Older people suffer far greater damage from strokes, head injuries, and infections than younger people, because the aging of the brain will damage the cells that support the central nervous system.

 

It may also be why they develop diseases that destroy cells that connect to the nervous system and the muscles.

 

Cells that support the central nervous system are chronically affected by any infection, vaccination, or exposure to a source of inflammation that causes their nervous systems to degenerate much faster.

 

As we age our antioxidant network is less efficient, putting us at a higher risk of damage from free radicals and cell damage.

 

Our detoxification systems are often impaired as well, and this makes us more susceptible to a number of environmental toxins as well as drug complications.

 

Finally, immune deficiency is common and increases one’s risk of autoimmune diseases, cancer, chronic inflammation and infections as well as making it difficult to cure infections. This immune deficiency can damage the cells that support the central nervous system which can lead to developing Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Huntington’s, Parkinson’s, etc.

You asked, what can I do about it?

You can reduce your chances buy combing exercise with a healthy diet with plenty of vegetables and fruits. Supplement with vitamin E and C, flavonoids (from plants), selenium, copper, zinc, and manganese.

Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and ALS are separate diseases, but they share the characteristics of deteriorating brain function, a long development period, and no cure by traditional medicine.

I watched a documentary on Alzheimer’s the other night. My curiosity lead me re-read the relevant chapters in two of Dr. Russell Blaylock’s books.
Book 1. Dr. Blaylock’s Prescription for Natural Healing.   It is meant for the average person to understand. Here is a link to the book:
I learned: Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and ALS are separate diseases, but they share the characteristics of deteriorating brain function, a long development period, and no cure by traditional medicine. When researchers examined what increased the risk of these disorders, they found that all had two things in common:
• They increase brain inflammation .
• They trigger very harmful overstimulation of cells in the brain and nervous system.
Book 2. Health and Nutrition Secrets than can save your life, is a book that a doctor or someone who wants to understand more.Here is a link to the book:
Here is a little of what I learned: Most neurological diseases do not become obvious until about 75 percent of brain cells in the affected area have died; the surviving 25 percent are extremely sick and cannot function normally, which is why treating neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s dIsease, Parkinson’s disease and Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) is so difficult. By the time such a disease becomes clinically evident, there just isn’t much left for doctors to work with.
Fats and the Brain: While vitamins and minerals are critical for proper brain function of equal importance is a group of fats called omega-3 fatty acids. These polyunsaturated fats  are composed of two very Important components, EPA  and DHA, which play a particularly important part in brain function and health.
Unfortunately because of food-processing methods and industrial raising of animals as meat sources, most omega-3 fatty acids have been removed from our foods.    …. By maintaining a low intake of Omega·6 fats and a higher intake of Omega-3 fats, you can significantly improve the function of your brain and reduce the risk of developing  diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Repairing the Damage:  … the evidence seems to indicate that it (DNA) plays a significant role in development of the disease.
Melatonin and curcumin enhance production of repair enzyme, whIch then aid in repair of pre-existing DNA damage. When DNA is functioning properly, it can give the cell the information it needs to make repairs as well.
For people at risk there are several supplements were mentioned. I was particularly interested in: Acetyl-L-carnitine, CoQ10, alpha-lipoid acid and DHA which can repair membrane damage and return fluidity to this vital cellular component.
If you would like the full list, please let me know.
We all have one life. Let’s make the best of it.

Pain! Pain Relief.

Pain!  During renovations, I fell. Thankfully, I did not break anything. But hurts like I did.
Years ago, I would have grabbed the Advil (ibuprofen).
Why not now? Because of the side effects. 
The most common side effects from ibuprofen are rashringing in the earsheadaches, dizziness, drowsiness, abdominal painnauseadiarrheaconstipation and heartburn
 
Lately, in my efforts to reduce generalized inflammation I have been taking Turmeric (curcumin) with Carlsen’s Cod Liver oil *.
I tried a good quality turmeric spice with the oil but it does not give me the same relief.
The only thing that works is the turmeric extract that comes in Adeeva’s Natural Pain Relief **.
* Carlsen’s taste good, it comes in lemon or orange flavour. Dr. Russell Blaylock says the oil stimulates the absorption of the turmeric. I agree! It is more effective.
** Adëeva Nutritionals Mississauga  Do not use the phone number on the site. CALL: 1-888-251-1010 ext. 381  http://adeevainfo.com/products/natures_relief
From their website: Nature’s Relief contains the four most powerful anti-inflammatory herbs ever researched, each of which has been shown in clinical trials to reduce pain and swelling in conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, advanced osteoarthritis, as well as other musculoskeletal inflammatory problems.
That is it for now.  I off to rest and get better.

