  • Can Aspirin and Ibuprofen
    Prevent Alzheimer’s?

    An older brain is a more vulnerable brain. Year by year, as you age, your brain has a harder time defending itself against factors that can hinder your memory and hamper your mental abilities.

     But cheap, over-the-counter medications, available at any supermarket, may be able to prevent some of the difficulties that aging brains are prone to. In fact, some of them are probably in your medicine cabinet right now. . .

    As you grow older, being hospitalized for a critical illness or surgery is increasingly likely to result in brain problems. The after-effects of surgery can include disrupted thinking, hallucinations, memory difficulties, an inability to focus and a dementia-like state of mind.

    Although doctors don’t fully understand why surgery and anesthesia can impair the brain, studies have demonstrated that substances released by the immune system called cytokines are involved in inflammation and cognitive fogginess after surgical procedures.

    At the present time, doctors have no way to treat these conditions. But a studyi at the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden shows that a compound the body makes in response to aspirin may prevent and ease these difficulties, improving memory function.

    The substance the body makes (with the help of aspirin) is called resolvin D1(AT-RvDi). It’s manufactured from the omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) which is contained in fish oil.

    “We report a novel role for AT-RvD1 in restoring memory dysfunction after surgery,” says researcher Niccolò Terrando. “It was remarkable that AT-RvD1 displayed such unexpected effects on the central nervous system when administered at very low doses in the systemic circulation using this surgical model.”

    “Aspirin works as an anti-inflammatory by lowering the levels of prostaglandins and thromboxanes but in the presence of essential omega-3 fatty acids can also increase the body’s own production of various lipid mediators, including resolvins like AT-RvD1, which promote resolution of inflammatory processes,” adds Lars I. Eriksson, head of a research group at Karolinska.

    “These molecules,” he continues, “aside from reversing inflammation, also promote healing and tissue regeneration that are of relevance to patient safety and recovery. We hope to apply these therapies to prevent cognitive decline in at-risk surgical patients by translating our findings into patient care.”

    Anti-Parkinson’s Pill

    Another study,ii this one at the Harvard School of Public Health, shows that people who often take ibuprofen may reduce their risk of Parkinson’s disease by a third.

    “There is no cure for Parkinson’s disease, so the possibility that ibuprofen, an existing and relatively non-toxic drug, could help protect against the disease is captivating,” says researcher Alberto Ascherio.

    About 500,000 Americans suffer Parkinson’s, a nervous system disease. Approximately 50,000 new cases are diagnosed each year.

    “We observed that men and women who used ibuprofen two or more times per week were about 38% less likely to develop Parkinson’s disease than those who regularly used aspirin, acetaminophen, or other NSAIDs,” adds researcher Xiang Gao. “Our findings suggest that ibuprofen could be a potential neuroprotective agent against Parkinson’s disease, however, the exact mechanism is unknown.”

    Pop an Advil, Prevent Dementia?

    A number of studies have suggested that NSAIDs, especially ibuprofen – the ingredient in Advil – protect against dementia.

    In May, 2008, the journal Neurology published a study showing that people who took ibuprofen for more than five years had a 44 percent lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease than did people who don’t follow this practice. Other NSAID drugs reduced the risk by 25 percent. The study came from Boston University Medical School.

    Given the fact that inflammation plays such a huge role in not only dementia but also cancer and cardiovascular disease, these studies don’t surprise me too much.

    All the same, I don’t recommend daily use of NSAIDs because they’re linked to severe gastrointestinal problems. Each year, they account for more than a hundred thousand hospital admissions and between 15,000 and 20,000 deaths.

    In the studies I described above, the most surprising finding is that aspirin and ibuprofen have specific brain-saving effects that aren’t generic to all anti-inflammatories. That’s too bad, because the preferred course would be to take natural anti-inflammatories and avoid the commercial drugs.

    But we are where we are. For someone already sinking into dementia, the facts argue for maybe trying the aspirin therapy, very cautiously. You don’t have much to lose. At the same time, you should be sure to eat plenty of fish or take fish oil since the body makes resolvin from the omega-3 fatty acids in fish.

    And before trying daily aspirin, I would exhaust every other recourse first, including (obviously) the wide range of natural anti-inflammatories and well-proven remedies like coconut oil and Prevagen (see our book Awakening from Alzheimer’s for full information on all the natural remedies).

    As for the ibuprofen studies, it’s not clear that taking the drug AFTER the onset of Parkinson’s disease or Alzheimer’s will do any good. The studies suggest the drug may have a preventative effect if taken years before the first signs of disease. Does this mean healthy seniors should start taking ibuprofen frequently to prevent brain disease? I sure wouldn’t.

