20 BEST TIPS FOR PREVENTING ALZHEIMER'S

This is an update of a prior post on Alzheimer's. I think it is important to remind everyone of tips on keeping the brain healthy so you can avoid Alzheimer's disease and other dementia. Some of the information is a repeat for those that did not read the prior post but this one includes more tips.

What is Alzheimer's disease? 
Alzheimer's is a type of dementia in which many functions of the brain are severely affected including memory, speech, visual perception, cognition, and weakness. The deterioration can occur slowly or rapidly. Although Alzheimer's appears to come on suddenly, it is usually years and decades of neuron death before symptoms appear. Usually the affected person has only 20% of the involved brain cells left at time of noticeable symptoms.

Why is short-term memory most affected in Alzheimer's disease?
The reason short-term memory is affected first is because it is the newest memory. The longer a memory is stored, the more resistant it is to brain injury or brain damage. So in Alzheimer's disease, the long-term memories are affected last, after loss of short-term memories.

What causes Alzheimer's disease?
Could it be a trauma or injury to the brain? Could it be stress? Could it be lifestyle? Could it be lack of a certain supplement? Could it be the processed foods we consume? Could it be excitotoxins? Could it be a combination of the above? The answer to the all the questions is yes.

If you have had brain injury, your risk is higher than those that have not. However, if you had repetitive brain injury caused from playing sports like football, your risk increases significantly, Ex-NFL players aged 30-49 have 19 times the risk of the non-NFL players in the same age group. (1)

Stress also tops the list as a trigger of Alzheimer's. In a study in Argentina, 3 out of 4 participants with Alzheimer's were found to have severe emotional stress during the two years prior to diagnosis.(2)  


Excitotoxins also appear to play a major role. The definition given by Dr. Russell Blaylock in his excellent book Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills describes excitotoxins as substances added to foods and beverages that stimulate neurons to death, causing brain damage of varying degrees. Excitotoxins include monosodium glutamate (MSG), aspartame (Nutrasweet), cysteine, hydrolyzed protein, and aspartic acid.


Biochemical examination of brains of those dying with Alzheimer's has shown that over 60% of NMDA type glutamate receptor neurons are destroyed. As a matter of fact, most neurons that are affected use glutamate or aspartate as their receptor. When MSG or aspartame is consumed in large dosages or injected in experimental animals, the neurons are killed or damaged similar to the way the cells in humans brains with Alzheimer's are damaged. What does this mean? The aspartame and the MSG added to many of our foods and soft drinks are affecting our brains. Excitotoxins accumulates in the brain so having a couple of soft drinks a week can still cause damage.

There are other facts that increase your risk of Alzheimer's disease. They include those who have chronic inflammation, hypoglycemia, and magnesium deficiency. Magnesium deficiency is critical because when brain magnesium levels are low, aluminum collects in the brain. High levels of aluminum do not directly cause Alzheimer's but it does inhibit production of acetylcholine which is important for memory functions of the brain.

What can you do to prevent or reduce your risk of Alzheimer's Disease? Here are the 20 best ways to reduce your risk.

A POST APOCALYPSE CHRISTMAS STORY

christmas cabin
This Christmas story has been contributed by Daisy Luther of The Organic Prepper.
It has been only 7 months since the lights went out, but it feels like forever. Some people call it the Apocalypse and consider it the worst disaster that the modern world has known. At our house, we call it the Change, because my mother says that just because it is different, doesn’t mean that it’s the end of the world, and that words matter. Whatever you call it, though, the day the lights went out is the day that everything in our world became dramatically different.
 The days go on and on, blending into one another with the sameness of our tasks.  I don’t go to school anymore because there is no school. My mother teaches me at night, when we leave the door to the wood stove open to preserve our precious candles, but still have light bright enough to read by.
I never thought I would long for gym class or for the school cafeteria, but I do. I miss hanging out with the other kids, sitting around the table making fun of the food, and being in the classroom, learning about the things that I used to consider incredibly boring. If I had only known then what true boredom was I would have cherished the time to just be a kid. I would have delighted in every bite of food that I didn’t have to harvest myself.
Instead of school, I work to keep us fed and warm. I work in the garden in warm weather.  My mother walks with a cane, so it is my responsibility to be her legs. I walk in the woods near our house and look for anything that might be edible or useful.  I collect branches and twigs in the cold weather.  Staying warm and fed is the focus of our daylight hours, and those two tasks take up nearly every minute that the sun is up.

