Diet May Play a Key Role, as a Turning Point, in Most Alzheimers Cases (amazon) (shopzilla)

Miami, FL (PRWEB) April 02, 2012

A new report by University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX, states that compelling evidence links Alzheimer to multifactorial risk disorder resulting in low blood circulation to brain (chronic brain hypo-perfusion) during advanced aging. Nutri-Med Logic Corp adds that while the factors mentioned in this report, more specifically, micro-nutrients, trace metals, lipids and pro-oxidants are all associated with the diet but overwhelming number of studies have also pointed to excess pro-inflammatory nutrients, as a key and contributing factor in the development and progression of this diseases.

The study by the University of Texas states that two decades of research and over 73,000 research papers has not resulted in a significant progress as to why people get Alzheimer and what could be done to avoid it. Nutri-Med Logic Corp adds that The University of Texas correctly attempts to shift the focus from how to treat the symptoms to how to avoid the key causes of the Sporadic Alzheimer.

According to National Alzheimers Council, Sporadic Alzheimer constitutes 90-95% of Alzheimers cases.

The report blames, in part, micro-nutrients, trace metals, lipids and pro-oxidants as being involved in the development of oxidative stress and neuro-degeneration, in the presence of low blood flow to the brain, seen in Sporadic Alzheimer.

Department of Physiological Science, University of California at Los Angeles has studied the relationship between a diet high in saturated fat (lipids) and the decrease in the levels of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), which suggests a high-fat diet affects cognitive function.

According to the University of Miami, BDNF is essential for many functions such as neuronal growth and maturation. University of Miami further states that boosting BDNF is thought to be beneficial in several human disorders, including Alzheimers disease. (Nature Biotechnology, March 25, 2012.)

Studies have successfully incorporated the use of anti-oxidants as a mean to combat the drop in BDNF levels, due to oxidative stress caused by the high-fat diet. (Eur J Neurosci. 2004 Apr;19(7):1699-707.)

Attempts to increase the BNDF levels either through medication, gene therapy or simply through diet (anti-oxidants) coincides with the finding of the University of Texas, which points to lipids (fat) and pro-oxidant (causing oxidative stress) as two of the key factors.

While the high-fat diet is a matter of choice, factors such as metals and pro-oxidants are mainly counteracted by an internal antioxidant called Glutathione, which its levels drops by age. None-the-less, Glutathione can be increased through diet, more specifically through supplementation of a nutrient called R-Alpha Lipoic.

Additionally, several studies have determined that the structure within the neuronal cell membrane bilayer, more specifically Omega-3 (anti-inflammatory) / Omega-6 (Pro-inflammatory) ratio, is associated to detrimental or beneficial effects in Alzheimers.

In animal studies, Omega-6 (abundant in red meat) resulted in significantly higher secretion of Abeta-40 and Abeta-42 proteins (both implicated in Alzheimers) compared to Omega-3 diet and that an early-onset of Alzheimer’s has corroborated with the in-vitro findings that lower levels of Abeta in the brain were associated with low fat-diet enriched in Omega-3. J. of Biol. Chem. 2010 Oct 22. (Epub).

In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp, agreeing with University of Texas study, adds that in addition to the nutritional factors mentioned in the study, pro-inflammatory nutrients also play a key and fundamental role in the development and the progression of the Alzheimers.

Nutri-Med Logic Corp is the producer of the Natural, Balanced, Deodorized, Concentrated & Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3. Omega-3 is the most effective anti-inflammatory nutrient.

    DoctorsHealthPress.com Reports on Study Examining the Effects of Resveratrol on People with Mild to Moderate Alzheimers (amazon) (shopzilla)


    Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 27, 2012

    The Doctors Health Press, a publisher of various natural health newsletters, books and reports, including the popular online Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin, is reporting on a national clinical trial examining the effects of resveratrol on individuals with mild to moderate Alzheimers disease.

    As reported in Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin on Monday, May 24, 2012 (http://www.doctorshealthpress.com/anti-aging/try-this-antioxidant-to-fight-wrinkles ), resveratrol is found in red grapes, red grape juice, red wine, chocolate, tomatoes, and peanuts. Some studies suggest that resveratrol may prevent diabetes, act as a natural cancer fighter, ward off heart disease, and prevent memory loss. But, as of yet, there is no large definitive study of its effects in humans.

