Dr. Scott’s Plan for STOPPING Dementia

When I was younger, I NEVER thought about my brain. 

But as I get older, I think about it A LOT… and I bet you do, too. 

We’ve all lost too many people over the years to Alzheimer’s and dementia. And it’s no way to spend your final days on Earth. 

I can handle the occasional aches and pains that come with aging… but losing my independence?

No, thank you. 

I want you and everyone you love to live the “dementia-free” golden years you deserve. 

There are three keys to stopping dementia in its tracks (plus some nutrients that really help). 

Let me show you.

When health scientists look at people who have dementia and compare them to people who don’t, here is what they notice: 

  • Blood Pressure:  A recent study in the Journal of General Internal Medicine found a close relationship between using drugs to reduce blood pressure and dementia later in life. So, if you have high blood pressure, avoid drugs and use natural remedies like magnesium.   
  • Blood Sugar: High blood sugar destroys brain cells. It doesn’t happen quickly, but slowly – the way cigarettes harm your lungs. Control blood sugar with natural supplements like berberine.  
  • Exercise: The key to using exercise to benefit your brain is to do it every day, and make it a part of your life. It doesn’t have to be anything crazy. Just consistent. 

But let’s not stop there — here are the nutrients your brain needs the most: 

Zinc: This mineral is a big part of your immune system, but it also has a huge impact on mental health. Studies have shown zinc helps with mood disorders, depression, and anxiety (all side effects of dementia). You can find zinc in red meat, poultry, beans, and whole grains. 

Omega-3s: I can’t say enough about essential fatty acids EPA/DHA. Most people are deficient. Studies have shown omega-3 fatty acids are good for your heart, immune system, brain, and blood vessels. They also help with mood and reasoning abilities. I recommend supplementing with one to three grams of fish oil a day. 

Vitamin D: Vitamin D is known as a bone vitamin, but it is much more than that. There are many studies linking low vitamin D to depression and even mental illness. There are vitamin D receptors in the brain, and they are located near known depression centers. If you live near the equator and spend a good amount of time outside, forget supplementing. Otherwise, make sure you supplement, especially in the winter (but don’t forget you should always take vitamin D with vitamin K). 

B Vitamins: B vitamins help with depression, but also dementia, and poor thinking. B vitamins can be found in beef liver, fish, poultry, eggs and dairy products. Make sure you are getting enough B12, B6, folate, and biotin. 

Iodine: This is a mineral found in abundance in seafood. Since most of us don’t eat enough seafood, we’re usually not getting enough iodine. This is a problem because iodine is the principle ingredient in your thyroid hormone – which is your master regulator of metabolism. Without thyroid hormone, everything slows down (including your brain). Your solution is to eat plenty of seafood, or supplement with iodine.

Protein:  It’s essential for building almost every brain chemical (neurotransmitters), but is also important for maintaining healthy brain cells. 

Health and Happiness,
