Biomed Approach to Alzheimer’s Disease?

psychedelic

Alzheimer’s is one of those ‘mysteries’ like autism- but we now know that many kids can recover from autism with what is called a biomedical or ‘biomed’ approach that addresses underlying biological dysfuntions that result in physical or behavioral symptoms. Could adults also recover from Alzheimer’s, or at least halt its progression, with a biomed approach? Some of you may be familiar with NAC (N-acetyl cysteine) and its use in ASD- but look at these results on Alzheimer’s mice!
” The results showed that the mice pretreated with NAC had significantly greater retention in the step through test and shorter latencies in the water maze performance.”
Biochemical markers were also reversed or reduced with NAC pre-treatment.

There was another study that looked at a combo of NAC and acetyl-L-carnitine and S-adenosyl methionine on AD mice, too, with good results.
Behavioral abnormalities correlated with a decline in acetylcholine, which was also prevented by this nutriceutical combination, suggesting that neurotransmitter imbalance may contribute to their manifestation.

What brought me down this trail was looking at factors in RLS (which I have) and often it has to do with low iron or low oxygen transport and this is why iron supplements often help. Didn’t help for me, and neither did any of the other usual things like B vitamins, calcium, magnesium, etc. Usually, smoking makes RLS worse but in some cases, it oddly helps (including for me), and it turns out this is true for a subset of RLS patients and also Parkinsons’ patients, and the connection has to do with acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter.

On a side note, PD drugs like Requip are also used for RLS. These drugs are not that much more effective than placebos and carry the risk of serious side-effects, but perhaps they do work for a subset of RLS patients whose symptoms have to do with an underlying mechanism of action involving the same neurotransmitters that are involved in Parkinson’s Disease. They target dopamine receptors, which are also known to be defective in some patients with Alzheimer’s Disease, who have PD-type symptoms along with their AD.

RLS itself is also sometimes an early warning sign of AD (hope to God that’s not my situation). So there is this connection with both Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s and RLS, and a connection with improvement in PD and RLS symptoms with nicotine.There has also been some research showing that nicotine patches slightly improve memory in pre-demetia patients.

So we have scientific evidence that nicotine helps alleviate symptoms in some sufferers of AD, PD, and RLS. We also have evidence that these symptoms are related to acetylcholine levels, and that NAC normalizes acetylcholine levels in AD mice. What is the connection with nicotine and acetylcholine?
Nicotine imitates the action of a natural neurotransmitter called acetylcholine and binds to a particular type of acetylcholine receptor, known as the nicotinic receptor.

I’m not recommending that anyone with RLS, PD, or AD take up smoking. In fact, I’m not recommending anything. But as you see, there is this connection with acetylcholine, RLS, AD and PD. So can it be prevented or reversed? You may have heard of coconut oil for AD but that is another story. Here are the mouse studies on NAC and other natural substances that raise glutathione and affect neurotransmitters and the doses are high but the results look promising and so do studies on NAC for AD in humans. Maybe one day, Alzheimer’s treatment will be focused on using neutraceuticals like NAC. Or maybe not, since there is no big money to be made in that.

For now, preliminary research in mice looks good and I hope we see more human studies on this soon!

Medicine Without Medicine

How can you cure illness without any drugs, herbs or other medicine whatsoever? By our understanding, this shouldn’t be possible, and yet it apparently is.
See the video below where Gregg Braden talks about using metaphysics to eliminate health problems and how this is even being done at a hospital in Japan, with success at removing even cancerous tumors.

Please also see this interesting account of a woman, Anita Moorjani, who was completely healed of end-stage lymphoma after having a near-death experience.

One author who is known for her work on metaphysical cause of disease is Louise Hay and you can see her website at louisehay.com

Many websites address the topic of how your mind/soul manifests illness in your body as a result of issues that are not actually physical in nature. Here is an example of a list of connections made between illnesses and metaphysical/emotional causes.
http://www.paganspath.com/healing/ailments.htm

I realize that to anyone who considers themselves a Christian, the mere mention of the word ‘pagan’ might be a turn off but I remember that the renowned pastor Cindy Jacobs stated in her book ‘Women of Destiny’ that she was healed of an ovarian or uterine growth by faith, at the altar, and that as she was healed she realized that this tumor was a manifestation of negative emotions she held on to that were associated with her relationship with her father. Christians are metaphysical beings just as anyone else, and we manifest disease in the same way as everyone else.

I don’t know whether any such list as the one above is particularly accurate. It seems to me that the best way to know what is causing your illness would be to examine yourself and your life and to consider and pray about what is making you sick and ask God to remove that from you. For example, if worry has caused you to become susceptible to colds, you could turn your worry over to God, affirming that you trust in Him and in the path He is leading you on, and that you renounce your negative thoughts and emotions that are holding you back and causing disease in your body. Let go of all negative emotions such as anger, resentments, fear, and worry. They are worse for you than GMOs and vaccines. Receive everything in your life as a gift.

