Could this breakthrough treatment protect your precious memories?
When one of my patients is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, I worry about their family almost as much as I worry about them.
Alzheimer’s is a family disease – and like it or not, the ones you love suffer right along with you.
So when someone you love is diagnosed with AD, there are two emotions that hit you almost instantly: fear and hopelessness.
You’ve been told that this is a long, heartbreaking battle and that there’s nothing you can do to stop it…or bring back what is lost.
But Australian researchers may be on the verge of developing a breakthrough treatment that can eliminate Alzheimer’s plaques and even restore memories – all without the dangers of prescription drugs.
Their latest study tested the effects of sound waves from an ultrasound machine on mice that had been conditioned to develop Alzheimer’s.
After repeated ultrasound treatments, 75 percent of the mice experienced restored memory function.
Translation? This treatment reversed Alzheimer’s.
The process worked by beaming sound waves into the brain. Those waves apparently activate microglial cells, which act as the brain’s “waste removal” system.
When treated with ultrasound, these cells were able to clean out the protein deposits and amyloid plaques that cause memory loss and Alzheimer’s.
And the mice? They were able to create new memories, recall the best routes through their mazes, and even remember items to avoid.
Best of all, this treatment it doesn’t involve chemicals or drugs that leave you with harmful side effects and a depleted bank account – which is truly a breakthrough!
This treatment shows promise and may be a glimmer of hope for those suffering from Alzheimer’s (and their families), but it’s not something that’s going to be available to you anytime soon. Human clinical trials probably won’t start until next year.
But while we’re waiting for that, there are actually other natural strategies you can try to help your body naturally remove the toxic buildup in your brain that can cause Alzheimer’s.
I’ve told you before about glutathione, which is one of the healthiest and most powerful antioxidants around. This “master antioxidant” can help your body clear out waste and toxins that can accumulate in your brain and contribute to memory loss.
Glutathione is naturally produced by your liver and also found in veggies and meats – but as you get older, you’re less able to produce and absorb these substances naturally.
In my own practice, I’ve seen many patients who supplemented with glutathione improve their brain function – and you can even get it intravenously for faster results.
Could this new Alzheimer’s treatment restore memory function?
