Memory & Brain Support

Keeping our brains healthy and sharp is just as important as physical fitness. The NorthStar blog on memory and brain support gives you breaking news on memory, cognitive health, and how to keep your brain sharp as a tack.

  1. [BUSTED!] Shadowy conspiracy BLOCKING Alzheimer's breakthroughs?

    Alzheimer's is one of the most HOPELESS conditions out there.

    People BEAT cancer. They SURVIVE a stroke.

    Some even BOUNCE BACK after a heart attack… and in better shape than ever!

    But not dementia.

    For most, it's like being sucked slowly into a black hole – one you'll never come back out of, as your family and loved ones watch in horror.

    Now, a new report exposes WHY so many efforts are FUTILE in improving Alzheimer's patients' conditions

    Despite DECADES of research!

    This report SUPPOSEDLY comes as a big shock to longtime medical insiders and observers.

    Yeah, right.

    But this is SO WILD… many people will find it hard to believe.

    And now it's time for you to decide for yourself.

     The REAL reason there's NO CURE for Alzheimer's

    There's a group of insiders in the medical industry that's CONTROLLING the "Alzheimer's agenda."

    These folks are actively working to SHUT DOWN some of the most promising efforts to treat, beat, slow, reverse or cure Alzheimer's disease!

    Think I'm being paranoid?

    According to STAT -- a very mainstream website dedicated to news on medical research -- several scientists described those who are pulling the string as "a cabal."

    This cabal decides what gets funded… and what DOESN'T.

    STAT reports that this cabal is ACTIVELY BLOCKING research into anything that doesn't fit their dogma.

    They even control WHO GETS TO SPEAK at scientific events!

    And that's the reason there's NO TREATMENT that can slow, stop or even prevent this disease.

    Apparently, some scientists are quietly rebelling against this "stifling" atmosphere – off the record, of course.

    The cabal backs one theory and one theory only…

    That the beta-amyloid plaques that appear in the brains of Alzheimer's patients hold the key to REVERSING the disease.

    But that's increasingly looking like a MISTAKE… or at the very least only PART of the picture.

    Because while the industry has since developed drugs that target those plaques… NOT ONE OF THEM has improved the disease!

    And in the meantime, researchers haven't been able to focus on some of the OTHER potential causes!

    Take the viral theory, for starters.

    Scientists have found that certain infections… especially chronic ones… can lead to dementia at least some of the time.

    All the way back in 1991, scientists found the herpes simplex 1 virus – the cold sores one – in the brains of people with Alzheimer's.

    Last year, researchers discovered that people with a history of the infection had 2.6X the risk of Alzheimer's… but that treating it with antivirals brought the odds right back down.

    Then there's the bacterial theory.

    Several of the germs in the mouth… especially the ones behind tooth decay and gum disease… can get inside the body via bleeding gums and raise all kinds of havoc including heart attack, stroke, cancer, and dementia.

    In one study, an enzyme made by theP. gingivalis bacteria behind gum disease was found in 99% of the brains of people who died of Alzheimer's.

    Those "bad bugs" are ON TOP OF poisons in food, air, and water that can accumulate in the brain…

    And cause severe memory loss and all the symptoms we call "dementia."

    We know from animal studies and anecdotal human evidence that certain detoxifying treatments like chelation can make a HUGE difference.

    But guess what they're not studying?

    That's right.

    Thank your local cabal for that.

    Everything from inflammation to immune function could also play a role in Alzheimer's, according to "forbidden" research.

    My guess is when this all shakes out… they'll discover that Alzheimer's isn't one disease any more than cancer is one disease.

    It's MANY diseases… with MANY potential forms and causes

    And the longer it takes to accept that… the longer it'll be before American seniors get the TRUE help they deserve.

    But that doesn't mean you have to be a victim of this ugly form of industry politics.

    There's no surefire treatment that works in ALL cases… but I think there's evidence for some excellent places to start…

    • DIAL DOWN as many meds as possible
    • ELIMINATE all sources of toxins in diet (meaning ZERO processed foods)
    • RESTRICT carbohydrates, and
    • SUPPORT brain health with supplements of ginkgo biloba, phosphatidylserine, high-dose intravenous vitamin C, NAC, ALA, etc.

