Top Seven for Alzheimer’s Disease – Part B
Majid Ali, M.D.
In the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) , most individuals respond to a therapeutic trial of nutrients that are specially valuable for brain function. I designate this trial “Dr. Ali’s AD Nutrient Challenge Test” and conduct it for a period of six weeks. This test offers a robust nutritional and detox for improving brain function, and has three components: (1) oral supplementation; (2) intramusculuar injections; and (3) intravenous infusion The initial response guides me for follow up treatment. Not unexpectedly, the initial response is often not strong in intermediate stages of the disease, and not likely in advanced stages. There is only one way to find out whether a patient is going to respond well or not at all: by doing the Nutrient Challenge Protocol. I present full details of my AD program in a separate article.
Top Seven for Alzheimer’s Disease
Following are my guidelines (Dr. Ali’s Top Seven) for restoring oxygen signaling and oxygen’s detergent function and to nourish brain cells in order to reduce neuronal inflammation and enhance memory and mentation in the elderly:
1. Specific memory-enhancing nutrients (See below);
2. Optimal food choices (assuring optimal hydration, and insulin reduction (when necessary) with restriction of sugars and fried foods, increasing the intake of vegetables and reducing that of meats);
3. Dr. Ali’s Spicy Breakfasts (4 to 5 times a day)
4. Hydrogen peroxide soaks (for details, see http://www.peroxideclub.com);
5. Castor oil rubs (for details, see http://www.castorclub.com);
6. Limbic exercise (for details, see http://www.majidali.com); and
7. Limbic Breathing (for details, see http://www.limbicbreathing.com.
Oxygen Model of Alzheimer’s Disease
In matters of health, reporters for the corporate media nearly always act like lapdogs Joes—my term for journalistic lapdogs—not like watchdogs. Why? “Because that’s where the money is, silly,” Willy Sutton would have replied. Below, I show how well the corporate lapdogs have taken Sutton’s message to heart.
Alzheimer’s disease is caused by the death and loss of brain cells. The brain loses its cells when they are poisoned, nutrient-depleted, or oxygen-deprived. The common mechanism among all these factors is dysfunctional oxygen metabolism (dysox). This, simply stated, is my Oxygen Model of Alzheimer’s Disease, which I described at length in my book Oxygen and Aging (2000). The corporate lapdogs, as Sutton predicted, are not interested in the Oxygen Model of Alzheimer’s Disease.
The cover of the October 25 issue of Time magazine published a bold lie. It displayed the word “Alzheimer’s.” in bold letters with the following subtitle: “At last, some progress against the most stubborn disease.” I shuffled the pages to get to the main inside story and discovered a brazen lie. The title of main story was “Alzheimer’s Unlocked.” The article did not include any reference to the elements of toxic foods, toxic environments, and toxic thoughts – the three primary causes of oxygen dysfunction (dysox), brain cell loss, and Alzheiemer’s disease. Alice Park, who wrote the article for Time penned like a lapdog Joe, not like a watch dog. In more subtle ways than most Americans can imagine, she strengthened the case of corporations that sell Alzheimer’s drugs that do not work (see “Oxygen and Alzheimer’s Disease” at http://www.ethics7.org)
Not that any reader would need this. Time magazine in the same issue also carried a three-page ad entitled, “Aricept 23 mg may help slow cognitive decline more than Aricept 10 mg.” Initially, the recommended dose of the drug was five mg. Then it was increased to ten mg. None of my patients given the drug by neurologists reported good results with it. So, the drug company says we will quadruple the dose and hope you will not read about its toxic effects. It seems safe to predict that doctors will comply and lapdog Joes will snooze, too tired to do hard digging.
Lapdogs Ignore Toxicities of Foods, Pollutants, and Thoughts
On August 28, 2010, The New York Times ran a front page story entitled “Years Later, No Magic Bullet Against Alzheimer’s Disease.” Consider the following quote from the report:
“But the jury’s verdict was depressing and distressing. So far, nothing has been found to prevent or delay this devastating disease, which ceaselessly kills brain cells, eventually leaving people mute, incontinent, unable to feed themselves, unaware of who they are or who their family and friends are.”
The Time’s story was a grave public disservice. The fact is that in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease, memory loss and other aspects of deteriorating mental functions can be significantly reduced with robust nutrient and detox therapies, which I described in my book Oxygen and Aging (2000). Since I introduced my Oxygen Model of Alzheimer’s Disease , I have marshaled a large body of evidence. To cite one example, lack of oxygen in the brain triggers a gene called BACE 1. This gene is responsible for a protein –encodes for it, in genomics lingo – that converts a toxic substance called amyloid to a much more dangerous substance called beta-amyloid. This is the basis of the so-called amyloid theory of Alzheimer’s disease.
Will Promote Tests, Drugs Will Follow
On August 10, 2010, The New York Times published a long article to promote the interest of pharmaceutical companies that sell drugs that do not work. It was entitled “Spinal-Fluid Test Finds Proteins Identified With Memory Loss.” The Times lapdog might challenge me that the article was about diagnosis, not drugs. Consider this quote from the article: “You can get a test that is approved by the F.D.A., and cutting edge doctors will use it.” How? How will the cutting edge doctors use it except to push drugs that do not work. Next consider this: Five weeks later, the Times published a lengthy three paragraph correction: identifying not one, not two, but three major mistakes in its report. The Time’s correction is reproduced in full at the end of this article.
