They've SHOT IT down…
WARNED against it…
And they've even had it BANNED!
The mainstream has attacked CBD like nothing else out there. Heck, I haven't seen them go this hard against something since they tried to shut down chiropractors in the 1970s.
And that makes me wonder…
Just what are they so afraid of???
Well, friend, new research shows EXACTLY what they're afraid of…
Because scientists have found that safe and natural CBD can do something very similar to a drug that costs $56,000 a year.
And that may get in the way of Big Pharma being able to really RAKE IT IN.
How CBD may protect dementia patients
First, let me get this out of the way off the top…
Cannabidiol, or CBD, comes from the same plant as marijuana… but it's NOT the psychoactive part.
It WON'T make you high or loopy… and you're NOT a "stoner" or "pothead" for using it.
But it CAN help with dozens of common health conditions, from mood… to pain… to sleep.
Now, the latest research reveals what could turn out to be one of its most important uses yet…
It can effectively "wash" the brain of damaged proteins called beta-amyloid, a.k.a. the plaques that accumulate in people with dementia.
If that sounds a little familiar, that's because the feds just approved a drug to clear that same damage.
Except THAT medication can cause brain bleeding and swelling… as well as host of other side effects from puking to falling…
All at the cost of $56,000 a year.
The new study on mice shows CBD seems to work in a different – and potentially safer – way.
Instead of using a drug to race through your brain, it activates some of your own defenses… enhancing the TREM2 and IL-33 proteins.
Those two are basically part of your "internal cleaning system." When they light up, they sweep through and help immune cells to clear out plaques and other damage.
None of this means this will cure your Alzheimer's.
In fact, most newer studies show that JUST clearing beta amyloid WON'T cure or reverse the disease… which is why studies show that $56,000 drug may not actually improve cognition. (What a scam!)
The CBD is different, however, at least in mice -- because it did something to the rodents that the drug hasn't done in humans.
As the plaques were washed out, their cognition actually IMPROVED.
Yep. Cheap-o CBD might BEAT OUT a drug they're hoping to make BILLIONS on.
No wonder they hate it!
Don't count on this alone. It's a mouse study, after all, not people.
Heck, don't count on ANY single strategy alone.
Dementia has many potential causes… so hit it from every possible angle you can, as early as possible.
Along with considering CBD…
- SWITCH to a diet of minimal carbs and zero processed foods
- TEST for dementia "mimics" such as chronic Lyme, and
- EXPLORE detoxifying therapies such as chelation.
In addition, consider proven brain-enhancing supplements such as ginkgo biloba, phosphatidyl serine, high-dose intravenous vitamin C, NAC, ALA and others.
For best results, work closely with a naturopathic physician experienced in this stuff.
