Spice Up Your Memory with Just 1g of Turmeric Daily

0-469928287-fotolia-62168381-subscription-monthly-m

Adding just one gram of turmeric to breakfast could help improve the memory of people who are in the very early stages of diabetes and at risk of cognitive impairment.

The finding has particular significance given that the world’s ageing population means a rising incidence of conditions that predispose people to diabetes, which in turn is connected to dementia.

Early intervention could help to reduce the burden, whether by halting the disease or reducing its impact, said Emeritus Professor Mark Wahlqvist, from the Monash Asia Institute at Monash University.

Professor Wahlqvist recently led the study that that tested the working memory of Taiwanese men and women aged 60 or older who had recently been diagnosed with untreated pre-diabetes.

“Working memory is widely thought to be one of the most important mental faculties, critical for cognitive abilities such as planning, problem solving and reasoning,” he said.

The study noted that cognitive impairment is often seen in association with hyperglycaemia, in diabetes and pre-diabetes. Indeed since pre-diabetes has a comparable if not greater prevalence than diabetes, neuro-degeneration and memory loss at this stage could slow or even halt the progress of both diabetes and dementia.

“Assessment of working memory is simple and convenient, but it is also very useful in the appraisal of cognition and in predicting future impairment and dementia.”

Just 1 g per day

In the placebo-controlled study, subjects were given one gram of turmeric with an otherwise nutritionally bland breakfast of white bread. Their working memory was tested before and some hours after the meal.

“We found that this modest addition to breakfast improved working memory over six hours in older people with pre-diabetes,” Professor Wahlqvist said.

Turmeric is widely used in cooking, particularly in Asia. Its characteristic yellow colour is due to curcumin, which accounts for 3-6% of turmeric and has been shown by experimental studies to reduce the risk of dementia.

“Our findings with turmeric are consistent with these observations, insofar as they appear to influence cognitive function where there is disordered energy metabolism and insulin resistance,” Professor Wahlqvist said.

The study, which was published in the Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition, also involved a number of research institutes in Taiwan.

    Q: My grandmother has been diagnosed with alzheimer's and dementia... She is taking medications for her memory Namenda, which is doing no justice. and Duloxetine (Cymbalta).... Are there any alternatives to these medicines. We are no longer going to be giving her the Namenda. Any suggestions on which pills I should purchase for her?

    A: It would be in your grandmother's best interest to do the Full Body Cleanse. The Full Body cleanse is a detox program that eliminates toxins and waste from the body that often contributes to things like memory issues and certain health ailments. In doing the cleanse, you're detoxing all of the major organs giving the body and the immune system the reset it needs to function how it should. The cleanse helps pull the aluminum and other heavy metal toxins that often plays a major role in Alzheimer's and Dementia. After cleansing we suggest taking the Brain Booster, Nerves Formula and the Magical Alchemical Elixir to specifically help bring recovery from the conditions of Alzheimer's and Dementia. The Oxy Drops could also help promote more oxygen to the brain.

    Q: Is there anything that will slow the progress of early onset dementia. My brother has been diagnosed at age 54 as having the brain of a 84 year old man, via a MRI. His doctor said Ariset would not help him as the white matter of his brain has covered the front and back of his brain

    A:

    For dementia, I recommend NERVES FORMULA, CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM FORMULA, and BRAIN TUNER.

    Q: Is there a regime for dementia/Altzheimers like symptoms? My husband was diagnosed hiv+ 6 years ago. He stopped taking medication 3 years ago when I shared all info I could on hiv/aids myth/hoax. Unfortunately my husband is not sure what is true and I am afraid that the stress of this diagnosis has planted the seeds for his current physical and mental decline. He suffers from chronic bronchitis, body aches/pains, extreme weight loss, depression and now has memory loss and is often disorientated in his own home. For the past six months I have been able to get him to eat a predominately raw fruit and vegetable diet. Two weeks ago he was admitted to the hospital because he passed out while taking a hot bath. Several tests were done. We refused to have the hiv test done. Needless to say this got back to his VA doctors who now believe that all of this is due to him being non compliant to taking his hiv meds. In a follow up meeting they now declare that my husband has full blown AIDS and will die in six months if he does not take medication. Can your detox regime help now and what about the dementia-like symptoms? Is there a product/herb that can help this? I can make sure that the diet is raw.

