Brain farts or something else? Telltale signs of inflammation in the brain, and 4 foods to fight it

Inflammation is known to play a role in the development of a lot of ailments and long-term health conditions — and the brain is not immune to it. Inflammation in the brain, whether acute or chronic, can cause serious health problems. Because brain inflammation is a silent killer, you must be aware of its telltale signs. You may have inflammation in the brain if you experience one or more of the following:

  • Slow mental processing or a foggy feeling in the brain;
  • Over fatigue or constantly needing caffeine to feel awake;
  • Inability to focus or a short attention span; or
  • Strong reactions to environmental allergens or toxins, such as artificial perfume, secondhand smoke, pollution, or other chemical smells. (more…)

Study: Is Canola Oil Consumption Linked to Alzheimer’s Disease?

Because of its lower cost, canola oil is ubiquitous in processed foods intended for the growing “health conscious” market. Now a recently published study is confirming the suspicions of those of us who refuse to use canola oil.

Philadelphia Pennsylvania’s Temple University conducted an animal study to determine the validity of canola oil’s health claims. Their results were published this month, December, 2017, in the journal Scientific Reports.

The study was titled “Effect of canola oil consumption on memory, synapse and neuropathology in the triple transgenic mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease.”

Dr. Russell Blaylock Warns: Don’t Get the Flu Shot — It Promotes Alzheimer’s

By Sylvia Booth Hubbard

The government is ratcheting up its efforts to convince Americans to get flu shots. “You can’t walk into a pharmacy without seeing lines, and the government is now telling preachers to tell their congregations to get flu shots,” says Dr. Russell Blaylock, renowned neurosurgeon and editor of the Blaylock Wellness Report. “I’ve never seen anything like it.

The incidence of flu across the United States is extremely low — there are virtually no outbreaks — and not a single child has died. Yet, the flu vaccine is being pushed as if it’s the greatest health advance ever discovered.

Seven Fabulous Foods to Boost Brain Function and Prevent Memory Loss

Your brain is what makes you human. It brings you pleasure, memories, solves your problems, and connects you with Mother Nature. Without memory, we require constant care from family, friends, or total strangers, and we become a burden on the people we love the most, and none of us want that to happen. You can live with a transplanted heart, liver, or other organ, but not without your brain.

And likely the most important factor that impacts whether you brain is functioning optimally, or declining and shrinking, is the food you choose to eat every day.

Do you or your loved ones find yourselves forgetting names of people you know? Where you put your keys, wallet, or glasses? Maybe not able to recall items on your to-do-list after a meeting? How about not able to remember where you parked your car? Even worse, do you have trouble concentrating when you read, so that you have to re-read a passage? If you or a family member have these symptoms, it’s concerning.

Part of the reason memory loss is so scary is that the rate of Alzheimer’s disease is increasing at alarming epidemic rates. In fact, studies show that the number of victims is predicted to increase by 200 percent in just the next 12-14 years! That means double the risk, so when you forget something, naturally your first thought may be, am I losing my memory?

Study: High Amounts of Aluminum in Brains of Alzheimer’s Patients

There have been unconfirmed suspicions that aluminum toxicity is at least a factor for dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. There seems to be no doubt that aluminum is a neurotoxin, but whether there is an aluminum link to Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, has not been fully explored just recently.

A new study, “Aluminium [British spelling] in brain tissue in familial Alzheimer’s disease” does just that. A pathological brain study of deceased individuals whose bodies were donated by family members. It was conducted in King’s College of London and Keele University of Staffordshire, UK, and published December 2016 in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology.

The association of aluminum as a neurotoxin related to several neurological disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease (AD), is often ignored or marginalized even as AD and other neurological disorders continue to rise in epidemic proportions.

This may be due to massive vested interests that use aluminum in ways that depend on its injection into the body or its inadvertent breathing in of nanoparticles.

Latest Perk for Coffee Drinkers: A Boost of Beneficial Enzymes

coffee reduce dementia riskBy Dr. Mercola

A recent study has revealed even more evidence to indicate coffee has more to offer than just a boost of energy. Caffeine offers much more, actually, as it may help protect against the development of dementia.

Researchers at Indiana University discovered that caffeine and 23 other compounds kick-start an enzyme known as nicotinamide mononucleotide adenylyl transferase 2, or NMNAT2, and it’s this compound that scientists say may block the effects of neurodegenerative disorders.

To identify substances with the potential to produce the NMNAT2 enzyme in the brain, the scientists screened over 1,280 compounds, including existing drugs, in order to identify 24 compounds that could potentially increase the enzyme’s production.

The study,1 led by Hui-Chen Lu of the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, followed research done by Lu’s team in 2016,2 which found that the NMNAT2 enzyme not only protects neurons in the brain from stress but binds to tau proteins via the “chaperone function.”

Vitamin B3 Benefits Parkinson’s Disease

Individuals with a specific type of Parkinson’s disease (PD) could gain from increasing vitamin B3 (niacin) content in their diet, say British investigators.

B3 is one of eight B vitamins. It is also known as niacin (nicotinic acid) and has 2 other forms, niacinamide (nicotinamide) and inositol hexanicotinate, which have different effects from niacin.

Nicotinamide riboside has been linked to a number of surprising and powerful benefits. Foods high in Nicotinamide include Brewer’s Yeast, Sunflower Seeds, Raw Peanuts and Beets. Interestingly Beet Juice & Yeast have been shown to have remarkable cancer killing attributes. Possibly due to the sugars in the beets causing a beneficial form of fermentation to occur with the B vitamins in the Brewer’s Yeast.

The Unrecognized Health Benefits of Vitamin B12

The B-vitamins or B-complex are commonly known as brain vitamins. They are mostly water soluble and essential, meaning the body doesn’t manufacture B-vitamins and depends on outside sources for vitamin-B nourishment. Proper vitamin-B nourishment supports the brain and central nervous system.

There are eight B-vitamins. It’s best to consume green leafy plant foods to obtain most B-vitamins from food sources. But vitamin B-12 is not one of them. It can be obtained from animal sources or supplements. As we grow older, metabolizing vitamin B-12 becomes more difficult.

Most of the B-complex vitamins are co-factors with cellular mitochondria ATP production. Mitochondria are the cells’ energy engines that also monitor DNA activity. It can’t get much more basic than that. This article will focus on vitamin B-12, a very important undervalued B-vitamin.

The Once Demonized Source of Fat That Kills Cancer and Treats Alzheimer’s

Cancer Cococnut OilCoconut oil was victimized during that era of erroneous dogma that demonized saturated fats, including butter, and created the unhealthy trans-fatty acid hydrogenated unsaturated fat industry, which included margarine. Saturated fats have been resurrected from the trash bin of forbidden foods over the past decade or so with proven health merits.

 

 

Now that the fog of junk science dogma has lifted, more and more health conscious folks are finding saturated fats, especially coconut oil, are beyond just safe. They are healthy and medicinal. Several published but unpublicized studies have been conducted and are in progress regarding palm or coconut oil’s medicinal properties.

One of the most profound studies that you probably haven’t read or heard about involves cancer. It was conducted by Australian researchers and published in the January 2014 journal Chemotherapy under “experimental chemotherapy”. It was an in vitro (test tube, petri dish) study on human colon or colorectal cancer cells.
