What is Mild Cognitive Impairment?

Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is a condition defined by problems with memory, speech, or decision-making that do not rise to the level of significant interference with everyday activities (as compared to Alzheimer’s disease, for example). MCI is formally described as the intermediate stage between the expected cognition decline of aging and dementia, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Fighting MCI?

You have mild cognitive impairment, or someone you care about has been diagnosed with it. According to significant amounts of research published in medical journals, there are actionable measures that may potentially delay or even reverse the progression of MCI.
Please note that there is no “silver bullet” or one miracle tactic or curative drug known at this time. Instead, we have collected a menu of possibilities that may help you. No result is guaranteed, so please discuss any options with your physician.

About MCI911

MCI911 is an information clearinghouse formed to provide news, advice, and research findings that might aid patients in delaying, halting, or even reversing mild cognitive impairment. The “911” in the name indicates urgency.

Conventional medicine dogma is that there is no proven treatment for MCI. However, Dr. Leslie C. Norins, founder of MCI911 explains, “Through medical journal research, I found that is untrue. There are a number of promising compounds already available, both prescription and non-prescription, plus lifestyle adjustments. For each we address, some successes have been reported by reputable researchers.”

Dr. Norins adds, “What the opponents of trying them actually mean is that there has not been the giant, expensive, ‘gold-plated’ field trials paid for by the pharmaceutical companies, that would satisfy the FDA. This is likely because the existing substances are non-patentable and cheap, which means no drug company can justify the expense of clinical trials used for patentable, expensive medicines. So, we decided to step into this vacuum by seeking and distributing research information on available compounds that might be helpful in many cases of MCI.”

All references (with rare exception) must come from “PubMed,” the National Library of Medicine’s online literature retrieval service, usually open only to medical journals requiring peer reviews of research reports prior to publication.

MCI911 is independent, privately held, and not affiliated with, or endorsed by, any other organization, group, or drug company. It is self-funded and does not seek or accept outside donations or grants, nor does it sell any products.

Not a damn thing was being done therapeutically to halt or alleviate Mild Cognitive Impairment before, in many cases, it progressed into Alzheimer’s disease. This is a national disgrace and requires attention. Patients deserve a chance.
