  1. COMING SOON: New Alzheimer’s drugs DELUGE! [But will they work???]

    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.

    Except…

    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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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...
  4. [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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. ‘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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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.
