95% of Alzheimer’s disease is not inherited. You do not need to have a family member with Alzheimer’s disease to be at risk of developing dementia as you age. During the past fifteen years, abnormalities in mitochondrial structure and function have been identified as a potential trigger and driver of the Alzheimer’s disease process. No drug treatment has yet been identified that slows or halts AD progression.
I utilize an approach similar to Dr. Dale Bredesen who worked with Nobel laureate Stanley Prusiner’s laboratory and then moved on to perform AD research at UCLA medical school. Dr. Bredesen’s program focuses on reviving brain function through mitochondrial support, improved gut health, hormonal balancing and eliminating environmental toxins.
By delivering a well-studied mitochondrial support program designed to decrease oxidative stress and promote mitochondrial repair, and by simultaneously providing gentle stimulation to the brain, the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease can often be stabilized and improved. We will perform and follow cognitive testing on a quarterly basis to monitor the effects of this treatment. In mild to moderate cases of Alzheimer’s disease, noticeable improvement can often be demonstrated within 3-4 months.
Dr. Jon Kaiser has guided my healing program for a life-challenging illness for close to 20 years now, while also greatly improving my quality of life. When I lived in Los Angeles, I consulted with Dr. Kaiser by phone to make use of his unique combination of natural and conventional medicine. He is keenly aware of the multiple pieces that go into a successful healing program. He looks for the underlying causes of illness, some of which may be missed by other practitioners, and pays close attention to key details that will help you recover.

I have been with Dr. Kaiser now for over 15 years and I can say for sure that he is truly a lifesaver and a game changer. I will never forget when my previous doctor told me that I had a terminal illness. However, from the moment I met Dr. Kaiser, he let me know he would put no limit on my lifetime. Dr. Kaiser not only extended my lifetime, he has also greatly improved its quality.
Working with Dr. Kaiser from out of town has been easy. I flew to see him for the first few visits and since then have had all my appointments by phone. Lab slips are sent to me and I get blood work done and results are sent to Dr. Kaiser and then we have our phone visit, easy as that. Thank you Dr. Kaiser for changing my life forever!

When I first met with you, my entire intestinal system was devastated from intestinal parasites and chronic antibiotic treatment. Your care, attention, knowledge, and the treatments you offered me based on your research, helped me rebuild my whole life.
If I hadn't found you, things could have gone in a really bad direction. As it was, you set me on a gentle and gradual course for recovery that healed my entire life. An unexpected effect of improving my gut health was that the migraines and chronic sinus infections I'd had my whole life completely stopped.
Thank you for how much you helped me and I am so happy that you have returned to private practice. I know that everyone you care for will be very, very lucky.
With love and respect,
