Dr. Saunders’ Easy DETOX Program – For Life!

Strolling through a vitamin aisle or searching on the internet will bring a very wide array of products and services for detoxification.

  • Some are potions of multiple herbs and foods.
  • Some are simple such as vinegar.
  • Diets of all kinds are advocated.
  • Other detox modalities include enemas, saunas, foot pads and so much more!

How do we make sense of all this?

Chemicals are everywhere.  Our air and water are filled with thousands of toxins, even prescription drugs have been found in the water supply.  In some cases, these toxins can build up in our bodies and cause us to feel bad, sick, or just plain yuck. It turns out we don’t always have control over what’s in our air, food and water.

Product Of Our Environment

At age 69, Larry’s neurologist told him he had Alzheimer’s disease.  He was given a drug that was supposed to help him think more clearly, but it didn’t help at all and was told there was nothing else that could be done.  His wife then brought him into my office to see if there was something better than the drugs.  After evaluation, we found the lead in his body was more than 50 times the acceptable level.  We have him a series of chelation therapy treatments to remove the lead and he became normal again, able to think clearly.

The truth is those things that are part of our environment become part of us. We need to be able to use the normal mechanisms of our body to excrete those things that are harmful back into the environment. The process of detoxification has two components: 1) avoiding toxins and 2) getting rid of toxins, which we cannot avoid.

Avoiding Toxins

Larry was a welder, but never wore a mask to filter the metals.  The torch he used vaporized the metals and, as a result, he was breathing them over many years.  Since lead isn’t easily excreted from the body, it built up and became toxic to his brain.

When we are aware of a potential toxin that could be absorbed by our body one way or another, it is important for us to consider the many ways to avoid exposure to that toxin.  Safety officers on every job should try to make the workplace free of toxins.

Anne was a very active interior decorator in her early 50s.  She started getting illnesses frequently. “I catch everything that goes around,” she complained.  Moreover, she was getting more and more fatigued.  She felt achy all over.  The usual tests failed to find a cause of her problems, so she was referred to an environmental medicine specialist.  The doctor found she was reacting to a toxin made by a mold, which was apparently growing in the older house she was renovating.

Avoiding mold is very difficult because it is so prevalent in our environment.  You can’t avoid all toxins, but you can significantly diminish them in your own body.

Those who eat organically-grown foods, for example, have much lower levels of heavy metals, pesticides and chemical fertilizers detectable in their bodies.

There are many chemicals that can be part of our everyday dietAvoiding these is essential to maintaining a healthy metabolism.

  • Both artificial and natural flavorings often contain ketones and aldehydes.
  • Artificial colorings can poison cellular systems.
  • Even common additives such as MSG can be dangerous to some people.  MSG is an excitotoxin on the nervous system.  Those who have adequate supplies of inhibitory neurotransmitters may be spared, but the rest will lose brain cells.
  • One toxin to avoid at all times is artificial sweeteners.  These have multiple toxic effects on the body from neurotoxicity to causing dysbiosis (killing the normal bacteria in the bowels).

Detox Program

Because we are constantly exposed to toxins, both internally and externally, it is important that we maintain a lifetime detox program.  Most detox programs only deal with the liver because it is the primary organ in our body which neutralizes and excretes toxins.  However, just as important in detoxification are the minor players: the intestines, kidneys, lungs, and skin.  We will discuss how to maximize the benefits from each of these systems.

Dr. Saunders’ Personal Alzheimer’s Protection Plan

5 Prevention Techniques to Protect Your Brain Tissue

“I think he has Alzheimer’s disease…” the wife of a man in his seventies began.  Larry was having difficulty concentrating, had problems with memory and wasn’t able to work anymore.  He seemed depressed all the time.  We did some testing and found that all those years of welding had built up a large amount of heavy metals in his body – including lead.  After a series of chelation treatments to “get the lead out” his wife said, “He’s like a teenager!  He smiles again. He’s working, laughing, playing with the grandchildren and…” she leans forward and whispers, “We have sex again.”

