Book in progress - expected publication late 2023

Dementia is not a mysterious disease that just happens! It happens for reasons, and when we search out and identify the contributing factors, we can halt or reverse dementia.

And then we can employ various methods for activation of neuroplasticity to regain brain function.

The author, a Psychiatrist and Alzheimer's researcher, was the Principal Investigator on 20 long-term Alzheimer's and MCI (Mild Cognitive Impairment) clinical trials, when she developed Dementia herself. She shares the Functional Medicine approach she used to reverse her own Dementia, and the steps she uses every day to help patients reverse Mild Cognitive Impairment and Dementia.

The book will also cover the Functional Medicine/Precision Medicine approach she used in the clinical trial she conducted with Dr. Dale Bredesen where 84% of the study patients with mild cognitive impairment and early dementia had improvements, including their MRI head scans.

This study was published in the prestigious Journal of Alzheimer's Disease in August 2022. 

Precision Medicine Approach to Alzheimer’s Disease: Successful Pilot Project 

As others have written, the approach to reversing Dementia definitely starts with changes in diet, exercise, sleep, and stress reduction. But Dr. Toups will show you how to partner with your Physician to search out some of the major drivers of Dementia, like Toxins and Infections and lack of Hormones.
