A forum for Healers and Seekers
If you or someone you care about is suffering from memory loss, dementia or Alzheimer's…
…then you know how cruel these diseases can be: The ever-increasing small frustrations and memory lapses. The gradual loss of cherished independence. The shocking changes in behavior. And eventually, the heartbreak of not even remembering loved ones, or how to perform basic functions like eating, going to the bathroom or getting dressed.
The emotional and physical toll it takes on the patient—as well as on the entire family—can be devastating.
That's why it's no exaggeration to say that the news of the breakthroughs I'm about to reveal could literally have a life-changing effect for you.
Because a small group of maverick physicians around the country is revolutionizing the treatment of memory loss, dementia and Alzheimer's—pioneering groundbreaking natural solutions that are simple, safe and inexpensive.
Best of all, these solutions are available and being used successfully right now. Even while most doctors still basically throw up their hands when it comes to memory loss, dementia and Alzheimer's, using words like "hopeless" and "irreversible," and prescribing drugs that are expensive, dangerous, and too often completely ineffective.
It's hard to believe, I know. That's why I'd like to tell you about a patient named Carolyn...
It started when she began to feel her memory slipping…
Carolyn's husband knew something was seriously wrong when the pastor asked the congregation to turn to a certain passage in the Bible. Her husband knew that Carolyn knew her Bible backwards and forwards. But that day, he watched in horror as she started bumbling and couldn't find her place.
He insisted they go to the doctor.
The diagnosis devastated both of them: early-stage Alzheimer's. When the doctor started talking about drugs, Carolyn asked if there was anything natural that could be done for her.
"I don't know about that," replied the doctor. "I only prescribe Aricept."
Carolyn called a friend, a nurse who works with people with Alzheimer's. The friend said that in her experience, the patients who take drugs like Aricept must keep taking higher and higher dosages—sharply increasing the risk of dangerous side effects. And ironically, some of these side effects mimic Alzheimer's symptoms, such as depression, mood changes, confusion and hallucinations.
In fact, drugs like Aricept do nothing for the underlying disease process, are not effective for everyone, and, if they do help, do so only for a limited time. One courageous Johns Hopkins geriatric physician says the only reason these drugs are so widely used is "the understandable desperation of those who care for patients with Alzheimer's disease and a relentless promotional campaign by drug companies."
Instead, Carolyn's friend told her about an amazing new supplement. She described a woman confined to a nursing home who couldn't even recognize her daughter any more. Then the daughter began giving her this supplement twice a day and three weeks later her mom was able to leave the nursing home.
She once again knew her daughter and the grandchildren. The supplement had completely turned around her quality of life.
Carolyn took the doctor's Aricept for just seven days. But on the eighth day, she instead started taking the supplement her friend had suggested. By the second week, she says, she "started feeling a huge difference."
She stopped forgetting appointments. And she started remembering little things again, such as putting on the coffee at night so it would be ready in the morning.
On her next doctor visit, he talked to her and tested her for a long time. Finally he said, "I'm just amazed. You're doing remarkably well. Usually, Aricept doesn't work this quickly." In fact, her test scores had improved by an unheard-of 150%!
Carolyn then confessed that she had stopped taking the Aricept and was taking a completely natural supplement instead.
The doctor wasn't upset at all. In fact, he told Carolyn, "I've got a lot of patients that need to be on that."
He also told her that if she was taking the Aricept, she would have had to come in periodically for lab work to see if it was damaging her liver. But that was unnecessary now. "I really think you're onto something," he told her.
Carolyn told the doctor she was so happy she "could cry happy tears."
"I'd gotten withdrawn and didn't want to do anything," Carolyn says. "Now I get up at six. I've got so much energy. I don't feel depressed. I'm doing so well and have started so many projects, now my husband is afraid I'll overdo it!
"I pride myself on being alert and clear thinking and helping people. But I'd gotten to where I couldn't make decisions. I just wasn't thinking right, and that's worse than any disease.
"Now I've got my good attitude back. I really don't think you have to lose your mind before you die."
What caused this amazing transformation in Carolyn? No magic. Just pure science…
The active ingredient in the supplement Carolyn took is called apoaequorin—a protein with a very important property: It binds itself to harmful excess calcium in your brain cells.
This protein is so important that the guy who discovered it won the Nobel Prize! The discovery was far more important than either the scientist or the Nobel committee knew at the time. This protein's calcium-binding properties may save the mental health of millions of people.
