The number of people with Alzheimer’s disease, a degenerative brain disease and the most common form of dementia, will rise by at least 14% in all 50 states over the next eight years. However, the rate of increase will be higher in some states than others, according to a recent report from the Alzheimer’s Association, placing greater financial stress on health care programs and boosting the need for caregivers.
Alaska is projected to have the biggest increase in Alzheimer’s cases, from 7,100 in 2015 to 11,000 in 2017, or a 54.9% jump. Arizona, Nevada, Vermont, and Utah round out the top five with projected increases of at least 40% each. Iowa is expected to have the lowest increase, from 64,000 to 73,000, or 14.1%.
24/7 reviewed the Alzheimer’s Association “2017 Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures” report to find for each state the projected percentage increase in the number of people with Alzheimer’s over the next eight years. States in the West and Southeast are expected to have the largest percentage increases in the number of people with Alzheimer’s between 2017 and 2025.

More info about the importance of vitamin B3:
– High Doses of Vitamins Fight Alzheimer’s Disease (Dec 9, 2008):
Researchers at the University of California at Irvine gave the human dose equivalent of 2,000 to 3,000 mg of vitamin B3 to mice with Alzheimer’s. (2) It worked. Kim Green, one of the researchers, is quoted as saying, “Cognitively, they were cured. They performed as if they’d never developed the disease.”
Researchers from the University of Sydney, Australia believe that nicotinamide (vitamin B3) can be used to prevent the incidence of melanoma, a deadly form of skin cancer. The study, published in Photodermatology, Photoimmunology, and Photomedicine, demonstrates the efficacy of vitamin B3 in reducing or even reversing DNA damage and inflammation caused by ultraviolet radiation. Authors of the review say that more research into the topic is necessary but conclude that should their data be further verified, it could lead to a cheap and potent solution to skin cancer.
The team noted that nicotinamide costs around $10 per month if taken at the recommended dosage of one gram a day. This is significantly less expensive than conventional cancer therapies, which usually include chemotherapy sessions and various forms of medications.
If you have ever heard about turmeric and its benefits and also you are considering whether should start with a cup of warm turmeric water it is time to solve the dilemma and start, because the turmeric is an anti-inflammatory, anti-aging and anti-oxidant spice.
The key of turmeric great healing properties is its compound Curcumin. More than 7000 reviewed scientific articles have proved effectiveness of its.
10 REASONS TO DRINK WARM TURMERIC WATER EVERY MORNING
1.Able to Fight against inflammation
As result of chronic inflammations there are many diseases and it was discovered that curcumin powerful anti-inflammatory properties, fights against inflammation better than some anti-inflammatory drugs.
2.Protects your brain
Researchers have been found that decreased levels of type of growth hormone, Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) often lead to dementia and Alzheimer’s. They also discovered that curcumin has very beneficial effect on level of this hormone and effectively helps in certain brain diseases or age-related brain functions.
with Vitamin C and MSM
Health authorities generally set such low limits for the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of vitamins and minerals that obvious deficiencies in most individuals are avoided but so that these nutrients do not become a threat to the pharmaceutical industry by preventing and curing diseases. In this article I like to show what can be done with higher amounts of vitamin C as pioneered by doctors Linus Pauling, Ewan Cameron, Abram Hoffer and others. The results are even better when combined with MSM (methylsulfonylmethane or dimethylsulfone) and DMSO (dimethylsulfoxide).
There are hundreds of vitamin C articles with positive results published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine (www.orthomed.org) which specializes in vitamin research. In an act of obvious bias the MEDLINE database lists all articles by medical research journals, including Time magazine and Readers’ Digest, but not the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine. Because all these highly positive studies are not indexed by Medline, proponents of drug medicine can claim that there are no studies showing that vitamin C is useful and safe in the treatment of diseases.
I’ve posted this article before.
This article mentions a high dose for strong fungal/Candida problems such as autoimmune diseases, cancer or dementia.
From the article:
“Borax, similar to the equally endangered Lugol’s iodine solution, can also be used to remove accumulated fluoride and heavy metals from the body (14). Fluoride not only causes bones to deteriorate, but also the pineal gland to calcify and the thyroid to become underactive.”

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
“If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we would have found the safest way to health.”
Bread, eggs, milk and meat contain practically NO boron!!!
Meat contains 0,04 mg boron per 100 g.
Milk contains 0,03 mg boron per 100 g.
Eggs contain 0,07 mg boron per 100 g.
Corn Salad (Valerianella Locusta) contains 27,5 – 35 mg boron per 100 g.
Quinces 8,6 -17,4 mg per 100 g.
Dandelion 8,5 -16 mg per 100 g.
Beetroot 2,1 mg per 100 g.
Lapacho contains high amounts of boron.
I see borax as a short-term cure and consider it to be of the utmost importance to rely on a healthy diet as long-term cure and prevention of any and all disease.
If you are drinking green vegetable juices (Carrots, beets, spinach, salad, cucumber etc.) and include herbs like nettles, dandelion, goatweed, chickweed, then you are bombarding the body with vital nutrients in the best and readily available form.