    To my mind, the risks are too high. These drugs can cause serious side effects like gastrointestinal bleeding that can be life-threatening. For those already facing dementia, the aspirin-plus-fish-oil therapy may be worth trying as a last resort.

  • The Forgotten Nutrient –
    Used For Over 60 Years
    To Restore Memories

    “…it took just under four months for us to see what seemed to be a full cure, but we started to notice improvement even after a few days.”

    So reported K.H. of Las Vegas in December, 2013. Her mother, suffering from dementia, was unable to tell you her age or what year it was. Yet in just a few short months her mental faculties made a full comeback.

    Her mother said the experience “was like having windows suddenly flung open, like she could suddenly see things again that had been hidden from her.”

    And yet all it took to restore her to full mental health was a nutritional supplement, and not a rare, exotic herb, either – just a simple vitamin. . .

    Why YouTube Banned This
    Cancer Cure Video

    Over 3,766,566 viewers watched before it was banned by YouTube.

    And why was it banned?

    To silence the dissemination of health solutions which threaten the earnings of the $200-Billion Cancer Treatment and Drug Industry.

    It stands to reason that manufacturers of chemotherapy drugs (and the medical practitioners that prescribe them) are going to suppress natural, drug-free approaches to curing cancer—including this one.

    Even though YouTube banned it, you can still watch it on our private webpage.

    I urge you to watch the video now… your life and the life of your loved ones could depend on it. With the interests of the $200 billion cancer industry at stake, we don’t know how long it will be available.

     

    The vitamin in question was B3, which is available in various forms including nicotinamide, niacinamide, nicotinic acid or niacin.

    Nicotinamide in the treatment of Alzheimer’s can be traced back to 1943 when Dr William Kaufman published important findings. He said that patients who were deficient in the nutrient exhibited mental symptoms. This isn’t surprising when you consider that a severe shortage of B3 causes pellagra, a deficiency disease characterized by dementia.

    Dr Kaufman reported that a lesser deficiency, while not severe enough to bring on pellagra, did cause impaired memory, poor concentration, inability to complete tasks, anxiety and quarrelsome behaviors. When patients supplemented with nicotinamide, the symptoms “disappeared….or improved considerably.”

    Low Dietary Intake Puts You at Severe Risk

    More recently, 3,718 people in the Chicago area, aged 65 or older and dementia-free, took part in a nine-year study. The researchers analyzed their diets and took note of decreasing mental abilities if any developed.

    After three years, clinical evaluations were performed on a randomly selected subgroup of 815. 131 of them were diagnosed with Alzheimer’s (an alarming statistic in itself). The researchers found that those with the lowest intake of B3 – 12.6mg a day – were 80% more likely to receive a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s compared to participants with the highest intake of 22.4mg a day.

    After six years the researchers looked at the larger group and found those with the highest intake had 44% less cognitive decline than did those whose intake was the least.

    “…a safe treatment for Alzheimer’s Disease…”

    In a study which used mice genetically engineered to develop Alzheimer’s, those that took high doses of nicotinamide in their drinking water over four months performed just as well in memory tests as normal mice. Normal mice supplemented with B3 also performed better than did a control group of non-engineered mice fed only their usual diet.

    The study concludes: “These preclinical findings suggest that oral nicotinamide may represent a safe treatment for Alzheimer’s disease…”

    Lead researcher Dr Kim Green didn’t leave the matter in doubt: “The vitamin completely prevented cognitive decline associated with the disease, bringing them back to the level they’d be at if they didn’t have the pathology. Nicotinamide has a very robust effect on neurons.”

    His colleague Frank LaFerla added, “It actually improved behavior in non-demented animals too. This suggests that not only is it good for Alzheimer’s disease, but if normal people take it, some aspects of their memory might improve.”

    Clear Benefits on Many Levels

    Nicotinamide was a successful treatment in the study because it reduced levels of tau protein, one of the proteins associated with Alzheimer’s. It also strengthened microtubules, the highways in neurons where information travels, helping to keep the brain cells alive. The death of these cells leads to dementia. Nicotinamide makes these highways wider and more stable.

    Nicotinamide is also one of a class of compounds called HDAC inhibitors. These have protective effects on the central nervous system.

    A major human trial of nicotinamide will report later this year. But there is really no need to wait for the results. The vitamin has been used for over 60 years with safety.