    A:

    AIDS and HIV is a full blown hoax used on the ignorant, fearful, government-dependent, irresponsible, immature, and unconscious American people (95% of them, at least) to control them and make money off of them in the process. I would suggest your husband start reading as many of our free health articles as possible to help change his mindset which is the only thing that can kill him, of course with corresponding physical actions. Your husband can save his life by performing the FULL BODY DETOX kit, followed by the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN, followed by the RESPIRATORY CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. After these kits, if he takes 5 capsules of ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD 5-6 times a day and drink 1-2 cups of RAINFOREST TONIC TEA and BRAIN TUNER TEA, he will be amazed at how he feels. Dementia: take 3 capsules of BRAIN TUNER daily! There's so much your husband can do to reclaim his health and life. But it all starts in the mind. We are here to assist if he so desires the assistance.

    Q: I understand by reading your articles, and other related areas of study that the organs in the body are intelligent and have memory. The topic of organ donors comes up from time to time, and most recently in regard to recently deceased NFL player Chris Henry, whose family gave his eyes and other organs up. What is your perspective on this issue?

    A:

    I respect free will, but our organs should never be donated. Never! The only exception is if the organs are coming from a very highly and spiritually evolved person (which is rare in our society). Organs carry memory. If you're born with organs you should die with them.

    Q: What alternatives to the comomon diabetes medicines such as Actos and Glucophage do you recommend? Recently CNN did a piece on herbalist in Iraq and their success. Even the interviewer tried a remedy to help her sleep and she admitted it worked. She slept through the night. Her producer took twice the dosag and he slept through the night and the next day. Just thought I'd share that. I am begining to beleive that many of the cures for health challenges like diabetes will never be revealed by the traditional medical organizations. Any information you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

    A:

    I suggest you perform Dherbs PANCREAS CLEANSE AND REGIMEN followed by a daily regimen of PANCREAS AUXILIARY FORMULA , PANCREAS FORMULA , and Sugar Buster. Please read our â€DIABETES†article on our site for more information on how to heal from diabetes. Government will always suppress natural cures because it's easier to control sick people as well as pimp them for their hard-earned money. There's no incentive for healing people. It would put doctors and hospitals out of business.

    Q: Your article was extremely thorough and sound concerning Diabetes, it's causes and remedies. However, I sort of lost you on weather juvenile diabetics can really be helped by natural remedies? After all, they have a non-functioning pancreas. Can it really be really be revived? If one had diabetes for 50 years. Is there really any hope for reviving the pancreas naturally, without inserting insulin any more? Please let me know, in my friends case, she had hepatitis before becoming a diabetic at age 14. There is a theory that this disease somehow instituted the destruction of the pancreas. Could it be, that insulin production was literally destroyed never to start again. Have you had other diabetics who were Type 1 recover totally from the disease? Especially after the pancreas has been shut down for so many years.

    A:

    Beloved, there are no exceptions with natural healing. As long as the body is alive, the organs are alive, though they may be taxed. Give them what they need and simply watching the healing take place. Healing is simplistic! Nature does not categorize disease, e.g. Diabetes Type 1, Type 2. Nature heals what needs to be healed!

    Q: I have been experiencing diabetes for 14 years, using insulin twice daily along with another diabetes control pill (januvia). This has all been to no avail as I continue to suffer from the disease along with hypertension. As someone who has practiced spiritual principles for many, many years, I feel that I am pretty much in tune with my True Spirit. However, I realize that my eating habits and the use of medications are aiding in the continuance of the seeming illness. I would love to try your product but I have for many years suffered from a lost of control of appetite. The only program that has ever really helped to decrease my appetite was Atkins diet, which is near impossible to stay with. I lost weight and the sugars decreased. However, I was not able to continue eating only meats and virtually no fruit or veggies and therefore gained all the weight back. I even has a lap band inserted, which did nothing for the decrease of my appetite and I consequently found foods to eat which would go through the band. Please help!!

