I truly enjoyed the first episode of the series “Regain Your Brain,” which was authored and hosted by Peggy Sarlin. This series have 12 episodes, and it is the second after the “Awakening from Alzheimer’s” series. They were both produced by Lee Euler. This episode will help us start our plan for protecting and saving our brains.
You may tune in to the next eleven episodes starting tomorrow, which will only be available for 24 hours (each episode). However, a copy of the episodes and other freebies are available on their website.
Here are some things which I’ve got from the first episode:
- Brain plaques or beta-amyloids are not the cause of Alzheimer’s, but they are our body’s way of protecting it (antimicrobial effect)
- Drug prescriptions for Alzheimer’s don’t work because they want to remove brain plaques
- Half the people with dementia don’t have brain plaques
- Personalized medicine is helpful in treating Alzheimer’s
- There are many things/factors that give you dementia or memory loss
- MOLDS are the cause of Alzheimer’s (inhalational Alzheimer’s disease)
- Lyme disease and other infections (parasitic, cold sores, herpes, etc.) can cause Alzheimer’s
- Alzheimer’s is actually type 3 diabetes (so watch your blood sugar)
- To amplify the growth of new brain cells (Neuroplasticity), focus on amplifying the BDNF (growth hormone of the brain)
- Hormones, such as estrogen, progesterone, and pregnenolone, play an important role in preventing Alzheimer’s
- Energy (light) can change brain structure
- Music can be used as a therapy; it worked on autistic children
- BRAIN EXERCISES are very important. We should have new learning everyday to stretch our brains
- Regarding genetics—having bad genes is not a death sentence
- RESTORATIVE SLEEP is also very important. We must make sure to have 6.5-8 hours of sleep everyday to have several cycles of REM sleep.
- Knowing our “circadian rhythm” will help us get better sleep
Additional from an article by Lee Euler:
“Estradiol hormone protects middle-aged women from Alzheimer’s.”
“Shrink the Risk of Alzheimer’s”
“One of the most important measures is to keep your weight down. Research shows that fat around the belly increases the danger of developing Alzheimer’s.4 And the scientists in Germany who examined how menopausal reductions in estradiol threaten a woman’s brain also noted that visceral fat around the waist does the same thing.
Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. A study in Ireland (along with plenty of other research) shows these foods help preserve your cognitive health.5
Plus – here’s my broken-record speech: Get plenty of sleep6 and daily exercise7 to keep your brain in good shape. All of these lifestyle factors boost your odds of keeping your wits about you.” – LEE EULER
Thank you, Mr. Euler, for producing and sharing this series! 🙂
