  • Boost your brain with a tasty berry

    When pharmaceutical companies develop drugs to treat particular diseases, they usually try to manufacture a medication that produces a narrow effect that can be measured in clinical trials.

    Holistic medicine and nutritional support don’t work that way. The whole foods that promote better health benefit many parts of the body. The nutrients in these foods don’t narrowly target one organ or one physical process.

    For a great example, keep reading and I’ll tell you about a small berry that not only protects and nurtures the brain, but also helps promote heart health and shrinks your risk of diabetes – all at the same time.

    Powerful Marine Extract Reverses Aging
    — While You SLEEP!

    Stem cells are your body’s built-in mechanism for staying young and healthy. They repair any tissue or organ that’s injured – and restore it to brand new.

    But as you grow older…

    And there was nothing you could do about it – until now…

    Researchers discovered how to boost the release of stem cells and mobilize them to repair and renew your body – with a powerful seaweed extract.

    Click here to find out how this remarkable formula can restart your body’s self-renewing mechanism – and erase years of aging while you sleep.

     

    Blueberries provide remarkable brain protection. When researchers from the University of Cincinnati fed blueberry juice to people in their 70s who were suffering early memory decline, they found that the juice significantly improved the subjects’ performance on learning and memory tests.i

    The Cincinnati researchers report, “These preliminary memory findings are encouraging and suggest that consistent supplementation with blueberries may offer an approach to forestall or mitigate neurodegeneration.”

    The people in the research consumed a fairly large amount of juice — more than 2 cups a day for two months. I guess some people might grow tired of drinking that much blueberry juice every day.

    Not me. I eat fresh blueberries several mornings a week, all year long. The only times I miss are when they’re out of season. During the winter they’re shipped up from south of the equator, and to my mind those are even better than the locally grown ones during the summer.

    Blueberries taste so good, I think probably a lot of people will agree with me that drinking blueberry juice daily is an easy way to boost their brain health. (The expense is another matter; they don’t come cheap. But considering the money people spend on things that are bad for them, a few bucks for something that’s fun AND beneficial shouldn’t pose a problem.)

    The Power of Flavonoids

    In England, scientists at the Peninsula Medical School in Exeter and the University of Reading got beneficial results similar to those of the Cincinnati group. They fed blueberries for three months to a group of seniors who were having trouble with their memories. What happened? The participants’ spatial working memory began to improve after three weeks on the blueberry-supplemented diet. The improvements were maintained during the entire experiment.

    The English scientists attribute much of blueberries’ brain support to its flavonoids, a class of natural plant compounds that includes chemicals called anthocyanins and flavonols.

    The researchers note that these chemicals cross the blood/brain barrier and improve the connection between the neurons that are responsible for remembering and learning.

    They also demonstrated that the blueberry compounds speed up activation of signal proteins in the hippocampus, the brain area where learning and memory takes place.ii

    According to researcher Jeremy Spencer, who is with the University of Reading, “Impaired or failing memory as we get older is one of life’s major inconveniences. Scientists have known of the potential health benefits of diets rich in fresh fruits for a long time. Our previous work had suggested that flavonoid compounds had some kind of effect on memory, but until now we had not known the potential mechanisms to account for this.”

    Good for your heart and circulation, too

    An added advantage to blueberries is the fact that they also help defend against heart problems and diabetes. A study at the University of Maine shows that daily doses of the fruit can decrease the risk of metabolic syndrome, the condition that often leads to type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.iii

    “The metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a group of risk factors characterized by obesity, hypertension, inflammation, dyslipidemia, glucose intolerance and insulin resistance, and endothelial dysfunction,” says researcher Klimis-Zacas, a professor of clinical nutrition. “We have previously documented the cardiovascular benefits of a polyphenol-rich wild blueberry in (an animal) model with impaired vascular health and high blood pressure.”

    Health benefits like those should make blueberries required eating for anyone concerned about an aging mind and body.

    THE OUTLAWED CURE FOR ALL DISEASE

    This Hushed-Up Cure for Heart Disease, Diabetes, Alzheimer’s and Cancer Has
    Been Censored, Banned,
    and Blacklisted… Until Now!

