Men appear old when they have a forgetful mind… Here is a secret to a fast mind, incredible memory, and Alzheimer’s-proofing your brain…
Men are using the Kraepelin Method to stop Alzheimer’s disease – and you can too
Lewy bodies in the brain are sure signs of Alzheimer’s… They build up by the time we’re 40 and cause cognitive decline…
But now there’s something natural men can do to stop Lewy bodies from forming in the brain and protect themselves from Alzheimer’s…
It’s called the Kraepelin Method and it’s named after the famous scientist who discovered the true cause of Alzheimer’s disease almost 100 years ago.
The Kraepelin Method destroys the true cause of Alzheimer’s – the deadly toxin that forms Lewy bodies in the brain.
Gets rid of tau protein tangles – extends life 20+ years
I’m actually ENJOYING getting older.
I have a little wisdom.
A fantastic life with my wife.
And things that used to bother me are no big deal anymore.
But I want to share something I’m doing that is key to maintaining a mind and memory… It even makes sex a lot more pleasurable…
First, let’s take a look at one of the main causes of Alzheimer’s disease: tau protein tangles.
Alzheimer’s is associated with “tau protein tangles” in the brain
These proteins are in everyone’s brains – tau proteins.
But in Alzheimer’s patients, these proteins become tangled and start to affect memory.
“In people with Alzheimer’s disease, tau tangles tend to emerge in parts of the brain important for memory – the hippocampus and entorhinal cortex – and then spread to other brain regions. As tau tangles mushroom and more areas become affected, people increasingly struggle to think clearly.”
Not getting enough sleep can accelerate these tau tangles.
One of the causes of these tau protein tangles is a lack of good quality sleep.
Sleep seems to allow your body to scrub the excess tau proteins from your brain…
And when you burn the candle at both ends, the tau proteins build up.
“Now, studying mice and people, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have found that sleep deprivation increases levels of the key Alzheimer’s protein tau. And, in follow-up studies in the mice, the research team has shown that sleeplessness accelerates the spread through the brain of toxic clumps of tau – a harbinger of brain damage and decisive step along the path to dementia.”
Sleep disruption – not getting enough sleep or having trouble sleeping through the night – can cause tau protein tangles to increase quickly and spread fast.
This can set you up for problems with Alzheimer’s later in life.
According to this study’s senior author, David Holtzman, MD, (the Andrew B. and Gretchen P. Jones Professor and head of the Department of Neurology at Washington U. in St. Louis):
“The interesting thing about this study is that it suggests that real-life factors such as sleep might affect how fast the disease spreads through the brain… We’ve known that sleep problems and Alzheimer’s are associated in part via a different Alzheimer’s protein – amyloid beta – but this study shows that sleep disruption causes the damaging protein tau to increase rapidly and to spread over time.”
The tau tangles get worse in the areas of the brain associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
This lack of sleep not only creates more of these tangles that produce Alzheimer’s…
It also puts them in the areas of the brain that are most closely associated with Alzheimer’s.
“To study whether the spread of tau tangles is affected by sleep, the researchers seeded the hippocampi of mice with tiny clumps of tau and then kept the animals awake for long periods each day. A separate group of mice also was injected with tau tangles but was allowed to sleep whenever they liked…”
“After four weeks, tau tangles had spread further in the sleep-deprived mice than their rested counterparts. Notably, the new tangles appeared in the same areas of the brain affected in people with Alzheimer’s.”
That’s why one of the things that I always do to stay healthy longer and live a really great life well into my 100s is to make sure I’m sleeping well.
It’s a good idea to practice good “sleep hygiene.”
For most people, that means getting off of your electronics at least a few hours before bed (and yes this includes cell phones) and paying attention to things that can disrupt sleep.
For many people, this can include late-night alcohol and late-night showers.
Getting great sleep is imperative to living a long, healthy life.
Diabetic men are reversing diabetes with this simple “tweak” to their medications
My only regret is that I found this out too late to save my dad.
My father was a very successful physician. Then one day he got diabetes…
I wish I knew then what I know now.
I now know that diabetes can be reversed within a few weeks… With a simple “tweak” to your existing medication.
And then you can get the doctor to take you OFF medications completely.
One man who tried it reports, “I tried it for about 6 weeks and dropped my A1C from 8.3 to 6.8. My doctor looked at me and said what did you do? I feel so much better, I don’t have the cravings for junk food and I don’t feel as bloated.”
