in December 2018!).

OMICS is one of those fake-journal publication companies. Anyone can publish anything by paying their fee. The paper's own footnote shows this: Submitted October 8, 2018; Accepted October 12, 2018; Published October 19, 2018. No serious journal has a process that quick.

There was a talk at Defcon last year about this. Two journalists from Germany submitted a jibberish paper to one of these companies, got it published, and then they went on a "speaking tour," also organized by these fake journal companies.


After reading the article you linked and browsing his website, I am 100% convinced this person is a charlatan.
