Remove mercury from the brain!
The best remedy able to remove mercury and other heavy metals and toxins from the brain is CHLORELLA >
Chlorella is one of the best natural remedies to prevent and reverse AD not only because it detoxifies our brains from mercury but also because, like turmeric, it can regenerate damaged brain tissue:
Since Chlorella is a powerful detoxifier and energy booster it is better to start with a smaller dose such as 1 teaspoon or 3 tablets 30 minutes before breakfast and the same amount 30 minutes before lunch with 2 glasses of water, vegetable juice or smoothie. Then gradually increase the intake every day (by approximately 1 tablet) until reaching the maximum dose of 2 or 3 heaped tablespoons or 10 – 20 tablets (500mg) 30 min before breakfast and the same amount 30 min before lunch. Altogether you can take 2-6 round tablespoons or about 20-40 tablets (500mg per tablet) of chlorella a day. The dose of course also depends on age and body weight. After three months instead of Chlorella use Spirulina or even better Clean Greens (Pukka) for a month or two and then come back to Chlorella.

Read a fascinating article on B12 >
– Chia seeds are very helpful too. Like flax seed it is regarded as the best source of Omega 3 fatty acids. Mix 1-2 tablespoons with fruit juice or plant-based milk every morning and eat it after at least 30 minutes with your breakfast.

– Take Good quality Multivitamin-mineral formula: 1-2 tablets after breakfast. Please do not buy cheap formulas as their potency is very low and they contain only short list of inorganic ingredients. It must be a good quality formula such as Earth Source (Solgar) or Healthy Mega (HealthAid) > which is an excellent multi-vitamin and mineral formula fortified with alfalfa powder, rutin, citrus bioflavonoids, bromelain, lutein, PABA, lycopene, herbs and many other super nutrients. Take 1 tablet, preferably with first meal. If your diet is very healthy and you stay away from refined foods, sugar and stimulants then take only 1/2 tablet after breakfast. Brainvit is another excellent multivitamin/nutrient formula containing most important ingredients to promote brain health and memory. Brainvit can be used together or interchangeably with Healthy Mega or Earth Source.
– Drink 3 times a day 2 or 3 glasses of distilled water > about 30 to 60 minutes before each meal or about 2 hours after. During hot days you need even more. Your urine should be transparent, if it is yellow it means you don’t drink enough water.
– Go to sleep as early as possible. Try to sleep at least seven or eight hours a day.
– Avoid eating foods rich in refined sugar and other refined carbohydrates such as white flour products (body turn white flour into blood sugar).
– Avoid ALL artificial sweeteners! Artificial sweeteners can usually be identified by many different names such as sucralose, saccharin, or aspartame (Splenda, Equal, Sweet n Low). There are almost a hundred side effects listed by the FDA, including depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, memory loss, nerve cell damage, Alzheimer’s, migraines, reproductive disorders, brain lesions, weight gain, food cravings, seizures and more.
– Avoid high glucose/fructose syrup (HFCS).
– If you tend to struggle with having a sweet tooth try to substitute the unhealthy products with fresh and dried fruits (dates, raisins, figs, prunes, etc.). If you miss traditional dairy ice creams, which are very unhealthy, make your own delicious and healthy ice creams by blending frozen bananas or other frozen fruits. You can experiment adding some raw honey (or sweeten the ice cream with xylitol or stevia), soya crème, lemon juice, plant-based milk, a little bit of carob powder, ground cashew or other nuts to improve the flavour.
– Avoid monosodium glutamate (MSG)
– Royal jelly had anti- Alzheimer’s disease properties. >
– Vitamin E, acetyl-l-carnitine and α-lipoic acid are superior to the drug donepezil (Aricept) at normalizing biomarkers associated with Alzheimer’s disease in an animal model. >
– Coenzyme Q10 reduces beta-amyloid plaque in an APP/PS1 transgenic mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease. >
– Alpha lipoic acid: 2 times a day 250-300mg. Alpha lipoic appears to be an effective neuroprotective agent in Alzheimer’s disease. >
– A large body of studies suggests that selenium may be beneficial in reducing Alzheimer’s pathology. >
– A low level of B vitamins is often noted in patients with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. >
– Switch to a well-balanced plant-based and unrefined diet.
– Increase SEROTONIN! Because of the extensive serotonergic denervation that has been observed in the AD brain and the important role played by serotonin in both, cognition and behavioural control, this neurotransmitter has become a focus of a research effort to identify new treatments for AD.
We know that serotonin is very important in improving memory, fighting depression, fatigue, or insomnia. Serotonin is the “feel good” hormone and neurotransmitter which helps us regulate moods and use good judgement. Unfortunately, the older we get the less serotonin we tend to produce. Dr. Carolyn Meltzer’s research has demonstrated that with age serotonin receptors decrease by over 50%. People who struggle with overweight, obesity, and depression, those who commit serious crime as well as people who commit suicide have very low level of this extremely important hormone.
Serotonin deficiency can be caused by sedentary lifestyle (lack of physical activity), insufficient light during the day, refined and low in nutrients diet, use of stimulants (alcohol, nicotine, coffee, tea, cola drinks, chocolate and other caffeine products), or insufficient amount of sleep.
– Exercise in the morning outside to boost serotonin!
In the beautiful book „Ministry of Healing” Ellen G. White wrote that, “The sick, shut within four walls, look out on houses and pavements, with perhaps not even a glimpse of blue sky or sunshine, of grass or flower or tree. Shut up in this way, they brood over their suffering and sorrow, and become a prey to their own sad thoughts. The pure air, the glad sunshine, the flowers and trees, and outdoor exercise amid these surroundings, are health- and life-giving. Outdoor life is the only remedy that many need. It has a wonderful power to heal diseases caused by the excitements and excesses of fashionable life, a life that weakens and destroys the powers of body, mind, and soul. How glad would they be to sit in the open air, rejoice in the sunshine, and breathe the fragrance of tree and flower! There are life-giving properties in the balsam of the pine, in the fragrance of the cedar and the fir, and other trees also have properties that are health restoring. In nature may always be found something to divert the attention of the sick from themselves and direct their thoughts to God. The beauty of nature leads them to think of the heavenly home, where there will be nothing to mar the loveliness, nothing to taint or destroy, nothing to cause disease or death.”
– Increase consumption of foods high in Tryptophan (to boost Serotonin): Cooked soy beans, Tofu, beans, lentils, ground sesame, tahini, humus, etc.
– Boost Dopamine levels!
– Take 5HTP (tryptophan supplement).
– Make sure you have some Complex carbohydrates everyday in the form of fresh and dried fruits, bananas, etc. as they increase ability of tryptophan to pass blood/brain barrier.
– Take Vitamin B6, B1, B3 (Niacin), Magnesium citrate, Zinc, Folic acid, as they are required to produce serotonin.
– Light therapy. Expose your body to sunlight whenever it is possible or use strong light imitating sunlight.
– Increase intake of Omega 3 fatty acids: Chlorella, ground flax seed, soaked in water chia seeds, good quality organic Omega 3 fish oil with antioxidant to prevent oxidation (HealthAid offers a very good quality molecularly distilled Omega 3 fish oil >).
– Magnesium (citrate or another well absorbed type): 400 to 800 mg 60 min before breakfast and 400 to 800 mg 1 to 3 hours before bed.
– If possible you can also add NAC to the above list: 2 – 3 times 200mg.
If you can’t afford all above mentioned use at least the three first ones.
– In addition, read carefully and do your best to implement all the principles and recommendations included in the HEALTH RECOVERY PLAN >
