  1. Three URGENT actions for any dementia diagnosis!

    The three hardest words for a doc are “I don’t know” – and you won’t believe the kinds of stunts they’ll pull rather than say it out loud.

    They’ll send you out for tests you don’t need… bring you in for followups that won’t matter… and prescribe drugs that don’t work.

    Case in point: Dementia.

    New research reveals how docs are recklessly pumping dementia patients full of dangerous meds they shouldn’t be taking.

    That not only can lead to horrific consequences, including dangerous or even deadly side effects…

    It can also mean these folks DON’T get the crucial help they need when it matters most!

    So today, allow me to step in and give you the THREE ACTIONS anyone should take when they or a loved one are diagnosed with dementia.

    How dementia patients end up on the WRONG meds

    The new study finds that a shocking three out of four dementia patients are given meds that could HURT them.

    They get antidepressants, for example, at TRIPLE the rate of the general public… and while docs might say it’s because dementia patients often show signs of depression, the reality in many cases what looks like depression is really a symptom of the Alzheimer’s.

    And the drugs WON’T help.

    These vulnerable patients are also wrongly given:

    • Painkillers including the opioids that can lead to addiction and overdose
    • Antipsychotics, which have been linked to death in dementia patients
    • Sedatives that can leave them dangerously unsteady
    • Other inappropriate meds including anti-epileptic drugs, anti-anxiety meds and more

    These drugs not only don’t help… but can make matters worse, with side effects including falls, which can lead to injury and death.

    If you have a loved one who’s been battling dementia for some time, go over their prescriptions with the doctor to ensure everything’s on the up-and-up and have anything unnecessary eliminated.

    But if you or a loved one is newly or recently diagnosed with dementia… especially in the early stages… there’s something else you can do.

    There are THREE ACTIONS you can take that just might help turn this condition around!

    ACTION 1: Don’t ADD drugs.

    Remove them!

    Many cases of cognitive decline and dementia could actually be drug side effects – so before you do anything else, talk to your doc about removing as many drugs as safely possible to see if there is improvement.

    ACTION 2: Do a diet makeover.

    Eliminate all potential sources of toxins, which means zero processed or refined foods, and nothing with chemical colors, preservatives, flavoring agents, etc. And definitely avoid gluten.

    Get as back to basics as possible and see if there’s any improvement over 4-6 weeks.

    ACTION 3: Get tested for mercury.

    As Health Revelations know, long-term exposure to mercury could be a key factor in Alzheimer’s disease – but quick and thorough detox can often lead to dramatic improvements.

    The Mercury Tri-Test from Quicksilver Scientific can give you a quick look at your levels of this brain-rotting metal. If it turns out your mercury levels are high, natural therapies including METAL-X-SYNERGY and glutathione can push some of it out… but if they’re very high, you may need more aggressive treatment.

    Work closely with a doctor who practices integrative or functional medicine for complete testing, treatment and personalized care.

  2. Get a FIVE-YEAR head start in the battle against Alzheimer’s disease

    The biggest problem with Alzheimer’s is that by the time they diagnose it… it’s often much too late to act.

    But that big challenge also means there’s an even BIGGER opportunity.

    And it’s one you can take advantage of right now – one that could:

    • STOP the disease
    • SAVE your brain
    • IMPROVE your memory
    • EXTEND your life

    The key is to be able to spot the early, early, early warning signs – the ones that won’t show up on any of the cognitive tests or other measures most doctors use.

    And then, to take action.

    Now, new research gives us a starting point. It reveals how to get a head start of at least five years and up to a FULL DECADE in the fight against Alzheimer’s.

    It starts at night. Specifically, in your bed… as you sleep.

    How the RIGHT kind of sleep can STOP dementia

    Time magazine recently did a special report looking not only at the most recent studies on sleep and Alzheimer’s, but also previewing about half a dozen under way at this very moment.

    And what they found won’t be too surprising to longtime House Calls readers!

    In fact, I’d dare to say you’ve been ahead of the curve all along – because these studies confirm the basic wisdom I’ve shared with you.

    Doctors used to believe that the sleep disorders so common in Alzheimer’s were just a symptom of the disease.

    Now, they’ve realized they got it backward.

    The Alzheimer’s in most cases ISN’T causing the sleep problems. The sleep problems are causing the Alzheimer’s!

    That means recognizing your own sleep patterns and habits… and noticing when they change… could be your first chance to act.

    Fix your sleep, stop the damage – and if you stop the damage, you just might stop the disease.

    One recent study highlighted by Time shows why sleep is so important to brain health: When you go into DEEP sleep… aka “slow wave” sleep… your brain floods itself with cerebrospinal fluid.

    Think of this as a cleansing solution.

    An actual brain wash, if you will!

    This solution comes in and clears out toxic proteins such as the beta amyloid and tau that can lead to dementia.

    But if you DON’T get enough of this critical sleep phase, you WON’T get enough of that solution rushing through, and some of those toxins remain behind.

    When it happens regularly… when it happens night after night… those toxins accumulate.

    And eventually, your once-clean brain is now overwhelmed with these toxins – and you can fall into decline and dementia.

    But TWO actions can help:

    • Get ENOUGH sleep: The more sleep you have, the more time you’ll have to cycle through ALL of the essential phases needed to restore, repair and rejuvenate your brain. If you’re falling short often, look to melatonin I like the kind that dissolves, as it kicks in faster. Most folks usually do best with between 1 to 3 mg at bedtime, sometimes more.
    • Get MORE slow-wave sleep: Studies show higher levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid can help you fall asleep quicker AND deliver more of that cleansing deep sleep. There are GABA supplements, but theanine can also raise GABA levels, often more effectively. Take 100 to 200 mg at bedtime and again if you wake up in the middle of the night.

    Here’s another tip: Avoid evening caffeine as well as alcohol before bed; both not only disrupt sleep overall, but can be especially disruptive to that essential slow-wave sleep.

    I recommend you review this with your primary doctor or an integrative or functional medicine doctor.
