When we talk about neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's, every detail we hear is frightening. In modern society it seems that such neurodegenerative diseases as Alzheimer's are more and more common, even in young people. The consequences of this condition are downright frightening in that these consequences lead to loss of contact with reality from a mental point of view. Despite advances and developments in the medical field, there are a lot of unknowns about Alzheimer's, this disease being the third in the U.S. death toll in statistics. currently. The medical field in terms of brain diseases and in terms of conditions related to cognitive decline is the field where the lowest success rates were recorded in both medicine and science.
According to Dr. Bredesen, he states in his book "The End of Alzheimer's" that scientists have not performed a correct analysis for neurodegenerative diseases. In the case of Alzheimer's we are talking about a certain set of molecules in the brain that are unbalanced. With the aging process, the balance of this set of molecules can be influenced by various factors such as trauma, hormonal changes or various specific genes. All this can affect those functions of the brain that are related to its maintenance. When diagnosing Alzheimer's, the question of the causes of the disease must always be asked in order to correctly and accurately identify the main cause that led to the onset of the disease. And the focus should be on the symptoms.
In the case of Alzheimer's disease, the primary goal is not so much to remove the chronic inflammation generated by amyloid plaques in the brain, but to eliminate the factors that generate that inflammation. In this way the brain can regenerate and heal. An accurate and precise understanding of the imbalance means avoiding confusing symptoms with the cause. In typical cases of Alzheimer's disease there are between 10 and 25 factors that contribute significantly to the neurodegenerative process, and among these factors we can mention the inflammatory causes, the aging process, type 1.5 causes that are representative of people resistant to insulin, toxins and biotoxins that affect the immune system and the brain, trauma or vascular causes.
All these causes generate biochemical imbalances in the brain and lead to differences in the brain. From this point of view, it is necessary to identify ways in which the biochemistry of the brain can be supported for its healing. Only in this way can further damage to the brain be avoided. It is precisely from this aspect that the therapies based exclusively on drugs did not have results in the case of neurodegenerative diseases. Given the complexity of the brain and our entire body, the things we need to do to prevent or cure Alzheimer's-like neurodegenerative diseases so that we can restore balance to the brain are a number of approaches. There is a holistic approach to lifestyle that needs to be taken to cure neurodegenerative diseases. From this point of view, the treatments we need to focus on include the following:
a. Following a proper diet and the use of specific supplements to generate or administer ketones that support energy but at the same time build a healthy intestinal microbiome;
b. Practicing exercises to develop insulin sensitivity and the development of ketosis; this is done through various aerobic exercises and strength training;
c. The treatment of sleep apnea is done by checking the internal oxygen level and by checking the context in which this contributes to a more restful sleep;
d. Stress management is essential in that uncontrolled and toxic stress becomes a determining factor for the occurrence of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease;
e. Training and brain stimulation;
f. The use of approved hormones, in cases where it is needed;
g. Use of medications when absolutely necessary.
In the case of neurodegenerative diseases, the sooner measures for prevention and cure are taken, the more likely it is to benefit from the effectiveness of these measures. People over the age of 45 can use a cognoscopy, which is actually a set of tests to assess the risk of neurodegenerative diseases.
For symptomatic people, performing a volumetric MRI for further analysis is an effective choice so that they can follow the development of a treatment plan. But beyond any treatment for healing, for neurodegenerative diseases the most important step is prevention. A significant number of people are at increased risk of developing Alzheimer's as a result of their daily lifestyle, and many adults are beginning to struggle with cognitive decline after reaching middle age. That is why it is very important that the approach to neurodegenerative diseases is made at an early age by analyzing our lifestyle and finding the most effective ways in which we can improve mental balance and physical well-being.
