  1. Dementia can be prevented and reversed

    How to stop and even reverse dementia

    Happy New Year!

    I hope 2017 delivered everything you wanted -- even if that winning lottery ticket hasn't quite found its way into your pocket yet.

    And I hope 2018 is even better (and maybe that lottery ticket will turn up after all).

    Most of all, though, my hope is for hope... and that you never lose it, even in the face of today's biggest health problems.

    But the mainstream is trying to rob you of that hope, especially when it comes to dementia.

    It's out with a new study that claims there's absolutely nothing you can do about this disease.

    The new report claims to have looked at... well... just about everything: drugs, exercise, brain-training games, natural supplements, and more.

    And it claims that none of them will do you a lick of good.

    They won't prevent the disease... won't slow the advance... and won't stop the damage.

    Well, friend, the mainstream is right about one part of it: Drugs can't prevent or reverse dementia.

    But it's wrong about the rest.

    There IS hope -- because there are safe and effective ways to prevent dementia from striking and stop the condition cold if you have it.

    You just won't hear about these all-natural approaches from mainstream medicine!

    One of the biggest "secret" causes of brain diseases including dementia -- ESPECIALLY dementia -- is exposure to toxic metals.

    These metals are hidden in your food, water, and cosmetics. You might even be inhaling some of them right now, depending on where you live.

    Once they're inside your body, they don't leave.

    They move right up to the brain, where they can wreck the joint and cause the very same damage we see in patients with cognitive problems like dementia.

    The mainstream will tell you that's where hope dies.

    Once you suffer from that damage in the brain, it's too late for treatment, as the new study tries to claim.

    But this is where there IS still hope -- because you can prevent the damage from striking in the first place, slow it down if it happens, and stop it completely even if memory loss is already kicking in.

    And if those metals are involved, the answer is often in natural detoxifying chelation therapies.

    This isn't the only potential cause of dementia. There are dozens of threats to your brain lurking out there. Some cases of "dementia" can even be drug side effects.

    Whatever the cause, there is hope for nearly all of them, as a holistic medical doctor can work with you to detoxify the brain, replace lost nutrients, slow the damage, and even restore memory and cognition in some cases.

  2. Hearing loss linked to dementia

    Can you HEAR dementia coming?

    This could be one of the most important steps of all toward protecting your brain against the ravages of age and slashing your risk of dementia.

    And it's something your doctor probably won't even mention!

    Most folks don't get a hearing test unless they suspect something is wrong, but you know how that goes.

    Most folks who have hearing loss don't think ANYTHING'S wrong!

    They don't realize it, won't admit it, won't take action, don't get tested, and never get help.

    Now, new research shows how this form of ignorance definitely isn't bliss, revealing a link between hearing loss and cognitive struggles up to and including dementia.

    The new analysis looked at 36 other studies conducted around the world and at first -- surprise! -- didn't find much of a link.

    But once they weeded out the weaker studies and focused just on the highest-quality research, the link came in loud and clear.

    Overall, folks with hearing loss face a 22 percent higher risk of any form of cognitive problems.

    Even worse, that same hearing loss will increase your risk of dementia by 28 percent.

    That means millions of people are facing these risks right now, over something that's easy enough to correct.

    Easy enough, but a second study finds that just 1 in 5 older adults have had their hearing checked within the past five years.

    That's it.

    Even people who admit they have hearing loss rarely get tested, with nearly 3 out of 4 saying that they haven't been checked out.

    That means ALL of them are at risk for dementia, as hearing loss can damage your brain in at least two ways.

    The first is pretty direct.

    When you lose hearing, the part of the brain that processes those signals and helps you interpret and understand what's being said can go silent, and that can have an effect on your overall cognition.

    The second is the inevitable result of untreated hearing loss: You miss out on social engagement, which is a major part of brain health.

    Some folks even withdraw and stop going out. They'd rather stay in than admit they have hearing problems!

    There's no reason for this.

    Hearing loss is easy to fix, and doing so will improve your lifestyle immeasurably, making everything from driving to watching TV to talking with your loved ones so much easier.

    You can even go to the movies again and not have to worry about missing out on half the dialogue.

    All you need is a hearing aid.

    The downside is that many forms of insurance don't cover hearing aids... or they will cover the exam but not the device itself.

    Shop around.

    A growing number of retailers -- including big-box retailers such as Wal-Mart and Costco -- are offering comfortable, effective, and more affordable options