UPDATE TO NDAA CONTINUES TO DESTROY FREEDOMS

ndaa flag
While everyone is distracted with the holiday festivities, Congress has been hard at work, screwing us over in the name of national security.
Yesterday the 2014 National Defense Authorization Act was fast-tracked through the Senate, with no time for discussion or amendments.  And you know, its Christmastime, so they just passed it so that they could recess for the holidays. The new version of the NDAA has already been quietly passed by the House of Representatives.
It authorizes massive spending, including $527 billion in base defense spending for the current fiscal year, funding for the war in Afghanistan, and funding for nuclear weapons programs.
The indefinite detention allowed by the original NDAA is still here, and it’s actually worse now, because there are provisions that will make it easier for the government to target those who disagree.  Section 1071 outlines the creation of the “Conflict Records Research Center”, where the unconstitutionally obtained information that the NSA has collected is compiled and shared with the Department of Defense.  The information, called in the wording  “captured records,” can be anything from your phone records, emails, browsing history or posts on social media sites.
The New American reports in detail on the expansion of powers:
For two years, the NDAA included provisions that purported to authorize the president of the United States to

CHEMTRAILS: THE MARCH AGAINST THE POISONING OF OUR PLANET

One January 25, 2014, there will be a global march against chemtrails and geoengineering. Please get involved in your area. There is no more important issue today than to stop the poisoning of our planet, plants, animals, and ourselves. 

Chemtrails are chemicals dumped from planes from the sky for weather modification or other purposes such as global vaccination or depopulation (this one is hard to believe).  These chemicals include, but are not limited to, aluminum, barium, strontium, and manganese. Governments around the world been spraying since the 1990s but it has gotten much worse and more widespread in recent years. In addition, Monsanto (of course) paid $1 billion for a climate control company a couple of months ago.  Please watch the shocking video below especially if you think chemtrails is a conspiracy theory. It will change your mind and make you angry. It is worth every minute of your time.   

In the last four days, I have seen significant spraying every day. In the past I've seen spraying one or two days a month.  Just look up more often. You'll know what I am talking about. If we don't stop this now, within 10 to 15 years, neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, MS, essential tremor, and all cancers will be inescapable by everyone. There will be no escape no matter how much organic food you consume. These chemicals get in the soil and change the pH and composition even so growing your own food won't help.  Even if you use a greenhouse, you are still breathing the air and drinking the water. These chemicals are in the form of nano particles which can't be filtered from the air or the water.  

There is nothing more issue today than stopping global governments from spraying toxic chemicals and destroying life. See the links below or Google geoengineering, HAARP, weather modification, and chemtrails for more information.  But most importantly fight to stop toxic spraying of chemicals and share this information with everyone you love and care about.

OBAMACARE HELPS HOOKERS WITH PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS

As many know, prostitution is legal in Nevada in certain areas and establishments. Well, the hookers at the Moonlite Bunny Ranch are excited over Obamacare.  Their pre-existing conditions are now covered. 

Says the owner of the ranch, "I have mixed feelings. I’m glad the girls are going to be able to get affordable healthcare coverage but as a businessman, I’m really concerned. There’s one common thread. I’m the sole stockholder but because I’m the owner for all these different businesses, they lump them together. What am I going to do? I’m either going to have to spend a lot of money  on health insurance because the rates are going up or I’m going to have to face severe penalties, so I’m really perplexed about all of this.” 

