Prevention of Premature Aging of the Brain

Majid Ali, M.D.

A healthy brain breathes its oxygen freely. A brain sickens when it cannot breathes its oxygen freely. When a brain cell does not breathe its oxygen freely, it begins to ferment, produce acids and alcohols, increase its free radical activity, and thicken its innard fluids. This, simply stated is the story of premature aging of the brain.

What can individuals do to prevent premature aging of the brain?

* At the fundamental level, premature aging of the brain 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 premature aging. 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 premature aging of the brain. 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 premature aging of the brain. 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 premature aging of the brain. 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 and cause premature aging of the brain. 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 premature aging of the brain. 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.

Alzheimer’s disease is one form, albeit a devastating, of premature aging of the brain. What can this disease teach us about the rising incidence of premature aging of the brain. By 2025, the cost of treating just one brain disease, Alzheimer’s disease, in the United States is estimated to reach $1 trillion. What will be the cost of ere 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.