    A:

    Your situation is psychological and emotional in nature. Our Pancreas kit will greatly assist you (physically) in healing from diabetes. Please read our "Diabetes" article to better understand this insidious disease. You have work to do within, Beloved!

    Q: I have been experiencing very trying health issues for many years (over 25 years). The trouble began when my gall bladder was removed 26 years ago. I had mood swings, lack of energy, and severe diarrhea. Approximately 13 years ago I had an additional surgery for an umbilical hernia. Due to pre-op tests, my physician diagnosed me with thyroid disease and placed me on synthroid. This medication dramatically improved the digestive issues I had experienced for many years. I had very loose bowels when menstruating and when I was ill. I am overweight and have dealt with weight issues all my life. Three years ago I had a scare where I thought I experienced a heart attack. I spent three days in the hospital and learned of many health risks. My triglycerides were extremely high along with my sugar being borderline. I have been tested for diabetes on a number of occasions in my life but never show to be. There are numerous cases of diabetes in my family. My mother and one sister are insulin dependent and one other sister is on some form of pill medication for diabetes. At that time, I gave up sugar and began a regime at the gym. The have not eaten any sweets other than what I get in a little ketchup occasionally or some other kind of sauce that may contain some sugar. I have gone to the gym with minimal results in losing weight. I had a total hysterectomy six weeks ago. My regular GP has been on vacation and I've been dealing with one of her associates. This dr. sent me in for glucose tolerance and she has since diagnosed me as Type II Diabetic. She put me on a medication called "Metformin" and has me taking a 500 mg pill twice daily. I have only been on this medication for three days. I have been very careful to eat only what they say I can. I am experiencing the same issues as before with the diarrhea. Last night I was up all night with this and it is like water coming out of me. I am unable to find a physician who understands that I want to lose the weight, but cannot when I'm constantly dehydrated and feeling lethargic. When I have this constant problem, I am not able to do what I need to do for my overall health. Sorry to be so wordy but I wanted to explain the full extent of what I am experiencing. My friend told me to get on this website and explain my issues. He feels that you may be able to guide me in the direction of a natural product or products that can help me to have normal bowel movements and therefore begin doing the physical exercise that is needed for me to reduce my chances of becoming an insulin dependent diabetic.

    A:

    I WOULD LIKE FOR YOU TO FIRST TRY THE FULL BODY DETOX (TAKING THINGS ONE DAY AT A TIME). AFTER THIS CLEANSE, I WOULD LIKE FOR YOU TO PERFORM THE PANCREAS CLEANSE AND REGIMEN . LET'S TAKE THIS SLOWLY AND GET YOU BACK TO OPTIMAL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING. FIRST THINGS FIRST, OKAY? ALSO, PLEASE CONSIDER A CONSULTATION AS THERE'S ONLY SO MUCH TIME I CAN GIVE TO RESPONDING VIA E-MAIL DUE TO ALL THE E-MAILS WE GET DAILY.YOU CAN HEAL. JUST CONCENTRATE ON HEALING, NOT DIABETES. LET'S START HERE, OKAY?

    Q: I have a friend with Pancreatic cancer, stage 4, plus diabetes. Do you know of anyone who has survived stage 4-pancreatic cancers with your herbs? Are you aware of any info on curing it with habaneras peppers?

    A:

    I DON'T RECALL ANYONE WITH PANCREATIC CANCER PERFORMING MY HERBS FOR THIS KIND OF CANCER, WHICH IS THE MOST DEADLIEST FORM OF CANCER. MY MOTHER PERISHED FROM IT IN 1999. IT IS VERY INSIDIOUS. A PERSON MUST BE DISCIPLINED AND DO EVERYTHING WITHIN THEIR POWER TO EAT RIGHT AND BASICALLY OVERDOSE ON ALL GOOD THINGS. HABANEROS PEPPERS ALONE WILL NOT CURE PANCREATIC CANCER. YOU MUST GIVE THE PERSON GREEN FOODS LIKE VEGETABLE JUICE, ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOODELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, FULL BODY DETOXFULL BODY DETOX, KHEMETIAN GOLD, OXY-DROPS, ETC. For diabetes take the PANCREAS CLEANSE AND REGIMEN .
