Diagnosed With Alzheimer's, But It Was Really Tick-Borne Illness. Trust Your Gut, And Demand This Test
Lyme disease, which comes from a tick bite, may cause a multitude of uncomfortable symptoms such as fever, headache, fatigue and a skin rash. If left untreated, and it often does because the afflicted may not realize that they were bitten by a tick or confuse their symptoms for other conditions, lyme disease can spread to the joints, heart and nervous system.
There are many health benefits of including fish in your diet. These include lowering blood pressure and possibly decreasing your risk for Alzheimer’s disease and arthritis. And recent research now suggests a link between eating fish and having a lower risk of developing vascular brain disease.
So many people have been affected by Alzheimers disease! A few of the famous ones include Charles Bronson, Sean Connery, Peter Falk, Charlton Heston, Ronald Reagan, Rosa Parks and Rita Hayworth. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia.
It has been known for quite some time that there is a strong association between diet and cognitive health. For instance, a pro-inflammatory diet rich in processed, nutrient-void foods may contribute to cognitive decline, and an anti-inflammatory diet rich in whole, nutrient-rich foods may delay cognitive decline. And now, a recent study suggests that it’s not just about what you are eating but how you are pairing certain foods together.
A recent study found evidence suggesting that consuming soybean oil may have a negative effect on the brain and influence neurological conditions such as autism, Alzheimer’s, anxiety and depression.
Like many people, your New Year’s resolution may be to exercise more. It’s great if your motivation stems from wanting to lose a few pounds and look good in your swimsuit or what have you, but I think it can be even more motivating and empowering if you are aware of what exercise may do for your health.
It’s likely that you’ve seen Dr. Oz on his TV show, or previously on The Oprah Winfrey Show where he gained popularity talking about the latest diet trends and how to stay healthy. But recently, Dr. Oz sadly announced that his 81-year-old mother has Alzheimer’s disease.
You’ve likely heard the phrase that too much of a good thing can be just as bad as not enough. And in the case of a recent study regarding serum magnesium levels, this may be evident.
It’s normal to be forgetful sometimes or have a bit of brain fog. You may have heard people refer to this as having a “senior moment.” However, in older adults, these “senior moments” may be a sign of something more threatening than just the expected memory loss that comes with older age. It could be subjective cognitive decline (SCD).
When you think about your diet, you probably think about what it does to your figure. You blame those quick French fry stops after work for your love handles, or you thank that kale and quinoa salad for the way you look in your little black dress. But while it’s true that what you eat affects your appearance, there’s something else you should know. What you eat may also affect your brain!
A patient once approached me hoping to find a new treatment for her mother who had Alzheimer’s disease. Her mom had increasing difficulty remembering what she just did or said, and communication and daily living were becoming much more difficult.
