Scientists have figured out how to reverse the brain lesions that cause dementia and Alzheimer’s in men…
Use the Kraepelin method to stop amyloid plaques from forming in the brain
I’ve discovered a toxic chemical that seeps into the bloodstream and into the brain…
…forming amyloid plaques that cause Alzheimer’s and dementia.
But I’ve also discovered a solution — a natural way to stop these plaques from forming in the first place.
I call it the Kraepelin method, named after Emil Kraepelin, the “godfather” of Alzheimer’s disease.
And not only does this method prevent amyloid plaques from forming…
…it also breaks down the plaques that have been in your brain for years.
And this will decrease your odds of ever getting Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, or any form of cognitive decline.
Discovery: destroy amyloid plaques that cause Alzheimer’s
Scientists have now reversed one of the lesions that causes Alzheimer’s.
This is a mouse study, but the implications are epic for people with a family history of age-related dementia – or people who just plan on getting older.
Medicine is changing FAST.
With scientists better able to understand causality of different diseases, they are starting to build more targeted treatments based on the disease.
When this protective mechanism backfires, dementia occurs.
There are molecules in the brain and lungs called leukotrienes.
These are inflammatory molecules.
“The researchers landed on their breakthrough after discovering that inflammatory molecules known as leukotrienes are deregulated in Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.”
Like most inflammatory substances in the body, these molecules have a protective effect in small amounts.
But when they become deregulated and start overproducing, then they end up causing a great deal of harm.
When it comes to leukotrienes and the brain – overproduction of these substances causes Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
“At the onset of dementia, leukotrienes attempt to protect nerve cells – but over the long term, they cause damage…”
Blocking the leukotrienes – could it reverse dementia?
When scientists found out exactly how the leukotrienes were causing damage to the brain, they decided to see if blocking the production of these molecules in the body could reverse the damage that dementia or Alzheimer’s had already caused.
“Having discovered this, we wanted to know whether blocking leukotrienes could reverse the damage, whether we could do something to fix memory and learning impairments in mice having already abundant tau pathology.”
They administered the treatment zileuton to mice that had dementia.
This treatment inhibits the formation of leukotrienes – the substances that cause brain inflammation.
“When the animals were 12 months old, the equivalent of age 60 in humans, they were treated with zileuton, a drug that inhibits leukotriene formation by blocking the 5-lipoxygenase enzyme.”
This is completely amazing!
When this treatment was administered, it SHUT down the inflammatory processes in the brain.
And that allowed the damage that causes dementia to be reversed!
Reversal is a really big deal.
“Inflammation was completely gone from tau mice treated with the treatment… The therapy shut down inflammatory processes in the brain, allowing the tau damage to be reversed.”
It worked even when dementia was already established.
Most pharmaceuticals on the market today work to control symptoms and diseases.
They do very little to treat the underlying cause of a disease.
This treatment with zileuton is different because it actually reverses the cause of dementia – at least in cases where the leukotrienes are causing inflammation.
“We show that we can intervene after disease is established and pharmacologically rescue mice that have tau-induced memory deficits…”
And even more amazing – zileuton is already on the market as an FDA-controlled treatment. It’s used to treat asthma.
That means that human trials for this treatment could start very soon.
“The study is especially exciting because zileuton is already approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of asthma.”
Preventing inflammation in the first place.
Sometimes I feel like all I ever do is talk about inflammation.
But it really is at the core of nearly every chronic illness that humans face.
From diabetes, to high blood pressure, to dementia – when you dig long enough it’s all caused by inflammation.
That means that in order to live a long, healthy life preventing inflammation is key.
There are a bunch of ways to do this. There are two ways that I like the best to prevent inflammation – that aren’t sexy, but they work.
Eat lots of ripe fruit.
Fruit is incredibly protective in a variety of ways. And eating ripe fruit can help to keep internal inflammation at bay.
You don’t have to hit the gym every day, but it’s important to keep moving. I like to build movement into my lifestyle as much as possible.
Jodi and I take walks to the grocery store. I pace when I’m on the phone. And I stand sometimes when I’m at my desk.
The bottom line…
This is an exciting breakthrough. But even the best treatments can have significant side effects.
So it’s worth it to do what you can to prevent the inflammation that causes chronic disease in the first place.
—-Important Message About Banishing Chronic Inflammation—-
Cytokines make a man impotent
There are inflammatory cytokines making the male penis lifeless.
This study was done on overweight men — but it applies to EVERY man. We are suffering from inflammation inside our bodies — and the result is a lifeless member and inability to perform.
And to fix impotence, you need to reduce these inflammatory cytokines.
Doing so will increase male androgens such as DHT and testosterone at the same time, which only helps “rockiness” and performance.