Alzheimer’s is a decline in memory and cognition, which means the ability to think. There are many causes of declining mental function, as we noted above. The loss of brain function is not always Alzheimer’s disease.  Unfortunately, most doctors will “diagnose” every old person with dementia as “Alzheimer’s” and not look for any other cause.  It’s important for family members to know that there are many other ways to lose memory and anyone — at any age — with thinking problems needs proper testing to find out why.

This topic is personally important to me because my family moved into the home of my grandparents to take care of my grandfather who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.  It was a very difficult job for four adults to manage his care because he didn’t recognize us, or even his wife of over fifty years.  Now, I’m told I am at an increased risk of having this disease, so I have tried to find how to avoid and prevent it.

Here’s what I’ve learned.

Avoid Inflammation

.

Green Tea is a natural anti-inflammatory. Drink a cup a day — or brew it like sun tea, refrigerate and serve. My favorite is Jasmine Green Tea.


Inflammation comes from our food.  When we eat high-calorie and low-nutrient foods we create inflammation.  These include all processed foods, sweets, starchy foods, and fatty foods. In short, all the things your mom told you to avoid!  Instead, eat high-nutrient, low-calorie foods, such as fresh vegetables, fruit, whole grains, beans, nuts and seeds.

Moreover, we can turn off the genes that produce inflammation by fasting.  One to three days per month of fasting will keep most inflammation at bay.  I know of one patient who was bent over with a genetic arthritis called Ankylosing Spondylitis.  He went to Russia and went on a twenty-day fast that put his disease into complete remission. He is still doing well — as long as he fasts for several days per month.

Detoxify Continually

We can find all sorts of “Detox” or “colon cleanse” programs on the internet, but the best way to keep toxins out is

BrainSustain

Dr. Perlmutter’s BrainSustain, as recommended by Dr. Scott Saunders as an Alzheimer’s Disease Supplement

Nutritional Support for Enhancing Brain Function, Maintaining Memory, and Protecting the Brain

BrainSustain was developed by David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, Board-Certified Neurologist and internationally recognized leader in nutritional neurology. This product is the result of over 30 years of research in the clinical neurosciences. Ingredients used in this formula have been evaluated in extensive clinical studies and have been shown to enhance brain function, maintain memory, and protect the brain from the effects of free radicals.

BrainSustain‘s unique formula enhances brain performance and promotes brain health by improving the energy production of brain mitochondria. It facilitates neural communication, and provides superior antioxidant action that reduces the production and damaging effects of excess free radicals in the brain. This antioxidant action is vital because excess free radicals are associated with brain inflammation – a marker and common thread among such neurodegenerative disorders as poor memory, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, ALS, and others.

Taking BrainSustain is an easy, daily good health habit. Our powder formulas mix with fruit juice or smoothies to become a refreshing and profoundly beneficial beverage – providing the highest level of brain performance enhancing nutrients and powerful brain protection to ensure long term optimal brain performance throughout your life. BrainSustain’s key ingredients have been extensively studied for efficacy at some of the world’s most well respected medical institutions.

BrainSustain is a key part of a complete program to ensure optimal brain function. A healthy diet, physical exercise and mental activity all contribute to achieving and maintaining peak mental performance.

How To Be A Healthy Caregiver

As the American population ages, more and more people each year will be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. Already, there are more than 5 million Americans suffering with Alzheimer’s. The care of these aging individuals falls mostly on the shoulders of their family, and some friends, through the winding maze of this disease, sometimes without ever finding the exit out. Eleven million people are providing unpaid care to support Alzheimer’s patients; care that takes an emotional, physical, and financial toll on family caregivers.

According to a study from New York University:

  • Caregivers are twice as likely as non-caregivers to report physical and mental health complications.
  • One in three caregivers use medication for caregiving-related health problems.
  • Depression among caregivers is three times greater than for non-caregivers in their age group.

