For some reason the topic of Alzheimer’s came up several times during this past week. After all, it is now officially the 6th leading cause of death in America right now. That’s right, something that you didn’t ever hear about 50 years ago, is now #6. And Everyone that asked me this nasty disease had more or less the same question, Hey, what do you know about Alzheimer’s? And when I shared with them what I knew, they were surprised! What I knew, I thought most people knew. Turns out, not one of them had ever heard the information I shared with them. I was shocked. They were shocked. Shock fest. And I thought, why haven’t these people heard about this? It’s everywhere. Well, turns out it’s not everywhere, you just have to know where to look. The most significant medical and clinical findings about Alzheimer’s is buried. Totally buried.
Let me show you exactly what I mean. And then, I’ll let you make the call to see if you feel the same way I do. Perplexed. Upset. Confused. Surprised. Ticked. Peeved. Okay, that’s enough.
Now, first and foremost, what is Alzheimer’s? It’s a form of dementia. Okay, what’s dementia?
Dementia is a general term that is used to describe a handful of conditions… loss of memory being the most popular, because memory is the second thing to go when you age. What’s the first? I can’t remember! Hey, Oh!! Dementia also impacts communication, focus, judgement and reasoning. The literature says that dementia is caused by damage to the brain, and that damage can come from a variety of sources. It could be genetic, traumatic, autoimmune, sickness, age, and other. So, a different type of damage means a different name. But all of them still having a handful of similarities, plus some variations.
Now, Alzheimer’s is a specific type of dementia effecting mostly memory, language, and behavior. A specific type of dementia meaning a specific type of damage to the brain. Got it. So, what is the damage related to Alzheimer’s? Good question. Two things. Plaque and tangles.
See, when a message is sent from point a to b, it’s done over several nerves. Both Plaque formations and tangles destroys the connection from one nerve to the other. And in so doing, you lose the message being sent.
Okay, so I don’t want any of those plaque and tangle things happening to my brain. So, what do I do? Is there anything I can do? The word is absolutely because only 1-2% of Alzheimer’s cases is genetic. That means 98-99% of Alzheimer’s cases are lifestyle driven! Oh wow, so I can do something about it. EXACTLY. Okay, so is there a major lifestyle factor that is closely associated with Alzheimer’s?
Yes, there is a major, massive lifestyle connection with Alzheimer’s in the literature that is incredibly hard to find when you search the term Alzheimer’s.
When you search Alzheimer’s disease, you get definitions, signs and symptoms, experimental medications, bla blah, bla blah bla blah. And when you find something that says cause, it usually points you right back to plaques and tangles. K, that doesn’t help. I know! You will not be able to find anything productive from a lifestyle standpoint. Oh sure, you may find a eat right and get some exercise. But I can find that for constipation too.
In order to find the truth and this massive lifestyle connection with Alzheimer’s, you have to search the term…ready…Type 3 diabetes. Type 3 diabetes? Never heard of that before. Cause it’s buried. Wait, did you mean type 2 diabetes? No, type 3 diabetes. Type 1 and 2 have been around for a long time and are used to describe blood sugar and the body damage it causes. Type 3 diabetes describes blood sugar and the brain damage it causes. So, you mean…yes. Sugar. Why sugar? Because sugar creates and drives massive amounts of inflammation in not only the body but in the brain as well. Mind blown.
Inflammation. What is that? Inflammation is the great age accelerator. You get older faster and things break down sooner. That’s inflammation. It’s the gas pedal of life, and not in a good way.
Now, instead of searching Alzheimer’s, search Type 3 diabetes, and you get all sorts of literature and links about the connection, including the one dating back to 2008, where the journal of diabetes, science and technology says. Alzheimer’s is type 3 diabetes. Bam! And since then there have been dozens upon dozens of studies confirming this to be true. Wow, that’s crazy.
Okay, so the buried lifestyle that drives Alzheimer’s disease is a diabetic lifestyle. Bingo! Check your blood sugar!!! Get off the road that leads to horrific damage like plaque and tangles to the brain. Now, I have had this conversation before and the most common response to this is..
Yeah, but I don’t eat that much sugar. Chances are you do, you just don’t know it or realize it.
