The dam's been cracked… and it's all rushing through now.
A new report shows how we're about to be swimming… maybe even DROWNING… in new treatments for Alzheimer's disease.
And it's all because of a big breakthrough.
No, not a big breakthrough in treatments, mind you.
This one's a breakthrough in how to manipulate the FDA… and fast-tracking an UNPROVEN drug with UNKNOWN risks onto the market as quickly as possible.
Ask me, they don't care if the drug WORKS or not. All they care about is getting it approved – FAST.
And a new report shows how they're planning to pull it off by using the same pathway that a now-infamous Alzheimer's drug used last summer.
Y'know, the one now subject to multiple investigations AND scary reports over its risks.
It should've been a lesson in what NOT to do.
Instead, pharmacies could soon be FLOODED with even MORE of these awful and unproven treatments… aimed at the nation's most desperate patients.
It's enough to leave you scared… confused… and unsure about what to do next.
So, I've got some tips on how to protect yourself and your loved ones.
The new GOLD RUSH?
They're RACING to give quick approvals to drugs for patients with Alzheimer's…
But NOT because of evidence they SLOW or even STOP the disease.
It's because they might clear beta amyloid from the brain.
Here's how they've thought of beta amyloid…
It gets in the brain. You suffer decline. It's removed. The decline stops.
Makes sense, right? I mean, think of a thorn. It sticks in your skin. It hurts. You remove it. You feel better.
That's not what happens in most studies.
It seems the amyloid ISN'T the cause of the disease, the way that thorn is a cause of pain… and removing it WON'T stop the progression, the way plucking the thorn can end the pain.
It may be more like the ashes of a fire. You can sweep them out… but the fire already burned through.
And you can't un-burn whatever was there.
But they're standing by, ready to approve meds anyway using a notorious FDA program that lets drug companies BYPASS the usual process where they have to…y'know… actually PROVE that their medication works.
Without that CRUCIAL vetting process…
Patients and their families could end up suffering from the one-two punch to the gut of DASHED hopes… and AWFUL side effects.
Now, I CAN'T tell you I've got something that's proven to work in ALL cases. And anyone who does is LYING.
But I CAN give you some tips that HAVE worked for some people… WON'T cost an arm and a leg…
And WON'T expose you to the unknown risks of an experimental medication.
Here's what I consider my "Big 3": DIET: Cut out ALL processed foods and ALL sugars. Eliminate any sources of potential toxins via diet. No "cheat days." Cold turkey, and permanent. And while you're making changes, eat only organics and non-GMO foods.
SUPPLEMENTS: Consider natural therapies including phosphatidylserine, ginkgo biloba, huperzine A, grapeseed extract, and green tea extract as well as high-dose fish oil and a B complex.
OTHER CULPRITS: Speak to a naturopathic physician who can test you for false dementias, or conditions that can mimic dementia but are much more treatable, such as chronic Lyme.
And while you're there for #3, your doc can check to see if you're suffering from what I believe is the BIGGEST false dementia of all: drug side effects.
Working to reduce… replace… or eliminate common prescription meds can often lead to dramatic improvements.
