No drug can really help with memory loss, dementia, or alzheimer’s. But there are natural therapies that can!
“The gene theory of disease headlines are dramatic and puzzlingly high tech. The public is becoming hoodwinked into believing that frail and flawed genes are programming us all for disease and destruction. And if you think that medicine today is high‐tech or expensive, you ain’t seen nothing yet! Despite the fact that most studies shoot the gene theory full of holes, you are continually being brainwashed into believing that new ‘gene scientists’ are going to solve all your health problems. Unfortunately, this is just not so.”
Health Alert, Vol. 10, No. 1
Millions of seniors are losing their memory every week. It is a sad commentary on our relatively new medical care which is almost entirely invested in drugs, chemicals, and vaccines. Today’s medical mantra is drugs and surgery for everything and nothing but drugs and surgery for anything. Unfortunately this mantra will not help you maintain your memory nor help you get it back once you begin to lose it. In fact, this mantra actually contributes to memory loss in seniors.
Everyone knows that the health and longevity of your memory may be locked up in your genes—your Mom had Alzheimer’s so you may get it. But almost no one knows that your genes are not set in stone. They are routinely altered, activated, and deactivated by your environment—your diet, prescription drugs, toxins, poisons, pollution, pesticides, radiation, heavy metals, vaccines, nutritional deficiencies, relationship and life stresses, etc. These all powerfully affect your genes, and their effects are what is called epigenetics.
Since most medical scientists are keeping you ignorant of epigenetics, the quote I wrote over 20 years ago (at the beginning of this article) is just as true today as it was then. What it means in a nutshell is that you would be much better off to stop worrying about the genes you inherited from your parents and grandparents. And instead worry about your environment and how it might activate dormant but harmful genes. Or how it might damage your genes and turn them against you.
Here is a perfect example. Your Mom ate an abysmal diet, smoked and drank to excess, took every vaccine including a flu shot every year, was prescribed dozens and dozens of prescription drugs throughout her life, and developed Alzheimer’s. You lived with your Mom and developed her same habits. You now worry about getting Alzheimer’s because of your Mom’s genes, while you should be concerned about reversing all your epigenetic bad habits which can influence your genes (just like your Mom’s) to cause Alzheimer’s.
Things That Can Cause Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and Memory Loss—That You Don’t Know About
Unless you know what can hurt you, there is little you can do about it. And that is particularly true with memory loss. For example there are seven things you probably don’t know about that can contribute to memory loss. And more than 75% of all seniors partake of at least one, most seniors use four, five, or even all seven regularly, and most folks don’t even know about their negative effects on memory. They are flu shots, antacids, over‐the‐counter antihistamines like Benadryl, overactive bladder drugs, statin drugs, a low‐fat diet, prescription drugs in general—and especially polypharmacy—where you are prescribed many drugs at the same time, often by different physicians.
1) Flu Vaccine
Flu Shots Could Increase Odds Of Memory Loss
Research out of the University of Kentucky and the Department of Physiology and Biophysics, Faculty of Medicine, University of Calgary shows that mercury and aluminum in flu vaccine can build up in your brain. They are both neurotoxic—meaning they kill brain cells. It is possible that the more flu vaccine shots you get, the greater and greater your odds of developing Alzheimer’s or memory loss will be.
Instead of suffering year after year, use our Colds and Flu Protocol. Read my article “Colds/Flu: How to Prevent and Kill Colds, Flu, Sinusitis, Bronchitis and Pneumonia” on this website, or call my office at 1‐800‐231‐8063 (M‐F, 7‐5 PST) and ask one of my Subscriber Support Specialists to send you our Colds and Flu flyer. This is free for all paid subscribers.
From the very first dose of antacids or acid blockers you take, you are made permanently sick. And this is particularly true for your brain. The reason is simple. Adequate stomach acid (which is blocked with antacids) is necessary to digest food and nutrients, especially protein and B vitamins—which are fuel for your brain. If you interfere with this wonderful mechanism in order to stop heartburn, your stomach could be robbing you of your memory! Instead you need to resolve your stomach indigestion, heartburn, GERD, and the rest naturally.