    The Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin article reports that most resveratrol studies showing any health benefits have been conducted in animal models, such as mice. With the new study, theyll find out if daily doses of pure resveratrol could delay or alter memory deterioration and daily functioning in people with Alzheimer’s. They may also find out if resveratrol improves glucose and insulin metabolism in older individuals.

    It should be noted that resveratrol is not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of Alzheimer’s. It is not known if resveratrol can change the course of the disease.

    The study will test resveratrol against placebo and no patients or staff members will know who has which pill. This is called “double-blind” and placebo-controlled. It will help ensure a reliable result, the gold standard for clinical studies.

    According to the Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin article, more than 5.3 million people in the U.S. have Alzheimer’s and, every 70 seconds, another person develops this disease. The resveratrol study will be conducted at 26 U.S. academic institutions that are affiliated with the Alzheimer’s Disease Cooperative Study. The participants will be asked to abstain from eating or drinking large quantities of foods or beverages that contain resveratrol, and abstain from taking dietary supplements containing resveratrol. This study will last 12 months.

      Minocycline Enhances the Efficacy of Perispinal Enbrel in Traumatic Brain Injury Treatment as well as Stroke Treatment and Alzheimers Treatment (amazon) (shopzilla)


      (PRWEB) March 08, 2013

      This study, http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/bph.12139/abstract soon to be published in the British Journal of Pharmacology and available now as an abstract online, delineates the mechanisms by which minocycline reduces inflammation. This peer-reviewed article critically reviews recent human and animal research demonstrating the potential for minocycline to provide neuroprotection and ameliorate the impairments experienced by those affected by traumatic brain injury (TBI), stroke and Alzheimer’s disease. The authors elucidate how minocycline exerts neuroprotective and neuroregenerative effects in response to TBI, stroke and Alzheimer’s. These processes are entirely different from those of etanercept. Perispinally administered etanercept inhibits the production of TNF-alpha in the brain. Minocycline also inhibits the production of TNF-alpha as well as a number of related cytokines. In 2012 Augusto Ramirez, M.D., began treating TBI, stroke and Alzheimers patients with perispinal Enbrel coupled with oral minocycline. The result has been improved outcomes. This article: Minocycline: Far beyond an Antibiotic provides broad scientific rationale for the inclusion of oral minocycline adjunctively with perispinally administered etanercept for the treatment of TBI, stroke and Alzheimer’s disease.

      Neurological Wellness Center began holding perispinal injection technique training courses in the spring of 2011. Since then physicians, nurses and lay caregivers have come from around the world to their Center in Managua, Nicaragua for individualized instructional courses teaching this procedure. Presently Neurological Wellness Center remains the only institution in the world teaching this perispinal Enbrel injection procedure. For more information about Neurological Wellness Centers perispinal injection courses visit: http://reversealzheimersnow.com.

      For many, flying to Managua, Nicaragua to receive this personalized training is an enormous expense and inconvenience. To overcome this problem, Neurological Wellness Center, under the direction of Augusto Ramirez, M.D., created Perispinal Enbrel Step-By-Step Instructional Video and accompanying e-book. This 24-minute video and 37-page e-book are now available online at http://www.neurological-recovery-guide.com.

      Augusto Ramirez, M.D., Director of Neurological Wellness Center, a private medical group in Managua Nicaragua, authorized this press release.

      Neuroinflammation contributes to a portion of the impairments people with Traumatic Brain Injury, stroke and Alzheimers disease experience. Last year a study published in the Journal CNS Drugs and available online: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23100196, systematically examined the clinical responses of 629 patients afflicted by stroke or traumatic brain injury following the perispinal administration of Enbrel (Etanercept). The mean age of the stroke patients was 65.8 years. The mean interval between stroke and perispinal Enbrel treatment (PSE) was 42.0 months. The mean age of the traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients was 34.7 years. The mean interval between TBI and PSE treatment was 115 months.

