Early Memory Loss Really CAN be Stopped!
Many people suffer from memory loss, but that doesn’t mean that you have Dementia or even Alzheimer’s. Some memory lapses due to stress or lack of sleep happen to everyone.
But if the brain chemistry gets seriously disturbed, and Amyloid plaques (abnormal protein clumps) poison the nerve cells, the tau proteins ( holding normally healthy cells together) malfunction and accumulate, so nerve cells get clogged with “neurofibrillary tangles”, more and more nerve cells die and do not function anymore. The result is dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and eventually severe disability and death.
Formerly the medical world thought that dementia and Alzheimer’s disease are irreversible, progress slowly and nothing could be done to stop it.
Now we know that this is not the case.
Drastic changes in diet (e.g. a ketogenic diet) can stop and even reverse memory loss, but it is sometimes hard to follow.
Two factors have been discovered that protect against structural changes observed in the elderly. These new neuro-protectors are microdose lithium and a colostrum-derivec proline-rich polypeptide (special protein), even when the diet is not very good.
Why? Low-dose lithium inhibits a damaging enzyme called GSK-3 (glycogen synthase kinase – 3). It is involved in the glucose metabolism and damages our delicate cellular structures, especially when we eat a high-sugar diet.
The special protein mentioned above prevents the formation of beta amyloid and tau protein damage that contribute to brain cell destruction.
Evidence suggests that impaired glucose/insulin action increases accumulation of beta amyloid and damages tau proteins. These observations have led to the term “Type III diabetes” for Alzheimer’s disease.
Don’t give up hope! There are many things that can be done to prevent or stop memory loss!