    This Harvard study should have made front page news around the world.  It’s the
    kind of news that would have most Americans falling off their sofas… if they ever heard it.

    You see, the Harvard researchers behind this study discovered a way to
    “flip a switch” inside your cells that makes it virtually impossible for any chronic disease to exist in that cell…

    …and if you already have diseased cells, you can make them disappear as if they never existed at all.

    So would it surprise you if I told you the FDA created laws to block access to this amazing technology? In some cases the laws are so tight, my colleague, Dr. Al Sears is not even allowed to TALK about it.

    This hushed-up, breakthrough technology provides a possible CURE for everything from cancer and heart disease, to diabetes and Alzheimer’s.

    And it’s available RIGHT NOW. But it never sees the light of day.

    Today, Dr. Sears is blowing the whistle on the FDA.

    Fight inflammation and
    neurological disease naturally

    Excess inflammation is one of the main contributors to chronic disease, cancer, and brain tissue degradation. For decades, alternative medicine and nutrition researchers have been searching for the most powerful natural anti-inflammatories.

    Concord grape juice might be one of them. Grape juice is especially high in polyphenols—natural compounds that affect the color, taste, and “mouthfeel” of the juice. Just a few of these include anthocyanins, tannins, and resveratrol.

    Studies have shown polyphenols are excellent antioxidants and anti-inflammatories … making grape juice an excellent “real food supplement” for protecting brain health.

    Brings fast relief

    You don’t have to drink grape juice for very long to see the benefits.

    One study from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine asked adults with early memory decline to drink between 15 and 21 ounces of Concord grape juice daily, divided equally between meals.

    In just 12 weeks, participants drinking the juice showed significant improvement in their list-learning, short-term and spatial memory, compared to those on placebo. (1)

    That’s not all. Grape polyphenols may even fight the amyloid-beta plaques characteristic of Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Lap Ho from the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine discovered that grape’s polyphenols inhibit creation and accumulation of amyloid proteins. (2)

    This is good news for those interested in protecting cognitive function and memory in the long term!

    You’ve probably heard that drinking red wine in moderation can be a healthy lifestyle choice.

    Personally, I don’t advocate more than few alcoholic drinks per week; I believe alcohol has more risks than benefits. What’s more, the benefits of red wine are NOT associated with a couple of drinks a week. They’ve been confirmed only in individuals who consume very large amounts, too high to be either healthy or practical.

    That’s why it’s exciting to see scientific proof that simple, non-alcoholic grape juice has the same benefits.

    A glass of grape juice isn’t just good for your brain …

    Other benefits of Concord grape juice include:

    • It’s heart healthy. French researchers found grape juice relaxes arteries in much the same way as red wine … but the effects last up to six hours, much longer than red wine. (3)
    • It may fight breast cancer. A study from the Journal of Medicinal Foods experimented on healthy breast cells in a test tube. The researchers found grape polyphenols not only prevented a cancer-causing agent from mutating the healthy cells’ DNA, it also increased enzyme activity in the cell that detoxifies it from oxidative stress. (4)
    • It could defend against food-borne disease. Grapes have anti-microbial properties. A University of Missouri study showed they were effective against E. coli, salmonella, listeria, and h. pylori, the bacteria that can cause stomach ulcers in many individuals. (5)

    How to have a carefree grape juice experience

    Some people avoid fruit juice because of the high sugar content. They have a point. But I’ve learned that concerns about high sugar in grape juice are somewhat overblown. Whole grapes are fairly low on the glycemic index, between 43 and 53. The glycemic index indicates how fast your digestive system converts a food to blood sugar (glucose). But be aware that juice will have a higher glycemic index than the whole fruit because the fiber has been eliminated and it’s digested fast.

    I was also fascinated to find out that some studies have discovered blood sugar benefits from eating grapes, including blood sugar balance and insulin regulation. (6) Grapes are a treasure house of nutrients that make them very attractive even if sugar is part of the package.

    In spite of these hopeful findings, I still think it’s wise to consume sweet juices in moderation. They are – for sure – healthier than sodas and the other sugary stuff that people drink by the gallon. So if you have a soda habit, as millions of people do, you’ll absolutely benefit from switching to fruit juice because it’s so rich in nutrients.

