I read an article today about the surprising increase in the incidence of Alzheimer’s disease…now considered the 6th leading cause of death in the United States rising 68 percent between 2000 and 2010 according to this source cited by National Public Radio.
“It is an epidemic and currently there is no way to delay, prevent or cure it”. The frustration evident in this statement is similar to that seen in health “experts” confused and confounded by disorders such as cancer, heart disease and immune disorders.
This frustration is likely to remain as long as research is driven by conventional thinking. Albert Einstein famously said that “…no problem is solved by the same thinking (consciousness) that created it”.
This NPR article goes on to state that “Alzheimer’s causes damage to cells of the brain”. Is it possible (insert irony here) that maybe we have this a bit backward? Is Alzheimer’s really the “cause” or is Alzheirver’s really merely more that a collectively named condition in which there is damage to neural cells?
I would say the latter. It is known that in Alzheimer’s the DHA component of Omega 3 fatty acids are largely, or totally, absent. Could it be then that Alzheimer’s is the end result of nutritional abuse…now on such a grand scale that it will kill at such a rate to be considered the sixth leading cause of death in our society?
So where is the smoking gun? Some dis-ease named Alzheimer’s lurking behind the proverbial bush to devastate some unsuspecting citizen? Could it be that our food making machine has been so far derailed from anything close to whole food nutrition that our neural cells are being devastated not by some disease causing virus or germ but actually from the absence of the very nutrients that our nerve cells are screaming for?
Much of my focus, along with nitric oxide science for circulatory wellness, is targeted at health and wellness enhancement by utilizing highly bio-available forms of Vit. E tocotrienol fraction enhanced Omega 3’s. We are seeing such tremendous results, great anecdotal progress, AND the scientific community is beginning to wake up.
How long will it take for the media…and then the general wellness seeking public…to get on board? Hard to say.
In the meantime it “behooves” us…(had to use that word this week) to continue to focus on feeding our body the nutrition that makes healthy new cells. Our brain cells included.
Eat well today and remember…it is probably not enough to eat that extra serving of salmon or take that great-discipline saving tablet of Omega 3…the Omega 6:3 ratio has to be restored. This can only be done by not only adding the “good stuff” to our diet but also eliminating the “bad stuff”. And remember that the best source of Omega 3 is a diet rich in plant-source fatty acids. Our current “SAD” diet (heavily processed foods) cannot do this for us…even if we are supplementing with well-meaning intention (this is largely due to the overwhelming presence of Omega 6 fatty acids in manufactured “food”).
The diet must be totally transformed.
IN-JOY your healthy life!