      Comprehensive pre-treatment and post-treatment assessments were made, with particular attention given to motor function, walking, pain, sensation, cognition and mood. A variety of standardized instruments were utilized in making these assessments. Neurological Wellness Center finds the results of this study to be extraordinarily noteworthy, not simply for the degree of the improvements observed but also for the extent of improvements across many areas of assessment. Equally striking was the rapidity of the improvement. Observations such as rapid motor improvement beginning within minutes: was routinely observed in both post-stroke and the TBI patients are ubiquitous throughout this observational study. The fact that the mean interval between stroke and PSE was 42.0 months and TBI and PSE 115 months makes these results even more remarkable. These results herald a new paradigm of understanding stroke and traumatic brain injury; whereby a self-perpetuating cascade of inflammation is produced in response to the trauma and the on-going inflammation contributes substantially to the impairments people experience. Once this inflammation is attenuated, significant recovery of physical and cognitive function becomes a reality these people experience often for the first time in years.

      “The addition of minocycline to our treatment protocol has resulted in improved treatment outcomes.” Augusto Ramirez M.D.

      Dr. Steve Ralph, Associate Professor at Griffith University School of Medicine in Australia came to our Neurological Wellness Center in Managua and received instruction in perispinal Enbrel injection procedure. Dr. Ralph has stated; “These results represent a sea change in therapeutic possibilities for stroke and TBI patients. I have observed first hand rapid clinical improvement in patients. Rarely do we see such a radical breakthrough in medical treatment as this.”

      The TBI treatment, stroke treatment and Alzheimers treatment protocols Dr. Augusto Ramirez utilizes all involve combining perispinal Enbrel injections with oral minocycline. Additionally, he advises supplementing with N-acetylcysteine, fish oil and astaxanthin.

        Research Proves Consuming Omega-3 Fatty Acids From Fish Oil Cuts Risk of Alzheimers and Dementia by 50% (amazon) (shopzilla)

        Sturgeon Bay, WI (PRWEB) August 25, 2012

        It is estimated that caring for the chronic diseases of the aging baby boomers (born 1946 to 1964) will cost in excess of $ 52 trillion. Expensive new medications for treatment will further increase this cost. About 14 million will develop Alzheimers disease, a cost that threatens to bankrupt the government, necessitating an overhaul in how healthcare is delivered. A fresh approach based on cost-effective preventative measures is mandatory. Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin Chiropractor Dr. J G Moellendorf, DC, ND, LCP discusses how natural interventions such as consuming omega-3 fatty acids could lower these costs with less side-effects.

        The British Medical Journal published a study on the effects of omega-3 fatty acids in ones diet. Of 1674 study participants aged 68 or older with no signs of dementia, 170 developed dementia in the next 7 years. Those who ate fish or seafood at least once a week showed significantly less cases of dementia compared to those who did not include fish or seafood in their diet.

        Many of the risk factors for development of Alzheimers disease are the same as those that lead to strokes and heart disease. The inflammatory processes that cause atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and thrombosis (blood clotting), are also closely linked to the development of -amyloid protein and the tau entanglements that cause the brain destruction seen in Alzheimers. Research done at the University of California, Los Angeles Departments of Medicine and Neurology by Cole, Ma, and Frautschy was published in Nutrition Reviews of December 2010. They found that the increased consumption of omega-3 fatty acids, not only reduces death by strokes and heart attacks by 19 to 45%, it also reduces the risk of dementia by 40 to 50%.

        A research paper by Gu, Schupf, Cosentino, et al. published in the May 2, 2012 edition of Neurology stated that the increased dietary consumption of omega-3 fatty acids reduce the production of -amyloid proteins by 37%. An earlier research study done at Boston University School of Medicine by Tan, Harris, Beiser, et al. published in the February 28, 2012 edition of Neurology established that increased omega-3 levels in the blood limits the formation of tau entanglements in the brain, improves synaptic membrane fluidity (affecting how nerves function), promotes nerve growth and repair, and has been shown to improve cognition (ability to perceive, think, and remember).

        Omega-3 fatty acids are relatively inexpensive as a supplement, and have shown no known side-effects. Along with omega-3 fatty acids, benefits have been shown in also taking anti-oxidants such as CoQ10 and vitamins C and E. Vitamin B-complex has also been shown to exert a strong protective effect on the brain in preventing dementia.