    Work closely with a naturopathic physician who can also help discover underlying causes…

    Including "false" dementias such as chronic Lyme…

    And can customize a personalized approach that's best for you.

  2. Loved one with dementia? Watch for this DRUG NIGHTMARE!

    You think it’s the disease – and there’s NOTHING you can do as you watch a loved one with dementia suddenly and rapidly decline.

    Sometimes, it happens before your eyes in a matter of weeks… or even days.

    But new research reveals the TRUE CULPRIT in many cases -- and it’s NOT always the disease.

    It’s the TREATMENT!  

    The problem, in this case, isn’t a single med. That would be easy enough to watch out for.

    It’s a MIX of meds – certain combinations that can get inside the already-struggling brain, and scramble it like an egg.

    So, if you have a loved one with dementia, it’s time for a medicine check – because I’ve got the inside word on the drug combinations that people with this disease should NEVER take.

    The most dangerous combinations for dementia

    Here’s what I like to call the SPREEN RULE for anyone with newly diagnosed cognitive declinedementia… or suspected dementia

    Eliminate as many meds as you can.

    ALL of them, if possible -- even if you can only get away with it for a short period of time.

    ANY drug on its own could turn your brain into squash.

    But when they’re COMBINED? They can leave you loopier than a lush at closing time.

    Cutting the meds doesn’t ALWAYS make a difference…

    But you’d probably be STUNNED at how many people improve SIGNIFICANTLY… or even recover COMPLETELY… with that single step.

    But most docs don’t follow the SPREEN RULE. Instead of eliminating meds… they often ADD some.

    The new study shows how 1 in 7 dementia patients still living at home – some 166,000 older folks – are taking 3 or more brain-scrambling meds.

    Specifically, they’re on drugs that act on the central nervous system

    And include everything from painkillers such as opioids and gabapentin… to antidepressantssleeping pillsantipsychoticsbenzodiazepineshypnoticsanti-epileptics… and more.

    In combination, they can lead to:

    • falls and/or injuries
    • respiratory struggles
    • fatigue
    • delirium, and
    • death.

    I’ve saved the WORST for last.

    They can WORSEN cognitive problems… leading to a FASTER decline into dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

    The researchers say they expected to see this kind of drug overuse in nursing homes… but were STUNNED to find it’s happening OUTSIDE of them, too.

    There’s NO escaping it!

    If you have a loved one with dementia, it’s time to insist on the SPREEN RULE.

    Make an appointment to go over ALL of the meds… seeing what can be ELIMINATED or at least PAUSED safely.

    If you’re not getting anywhere with a conventional doc… arrange to see a naturopathic physician.

    He’ll not only help eliminate unneeded drugs… but he’ll also work to find safer natural options that can take the place of common meds.

    And don’t stop there…

    Continue the detox by SWITCHING to an all-natural diet with ZERO processed foods and ZERO “franken-food” GMOs.

    Finally, look into natural therapies that can RESTORE power to the brain -- including ginkgo biloba, phosphatidylserine, PQQ, and glutathione.

    In Your Corner,

    Dr. Allan Spreen

  3. ‘Everywhere’ toxin can WORSEN dementia damage

    No one will TALK about it. They won’t even ACKNOWLEDGE it. And if you bring it up, they treat ya like a kook in a tinfoil hat. But there’s a hush-hush reason for the SURGE of Alzheimer’s disease… One that has NOTHING to do with ANY of the suspects the mainstream will usually try to blame. It’s NOT bad genes...
  4. Dementia drugs FAIL new study – but there’s HOPE for you!

    They called it the last hope against Alzheimer’s disease. Not just ONE promising drug… But TWO separate medications… in development at the same time… each one set to attack the disease that 5.6 million older Americans are now living with. And now, we have the results. Both of them FLOPPED! Now, the mainstream says, there’s NOTHING in the works that...
  5. WIPE OUT Alzheimer’s with the brain’s ‘master antioxidant’

    It’s like a confession… and a desperate cry for help… all at once. We’re STUCK… and we’ve got NOTHING! The medical mainstream is finally admitting that NONE of their drugs do JACK for Alzheimer’s disease. OK, so that’s mostly stating the obvious. After all, they’ve FLUSHED billions down the drain in the name of dementia research… and still have ZIP...
  6. ‘Brain drain’ drug risk is REAL… but they’re BRAINWASHING you to ignore it!

