Alzheimer's disease

  1. The Alzheimer’s EARLY WARNING SYSTEM that could SAVE your brain

    It’s not often you get to gaze into the future – and I don’t mean as a cheap carnie trick.

    I mean an honest-to-goodness look at what could very possibly happen to you in the coming years.

    But I’ve got one for you today – your first… best… and maybe ONLY chance to:

    • SPOT the earliest warning signs of dementia
    • ACT now, while there’s still a chance to stop it

    Close to 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease right now, and none of them had this golden opportunity.

    If they did, you can bet that number would be a whole lot smaller.

    But today you’re going to have that advantage – a “crystal ball” glimpse at what you’re facing so you can stop the disease and enjoy a sharp and healthy brain well into your 70s… 80s… 90s… and beyond

    The ‘crystal ball’ that can look into your brain

    That’s what scientists are calling it… a crystal ball… except in this case, the “ball” is your own noggin.

    Normally a look inside would involve some kind of specialized equipment, like an MRI or a bonesaw. (Ouch!)

    Fortunately, the researchers have found another way.

    You just gotta take a look at how well you’re sleeping.

    It’s not as easy as simply checking out how long you’re out… but it’s not a whole lot harder, either.

    They key is in three critical factors:

    • Sleep quality
    • Sleep fragmentation
    • Slow-wave sleep (aka non-REM sleep)

    The lower your sleep quality… the more fragmented your sleep is (aka, you wake up a lot)… and the less slow-wave sleep you have… the bigger the risks you’re facing.

    In the new study, sleepers who fell short in those key portions of their nighttime rest and rejuvenation had higher levels of the BRAIN TOXINS linked to decline and dementia.

    Specifically, they had more of the beta amyloid plaques that can clog your brain and gum up the works.

    This isn’t unexpected; as I shared with you just a few weeks ago, slow-wave sleep plays a key role in your brain’s detox process. It’s when cleansing fluids rush through your brain, sweeping out everything that doesn’t belong – including beta amyloid.

    The problem, as I explained in a letter last year, is that as you get older your slow-wave levels plunge.

    Even if you think you’re sleeping “well” at night, there’s a good chance you’re not getting nearly as much slow-wave sleep as you used to, back when you were younger.

    You need more – and you can get it, too, with GABA. One study found 100 mg per day led to more sleep… better sleep… and more of that crucial slow-wave sleep needed to clear those toxins out of your brain.

  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.
