A Nutritional Approach to Alzheimer's Disease

  • Dipublikasikan tanggal 18 Okt 2011
  • A presentation by Steve Blake, Sc.D..
    Alzheimer's disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States. Care for its victims costs more than the expense of heart disease and cancer combined. This class and slide show is based on the latest scientific research from leading journals worldwide. Find out which two nutrients are crucial for lowering the buildup of amyloid plaques. You will learn how to lower your risk by increasing your intake of antioxidant fruits, vegetables, and seeds. Lowering saturated fats in the diet can result in better blood flow to the brain. See studies that show which supplements and medical plants have been shown to be effective in reducing the risk and progression of this common dementia. Dr. Blake has just returned from presenting this information about Alzheimer's disease to teaching hospitals on the East Coast.
    Steve Blake has a doctorate in holistic health and a doctorate in naturopathic medicine. His area of interest is nutritional biochemistry. He offers classes at the University of Hawaii VITEC program. Dr. Blake is the author of the 2008 McGraw Hill college textbook Vitamins and Minerals Demystified. He has just completed writing Understanding Dietary Fats and Oils: A Scientific Guide to their Health Effects. He is also the author of Healing Medicine. He has a huge database on medicinal plant use around the world. Dr. Blake programmed the Diet Doctor 2011, software for graphing dietary nutrients. He is often heard on radio and seen on television

    Excellent advice in the presentation. The food we eat has been causing our epidemic of Alzheimer's Disease.
    Liked the SAMe picture to help us remember the info.

    EXERCISE EXERISE EXERCISE, exercising generates new capillaries or neural pathways to carry the nutrients to the stem cell layers of the brain to regenerate new neurons, which helps prevents Alzhiemer's.

    It is important to drink water. Water thin the blood and helps the capillaries expand to carry nutrients and oxygen to the brain cellular stem cells layers. This transport system is necessary for the process of neurogenesis, or the regeneration of new neurons.
    See TAP-A- CISE, The tapping Solution to Preventing Alzheimer's Disease
    to help understand this process.

    My Dad was a vegetarian the last 30 years of his life too. He was in excellent PHYSICAL shape and he did not have high levels of cholesterol. This heightens my tendency to believe that Dick Gregory is right about Alzheimer's being caused by dehydration. Truth IS Simple. I'm on Gregory's side at this point.

    Dick Gregory, famous civil rights activist, comedian, and author of 5 books is revered for his wisdom and knowledge. He believes that Alhzeimer patients are dehydrated because they FORGET the FEELING of THIRST. Therefore they are dehydrated. Like that picture of shriveled brain shown here.
    I believe that truth is simple and wouldn't it be something to find out that this is the REAL reason for Alzheimer's Disease? My Dad drank coffee all day and milk with supper. NO WATER. Makes sense to me.

    My Dad ate well and took supplements too. He passed in 2006. Alzheimer's is a terrible disease that takes away the one we "knew." It doesn't discriminate.
    Dick Gregory is a civil rights activist, comedian, author of 5 books (one deals with nutrition), and at 80+ he is revered for his knowledge/wisdom. He believes that victims are dehydrated. Did you see how the brain shrunk? My Dad drank a lot of coffee and milk. Little/no water. Wondering if your Father drank much water? Just thinking.

    my mom has this despite years of vitamins, minerals, & home cooking health. animal fat, dairy, pesticides, turpentines, & stress aggravated by high cholesterol, supposedly genetic. and she was always very slim... I began a plant-based lifestyle 4 months ago, & feel this is key to maintaining health.

    I've worked with patients with this devastating disease, this is just fantastic information! I take on board that nuts are calorie and fat dense but just a few nuts can provide a good amount of nutrients. Shame on the authorities that are not looking into the nutritional aspect of this disease.....

    THC, CBD, cannabinoids, endocannabinoids, eicosanoids, terpenes, anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatories.....

    All these things in cannabis plants (hemp seeds, resin oil, juiced leaves, inhaled smoke/vapor)
    and you can't mention them?
    Ahh.. what an amazing video otherwise.

    cannabis compounds "cannabinoids" mimic endocannabinoids, which are also called "eicosanoids" and are metabolites of "essential omega acids" of which hemp seed contains a perfect/comple/ideal ratio for human consumption.

    nuts do contribute to weight gain when eaten in excess. they are calorically dense. I truly admire Dr. Greger, but I'll stick with the advice of reknowned Cardiac surgeon, Dr. Essylstyn, Dr. John McDougall and Jeff Novick. Excess calories promote weight gain. Nuts are calorically dense. Peanut butter is 180 calories per serving. People with excess weight must cut calories to lose weight. With due respect Mr. Blake appears to have a higher BMI than the above.

    Just noticed something I missed the first time. ( I didn't click dislike though. I still give this a thumbs up!) Steve says that Dr. McDougall's plan is deficient in vitamin C. When Dr. Harris of VSH analyzed the nutritional values of my eating plan I came in at over 100% of each and every vitamin and mineral he entered. INCLUDING Vitamin C! For the past 3 years I have been 100% on the McDougall plan. Nuts are calorically dense and seem to cause excess weight on their proponents

      . I eat about 2-3 ozsof nuts/seeds per day, and that does not cause extra weight. I am slim and exercise a lot. So it depends on activity level and, I suppose, genetics/metabolism. Also not all of the fat in nuts/seeds is absorbed. The issue I have with McDougall's view on nuts/seeds is that he only sees overweight unhealthy people, apparently,
