Today’s program is just for you!!!
Today, Dr. Sevlie will be discussing our second program on Alzheimer’s disease and age-related brain decline, which are associated with inflammation of the brain and neurodegenerative diseases of the brain. Dr. Sevlie will be sharing powerful daily strategies that you can use immediately to begin dramatically lowering your risk and prevent age-related brain decline, memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease and associated brain related neurodegenerative diseases."
Dr. Sevlie’s key dietary considerations for Alzheimer’s prevention:
- Mayo Clinic has revealed that diets rich in carbohydrates and starches are associated with an 89%. Increase risk for dementia. While high-fat- healthy fat diets are associated with a 44% reduced risk of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
- Eat real food, ideally, organic and avoid processed foods of all kinds to avoid GM oh grains, gluten, pesticides, such as glyphosate found in roundup.
- Avoid consumption of animals raised in CAFO’s-confined animal farming operations.
- Reduce calorie consumption or Intermittent fasting and by considerably restricting carbohydrate consumption. This forces the body into a carbohydrate deficit and causes the body to burn on fat which is ultimately converted into ketones as a result of fasting, which protects and fuels the brain.
- Optimize gastrointestinal gut flora i.e. friendly bacteria by taking a quality probiotic.
- Increase consumption of all healthy fats, including animal-based omega-3 fatty acids, which includes, organic butter from raw milk, grass fed beef, organic virgin olive oil and coconut oil, nuts like pecans and macadamia nuts, free range eggs, wild Alaskan salmon and avocados.
- Improve your magnesium levels. Preliminary research also strongly suggests a decreasing Alzheimer’s symptoms with increased levels of magnesium.
- Increase daily intake of water man 3 L of water per day which is equivalent to almost 1 gallon and 2 L for women each day. Dehydration mimics Alzheimer's and the brain needs proper hydration for proper memory and neurological messaging.
- Avoid and eliminate all mercury from your body. D Malcolm, fillings, which are 50% mercury by weight are one of the major sources of heavy metal toxicity. This should be done under professional supervision by qualified natural healthcare provider. Our office offers these services in conjunction with a qualified Dentist certified in mercury amalgam removal.
- Avoid aluminum, such as antiperspirants, nonstick cookware, and vaccine adjuvants.
- Avoid flu vaccinations as most contain mercury as well as neurotoxic and immune toxic agents.
- Avoid anticholinergic drugs that block the natural production of acetylcholine the memory neurotransmitter these drugs include certain nighttime pain relievers, antihistamines, sleep aids, certain antidepressants, and narcotic pain relievers.
- Avoid cholesterol-lowering statins, drugs which have been linked to dementia and Alzheimer’s.
