ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE AND MENTAL STIMULATION

Good Morning North State!

According to the medical journal Neuron in March 2013, Alzheimer's disease is thought to result from the build up of amyloid beta protein in the brain. This protein can interfere with nerve cell communication, gradually eroding a person's mental processes and memory. Regular, prolonged exposure to a mentally stimulating environment appears to prevent amyloid beta proteins from negatively affecting the brain's inner workings.

Four other things are recommended to prevent and treat this brain decaying condition.  1) If you or someone you know may be developing alzheimer's, see your physician right away for a vitamin B12 shot.  8% of alzheimers sufferers will snap out of it right away as it can be caused partially by a B12 deficiency. 2) Consume adequate amounts of omega 3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA).  You want to consume at least 3g or 3000 mg/day and take with a multivitamin.  Your brain is made 2/3 of these fats and it would be wise to supplement with them.  Additionally consider getting off your cholesterol lowering meds (statins) as the other 1/3 of the brain is made of cholesterol.  3) Get exercise.  Moving your body stimulates joint receptors that feed information to the brain via the  cerebellum.  Steven Hawking has largely kept himself alive past the 13 year old deadline doctors gave him because he has a full time nursing staff to help him move his joints to help his genius brain.  4)  The biggest and most significant finding in Alzheimer's research has shown that copper leaching from our old pipes is likely the biggest cause of Alzheimer's.  Have your copper pipes replaced, keep it out of your diet, and even watch your supplements to be sure they are not loaded with copper.

 Good information that you should really share with everyone!  Have a blessed day.
