TPS-Therapy - Testimonial 9 with Video-Interview

Moderate-grade Alzheimer's dementia at a younger age

Fast action after diagnosis leads to high quality of life

Preliminary remark by Prof. Citak:

The couple Mike and Janet from Groningen, Holland, is a very good example that Transcranial Pulse Stimulation, used as soon as possible, can lead to quite excellent results. This can be explained by the fact that the more neuronal networks are still present in the brain, the more the TPS can naturally activate and regenerate. Even though Mike had to wait years for the final diagnosis of Alzheimer’s dementia due to his statistically young age, when neurology initially looked for other possible diseases (the patient was initially thought to have a “burn-out”) and the Corona pandemic, I think it was crucial that wife Janet did not want to settle for the statement “there’s nothing you can do“, but actively searched for the latest treatment options that are not yet the general standard. She found TPS very quickly and so treatment could be started shortly after diagnosis.

The results are clear and I thank Mike and Janet for being willing to report this in front of a camera (Video-Interview). This they did now during their vacation in Bavaria and visited Katja C. Schmidt from “Alzheimer Germany”. The initiator and project manager of the information portal “Alzheimer Germany” had herself a case of Alzheimer’s dementia in the family for 10 years and has known the TPS from the very first day, since it could be used in private practices. Since then, the trained journalist and, moreover, herself a developer of another medical-technical form of therapy (not TPS) has been documenting and informing about Transcranial Pulse Stimulation with great commitment and with the utmost conviction, because she knows from her own experience: “What good is the best therapy if you don’t know it?”

The backstory in brief summary:

Mike, an IT specialist at the University of Groningen, Holland, is only 55 years old in 2017 when his wife Janet, work colleagues and social circle notice that something is wrong with Mike. The proven logician becomes forgetful, he can no longer translate his thoughts, he can no longer drive and there is deep sadness within him.

Visits to the doctor are initially of no avail, because at the age of 55 Mike does not fit into the statistical picture of Alzheimer’s disease. So the initial assumption is that the busy IT worker is overworked and probably suffering from burnout. His wife Janet in particular insists intensively with the Dutch doctors and thus, as both report, runs the risk herself of ending up in a clinic as a psychiatric case because of “hysteria”! But she does not give up and in the summer of 2022 Mike is finally examined in a PET-MRI. The diagnosis is clear: Mike has long since been suffering from Alzheimer’s dementia.

The statement of the Dutch neurologist at the diagnosis interview shocks the couple deeply: “There’s nothing you can do about Alzheimer’s, I’ll give you another year and a half with half a lucid mind. Start getting your things together while you still can.

By this time, the disease has Mike comprehensively in its grip. The inner sadness is immense, the simplest things are difficult for him to do, he can partly no longer think clearly and hardly speak. Without Janet he is completely helpless. It is then Janet who decides immediately after the diagnosis that they will not accept the neurologist’s statement. Medicine is making such great progress, there will be other options. So she quickly came across Transcranial Pulse Stimulation in Germany, made extensive inquiries and a few weeks later the initial TPS treatment series was started. Then in February we did a single booster session and now, at the end of May, another three-part booster.

You can see how Mike is doing today in the video. Please note here that Mike and Janet are Dutch and that German is not their native language. It is all the more remarkable that Mike is able to articulate well in our language again. When he speaks Dutch, you don’t even notice that you have an Alzheimer’s patient in front of you.