    The usual dose is 1000mg three times daily. Some people suffer nausea at this level and have to cut the dosage in half. In rare cases nausea may continue at this dose. This means the liver cannot handle the niacin supplement and it should only be given under medical supervision.

    If you do choose to take B3, make sure you read the label carefully. It is important to take the amide form – nicotinamide or niacinamide and NOT nicotinic acid or niacin. Not only did the research above use the amide forms, but pure niacin/nicotinic acid often causes an unpleasant skin reaction called “flushing”.

    The best food sources are eggs, tuna, chicken, turkey, crimini mushrooms, salmon, beef liver and kidney, asparagus, tomatoes and bell peppers.

  • Is There a Link Between
    Migraines and Alzheimer’s Disease?

    Despite headaches being so common, neurologists still don’t know a lot about them. And despite dementia being the most common neurological disorder in older populations, we still don’t know everything about that, either.

     Recent studies have linked migraines in middle-aged people to an increased risk of Parkinson’s disease later in life. Those who see “auras”—or visual disturbances—are at double the risk.1

     The pathologies of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease are very similar … could migraines increase your risk for dementia, too?

    A University of Waterloo study states that migraines are a significant risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease. In a study involving more than 700 participants, researchers found those with a history of migraines were three times more likely to develop dementia, and four times more likely to develop Alzheimer’s.4

    Studies have shown that, like Alzheimer’s disease, migraines may also be a neurodegenerative condition — and the similarities between the two conditions don’t stop there.

    For example, a study from the University of Copenhagen discovered that recurrent migraines might physically change the structure of the brain by causing brain lesions, white matter abnormalities, and changes in brain volume. The risks were double for those who suffered migraines with auras.2

    A change in brain volume is also typical of Alzheimer’s patients. And while Alzheimer’s is primarily considered a disease of the gray matter in the brain, a 2013 study from the journal Current Opinion in Psychiatry stated that white matter abnormalities might also play an important role in the development of Alzheimer’s.5

    Another study showed that women who experience aura migraines are also at a higher risk for heart disease. Heart disease and Alzheimer’s have been called “twin pathologies” because of the many triggers and properties they share: inflammation, oxidative stress, and hypoxia, or oxygen deficiency caused by impaired blood flow.4

    Plus, a recent report from the New York Academy of Sciences stated that oxygen deficiency may turn on the gene BACE1, which is involved in creating the amyloid-beta proteins characteristic of Alzheimer’s.3

    The jury is still out on whether migraines might directly cause Alzheimer’s, but there seems to be a significant amount of risk. It will take more research before we know for sure.

    In the meantime, if you suffer from migraines or recurrent headaches, it’s important to reduce pain as quickly as possible. Natural Health Insiders just published a new book called The Ultimate Guide to Conquering Pain, focusing on non-drug solutions. That would be a good place to start.

    Natural Treatments for Migraines

    Common painkillers like aspirin, ibuprofen and acetaminophen are laden with side effects such as liver damage, rebound headaches, increased blood clots, heart attacks and damage to the GI tract, including ulcers. Indeed, these drugs are extremely dangerous when used for anything more than short periods of time.

    Unfortunately, if you suffer from migraines, these chemical painkillers might feel like your only option for relief. I once suffered from chronic headaches myself and took over-the-counter painkillers by the pound (or at least it seemed that way).

    And to be fair I have to tell you there’s evidence that long-term use of these anti-inflammatory drugs does reduce the risk of dementia. The benefits aren’t worth the terrible dangers, but they do show it’s hugely important to control inflammation. The trick is to do so naturally, without drugs – and fortunately that’s easy to do.

    I learned how to do it, and I’m certain you can, too.

    One of my favorite treatments for headaches is using essential oils topically, vaporized in a diffuser, or by inhaling them. Peppermint, wintergreen, and lavender are all great in combination or individually. The Ultimate Guide to Conquering Pain covers essential oils in some detail.

    Put a drop of each oil anywhere that hurts or is tense—the temples, neck, sinuses, and forehead—and breathe them in deeply.

    If you believe your headache is caused by inflammation, rather than taking ibuprofen, try a combination of turmeric and fish oil. Studies have shown turmeric to be just as effective at reducing inflammation and pain as ibuprofen, without the side effects. Fish oil, besides being anti-inflammatory itself, also helps the body absorb the turmeric.

    Likewise, white willow and feverfew are effective herbal home remedies.

    I’m a big fan of body therapies like massage therapy, chiropractic (when done by a good practitioner), acupuncture and zero balancing. These have been absolutely essential to me in managing and getting rid of chronic pain.

