Re: Alzheimers disease, fresh hopes? Shown on BBC2 tonight

Missed it too. Will try to catch the next one. Having known sufferers and seen its horrible impact, I am keen on hearing about treatments that can give people some relief or push the illness a few years into the future.
Seems the main focus of this programme is on Alzheimer's brought on by genetic risk factors. I would also be interested in more research and awareness on other causes of neuro-degenerative illnesses, such as pathogenic ones.

Re: Alzheimers disease, fresh hopes? Shown on BBC2 tonight

I watched it, thanks for the heads up Sbrinz.
It was mostly following a few people who genetically inherit the disease. One woman was only in her 40s. It was quite emotional, particularly if you know anyone with alzheimers. They explained how new research like scans on these people can help scientists discover the signs of alzheimers earlier. They were also showing the general stuff of how they identify alzheimers from scans and on the brain donations of alzheimer sufferers.
The programme also gave some ways of helping people cope with Alzheimers in the early stages so they can still live alone. My phone rang at the point they were talking about the benefits of deep sleep to memory function, so not sure on the info there..
Talking to patients and showing them photos regularly as well as making them write stuff down can improve memory function. One man used an egg timer to remind him food was in the oven and also got a special oven that would automatically turn off.

The new info they have looks hopeful for the future, as a big focus was on spotting the disease before it shows, but i felt sad about just how far we actually are from a cure for those already suffering.. I am no scientist but it all seems to be early stage research. A good watch though. I'd catch the repeat if you're interested.

Re: Alzheimers disease, fresh hopes? Shown on BBC2 tonight

Le microbe n'est rien le terrain est tout (Pierre Jacques Antoine Béchamp)

Maintaining a clean body is done through multiple ways but the approach and goal have so much in common. In order to have a clean body we must first understand what makes a clean body and what choices contribute towards internal cleanliness. In our mothers womb we start off as a single drop of blood and expand from there. When we are born we are typically (!) in a healthy state as our mothers body takes the damage upon itself to ensure that her single most important contribution to the world (YOU) is given the absolute very best upon arrival being an ultimate form of nurturement and sacrifice. Before the vaccinations, before the medications and before the post birth diet is given to the baby it begins with a healthy internal environment. The baby is happy loaded with minerals, the baby is comprised of about 90% water and the baby is rich in a type of natural electrical energy. If you would look at the baby's body like an aquarium than it would be like a fish tank freshly cleaned with perfectly healthy fish (cells). Fish have a similar relationship with water just as we have a relationship with the fluids inside our body. The health of the fish in a given body of water is determined by the cleanliness of the fluids in which it lives in connection with an essential alkaline pH balance in the water to support life. We as humans must learn to reaccess our thinking and reprogram our lives with positivity while functioning with a day to day protocol that holds an emphasis on pH balance, hydration and internal cleanliness.
Due to a lack of proper understanding deeply intertwined into the corporate backed financially driven mainstream health and medical platform the spark to keep us fresh and vibrant like a baby is never truly understood or broadcasted and very well could be used as a possible form of population control. Prominent figures who have stood up to this system have been beaten and their lunch money taken but not without sending a clear message. Due to this obstacle the mainstream population finds it very discouraging because they are unknowingly sucked into the matrix of unnecessary health problems that come throughout life and increase with age. What is happening is that people are following a list of health directives that are written by a team of authors and preapproved by the grim reaper. What we are dealing with is the ultimate form of brainwashing and enslavement.
We only have one option in terms of optimizing human health and preventing unnecessary health malfunctions. Given our environmental circumstances we have to turn our attention towards the conditions that have enabled the pure health of the baby and do our very best to foster and advance this environment within our own bodies. This enlightened understanding being upheld within humanity is what raises vibration and promotes an ultimate form of human advancement. This path is internal technology that unravels and enables a truly elevated form of consciousness.

Most dis-ease is caused by unbalance in the body. Unbalance occurs in a nutritional, electrical, structural, toxicological or biological equation, allowing for the transformation of matter into microforms that flourish.
We need to re-establish balance in your body by working with your body, not against it. Healing of chronic illness takes place only when and if the blood is consistently maintained at a normal, slightly alkaline pH.
It's not an understatement to say that we live in a world plague of "microforms". These include more than simple germs. Yeasts, fungi, and molds are all microforms that exist within our bodies. It's not just their presence within us, but the excretions they deposit within us. These toxic wastes are produced when microforms digest glucose, fats and proteins in our body. They steal our food, turn it to poison, and dump it inside of us.

So it's about cleaning up our fluids

Can you please stop the bullshit?!! You keep on stating that anything can be solved with this. Alzheimer has not cure yet and don´t you think that if that nonsense of yours worked, the word would have spread as the biggest invention on healing Alzheimers? Please stop making a joke of people who have suffered from this.

I have had to live through years with my mom suffering from this. Do you think that she lived so unhealthy that that was the result of it?

Before I take someone to pieces, I want to make sure that I'm doing it on a solid basis. That's why I perused the whole load of b.s. in the hope of finding at least a shred of something reasonable.

I failed.

I was just talking to my mother on the phone as I read "bullshit"...I told her and she didn't believe me!

Listen - my father has Bowel Cancer and conventional methods don't address the cause - he is 80 years and cut, poison and burn isn't the answer but he did it because the doctors are in business too!

My sisters daughter (12 years) has just had a lump cut out of her ovary.

My mother has a few symptoms doctors don't understand the cause.

In hospitals laxatives are handed out so patients don't sit in their own s.

If you don't like me then o.k. I'm only listening to bullshit like https://youtu.be/DgbdNNfotwM but for peace I will mind my own business. cheers.

Well he's still alive after all that (and if I recall from previous posts that's been going on for some years, hasn't it? ) so perhaps it's not done such a bad job, eh? How long would he have lasted without the evil scheming medical profession, I wonder?

Re: Alzheimers disease, fresh hopes? Shown on BBC2 tonight

I remember reading some research a while back that making people learn something new (e.g. play piano) improves their cognitive "well-being" overall. I think they were also referring that it can improve Alzheimer sufferers daily life, but unfortunately I cannot find the original article.

That is, in the early stages, because people with later stage Alzheimers lose muscle mass, not to mention their nervous system becomes increasingly disrupted.
Keeping mentally and physically fit is surely better than leading a sedentary lifestyle. But it won't stop the illness from progressing
Another thing I observed was increased anxiety. It seemed to me many Alzheimers patients realize something is off and understandably struggle to cope with the new health state. This is why I find it is important to provide strong social support, as a family or friends and at least give them a stable safety net, so they know they are not alone fighting this disease.

Well if it's not bullshit how come your dad's cancer hasn't gone yet?
My father is coping; he is still alive which doesn't mean much more than just that and if you ask him he wouldn't do it again!

He is trying his own methods - he didn't even stay in hospital; signed out as soon as he could.

I just believe that the answers can't be destructive...so prevention seems the obvious direction http://www.udoerasmus.com/FAQ/FAQ1_en.htm

I will leave it at this.

I don't know what is worse: to lose your mind or to still have your mind and cannot move a finger. One relative of mine is paralysed from neck to toes and it is ...devastating. I cannot even comment on anything related to these issues. But after seeing some people struggle everything else seem irrelevant.
