Prevention of Alzheimer’s Disease

Majid Ali, M.D.

By 2025, the cost of treating Alzheimer’s disease in the United States is estimated to reach $1 trillion. Where will the country get this much money? What kind of care will that money buy in 2030? No clear answers to these questions are forthcoming.

What can individuals do to reduce the chance of developing Alzheimer’s disease?

* At the fundamental level, Alzheimer’s disease is caused  by oxygen deficit in the brain. So the way to prevent the disease is to “think oxygen” and use the brain to keep its cells breathing their oxygen.

* At the next level, anything that causes inflammation anywhere in the body increases the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. So the way to prevent the disease is to “think inflammation” and take steps to prevent inflammation in the body.

* At another level, nutrient deficits reduce oxygen in the brain and increase inflammation in the body and so increase the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. So the way to prevent the disease is to “think nutrients” and provide the body with the needed nutrients.

* At another level, chronic stress robs the brain of oxygen, increases acidity and free radical activity in it, and increases the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. So the way to prevent the disease is to “think personal spiritual realism” and reduce exposure to chemicals.

* At another level, physical inactivity slows blood circulation in the body, including in the brain.  So the way to prevent the disease is to “think fitness” and take long walks.

* At another level, all synthetic chemicals cause inflammation in the body and so increase the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. So the way to prevent the disease is to “think chemicals” and reduce exposure to chemicals.

* At another level, toxic metals (mercury, lead, aluminum, and others) directly injure the energy systems in the brain cells. So the way to prevent the disease is to “think toxic metals” and remove them with chelation.

* At another level, spices reduce inflammation in the body and so decrease the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. So the way to prevent the disease is to “think spices.” Please search the following words: Dr. Ali’s Spicy breakfasts.

* And read and write, sing and dance, be compassionate to others – and to yourself.

* Please consider my guidelines for brain-friendly brain nutrients.
