Alzheimerís pre-senile is on the rise in this
country. What are the early signs? This disease must be caught
early since by the time you suddenly diagnose it, it is usually
too late for significant reversal. So what are soft signs that
the mind is going? First, short term memory starts to suffer.
You canít remember what you had for breakfast, but because you
remember the past in intimate detail, others are lulled into a
false security assuming the memory must be good if you can
remember trivia from years ago. You may stop sentences in
mid-stream, be frequently at a loss for a particular word, have
unexplained mood swings, stop learning, stop bathing, suddenly
turn on a loved one, or have blunted emotions.
One of the many nutritional factors contributing to the
pathology of Alzheimerís is excess aluminum in the brain. How
does it get there? We have laced our lives with it. Prolonged
cooking of acidic tomato sauce in an aluminum pot, aluminum cans
of food, soda and beer, factory effluents, aluminum absorbed
from under arm deodorants, aluminum in baking powder, salt (yes,
check the labels, thatís what makes it pours when it rains),
antacids and as an antiflocculant in drinking water are just a
few of the sources. Some of the highest levels are found in
patients with ulcer and stomach problems who have ingested
over-the-counter aluminum containing antacids for years.
We recommend that you eliminate the symptoms by eliminating as
many of the causes as possible from your life. Aluminum is
clearly not good for us to have in our bodies.
