Researchers Find a Hidden Alzheimer’s Trigger? 

Dear Reader, 

Let’s be honest. 

When it comes to finding Alzheimer’s early, the mainstream is pretty useless. 

Most conventional docs won’t diagnose the disease until you’re already deep in the middle stages.  

And even then, they do little to keep it from progressing.  

But I have some good news — you don’t have to rely on them any longer.  

Because according to new research, there is a clear sign that Alzheimer’s could be in your future. 

And it’s hiding in plain sight. 

Doctors have known for a long time that your gum health impacts the rest of your body.  

The most well-known connection is gum disease and heart issues.  

But we’ve only just scratched the surface of the mouth/body connection. 

It turns out that what goes on in your mouth can impact your brain, too.  

A new study published in the journal Experimental Biology shows that a certain mouth bacteria could be one of the main drivers for Alzheimer’s disease.  

Porphyromonas gingivalis is found in many people with Alzheimer’s disease and gum disease. 

Periodontal disease occurs when bacteria slide between your teeth and your gum and cause your gums to recede – leading to more bacteria attacking your gums and teeth.  

When these bacteria start to grow and multiply, they dump chemicals into your bloodstream. Those chemicals increase the type of inflammation that triggers diseases like arthritis and Alzheimer’s.  

But how do you know if you have gum disease?  

If your gums bleed easily especially when you brush or flush, that is a sure sign.  

While some bleeding of gums is normal, if you have a lot of bleeding then you should get into see your dentist (and follow my gum disease protocol).  

So the take-away is this: preventing gum disease can go a long way to reducing Alzheimer’s. 

Dr. Scott’s Gum Disease Protocol: 

  • Stop the Sugar: If you need another reason to stop sugar, here it is. The bacteria in your mouth explode 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 gum disease).  
  • 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.
