Alzheimer's is an increasing concern as the levels rise to epidemic rates. What causes Alzheimer's? What can done be prevent it? It has long been posited that an excess of sugar and fluctuating insulin levels may starve the brain of needed oxygen. Really anything that impedes circulation in the body is an issue and particularly the brain.
There have been theories that these issues with sugar create the changes in the brain that set the body up for Alzheimer's. It has even been called "Diabetes Type 3". Now we have more clarification about the changes and the effects of not just sugar but high fat diets. Humans have for tens of thousands of years been "starch" eaters. These foods, which includes rice, potatoes, barley and other grains have been the staples for many years. The easy access to high fat intake only has come recently with the advent of industrialization. Yes, humans are very enticed by high fat foods or simple sugar based processed treats as the body quickly reacts with a dopamine response. The body wants these foods as it surmises that it would survive when famine comes if one could consume these enticing foods, but the time of famine never comes. The weight, unfortunately, increases and now we learn that there are real cognitive effects of these actions.
The research study was done at Brock University in Ontario, Canada. It looks at the effects of fat and sugar on insulin signaling and the markers of inflammation and cellular stress. These factors have been found to be involved in the development of Alzheimer's. One group of mice were fed a high fat, high (simple) sugar diet while the control group consumed a more balanced diet, lower in fat and simple sugars (like soda pop or desserts). The researchers measured the animals' inflammation and stress levels in the hippocampus and the prefrontal cortex in the brain after 13 weeks on the different diets.
Compared to the control group, the group consuming the high fat, high sugar diet had significantly increased levels of inflammation and cellular stress. Specifically, they had higher signs of cellular stress in the hippocampus, which is where the progression of Alzheimer's takes place.
When considering the foods to include in your diet, it can be confusing when trying to figure out which foods are "high sugar". The foods to leave out would be those that have any sugar added or any high fructose corn syrup added. For this reason it is important to read the labels of all foods. Generally speaking, foods that are unprocessed are the ones that are best. This means that they did not need to be made or altered in some way in a factor. Foods that are like this that are relatively low in fat include plant-based foods such as rice, quinoa, millet, sweet potatoes, teff, barley, lentils, kidney beans, chick peas, kale and other leafy green vegetables. We now know that eating this way could help to trim the waistline, but may also preserve good brain function.
What to consider when using biofeedback for brain balancing.
When you are using the Genius for brain balancing, remember to use the following panels that are within the program:
Brain Anatomy - Include red and blue items in your Main Hold Tray. Important brain anatomy in relation to Alzheimer's is the hippocampus and the frontal lobe!
Neurotransmitters - Include red and blue items in your Main Hold Tray. An important neurotransmitter in relation to Alzheimer's is acetylcholine, dopamine and serotonin.
Brain EEG - Include red and blue items in your Main Hold Tray. Beta is good to be in balance and not too high (that is when we can't focus), Alpha is good to not be too low (as that is when we need more meditation). Delta is important to harmonize as it is an important state in the sleep process.
In the Biofield section, there is an important panel called the Nogier panel. This is an excellent one to run to be proactive in brain health. Here are a few key ones from the Nogier's to consider:
Nogier F - 73 Hz - brings coherence to the lower regions of the brain, including the thalamus and hypothalamus.
Nogier G - 146 Hz - brings coherence to the cerebral cortex of the brain (the higher functioning areas, think of the gray matter). The cortex is involved with thinking, imagining and creating.
Nogier L - 276 Hz - Excellent for balancing the left and right side of the brain. This frequency is known to be excellent for memory issues.
Also in the Biofield section, the Solfeggios can be helpful for optimizing brain function and assisting with issues that would be important to someone who wants to prevent Alzheimer's. Use these in your harmonizing as key Solfeggios for this purpose!
417 Hz - Clear the effects of traumatic experiences and the pain or cellular memory of past events. When considering causative effects of Alzheimer's, consider unresolved emotional wounds as being part of the picture.
285 Hz - Helps to return tissue to its original form. It influences energy fields and sends a message to the higher self to begin to restructure damaged tissue! It leaves the body feeling rejuvenated and energized!
If you have my original brain and Alzheimer's Panels, use these as they are very helpful to raise awareness and to assist with prevention!
Alzheimer's assessment - Acetylcholine, Autophagy, Heavy Metals, Insulin, Mercury, Microtubule destruction, Oxidative damage, Temporal lobe and virus as part of the assessment.
Alzheimer's Solutions - Bacopa, Bitter melon, DHA, Green Tea, Gymnema, Huperzine A, Resveratrol, Turmeric and Vinpocetine.
