When it comes to dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, the mainstream now admits they’ve got a huge blind spot.
They’re still struggling with the basics:
- Who’s at risk
- What causes it
- Where it strikes
- When it starts
- Why some suffer – and some don’t
And if you don’t know the who, what, where, when, and why then you CERTAINLY can’t be trusted to help with the…
- How to stop it
In other words, taking conventional medicine’s advice on preventing dementia at face value is what my grandmother would have called a fool’s errand.
New dementia guidelines wildly miss the mark
But knowing next to nothing has never stopped them before. So it was no surprise when the medical mainstream recently released yet another “new” set of dementia guidelines.
The only trouble is instead of providing people with REAL hope they’ve recycled the same old advice…
Eat right. Get some exercise. Don’t smoke.
Yada, yada, yada. Frankly, it’s enough to make your mind go numb.
I won’t say those things are bad. They aren’t.
It’s just that they’re OBVIOUS.
And on their own, they’re really not enough to beat dementia, especially if you’re at high risk of developing it or are already in the earliest stages.
You can spend hours working out, eat a ton of veggies, and even adopt the healthiest habits. But those aren’t a guarantee.
You could STILL just end up with the buffest body in the dementia ward.
Protect your thinker in 2 steps
But don’t rely on the medical mainstream advice to help if you do.
Because despite a seemingly endless parade of new Alzheimer’s drugs hitting the market, a TRULY effective medication to treat dementia in ANY stage hasn’t been developed.
Alzheimer’s clinical trials are a miserable failure a shocking 99.6 percent of the time. And most folks can’t expect more than some mild symptom relief.
So why stop there? Take my two-step approach instead.
Step 1: Rule everything ELSE out.
Many dementias are false dementias, caused by drug side effects (including from BP meds and statins). Low levels of certain nutrients can be to blame too, especially vitamin B12.
Work with a doc to see if your meds are at fault, and ask about a B12 supplement.
Step 2: Juice up your brain.
High-dose fish oil and B vitamins can help slow the loss of brain volume and protect you from decline and dementia. Then, work with a naturopathic doc on specific therapies tailored to YOUR needs.
