Part 2 of the conversation with Francisco Gonzalez-Lima. We are talking about Methylene Blue as a potential therapy for Alzheimer’s. This is something that you can access yourself with the proper research needed to obtain a pharmaceutical grade. We talk about its potential as a therapy for early intervention and prevention of Alzheimer’s.

Cognitive Benefits of Crossfit...Yes even for Cognitive Benefits of Crossfit...Yes even for "older" brains and bodies!

Evolving Past Alzheimer's

In Feb 2018 Michele Mootz started the CrossFit Wellness Program focused on bringing CrossFit to populations that were not being addressed including those with serious chronic diseases as well as aging adults over 65 including those with cognitive impairment.  We discuss the tremendous benefits they have seen to date. We also discuss the impact COVID has had on this program and the overall health of this community of individuals.

Evolving Past Alzheimer's

In this episode we talk with neurologist Suzanne Gazda MD. Dr Gazda is an authority on neurodegenerative diseases and offers more insight to balancing the "mental" vs "physical" risks in the age of coronavirus and social distancing. We focus on inflammation, auto-immune disease, Alzheimer's, and isolation.

Evolving Past Alzheimer's

This is the second part of a rich discussion between Anita Saltmarche and Dr Nate Bergman.  It features transcranial photobiomodulation (PBM), or shining LED light energy into the brain.  Anita has led numerous clinical trials and has over 17 years of experience with this technology. A good discussion about which devices, how much to use, and more information about the VieLight product

Evolving Past Alzheimer's

This is the first part of a rich discussion between Anita Saltmarche and Dr Nate Bergman.  It features, transcranial-photobiomodulation (PMB), or shining LED or low level laser light energy into the brain known. We talk about near-infrared and red light, the important wavelengths and intensities of over the counter and prescriber only devices. We specifically look at the research around the VieLight product.

As Co-Directors of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Program at Loma Linda University Medical Center, Dr. Ayesha and Dr. Dean Sherzai, through research and their extensive collective medical backgrounds, work to demystify the steps to achieving long-term brain health and the prevention of devastating diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. They are also the authors of the much acclaimed book, The Alzheimer's Solution: A Breakthrough Program to Prevent and Reverse the Symptoms of Cognitive Decline at Every Age 
 
They call their basic program NEURO which stands for, 
Nutrition Exercise Unwind (from stress) Restorative sleep Optimize cognitive and social activity. 
 
Currently TeamSherzai works at Loma University, the only recognized Blue Zone in the United States. They are currently studying how the Loma Linda community, which is largely a vegetarian-based, health-focused community has such a significantly lower number of cases of Alzheimer's. 
 
We discuss the role of "good" vs "bad" fats and an expanded scoring system to determine the best diet to avoid the risk of strokes and brain damage.  
 
The highlights from this episode we discuss:
  • omega 3 fatty acid supplements
  • tofu/soy
  • organic vs non-organic (simple key: try to know where your food comes from)
  • proton pump inhibitors (ant-acid medications)
  • statin (anti-cholesterol medications)
  • the relationship between vascular disease (blood vessel issues) PREceding Alzheimer's
  • Dose of exercise - 20-35 minutes per day. 4-5 days a week. to the point of mild breathlessness/pointing. Also, leg strength seems to correlate with brain strength.  
  • "Living a Purpose Driven Life" - Team Sherzai has found that to enhance cognitive/neuronal "connectivity" is to sustain a combination of ongoing complexity, challenge and connection to a larger purpose. Keep these in mind as we make our decisions in the 2nd half of life!
  • Experimental labs/biomarkers for brain and neurodegenerative disease (exosomes, oxidation family, VEGF)
