DEC is the subject of this website. He is truly a medical miracle because he is the very first patient on record who has been able to reverse the effects of Alzheimer's Disease. He was a very pleasant 85 years old male at time of death. He was of higher income, higher education (Dentist), and had a history of being very physically active. His dentition was NOT intact - he was missing #29 (lower right), #13 & #14 (upper left) & #8 (upper left). In addition, he has had extensive dental work including two root canals. DEC had reflux disease - with a long and illustrious history of belching. He also had a history of auto-immunity, specifically: PMR, Hypothyroidism, R/A. Not until his dementia began did we start to see early signs of Periodontal Disease. When DEC was allowed to follow the protocols on this website, his condition (medically documented) drastically improved.
As is so often the case when treating with multiple doctors, DEC's own protocols were interrupted by docs who disagreed with his medical assessments - reversing all inroads he'd made.
Near the end of his life, the one drug that was the most effective in reversing his cognitive declines had become ineffective due to resistance (10 times on and off a drug will do that). And sadly, in late 2019, DEC succumbed to the disease. But not before being able to communicate his wish to have his unique brain studied. Presently, we have autopsied the Right hemisphere and have frozen the Left Hemisphere of "The Golden Brain" for future study. DEC's Legacy Lab is presently gearing up to test DEC's protocols with the goal of developing the cure to Alzheimer's Disease.
Anna has been helping DEC find answers to what had been stealing his mind. What started out as being a second set of ears became a full time / part time job of advocating for someone that doctors simply could not diagnose or cure. Her relentless search to find a more compatible diagnosis (and cure) has connected her to researchers across the world. These genius pioneers have graciously shared their own research and thoughts on the topic without hesitation.
Anna received her BA from the University of Minnesota's School of Journalism. https://www.linkedin.com/in/annashelander/
Her role in this journey has now changed from advocating for DEC to chronicling the next step in her father's legacy - helping the University of Minnesota find the Cure for Alzheimer's Disease.
Victoria was 100% along for DEC's journey, and was the last person DEC saw before passing away at our family home. Victoria completed her BS in Psychology with minors in Neuroscience and ChildPsych.
She plans to get her Masters in Psychology and possibly an MD in Neurology. Her role in this journey has been to vet out neuroscience journal articles of relevance to DEC's cognitive decline.
Weston is DEC's second oldest Grandson. West completed his BS in Cellular and Organismal Physiology with a minors in Chemistry and BioChem. https://www.linkedin.com/in/weston-shelander-1634b9126/
His role in this journey is to vet out chemical and biology journal articles of relevance to DEC's cognitive decline.
