Memory loss in Alzheimer’s patients has been reversed with a tailor-made combination of diet, medication and and lifestyle changes, scientists claim. A small study of 10 patients found they all showed improvements in their memories within the first few months – and increasingly so over a two-year period, for some.

Some patients taking part had stopped working, or been struggling with their jobs at the time they joined the study. All have since been able to return to their jobs or continue working, with improved performance. The findings, published in the journal Aging, claim to be the first to suggest memory loss in patients can be reversed, and improvement sustained. CONTINUE
