Alzheimer’s and Dementia

Worldwide, 50 million people are living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Alzheimer’s disease is a degenerative brain disease and the most common form of dementia. Dementia is not a specific disease.

Scientists believe the problem begins with the slow degeneration of the brain cells with two abnormal structures: plaques and tangles. It is thought that the plaques and tangles are the prime cause for damaging and killing nerve cells. The plaque is deposits of beta-amyloid, which is a protein fragment that builds up in the spaces between the nerve cells. The tangles on the other hand are twisted fibers of another protein called tau that builds up within the cells. Most experts believe both the plaque and tangles play a critical role in blocking communication among cells and disrupting the normal cell’s processes.

Based on my fifty years of clinical experience the presence of the plaque and tangles are a reaction to an alteration within in the brain tissue. The potential factors that can elicit such changes can be derived from three sources: physical, chemical, and psychological. Structural distortions like a concussion, which will alter the blood flow and accumulate metabolic wastes, and initiate inflammation, scarring and degeneration.

Second, chemicals and heavy metal toxicity from root canal teeth (mercaptans, hydrogen sulfide, and thioethers), mercury fillings, arsenic laden pesticides used on chicken feed, chemtrail comtaminats (aluminum, barium, and strontium), radiation from Fukushima, Japan (March 2011), glyphosates (Monsanto’s Round-Up), viruses like cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, Lyme infection, and a myriad of other environmental chemicals. Another important aspect is the fact that most peoples’ membranes are inflamed from the adulterated fats in our food, especially the omega-6 fatty acids (corn, canola, safflower, sunflower, and soy). Once corrupted by the adulterated oils, the amount of oxygen entering the cell is dramatically reduced. A perfect storm in the form of Alzheimer’s disease is just a matter of time. The third factor, is psychological. Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer originator of the New German Medicine, has shown that emotional traumas can form calcium deposits in the brain and ultimately form cancer anywhere in the body. The common denominator of all three groups is that they will initiate inflammation. Chronic inflammation will result in fibrosis or scaring, which in turn will cause decrease circulation, a build-up of toxic wastes, and ultimately cellular dysfunction. In my professional opinion, the plaque and tangles are a direct reaction of the body to the chronic inflammation and its sequela. Depending on where the degeneration occurs in the brain, the location will dictate the symptomatology exhibited by the patient. One recent case has provided validation of my theory.

Case Study: Alzheimer’s

Patrick Toflus was referred to me for evaluation of moderate to severe Alzheimer’s symptoms. When Patrick first came for evaluation, he had a glazed look on his face like a deer in headlights. He also was unable to follow instructions and physically had to be put into the examining chair. Employing Quantum Testing Techniques, I diagnosed glyphosate, Lyme, and mercury in the left side of his brain. A nutritional program was tested to select specific nutrients to remove the offending “splinters” present. A comprehensive program was also established to prepare his body for the detoxification process. After three months of treatments, Patrick was fully cognizant and was able to follow directions. Unfortunately, his speech was not fully understandable but he made a concerted effort to express his thoughts. Of interest, the mercury that was diagnosed in his brain was located in the Broca speech center. Do you think there is a correlation?

Patrick’s wife, Lauren, is a certified conventionally trained nurse and was amazed at the progress her husband made in just three months. The medications that Patrick was prescribed were primarily to control his symptoms but there was not significant improvement. None of the physicians had any idea of what was in his brain or even thought to evaluate for possible contaminants. In additions, Lauren had to leave Patrick with his parents while she arranged a move to Sarasota, Florida. His parents were also truly amazed at their son’s progress is such a short time. I believe that with further treatment using specific nutrients for brain repair and scalar energy that Patrick will gain more skills and improved speech.

The 10 Early Signs and Symptoms of Alzheimer’s

  1. Memory loss that disrupts daily life: One of the most common signs of Alzheimer’s disease, especially in the early stage, is forgetting recently learned information.
  2. Challenges in planning or solving problems: may experience changes in their ability to develop and follow a plan or work with numbers.
  3. Difficulty completing familiar tasks at home, at work or at leisure: often find it hard to complete daily tasks.
  4. Confusion with time or place: People with Alzheimer’s can lose track of dates, seasons and the passage of time.
  5. Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships: having vision problems is a sign of Alzheimer’s. They may have difficulty reading, judging distance and determining color or contrast, which may cause problems with driving.
  6. New problems with words in speaking or writing: may have trouble following or joining a conversation.
  7. Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps: may put things in unusual places. They may lose things and be unable to go back over their steps to find them again. Sometimes, they may accuse others of stealing.
  8. Decreased or poor judgment: may experience changes in judgment or decision-making. For example, they may use poor judgment when dealing with money, giving large amounts to telemarketers.
  9. Withdrawal from work or social activities: may start to remove themselves from hobbies, social activities, work projects or sports. They may have trouble keeping up with a favorite sports team or remembering how to complete a favorite hobby.
  10. Changes in mood and personality: They can become confused, suspicious, depressed, fearful or anxious. They may be easily upset at home, at work, with friends or in places where they are out of their comfort zone.
