Is this possible ? draw your own conclusions
Type I diabetes is a condition in which the insulin producing cells of the pancreas are damaged and do not produce enough or any insulin whatsoever(usually people are born this way and so it is by default called Juvenile Diabetes).
Type II diabetes is the condition where the pancreas produces sufficient insulin but the cells of the body have become insensitive to it and do not respond. This condition is usually caused by excessive sugar/starch in the diet of the victims.
Type III diabetes/alzheimers then is the condition of insulin insensitivity of the brain. That is, the insulin receptor sites on neurons are not functioning correctly and cannot adsorb glucose properly and so Alzheimer’s is a disease of the energy depletion of the brain that will ultimately result in brain death unless aggressive intervention is pursued!
Neurons, unlike every other cell, lack the ability to store energy and so any interruption in energy supply quickly results in damage. A neuron at best has on hand merely a two or three minute supply of glucose. Neurons cannot be regenerated after about the age of two, so any brain cell death is tragically not reversible.
It is widely known that the only sugar a neuron is capable of using for energy is glucose, but what is not widely known is that there are two other fuel sources that neurons can utilize without depending upon the insulin response. They are the amino acid l-glutamine, and ketones.
An excellent source of dietary ketones is coconut oil, and in fact there appear to be many claims of reversing alzheimer’s disease using coconut oil. A Doctor, Mary Newport, from Florida, is among these claimants and is currently writing a book about how this food helped her husband.
L-glutamine is an amino acid that the brain can also use for fuel and is readily available in capsule and bulk form supplements. It is brain fuel and also enhances brain function by removing ammonia(ever had foggy thinking?), and is the precursor to two key neurotransmitters.
Although neither is a cure for Alzheimer’s Disease(how do you restore damaged insulin receptor sites is still a mystery, if indeed it is even possible) they should both be able to reverse the symptoms if incorporated into the diet by supplying brain energy through another metabolic pathway. Simply maintaining a high protein diet will increase the amount of glutamine in the body.
In theory, if you were to provide the victim with adequate calories( replacing 2,000 calories of glucose) using ketones and glutamine, Alzheimer’s would halt and restoration of brain function would be fully complete to the exclusion of permanent damage already done to it. And so an early response will limit damage, the earlier the better, best yet to stop eating sugars,rice, potatoes, grain products, and eat only healthy foods before you develop Alzheimer’s?
Avoiding a diet high in both complex and simple carbohydrates will prevent type II and III diabetes. But there are also two natural substances that the consumption of which improves insulin sensitivity once the damage has already been achieved.
Both of these substances are claimed to enhance insulin sensitivity, each by 30%.
With these weapons in your arsenal you should be able to greatly mediate, reverse, or avoid deterioration.
Coconut oil to supply ketones as an alternate fuel for the brain. Supplement with l-glutamine also as another non- insulin dependant energy source. Consume some vinegar daily(or consume a serving of alcohol if the liver is functioning well), and start supplementation of R-lipoic acid to enhance the brains insulin response, and increase the adsorption of glucose by the brain.
It is interesting that it is suggested that the insulin insensitivity of the brain in Alzheimer’s is the result of brain inflammation. If this is true, and it makes complete sense, then the receptor sites are inhibited(the shape has been altered as to be non-functional) as a result of the chemical environment of inflammation, then if you remove the inflammation the function( shape/functionality) of the receptors may be restored, and the disease may be cured? Glutamine absolutely reduces brain inflammation by neutralizing ammonia. If the ammonia build up is the primary cause, then the cure may be very simple and natural.
And it does appear that there is a strong correlation between elevated ammonia levels in the victims of Alzheimer’s. One theory is suggesting that a bacteria migrated to the brain is the cause for this. In any event, the strong anti microbial action of coconut oil, combined with the ammonia neutralizing effect of glutamine seems a very promising and possible total solution.
