Reverse the effects with this popular diet trend
If you read this month’s front-page story, then you know it’s not an overstatement to say that obesity kills. And it’s and not always in the way that you’d expect, either. Sure, those extra pounds put your heart at risk. But ultimately, there’s not an organ in your body that doesn’t suffer from obesity’s sinister effects.
And yes, that includes your brain, too.
That’s the takeaway of a new study which included more than 1.3 million adults in Europe and the United States. This analysis appeared in a recent issue of the journal, Alzheimer’s and Dementia. And it featured data from nearly 40 studies and five different countries.
Over a follow-up period spanning 38 years, nearly 7,000 participants went on to develop dementia. Overall, their BMIs were higher 20 years before diagnosis—and each 5-unit BMI increase was linked to a higher risk of dementia down the road, by as much as 33 percent.1
For reference, a 5-unit BMI increase adds up to roughly 32 pounds for a 5-foot, 7-inch person—enough to bump you from normal weight to overweight, or from overweight to obese. And unfortunately, that’s not an unusual amount of weight for someone to pack on over the years.
Think about it—the number of people with dementia has doubled over the last 25 years. All while the obesity epidemic has continued to spiral out of control. And it should be pretty obvious by now… that’s no coincidence.
Consider this another lifesaving reason to keep your weight loss resolutions once and for all this year… and yet another reason to consider enrolling in my Drug-Free Protocol for Reversing Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
I built my protocol around a critical aspect of Alzheimer’s that essentially gets ignored by mainstream medicine in its obsession with plaques, tangles, and other specific markers occurring in the brain.
The REAL culprit destroying your memory
While I don’t deny that those markers play a role in the development of the condition, the fact is, at its core, Alzheimer’s is a metabolic disease. So addressing—and correcting—metabolic dysfunction is an absolute must if you want to prevent or reverse cognitive decline or dementia.
And I lay out exactly how to do that in this brand new online learning tool.
In fact, as I mention on page 6, the ketogenic diet—which I discuss extensively in Lesson 16 of the protocol—is one of your most powerful weapons, particularly against brain inflammation.
And that’s not the only route by which ketosis combats Alzheimer’s disease either. Because it just so happens that this condition impedes your brain’s ability to use sugar for energy, too—dropping glucose metabolism by as much as 40 percent.
This “energy crisis” contributes to both the structural and cognitive dysfunction we associate with dementia. But research suggests that your brain can substitute ketones (in particular, one called betahydroxybutyrate, or BetaXb) in place of sugar for energy.
And get this—as part of another recent pilot study, researchers placed 15 subjects with mild Alzheimer’s on a ketogenic diet for three months. They assessed cognitive function before the diet period, immediately after the diet period, and then a month later once the subjects had resumed their usual diets.
Among these subjects, ten were able to achieve sustained ketosis. And these patients showed significant cognitive improvement when compared to the five patients who didn’t follow the diet closely enough. Those who achieved sustained ketosis experienced a four-point increase in the Alzheimer’s Disease Assessment Scale-Cognitive Subscale Test (ADAS Cog), which is used to measure memory, language, and praxis.
Four points may not seem like much, but it’s FAR better than any current drug can offer—and is also what experts consider to be “cognitively significant.”3
Unfortunately, however, these improvements disappeared once the patients returned to their normal diets. Which means that—as with most things where your health is concerned—continued compliance is key.
Shutting down dementia, one natural step at a time
Of course, a ketogenic diet isn’t the only natural tool against dementia. In fact, there are dozens of science-backed strategies making major inroads against Alzheimer’s. And some of the most effective natural Alzheimer’s-reversing techniques target aspects of health that don’t seem like they have anything to do with the brain.
Which is why most mainstream neurologists—and even other natural brain protocols—don’t bother to include them.
But in order to protect yourself or your loved ones from the devastating effects of dementia, you need to know about ALL your options. And, you need step-by-step guidance on how to actually put them to use in your daily life. That’s precisely why I created my Drug-Free Protocol for Reversing Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
Not a day goes by where I don’t have a patient come to me, terrified that their memory is headed down a slippery slope. But I’m always able to reassure them that Alzheimer’s doesn’t have to be a death sentence. In fact, with the right tools, full recovery IS possible. I’ll show you how.
