Alzheimer’s is a debilitating degenerative brain disorder, and one we at Innovative Medicine wanted to demystify and share some unique insight into. Starting with the question, “what causes the brain to ‘age’?“, we turned to Dr. Thomas K. Szulc for the answers and interesting new discoveries on this subject.
Taken from a series of lectures (“Brain Disorders & Neurological Conditions”), this video discusses the role of free radicals, nutrition and diet, heavy metal toxicity, and the various advanced integrative therapies available for Alzheimer’s disease.
What Causes the Brain to Age?
All degenerative brain diseases share the same event: a massive production of free radicals over a long period of time and a depletion of the body’s antioxidant defenses. A follow up question to this should be, why do we have such a high level of free radicals? The answer, as explained in the video above, is toxins.
“Free radicals are highly reactive submicroscopic particles that bounce around inside cell like red-hot BBs, burning everything they touch and damage the cells.” Dr. Blaylock
Nutrition’s Role in Alzheimer’s Disease
More and more studies are showing that patients with Alzheimer’s disease have nutritional deficiencies of:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin B1, B6, and B12
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin D3
In addition, high levels of homocysteine and cholesterol have been connected to heart attacks, strokes and Alzheimer’s dementia. In one study entitled the Zutphen Elderly Study, it was shown that an American diet high in fat increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease by 240%; an American diet high in red meat increased it by 300%; and a diet high in fish consumption reduced the risk by 60%.
