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.

Hungry and Angry! Dr. Russell Blaylock explains “How Hypoglycemia Affects Behavior”

Have you watched a child stop acting out once they have eaten? Please click the link below.

About a third of the population suffers from a condition called reactive hopoglycemia, which occurs when consumption of simple sugars – specially as liquids – precipitates an overstimulation of pancreatic insulin release that in turn drives the blood sugar to dangerously low levels.

During these spells, the brain is operating on a very low glucose supply and the brain secretes increasing amounts of glutamate and asparate. This is why someone feels so hyperactive, and even angry, when hungry. … (There is) dramatic improvement in behaviour once they have eaten.

Dr. Blaylock serves on the editorial staff of the Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association and on the editorial board of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons. He has written two books: 1. The Taste That Kills, which demonstrated the links between food additive and degenerative diseases.  2. Health and Nutrition Secrets that can save your life.

Ketosis – Dr. Phinney tells us to maintain a low carb diet for a long time.

I was surfing looking for more Ketogenic advice.  I found this easy to understand video.  In it Dr. Phinney gives us Tips for maintaining low carb for a long time (Video 25 min. mark):

  1. Filling up with fat. Choose saturated and monounsaturated fats primarily.
  2. Keep the carbs low.
  3. Keep yourself at a range where you stay in nutritional ketosis, which allows the body to have a free flow of fat fuel to all organs in the body. To satisfy oneself by the moderate protein, high fat and

  5. Emphasize those that have not have high monounsaturated like olive oil or high oleic safflower or possibly even canola oils.
  6. Then eat a variety of if you wish for taste and for variation, eat a variety of low carbohydrate vegetables and I even in my 25 to 50 grams of carb intake per day
  7. I find room for berries if I have a hundred grams of blueberries or raspberries or blackberries. I have that with cream makes a delicious dessert and so that one can have even a small amount of berry fruit in in the daily diet and that gives a opportunity for excellent variety.

BOOK: The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living, who should read this book. https://www.amazon.com/Art-Science-Low-Carbohydrate-Living-ebook/dp/B005CVV2AE

Dr. Phinney explains that originally when Dr. Volek (co-author from University of Connecticut) and he were writing it (the book), we realized that most physicians have no major background in nutrition and so we found ourselves writing in it the entry level for a well-educated smart person, but somebody who hadn’t had previous coursework in nutrition.

Genetics does not have to dictate my health.

Hello, my name is Lydia. I believe the best way to predict my future is to create it. To do that, I make it a habit to improve my health.

My goal is to maximize my physical performance and mental clarity, body composition, and most importantly my overall health with a wholesome diet and exercise.

Why am I so concerned, you may ask. My motivation came from watching my mother suffer from numerous illnesses. Her life was regulated by when she had to take her drugs.

I have been retired for a while and I have yet to experience any of her illnesses. I attribute that to eating a wholesome diet and exercise.

I supplement that with Prodity-5, which contains high-quality vitamins, minerals that are absorbed up to 70% more than current vitamins and mineral supplements.

I am a ForeverGreen Independent Distributor. To learn more about Prodigy-5, please go to http://lpolstra.fgxpress.com/#/fgx/prodigy5  OR email lpolstra@sympatico.ca OR call 416-428-5285

In my posts, I focus on two diets: the Ketogenic (Low-Carb /Atkins) and GAPS (Gut and Psychology / Physiology Syndrome) diets.

My exercise of choice is Dr. Doug McGuff’s Super Slow High-Intensity Exercise Program that I do for 15 minutes, once a week.

Please join me as I explore the latest and compelling studies on both subjects.