    Diagnosis is all-important. My chronic headaches – which were more painful than anything else I’ve ever experienced – turned out to be an undiagnosed sinus condition. Despite all their high-tech tests, conventional doctors never did figure it out.

    No matter which option you choose to deal with your pain, it’s important to do something more than drugs. Your brain’s health may depend on reducing future migraine attacks.

    P.S. Generally, the difference between a “normal” headache and a migraine is the latter generally lasts longer, up to 72 hours, and it comes with extra symptoms, like nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and noise.

    The Ancient Memory-Boosting
    Secret of Chinese Emperors

    A note from Lee Euler

    Our best-selling book Awakening from Alzheimer’s featured an ancient Chinese secret for boosting memory. Now I’m happy to tell you we have a recommended source for this supplement if you wish to try it.

    I’ve been taking it myself, and I can feel the results. I’m thinking faster and more clearly than I have in years. This is definitely not one of the supplements where you take it and “nothing happens.”

    So, what is this stuff? In ancient China, the emperor was believed to be the son of heaven. One of the perks of the job was that he was the only one allowed to eat a certain medicinal mushroom that was said to give him “nerves of steel and the memory of a lion.”

    Now modern science has confirmed this mushroom’s remarkable benefits. If you’d like to reap the benefits for yourself click here now…

     

    Meditation isn’t just for seekers of spiritual enlightenment. Today, doctors prescribe this stress-reducing technique as a cure for ADHD, anxiety, depression, and now Alzheimer’s.

    I was first introduced to it myself almost 40 years ago as a student in an MBA program, as a means of dealing with workplace stress and its harmful effect on health.

    A new study being conducted by Boston’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center has theorized that daily meditation and stress-reducing techniques could be vital to decreasing the progression of Alzheimer’s and dementia.1 In fact, the study found these practices bring on physical changes in the brain that have enormous benefits.

    It’s widely known that short-term stress can accelerate the progression of Alzheimer’s and make the symptoms worse.

    Chronic stress on the other hand, can do much more than just increase symptoms – it can literally ‘rewire’ your brain!

    This kind of stress closes down the pathways between the hippocampus (a part of the brain that’s essential to memory) and the amygdala (a part that controls emotions) — leading to anxiety, depression, and memory loss.2

    Chronic stress can also break down the neural network between the fear and anxiety areas of the brain … and those that control rationality.3

    For those suffering from Alzheimer’s, stress leads to more confusion, anxiety, and disorientation.

    It’s not likely that meditation by itself is the answer to Alzheimer’s disease, but it can be an essential tool.

    Reshaping the Alzheimer’s Brain

    According to the Beth Israel study, daily meditation for 20 to 30 minutes
    opened new pathways in the brain, decreased cortisol levels, and increased blood flow and function.1

    By practicing daily meditation, each Alzheimer’s patient was definitively able to reshape his or her brain to be less anxious and less stressed.

    This mental ‘re-wiring’ helped so many areas of the brain that scientists are now conducting new studies to see just how much reshaping can be done by simple meditation techniques.

    The results will certainly be a breakthrough for the Alzheimer’s community in particular, but the benefit of starting your own “daily contemplation” routine can benefit you no matter what your age or current medical condition.

    By the way …

    Does Meditation Still Sound
    Too “Woo Woo” for You?

    If getting down in the lotus position and humming om shanti sounds too New Age for you, scientists have found as much benefit in prayer as they have in meditation.

    The two aren’t that different, yet scientists have found special benefit with the “conversation” part of prayer.

    Dr. Andrew Newberg, director of research from the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Hospital in Pennsylvania, conducted MRI brain scans that showed prayer is like a “physical workout” for the brain.4

    So, it doesn’t matter what you call it—or what position you assume—it’s of great value to simply allow your brain to relax from its daily activities as you enjoy focusing on something else.

    There are many books, courses and groups offering instruction in how to meditate, ranging from Buddhist to Christian to nondenominational. You should have no trouble finding something that suits you.

  • This Alzheimer’s Threat Comes from
    the Last Place You’d Expect

    When you get older you often suffer symptoms that are put down to advancing age. Like less energy and more fatigue, increased body fat, reduced muscle mass and strength, sleep disturbances, poor concentration and memory, and reduced libido.

    And yet all these conditions can be due to a particular deficiency that is reaching epidemic proportions – a deficiency that also increases the risk of developing heart disease, osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s.

    It’s not that you suffer low levels of a vitamin or mineral or any kind of nutrient. It’s something else altogether – and it may surprise you.

    You may be at greater risk of Alzheimer’s disease if you have low levels of the male sex hormone testosterone. And this doesn’t just affect men. It affects post-menopausal women, too.

    Low Testosterone Is Widespread

    A study of 2,162 men aged 45 and older found that 39% of them had testosterone deficiency (TD) (less than 300 ng/dL).

    Three medical associations define TD as less than 340 ng/dL. By this stricter standard, a much higher percentage of men would be labeled with this disorder.

    In just a five-year period from 1999 to 2004, prescriptions for testosterone replacement therapy for men increased by a massive 200%.

    What’s happening? Why are testosterone levels dropping so rapidly?

    Although testosterone declines naturally with age (particularly after 40), the most likely reason for such widespread deficiency is the changing nature of our environment.

    It’s been polluted with 90,000 chemicals over the last 60 years. The ones of most concern in this context are female hormone-imitating chemicals called xenoestrogens. They are known to reduce testosterone and sperm counts.

    These horrors are in virtually every consumer product from plastics, to soaps, shampoos and cosmetics, to the food and water we consume, to computers, furniture, bedding and more. We absorb them into our bodies and there’s no getting away from them.

    “One of the Risk Factors
    for Alzheimer’s Disease”

    The evidence has been mounting over the years that testosterone deficiency could be a factor in Alzheimer’s. 153 Chinese men aged 55 or more were tested during a 12-month period. Of the 47 who had mild cognitive impairment to start with, 10 went on to develop Alzheimer’s. These men were the ones who had lower testosterone levels at the start of the study.

    The lead researcher Dr John Morley said, “It’s a very exciting study because we’ve shown that a low level of testosterone is one of the risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease.”

    A similar study followed 574 men aged 32 to 87 for 19 years. The researchers found that for every 10-unit increase in testosterone levels, the risk of developing Alzheimer’s plunged by by 26%.

    “Alzheimer’s Can be Halted
    and in Some Cases Cured.”

    Testosterone also improved cognition in post-menopausal women in a study published in October, 2014. Professor Susan Davis, who led the study, said “testosterone has widespread effects on women including, it appears, significant favorable effects on verbal learning and memory.”

    The result was the same in a mouse study. Low testosterone levels caused cognitive impairment and increased the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Most interesting is that this study gave a strong indicator of the mechanism at work. The low-testosterone mice had much higher levels of beta amyloid, the brain protein widely implicated in the development of the disease.

    According to lead author Christian Pike, “We’ve known that low testosterone is a risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease, but now we know why.”

    Theoretical biologist Dr Edward Friedman has no doubts.

    “Testosterone is the number one most effective agent to fight Alzheimer’s.” With testosterone therapy, he says, “Alzheimer’s can be halted and in some cases cured.”

    His research suggests that by boosting testosterone, beta amyloid can be lowered, and more easily broken down and disposed of. He claims that testosterone also increases blood flow to the brain and improves glucose metabolism. These also reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s.

    A Natural Approach to Improved
    Hormone Balance is Best

    Although testosterone replacement therapy is an option, it has several drawbacks, including a tendency for the patient to lose the ability to produce his own testosterone.

    A better approach is to naturally improve the estrogen/testosterone balance.

    Estrogen levels can be lowered by losing weight, cutting out soy foods and eating organic food. Testosterone can be increased by regular exercise, quitting smoking and taking certain male herbal supplements such as tongkat ali.

    For men, at least, we publish a valuable resource on all the best ways to increase testosterone levels, and the multiple reasons (not just Alzheimer’s) why it’s so important to your health (diabetes and heart disease also correlate with low testosterone levels.)

    Our special report is called Maximum Manhood. The report also explains that many of the popular, highly-advertised male potency supplements are dangerous or fraudulent. If I do say so myself, it’s an information goldmine for men concerned about testosterone, performance, or prostate issues.

    If you have any of the symptoms I mentioned at the beginning, don’t accept them as being normal at your time of life. They may not be. It would be well worth your while to get tested for low testosterone. And then to do something about it with the tips in the special report.

    By the way, as Maximum Manhood explains, the 300-340 total testosterone level, considered adequate by some authorities, is too low for optimum health. It’s desirable to have much higher levels than that. So even if your doctor tells you your levels are adequate, you may want to take it with a grain of salt. Also, as you’ll see, total testosterone is not the most important metric. It’s free testosterone you need to be concerned about. The report explains all.
