As a Naturopath Doctor, I have seen warning signs in early onset dementia and Alzheimer’s patients. I have observed how these folks seem to have lost their zest for life. It is difficult to grasp the truth that they are actually creating their own demise. I have listen to them ask me repeatedly to explain, one more time, why their inability to digest protein is the very reason for their sadness and forgetfulness. Grown men whine like a baby when I suggest they give up their booze and barbecue sandwiches. I cannot fathom any food tasting so good that it takes precedence over our health. Acidic foods are the demise of a healthy brain.
I have been able to persuade many of these ailing people, however, to take digestive enzymes and at the very least limit their weekly meat and dairy consumption. Some people want their youthful looks and memory back bad enough to do a liver cleanse and follow direction. The liver flush allows the enzyme bile to be more readily available for breaking down fleshy protein before it lodges in the gut and accumulates bacteria. The correct enzymes will break down bacteria before it can spread through our lymphatic system harming dendrites sending electrical signals through neurons in the brain.
When I first watched “Still Alice,” I was sad. In case you haven’t seen it, this movie is about a brilliant professor played by the actress Julianne Moore who develops familia Alzheimer’s, a rare and fast growing disease. The disease is so serious that Alice has to video her life and play it back to herself every day so she can remember her past to simulate structure in her life during her final days on earth. She is eventually overcome by the disease and turned into a stuttering helpless shadow of the intellectual woman she once was. At the end of the movie I quickly researched the details to see if it was a true story. I did this because in several scenes she would jog to the local ice cream parlor to order a cone with blueberry and coconut. I said to my self, “Ah Ha… no wonder she has Alzheimer’s! She eats ice cream every day and cannot digest the synthetic chemicals that are used to make this formidable delectable.” Let it be said for the record that I, believe synthetic food putrefying in the gut enhances this disease. I believe the chemicals in dairy and ice-cream along with other alluring indigestible foods (made with trans fats), are the main causes of dementia and Alzheimer’s. The movie was not a true story but it did portray the life of a successful woman who would treat herself to toxic foods after exercising for a good forty minutes. My greatest plea health advocates is to count chemicales
I believe that people can be predisposed to this unhealthy disease. Amyloids are a waxy sticky form of undigested protein that resembles fibers which are deposited in organs of the body. amyloids contribute to the development of plaque in the brain of an Alzheimer’s patient. The body’s digestive system is not able to handle the complexity of foods that have been served up to us on irresistible platters. I understand why we eat rich, starchy food:… They taste good! But what I want you to understand is that it takes energy to digest food and sometimes our food is not digested at all. We store it as fibers and plaque and sometimes it never leaves our system. It stays within our container the human body and finds a place to hide. The lack of digestion and elimination can exacerbate Alzheimer’s and dementia. A smart person should investigate their food choices and go for the blueberries without the ice cream.
The magnificent machine we have for a body will give us signs if we are not digesting food.