Short version of the article as published in Nexus Magazine (PDF): The Borax-Conspiracy
Full article translated into German (PDF): Die Borax-Verschwörung: Das Aus für die Arthrose-Heilung
For German readers: Arthritis has been wrongly translated as ‘Arthrose’.
Arthritis is Arthritis (=Gelenkentzündung) in German.
You may not be able to imagine that borax, this humble insecticide and laundry detergent, has the potential of singlehandedly bringing down our entire economic system. But you do not need to worry, the danger has been recognised and the necessary steps are already being taken to defuse the situation. I will start with the basics and you will understand what I mean as the story unfolds.
Borax is a naturally occurring mineral commonly mined from dried salt lakes, and is the source of other manufactured boron compounds. The main deposits are in California and Turkey. Chemical names are sodium tetraborate decahydrate, disodium tetraborate decahydrate, or simply sodium borate. This means it contains four atoms of boron as its central feature combined with two sodium atoms and ten molecules (or sometimes less) of crystallisation water – decahydrate means 10 water molecules, pentahydrate 5, and anhydrate or anhydrous borax means no crystallisation water; chemically it is all the same.
Borax is commonly sold as technical or agricultural grade with 99 to 99.5% minimum purity. Potential impurities consist of sodium, potassium, calcium, chloride, bicarbonate, carbonate, sulphate and phosphate but not toxic or heavy metals. This grade includes the borax commonly used as household cleaner. Pharmaceutical grade is not noticeably purer or better.
When brain tissue samples were taken from over three dozen people who had lived in the industrial cities of Manchester and Mexico City, researchers found something very peculiar, unlike anything they had studied before. The city dwellers’ brains all had something in common, something that has yet to be fully understood: The frontal cortex of their brains was polluted with magnetite nanoparticles. The brain samples were obtained from people ranging in age from 3 to 92 who had died in fatal accidents; their brains were left intact.
Breathing fine particulate matter causes inflammation in the brain
There was ample evidence that the magnetite nanoparticles were taken in through the polluted air of the city. All signs indicated that the particles had penetrated their blood-brain barriers to congregate in the tissue of the frontal cortex. These newly discovered magnetite nanoparticles were shaped differently from what naturally occurs in the brain. In the brains of Alzheimer’s patients, researchers find higher than normal amounts of magnetite particles, indicating an inflammation factor, but these particles are always angular in shape.
Using its well-funded position as the authoritative voice on Alzheimer’s, the Alzheimer’s Association has made some odd statements regarding certain factors believed to contribute to the risk of Alzheimer’s. On its website, the organization claims that known probable and potentially contributing factors behind the Alzheimer’s epidemic are simply myths. (are you kidding?!)
Many experts from the scientific and medical communities have identified factors such as toxic mercury fillings, daily exposure to aluminum, flu shots and aspartame as among the many environmental toxins known to increase the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
New findings by Dr. Alan MacDonald released today on the Dr. Paul H Duray Website (Pathology Research Fellowship)
Earlier Alan MacDonald reported in over 100 Harvard Alzheimer’s Brain Bank samples (see F1000 site) that Alzheimer’s amyloid plaques are associated with Borrelia biofilms, often with Borrelia miyamotoi a Relapsing Fever Borrelia not picked up with Lyme serology testing.
Then in 2016 Alan showed a high percentage of MS patients had Nematode parasites in their spinal Fluids. (using trichrome stain and Ethidium Bromide blue)
After seeing the nematodes in MS, Alan went back to the Alzheimer’s tissue samples and stained for Nematodes. Alan found Nematodes in Alzheimer’s brains and that the Nematodes contained Borrelia in their gut.
Then Alan showed that Nematodes shed fecal debris in Alzheimer’s brains.
Organic blueberries are perfect ‘pipe cleaners’ for blood vessels, as they are dissolving and removing plagues & deposits from the human body.
Blueberries are just one of the “superfoods” nature has blessed us with. There are so many wonderful qualities and health benefits to eating more blueberries that they are almost too numerous to count.
Besides being packed with vitamin C and antioxidants, research shows that blueberries are excellent stress relievers and can add significantly to brain health.
Gotu kola (Centella asiatica) has been used to treat many conditions for thousands of years in India, China, and Indonesia. Centella asiatica has been used as a medicine in the Ayurvedic tradition of India (for thousands of years) and is listed in the historic ‘Sushruta Samhita’, an ancient Indian medical text. In China, known as gotu kola, it is one of the reported “miracle elixirs of life” known over 2000 years ago. Its Chinese name means “fountain of youth.” Gotu kola activates the release of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a protein that acts like fertilizer for your brain encouraging new brain cell formation. It takes a few weeks for gotu kola’s effects to kick in and it seems to work by encouraging dendrite branching, increasing brain plasticity and communication between brain cells. Gotu kola also increases nerve growth factor (NGF) which stimulates the growth of new nerve cells and safeguards existing ones. It is very easy to grow and tastes quite good. For more info on gotu kola see articles down below.

The stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) is maybe the best herb for supporting the formation of blood. Nettles are also one of the best blood-purifiers, which is why they are part of my spring detox, just like dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) and ramson (Allium ursinum). I use the freshly picked nettles in my regular juices and my smoothies. In a plastic bag they stay fresh in the refrigerator for a few days, but they will lose some nutrient content and vital energy. Still way better than most, if not all, ‘food’ that you can buy in the supermarket. Stinging nettles are unmatched energy & nutrient bombs. And even kale looks like a weakling in comparison.

People around the world are noticing that our planet’s weather is dramatically changing. They are also beginning to notice the long lingering trails left behind airplanes that have lead millions to accept the reality of chemtrail/geoengineering programs. Could there be a connection between the trails and our severe weather? While there are many agendas associated with these damaging programs, evidence is now abundant which proves that geoengineering can be used to control weather. In this documentary you will learn how the aerosols being sprayed into our sky are used in conjunction with other technologies to control our weather. While geoengineers maintain that their models are only for the mitigation of global warming, it is now clear that they can be used as a way to consolidate an enormous amount of both monetary and political power into the hands of a few by the leverage that weather control gives certain corporations over the Earth’s natural systems. This of course, is being done at the expense of every living thing on the planet.
– Alzheimer’s Disease: Deadly Infectious Cause Known and Hidden – Prions (Ed Ward, MD’s Blog, June 21, 2013):
Government’s, Corporation’s and Search Engines Deadly Secret: “Alzheimer’s Disease is a Prion Disease.” http://edwardmd.wordpress.com/2013/06/21/alzheimers-disease-deadly-infectious-cause-known-and-hidden-prions-2/ Original brief article http://groups.yahoo.com/group/EdWard-MD/message/683
Alzheimer’s Disease Is a Prion Disease. A TSE, Transmissable (Transmittable) Spongiform Encephalopathy: Variants, Sub Variants of TSE Prions – Mad Cow Disease – BSE, Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy, CJD, Creutzfeldt-Jakobs Disease, Kuru, Sheep and Goat Scrapie, Cat – FSE, Elk and Deer – CWD, Chronic Wasting Disease. There are also ‘inherited’ genes that may cause a small portion of CJD, GSS and FFI. But, as will be discussed briefly later in the article, may or may not be correct. http://users.rcn.com/jkimball.ma.ultranet/BiologyPages/P/Prions.html
“Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States and is the fifth leading cause among people aged 65 years and over. People aged 85 years and over have a 5.4 times greater risk of dying from Alzheimer’s disease than people aged 75–84 years.
The age-adjusted death rate from Alzheimer’s disease increased by 39 percent from 2000 through 2010 in the United States.” There is a 400% increase expected by 2050. http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/databriefs/db116.htm
– Turmeric produces mind-blowing recovery from dementia symptoms, multiple case studies show (Natural News, June 18, 2013):
If you or a loved one suffers from Alzheimer’s Disease or some other form of dementia, there is hope and healing to be found in turmeric. Based on the recent findings of three independent case studies, turmeric, whose primary active ingredient is curcumin, has the power not only to heal both the behavior and psychological symptoms associated with dementia, but also help lead to full recovery of the disease in as little as just a few months.
– How Turmeric Reduces Oxidative Stress and Supports Your Brain and Heart (Waking Times, June 13, 2013):
Curcumin has increasingly come under the scientific spotlight in recent years, with studies investigating its potential health benefits. It has even been found to outperform pharmaceuticals in preventing disease. Curcumin is a compound found in the spice turmeric which gives it a natural pigment. It has been linked to a range of health benefits, including potential protection against prostate cancer, Alzheimer’s, protection against heart failure, diabetes, and arthritis. Two studies add to that mix with benefits for arterial aging and cognition.
The first of the news studies, published in Experimental Gerontology and performed by scientists from the University of Colorado, found that curcumin was associated with improved vascular health in aging lab mice.
Curcumin is a diferuloylmethane derived from turmeric (popularly called “curry powder”) that has been shown to interfere with multiple cell signaling pathways, including cell cycle, proliferation, survival, invasion, metastasis and inflammation.
Adding curcumin to human cells with the blood cancer multiple myeloma, Dr. Bharat B. Aggarwal of the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and his colleagues found, stopped the cells from replicating. And the cells that were left died.
