Dr. Scott’s 2-Minute Alzheimer’s Cure

If you’re like most folks, you would do just about anything to never get Alzheimer’s disease.

That’s why you eat right… exercise when you can… and never skip yoursupplements.

But, as it turns out, there’s something else you should be doing every day if you care about your brain.

Fortunately,it’s cheap… easy… and will only take you about two minutes to do.

Let me show you.

A new study, published in the online journal PLOS ONE suggests, that periodontal disease – a common but preventable gum infection – can TRIGGER Alzheimer’s disease.

Many studies show that periodontal disease causes inflammationand this new study linksthat inflammation with thedestruction of brain cells.

Periodontal disease starts when bacteria grow between your teeth and gum line.

If this gum infection – called gingivitis – gets out of control, it’s called periodontal disease. And periodontal disease can lead to larger infections and even loss of teeth.

But way before periodontal disease goes bad, bacteria living happily between your teeth and gum line produce inflammation-causing chemicals.

And this specific type of bacterial-induced-inflammation has been closely associated with Alzheimer’s plaques in the brain.

This means that good oral hygiene may be the BEST way to prevent Alzheimer’s.

So, YES, you need to floss every day.

You can floss your whole mouth… and STOP Alzheimer’s… in just about two minutes a day.

But let’s not stop there.

Dr. Scott’s Gingivitis Protocol:

  • Stop the Sugar: If you need another reason to stop sugar, here it is. The bacteria in your mouth explodes after you eat something sugary. During that explosion, bacteria build plaques (that film you feel on your teeth). The more plaque-building bacteria do, the more likely they will make a home under your gums (eventually leading to periodontitis).
  • Salt Water Rinse: Doctors used to recommend salt-water rinses for many conditions. I think salt-water rinses are a great idea–many bacteria cannot survive under salty conditions. Brushing your teeth with salt is another good way to fight gingivitis.
  • Tea Tree Oil Rinse: Tea tree is a great antibiotic. There are mouthwashes with tea tree oil in them I recommend for people with gingivitis (don’t use the straight oil–it can be too harsh). They also make toothpaste with tea tree as an ingredient.
  • Olive Leaf Extract: Look for olive leaf in a mouth wash or toothpaste, but I also recommend taking it internally as a supplement as well.