You see, our brains need a certain amount of calcium for good cell-to-cell communications. But as we age, our ability to get rid of excess calcium slows down. The brain's delicate calcium balance gets thrown out of whack, inflammation sets in and cell death skyrockets. Those inflamed and dying brain cells can trigger memory loss and even Alzheimer's.
Apoaequorin is a completely safe protein you already have in your own body. It can reverse this process. As it did for Carolyn.
In fact, a major study proved that it can keep brain cells alive longer and cut cell death by up to 50%.
In addition, a recent study confirmed that it significantly improves memory, attention and concentration. Many people see improvement in as little as a week.
You can find out more about apoaequorin from the maverick doctor who uses it, including where to find the only supplement that contains this miraculous ingredient. It's all in a book just published: AWAKENING FROM ALZHEIMER'S: How 9 Maverick Doctors are Reversing Alzheimer's, Dementia and Memory Loss.
My name is Lee Euler, president of Natural Health Insiders—a publishing company that specializes in uncovering new ways to stop and reverse today's most deadly and feared health problems.
I only wish this book had been available when my own mother suffered from dementia. Because it's filled with more than a dozen safe, simple, and inexpensive ways to stop and even reverse memory loss, dementia and Alzheimer's—from nine highly qualified physicians spearheading a quiet revolution in how we think about and treat memory problems.
Why so many remedies? Because there are many causes of memory loss, dementia and Alzheimer's. So different solutions work for different people.
The whole family was at their wit's end.
Still Independent 9 Years after Alzheimer's Diagnosis!
Joan Snow's father is now in his ninth year of Alzheimer's and still living in cheerful independence!
He mows the lawn, fixes his own coffee, and keeps track of his own pills.
While he used to get moody and depressed, he is now, according to Joan, "so loving and appreciative. He hugs and kisses me all the time. He's a sweetheart."
How is this possible, when the average Alzheimer's victim is not just incapacitated but dead within nine years?
Joan maintains her father's cherished independence with a regimen of nutrition and supplements. And you'll get complete details in Chapter 11 of AWAKENING FROM ALZHEIMER'S.
Their 88 year-old mother, a former university professor, had become increasingly confused—experiencing both memory loss as well as mental decline.
Finally, in desperation, they took her to see a new physician—a doctor with some very different ideas about treating this so-called "hopeless" condition.
He simply changed some of the foods she was eating and put her on some nutritional supplements.
After three months, the family reported to the doctor:
"She has turned around dramatically and is now sharp as a tack. WE GOT MOM BACK!"
Time and time again in reading reports and talking to caregivers about the remedies in this book, we were struck by the number of times we heard variations of this phrase, from "We got mom back!" to "Dad is his old self again."
Of course, the doctor who brought their mom back was no ordinary doctor. He's one of the nine maverick physicians you'll meet in our new book AWAKENING FROM ALZHEIMER'S.
This doctor uses foods and nutrition to prevent and reverse memory-related problems. And on page 60, you'll find out exactly what he did that reversed this woman's severe and frightening memory loss and mental decline.
Frankly, it angers me that these remedies have, for the most part, been ignored or dismissed by the vast majority of mainstream medical authorities. But what can you expect when treating and caring for Alzheimer's patients is a $24.6 billion-a-year business—and many of these natural remedies cost a fraction of even the least expensive Alzheimer's drugs?
Another obstacle to their acceptance is that physicians today don't have time to investigate new natural solutions (although AWAKENING FROM ALZHEIMER'S will make that a lot easier!) or determine which one might be appropriate for a given patient. They barely have time to write the standard prescription and move on to the next patient.
But thanks to our handful of maverick physicians, the healing nevertheless goes on…
At 72, Jimmy was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.
Daughter Wins Her Mom Back
Helen decided to try one of the supplements in AWAKENING FROM ALZHEIMER'S on her mother, whose Alzheimer's was making her "confused and hostile."
It took a while to find the right dosage. But once she did, her mother's memory came back, her appetite increased, and she started engaging in conversations again.
And her mother has continued to get better—every step of the way.
Finding the right dosage for the patient is critical and often takes some trial and error. That's why, on page 66, you'll find not only the name of this supplement, but the exact dosages that were used to reverse Helen's Alzheimer's, as the recommended starting dose.
He was putting sugar in the refrigerator and suffering mood swings. He completely "blanked out" every now and then.
"If Jimmy went to the shed," says his wife, "he may have forgotten what he was about to do."
Today, Jimmy is a different man. He has regained his confidence. He runs a trout fishery and is an enthusiastic handyman. And now when he goes to the shed for something, his wife says he remembers why.
