Alzheimer’s Disease

0-972618854-alzheimers-dis

Alzheimer’s Disease, named after German neurologist Aloysius Alzheimer, is medically defined as: “Presenile dementia, characterized by confusion, memory failure, disorientation, restlessness, agnosia, speech disturbances, inability to carry out purposeful movements, and hallucinosis. The disease usually begins in later middle life with slight defects in memory and behavior and occurs with equal frequency in men and women.” Mosby’s Medical Dictionary, 3rd edition, p. 49



Basically, Alzheimer’s disease is a condition of neurological atrophy or degeneration, more commonly known as dementia. An estimated 4 million U.S. citizens suffer from Alzheimer’s disease.




Causes and Risk Factors



It’s thought that Alzheimer’s Disease is caused by a combination of genetics, lifestyle and environmental factors. While the true cause isn’t known, the disease is marked by two distinct traits:


    •    Plaques-these clumps of protein may damage or destroy brain cells by blocking cellular communication
    •    Tangles-a vital protein called tau gets tangled, and prevent nutrients from reaching brain cells

Risk factors include:


    •    Age
    •    Family history and genetics
    •    Gender
    •    Heart health (such as high blood pressure)
    •    High cholesterol
    •    Diabetes
    •    Lifestyle
    •    Tobacco use
    •    Mild cognitive impairment (MCI)


Symptoms

Common symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease are:


    •    Memory loss
    •    Problems planning or resolving challenges
    •    Difficulty completing things at home or work
    •    Confusion with time or place
    •    Difficulty with spatial relationships
    •    Problems with using words while speaking or writing
    •    Losing things and not able to retrace steps
    •    Decreased or poor judgement
    •    Withdrawal from social situations
    •    Changes in mood or personality


Healing Alzheimer’s Disease Naturally

On the physical level, Alzheimer’s disease is the result of poor diet, lack of minerals and oxygen to the brain.

Pharmaceutical drugs can do more harm than good. A sick person doesn’t need drugs. They need nutrition, oxygen, alkalinity, solar energy (sunlight) and good vibrations.

Oxygenating and nervine herbs are needed to help heal from Alzheimer’s disease. Good oxygenating herbs include: gotu kola, gingko biloba, black walnut hulls, blessed (or holy) thistle, damiana, and yohimbe bark to name a few.

Gotu kola is perhaps the best herb for Alzheimer’s as this herb naturally contains bio-aluminum, which has an attraction for man-made aluminum. The bio-aluminum in gotu kola is negatively charged whereas man-made aluminum is positively charged, so gotu kola pulls harmful aluminum out of the body.

Good nervine herbs include kava kava, jatamansi, valerian root, chamomile, lavender flower (buds), skullcap, passionflower, catnip, St. John’s wort, lily of the valley, wild lettuce, blue and vervain.

Heavy metal toxicity is also greatly implicated in Alzheimer’s disease. The greatest culprit undoubtedly would have to be aluminum, a notorious waste product (though not classified as a heavy metal) that is disposed of via food and products that humans consume and utilize.

Aluminum is purposely put into many products that people use, including baking soda, antacids, antidiarrheal products, deodorants (listed as “alum”), commercial douche preparations, shampoos, and a host of food additives.

Other healing options are:


    •    A mentally stimulating job
    •    Mentally challenging leisure activities
    •    Frequent and meaningful social interaction
    •    Regular exercise such as walking or yoga


Dietary Intervention

Daily diet has to be modified. A raw foods vegan diet is best.

Animal products and byproducts in addition to refined grains help produce more mucus that will impair circulation of oxygen and nutrients through the blood stream. These things will only produce more mucoidal plaque, unhealthy cholesterol, and other debris that will stick to the walls of the arteries and impair healthy circulation.

If aluminum is in the food, then the aluminum just as the heavy metal toxins will deposit in the blood vessels of the brain and inhibit oxygen (due to inhibiting blood flow) which will cause deterioration of the brain and thus impair the mental faculties, i.e. memory, the thought process, cognition, etc.

So a raw foods vegan diet will be best for the healing of all degenerative diseases.

Good waters to drink for healing purposes include distilled water (as it attracts unhealthy mineral deposits) and alkaline water (which causes the tissues to dump off toxins).

A diet that is low-fat diet rich in fruit and vegetables, as well as heavy in omega 3 fatty acids can help, too.

He was taking allergy shots once a week for a year. He is allergic to everything...grass, trees; dustmites, soy, wheat, dairy, eggs. He now drinks rice milk and I order food online at ener_g foods such as breads, cookies etc that are made without all the things he is allergic to.

    Clearly he's toxic! Clean his body out and the problem will go away. Try CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) . Let him drink warm water and lemon juice (from fresh squeezed lemon) every day. Let him drink herbal tea of Mullein leaf and/or Eucalyptus. When he is bathing, drop in 6-8 drops of essential oil of Eucalyptus per bath and add 1 box of sea salt to every bath. Let him soak for 45 minutes or so. He can heal from this problem!

    Q: My daughter is currently taking Gingko Biloba + Gotu Kola (1 capsule), Magical Alchemical Elixir (2 drops twice daily), Cardio-Vascular Formula (3 capsules), Brain Tuner (3 capsules) and children detox from Dherbs. However, she still experience palpitation + mild seizure (raising of hands) every morning upon waking up. She experience mild fits once a day usually in her sleep/nap and get a severe seizure once every 10-12 days also during her sleep/nap. She was also diagnosed as Asperger Syndrome when she was seven and has improved considerably but not able to focus and easily get irritated. She likes to flipflop her hands a lot and always in wonderland during class. Not able to understand and totally lost in class though she has a very good memory. I also bring her to temple every week to pray and seek spiritual guidance and apply Reiki to her everyday. At present I just do not know what else to do to control her seizure and morning palpitation. Will Epson salt bath help in her epilepsy and anise powder water help in her palpitation. Your guidance and help is much appreciated.

