Allopregnanolone found safe, may slow brain atrophy from Alzheimer’s

A great new study, which is one of the very few to examine the safety and effectiveness of allopregnanolone in humans. The trial was conducted in patients with Alzheimer Disease (AD) and aimed to establish the safety of various doses of once-weekly allopregnanolone administration, as well as any potential benefits on brain morphology in AD … Read more

Blocking endotoxin may reverse cognitive decline of aging

Another study implicating endotoxin (LPS) and its associated receptor (TLR4) in a phenotype of aging considered “normal” by mainstream medicine, though it almost universally progresses into dementia territory with advancing age, to the point where 90%+ of people over 85 have at least moderate levels of dementia, even if not officially diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease … Read more

Alzheimer’s Severity Tied to Longer Estrogen Exposure in Women

A neat study, which somehow managed to slip through my “radar” when it was first published the middle of last (2021) year. The study is pretty straighforward in its claim that longer exposure to endogenous estrogen was associated with exacerbated/higher biomarkers of Alzheimer disease (AD), as well as lower glucose metabolism and smaller brain volume … Read more

High (extracellular) serotonin causes Alzheimer’s and depression

The utter corruption of “journalism” is once again on full display in MSM. The actual scientific study is very clear in its statements/conclusions that a decrease in the levels of serotonin transporter (5-HTT) led to accumulation of beta-amyloid and onset of depression. Lower levels of 5-HTT – the protein that deactivates serotonin – means higher … Read more

Infrared/red light applied to the skull can treat Alzheimer’s/dementia…

…and improve cognition even in healthy people! The mechanism of action is the familiar effects of red/infrared light on stimulating mitochondrial function, and especially complex IV, while also decreasing chronic inflammation. The regimen was light exposure for 6min, twice a day, for 4 weeks. Even a single 100W red bulb should be enough to replicate … Read more

Damaged mitochondria may cause 90%+ of Parkinson Disease (PD) cases

More evidence that yet another “incurable” condition is little more than energy deficit (due to mitochondrial dysfunction) in disguise. In this case the mitochondrial dysfunction was caused by accumulation of mitochondrial debris inside the cell, which has been repeatedly shown by other studies (and discussed on this blog) to be due primarily to chronic stress. … Read more

Lowering estrogen prevents memory decline in menopausal females

As many of my readers know, the WHI studies were highly detrimental to the profits of the estrogen industry. Every since the results of those studies came out, the estrogen industry has been trying to undermine the findings and re-introduce estrogen HRT for women with the claims that estrogen is highly beneficial if used in … Read more

Low-dose methylene blue (MB) may stop Alzheimer Disease (AD)

Another great result for the humble dye whose only claim medical fame so far has been as treatment for malaria, and even that “designation” has largely been deprecated due to the advent of new and “improved” drugs. About a decade ago, a company in the UK started researching MB as potential treatment for AD. Their … Read more

The (in)famous condition “chemo brain” may be simply a state of low DHEA

The condition known as “chemo brain” is notorious among cancer survivors and many other patients undergoing toxic interventions with chemotherapy and may affect up to 85% of cancer patients. It amounts to severe cognitive dysfunction, memory problems, and even personality changes that result in the patient becoming completely dependent and often unable to care for … Read more