LeRoy, NY Neurological Disease Outbreak Could be Linked to Toxic Spill

Over a dozen teens in LeRoy, NY, have been afflicted with tics and other neurological symptoms. When the news of this first broke, many people right away wondered whether Gardasil could be the culprit. Although authorities had said they had ruled out vaccinations as a cause, I did not trust them on this and also suspected the HPV shot. My suspicions were strengthened when I found a forum post confirming that one of the girls had fallen ill after her third Gardasil shot. However, a boy has recently been numbered among the victims, and a youtube user from LeRoy told me that he knows from credible sources that at least three of the 15 kids did not have Gardasil. While there is ample evidence that Gardasil has caused death and illness in many recipients, it does no-one any good to insist on fingering the wrong culprit.

As my viewer pointed out to me, it is now being suspected that the cause of the outbreak may be a chemical spill from a train derailment 40 years ago that dumped cyanide and trichloroethylene into the ground about 4 miles from the school. There was also a local factory that dumped chemicals into a creek next to 2 area schools. The train derailment was never properly cleaned up and it is possible that natural gas wells in the school may be pulling the underground pollution towards the school. There are also rumors that they used fill from the area of the spill to fill in the swamp they built the high school on, and a local company also used to dump chemicals into that swamp.

The official diagnosis has been ‘conversion disorder’ aka ‘mass psychogenic illness’, meaning that it is a psychiatric disorder with no physical cause, but the girls and their parents are not satisfied with this explanation.
www.wivb.com/dpp/news/genesee/girls-developing-tics-frightens-parents

In a recent interview on ABC, two victims and their mothers stated that although authorities say they have ruled out environmental causes, they have to date not shown any data from any testing actually proving this.

Now, well-known activist Erin Brokovich, who helped expose chemical dumping in California, has stepped in to help investigate after being approached by some of the parents.
theblaze.com/stories/mystery-illness-affecting-ny-students-could-be-from-1970-train-crash-says-erin-brockovich/

The official explanation that the girls’ symptoms are the result of a psychiatric disorder are totally unacceptable and are only adding insult to injury. Given that the US government has a long history of placing the interests of corporations above those of people, their actions and explanations in this case reek of another coverup. Whether the girls’ symptoms are indeed from exposure to chemicals or from something else, the cause needs to be uncovered and dealt with properly. Delaying this is only placing more children at risk and those who do so intentionally to protect corporations should themselves be held accountable for contributing to this harm.

Morgellons, Chemtrails and the Zapper

Today on The Truther Girls, I will be talking to Don Croft from worldwithoutparasites about chemtrails, Morgellons disease, and the zapper.
While nobody knows exactly what Morgellons, some possibilities include parasitic disease, chronic Lyme disease, or a nanotechnology infestation. While this last option may sound far-fetched, it could be a possibility, given that lab analyses of fibers from Morgellons patients ruled out that they were hair, textiles, or any other known fiber. These fibers have also been shown to glow under UV light.
If it is a nanotech infection, where is it coming from? Possibilities may include chemtrails and GMO foods. Please see the following article on the IntelHub on chemtrails and Morgellons.
Also check out this article on the chemtrail-morgellons connect on rense.com, which shows that, under the microscope, there is a strong similarity between Morgellons fibers and those found in chemtrails.

Morgellons is known as an incurable disease, but I personally know someone who claims to have been rid of this affliction as the result of 3 months of continuous use of the zapper.

Don croft will be on with me today from 3:00-4:00pm EST. During the first hour, I will be joined by Rupert from ‘Hi, It’s Rupert!’ for news and commentary.

The Dreaded, Deadly Measles

Measles deaths in the UK, 1940-2008. I dug this up looking into measles deaths after I heard a claim that Wakefield’s study had led to such a drop in MMR uptake that this had resulted in 500 deaths. Where were these deaths? Not in the UK, obviously, because there were only 14 deaths from measles from 1998-2008 and as the source explains, all but two were caused by late complications of measles acquired earlier in life, not acute measles.

Deaths from measles fell 60% worldwide from 1999 to 2005. In 2005, there were 12 deaths from measles in Europe: 11 in Romania and 1 in Germany. Shall we blame Wakefield and the vaccine resisters in the UK for this? The vast majority of deaths occur in developing nations. Do you think this may have something to do with poverty, poor sanitation and nutrition? I guess it is more profitable to send them vaccines than to work on the underlying problems that make children in these countries susceptible to disease.

The TImes of India attributes the resurgence in measles since 2007 (mostly in Africa) to lack of political support for MMR campaigns, not vaccine resisters in Europe.

“In 2006 there was one measles death in a 13 years old male who had an underlying lung condition and was taking immunosuppressive drugs. Another death in 2008 was also due to acute measles in unvaccinated child with congenital immunodeficiency whose condition did not require treatment with immunoglobulin. Prior to 2006, the last death from acute measles was in 1992.

All other measles deaths, since 1992, shown above are in older individuals and were caused by the late effects of measles. These infections were acquired during the 1980s or earlier, when epidemics of measles occurred.

Re-Thinking HIV/AIDS

Russia Today:

“Thousands of experts, scientists and politicians from around the globe have gathered in Vienna to discuss HIV/AIDS prevention. But the convention has also attracted sceptics who oppose mainstream beliefs surrounding the deadly virus. To discuss the alternative HIV/AIDS conference RT talks to Joan Shenton, founder of the Immunity Resource Foundation.”