    Me? In a CULT?!?!? Never woulda pegged myself as a cultist… But that’s what the mainstream is calling me -- just for opposing statins, because they can cause memory problems and muscle pain. Agree with me? Welcome to the cult! A new report on the MedPage Today website for medical professionals claims we’re engaged in “fear-mongering.” Now, WHERE could we...
  7. ‘Failed’ Alzheimer’s med RESURRECTED… and could get approved anyway

    A new beta-amyloid-busting drug for Alzheimer’s? That’s what the media says… that’s what the drug industry claims… and that’s what the FDA seems hellbent on approving in a hurry. But don’t get your hopes up! This drug that’s being hailed as a breakthrough… is already BROKEN! I’ll put the pieces back together in a moment and give you the inside...

    The New York Times is out with a big exposé… and who do you think they’re going up against? They’re not going after crooked politicians… They’re not taking down corrupt business for stealing your hard-earned dough… And they’re not attacking Big Pharma for selling poison pills to desperate American patients. Nope. They’re going after your vitamins! They’re attacking the supplements...
  10. Breakthrough CRACKS the ‘Alzheimer’s code’… and helps SAVE your brain from these ‘killers’

  15. The Alzheimer’s Diet: Can You Prevent Alzheimer’s Disease With Food?

    Diet for Alzheimer’s You may have heard about the so-called Alzheimer’s Diet – a new diet that claims it helps prevent Alzheimer’s disease. But before you get excited, you want the facts. After all, the Alzheimer’s Association itself called the disease “…the only cause of death in the top 10 in America that cannot be prevented, cured, or slowed.” Add to that the fact that approximately 5.3 million Americans have Alzheimer’s, and it becomes a scary disease. If there really is such a thing as an Alzheimer’s diet, you want to know about it. But how reliable are the reports of an Alzheimer’s diet? And if it exists, how complicated or hard to follow is it? You’ve got questions – but I’ve got answers. This article takes a closer look at the Alzheimer’s diet and how, yes, you may be able to prevent Alzheimer’s with food. Continue reading →

    Memory Loss with AgeMedications that Cause Memory Loss Memory loss is a common part of aging. We’ve all heard of “senior moments” – and many of us have started having them. The occasional slip is easy to shrug off. Sometimes they’re even amusing, just as long as they stay occasional. But when those “senior moments” start becoming a regular way of life, that’s another story. Suddenly memory loss with age is no longer easy to shrug off, and it’s certainly not amusing. If you are experiencing other signs of dementia along with your current memory loss, that’s when things could become a bit concerning. Continue reading →
  18. Stages of Dementia: What Are They? And Should I Be Worried?

    Dementia StagesWhenever someone talks about dementia, you get a little scared. For most people, what’s scary about anything is the unknown. The unknown causes us to question everything… What’s going to happen to my loved one? Am I going to be okay? Can I take care of them? What happens next? Or worse. What if it happens to you? Am I destined to get it? What are the signs of dementia? Is there a way to protect against it? But for every question, there is an answer. And once you have an answer, things tend to get a little less scary. So we wanted to look at the stages of dementia, help you understand it a little better, and answer some of those questions.

  20. Common chemical threatens thyroid function and IQ level?

    Common chemical threatens thyroids and IQ’s It’s everywhere. And I really do mean EVERYWHERE. It’s in you, it’s in me, and it’s in everyone you know, or have ever known, for that matter. It affects the thyroid, a gland that helps regulate our hormones, those compounds that are responsible for controlling and regulating just about every single cell and organ in our bodies. And yet very few of us have ever even heard of this creepy, pervasive chemical. Perchlorate is nothing new. It’s a naturally occurring chemical. Or I should say it was naturally occurring until someone had the bright idea that we should start manufacturing massive quantities of it ourselves. And that decision could have dire long-term health consequences for all of us. Continue reading →
