Alzheimer’s Nutritional Protocol

  • Dear Readers,

    Welcome to the March 2018 issue of TotalHealth Magazine Online.

    This month's book review is "The Craving Cure: Identify Your Craving Type to Activate Your Natural Appetite Control" by Julia Ross. Thousands of her clients have cut their craving for high-calorie confection using her nutritional strategy and stopped gaining weight.

    Dallas Clouatre's, PhD, article, "Liver Dysfunction and the Metabolic Syndrome— Chicken, Egg or Both?" "At the core of Syndrome X, now much more commonly known as the metabolic syndrome, are dysregulations and dysfunctions involving glucose and insulin. These manifest as central obesity (excessive fat around the belly), high blood pressure and blood fat disorders—especially hypertriglyceridemia and low levels of HDL cholesterol." Thinking about these conditions has previously been treated as separate identities—changing over the past decade to a linked view.

    Gene Bruno, MS, MHS, RH(AHG), presents "Fighting (And Preventing) The Flu: Dietary Supplements Support." Gives us five dietary supplements which may give us defense against the flu. Bruno describes the symptoms, and its cycle from school age children through the elderly as the most susceptible.

    Ann Louise Gittleman, PhD, CNS, continues The Smart Fats Series with "How Smart Fats Reset Metabolism," featuring the thyroid. Among the experts quoted is Dr. William Davis, suggesting that today's "Frankengrain" is nothing like what went into your grandmother's bread. Modern wheat contains 10 times more gluten than that of 50 years ago. Today's gluten is high in gliadin, a protein that is foreign to our bodies. It highly resembles a crucial enzyme known as transglutaminase, which is concentrated in the thyroid. As the immune system attacks the gliadin, antibodies also attack the thyroid. The immune system can then go into overdrive, damaging the thyroid, sometimes for up to six months. And that's all thanks to gluten."

    Gloria Gilbère, CDP, DAHom, PhD, presents "Easter is April 1st, No Joke! Why not "Stand-Up" to Deviled Eggs?" Another of her signature inflammation and nightshade free recipes. Includes the health benefits of all the ingredients. "These deviled eggs are naturally colored and a healthy, sweet n' spicy twist on traditional deviled eggs. With a super-smooth, creamy filling of chopped bread-n-butter pickles and Greek yogurt, these deviled eggs are perfect for your next party, potluck or Easter celebration!" Gilbère goes on to explain how the nightshades—even small amounts can—affect individuals with or recovering from fibromyalgia.

    Charles K. Bens, PhD, shares "Modified Alzheimer's Nutritional Protocol," for people with some beginning symptoms, the following modified nutritional program may "likely be sufficient to slow symptom progression and perhaps delay symptoms."

    Adrea Brier, CNHP, CLC, JSJ asks "Can We Really Be Healthier Living With Cancer?"

    Shawn Messonnier, DVM, consults this month on, "Rickettsial Diseases in Pets." For owners who do not like giving their pets medication, or for those pets who don't take the supplements easily, it might be wise to try some of these medically formulated diets, available from your pet's doctor, that contain the fatty acids.

    Best in health,

  • For people who have used the early warning diagnostic tools from “Is Alzheimer’s Preventable” and show none of the typical symptoms of Alzheimer’s, or some beginning symptoms, the following modified nutritional program will likely be sufficient to slow symptom progression and perhaps delay symptoms indefinitely. Here are the basic elements of this modified program, which may be easier to implement and less expensive, compared to the original comprehensive program.

    1. The first step is to follow the Mediterranean Diet with emphasis on vegetables being about 40 percent of caloric intake. (8–10 helpings per day.)

    2. Eat as many detoxifying foods as possible, such as cabbage, celery, curry, asparagus, garlic, spinach, kelp, spirulina, wheat grass, silica water (Fiji or Volvic) and green tea.

    3. Use exercise, sauna or steam bath to remove toxins.

    4. Use meditation, yoga, music, deep breathing or tai chi to reduce stress.

    5. Chew your food very thoroughly and eat in a peaceful place with family and/or friends.

    6. Drink a green powdered drink every day; one with a high ORAC value such as Greens First.

    7. Use the following nutritional supplements from a quality company such as Source Naturals, Metagenics, Life Extension or MyGreenVillage.

    • Take a multiple vitamin and mineral supplement.
    • Use probiotics in the morning about 15 minutes prior to breakfast. Take with an organic yogurt.
    • Take a digestive enzyme with each cooked meal or with every meal if you have digestive issues.
    • Take a vitamin B complex (100 strength) preferably with the dinner meal. Helps make neurotransmitters.
    • Take a sublingual vitamin B 12 1000 mcg, preferably in the morning. Alzheimer's protection.
    • Take vitamin D3 in gel form throughout the day. From 1000 IU to 10,000 IU depending on blood levels, which should be maintained at 50-90 ng/ml. Antioxidant and genetic protection.
    • Take vitamin C in Ester or Liposomal form at 1500-3000 mg/day. Take in split doses with each meal for antioxidant protection.
    • Take omega 3 oils at 2000-4000 mg ( DHA and EPA). Take in split doses with each meal.
    • Take curcumin at 750-2000 mg/day. Take in split doses for amounts over 750 mg. Anti-inflammation.
    • Take Co-enzymes Q 10 at 300-1200 mg/day, depending on energy levels and other conditions such as heart, kidney or liver issues, which need more Co Q10. Energy and DNA protection.
    • Take astaxanthin at 4 mg/day in the morning for antioxidant protection.
    • Take magnesium glycinate at 400 mg in the morning. Helps with insulin and glucose absorption.
    • Take coconut oil or MCT powder at 3-20 grams/day. Easier to take with green drink in a shake.
    • Known to help with Alzheimer's.
    • Take Lithium orotate at 5-20 mg/day as directed by your primary care physician. Prevents damage to the brain from toxins and grows new brain cells to prevent brain shrinkage.
    • Take phosphatidylserine at 200-500 mg to improve communication between neurons.

    8.Dosage depends on your doctor's recommendations and the use of tests such as the IGG test for food sensitivities and the Spectro Cell Test for nutritional supplement needs and sensitivities.

    This nutritional protocol is based on the program, Is Alzheimer's Preventable? by Healthy at Work, November 2017, as well as a clinical trial by Dr. Dale Bredesen reported in AGING, September 2014, Vol.6 No.9.