If the mind maze of Alzheimer’s wasn’t difficult enough, the stress and toll of caregivers is another layer of the puzzle on top of an already crooked path.

Another study compared the healing process of caregivers and non-caregivers. The two groups were given identical wounds. Caregiver’s wounds took up to 24% longer to heal than non-caregivers. Their immune systems were too stressed to function efficiently.

The stress pile on one caregiver can be daunting. Yet, they keep doing and doing and doing. They keep caring for others and ignoring their own needs. The mantra repeats, “I can do this one more day. Just one more day. And one more day.” Until, after years of self-neglect, caregivers discover the breast lump or have a heart attack or stroke. Then, the elders they are caring for need to go into a nursing home, because those crucial to their survival and health can’t be there for them. Worse, they are left alone to adjust without stable care they rely on because their caregivers are just too ill.

Not All Spouses Can Be Good Caregivers

Remember to Exercise…Exercise to Remember

Studies Show Physical Activity Decreases Risk of Alzheimer’s Disease

Exercise is touted as an integral part of fitness, health and maintaining a trim physique, but what if it also could benefit the brain? Recent research suggests that physical activity could be an effective treatment for Alzheimer’s disease.

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, 5.3 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, and it is now the seventh leading cause of death. No cure for Alzheimer’s exists right now. Regular exercise, however, has been shown to improve cognitive performance in older adults, and researchers say regular exercise and physical activity is better than supplements and prescription drugs in treating the advance of Alzheimer’s.

Researchers from the University of Washington conducted a six-month clinical trial with 33 participants, 17 of whom were women. All showed early signs of Alzheimer’s disease and were between the ages of 55 and 85.

Physical Agility for Mental Clarity

The experiment participants underwent a six-month intensive aerobic training program, spending 45 minutes to an hour four times each week on a stationary bicycle or treadmill. At the end of the six months, the participants saw improvement in mental agility, while the control group showed no improvement. Researchers are planning further studies to conduct larger and longer duration trials, following volunteers for years instead of months, for more conclusive data as to whether exercise can prevent full-blown cases of Alzheimer’s.

Exactly how Alzheimer’s affects memory is not understood fully, but researchers theorize that protein fragments, known as amyloid plaques, begin to cluster in the brain, causing larger, more tangled strands of other proteins to appear, which lead to symptoms of dementia often associated with Alzheimer’s.

But how does exercise stop this from occurring? Researchers Allison Bonner and Sandra O’Brien Cousins of the University of Alberta say exercise increases activity in the cortex of the brain, boosts the immune system and may “moderate the arteriosclerotic disease process of the brain,” Bonner and Cousins said in a 1996 paper published in Activities, Adaptation & Aging.

Resist Alzheimer’s with Resistance Training

Other similar studies have been conducted, where researchers have measured the health benefits of resistance training for women between the ages of 65 and 75 who are most at risk for developing Alzheimer’s. In one study, after one year of physical activity training, women who had completed the training showed better scores on mental acuity and conflict resolution tests than those who didn’t, according to an article, “Regular Exercise and Resistance Training Are Good for the Brain,” published on alzinfo.org.

Jeffrey Kaye, director of Layton Aging and Alzheimer’s Disease Center at Oregon Health and Science University, told The Oregonian, “The challenge now is to understand, at a scientific level, what elements of physical activity really do enhance brain function, and what level, what dose of activity is needed.”

Third-year College student Haley Carpenter has a family with a history of Alzheimer’s disease, which can be passed down from generation to generation.

“It’s been hard watching a family member struggle with dementia and the progression of Alzheimer’s,” she said.

But Carpenter said she remains optimistic that progress is being made in Alzheimer’s research, especially after learning about the benefits of exercise in her Contemporary Health Issues class.

