Alzheimer’s Disease

Compiled by Kris Zurek; final version posted: 31/05/2013



I intended to write a page about Alzheimer’s for last year, but now as I sit at my desk to proceed, I  realize that I have forgotten how I wanted to start this article.

It is no doubt, one of the saddest and most debilitating diseases of all. Currently some 4 million Americans have this degenerative disease of the brain while 19 million Americans have family members with Alzheimer’s or dementia. (1)Being facetious of course …but that’s exactly what Alzheimer’s disease does to a person’s memory …you just can’t remember.

Alzheimer’s very slowly creeps up on mostly older people, robbing them of their memories, their ability to function day to day, and eventually their lives.


Alzheimer’s Disease (Understanding Disease: Neurology) brief explanation of the changes in the brain

By the age of 65, 1 in 10 people have Alzheimer’s, and by age 85, nearly half of all people do. (1)

It’s a debilitating and terrible disease …that steals our brain and steals our dignity and our life. Many people are still puzzled, trying to figure out what causes it and how to prevent it.

You may be surprised to learn that science have made already great discoveries regarding causative factors of Alzheimer’s. Despite the fact that final verdict is not yet announced through media channels, at least six strong links have been identified and secondary four.

  • Chronic inflammation of the brain (more on the subject here), due to our unnatural and faulty lifestyle, diet, overacidity, toxic chemicals and bacterial overload.
  • Mercury, heavy metal toxic overload is very dangerous. Brain, Central Nervous System (CNS) and Kidneys are the most affected by Mercury. Many people are in fact damaged by it and show symptoms of slow release Mercury poisoning, without even realizing it. This is because many medical practitioners have little knowledge concerning this issue and do not know the most accurate testing protocols . There is plenty of proof that Mercury destroys brain nerve cells, it literally dissolves them(more on the subject here)
  • Aluminum, an environmental neuro-toxin (more on the subject here) is somehow involved too. Autopsies performed on Alzheimer’s patients reveal that their brain nerves that transmit their memory signals, are in a tangled mess and surrounded with aluminium. They simply short out and no message gets through. So the patient ‘loses’ their memory. The memory maybe still stored in the brain, but the nerves that deliver it are disrupted. So when the patient tries to recall a memory, it just does not happen
  • Beta Amyloid Plaque 

Secondary factors:

  • Antioxidant deficiencies (lower protection against Free Radical Attack)
  • Statins (cholesterol lowering drugs) may contribute to memory loss and Alzheimer’s-like symptoms
  • Obesity doubles the risk for Alzheimer’s
  • Predominantly simple Carbohydrate Diet (devoid of healthy types of fats) increases risk of Alzheimer’s by five times


Holistic Natural Approach and Preventive Solutions for Alzheimer’s:

  • Use big doses of antioxidants e.g. Flavanoids, Gluthatione, to protect against Free Radical Damage
  • Use natural anti-inflammatory enzyme Serrapeptase (Alzheimer’s patients have high levels of inflammation in the brain)
  • Use special Helmet (based on photon therapy) and LLLT – call us for details
  • Vibroacoustic Therapy (using sound vibrations applied to the whole body) helps to enliven the brain (sound vibrations, music, melody, beat is vital for improving brain functions)
  • Avoid Statin drugs (prolonged use can ‘dissolve’ parts of the brain) – on the lower part of the following page you will find video clips about Statins
  • Include coconut oil in your diet (they contain 60% of Medium Chain Triglycerides, which are very beneficial for rebuilding the brain) and incorporate Ketonic Diet

Role of Probiotics: If you want to know how to improve memory and cognition and how to prevent Alzheimer’s, it might surprise you to know that a healthy brain begins in your stomach. (please read more here)

Therapeutic Effects of Coherent Light on Memory & Prevention of Alzheimer’s

Low-level light therapy (LLLT) with red to near-infrared light-emitting diodes (LEDs) enhances cortical oxygenation and metabolic capacity and memory retention, scientists observed in a series of animal experiments.

Because cerebral hypometabolism characterizes mild cognitive impairment, they say transcranially applied LLLT could have memory-enhancing effects in humans.

The ability of LLLT to increase mitochondrial energy metabolism could be used to recover brain processes affected by regional brain hypometabolism associated with Alzheimer’s disease (AD), Francisco Gonzalez-Lima, PhD, University of Austin, Texas, and colleagues suggest.

“Furthermore, LLLT could be used as a preventive intervention in people who present risk factors for AD, such as those with chronic cerebrovascular hypoperfusion, mild cognitive impairment, or a history of head trauma. In such patients, LLLT could be combined with cognitive intervention approaches,” they say.

Flavonoids Inhibit Heparin-Induced Aggregation of the Third Repeat (R3) of Microtubule-Binding Domain of Alzheimer’s Tau Protein

“Consumption of plants and plant products that are rich in flavonoids, such as cocoa, wine, tea, and berries, has been related with protective effects against cardiovascular disease and certain forms of cancer.8 They have been found to act as free-radical scavengers and have been widely studied for their antioxidant activity in vitro.9,10 Several authors have observed that antioxidants exhibit protective effect in a family of neurodegenerative diseases featuring memory loss, inability to calculate, visual-spatial disturbances, confusion and disorientation, such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.11,12
