MEMBER ACCESS: Mercury Depletes Glutathione Peroxidase-Toxic Mechanisms In Alzheimer’s Disease Risk

The research demonstrating the deleterious and toxic effects of mercury on brain function and structure in neurodegenerative disease processes is plentiful. Adding to the research literature, a May/2009 study demonstrated that methylmercury* induces neurotoxicity, by significantly inactivating one the brain's ...

MEMBER ACCESS: Oxidative Stress and the Thromboxane Receptor—A Central Pivot in the Production of Neurofibrillary Tangles

New research published Oct. 13 (2014) by the journal Neurobiology of Aging revealed that the free radicals* produced during oxidative stress in Alzheimer's disease (AD) bind to a protein receptor in the brain designated as the: Thromboxane Receptor A2 (TP) ...

MEMBER ACCESS: TREM2 gene mutation raises the risk of Alzheimer’s disease

By Ralph Sanchez, MTCM, CNS, D.Hom. Recently (11/13), a rare variant of the TREM2 gene, designated as R47H, was shown to increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. Individuals with the variant may be up to 3 to 5 times ...

MEMBER ACCESS: Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor—Growth Factors in Neurogenesis and the Protection Against Alzheimer’s Disease Progression

By Ralph Sanchez, L.Ac.CNS,D.Hom. One of the longest held thoughts about damage to our brain's cells (neurons) was that once they were lost, it was a fait accompli. Damaged neurons were considered damaged goods, never to regain their function, and ...

Alzheimer’s Disease—The Hidden Midlife Crisis...

Are you in your 40s or 50s and thinking about what your 70s and 80s will look like? Have you given any thought to how well you'll be able to walk, talk and think about your circumstances then? Yes, we all do a little planning for what lies ahead, but in many cases our brains are left out of all that looking ahead deliberation. The irony is that in not doing so, we could let a precious and irreplaceable asset slip away. - mailchi.mp/fbcaf73338a2/hidden-midlife-crisis

Neurogenesis - mailchi.mp/7c6c7178ba62/neurogenesis

Many studies have investigated how neurogenesis—the growth and development of new neurons—continues into adulthood in key regions of the brain that includes the hippocampal area (hippocampal formation), and thus this phenomena is referred to as Adult Hippocampal Neurogenesis (AHN).

Neurogenesis builds a cognitive reserve of neurons and synapses that may protect against dementia in the presence of a neurodegenerative disease process such as Alzheimer's.

What a tremendous resource! Thank you for putting all of this great research in one place! I am also extremely interested in warding off a family history of Alzheimer’s and Dementia. Medicine can be so very powerful when we are able to identify the biochemical inefficiencies, apply specific dietary and nutritional remedies and compile a protocol to heal not just an individual, but generations. Thank you Ralph!

This is an incredible article! Very powerful information! Thank you so much for putting it together the way that you have. This information needs to get out to the masses. You explained that very well.

Dr. Jones

Absolutely the BEST article I have read on the insulin/AD connection. As always, your brilliance is very much appreciated!

Kristin Rotblatt, L.Ac.

Thank you so much for this well written article. Looking forward to future updates. Thanks for this well illustrated, researched, and detailed yet succinct article.
