Alzheimer's Detected Decades Before Symptoms

A study published in Lancet Neurology found key clues in ways to detect Alzheimer’s Disease years before symptoms actually appear. The study showed that a genetic mutation could predestine you to the dreaded brain disease, according to BBC.

While the research is ongoing, other studies are now showing that Alzheimer’s may also be triggered by infections the brain tries to fight. These studies show that beta-amyloid traps infectious agents in your brain and imprisons them in a beta-amyloid “cage,” where they ultimately die. These cages then form the plaque buildup seen in Alzheimer’s. What’s more, brain infections that cause no symptoms could potentially lead to the buildup of these plaques.

For now, however, the underlying causes and cures for Alzheimer's are unknown, so it’s up to us to protect our own brain health in the best way possible.

You can do this by replacing processed foods with real foods, avoiding sugar and refined fructose (Alzheimer's appears to be intricately linked to insulin resistance), optimizing the healthy fats your brain needs for optimal function with organically raised grass-fed meats, coconut oil, olives and olive oil, avocado, nuts, organic pastured egg yolks, and butter made from raw grass-fed milk, and adding an exercise program to your daily routine.

Improving your magnesium levels is also important: Preliminary research strongly suggests a decrease in Alzheimer’s symptoms with increased levels of magnesium in the brain. Unfortunately, most magnesium supplements do not pass the blood-brain barrier. Magnesium threonate appears to, however, and holds some promise for the future for treating this condition.