    But fruit juice is still loaded with sugar, and my research confirms that as far as your body is concerned, sugar is pretty much sugar – whether it’s cane sugar, high fructose corn syrup or the fructose found in organic fruit — and large amounts of it can be harmful.

    I wish there was something magical about the sugar in organic fruit, but there isn’t. So enjoy the benefits of juice but don’t get carried away.

    And at least you can avoid extra sugar. Purchase 100% organic Concord grape juice without added sugar, corn syrup, or artificial colors to ensure you enjoy the fruit’s benefits without taking in junk you don’t want or need. Juicing your own purple grapes is also a good alternative.

  • Alzheimer’s Patients have Four Times The Levels of This Pesticide

     

    The environmental decisions of previous generations are coming back to haunt us. A chemical now found to be a risk factor for Alzheimer’s was banned in the United States a long time ago, but that may have been a case of “too little, too late.”

    Today’s pesticides and herbicides are supposedly safer, but unregulated use of more deadly chemicals in the past could be causing serious health problems in people even now. Today’s suspect is probably the most famous pesticide in history, DDT. Let’s take a look at what it may still be doing to us. . .

    Improve your hearing
    without implants or surgery

     

    Most people think that hearing loss is a part of aging and that they have to live with it. They tend to believe the only way out is to wear hearing aids or undergo invasive implant surgery.

    They are wrong! New breakthrough studies have unlocked the powerful secret that helps relieve ringing in the ears and improves your hearing even if you’re 70, 80 or 90 years old!

    The best news is that your hearing can start to improve in as little as 7 days.

    To know more about this amazing secret, Click Here.

     

    Researchers from Emory University’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center came to a startling conclusion when they compared elderly patients with Alzheimer’s to those without.

    Those with Alzheimer’s disease had as much as four times the amount of DDE (the metabolite of the pesticide DDT).

    DDT and DDE have been shown to increase the levels of precursor proteins that create amyloid protein plaques characteristic of Alzheimer’s disease.

    Even though DDT was banned in the U.S. in 1973, the toxin hasn’t exactly disappeared overnight.

    Plus, “we are still being exposed to these chemicals in the United States,” explained lead author Jason Richardson. “We get food products from other countries and DDE persists in the environment.” (1)

    However, the researchers didn’t have enough evidence to prove conclusively that DDT build-up is a cause of Alzheimer’s. But, they noted, it could be used as a “biomarker” combined with genetic testing to predict an individual patient’s risk and help prevent early onset of symptoms.

    In other words, DDT/DDE appears to be a “risk factor.” We don’t know for sure that it causes the disease, but Alzheimer’s is more likely among individuals who have high levels of these chemicals.

    While there may be little we can do to remove harsh chemicals from the environment, raising awareness and taking action to remove toxic build-up from our bodies is our most effective next step.

    How to detox from pesticide exposure

    It’s too bad that there are few (if any) rigorous scientific studies on effective detoxification techniques. However, several alternative theories based on individual practices and anecdotal proof suggest that the following steps can help you remove excess environmental toxins.

    Though toxins can be found throughout the body and brain, we do know that they are often stored in fat tissue, allowing them to stay in the body for years at a time. (The half-life of DDT in the human body is between eight and ten years.) So, burning fat by exercising more and eating healthy fats (such as avocadoes, nuts, coconut oil, and toxin-free fish oil) are excellent first steps in a detox program.

    Also, drink plenty of filtered water and indulge in “super foods” like dark greens, flax and chia seeds, and produce or spices rich in antioxidants. These foods support your natural detoxing organs and help cleanse the body. It goes without saying that you should eat organic forms of these foods. Otherwise you’re adding to your load of pesticides and herbicides, not reducing it.

    There is significant evidence that spirulina and chlorella supplements help remove toxins from the body.

    It’s likely that we’re just beginning to see the devastating effects of past generations’ use of heavy pesticides and other toxins in our environment. It’s long been known these chemicals cause cancer. Now it turns out they’re implicated in dementia, too. Purchasing organic foods and other products is more important than ever.

