Alzheimer's Disease
By Steven Horne, RH (AHG) & Kimberly Balas, ND

According to the Center For Disease Control
"Alzheimer's disease is perhaps the most common form of dementia, although several others exist. Alzheimer's disease is a progressive disease of the brain.

In the early stages
, people experience some memory loss which progresses to marked memory loss, then to a decrease in thinking ability such as decision making. Later the disease leads to the loss in the ability to perform activities of daily living or recognize loved ones. The changes in the brain that often mirror the decline in thinking are the development of plaques and tangles in the brain. These changes may begin in areas of the brain associated with memory, but later spread more widely throughout the brain. The plaques and tangles can lead to a gradual loss of connections between brain cells and eventually cell death.

Alzheimer's disease usually occurs in individuals who are 60 years old and older.
Starting at age 65, the risk of developing the disease doubles every five years. By age 85 years and older, between 25 and 50 percent of people will exhibit signs of Alzheimer's disease. Up to 5.3 million Americans currently have Alzheimer's disease. By 2050, the number is expected to more than double due to the aging of the population. Alzheimer's disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States and is the fifth leading cause among persons age 65 and older.

There are a number of studies that suggest behaviors that might lessen the risk of developing the disease.
Among these are increasing physical activity, having a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, maintaining social engagement, and participating in intellectually stimulating activities.

Some studies suggest that the prevention of diseases that damage blood vessels such as heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes may also lessen the risk of Alzheimer's disease."



Most of the remedies listed below are more for prevention than they are for a cure.

Most herbal and nutritional remedies will slow the progress of Alzheimer's, but may not completely halt or reverse the progress of the disease.

High levels of aluminum have been found in the brains of Alzheimer's patients, but most experts now agree this is not a cause of the disease.

However, it is still wise to protect the body from this heavy metal by avoiding aluminum cook-ware, especially when preparing acidic foods like tomatoes.

Also avoid antiperspirant deodorants that contain compounds and baking powder with aluminum.


To prevent Alzheimer's
* Eat good fats and avoid bad fats.
* Minimize exposure to alcohol, tobacco and environmental toxins.
* Eat generous servings of fresh fruits and vegetables every day.
* Keep your brain active as it seems to increase its vitality and may build its reserves of brain cells and connections.
* Stay curious and involved. Read, write, work crossword or other puzzles.
* Attend lectures and plays.
* Enroll in courses at your local adult education center, community college or other community group.
* Play games.
* Try memory exercises.


Once Alzheimer's has started
1. Antioxidants can slow deterioration.
2. Mind-Max or Brain Protex may be helpful in enhancing cognitive function in Alzheimer's patients.
3. It may also be helpful to improve circulation to the brain and chelate toxic metals by doing an Oral Chelation program.



Therapies Suggested: Heavy Metal Detoxification and Oral Chelation program

We strongly recommend to call us so that we can help you select the right product(s) based on what we shall hear from you (age, symptoms etc.)
Also make sure to consult with your Medical Doctor to follow progress etc.



 
Heavy Metal Detox

Scientists estimate that over 50 percent of U.S. residents have too much heavy metal in their bodies.
These metals, which include lead, mercury, aluminum, cadmium and arsenic, are found in industrial byproducts as well as in tainted drinking water, pesticides and even things as common as dental fillings and cooking utensils.
Heavy Metal Detox is a potent detoxification support product designed to bind with and remove heavy metals in the body.
This formula also supports the liver and its efforts to cleanse, detoxify and replenish the body with essential minerals.
The key ingredient, cilantro, appears to decrease the level of heavy metals in the body and increase their levels in the urine. 
   
  N-Acetyl Cysteine
This combination is essential for the body to mount a defense against free radicals, and it supports the natural elimination of harmful toxins. This nutrient is a precursor to glutathione, one of the body's most powerful antioxidants.
Consequently, N-Acetyl Cysteine can step up the body's own efforts to combat oxidative stress and damage.
N-Acetyl Cysteine protects healthy cells against damage from oxidative stressors.
Its principal benefits include protecting the liver, maintaining blood pressure levels already in the normal range and protecting the skin and eyes.
   
  TurmericTurmeric/Curcumin
Benefits:
  • Superior potency and delivery of the antioxidant-rich turmeric extract
  • Supports the body's healthy inflammatory response
  • Supports the joint, skin, brain and gut health
  • Supports immune system function
  • May promote healthy microbiome balance
  • Black pepper extract improves bioavailability and absoprtion
  • 1000 mg Curcuminoids
 
  Brain-Protex w/ Huperzine
Significantly improves memory and age-related brain changes including depression in the elderly.
Lycopene and alphalipoic acid are powerful antioxidants that can pass the blood-brain barrier to protect brain cells from destructive free radicals.
Rhododendron caucasicum is also a potent free radical quencher. It has been used for decades by longevity enthusiasts.
Ginkgo improves the integrity of blood vessels. Its benefits are experienced most in improved peripheral circulation including the head area.
It can sometimes delay or reverse mental deterioration such as during the onset of senile dementia.



The "3 Essentials"
(For most common health issues: visit this page)

1. Our very existence is dependent upon the body's ability to utilize minerals because minerals activate enzymes! More about minerals
2. Digestive Enzymes: If food is not digesting properly, it creates waste that builds up downstream in the colon... an open door to toxicity & diseases! More Info
3. Probiotics: "Friendly gut bacteria play a crucial role in preventing diseases, from cancer to obesity". Dr. Robynne Chutkan M.D. More info