Doctors need to know about the impact evidence-based lifestyle interventions such as diet can have on chronic conditions.

Food is medicine. “Doctors need to know about the impact evidence-based lifestyle interventions such as diet can have on chronic conditions. The healing power of diet has been underplayed and, unlike drugs, doesn’t have side-effects. If it was a pill, any company that manufactured it would make billions because the effect is so good.”

Please share this post if you agree.

Everyone should have options when it comes to health. Read what a doctor would do if he had Cancer.

What this doctor would do, if he had cancer? In this article, he examines the current care and his 5 strategies to beat cancer.

From the article: “The problem is that conventional medicine protocols have a lot wrong when it comes to cancer. We are good at cutting it, burning it, and poisoning it with surgery, radiation, and drugs, but many doctors fail to treat the cause of the cancer.”

“Cancer results from an imbalance in our system where the immune system can’t fight off tumors. We can do many things to prevent that cancer from getting to its full stage, and if you have cancer, you can make your body inhospitable to that cancer.”

This article tells us 5 strategies that doctor would use to treat the cause.
Please copy and paste this link into your address bar:
http://healthycures.org/what-to-do-when-diagnosed-with-canc…

The article suggests treating the cause with the help of Functional Doctors.
The Institute for Functional Medicine has a website that provides a list of doctors. Put in Canada and you will see them.

https://ifm.org/find-a-practitioner/…

I put in Canada and Action (I used “current location”).
They listed 32 doctors. IMF said the doctor may offer phone consultations.

If you find this article informative, please pass it along. People should know that they have an options.

DO YOU HAVE METABOLIC SYNDROME? If you do, learn what you can do about.

Metabolic syndrome is becoming more common due to a rise in obesity rates among adults. In the future, metabolic syndrome may overtake smoking as the leading risk factor for heart disease.
As we are getting older we are at risk of developing heart disease.
Health _ PMC logo.png
Metabolic syndrome is the name for a group of risk factors that raises your risk for heart disease and other health problems, such as diabetes and stroke.
The term “metabolic” refers to the biochemical processes involved in the body’s normal functioning. Risk factors are traits, conditions, or habits that increase your chance of developing a disease.
 
In this article, “heart disease” refers to coronary heart disease (CHD). CHD is a condition in which a waxy substance called plaque builds up inside the coronary (heart) arteries.
 
Plaque hardens and narrows the arteries, reducing blood flow to your heart muscle. This can lead to chest pain, a heart attack, heart damage, or even death.

WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT
Metabolic Effects of the Very-Low-Carbohydrate Diets: Misunderstood “Villains” of Human Metabolism
During very low carbohydrate intake, the regulated and controlled production of ketone bodies causes a harmless physiological state known as dietary ketosis. Ketone bodies flow from the liver to extra-hepatic tissues (e.g., brain) for use as a fuel; this spares glucose metabolism via a mechanism similar to the sparing of glucose by oxidation of fatty acids as an alternative fuel. In comparison with glucose, the ketone bodies are actually a very good respiratory fuel.
Indeed, there is no clear requirement for dietary carbohydrates for human adults. Interestingly, the effects of ketone body metabolism suggest that mild ketosis may offer therapeutic potential in a variety of different common and rare disease states. Also, the recent landmark study showed that a very-low-carbohydrate diet resulted in a significant reduction in fat mass and a concomitant increase in lean body mass in normal-weight men. Contrary to popular belief, insulin is not needed for glucose uptake and utilization in man. Finally, both muscle fat and carbohydrate burn in an amino acid flame.

World Renowned Heart Surgeon Speaks Out On What Really Causes Heart Disease.

Dr. Dwight Lundell is the past Chief of Staff and Chief of Surgery at Banner Heart Hospital , Mesa , AZ. His private practice, Cardiac Care Center was in Mesa, AZ. Recently Dr. Lundell left surgery to focus on the nutritional treatment of heart disease. He is the founder of Healthy Humans Foundation that promotes human health with a focus on helping large corporations promote wellness. He is also the author of The Cure for Heart Disease and The Great Cholesterol Lie.

 

As a heart surgeon with 25 years experience, having performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries, today is my day to right the wrong with medical and scientific fact. I trained for many years with other prominent physicians labelled “opinion makers.” Bombarded with scientific literature, continually attending education seminars, we opinion makers insisted heart disease resulted from the simple fact of elevated blood cholesterol. The only accepted therapy was prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely restricted fat intake. The latter of course we insisted would lower cholesterol and heart disease.

Deviations from these recommendations were considered heresy and could quite possibly result in malpractice.