  • How a Good Sweat
    Can Prevent or Treat Alzheimer’s

    Toxic chemicals and heavy metals are significant causes of chronic diseases of the brain and nervous system.

    Research has shown that high levels of aluminum are regularly found in the brains of Alzheimer’s victims. Mercury and other heavy metals (such as lead and cadmium) can cause memory loss, brain fog, and fuzzy thinking.

    Toxins can also directly reduce intelligence. According to Dr. Brian Clement, medical director of the famed Hippocrates Health Institute, “…[F]or every 17 micrograms of lead in your body, your IQ is reduced by 10 points.”1

    But today I want to tell you about an easy and pleasant way to get rid of these toxic metals. . .

    Mother Nature’s Cure

    It’s vital to reduce your exposure to toxins that are everywhere in our food, air, and water. But you also need a way to eliminate these brain-robbing toxins when they’re already in your body.

    Thankfully, science is now proving the powerful health benefits of an ancient method of cleansing the body, used by Native Americans for centuries. It’s sweating.

    Native Americans used sweat lodges to cleanse their bodies and spirits. But today, the most effective way to detoxify is in an infrared sauna. When heating up the body in an infrared sauna you sweat profusely. Fat cells then dump toxins, such as lead, aluminum and mercury. The toxins are released through the skin’s pores in sweat.

    Infrared saunas use infrared light to increase your body’s core temperature. (They are much more effective than traditional heat saunas.) The difference is important because infrared saunas increase the core body temperature by two to three degrees—a major factor to successful detoxification. This provides a deep and detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.

    Studies show that sweating in infrared saunas is a remarkably effective way to remove toxins2. Full-spectrum infrared saunas, (particularly the far-infrared rays) are seven times more effective than traditional saunas at eliminating toxins. Far-infrared saunas generate sweat with a toxin ratio of 20% compared to 3% toxins from a traditional sauna.

    I know quite a bit about infrared sauna because I’ve recommended them to cancer patients for years. Many of the world’s top alternative cancer clinics feature an infrared sauna in their detox protocols.

    Now that it’s becoming clear poisons are also a major cause of Alzheimer’s, it makes just as much sense to detoxify for dementia as it does for cancer. And far infrared saunas are one of the best ways to detoxify.

    A clinical study of 9/11 rescue workers showed the power of sauna therapy. The study involved over 500 rescue workers who were exposed to excessive levels of toxins at the World Trade Center site. Workers who took advantage of sauna therapy saw dramatic improvements in a wide range of health benefits such as fitness, improved balance, increased thyroid function, lower cholesterol, and better overall quality of life. The sauna treatment even raised the workers’ IQ levels an average of four points!3

    Now that’s something I can get behind!!

    The Secret to Revitalize Damaged Brain Cells

    Clinical research published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry showed that infrared saunas can actually improve the function of neurons that have been damaged by toxins. Neurons (such as brain cells or nerve cells) that were functionally inactivated due to toxic exposure were revitalized. The formerly “dead” or inactive neurons were shown to have significantly increased energy metabolism after exposure to infrared energy.4

    Other Important Health Benefits of Saunas

    Saunas can help boost your health in many other ways that also boost your mental and physical wellbeing. Some of these proven benefits include:

    • Natural Weight Loss: Far infrared saunas have been clinically shown to dramatically aid in weight loss. A 2009 study showed that infrared saunas provide significant results in lowering weight and waist circumference after just three months of use. And for those who are sedentary due to medical conditions such as osteoarthritis, cardiovascular or respiratory problems, results were even more profound.
    • Healthy Blood Pressure without Drugs: Several studies have shown that infrared sauna therapy lowers blood pressure significantly. In one study done by the University of Missouri, Kansas City, subjects were randomly assigned to either an infrared sauna or a conventional sauna. Systolic blood pressure decreased from an average of 130.5 to 124 in those who underwent infrared sauna treatment. Does conventional sauna treatment have the same effect? No. Those who were treated in a conventional sauna showed no statistical improvement in blood pressure.
    • Drug-Free Pain Relief: Infrared rays also help to naturally reduce pain and inflammation. The infrared energy gently penetrates joints, muscles and tissues, thereby reducing the soreness of nerve endings. Infrared heat reduces muscle spasms, increases flexibility and helps the body heal itself naturally. A 2013 study conducted at Auburn University compared stretching in a full-spectrum sauna to stretching in a typical training room environment. Results showed that joint flexibility increased up to 300% in the full-spectrum sauna!