“I already try to remain as active and healthy as possible and am glad to see my grandparents have incorporated daily physical activities such as biking and doing some weight training,” she said. “I do think adding more weight-bearing exercises like walking and running — if possible — could be beneficial as well.”

Overcome Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) Naturally

Has someone you care about recently been told it’s time to settle their personal affairs and start arranging for “long-term” care — all because of symptoms of Alzheimer’s?

If your life seems to be suddenly going down a road you don’t want to go down because of an Alzheimer’s diagnosis, then STOP and turn it around.

There’s only one reason 50% of Americans are told they will have irreversible Alzheimer’s disease (AD) by the time they reach 85 . . . because it’s a BIG FAT LIE that’s sells more drugs!

Statistics like that are appalling because they’re nothing but ignorant predictions based on the absurd assumption people aren’t going to find their own cure for the problem.

Truth is Big Pharma would love to sell their Alzheimer’s drugs to everyone, if they could get away with it. They claim there’s no cure, because they don’t know the cause. Problem is they’re just not looking hard enough.

Just because your doctor is a “nice person” doesn’t guarantee he or she knows what they’re doing. There are a lot of well intentioned doctors out there that are nothing more than glorified drug dealers.

I know. It’s sad. But, what do you expect when only 3% of our medical institutions and universities don’t even offer nutritional and dietary courses? Medicine should be about healing, not money.

The fact is huge pharmaceutical companies currently fund many schools. Once funded, Big Pharma can influence the students, teachers and even the study courses.

“Despite the investment of hundreds of billions of dollars of research, not even a single degenerative disease has been cured in the last hundred years.” ~ Dr. Alan Greenberg.

So, once you get past the misinformation and lies, you’ll find relief that Alzheimer’s disease is NOT a drug deficiency or the inevitable “longterm” sentence it’s being played out to be.

Discovering The Truth about AD

The cause of Alzheimer’s is suspected to be a combination of poisons from vaccines, pesticides, herbicides, heavy metal amalgams (dental fillings) and artificial food additives (known to be neurotoxins), all coming together at once.

Frankly, it’s no wonder we’re seeing an explosion of neuro-degenerative diseases! Consider all the carcinogenic and excitotoxin Americans are exposed to Americans these days.

IF people keep taking drugs to treat simple nutritional imbalances caused from toxic exposure, then 50% or more of Americans will wind up institutionalized in some government funded “long term” care ward for Alzheimer’s victims — maybe even before they’re 85 years of age.

Here’s Where Your Brain Needs To Focus . . .

Alzheimer’s disease has a root cause just as everything does; it’s an inescapable the law of cause and effect.

It’s a simple concept when you think about it. Problem is most “Big Pharma-trained” doctors haven’t a clue how to find the root cause of anything. Not that they couldn’t, it’s just that they’re not inclined to. Most doctors just “react” to whatever effect, or symptoms, you may be complaining about by writing up another prescription or recommending surgery.

That’s typical Westernized medicine in a nutshell.

Getting To The Root Of The AD Problem

The main complaints from Alzheimer’s patients are loss of clear thinking, creativity and mental function. Once you lose your ability to reason, you’re in serious deep water.

When a doctor can’t find the root cause of a health problem, they always treat the symptom and a symptom is just an effect, not the cause.

It’s no mystery why mainstream media isn’t advertising a real solution for Alzheimer’s disease (AD). It’s the same reason why Big Pharma isn’t investing in a natural cure: there’s simply more money and power in just treating the symptoms.

If you want to find the cure for Alzheimer’s disease, first you need to look for the root cause. So, let’s put on our detective shoes and see if we can get to the bottom of all this.

Nothing threatens your freedom more than this disease. Read on to learn what you can do!

Normally, when all systems are “Go,” your brain and nervous system are continuously sending electrical signals throughout your entire body. As it turns out, your body is 75% water for a good reason. Water is a conductor of electricity if it contains trace minerals, called electrolytes. Every electrolyte carries an “ionic charge” that’s either negative or positive.