What did Jimmy do to begin to reverse this "irreversible" disease?
He took a harmless, inexpensive powder first formulated more than 100 years ago.
A professor who headed a study of this powder was shocked by its effects on the study's participants. He declared:
"We appear to be bringing the worst affected parts of the brain back to life. This is the most significant development in the treatment of Alzheimer's since Alois Alzheimer discovered it in 1907."
This miraculous powder appears to work by stimulating the mitochondria, which are like biological super-batteries that power every cell in your body.
Because your brain is loaded with these mitochondria, their proper functioning is essential for treating and preventing age-related disorders like Alzheimer's.
After four years on Aricept, Nita's beloved husband Bill was rapidly sliding downhill into advanced Alzheimer's.
He couldn't dress himself and had no idea where the bathroom or kitchen was. Helpless as a child, he could barely speak, wouldn't get out of bed, and was becoming more and more aggressive and hard to handle.
The doctor told Nita to send him to a nursing home and prepare for the worst.
That's when she stumbled on a little-known fatty acid some people use to sharpen their memories. In fact, one doctor calls it "by far the best of all drugs and nutritional supplements we have ever tested for retarding Age Associated Memory Impairment."
Astonishingly, the improvements began after just 30 days…
Bill's mental functioning, strength and liveliness returned. He began cutting the lawn again with a power mower—something he couldn't do for the past ten years! Now he's functioning with complete independence. He's not only feeding himself—he's cooking for himself!
When Nita took Bill for his annual exam, the doctor's jaw dropped. "His recovery is nothing short of a miracle," said the doctor.
This fatty acid is a substance your body makes for itself. But unfortunately, your body produces less and less as you age. And without enough of it, brain cell membranes get rigid, neural communications falter, and your brain cells don't get enough fuel. The result: Confusion, brain fog, memory loss, depression, mental decline.
But with enough of it, confusion lifts, brain fog clears, memory returns, depression gives way to happiness, and mental decline reverses.
No wonder this supplement has been proven in 16 clinical trials to reverse age-related decline (by up to 14 years!)—and even helps you beat back the blues as well!
For the name of this amazing supplement and exact dosages, see page 65 of AWAKENING FROM ALZHEIMER'S.
Before I tell you about more ways to slow, stop and reverse memory loss, dementia and Alzheimer's, I want to tell you something I found pretty shocking, to say the least…
Some people who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's don't actually have it! One of our doctors tells us that the number of misdiagnoses could be more than half of all cases.
How does he know?
It seems that some researchers decided to take a good look at the brains of hundreds of people who died after having been diagnosed with Alzheimer's.
They were shocked to find that fully one half of them did not have the tell-tale plaque tangles that are the hallmark of the disease.
The problem is that Alzheimer's is a notoriously difficult disease to diagnose accurately—especially in its early stages. (That's why it's sometimes called "the great masquerader.")
That's why you'll want to see page 84 of AWAKENING FROM ALZHEIMER'S, where you'll find a list of common problems that can lead to a misdiagnosis of Alzheimer's. For example, I was shocked to find that certain hormone imbalances—and even something as simple as not drinking enough water—can actually trigger memory loss and lead to a wrong diagnosis of Alzheimer's!
Because it's so important that you find the right doctor and get the right tests and the right diagnosis,
If you've done any research at all about natural remedies for Alzheimer's, you may have heard about the wonders of coconut oil.
The coconut oil cure isn't always as simple as just running to the health food store and picking up a jar. But when it works, the results can be amazing.
At age 56, Steve could no longer function and simply wandered aimlessly around the house, sometimes with just one shoe, often without even recognizing his own family. He couldn't remember the season, the month or the day of the week.
His MRI showed severe damage to his brain's hippocampus and his frontal and parietal lobes. And he tested positive for the genetic marker of Alzheimer's.
Heartbroken, Mary wrote: "It has been a nightmare to watch his decline. Every night, we hold each other, and I wonder how many more times we will get to do this."
But Mary refused to give up. She put her medical research skills to work and found that MCT oil—which is found in coconut oil—improves memory in Alzheimer's patients.
She bought a jar of coconut oil and, one morning, secretly added two teaspoons to Steve's oatmeal. Then, in her own words, she "prayed harder than I'd ever prayed in my life."
After breakfast, she drove Steve to a checkup where he took the same mental status test he had taken the day before. Amazingly, he scored 28% higher! (And this was after just a single morning of two teaspoons of the oil!) "It was like the oil kicked in and he could think clearly again," Mary says. "We were ecstatic."