Perplexed?  I'm more than perplexed. My tax dollars is going to subsidize pre-existing conditions of Nevada prostitutes and birth control pills.  


FIVE HOLIDAY FOODS THAT PROMOTE CANCER AND DIABETES

The five holiday foods that promote cancer, diabetes, heart disease and premature death are the following 

1. Artificially colored Christmas cookies.  Christmas cookies look nice but have green and red dyes in those pretty sprinkles. Red dyes, especially have shown to cause hyperactivity in children. Sugar cookies are loaded with (you guessed it) sugar! If you must make them at all, sprinkle them with organic cane sugar and reduce the amount of sugar by 1/3 to 1/2. 

2. Anything made with vegetable shortening. Loaded with artery clogging trans fats. Instead, substitute organic butter or coconut oil. 

3. Processed meats with sodium nitrate. Everyone likes to give those lovely gift baskets with filled with meats and cheeses. In order for the meats to stay fresh, they are loaded up with with preservatives and sodium nitrate. If you get one of these baskets, throw the meats away or give away to your enemies (just kidding). Don't send these baskets to your loved ones unless they come from an organic food company or better yet make them yourself and hand deliver if they live nearby.

4. Eggnog drinks.  If people really thought about what was in eggnog drinks, they wouldn't drink them. Raw eggs! Yuk. Besides, they are high in high fructose corn syrup (GMO), hydrogenated fats, hormones, and calories.  Make your own instead with sweetened almond or soy milk.  Just add rum.

5. Stuffing.  Seriously, I could not find a packaged stuffing mix without a long list of chemicals including MSG, GMO corn, and hydrogenated fats. Just buy or make some chemical free french bread and make your own. All you need is vegetable broth, celery, poultry seasoning, sage, salt, and pepper. It's so easy, my daughter has made it the last couple of years.

MAKING A KILLING WITH CANCER: A 124.6 BILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY

blood money
If you had a business selling something that made you well over a hundred billion dollars per year, would you take steps to eradicate the need for your business? Or would you make every effort for that money continue rolling in?
Take cancer, for example.  Don’t let all the media hype about “The Cure” fool you.  No one who is in a position to do so wants to end cancer because they are all making a killing on the big business of treatment, while ordinary people go broke, suffer horribly, and die.
There will never be a “cure” brought to market because there just isn’t enough profit in eradicating the disease entirely.  There will never be a governing body that protects consumers from being subjected to known carcinogens, because that too, will stop the cash from rolling in. A great deal of research is covered up and many potential cures are ignored and discredited because there is far more money in perpetuating illness than in curing it. In 2012, the reported spending on cancer treatment was 124.6 billion dollars.  Blood money.

The Grim Statistics

Just the word “cancer” sends a frisson of fear down the spine of the most stalwart optimist.  Terrifyingly, almost one in two people will get the dreaded disease, and the numbers are only getting worse.  Here are some quick stats for background:
  • Nearly half of all Americans will develop cancer in their lifetime. (source) Quick math tells us that is an astonishing 157 million victims.
  • Over half a million people in America died of cancer in 2012. (source)
  • In 2011, cancer was the #1 cause of death in the Western world, and #2 in developing countries. (source)
  • Cancer is the #1 cause of childhood death in the United States. (source)
This is a fairly recent increase.  A hundred years ago, the number was far different.  At that time, 1 in 33 people was stricken with the disease. And despite billions of dollars being spent to find “the cure”, the World Health Organization predicts that deaths from cancer will DOUBLE by the year 2030.
It’s being normalized.  The news is full of photos of babies who are missing an eye, of beautiful bald children who have lost their hair to chemo, and of people who have had to have body parts removed in order to survive a few more years.  But cancer is NOT normal. It isn’t something that “just happens”.  Researchers know the things that cause cancer.  Government protection agencies do too, but they do nothing to limit these toxins in the marketplace.
Why?