You have about 50 trillion cells that are in constant communication, as long as there is plenty of minerals and water flowing around to produce enough energy.

It’s common knowledge that your mental and motor functions depend primarily on all your cells transmitting and receiving information in the form of energy.

As far as your brain is concerned, all energy is information. The more energy, the better the communication. The better the communication, the healthier you are.

That’s how you see, feel, touch, smell and move around and think. It’s all about communication.

Alzheimer’s Disease Is A Communication Breakdown

All your cells are electrically charged. Your Red Blood Cells (RBC) carry a small “negative ion charge.”

As long as they carry this “ionic” charge, they are able to bounce off each other and more rapidly deliver helpful oxygen, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients to all 50 trillion of your cells.

Healthy Red Blood Cells (RBC) also cleanse your body of acid waste, toxins and carbon dioxide.

Once they lose this electrical charge, then they start clumping together in clusters, literally collapsing in on their selves and creating dangerous blood clots, which can scar brain tissue and become plaque.

The simple lack of healthy water can cause Alzheimer like symptoms. Given time, these clumps of dirty Red Blood Cell (RBC) clots ravage your brain as oxygen, minerals and nutrient levels plunge.

Your Thirsty Brain

A simple case of chronic dehydration threatens all body functions, including your heart, brain and immune system, meaning it is of primary importance to preventing or curing Alzheimer’s disease.

Without adequate water, all of these sensitive body systems will slowly degenerate as toxic build-up destroys your nerve and circulatory system, cell by cell.

To discover the root cause of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), we must be concerned with how to first stop it before we can begin to heal brain damage. Proper hydration is a vital key.

As you know, your brain is the master control center for everything. Here is an interesting fact:

If you’re an adult your brain weighs about 3 pounds and 85% of it is very similar to seawater in composition. That figures out to 2.4 pounds of water. If seawater weighs about 8 pounds a gallon, then your brain needs exactly one third of a gallon of “electrolyte” rich water.

Keep in mind, water without minerals (A.K.A. electrolytes) can’t carry an “ionic” charge and would be useless to any neurons and other signal dependant cells.

Ions are essential to life. Sodium, potassium, calcium and other ions play an important role in the cells of living organisms.

Two times Nobel Prize laureate Linus Pauling showed that 90% of all degenerative diseases are triggered from mineral (electrolyte) deficiencies. (Alzheimer’s is a degenerative disease).

There’s no doubt if you suffer from brain dehydration, you will also have a mineral (electrolyte) deficiency, which can literally shut down your Central Nervous System (CNS), which your brain is naturally a major cog of.

Considering the rest of your healthy body is only 75% water, it’s becomes obvious why your brain, being 80% water, is more dependent on water than any other part of your body.

The vital water bathing your brain cells depends on large amounts of oxygen rich blood to provide minerals and nutrients to create “cerebrospinal fluid” (CSF). This cerebrospinal fluid is higher in sodium than potassium because sodium is vital for neuron activity1.

Could the root cause of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) be from long term dehydration and mineral deficiencies?

The answer is Yes!

Breaking Through The Blood-Brain Barrier

Your brain is pretty well self-contained compared to the rest of your body.

There are special cell membranes that protect your brain from any sudden changes in blood chemistry, acidity or alkalinity (pH). Your brains capillary walls are perfectly sealed by a special cellular filter called the “blood-brain barrier.”

One of the limitations with synthetic drugs is the blood-brain barrier keeps them out. It’s a good thing, too.

However, certain natural plant sourced nutrients, mineral ions and amino acids are allowed to pass through making accelerated healing possible using a few natural remedies.

The problem with drugs and other toxins is they damage the blood-brain barrier trying to break through the capillary walls. The result is microscopic bleeding, which ends up as scar tissue, or “plaque” from the blood clotting process.

It’s this “plaque” that is found present in so many different neurological problems like Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Lou Gehrig’s disease and epilepsy, to name a few of these devastating diseases.

