Five ways to protect yourself from Alzheimer’s
#1) Avoid processed foods
Many processed foods are loaded with nitrates and neurotoxins like MSG and aspartame that have been linked to Alzheimer’s. Processed foods also contain toxins like trans-fats and refined sugar that compromise your health. Stick with whole, organic foods and your Alzheimer’s risk will be significantly reduced.
#2) Install a home water filter
Municipal tap water systems are treated with chlorine, fluoride and other chemicals that harm your health. These chemicals are easily absorbed by your skin when you take a shower or drink unfiltered tap water. (Does anybody really do that anymore?) A whole-house activated carbon filtration system will remove many or all of these toxins from tap water.
#3) Detoxify on a regular basis
I can’t stress enough how important it is to eat foods and supplements that help your body remove chemicals and heavy metals. Dr. Klinghardt’s extensive study with neurological conditions has proven Cilantro, chlorella and spirulina are a few top choices that can help your body eliminate heavy metals like aluminum and mercury — both of which are strongly associated with Alzheimer’s.
#4) Exercise regularly
Both physical and mental exercise. Physical exercise directly contributes to increased brain function because it reinforces neural connections in your brain, which in turn improves memory and learning capability. Mental exercises such as working on crossword puzzles will also help to keep your cognitive function in top shape.
#5) Eat plenty of super-foods and nutritional supplements
There’s a lot that belongs in this category, so I’ll highlight some of the primary superfoods that recent studies have found play a role in preventing Alzheimer’s.
Stress and excito-toxins like MSG can cause brain tangles that are believed to cause cognitive decline, but Acetyl-L-Carnitine effectively stops the process. Acetyl-L-Carnitine is found naturally in grass-fed meats, nuts, beans, legumes, vegetables and fruits. It can also be purchased as a nutritional supplement.
Curcumin, a natural phyto-chemical found in the turmeric spice, has been found to treat and prevent Alzheimer’s.
Alzheimer’s is preventable
To sum it all up, you don’t have to give in to the fatalistic views of the mainstream sick-care industry which believes there is no way to prevent disease (other than drugs, of course). To arrive at such a conclusion, you’d have to nearly lose your mind and forget about all the supporting evidence showing how super-foods and lifestyle changes can not merely prevent Alzheimer’s Disease but actually help reverse it!
