  1. New Alzheimer’s ‘test’ raises hopes… but WON’T improve outcomes

    If the FDA were to debut a new slogan, it should be “much too little, way too late.”

    And if you think that’s an exaggeration… just take a look at their latest approval for Alzheimer’s disease.

    It’s not a CURE. It’s not even a TREATMENT…

    It’s a TEST that’s supposed to help figure out who’s at the highest risk…

    But here’s the kicker…

    It’s only been shown to work when you’re LITERALLY on death’s door!

    Don’t get me wrong here -- it would be an absolute game-changer if something could spot the FIRST warning signs of the disease in its EARLIEST stages, when you still have a shot at stopping this thing.

    But that’s NOT what the feds just OK’ed.

    So, today I’m going to share with you a DIFFERENT kind of test – one that really can spot the risk early on.

    More importantly, I’ve also got the steps you can take to put a STOP to this thing before it gets outta control.

    The very BEST judge of Alzheimer’s risk is…

    The feds just approved an Alzheimer’s diagnostic tool called Tauvid.

    It’s injected into your body before running a scan -- supposedly, to help docs spot the tau deposits in the brain linked to dementia.

    But there are a few HUGE problems with this…

    First, there’s still NO certainty that tau alone is good at predicting the disease.

    Second, even if it were… this stuff is RADIOACTIVE.

    And third, most of the testing to date has been done on people with SEVERE dementia… often just MONTHS from death.

    Now, that was by design – so researchers could pop their brains open and checked them against the scans during the autopsy.

    But… C’MON!

    We don’t NEED help spotting people with dementia that’s progressed THAT far. By that point, it’s pretty OBVIOUS.

    We need to spot the damage MUCH earlier -- sometime during the window when careful treatment can STOP the disease from turning into the severe and terminal dementia “detected” by this test.

    And even the FDA admits… there’s no indication this test can do that.

    So, here’s the deal…

    A new study shows what the BEST judge of early-stage dementia is. And it’s not a doc… a scan… a radioactive injection… or any of that.

    It’s YOU.

    Seniors who are worried enough about cognitive decline to talk to a doctor and seek testing are more likely to be in the early phases of dementia.

    In fact, it might be SO early that they can still PASS mainstream cognitive tests!

    Now, this DOESN’T mean every little concern over memory is a sign of dementia.

    But it DOES mean that if you consistently know something’s up… so much so that you’re willing to speak to a doctor about it… there’s a good chance you have a reason to be concerned.

    That’s not, however, a reason to PANIC.

    Because this is also your chance to take EARLY ACTION!

    There’s no single cure for Alzheimer’s -- because there’s no single cause.

    But there are some common culprits behind cognitive struggles in seniors.

    If you’re worried you’re losing the speed off your mental fastball, look at your meds

    And work with a naturopathic physician to see which drugs you can ELIMINATE… and what you can REPLACE with safer options.

    If you’re STILL not quite right, take these 2 actions:

    1. ELIMINATE toxins, starting with diet. Ditch ALL processed foods and anything refined… and eat only natural organics.
    2. BOOST your nutrition with the essentials for brain health, including supplements. Ginkgo biloba, phosphatidylserine, high-dose intravenous vitamin C, NAC, ALA omega-3, and B vitamins are all great places to start.

    And for the best results of all, work with a doc experienced in this stuff – one who can help custom-create a plan best for your health and needs.

  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. ‘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...
  5. Breakthrough CRACKS the ‘Alzheimer’s code’… and helps SAVE your brain from these ‘killers’

    If you feel your memory getting worse… or find you’re more easily confused than you used to be…  The mainstream has ALREADY failed you.   Most docs are getting it all wrong (even if they mean well) – because Alzheimer’s drugs simply DO NOT WORK.   But I’ve uncovered a MAJOR medical breakthrough – one that can help REVERSE memory issues.  This...
  6. Urgent Warning for Alzheimer Families

    If you have a family member suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, you know it’s not just a memory disorder. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) causes major behavior and mood disturbances. According to doctors, less than 10 percent of Alzheimer’s patients remained free from symptoms of “psychopathology” during the course of their disease. In other words, agitation, aggression, depression, anxiety, paranoid delusions, and insomnia are very much the norm for AD patients. As a result, today’s Alzheimer’s patient is all too often prescribed some type of antipsychotic drug to control their behavior. Thioridazine, chlorpromazine, haloperidol, trifluoperazine, or risperidone all belong to this class of drugs.

    Limited options for Alzheimer’s patients

    A new study to be published in Lancet Neurology, the respected British medical journal, confirms what one might guess about AD patients prescribed antipsychotics: the drugs shorten their lives. In fact, a patient taking an antipsychotic drug only has a 46 percent survival rate at 24 months (as compared to 71 percent for a patient taking a placebo). Moreover, only 30 percent of AD patients were alive at 36 months after having begun treatment with antipsychotics (as opposed to 59 percent taking a placebo). Bottom line here: if you’ve got a loved one with AD, think long and hard about using an antipsychotic drug to control their behavior. If you’ve run out of options, authors of the study suggest using the drugs for a limited time (3 months or less) to see if behavior improves.