        Another critical factor that has been shown to slow the progression of dementia is keeping active. Often, the difficulty in the elderly staying active is that they ache all over or just dont feel good. When there is chronic stress on the joints, chronic inflammation is present which can lead to arthritis. When the stress is on the spinal joints due to old injuries or chronic poor posture, not only are the spinal joints affected, but the spinal nerves also become irritated. This can lead to many bodily conditions of not feeling right depending on what body systems the irritated nerves control.

        Moellendorf Chiropractic Office, Ltd. focuses on correcting joint dysfunctions, specializing in the spine, nerve function, and nutritional optimization for healing. By realigning the joints, stress is removed, the joints can function normally again, and irritated nerves can once again work properly. The patient can in turn return to normal activities, enjoying life as it was meant to be enjoyed.

            Dr. J G Moellendorf Offers 6 Dietary and Alternative Therapy Tips to Reduce the Risk of Alzheimer?s and Parkinson?s Diseases (amazon) (shopzilla)

            Sturgeon Bay, WI (PRWEB) November 06, 2012

            Over 5.4 million Americans are affected by Alzheimer?s disease. The incidence doubles with every 5 years beyond age 65. An additional 1.5 million people are affected by Parkinson?s, along with nearly 1 million with other dementias. Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin Chiropractor and Naturopath, Dr. J G Moellendorf, DC, ND, LCP notes that this has a huge financial cost on society for treatment and nursing home care, along with the emotional toll on the victim and his or her family. These tragic diseases threaten to bankrupt not only the family, but the nation itself.

            There are many genetic and environmental risks that lead to Alzheimer?s, Parkinson?s and the other dementias, but early recognition and natural preventative measures have been shown to delay and even halt their progression. Following are 6 tips that can be used to reduce the risks of dementias based on research from the past few years.

            1) Increase vitamin D

            Macrophages need to remove amyloid-? protein from the brain to avoid tau entanglement formations according to research published in the March 2012 issue of the Journal of Alzheimer?s Disease, Volume 29, Number 1. This process is dependant on an adequate supply of vitamin D. While the minimum recommended daily allotment has recently been increased to 400 IU, this should probably be increased to 1000 to 2000 IU daily to achieve this purpose.

            2) Increase omega-3 consumption

            The increased consumption of omega-3 fatty acids not only reduced death by strokes and heart attacks by 19% to 45%, it reduced the risk of dementia by 40 to 50% according to research published in the December 2010 issue of Nutrition Reviews, Volume 68. In addition, the May 2, 2012 edition of Neurology reports that the consumption of omega-3s reduces the production of ?-amyloid proteins of Alzheimer?s by 37%. The safest form of omega-3s is from molecularly distilled cold water fish oil as most fish have become contaminated with mercury and dioxins from pollution. Most adults need to consume 2000 to 3000 milligrams per day of combined EPA and DHA.

            3) Take a quality, food-based multi-vitamin/mineral supplement

            Many vital nutrients are missing due to food processing and growing food in depleted soils. A quality supplement can help replace these lost nutrients.

            4) Keep active

            There is truth in the old adage: move it or lose it. Keeping active has been shown to slow the progression of dementia. This often becomes difficult in the elderly because they ?ache all over? or ?just don?t feel good?. Chronic stress on spinal joints from poor posture and old injuries leads to chronic inflammation, which can result in arthritis. As the spinal joints become stiffer and misaligned, they can also irritate the spinal nerves, causing other problems depending on what body systems the nerves control. Spinal adjustments by a Doctor of Chiropractic can increase the spinal movement, decrease the aches and pains, and allow the nerves to work properly.

            5) Cold laser

            Brain aging is related to the accumulation of inflammation, oxidative damage to the cells, reduced metabolism, and possibly mitochondrial failure. Those with Alzheimer?s show decreased levels of the enzymes superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase in the plasma. This causes inadequate anti-oxidant enzymatic activity to counteract the production of free radicals in the cellular mitochondria. Research has shown that Low Level Laser Therapy(cold laser) increases the production of these critical enzymes.

            6) Lose the extra weight

            A study was published in Neurology on March 26, 2008 showing that central obesity (in the abdomen) during midlife increased the incidence of dementia by three times 30 years later. This dementia was independent of the increased cardiovascular and diabetes symptoms that also appeared. Obesity was defined as a caliper measurement from the front of the abdomen to the back exceeding 25 centimeters. Peripheral obesity (in the arms and legs) had no effect on the risk of dementia.

