  1. New hope for Alzheimer's found in 'forbidden' oil [Wow!]

    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.

  2. Does the NEW Alzheimer's drug live up to the HYPE? [Don't bet on it]

    Call me crazy…

    Call me old-fashioned…

    Call me a hopelessly antiquated stick-in-the-mud if you want to…

    But I thought the whole point of a drug approval is that the company has to PROVE the thing works BEFORE it's given the OK.

    Turns out that's just wishful thinking in today's America.

    Because the FDA just approved a new drug for Alzheimer's – one that they CLAIM will CHANGE THE GAME for this disease.

    But read between the lines… and you'll find something else.

    They actually have NO CLUE whether it works or not!

    The FDA ordered a new clinical trial to finally figure it out…

    But in what might be the agency's most INSANE move yet… they approved the drug in the meantime ANYWAY!

    Yes, friend, anyone who takes it now is basically an unwitting test subject in a sick experiment – one that could lead to pain and heartbreak if it turns out the drug doesn't work.

    And… as you'll see in a moment… even the FDA knows there's a good chance it WON'T work!

    The UGLY truth about the NEW dementia drug

    Last autumn, an FDA advisory panel – a group that tends to be VERY friendly to drugs and drug companies – kicked this drug right in the rear.

    They didn't just REJECT it.

    They voted 8-1 AGAINST it

    Writing that "there is no persuasive evidence" that it improves outcomes in dementia patients.

    That shoulda been case closed.

    Instead, top FDA mucky-mucks REJECTED the advice… and APPROVED the drug anyway

    TICKING OFF the panel so thoroughly that 3 of its members reportedly QUIT over the decision.

    Not exactly a ROUSING start for this drug.

    Here's what we know…

    Studies show it CAN reduce the levels of beta amyloid plaques in the brain… and those are known markers of dementia.

    Except…

    Emerging research finds that while beta amyloid is often a SIGN of dementia damage

    Removing it WON'T reverse the disease itself any more than your car's wipers will stop the rain from falling.

    That's why 2 major trials found the drug DIDN'T do much for real-world outcomes… such as slowing the decline that marks dementia.

    The studies were SO fruitless… they were cut off early!

    The companies behind the drug then came forward with some "new discovery" from the same data that ostensibly found it can slow cognitive and functional decline by 22% in some cases.

    Call me cynical, but I find that more than a little suspicious.

    So, here's what I suggest…

    Don't place any hope in this drug. Not until you see some REAL SCIENCE that proves it works (and I don't expect that'll be forthcoming anytime soon, and possibly not ever).

    If you or a loved one are diagnosed with dementia, first RULE OUT "false" dementias

    Which can be caused by drug side effectschronic Lyme and other undiagnosed infections… and/or other hidden conditions.

    Most mainstream docs WON'T look for them… so work with a naturopathic physician.

    If that doesn't get you anywhere, switch to a diet of all-natural foods (which I recommend doing anyway), and load up on brain-enhancing nutrients and compounds including ginkgo biloba, phosphatidyl serine, high-dose intravenous vitamin C, NAC, ALA, and more.

    P.S. Earlier this year, I shared with you why so many mainstream efforts are FUTILE in improving Alzheimer's patients' conditions.

  3. [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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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.
