It’s odd how the mind works.

Maybe you’re in the grocery store and pick up some garlic stuffed olives. You get home, and a couple of days later you open them up. Your salivary glands are dripping in anticipation of that garlicky flavor as you place one in your mouth.

You chomp down, and your taste buds are shocked!

It turns out you accidentally picked up olives that were stuffed with blue cheese. When you look at the label, you realize that the label is a different color than usual. And it clearly states “Blue Cheese Stuffed Olives.” But you never even noticed these details when you plucked them off the shelf. Continue reading

CBD Shows Promise as Treatment for Alzheimer’s

I was absolutely floored when the FDA approved the new Alzheimer’s drug, aducanumab, last June.

This is another one of those drugs that reduces amyloid plaques in the brain. But decades of research have already proven that targeting the clearance of beta amyloid is a massive failure.

The fact is amyloid plaques themselves do not cause Alzheimer’s disease. Continue reading

4 Reversable Reasons for Memory Loss

By David Blyweiss, M.D., Advanced Natural Wellness

Nobody likes it when their memory starts slipping. It’s worrisome. It’s hard not to wonder if it’s the beginning of dementia.

In some cases, it might be. But in most cases, probably not.

One of the number one reasons for memory loss is that you’re not getting enough sleep. Just a single night of poor sleep can turn you into an absent-minded birdbrain for the next day or two. Continue reading

Wash Your Brain Clean with a Good Night’s Sleep

For me, getting a good night’s sleep is a serious matter.

That’s why I avoid staying over at other people’s houses whenever possible. I just don’t sleep well… usually because they keep the temperature warmer than I’d like and far above what’s been shown to be an optimal range.

I take this seriously because sleep isn’t just a matter of feeling alert the next day. Good sleep sessions can actually make a long term difference in whether you develop a degenerative brain disease. Continue reading

Recently the mother of one of my patients passed away. Debbie was understandably upset. She was also confused…

You see, her mom had been in a nursing home with Alzheimer’s disease. Over the years, she had suffered from many other health problems including heart disease, diabetes and even a few bouts with aspiration pneumonia.

So, Debbie was shocked when she received the death certificate and discovered her mother’s cause of death was listed as A) Severe Dementia and B) Failure to Thrive. Continue reading

There’s a good reason why levels of dementia are on the rise in the United States. And it has a lot to do with our “SAD” American diet (a.k.a. Standard American Diet.)

So, if you want to live a long life free from dementia, the best thing you can do is feed your brain the right types of food.

There’s an expression, “You are what you eat.” It’s especially true when it comes to your brain health. Continue reading

  • Why do you sometimes “forget to remember” things?
  • 3 delicious foods for all day mental stamina
  • 5 more foods to maintain a razor-sharp memory for years to come

One of the most common complaints I hear among my patients is that their memory isn’t as good as it should be. They “forget to remember” things that they never would have failed to recall in the past.

In other cases, their memory is sharp until about two in the afternoon. Then brain fog kicks in. Their brain suddenly seems to “stop working”.

But what can you do when you find yourself doing things like going to the grocery store without your food list? How can you stop embarrassing yourself by getting your neighbors’ names mixed up? And is there any way to stop your math, computing and reading skills from abandoning you as the day progresses? Continue reading

  • Over-the-counter allergy meds linked to Alzheimer’s and dementia
  • Are antihistamines shrinking your brain?
  • Here’s how to relieve allergy symptoms… without losing brainpower

I don’t think I know a single person who has never taken an antihistamine. In fact, the use of these over-the-counter drugs is so commonplace that it’s easy to forget that they come with serious side effects.

One of the worst, by far, is their link to the development of Alzheimer’s and dementia. Continue reading
