Alzheimer's Disease Overview

submitted by: admin on 10/20/2019
  Alzheimer's disease (AD) is like an electrical "brown out" that develops as energy production of the hippocampal region of the brain begins to fail and atrophies. Nutritional programs make it possible to resuscitate some mitochondrial energy production and either stabilize or improve symptoms.  Drugs are not a good solution...

submitted by: admin on 05/12/2015
  Alzheimer's disease (AD) is like an electrical "brown out" that develops as energy production in certain brain cells begins to fail. Using nutritional tools makes it possible to resuscitate mitochondrial energy production and either stabilize or improve symptoms. Drugs are of known minimal value and they also have plenty of side...

Can Anti-anxiety Drugs Cause Alzheimer's Disease

submitted by: admin on 05/24/2016
Scientists from Canada and France published in the May 2015 issue of The Lancet that the use of benzodiazopines was linked to an increased risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.

Cholesterol

submitted by: admin on 02/19/2015
Cholesterol is related to but not the direct cause of arteriosclerosis, heart disease, and strokes. We cannot live without cholesterol, we must have it to make cell membranes, vitamin D, many hormones, and bile salts. Yet it is related to heart disease. In general, the higher the cholesterol the worse the risk for heart disease. But it is not the total that is...

Drug Treatment for Alzheimer's Disease is Lacking

submitted by: admin on 05/24/2016
Drugs developed to treat Alzheimer's disease produce only fleeting memory improvements and do not slow the overall course of the disease. Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors such as Aricept, Razadyne, and Exelon and NMDA receptor inhibitors such as Namenda have very limited value. There is a new experimental drug called J147 that at least in mice enhances...

General Anesthesia Can Cause Dementia

submitted by: admin on 09/22/2013
  An article in Annals of Neurology in February of 2012 showed that in mice the anesthetic Forane caused impaired cognitive function that were much like the changes in Alzheimer's disease.

Hearing is Selective

submitted by: admin on 09/22/2013
  A study published in Psychological Science in August of 2013 documented that we focus our hearing on familiar voices over those of strangers. We also can ignore familiar voices better...just ask my wife, Vicki! Sometimes we can hear but we don't listen. As we age hearing becomes more of a challenge and in people with Alzheimer's...

Indications of Alzheimer's Disease is Evident 20 Years Before Dementia

submitted by: admin on 10/09/2013
  Biochemical signs of Alzheimer's Disease are reflected by the brain's limited capacity to metabolize glucose occur 20 years prior to the memory and cognitive defects we associate with the clinical disease. A shortage of ATP (energy) in the brain eventually leads to an electrical brown out manifested by recent memory loss and cognitive defects...

Melatonin and Exercise Help in Alzheimers Disease

submitted by: admin on 05/24/2016
  Research from Barcelona on mice with genetic predisposition for Alzheimer's Disease showed that a combination of melatonin and exercise lowered their risk for developing the disease.

Nutrients that Improve Memory in Alzheimer's Disease

submitted by: admin on 05/24/2016
  MIT studies have shown that a combination of choline, uridine, and DHA can improve memory in patients with early Alzheimer's disease by stimulating the growth of new synapses. About 40% of patients who consumed this cocktail improved on a test of verbal memory. It does not work on moderate or severe cases. There are several other approaches...

Osteoporosis News: Calcium Deficiency May Not Be the Cause

submitted by: admin on 10/12/2013
Manganese deficiency could mean that calcium cannot stick to bone and cause osteoporosis. This can happen in the presence of sufficient calcium in the body. Manganese is extracted from bone when there are unmet needs for it in the brain, kidney, liver, and pancreas. Manganese deficiency could also play a role in Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease,...

Parkinson's and Alzheimer's Diseases and the Failure of ATP Production

submitted by: admin on 05/28/2016
Parkinson's disease is not cured by any treatments we have today. Treatment is centered on blocking the symptoms of this chronic disease. There is a failure of energy production in vital areas of the brain that make dopamine. The energy producing part of the cell, the mitochondria, don't make enough energy to make dopamine and Parkinson's disease...