The more dehydrated a person is the more likely microscopic bleeding will cause further scaring.

So, now you can see another reason why proper hydration is “at least” a helpful preventative to Alzheimer’s disease (AD).

Proper hydration is vital for maximum brain health. Now, let’s discuss some other “less obvious” factors which can contribute to Alzheimer’s disease (AD).

Chemical Criminals That Rob Brain Power[am4show guest_error=’noaccess’ ]

  • Aspartame, an excitotoxin that kills brain cells.
  • MSG, another excitotoxin that kills brain cells.
  • Methyl alcohol, a byproduct of aspartame that kills brain cells.
  • Formaldehyde, another byproduct of aspartame that kills brain cells.
  • Mercury destroys neuron fibers. Many researchers, with good reason, feel that the actual cause of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is due to toxic metal that leaches from mercury-silver amalgam dental fillings.
  • Aluminum is a protoplasmic poison and a deadly, persistent neurotoxin. Since 1934, aluminum hydroxide has been used as an additive to boost the immune response from vaccines.
  • Statins block the cholesterol nutrient necessary for proper neuron and synaptic signaling.

The Natural Solutions I’ve Found

If I were to put together a food support protocol for Alzheimer’s disease (AD), I would consider using all of these:

    • DHA, also known as Omega-3 Fatty Acid Docosahexaenoic Acid, comprises 40% of the polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) in the brain. DHA deficiency is associated with cognitive decline2.

.

Huperzine A is believed to work in a manner similar to some prescription drugs for treating symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease: increasing the level of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine by blocking its breakdown.

  • Alpha lipoic acid (ALA): alpha-lipoic acid might delay the onset or slow down the progression of the disease.
  • Huperzia serrata: In the late ’80s, a research team found that Huperzine-A, an extract of the ancient Chinese herb Huperzia serrata, easily goes through the blood-brain barrier and stops AChE (an enzyme) from destroying your precious acetylcholine.
  • Acetylcholine: Although the course of Alzheimer’s disease is unique for every individual, AD is caused by reduced synthesis of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.
  • Phosphatidylcholine: Choline containing phospholipids are essential for the integrity of the cell membrane.
  • Daffodil extract (galantamine) suppresses the death of brain cells3.
  • Lipoic acid increases acetylcholine (ACh) production.
  • Vitamin C may help reduce risk of Alzheimer’s by 78%4.
  • Magnesium depletion, particularly in the hippocampus, appears to represent an important pathogenic factor in Alzheimer’s disease5.

These are a few potential cures I’ve found in a relatively short period of time. So, never give up hope.

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is considered a progressive neuro-degenerative disorder that destroys human memory and brain function, social communication skills and the ability to carry out every day activities. Leading experts predict if ignored, more than 16 million Americans will suffer from Alzheimer’s disease (AD) by 2050.

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the Number #4 Killer of Americans, causing over 100,000 deaths each year in the USA alone. Currently, AD patients occupy more than half of all nursing home beds.

The solution exists. You simply need to believe in it enough to find the right one for you.

So, keep in mind that “you were born to heal!”

Memory Supplements Review

Supplements for Memory & Cognition Enhancement: Ginkgo, Huperzine-A, and Acetyl-L-Carnitine

Several supplements are commonly known to sharpen memory and improve cognitive function. Even if you don’t suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, people with age-related memory relapse can benefit from these promising approaches.

Ginkgo:

People who reliably take this supplement can have 68 percent lower risk of developing mild memory problems. Made from the dried powdered leaves of the Ginkgo Biloba tree with a variety of phytochemicals. However, it’s beneficial use for Alzheimer’s patients is not tested proven.

Unfortunately, Ginkgo is one of the most adulterated herbs and testing show “spiked” chemical compounds in samples.  Only half of the Ginkgo products tested passed inspection. For Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia the total daily dose is 120 to 240 mg. Those safe for consumption are:
