Your Alzheimer and Stem Cell Resource Center: "To lower oxidative stress: increase intake of anti-oxidants, increase omega 3 essential fats (EPA and DHA) in diet, reduce infections, avoid rancid fats and char broiled meats, and repair leaky gut. Avoid allergens, get enough oxygen and avoid smoking.
Vitamin C is another anti-oxidant to consider along with vitamin E and NAC (N Acetyl Cysteine). Having too much iron in the body is very oxidative. Make sure your ferritin levels are at 50 to 150 rather than 300. As your inflammatory status decreases, the ferritin also lowers along with CRP (C reactive Protein). "

Your Alzheimer and Stem Cell Resource Center: "These phases of detoxification of the liver can be measured and treated if they are found deficient.
To lower inflammation in addition to eating an anti-inflammatory diet, supplement with DHA and EPA (essential fatty acids from fish preferable low in mercury), niacinamide, resveratrol, melatonin, boswellia, turmeric, ginger, green tea and licorice root.
Fifty per cent of those over 85 will develop Alzheimer's.
'It takes 20-30 years to manifest AD. If you can measure- with imaging when you are 50, and you do an intervention when you are 50 and you change the trajectory of the disease by a little, all of a sudden instead of getting AD when you are 70, you get it when you are 110. And then it is no longer a problem,' says George Barkzoki, M.D., US Dept of Veterans Affairs.

Your Alzheimer and Stem Cell Resource Center: "The brain may be vulnerable to oxidative damage because it has a high energy requirement, a high oxygen consumption rate, is rich in fatty acids that easily oxidize and contains high levels of metals such as iron.
Four keys to optimal brain health are to 1) lower oxidative stress of the mitochondria 2) improve homocysteine metabolism, 3) improve metabolic and endocrine balance and 4) lower inflammation of the brain. "

Your Alzheimer and Stem Cell Resource Center: "Studies have shown that pre-senile dementia patients in nursing homes had their IQ increase when they read adventure stories and played games. They were waking up the genes that were asleep in the nervous system.
The bad news is that neurotoxins such as mercury, when ingested after a fish meal, slow motor skills moments after ingestion. In other words, the brain is very vulnerable."

Keep your brain healthy Part 10


Your Alzheimer and Stem Cell Resource Center: "Chronic stress will elevate cortisol which decreases the size of the hippocampus, one of the first signs of Alzheimers. Lead, mercury, arsenic and cadmium are well documented to interfere with neuronal health.
Chemicals, including herbicides, that contain rotinone cause a three fold increase risk of developing Parkinson's as they are mitochondrial toxins. Carbon monoxide exposure may trigger the disease.
Some food stuffs such as artificial sweeteners and MSG are neurotoxins. See the books Excitotoxins, The Taste the Kills, by Russell Blaylock and Chemical Brain Injury, by Kay Kilburn and Aspartame Disease, An Ignored Epidemic, by H.J. Roberts.
The challenge with these toxins is that some folks can eliminate them through the detoxification pathways of the liver, but a small percentage of people can't. These are the folks that develop Parkinson's after an exposure to herbicide application to their lawns. "

Your Alzheimer and Stem Cell Resource Center: "Symptoms of neurological degeneration include: impaired expression and comprehension of the written or spoken language, difficulty in decision making and problem-solving, agitation, disturbances in or loss of memory, difficulty in carrying out tasks with multiple steps, impaired judgment, intellectual decline, depression, anxiety and confusion and disorientation.
The good news is that the brain can repair itself, albeit slowly. "

Keep your brain healthy Part 9


Your Alzheimer and Stem Cell Resource Center: "Another drug that will increase mitochondrial dysfunction is Prilosec or Nexium, used for the treatment of heartburn and reflux, as it will lower B12 status and therefore increase homocysteine which is a mitochondrial toxin. (Levodopa also increases homocysteine levels and 40 per cent of Parkinson's patients develop dementia after five to 10 years of levodopa).
Like other prescription and over the counter drugs, the birth control pill is notorious for lowering folic acid. Make sure you know what nutrients the drugs you are taking are depleting.
To improve metabolic and endrocrine balance treat stress, get enough sleep, get exercise, balance estrogens and progesterones, reduce carbohydrate ingestion to reduce glycation and avoid xenobiotics, (environmental toxins)."

Your Alzheimer and Stem Cell Resource Center: "Antioxidants such as beta carotene, lycopene, vitamin E and C and vitamin A are all found to be low in Alzheimer's patients, so this is a call for all physicians to act to prevent these deficiencies in the first place. Other anti-oxidants you may have heard about that are good for the brain include: ginkgo, lycopene, lutein, rosemary extract, resveratrol (purple grape), and green tea.
Homocysteine metabolism: 42 per cent of those with neurogenerative disorders have elevated homocysteine which indicates an insufficiency of any of B12, B6 and folic acid."

The bad news is that neurotoxins such as mercury, when ingested after a fish meal, slow motor skills moments after ingestion. In other words, the brain is very vulnerable."

Chemicals, including herbicides, that contain rotinone cause a three fold increase risk of developing Parkinson's as they are mitochondrial toxins. Carbon monoxide exposure may trigger the disease.
Some food stuffs such as artificial sweeteners and MSG are neurotoxins. See the books Excitotoxins, The Taste the Kills, by Russell Blaylock and Chemical Brain Injury, by Kay Kilburn and Aspartame Disease, An Ignored Epidemic, by H.J. Roberts.
The challenge with these toxins is that some folks can eliminate them through the detoxification pathways of the liver, but a small percentage of people can't. These are the folks that develop Parkinson's after an exposure to herbicide application to their lawns. "

Your Alzheimer and Stem Cell Resource Center: "The brain may be vulnerable to oxidative damage because it has a high energy requirement, a high oxygen consumption rate, is rich in fatty acids that easily oxidize and contains high levels of metals such as iron.

Your Alzheimer and Stem Cell Resource Center: "To lower oxidative stress: increase intake of anti-oxidants, increase omega 3 essential fats (EPA and DHA) in diet, reduce infections, avoid rancid fats and char broiled meats, and repair leaky gut. Avoid allergens, get enough oxygen and avoid smoking.
Vitamin C is another anti-oxidant to consider along with vitamin E and NAC (N Acetyl Cysteine). Having too much iron in the body is very oxidative. Make sure your ferritin levels are at 50 to 150 rather than 300. As your inflammatory status decreases, the ferritin also lowers along with CRP (C reactive Protein). "

Some food stuffs such as artificial sweeteners and MSG are neurotoxins. See the books Excitotoxins, The Taste the Kills, by Russell Blaylock and Chemical Brain Injury, by Kay Kilburn and Aspartame Disease, An Ignored Epidemic, by H.J. Roberts.
The challenge with these toxins is that some folks can eliminate them through the detoxification pathways of the liver, but a small percentage of people can't. These are the folks that develop Parkinson's after an exposure to herbicide application to their lawns. "

Your Alzheimer and Stem Cell Resource Center: "Another drug that will increase mitochondrial dysfunction is Prilosec or Nexium, used for the treatment of heartburn and reflux, as it will lower B12 status and therefore increase homocysteine which is a mitochondrial toxin. (Levodopa also increases homocysteine levels and 40 per cent of Parkinson's patients develop dementia after five to 10 years of levodopa).
Like other prescription and over the counter drugs, the birth control pill is notorious for lowering folic acid. Make sure you know what nutrients the drugs you are taking are depleting.
To improve metabolic and endrocrine balance treat stress, get enough sleep, get exercise, balance estrogens and progesterones, reduce carbohydrate ingestion to reduce glycation and avoid xenobiotics, (environmental toxins)."

CoEnzyme Q10, lipoic acid and N Acetyl Carnitine are other anti-oxidants that help lower the oxidative damage of the mitochondria. (See July 24 2004 article).
Some drugs lower CoQ10."

Your Alzheimer and Stem Cell Resource Center: "Antioxidants such as beta carotene, lycopene, vitamin E and C and vitamin A are all found to be low in Alzheimer's patients, so this is a call for all physicians to act to prevent these deficiencies in the first place. Other anti-oxidants you may have heard about that are good for the brain include: ginkgo, lycopene, lutein, rosemary extract, resveratrol (purple grape), and green tea.
Homocysteine metabolism: 42 per cent of those with neurogenerative disorders have elevated homocysteine which indicates an insufficiency of any of B12, B6 and folic acid."

Keep your brain healthy Part 5


Your Alzheimer and Stem Cell Resource Center: "To lower oxidative stress: increase intake of anti-oxidants, increase omega 3 essential fats (EPA and DHA) in diet, reduce infections, avoid rancid fats and char broiled meats, and repair leaky gut. Avoid allergens, get enough oxygen and avoid smoking.
Vitamin C is another anti-oxidant to consider along with vitamin E and NAC (N Acetyl Cysteine). Having too much iron in the body is very oxidative. Make sure your ferritin levels are at 50 to 150 rather than 300. As your inflammatory status decreases, the ferritin also lowers along with CRP (C reactive Protein). "

Your Alzheimer and Stem Cell Resource Center: "Statin drugs for lowering cholesterol and levodopa for the treatment of Parkinson's are examples, both of which will increase mitochondrial dysfunction in the absence of CoQ10.
In the Archives of Neurologia there is a study with 80 PD who were given 1200 mg of CoQ10 and they had a 40 per cent reduction in their mental decline. No need to take so much CoQ10, as anti-oxidants are taken in concert to have their best effect and lower dosages are effective. "

Your Alzheimer and Stem Cell Resource Center: "The brain may be vulnerable to oxidative damage because it has a high energy requirement, a high oxygen consumption rate, is rich in fatty acids that easily oxidize and contains high levels of metals such as iron.
Four keys to optimal brain health are to 1) lower oxidative stress of the mitochondria 2) improve homocysteine metabolism, 3) improve metabolic and endocrine balance and 4) lower inflammation of the brain. "

The bad news is that neurotoxins such as mercury, when ingested after a fish meal, slow motor skills moments after ingestion. In other words, the brain is very vulnerable."