The first order of business is to make sure you are not suffering from too little stomach acid—a condition that afflicts more than half of all seniors. Too little stomach acid will interfere with your absorption of protein, B vitamins, minerals and more, while at the same time causing heartburn, GERD, and the rest. So if this is you, get a bottle of Zypan® from Standard Process® and take a tablet with a meal. If your heartburn gets worse, you are one of the extremely rare individuals who does have excess stomach acid. But if your heartburn stays the same or gets better, the odds are good that you have insufficient stomach acid. In this case you need to take Zypan® (1 to 4 tablets per meal) for 6 to 9 months. This will help your stomach, help relieve your indigestion, and help your brain.
Anticholinergic drugs have become a way of life for seniors. These are antihistamines, over‐the‐counter sleep aids like Benadryl, allergy medications like chlorpheniramine, and even antidepressants like doxepin and amitriptyline. Many seniors take one or more of these on a daily basis, too often with their physician’s blessing. All these drugs are now known to be major culprits in loss of memory. In fact, the latest medical studies
have uncovered “the strongest evidence yet” that these drugs can cause dementia and memory loss.
Instead of antihistamines, use Allerplex® (4 to 9 capsules daily) from Standard Process®. Use our natural herbal decongestant called Congestion Relief™. And if you have sinus problems, use Sinus Relief™. We have made these available for you here at HealthAlert.com at a discount. Or call my office at 1‐800‐231‐8063 (M‐F, 7‐5 PST) and speak with one of my Subscriber Support Specialists. Stop taking any or all of these drugs on a daily basis. They are epigenetic destroyers of your brain.
4) Overactive Bladder Drugs
Fully more than 50 million Americans suffer from an over active bladder. But who would think that a drug that might help (though they really don’t help very much) your bladder might also help you to lose your mind?! The very common drug Ditropan XL works by “turning off” cholinergic cells in your bladder to dampen its hyperactivity. But your brain also contains cholinergic cells involved in memory. The drug also turns off these cells—key cells in dementia—actually causing memory loss.
And that’s a big problem. It was only recently discovered that the overactive bladder drug Dipropan XL, used widely for over a decade, can cause a ten‐year drop in memory function! This means that 67‐year‐olds were performing like 77‐year‐olds. These findings were presented at the American Urological Association’s annual meeting in Atlanta (2006). Today’s drugs are so powerful, no one really understands everything they can do to you. Too often prescription drugs cause epigenetic problems. But the situation gets even worse with multiple prescriptions and with multiple physicians writing prescriptions.
5) Statin Drugs
These drugs—used to lower cholesterol—have a miserable track record when it comes to causing memory loss. While lots of it is slow and insidious, some individuals have actually experienced sudden and catastrophic memory loss. For some folks, their memory is never the same, even after they stop statin drugs. You must proceed with extreme caution if you are going to be taking these drugs.
Rather you would do well to try to normalize cholesterol naturally before trying to lower your cholesterol levels to ridiculously low levels with drugs. There is very little, if any, benefit from these drugs for close to 99% of those with heart problems. And everyone should use the cardiotonic nutrients first to see if they can normalize their heart function before taking risky drugs. The bonus book you received with your
subscription contains over 40 pages of information about natural heart and cholesterol therapy. And there are several articles on this website. If you can’t figure it all out, feel free to drop me a line and tell me about your particular heart problem. I will personally see that you get the specific information you need. This is still free for paid subscribers.
6) Low‐Fat Diet
The low‐fat diet scam has caused more health problems than almost any other single medical protocol. By replacing healthy fats with lots of carbohydrates, mostly processed, we have nurtured an epidemic of diabetes, obesity, hormonal imbalances, and yes, even memory loss. Without adequate protein to your brain, you will inevitably suffer. A return to a healthy Mediterranean diet with plenty of quality protein, fruits, and vegetables is the way to nourish your brain. Robbing it of the fats and protein it needs to function properly is a recipe for disaster. Skip this medical scam altogether. And finally…
7) Prescription Drugs and Polypharmacy
Prescription Drugs Are A Major Cause
Of Memory Loss
There is no doubt that prescription drugs are a major cause of memory loss. This is a basic fact—all you need do is pick up a Drug Handbook or go online and look up the hundreds and hundreds of drugs that cause memory loss. The fact that prescription drugs are the greatest cause of memory loss in this country is no longer disputable. A prescription for one drug or even two may not be too bad. But no medical
scientist even understands the potential damage to your memory from three or more drugs. And this is common today as the average oldster is taking from 4, 5, even up to 10 drugs at once, many with memory loss as a side effect, and remarkably many as treatment for memory loss!
