Logically I assumed the term “Zombie Apocalypse” was a joke; however, our temple’s brains are under relentless chemical assault and it shows. Plus you’ve been programmed not to eat plant foods as The Great Creator intended and Hippocrates decreed.
The heartbreaking disease is proliferating at an extraordinary rate. A new government-funded report confirms what advocacy groups have warned for decades: The number of Americans living with Alzheimer’s will triple by 2050.
Cue the Walking Brain Dead! You think you are young and insusceptible? Studies found evidence that the biological processes that cause mental decline begin 20 to 25 years before symptoms of mental decline. “There is great urgency for meaningful, timely and comprehensive action,” says Maria Carrillo, vice president of medical and scientific relations for the Alzheimer’s Association.
The Silver Tsunami is a degenerative disease of a polluted environment, vitamin deficiency, genes, and lifestyle that destroys brain cells and fosters the most common forms of dementia. An estimated 5.5 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer’s disease. (The National Institute on Aging, NIH, and the Alzheimer’s Association.)
There’s a buzz suggesting the healthy virtues of turmeric, ginger, berries, and broccoli sprouts slow the progression of Alzheimer’s. America has four times the rates of Alzheimer’s than India and which is attributed to their daily intake of these anti-inflammatory turmeric, ginger and significantly more from God’s garden.
Turmeric counteracts symptoms of Alzheimer’s by blocking formation of beta-amyloid, the sticky protein substance believed to have a hand in cell and tissue loss indicative of an Alzheimer’s brain. Naturopaths suggest one-half to one gram of powdered root, up to 3 grams per day. The Arthritis Foundation suggests 400-600 milligram (mg) capsules three times a day. Take Warfarin or Coumadin, preparing for surgery, pregnant, or have gallbladder disease? Do your research, do not guess! Work with your phlebotomist.
The National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences and Indian Journal of Experimental Biology, and a 2007 study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine say fresh ginger root may protect your mind, memory and cognitive function as you get older. And a new John’s Hopkins research suggests Broccoli sprouts can stimulate brain regeneration.
Eating a handful of brightly colored berries a day could help declutter the mind and ward off the mental effects of aging by triggering your brain’s ‘housekeeper’ mechanism that mops up cells blamed for memory lapses and other mental decline. Know that you are such a beautiful miracle.
