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. ‘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, so you can't blame grandpa…

    It’s NOT poor lifestyle choices, so you don’t have to blame yourself…

    And it’s NOT even rotten luck.

    Sure, all of those CAN be factors.

    But there’s a BIGGER one they’ll NEVER acknowledge – because that would mean admitting that you could put the blame on THEM.

    Since they WON’T talk about it, I WILL.

    And more importantly, I’ve got 3 simple, easy tips to bring this risk WAY back down.

    BANISH this HIDDEN cause of Alzheimer’s in 3 simple steps

    Alzheimer’s numbers are EXPLODING – and the mainstream has cooked up the DUMBEST explanation possible for it.

    Some people are just living longer.

    C’mon. The numbers don’t add up.

    Finland has the highest per capita Alzheimer’s rate… and ranks 31st in longevity.

    Number two is the United States… all the way down the longevity list at #43.

    Four of the top 5 countries with the HIGHEST Alzheimer’s rates aren’t in the top 10 in longevity… and 3 of the 5 aren’t even in the top 20.

    Believe me -- this ain’t simply the downside of a longer life.

    It’s TOXINS… poisons hiding in your food, water, medicine and more.

    And one of the worst of the lot is aluminum.

    Scientists have known about this link for half a century now. Back in the ’60s, they injected aluminum into the brains of rabbits, then watched as the critters became… well… “hare-brained.”

    Even more than you’d expect.

    They developed the degenerative damage that’s similar to what we see in dementia-addled human brains.

    In humans, scientists have found that aluminum doesn’t quite CAUSE the dementia damage. Instead, it makes it harder for the brain’s natural detox process to function.

    When the damage does turn up, it doesn’t get swept out as efficiently.

    The mainstream has insisted this is just an “in theory” kinda deal – that there’s not enough aluminum going into the body to do any real damage.

    But earlier this year, scientists in Germany looked at all the sources of aluminum we’re typically exposed to… and were STUNNED by what they found.

    The average person now reaches HALF the “allowable” weekly limit.

    Since it’s an average, you know what that means.

    Some people are well below it… but others are way, way above it.

    And the study finds that some reach “potentially harmful levels” through supposedly “normal” exposure.

    But I bet you didn’t hear a thing about THAT.

    OF COURSE you didn’t. Like I said, they REALLY don’t want to cop to this one – because it would be a damning indictment of all the aluminum they’ve allowed in everything.

    Here’s the reality of the situation…

    THEY’RE not going to restrict, regulate, or limit aluminum in any way, shape, or form.

    YOU’LL have to make your own restrictions.

    Here are my “Big 3” tips:

    1. AVOID processed foods, which can contain hidden aluminum (and other metals) especially in emulsifiers and coloring agents.
    2. DON’T BUY OR STORE food in aluminum. Choose stainless steel and/or glass instead of aluminum trays and foils.
    3. WATCH for aluminum in personal care products, especially deodorants. If you need something for your pits, look for one that specifically says “aluminum-free” on the label. They won’t plug you up and stop sweat as completely… but a little sweat in your pits is a small price to pay for less damage in your brain!

    It takes a little effort, but you can do it.

  2. 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 looks even remotely promising.

    Some drug companies have even thrown in the towel completely… and gotten out of the dementia game!

    But I’m going to give you what they’re all out of.

    Because today… I’ve got HOPE!

    A way to BLOCK dementia and SAVE your brain

    The two drugs that were considered the most promising yet just got tested on the best possible patients…

    People genetically PRONE to the disease… but BEFORE symptoms appeared.

    If the drug can help THESE folks, they reasoned, then they can certainly help the REST of us.

    But neither one did JACK.

    Next, they say, they may try higher doses and longer periods… potentially starting DECADES before the disease appears.

    What’s next? Drugging children?

    Drugging us for LIFE… with cradle-to-the-grave meds?

    You know they’d LOVE that – but even then, I’d bet the results would be EXACTLY the same.

    Here’s a fact the mainstream DOESN’T want to talk about…

    More than 300 clinical trials for Alzheimer’s treatments have been conducted… and more than 300 clinical trials for Alzheimer’s treatments have failed.

    Now, I’m not here to dance on failure.

    I absolutely WANT to see them succeed and beat this thing.

    But nearly ALL of the failed drugs target the same approach -- hitting the beta-amyloid plaques that clog the brain.

    There’s no doubt beta-amyloid plays a big role in this disease.

    But after 300 failures… it seems like they’re focusing on the smoke instead of the fire.

    Friend, I hope you NEVER have to live with the news that you or a loved one have Alzheimer’s.

    And if you do ever develop it… I hope they have a way to CURE it by then.

    But since that hasn’t happened yet, let me tell you exactly what I’d do if I had… or were at risk for… this disease.

    1. Uncover the MIMICS -- the conditions that look so much like dementia doctors often mistake it for the real deal. That includes hidden infections – especially yeast infections – as well as chronic Lyme.
    2. Look at your MEDS -- because in many cases, dementia isn’t dementia at all. It’s a side effect, either of one drug (anything recently added is an automatic suspect) or the combined effect of multiple drugs, hammering away at the brain. Work with a doc who can get you off these suspects… ALL of them, if possible.
    3. Get rid of the TOXINS -- because I’m sure that’s what’s playing a major role in this disease, including toxins from food and water. Eliminate new exposure by cutting out processed foods and switching to an all-organic, non-GMO, gluten-free diet.
    4. Power up your BRAIN -- starting with ginkgo biloba, phosphatidyl serine, high-dose intravenous vitamin C, NAC, ALA, etc.

    A naturopathic doc can also help come up with some specifics custom-tailored to your risks and needs.

  3. 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...
  4. ‘Brain drain’ drug risk is REAL… but they’re BRAINWASHING you to ignore it!

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...
  5. ‘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...

Nope. They’re going after your vitamins! They’re attacking the supplements...

  13. 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 →
  16. 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.

  18. 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 →
  19. Two low-tech tests could predict dementia up to 12-years earlier

    Dodge dementia with two low-tech tests  Taking a stroll, and answering a few simple questions, could turn out to be the key to predicting dementia years before it strikes, according to an exciting new study published online in the journal Neurology. In the huge study of 27,000 older adults on five continents, close to 1 in 10 volunteers tested positive for pre-dementia based on a test that measures how quickly they walk (gait speed), and a second one that asks a few questions about their cognitive abilities.

  20. Sugar can cause memory loss

    Eating sweets can rot your brain Sugar rots teeth. But it also rots something far more important: your brain cells. Diabetics have a higher risk of dementia because of their sky-high blood sugar levels -- but you don't have to be a diabetic yourself to suffer from the brain-rotting damage of sugar. Even slight elevations in blood sugar can cause memory problems. Continue reading →
