You are probably familiar with traditional Alzheimer’s warning signs. www.alz.org lists these early signs and symptoms: memory loss that disrupts daily life, difficulty problem solving, planning and completing familiar tasks, confusion with places and times, losing things frequently, and experiencing changes in mood and personality.
But there are important, yet hardly known, potential precursors to Alzheimer’s.
I’ve shared with you repeatedly over the years the dangers of using anti-depressants and sleep medications. If they aren’t bad enough, there are drugs out there that attempt to combine them both and what they end up with is a chemical “Russian Roulette” cocktail.
In an article titled These Common Drugs are Giving You Alzheimer’s and published this month in The Institute for Natural Healing, a research publication, the authors talk about this new family of drugs – Benzodiazepines, or benzos – are dangerous in many ways.
Doctors are prescribing benzos in an attempt to treat anxiety, depression and insomnia in one extremely powerful little pill called Xanax, Valium, and Ativan – and not surprisingly, these little monsters are responsible for 35% of the 1.4 million prescription drug-related ER visits in one year alone.
According to the article, researchers discovered that taking these drugs for only 3 months can increase risk of developing Alzheimer’s by over 50%!
This is just astounding. And believe me when I say the drug companies aren’t going to be advertising the results of this study!
The researchers concluded that these medications should be declared a public health crisis – the longer the seniors in the study took these drugs, the greater the increased risk. The author’s of the article declared this to be a “direct threat to your health – even your life!”
These drugs are beyond dangerous, they are destructive to our brain and thinking capacity. Never take them. And if you are taking them now? Please contact our Healthy Living Support team and set up a consultation to find out how to immediately get off of these drugs safely.
And now the good news!
In this “Information Age,” the effects of stress overload the brain, wreaking havoc on our thinking ability. Mind Power is like an “Einstein-pill” that fuels the genius inside of you, allowing you to think faster, remember faster and deliver protection against the ravages of dementia and early-onset Alzheimer’s.
Research out of the University of Exeter Medical School recently discovered vitamin D3 deficiency raised the risk of dementia by 53% and severe deficiency – blood levels lower than 25 nmol/L – increased risk by 125%. And the news kept getting worse. Low vitamin D3 levels increased risk of Alzheimer’s Disease by 69% and the ones who were severely deficient, increased their chances by 122%! This study proves there is a direct link between low vitamin D3 levels and dementia/Alzheimer’s.
You need to take Ultra D3 every. single. day! Whether you are 25 or 85, it’s not too soon or too late to be giving your brain what it needs to stay healthy!
Omega 3-6-9 is a balanced blend of Omega-3 and Omega-6 Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) plus Omega-9, a non-essential, but beneficial fatty acid. Omega-3 and Omega-6 are necessary for the maintenance of your heart, nervous system and skin. Omega-9 promotes a healthy vascular system.
EFAs are vitally important for brain health, as the brain consists primarily of EFAs.
For children labeled with ADD/ADHD and elderly experiencing Alzheimer’s symptoms, try Omega 3/6/9 to supply the brain with the vital nutrients it needs.
We can’t guarantee you won’t ever get Alzheimer’s Disease, but we want you to have the best chance possible to never contract this dreaded illness.
We are on your team!