MORE ADHD INSANITY: 20% OF BOYS "DIAGNOSED "

More on the insanity of diagnosing children with ADHD especially boys who seem to get double the diagnoses than girls. As I mentioned in my prior post  "Are Mental Disorders Such as ADHD Real or Fake?", this makes sense because boys need more physical activity then girls and with our current school system and life style of sitting in front of a computer or TV, they are not getting it. A good reason to homeschool your children. No ADHD diagnosis and no vaccines.

According to J.D. Heyes at Natural News, in the CDCs study, the percentage of U.S. children between the ages of 4 and 17 years who have been labeled with the diagnosis rose to a 42 percent between 2003 and 2011. What? 42 percent? In addition, the study found that kids in public health programs (Medicaid and State Children's Health Insurance Program) were 53 percent more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD than children with private health insurance. That means you and I are paying for this with tax dollars.

ARE MENTAL DISORDERS SUCH AS ADHD REAL OR FAKE?

Is attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) real? 

Did you know that there is not one mental illness that can be determined by a blood test? 

When the school psychologist tells you your child has ADHD and prescription pills such as Ritalin will help, do you believe him or her? 

If you do, you are crazier than they are. 

There's no denying that hyperactivity exists. But maybe, just maybe it is not a mental illness. If it were, why did it not exist 100 years ago? Here's a theory. Children back then were given much more physical and creative activity in a school day.  And when they weren't in school, they were outside biking or playing. 

Boys, especially, need lots of physical activity. Budget cuts during the last couple of decades took care of most PE and artistic programs. 

Some recent studies are revealing that many hyperactive children were actually very creative children who had their creative side suppressed with drugs. Many of these children grow up, stop taking their drugs and discover their creative side. No surprise here.  

Now let's compound the lack of activity and lack of creativity with increased sugar and stimulant consumption. Then throw in some artificial dyes which cause hyperactivity in many children. Let's not forget some neurotoxins in the form of pesticides and herbicides in all food not labeled organic. Then let's add in some non-organic hormone-filled milk (compliments of Monsanto in the 1990s). Hormones in dairy can mess with the body's natural hormones and cause a host of problems for children including early puberty. Imagine going through puberty at 8 or 9 years old as many children are today.  Do you think any of this has to do with the "attention deficit" and "hyperactivity" problems of today's youth? 

Let's recap. We force children to sit for hours a day doing activities they mostly don't enjoy, give them sugar, caffeine, chemicals, food dyes, artificial hormones, pesticides and herbicides and expect them to behave? They are not the ones with the mental illness. We are for allowing the public school systems to bore our children and food manufacturers to poison our children.    

What can you do? Instead of allowing your children to sit again when they get home watching the idiot box or playing video games, make them move for an hour either by doing chores or exercise. Biking, walking, and yard work are all acceptable ways to move. 

Secondly, reduce or eliminate hyperactivity in children by doing the following:

1. Eliminate caffeine and processed foods with dyes and preservatives. 

2. Reduce sugar to a minimum (30 grams per day). Don't forget fruit juices are high in sugar. Best to eliminate them or dilute them with water but buy 100% juice. 

3. Buy mostly organic produce. Eliminate the 12 most contaminated if you cannot afford all organic. 

4. Only buy organic soy and corn or not at all. More than 70% of these crops are genetically modified. There has been no safety test performed on humans. May be another culprit in behavioral problems. 

5. If you child has acne, aches and pains, irritability, digestive problems, or has already been labeled hyperactive, then also eliminate wheat. Modern wheat is not easily digestible and can cause a host of physical and emotional problems even in those without Celiac disease.

6. Reduce gut inflammation which has been linked to ADHD by giving them foods with probiotics or feeding them organic plain yogurt (with fresh or frozen fruit and honey for sweetener) every day.

7. Eliminate trans fats and partially hydrogenated fats from their diets and add omega 3s which have been shown to nourish and calm the brain.         

Thirdly, see the links below for more information on how the mental health industry "develops" mental disorders, reasons on psychiatrists will profit from the implementation of Obamacare, and more about ADHD.