              Six Tips from Dr. J G Moellendorf for Reducing the Risk of Alzheimer?s and Parkinson?s Diseases (amazon) (shopzilla)

              Sturgeon Bay, WI (PRWEB) October 30, 2012

              Alzheimer?s disease affects over 5.4 million Americans, with the incidence doubling every 5 years beyond age 65. Parkinson?s affects an additional 1.5 million people, along with nearly 1 million with other dementias. Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin Chiropractor and Naturopath, Dr. J G Moellendorf, DC, ND, LCP notes that this has a huge financial cost on society for treatment and nursing home care, along with the emotional toll on the victim and his or her family. These tragic diseases threaten to bankrupt not only the family, but the nation itself.

              Many genetic and environmental risks lead to the dementias such as Alzheimer?s and Parkinson?s Diseases, but early recognition and natural preventative measures have been shown to delay and even halt their progression. Following are 6 tips to reduce the risks of dementias based on research from the past few years.

              1) Decrease (or eliminate) NSAIDs

              According to research published in the April 22, 2009 edition of Neurology, patients taking one NSAID daily (such as ibuprofen or naproxen) for at least 16 months, had a 66% increased risk of dementia, and a 57% increased risk of Alzheimer?s. While early studies suggested that NSAIDs may possibly delay the onset, they do not prevent and have no benefit in established dementias. The conclusion is that NSAIDs may reduce some of the chronic systemic inflammation that leads to dementia, but at the expense of liver and kidney damage. The reduction of inflammation is the key factor in decreasing the risk of getting Parkinson?s, Alzheimer?s, or the other dementias. This leads into the next several tips.

              2) Eliminate gluten consumption

              The gluten protein is difficult to digest. More than 40% of Caucasians have a genetic tendency toward gluten sensitivity, because they do not have the enzymes to fully break down gluten. As people age, enzyme production also decreases. The cytokines in the immune system then react to the undigested gluten amino acid chains as if they were bacterial invaders, resulting in inflammation. Avoidance of wheat, barley, and rye, such as in the Paleolithic diet, can stop this inflammatory process. Oats are often contaminated with wheat gluten in processing, and should be avoided unless guaranteed to be gluten free.

              3) Decrease copper intake

              The February 15, 2010 issue of Chemical Research in Toxicology pointed out that excessive copper becomes toxic to the cells by producing excess free radicals and inflammation. When rabbits were fed a diet to induce Alzheimer?s, the rabbits only did so when drinking tap water containing over 0.12 parts per million of copper, less than 10% the allowance of the Environmental Protection Agency. Since over 80% of American homes have copper pipes, alternatives such as reverse osmosis should be considered. Bottled water may or may not contain copper depending on its source. Since there is no copper deficiency in a balanced diet, multiple vitamin-mineral supplements containing copper may potentially also cause problems.

              4) Increase dietary cysteine

              The amino acid cysteine has also been found effective in binding copper to remove it from the brain. Common food sources of cysteine are red peppers, garlic, onions, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts. At least one meal per day should contain one or more servings of these foods.

              5) Increase zinc consumption

              The American Journal of Alzheimer?s Disease and Other Dementias, September 14, 2010, Volume 25, Number 7 reported that Alzheimer?s and Parkinson?s patients have significantly lower zinc in their blood. Zinc competes with copper in the brain, helping to eliminate excess copper. The report highlighted a 1992 study that demonstrated cognitive improvements of 80% when taking zinc for 6 months. The study suggested 25 to 50 milligrams of zinc daily.

              6) Increase dietary anti-oxidants

              The July 2004 issue of Neurological Research, Volume 26 reported that a high level of anti-oxidants were beneficial in slowing the progression of Alzheimer?s. Large doses of vitamin E were protective for the brain and nerves, and were even more effective when vitamin C and flavonoids were added. The study also reported that 600 milligrams daily of alpha-lipoic acid stabilized cognitive function in Alzheimer?s and dementia patients when taken for 11 months. Mitochondrial anti-oxidants such as CoQ10 (up to 1200 milligrams daily), ginkgo biloba, and vitamins B12, thiamine, and folate were also beneficial. Many of these anti-oxidants can be found in blueberries and cranberries.