    As you can see, infrared saunas can not only help protect you from environmental toxins and improve brain function, but they also help stabilize all systems of your body. Consider purchasing an infrared sauna for home use. An excellent, cutting-edge manufacturer is Sunlighten (or you can call them at 877-292-0020). Sunlighten saunas offer both far and full spectrum infrared saunas. They are the only company with clinical testing to document many of the health benefits of their sauna models.

    Whether you are suffering from chronic illness, want to optimize your health, or simply are looking for a fun way to relax, infrared saunas are an excellent way to do it.

    The wonder-nutrient so many neglect is fish oil with its omega-3 fatty acids, DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid).

    Eat this, get a bigger brain

    Researchers in a six month study gave daily doses of DHA to a group of older adults who were already suffering mild cognitive impairments (i.e. their memories were starting to slip). The scientists found that it improved their memory and learning abilities.

    According to Duff MacKay, with the Council for Responsible Nutrition, “The results of this study are very encouraging for those consumers concerned about maintaining memory. We know that lower DHA levels are associated with cognitive decline in healthy elderly and Alzheimer’s patients, and higher DHA levels help reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.”

    Even though this research showed that fish oil could help those who were already having memory difficulties, MacKay and others believe that the sooner you start consuming nutrients like DHA and EPA, the better.

    A study of more than a thousand women in their late 70s showed that those who had higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids in their blood had larger brains. That kind of increased brain size shrinks your risk of Alzheimer’s disease. I think it’s a remarkable finding – higher DHA level equals bigger brain.

    “These higher levels of fatty acids can be achieved through diet and the use of supplements, and the results suggest that the effect on brain volume is the equivalent of delaying the normal loss of brain cells that comes with aging by one to two years,” says researcher James V. Pottala, Ph.D., of the University of South Dakota.

    In Pottala’s research, the women with more EPA and DHA in their blood had brains whose hippocampus was 2.7 percent larger. The hippocampus is a key brain structure that functions in memory. People doomed to Alzheimer’s experience a shrinking hippocampus even before their memories start to degrade.  A size boost of 2.7 percent may not sound like much, but it’s highly significant.

    Early Brain Protection

    Research on lab animals supports the benefit of beginning to consume EPA and DHA before your mental capacity begins to slip. In one of these studies, when animals that had been genetically altered to develop Alzheimer’s began an EPA-enriched diet early in life (along with receiving B vitamins and other nutrients) their memories survived in better shape than did those of animals eating a “normal,” non-enriched diet.

    That’s a slap in the face to conventional doctors who say supplements are a waste of money – just a way of creating “expensive urine” – ha ha. You have to wonder what planet they live on. Trust me on this: If you listen to them you will pay a dreadful price and forgo many added years of good, healthy life.

    According to Alex Richardson, Ph.D., senior research fellow at the Centre for Evidence-Based Intervention at the University of Oxford, England, all of us should be taking fish oil supplements and consuming wild (not farmed) fish. Farmed fish are lower in DHA and EPA. Wild fish, of course, raise the issue of mercury contamination, so personally I rely on supplements that promise they’re free of heavy metals.

    Richardson points out that the average American daily consumes only 1.6 grams of omega-3 fatty acids, of which only .2 grams are DHA or EPA.

    To protect your cardiovascular system, the American Heart Association recommends .500 grams of DHA and EPA each day for healthy adults and .9 grams a day for people with heart disease. That translates to one fatty fish meal per day, or one daily fish oil supplement. Again I slightly disagree. Eating fish every day would be heavy going for me, and I worry about heavy metals, so supplements sound like a better choice.

    Richardson recommends .500 grams of omega-3 fatty acids a day for children and 1 gram a day for pregnant women to ensure that youngsters’ brains develop correctly.