He continued to improve a bit more every day. By day five, his natural good humor returned and he could feel "the fog lift." Today he jogs daily, volunteers at the local hospital, mows the lawn and takes care of chores around the house. His tremor has vanished. He reads articles in Scientific American. And he loves spending time with his family.
And every day he takes a mixture of coconut oil and pure MCT oil.
What makes MCT (medium-chain triglycerides) oil so effective?
Brains afflicted with Alzheimer's have trouble utilizing glucose. Neurons become starved for fuel and start to die. MCT oil rescues them by enabling the liver to create an alternate high-energy brain fuel called ketones. And since a well-fed brain is a happy and well-functioning brain, miracles can begin to happen.
On page 16 of AWAKENING FROM ALZHEIMER'S, you'll find:
Back to Doing the N.Y. Times Crossword Puzzle
Joe was a typical high-functioning New Yorker... but he was losing it. He couldn't focus—and what really shook him up was that he couldn't do The New York Times crossword puzzle anymore.
The diagnosis: Alzheimer's.
His wife brought him to a doctor whose nutritional approach is featured in AWAKENING FROM ALZHEIMER'S.
Now he comes bouncing into his appointments and his wife says he's back to his old self. And yes, he's doing the crossword puzzle again.
"Don't give up," advises this doctor, who you'll read about on page 33. "Decline is not inevitable, even with an Alzheimer's diagnosis."
By the way, there's something I want you to do before you try any of the remedies in AWAKENING FROM ALZHEIMER'S.
Because according to one of our doctors, one of the country's foremost practitioners of complementary medicine, this one easy step is the quickest and easiest way to improve an Alzheimer's patient.
And it is simply this: Work with a physician to get the patient off the three common medications on page 40 of AWAKENING FROM ALZHEIMER'S. Because each of these drugs has been shown to have a decidedly negative effect on the mental functioning of Alzheimer's patients.
In fact, this renowned doctor told me he's seen many of his Alzheimer's patients positively "light up" just by stopping these drugs.
Surely something so simple and easy—and which could even save you a small fortune in prescription expenses—is worth a try.
Coleen's father was 64 when the memory and other problems started.
Diagnosed with a very aggressive form of Alzheimer's, he quickly slipped into a vegetative state. He didn't know anyone, couldn't feed himself, couldn't even talk.
A friend gave Coleen a bottle of a little-known tropical juice reported to have some remarkable restorative powers for Alzheimer's patients. With nothing to lose, she gave him some for a few days.
By the fifth day, he called his son by name. Then Coleen's mom called her and said:
"You've got to come see this! It's like he came back to life!"
Coleen's father had begun feeding himself again. Soon he was walking, talking, eating on his own, laughing and busy getting reacquainted with family and friends.
Seniors rave that the juice of this strange-looking fruit has brought their memories back. One doctor says it may be the world’s most powerful anti-inflammatory.
Scientists who studied it declared this juice "the most powerful anti-inflammatory discovered in decades." It works by restoring liver function, breaking down insulin resistance, and reversing chronic cell inflammation. Every one of these benefits is super-important for treating and preventing Alzheimer's. But put them all together in one juice and you may well have an excellent Alzheimer's tonic!
Now there's something I hesitate to tell you, lest you think this juice is some kind of unbelievable cure-all. But we're getting reports that it's reversing many other health problems as well—including migraines, asthma, sinus infection, back pain and susceptibility to colds and flu.
In talking to the doctors and researchers, we began to realize that there really are certain things that seem to trigger Alzheimer's and dementia.
And if you avoid them, you can cut your risk of either one dramatically. I'm talking about cutting it in half and maybe even in half yet again!
I want to tell you about one of them because it's something you can do right now that will cut your risk of Alzheimer's by more than half: Get your eyes checked and make sure any vision problems are corrected.
This may sound strange but it's a fact: Seniors with poor vision who visit an ophthalmologist at least once are 64 percent less likely to develop dementia, according to a university study. But if you have poor vision and you don't get a doctor's help, your risk of Alzheimer's skyrockets more than ten times over! It's true—your danger of contracting this dreaded disease goes up ten times if you neglect your vision!
If you're like me and you're determined to never suffer the ravages of Alzheimer's or any type of dementia or memory loss, here's some terrific news…
Most of the remedies featured in AWAKENING FROM ALZHEIMER'S can do more than slow, stop and reverse memory loss, dementia and Alzheimer's. They can also prevent these problems in the first place. And they can make a good, healthy brain even better.
