Researchers transplanted gut bacteria from older mice into young mice and noted age related chronic inflammation following the procedure. The process, dubbed inflammaging, is linked to conditions associated with older age such as stoke and dementia.
Massage, ketogenic diet, anti-inflammatory (sulfur rich foods like garlic, mushrooms, onions, greens, colored) foods and supplements, adequate sleep, sunshine or Vitamin D, less stress and a happy positive spirit will help strengthen your immune system for a healthy brain. Acidic medications/drugs make your blood acidic which can travel to the brain carrying inflammatory or toxic substances.
Under new Medicare reimbursement rules, cognitive and functional assessments and care planning for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other cognitive impairment are covered. The Alzheimer’s Association has created a toolkit for physicians with materials on assessing older adults’ functioning, the severity of their condition, neuropsychiatric symptoms, their safety at home and in outside settings, and the kind and extent of available caregiving support.
If your genes predispose you to the Alzheimer’s illness, 65 to 75 may be high-risk years.
7 million premature deaths annually linked to air pollution – 2012 In new estimates released today, WHO reports that in 2012 around 7 million people died – one in eight of total global deaths – as a result of air pollution exposure. This finding more than doubles previous estimates and confirms that air pollution isContinue reading “7 million premature deaths annually linked to air pollution – 2012”
In a newly published study, researchers at Karolinska Institutet show that the shortening of the telomeres – the caps at each end of the chromosomes in our cells – can be linked statistically to the active mechanism responsible for Alzheimer’s disease. However, the effect is small and telomere length cannot yet be used to assessContinue reading “Causal Link Between Alzheimer’s Disease and Telomere Shortening”
Vitamin D metabolism is conserved between nematodes and mammals Vitamin D prevents the age-dependent accumulation of SDS-insoluble proteins Vitamin D enhances lifespan and protein homeostasis via IRE-1, XBP-1, and SKN-1 Summary Vitamin D has multiple roles, including the regulation of bone and calcium homeostasis. Deficiency of 25-hydroxyvitamin D, the major circulating form of vitamin D,Continue reading “Vitamin D Promotes Protein Homeostasis and Longevity via the Stress Response Pathway Genes”
Mineral nanoparticles similar to those that have been associated with Alzheimer’s disease may enter the brain through the inhalation of polluted air. By Ashley P. Taylor In more than three dozen postmortem human brains, scientists have detected nanoparticles of magnetite that they suspect came from the environment. The brain produces magnetite particles that are associatedContinue reading “Environmental Magnetite in the Human Brain”

My passion is help reduce chronic care costs, health education and personalize medicine using telemedicine. This campaign will address cancer health issues, identifying root causes early, connectingContinue reading “A platform for health consumers to stop cancer early and collaborate with health care teams”
Alzheimer’s Risk Factor, formula by Connie Dello Buono , ©12Sept2016 Assumption: Female, over 60yrs of age, on western diet, lives in Northern hemisphere, have families with cancer, diabetes and dementia, prone to allergies (lack zinc), digestive disorders, high dairy and sugar consumption (low magnesium and calcium,iron) and had used some medications in the past Alzheimer’sContinue reading “Alzheimer’s Disease Risk Factor Formula”
A team of researchers from the University of Cambridge has studied data from healthy human brain tissue, revealing a signature of proteins in specific areas of the brain that could dictate vulnerability to damage in Alzheimer’s. The findings help to explain the characteristic spread of damage across the brain that is observed in the diseaseContinue reading “Weak control of inflammation by genes, linked to Alzheimer’s development”
New research suggests that the decreased ability to identify certain odors may signal early-stage Alzheimer’s disease and future cognitive decline. The test – dubbed the University of Pennsylvania Smell Identification Test – was the focus of two studies presented at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in Toronto. Both studies were funded by the National InstituteContinue reading “Smell test could identify Alzheimer’s disease”