Today polypharmacy is a disaster. It is an end product of the medical mantra, drugs and surgery for everything and nothing but drugs and surgery for anything. This needs to come to a halt. And even if it doesn’t stop in the world of mainstream medicine, at least you can stop it in your world—and save your memory at the same time.
How to Prevent and Treat Memory Loss, Dementia, and Alzheimer’s
There are no drugs that really help with memory loss, dementia, and Alzheimer’s. Some of the drugs for these conditions cause horrific side effects, often turning the victim psychotic. But there are some natural therapies that can help. Here are the main ones you need to know about in order to prevent or treat your own memory loss.
- Exercise: Just about all experts agree that the single most effective treatment against memory loss is exercise. At the very least—and especially if you are trying to prevent memory loss, or if you are in the early phase of memory loss—a hard daily walk, at least 4 to 5 times a week, is powerful therapy. This will provide more oxygen to your brain, help keep you aware, and improve the way your body utilizes proteins. When just about nothing medicine has can help with memory loss, exercise is safe, effective, simple, and free.
- RNA: Ribonucleic acid (RNA) is critical to memory. It aids your body to utilize protein, upon which your brain depends. If your body is low in RNA, your protein will not be utilized properly to feed your brain. Some will accumulate in your blood, causing other problems. If you are having the beginnings of memory loss and you also have cold hands and feet, you must suspect an RNA deficiency. The excess protein in your blood can interfere with the circulation to your brain. You can have your blood tested for protein levels, but an even simpler test would be to supplement with Ribonucleic Acid (3 to 9 tablets daily). If your circulation improves, continue with RNA therapy for a year. It will also help you improve thyroid function. This real RNA supplement comes from a special yeast extract and is made by Standard Process®.
- Cod Liver Oil (CLO): The major omega‐3 fatty acid nutrition, combined with vitamin A and D complexes, is food for your brain. If you’re like me, your grandma would tell you to eat fish to feed your brain. It was true, and CLO is even better. Take Blue Ice™ Fermented Cod Liver Oil (3 to 6 capsules daily) for 6 to 12 months and judge your response. Combine CLO therapy with RNA therapy.
- B Vitamins: Real B vitamins (not made synthetically) are the building blocks of your brain. If you are showing signs of memory loss, you must first make sure your stomach is digesting your B vitamins, then supplement with real, whole, raw B vitamin complexes. In this case use Cataplex® B and Cataplex® G, both from Standard Process®. Cataplex® B contains the “excitatory” portion of the B complex, more involved with energy and tone, while Cataplex® G contains the relaxing portion of the B complex, more involved in calming, normalizing blood pressure, and keeping you in balance. We generally recommend 4 tablets of each for 6 to 12 months.
- Coconut Oil: This particular form of oil has an affinity for healthy brain function. Many people with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and memory loss have had major brain improvements rather quickly when they start taking two tablespoons of raw coconut oil daily. We recommend Organic Coconut Oil. It is available at a discount here at HealthAlert.com. Six to 12 months is a good time period to test coconut oil therapy.
The Amazing Curcumin Breakthrough: Quite simply, it has been discovered that activated curcumin from turmeric root has reversed memory loss, dementia, and Alzheimer’s in 100% of study subjects within an 18 month period. It has also stopped 100% of pre‐diabetic patients from progressing to type 2 diabetes. And it also has a dramatic positive effect on inflammation and chronic pain. Please see my article, “Alzheimer’s, Memory Loss, Dementia, Diabetes, Chronic Pain, Heart/Blood Vessel Disease, and The Amazing Curcumin Breakthrough” on this website. Activated curcumin is found in the product, Turmeric Forte.
Memory loss, dementia, and Alzheimer’s are not predestined in your genes. If all sufferers were to eliminate all the epigenetic factors in this article, then apply the simple, safe, and natural approaches to healthy brain therapy, we would see fantastic results. Use this information to help your brain and to help your loved ones. These problems are not hopeless, and they must be addressed at the epigenetic level. Their causes are just as
important as their treatments, and unfortunately too many people have no idea about either.
Treatment of the symptoms of disease will almost always fail to help you truly resolve your health problems. For that reason, none of the treatments/protocols in this article are intended to treat any disease or condition. Rather, they are designed to treat you. You will be shown how to identify, address, treat, and/or eliminate the underlying causes of your health problems—giving you the opportunity to finally get well and even cure yourself.
