Welcome to the leading voice on the integrative medical approach to the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease.
If you are like millions of Americans and others around the world, your top health priority is “staying mentally sharp as I age.”
Beyond that, your #1 fear is developing Alzheimer’s. Why?
- There are now 5.4 million Americans with Alzheimer’s disease and this number is expected to sky-rocket if there is no prevention plan put into place soon.
- Every 68 seconds a person gets diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.
- It’s the 6th leading cause of death in America.

4 Pillars of Prevention
Recent research confirms what we have known for some time now: magic bullet drugs are not the final answer in fighting Alzheimer’s. The only effective way to prevent Alzheimer’s, or even slow its progression, at this time in history is by harnessing the power of an integrative medical approach.
Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive, neurodegenerative disease characterized by memory loss and impaired cognition, a decline in ability to perform activities of daily living, and changes in personality and behavior.
The ARPF provides an alternative to the conventional, “magic bullet” drug approach. We believe that you can help yourself, right now, by utilizing a holistic or integrative medical approach, based on the lifestyle tools we advocate. Modern medical research reveals that all of the aspects of the ARPF’s Four Pillars of Prevention Plan, including physical and mental exercise, especially when used together, help build a healthier and stronger brain and memory. You can also review the latest research update in the Research White Paper.
Your support makes it possible for the Alzheimer’s Research & Prevention Foundation to bring help, hope, and healing to millions of people whose lives are forever changed by Alzheimer’s.
The ARPF is participating in breakthrough studies, including the FINGER study at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, as well as UCLA and West Virginia University.
The Memory Quiz can put your mind at ease about misplacing your car keys occasionally, or it can motivate you to consult with your doctor.
