CONDITIONS WE HELP TREAT
Alzheimers & Dementia
According to one neurology professor, “Alzheimer’s is going to swamp the health care system”.
The medical community has had a hard
time making a difference in treating
progressive brain impairment, such as
Alzheimer's and Dementia, but natural
therapies have been found to prevent the
onset of symptoms, delay the progression
of mental decline and improve quality
Before I dive into the current natural
support for Alzheimer's and other
mental decline conditions, I would like
to describe my personal heart breaking
story of brain decline. About a year ago
my own father started showing signs of
Dementia. He had a failing short term
memory, mild paranoia, and difficulty
communicating with his family.
However, after just 2 months under my care, he is about 50% better. He is now communicating with us better, his paranoia is dramatically less, and his memory is better than he had one a year ago.
How did this happen to my father and the other 7.7 million new cases each year?
Natural Solutions to Support Alzheimers and Dementia
A. Reduce the Load of Toxic Metals on the Body- Many people are unaware that silver amalgam in teeth fillings contains 50 percent mercury. The research in
Peer-reviewed journal articles show that this mercury off-gasses, crosses the blood-brain barrier, and creates the neurofibrillary tangles associated with Alzheimer’s.
B. Coconut Oil- Medical researchers from the Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. John's, NL, Canada,, reported significant improvements in Alzheimer's disease patients after 45 and 90 days of treatment with medium chain triglycerides from coconut oil.
C. Ketogenic Diet- The ketogenic diet (KD) is a low carbohydrate, high fat diet which decreases blood glucose and elevates blood ketones and has been shown to slow mental decline progression in animals and humans.
D. Reduce Stress- Stress increases cortisol levels, which often lead to inflammation and hormone imbalance. These in turn can lead to memory and cognitive impairment. This was one of the major issues with my father that lead to his mental decline.
D. Exercise Everyday- Recently, studies using the rat animal model found that the pups of mothers who exercised during pregnancy had increased hippocampal neurogenesis and better memory and learning abilities.
“The basic fact is that one third of our economy profits from making people sick and fat. The food industry sells products scientifically proven to kill more people than cigarettes, while our health care industry profits from providing more volume of care focused on medication and procedures, not better health.”

The standard American diet (the SAD diet) and chronic stress is believed to be the major contributing factor behind Alzheimer's and Dementia.
Many medical circles are now calling Alzheimer's and Dementia, Type III diabetes of the brain. We already know that diabetics are at least twice as likely to experience Dementia. The cells of your brain can become insulin-resistant just like other cells in the body. What was once considered a mysterious accumulation of beta amyloid plaques in the Alzheimer brain is now associated with the same lack of insult sensitivity that negatively affects brain cells.
