Do you know someone who has dementia or Alzheimer's? Has one of your parents or grandparents succumbed to this tragic syndrome?
Pretty well everyone these days has been personally affected by this, with a loved one or friend suffering this fate. It seems almost like an epidemic.
For me, the terrible increase in the incidence of dementia and Alzheimer's disease over the past two decades has struck home three times now.
Both of my grandmothers died with Alzheimer's, and my mother passed away on December 29, 2019, not knowing who we were or that the cancer that ultimately killed her was the cause of her excruciating pain. We could not comfort her, we could not explain to her. She died a terrible death, not able to understand what was even happening.
Seeing how this ruthless condition destroyed my Mom's mind, and the minds of the two grandmothers who inspired me to be strong and independent has been a driving force for me. It has made me search for the cause of this malady, and it has pushed me in my mission to do everything I can to ensure I do not succumb to it.
In the process of working on my own brain health, I have made some startling discoveries, and I am anxious to share them with everyone who could in any way be affected by this dreaded syndrome.
To say I am passionate about this is definitely an understatement, because the more I learn, the more determined I become to turn this around.
I have learned that, despite the "official line" - this disease is preventable, and treatable - although not with drugs.
We have the power to protect ourselves and our loved ones from the ravages of Alzheimer's and dementia, and it is NEVER too early to start. We have the power to control our own destiny. But salvation comes not in the form of a pill. It comes with the personal decision and commitment to do the work and save our brains.
Using the information I've gleaned and protocols I've been developing over this past decade, I have improved my own memory and health in multiple ways. In the process, I've also helped dozens of others eliminate brain fog, boost their brain power and feel healthier and stronger.
I want to do the same for you.
But YOU have to do the work.
While we hear all the time about the "genetics" that cause Alzheimer's, that is not the whole story. In fact, it's only a part of the story IF you let it.
Diet, exercise, stress, sleep quality and quantity, social interaction, continuous learning and music ... these are just a few of the factors that impact your brain.
By consciously making the necessary lifestyle changes, Alzheimer's and dementia are absolutely preventable. You will get the the tools to guide you... in a step-by-step program that will give you everything you need to save your brain .... because....
Nobody....ever .... should lose their mind to Alzheimer's or any other form of dementia. It should be a rare disease.
The great news is that, looking after your brain also means improving your general health. The very same things that cause autoimmune diseases, Type 2 Diabetes, heart conditions and so much more are the same things that contribute to Alzheimer's and dementia.
The other great news is that, by eating for your brain, you are also eating for the planet.
In "Don't Let the Memories Fade", we eat a whole-foods, plant-based diet.
Because animal products cause inflammation, and inflammation is not good for our brains. PLUS - being vegan is also being kind, and I believe that, by being kind to the other sentient beings on this planet, and being mindful of how our food choices affect the planet, we can also be much healthier ourselves.
After all, how can we be truly healthy if our planet is not?-
I hear people say all the time, "I'm young, I don't have to worry about that now."
That is simply not true. The environment for developing dementia and Alzheimer's is set up 20 to 30 years before any symptoms show up.
What we eat, the kinds of cleaning products we use, the amount of time we exercise (or don't), the very water we drink - all of these contribute to the conditions that make you at risk.
That means you need to pay attention now, and start looking after your brain before problems arise.
As of 2018, Alzheimer’s disease officially ranked as the sixth leading cause of death in the United States.
But recent estimates are placing it in third place, just behind cancer and heart disease, as a cause of death for older people.
About 50 million people worldwide are suffering from dementia now, but the total number of people with dementia is projected to reach 82 million in 2030 and 152 million in 2050.
You do NOT want to be one of those statistics.
"Don't Let the Memories Fade" was released on Amazon Kindle on September 12, 2020, what would have been my Mom's 82nd birthday.
It is in her honor that all of this is being done, and it is because I don't want anybody else, ever, to die the way my Mom did, that I am so determined to help you keep your memories intact.
