Be Proactive — You can avoid Alzheimer’s
Once again I am borrowing from Dr Mercola. This time it is a fantastic interview between Dr Mercola and one of the most prominent Neurologists in today’s world by the name of David Perlmutter, M.D.. He and Dr Mercola spoke at length of his latest book which is simply called “THE GRAIN BRAIN” which of course gives one a clue to the message.
Dr Perlmutter’s message is simple, clear and lays out the fairly simplistic (non-complicated) manner for anyone who wishes to take action against the enabling of this dreaded disease, Alzheimer’s. His work is well documented and substantial — actually – irrefutable! With so many of us fighting the good fight on this. . . this is a must see. . . (and coconut oil is not mentioned). Jan
How to Prevent Alzheimer’s Disease—A Neurologist Speaks Out
- Alzheimer’s disease is currently at epidemic proportions, with 5.4 million Americans—including one in eight people aged 65 and over—living with it. There is no known cure, and few truly effective treatments
- Research suggests the best hope is in prevention focusing on exercise and diet, specifically replacing carbohydrates with higher amounts of healthful fats, and moderate amounts of high-quality protein
- Gluten sensitivity appears to be involved in most chronic disease, including those affecting the brain, because of how gluten affects your immune system. Glucose and fructose,(sugars) and carbohydrates can also have powerfully toxic effects
- Preventing and treating neurological disorders requires severe restriction of gluten and casein. You also need to address your gut flora
This trendy food is adept at stalking your brain and turning you into an Alzheimer’s magnet… a disease with no cure or effective treatment. Yet here are research-proven rules to keep your brain healthy and fully functional, well into old age.
