Can cannabis prevent or reverse Alzheimer's?

By Fassa: (NaturalNews) You've probably read about the positive effects of coconut oil's medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) to produce ketones that energize brain cells with dysfunctional brain metabolism and even reverse Alzheimer's disease (AD).

Alzheimer's rate of occurrence has increased exponentially over the past few decades and has positioned itself near the elite disease killers of heart disease and cancer.

Scientists use ultrasound waves to eliminate Alzheimer's-related brain plaque

By Gutierrez: (NaturalNews) Scientists have successfully used ultrasound waves to break up the amyloid plaques in the brains of mice with a form of Alzheimer's disease, in a study conducted by researchers from the University of Queensland in Australia and published in the journal Science Translational Medicine.

The intervention also improved cognitive symptoms in the treated mice.

The researchers hope that the findings could eventually lead to an inexpensive treatment for human Alzheimer's disease, but many other scientists have expressed skepticism.

New study shows these common over-the-counter drugs linked to Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia

By Sinclair: (NaturalNews) A new study clearly shows common over-the-counter medications widely used for asthma, allergies, and insomnia increase the risk for dementia. The study also found that the risk may not be reversible, even after several years off of these medications.

New risk factor for Alzheimer's disease revealed: Are you getting a good night's sleep?

Extensive research over the past twenty years has repeatedly shown that Alzheimer's dementia is largely the result of a variety of lifestyle factors that promote the development of amyloid plaques and tau proteins in the brain that usher the onset of this dreaded disease. A diet high in processed carbohydrate and sugars, exposure to environmental and household pollutants and lack of physical activity have all been linked with development and progression of the disease. Now scientists have found that poor sleep patterns, as experienced by millions of aging adults, may be a powerful trigger for Alzheimer's disease.

'Dementia Village' offers natural alternative to soul-crushing nursing homes

A small village in the Netherlands just outside of Amsterdam provides a home for people with dementia, a place that doesn't confine them to a small area or force them to live in sterile hospital conditions. Residents need fewer medications and are able to live in comfortable apartments tailored to their individual style. Nicknamed "Dementia Village," this revolutionary place provides patients with a hometown, somewhere they can live out their lives like normal people. Residents can go to the grocery store or catch a movie without the risk of wandering off.

Research reveals the latest weapon against Parkinson's and Alzheimer's: Green tea

Is it possible that the simple act of drinking green tea can help protect your brain against Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease? A multitude of studies have looked into the effects that the tea has on neurological health -- and the results are promising.

Three major signs you have mercury poisoning

Heavy metals are becoming more pervasive in our food, water, and air supply to the point they are turning up in products that we have previously deemed completely safe. Mercury is one heavy metal in particular that has ended up in our physiology in a variety of ways, and as a result, is causing the slow poisoning of our bodies to the point of acute illness. Here are some of the common signs.

Discover the power of alpha lipoic acid for removing heavy metals, taming diabetes and protecting against Alzheimer's

With diabetes, cardiovascular disease and neurological disorders reaching epidemic proportions, natural remedies that combat these health concerns are in high demand. Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) can help with these pressing issues and more. This formidable antioxidant has also shown promise in curbing osteoporosis, reducing the damage caused by stroke, as well as preventing and treating Alzheimer's disease.
