A Question from A Patient Worth Sharing

Image result for alzheimer's solution

This week, a lovely patient expressed fear over getting what their father had, Alzheimer’s Disease, and asked what else can I do?  It’s a great question to ask a chiropractor, as we assess and treat the nervous system, the “master controller” housed by the spine.

Is there a supplement or medication I can take? How do I slow down or prevent this?

If there was one thing with the biggest impact, the evidence clearly indicates adopting a Plant Based Diet dramatically reduces your risk of Alzheimer’s Disease and can slow it down. Research from Neurologists  Drs. Dean and Ayesha Sherzai found that 95% of cases can be prevented and the 5% that are genetic can be slowed down.

You read that right, just because your family member has it, there is only a 5% chance you are genetically programmed to get it, as is the case for most diseases! Our environment and how we interact with it is the kicker!

Why does a plant based diet work?

Low level inflammation is like a small fire burning in our system without us knowing.  One of the most common causes is meat and sugar.Consuming primarily plant based foods combats this. Here is the Forks over Knives documentary for more convincing.

But without meat, how am I going to get my protein!?! Did you know 2011 World Strong Man, Patrik Baboumian is  vegan? 

While it may seem unreasonable for some to cut out meat all together, I encourage you to consider getting your protein  from plants like:

1. Peas 2. Spinach 3. Brocoli  4. kale 5. Quinoa 6. Lentils 7. Hemp Seeds 8. Chia

If you would like more information on this topic and the research done, please check out the book The Alzheimer Solution by  Drs. Dean and Ayesha Sherzai

Extra Facts: Did you know when you get an adjustment it creates a positive neurological effect on your brain? We are currently studying how Chiropractic may influence these chronic brain conditions and how elimination some of these irritations along the spine can impact your brain and add to your “Brains Reserve”.  More info found here
