"He, who knows how to listen, hears wisdom.
Alzheimer's disease or simply AD is an irreversible brain disease, usually in older people. There is a gradual decline in mental function and AD is the most common cause of dementia. About 5% of people over 65 are affected and 50% over 85. It can occur anytime from age 40 on. People live an average of 8 to 10 years after diagnosis but can live up to 20 years if affected at an earlier age.
Symptoms initially are memory loss and progress to losing the ability to reason and communicate. The person ultimately becomes incapacitated and needs around the clock care.
It is difficult to diagnose and often a whole battery of tests and complete physical examination is needed to eliminate a host of other conditions that could be contributing to the symptoms. Abnormalities occur in the brain in the form of Plaques and Tangles. Plaques are dense protein deposits found among the brain's nerve cells and Tangles are twisted protein fibers that appear inside nerve cells. Both are found in AD patients but why they occurred and their exact role in AD is not understood by the traditional medical community.
Traditional treatment includes medications called cholinesterase inhibitors that are taken to slow the progression. It is commonly believed there is no know cure.
Being stupid, isn't not knowing much, nor is it not wanting to know much.
Researchers have long considered that AD is linked to accumulations of aluminum in the brain. You have to remember that many years ago aluminum was not in our food supply chain and there was NO Alzheimer's. Today, we drink beverages out of aluminum cans such as soft drinks and beer. We cook at home with aluminum utensils and when we go out to eat the restaurants use aluminum pots and pans also. Many municipal water systems put alum (aluminum sulfate) in your water as part of the purification process. Aluminum is also added to many of the foods you buy, check the labels.
If you can reduce the intake of aluminum and chelate and flush out the accumulation already in your systems and brain then improvement in symptoms should surely follow. Of course, there are other metals that might have accumulated in your systems and brain that need to come out also. There may also be some restriction of blood flow in the brain due to blockages that needs to be cleared up.

Drinking Kombucha on a regular basis also may very well be the most important thing you can do to regain and maintain good health.
Kombu. . what, you might ask.
It wasn't until 1993 that Kombucha was introduced to the American public. Today, over 3,000,000 Americans drink Kombucha on a regular basis.
So what can Kombucha do for those with Alzheimer's disease?
Kombucha seems to be the biological equivalent of STP gas treatment, carburetor cleaner and radiator flush all rolled into one. It works at the cellular and molecular level pulling the toxins out. Glucuronic acid (GA) then binds toxins and other materials in the liver which are then eliminated via your urine. Toxins bound by GA cannot be reabsorbed by the intestines or the urinary system. This detoxification and flushing promotes a healthier bladder, liver and pancreas.
The liver is the largest organ in the body and it performs some of the most complex chemical tasks. One of its most important tasks is to detoxify alcohol, medications, pesticides and other pollutants that produce a stream of harmful byproducts. A healthy liver is vital to chelating and flushing aluminum and other harmful metals etc from your systems and brain. Kombucha also contains many of the vitamins essential to a healthy liver.
Good overall health is also important since an Alzheimer's patient is at further risk if on several medications at one time. Kombucha is beneficial in many areas of overall health and well being since it nourishes at the cellular level instead of targeting just one condition.
Kombucha sometimes enhances the effectiveness of other medications and it is important to keep your health provider informed so dosage can be adjusted if needed.
Kombucha by itself
doesn't cure anything.
It costs only about $5 a month since you brew the tea yourself. About 1 or 2 hours a month is needed for the brewing and cleanup. It's also simple. If you can bake a Duncan Hines cake then you too can be a Master Brewmeister.
