Fend-off Alzheimers

7 steps  for an Alzheimer’s-free future

Dr  Jonathan Wright,   Oct 2009

1) Excellent diet: Eat as many organic foods as your budget allows, but be sure to opt for organic coffee and/or tea.

2) Exercise: Try for AT LEAST 30-45 minutes of walking three times a week.

3) Detoxification: Chelation testing and therapy can help you determine and, if necessary, eliminate build-up of toxic         heavy metals in your body. Adding in more strenuous exercise sessions (ones that work up a good sweat) will decrease      your Alzheimer’s risk even further by helping you eliminate other chemicals from your fat cells. If strenuous exercise isn’t possible, far infrared saunas can offer the same detoxification benefits.

4) Turmeric: Use as much of this spice in your own cooking as possible. If you can’t stand the taste, opt for turmeric or curcumin capsules instead (though be forewarned that they are more expensive).

5) Supplements:

  •  Lithium 10 – 20 milligrams a day   (as well as 1 tablespoon of fish oil)
  • . Niacinamide, 50 – 100 milligrams daily if no history of type 2 diabetes;   500 – 1000 milligrams daily if type 2 diabetes does run in your family, or you have it yourself.

6) Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy: This goes for both men and women. Beginning a program to replace the gender-specific hormones your own body isn’t producing as efficiently with bio-identical versions can go a long way in keeping you Alzheimer’s-free

7) Thyroid supplementation: Like BHRT, supplementing with whole thyroid can help keep your cognitive function sharp well into your golden years.

Exercise, healthy organic eating, and using turmeric are all things you can do on your own—starting today. But you will need help with detoxification with chelation, supplementing with lithium, niacinamide, thyroid, and with BHRT. If you aren’t already seeing a a physician skilled and knowledgeable in natural medicine, check the Alternative Health Resources box for a list of organizations that can help you locate one.

(My comment:   S’help me, I dunno how this stuff happens.  I download articles thinking to get back to it and then can’t find it.  Now I have found this and who knows how long its been hiding out!    (sure miss my grand-daughter away at college)  Jan)
