The beauty of following my newly revised Nutrition Plan is that it helps
treat and prevent all chronic degenerative diseases, from the common ones
like heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity and Alzheimer's to the ones you
have never heard of or can't even pronounce. It is divided into three helpful
sections, Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced to help you start at the right
The plan is the first step in addressing Alzheimer's disease. In spite of
how common memory loss is among Westerners, it is NOT a "normal" part of
aging. While even mild "senior moments" may be caused by the same brain
lesions associated with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia,
these cognitive changes are by no means inevitable! People who experience
very little decline in their cognitive function up until their deaths have
been found (post-mortem) to be free of brain lesions, showing that it's
entirely possible to prevent the damage from occurring in the first place…
and one of the best ways to do this is by leading a healthy lifestyle.
Limit fructose. Most people will benefit from keeping their total
fructose consumed below 25 grams per day.
Only use moderate amounts of protein. The featured studies provide
compelling evidence that in most cases you will want to limit your protein to
the levels discussed in the article. Most people consume 200-300 percent more
protein than their body can use and the altered metabolism and metabolic
breakdown products can be pernicious to human health.
Improve your magnesium levels. There is some exciting preliminary
research strongly suggesting a decrease in Alzheimer symptoms with increased
levels of magnesium in the brain. Unfortunately most magnesium supplements do
not pass the blood brain barrier, but a new one, magnesium threonate, appears
to and holds some promise for the future for treating this condition.
Optimize your vitamin D levels with safe sun exposure. Strong links
between low levels of vitamin D in Alzheimer's patients and poor outcomes on
cognitive tests have been revealed.4 Researchers believe that optimal vitamin
D levels may enhance the amount of important chemicals in your brain and
protect brain cells by increasing the effectiveness of the glial cells in
nursing damaged neurons back to health.
Vitamin D may also exert some of its beneficial effects on
Alzheimer's through its anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties.
Sufficient vitamin D is imperative for proper functioning of your immune
system to combat inflammation that is also associated with Alzheimer's.
Keep your fasting insulin levels below 3. This is indirectly related
to fructose, as it will clearly lead to insulin resistance. However other
sugars (sucrose is 50 percent fructose by weight), grains and lack of
exercise are also important factors.
Vitamin B12. According to a small Finnish study recently published in
the journal Neurology,5 people who consume foods rich in B12 may reduce their
risk of Alzheimer's in their later years. For each unit increase in the
marker of vitamin B12 (holotranscobalamin) the risk of developing Alzheimer's
was reduced by 2 percent. Very high doses of B vitamins have also been found
to treat Alzheimer's disease and reduce memory loss.
Eat a nutritious diet, rich in folate, such as the one described in
my nutrition plan. Vegetables, without question, are your best form of
folate, and we should all eat plenty of fresh raw veggies every day.
High-quality animal-based omega-3 fats, such as krill oil. (I
recommend avoiding regular consumption of most fish because, although fish is
naturally high in omega-3, most fish are now severely contaminated with
mercury.) High intake of the omega-3 fats EPA and DHA help by preventing cell
damage caused by Alzheimer's disease, thereby slowing down its progression,
and lowering your risk of developing the disorder.
Coconut Oil may offer profound benefits in the fight against
Alzheimer's disease. One of the primary fuels your brain uses is glucose,
which is converted into energy. When your brain becomes insulin resistant,
atrophy due to starvation can occur. However, ketone bodies, or ketoacids can
also feed your brain, perhaps better, and prevent brain atrophy. It may even
restore and renew neuron and nerve function in your brain after damage has
set in. In fact, ketones appear to be the preferred source of brain food in
patients affected by diabetes or Alzheimer's.
Ketones are what your body produces when it converts fat (as opposed
to glucose) into energy, and a primary source of ketone bodies are the medium
chain triglycerides (MCT) found in coconut oil.
Astaxanthin is a natural pigment with unique properties and many
clinical benefits, including some of the most potent antioxidant activity
currently known. As a fat-soluble nutrient, astaxanthin readily crosses your
blood-brain barrier. One study6 found it may help prevent neurodegeneration
associated with oxidative stress, as well as make a potent natural "brain
Eat plenty of blueberries. Wild blueberries, which have high
anthocyanidin and antioxidant content, are known to guard against Alzheimer's
and other neurological diseases.
Gingko biloba: Many scientific studies have found that Ginkgo biloba
has positive effects for dementia. Gingko, which is derived from a tree
native to Asia, has long been used medicinally in China and other countries.
Sixteen years ago, in one of the first issues of my newsletter, I posted the
results of a 1997 study from JAMA that showed clear evidence that Ginkgo
improves cognitive performance and social functioning for those suffering
from dementia. Research since then has been equally promising. One study in
2006 found Gingko as effective as the dementia drug Aricept (donepezil) for
treating mild to moderate Alzheimer's type dementia. A 2010 meta-analysis
found Gingko biloba to be effective for a variety of types of dementia.
Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) can help stabilize cognitive functions among
Alzheimer's patients and may slow the progression of the disease.
Avoid and remove mercury from your body. Dental amalgam fillings,
which are 50 percent mercury by weight, are one of the major sources of heavy
metal toxicity, however you should be healthy prior to having them removed.
Once you have adjusted to following the diet described in my optimized
nutrition plan, you can follow the mercury detox protocol and then find a
biological dentist to have your amalgams removed.
Avoid aluminum, such as antiperspirants, non-stick cookware, vaccine
Exercise regularly. It's been suggested that exercise can trigger a
change in the way the amyloid precursor protein is metabolized,7 thus,
slowing down the onset and progression of Alzheimer's. Exercise also
increases levels of the protein PGC-1alpha. Research has also shown that
people with Alzheimer's have less PGC-1alpha in their brains8 and cells that
contain more of the protein produce less of the toxic amyloid protein
associated with Alzheimer's. I would strongly recommend reviewing the Peak
Fitness Technique for my specific recommendations.
Avoid flu vaccinations as most contain both mercury and aluminum,
well-known neurotoxic and immunotoxic agents.
Challenge your mind daily. Mental stimulation, especially learning
something new, such as learning to play an instrument or a new language, is
associated with a decreased risk of Alzheimer's. Researchers suspect that
mental challenge helps to build up your brain, making it less susceptible to
the lesions associated with Alzheimer's disease.
Avoid anticholinergic and statin drugs. Drugs that block
acetylcholine, a nervous system neurotransmitter, have been shown to increase
your risk of dementia. These drugs include certain nighttime pain relievers,
antihistamines, sleep aids, certain antidepressants, medications to control
incontinence, and certain narcotic pain relievers.
Statin drugs are particularly problematic because they suppress the
synthesis of cholesterol, deplete your brain of coenzyme Q10 and
neurotransmitter precursors, and prevent adequate delivery of essential fatty
acids and fat-soluble antioxidants to your brain by inhibiting the production
of the indispensable carrier biomolecule known as low-density lipoprotein.
