Half of Alzheimer’s Patients Suffering from THIS Disease!?
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
Mainstream medicine likes to pretend disease strikes out of the blue.
Whether it’s cancer, diabetes, or a heart attack, they’ll have you convinced you had no way to see it coming.
But this simply isn’t true… especially when it comes to Alzheimer’s disease.
You see, researchers have discovered a KEY Alzheimer’s warning sign that could be detected three years EARLIER.
Here’s how to know if you or a loved one could be on that path… and how to get off of it.
A new study presented at the American Academy of Neurology Annual Meeting looked at 1,500 Alzheimer’s disease patients and found 43 percent had suffered from anxiety.
But not only that… 36 percent of the patients had been living with depression.
And it gets worse.
These patients were being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s two to three years earlier than patients without anxiety and depression.
And the more mental disorders someone had, the earlier the onset of Alzheimer’s.
One psychiatric disorder started Alzheimer’s 1.5 years earlier, two psychiatric disorders 3.3 years earlier, and three or more psychiatric disorders 7.3 years earlier.
This research shows us that anxiety and depression take a toll on your brain – they are literally aging your brain faster.
The researchers concluded that due to heightened inflammation in your brain, anxiety and depression kick your brain into overdrive, essentially wearing down important neurons (your brain’s communicators) faster.
I’m not here to tell you to never be anxious or depressed… these are normal feelings every person goes through, particularly when they lose a loved one or have to move.
But if anxiety or depression are constant features in your life, that is when they become a problem.
The good news is you can work and improve your symptoms with a just little bit of effort.
Dr. Scott’s Beat Anxiety and Depression Protocol:
- Magnesium. Start with the easiest thing first. I recommend taking 400mg of magnesium a day. Magnesium is good for your heart, brain, and muscles, and can also help ease anxiety.
- Stop Inflammation. Your brain is especially susceptible to inflammation, which can cause depression. I like curcumin and bacopa to support good brain health.
- Get good sleep. This can be hard sometimes, but if you need help, look to melatonin, theanine, and calming herbs.
- Exercise. When you’re feeling low, it’s hard to get out and do something like exercise, but simple exercise is scientifically proven to ease depression.