For example, on page 37, you'll read about a woman who won a Nobel Prize for discovering a substance that stimulates the growth of brain cells. It's necessary for anyone who wants to have proper brain function. And it's absolutely critical that Alzheimer's patients get enough of it.
She still takes a daily dose of her "fountain of mental youth" discovery. Perhaps that's why her mind is still sharp at age 102, and she still goes to the lab every single day.
On page 37, you'll find out about the mushroom that contains this amazing substance. The Chinese have known about it for centuries. In fact, its properties are so powerful that it was once strictly reserved only for the Emperor.
But that’s not all. You’ll also discover:
Alzheimer's and Parkinson's each strike half a million people every year.
And these diseases may have more in common than most people—even medical professionals—realize.
The only difference seems to be that they work in reverse. Alzheimer's eats away first at mental abilities, then moves on to the physical ones. Parkinson's robs you of physical abilities first, then goes after your mental skills.
What's more, the symptoms of both can be remarkably similar. Certain proteins, which are characteristic of Parkinson's disease, also play an important role in Alzheimer's. And a groundbreaking study in The Archives of Neurology found that adults with Parkinson's symptoms are up to eight times more likely to develop Alzheimer's.
So it's not surprising that fully five of the treatments in AWAKENING FROM ALZHEIMER'S also give new hope to those suffering from Parkinson's disease.
On page 18, for example, you'll find that in a study done on Parkinson's patients by Columbia University, one of the treatments in the book—one of the simplest and least expensive, in fact—improved every participant's ability to walk, and it reduced tremors and stiffness by an average of 43%.
In addition, while researching this book, we uncovered something truly extraordinary…
It's a treatment that cutting-edge doctors are finding transforms the quality of life for their Parkinson's patients. (I've seen some before-and-after videos of patients who have received this all-natural treatment, and frankly I was shocked by what I saw.)
The treatment uses a super-powerful antioxidant delivered in a special way that makes it many times more powerful.
We decided this information was so important, we're including it as a third FREE bonus: How to Beat Parkinson's Disease. Because with one-and-a-half million people with Parkinson's in the United States, you may well know of someone with this terrible disease who could be helped.
Our hope—our mission—is to make a difference in the lives of as many people as possible who suffer from both of these awful diseases.
AWAKENING FROM ALZHEIMER'S belongs on your bookshelf—or, better still, at your fingertips—if:
I'd love to tell you more about everything we learned from these nine amazing doctors (and all the researchers, caregivers and patients we've talked to) and especially about all the memory-revitalizing, dementia-beating, Alzheimer's-reversing remedies we uncovered.
Shocked Neurologist Acknowledges "Huge improvements"
At age 73, Erica could remember her name… but almost nothing else.
Under the care of one of the doctors featured in AWAKENING FROM ALZHEIMER'S, (see page 61) her improvement was gradual but steady. Her family first noticed that she was calmer and sleeping normally again. She no longer had panic attacks when she was left alone, and she was able to dress, bathe and eat on her own.
Even her neurologist had to acknowledge the reversal. On her insurance report, he noted significant memory improvement, independence in dressing, eating and light cooking, no sleep or mood issues, and no longer any progressive deterioration.
Best of all, her memory issues were now so minor that he classified them as simply normal for her age.
But with results this dramatic, you really have to see for yourself. You've got to read about the breakthrough treatments, hear about the tests and studies that prove they work, and listen to the amazing stories from people whose lives have been changed.
I know you're skeptical. I certainly was when we started this project. After seeing what dementia did to my own mother and how it destroyed her quality of life, I wondered: Can lost memory really be restored? Can a disease as deadly and tenacious as Alzheimer's really be stopped and reversed?
But now I know the truth: That the answer to these questions is a resounding "YES!" And I want you to know as well.
That's why AWAKENING FROM ALZHEIMER'S is backed by a 365-day, one-full-year guarantee.
Congratulations on reading this far. You obviously care about preserving and restoring the brain's amazing capabilities—for yourself and for those you love.
Which means you may very well be at a crossroads right now.
One path leads to resigned acceptance of the loss of memory and mental abilities that come with aging…of helplessness in the face of diseases such as dementia, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's…and of the inevitable loss of independence that comes with them.
The other path leads to real and proven ways to stop and even reverse the devastating effects of Alzheimer's, dementia and memory loss.
And any one of the breakthrough treatments in this book could change a life.
In fact, every one of the treatments in this book already HAS changed many lives.
Yours for a life full of fond memories,
Dr Darius H Umrigar MD(AM)
