Alzheimer's and Dementia
Dr. Gerald Smith
Worldwide, 50 million people are living with Alzheimer's and other dementias. Alzheimer's disease is a degenerative brain disease and the most common form of dementia. Dementia is not a specific disease.
Scientists believe the problem begins with the slow degeneration of the brain cells with two abnormal structures: plaques and tangles. It is thought that the plaques and tangles are the prime cause for damaging and killing nerve cells. The plaque is deposits of beta-amyloid, which is a protein fragment that builds up in the spaces between the nerve cells. The tangles on the other hand are twisted fibers of another protein called tau that builds up within the cells. Most experts believe both the plaque and tangles play a critical role in blocking communication among cells and disrupting the normal cell's processes.
Based on my fifty years of clinical experience the presence of the plaque and tangles are a reaction to an alteration within in the brain tissue. The potential factors that can elicit such changes can be derived from three sources: physical, chemical, and psychological. Structural distortions like a concussion, which will alter the blood flow and accumulate metabolic wastes, and initiate inflammation, scarring and degeneration.
Second, chemicals and heavy metal toxicity from root canal teeth (mercaptans, hydrogen sulfide, and thioethers), mercury fillings, arsenic laden pesticides used on chicken feed, chemtrail comtaminats (aluminum, barium, and strontium), radiation from Fukushima, Japan (March 2011), glyphosates (Monsanto's Round-Up), viruses like cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, Lyme infection, and a myriad of other environmental chemicals. Another important aspect is the fact that most peoples' membranes are inflamed from the adulterated fats in our food, especially the omega-6 fatty acids (corn, canola, safflower, sunflower, and soy). Once corrupted by the adulterated oils, the amount of oxygen entering the cell is dramatically reduced. A perfect storm in the form of Alzheimer's disease is just a matter of time. The third factor, is psychological. Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer originator of the New German Medicine, has shown that emotional traumas can form calcium deposits in the brain and ultimately form cancer anywhere in the body. The common denominator of all three groups is that they will initiate inflammation. Chronic inflammation will result in fibrosis or scaring, which in turn will cause decrease circulation, a build-up of toxic wastes, and ultimately cellular dysfunction. In my professional opinion, the plaque and tangles are a direct reaction of the body to the chronic inflammation and its sequela. Depending on where the degeneration occurs in the brain, the location will dictate the symptomatology exhibited by the patient. One recent case has provided validation of my theory.
Case Study: Alzheimer's
Patrick's wife, Lauren, is a certified conventionally trained nurse and was amazed at the progress her husband made in just three months. The medications that Patrick was prescribed were primarily to control his symptoms but there was not significant improvement. None of the physicians had any idea of what was in his brain or even thought to evaluate for possible contaminants. In additions, Lauren had to leave Patrick with his parents while she arranged a move to Sarasota, Florida. His parents were also truly amazed at their son's progress is such a short time. I believe that with further treatment using specific nutrients for brain repair and scalar energy that Patrick will gain more skills and improved speech.