    A:

    Something is going on while she's sleeping (visiting another realm). It sounds like it could be something from a past-life. Consider placing crystals near her bed and under pillow. Crystals such as amethyst, selenite, angelite, quartz, turquoise, black tourmaline, pink or purple lepidolite, lapis lazuli, sodalite, etc.

    Q: While I know by experience that herbs can have a healing effect, You say that clearly, "Sarcoidosis affects the glands", the inner and outer skin, and the lymphatic system. Sarcoidosis is a degenerative disease, and is therefore due to improper diet. You don't mention at any stage that it is an auto immune disease. To say that diet alone can cause one's immune system to attack the body, and major organs (which you don't mention anywhere) seems very simplistic. I may be wrong, but I hope you are not just raising hopes for all the sufferers out there. My sister has sarcoidosis.

    A:

    Beloved, why would I want to in futile and falsely raise innocent people's hopes and create bad karma for myself? I'm not one of the unscrupulous Christian ministers who do such, Beloved. I'm a wise natural healer. I have no incentive in raising false hopes. Life is not joke nor is suffering! Sarcoidoisis is a PREVENTABLE and REVERSIBLE disease which means it is diet related. A disease is preventable because eating wrong foods can be prevented. A disease is reversible because poor diet is reversible. Research the medical term "degenerative disease" and you'll understand where I'm coming from. I'm not one to embrace auto-immune disease because when the body turns on itself that's not natural. The person did something to make their body attack itself. People invite disease, Ma'am via WRONG DIET, WRONG THOUGHTS, WRONG ACTIONS, etc. If she was born with sarcoidosis, she picked up in life, a life that she led pursuant to her own free will. I say again: YOU CAN heal from any disease! If you believe you can, you can. If you believe you can't, you can't! It IS that simple! Jesus (not that you may be a Christian, I'm just quoting) stated: If thou canst belive, all things are possible to him that believeth!

    Yes, as long as they stay away from drugs (i.e. AZT), think positive, have a healthy attitude, change their diet, live healthy, etc. they will be just fine! They should also not identify with HIV either!

    Q: Nothing is stopping me except the lack of a workable plan of action, which I am in the process of putting on paper. There is a question that I've wanted to ask you for a while. Do you have or can you put together a sample daily menu of food choices based on what you eat, or what your research has shown to be good? I do have a couple of conditions I want to cure....

    Q: My grandmother's disease is getting progressively worse these days. Thus, I would like to know why you referred to the dementia as so-called? This has really peaked my curiosity, however, it is obvious that she is forgetting things and very confused about her day to day surroundings; ex: asks frequently to be taken to her home, although she's already there, can no longer drive, cook, or be left alone. She even thinks that her children are other people at times. To be quite frank, she is severely depressed, overweight, and has almost zero desire to do anything, but perhaps die as she often says. I think a great deal of this stems from the fact that she feels her independent life is gone. Yet, allof this is linked to the fact that she is forgetting how to do basic things. Sorry for the lack of brevity, but as you said, an attempt to ask or try, is better than not asking or trying at all.

    A:

    Start giving her our Brain Booster Tea and Tropical Tea daily to improve oxygen flow to the brain.

    Q: I have been diagnosed with Pityriasis Rosea which is a skin disease. The dermatologist can't tell me what causes this disease and has prescribed a topical steroid. I don't believe in taking all types of drugs when they can't tell me what causes this disease. Can you recommend anything since I refuse to take the steroids? Thanks for your help!

    A:

    Rosacea is caused by parasites and is considered a form of acne. I suggest you first detox with the FULL BODY DETOX, then perfomr the PARASITE AND WORM CLEANSE AND REGIMEN, and follow this up with the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. Use only good soaps like Kiss My Face and Grandpa Pine Tar soap. Use Bentonite Clay (available at health food stores) 2-3 times a week. Always apply OZ OIL to your face after washing and/or claying it. Buy a facial steamer and steam your face every day (c. 15-30 minutes).

    Q: What Causes Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura? A lack of activity in the ADAMTS13 enzyme (a type of protein in the blood) causes thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TPP). The ADAMTS13 gene controls the enzyme, which is involved in blood clotting. Not having enough enzyme activity causes platelets to clump together, forming blood clots. In TTP, when blood clots form, there are fewer platelets in the blood. This can cause bleeding into the skin (purpura), drawn-out bleeding from cuts, and internal bleeding. It also causes small blood clots to form suddenly throughout the body, including in the brain and kidneys. TTP also can cause red blood cells to break apart faster than the body can replace them. This leads to hemolytic anemia. My 25 yr. old niece has this very serious, rare disease, and I wanted to know if there is any natural herbs to that can help her heal this condition?

    A:

    There is plenty that can be done. Basically her blood needs to be addressed. This disease is perhaps mostly diet-related. Have her perform the FULL BODY DETOX. After the detox, put her on: BLOOD AND LYMPHATIC FORMULA , ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, VITAMIN C FORMULA, and KHEMETIAN GOLD and her situation will change for the better. She needs to change her diet too! More fruits and vegetables (and vegetable juice). Just stick with Dherbs and her situation will change. Stay positive!
