Message from the President
Greetings friend, and welcome to the December Comfort Connection!
I was wrong! In a previous newsletter
, I referenced a study that stated eating dark green leafy vegetables will improve your brain health longer. I wrote, “I can’t speak to reversing dementia with a healthy diet, but the evidence is strong when it comes to prevention.”
The latest news is: you can REVERSE dementia!
Several of my readers pointed me to a book called The End of Alzheimer’s by Dale E. Bredesen. The author states Alzheimer’s can be reversed! I am happy to be wrong!
I ordered two copies of the book and gave one copy to my sister-in-law. I mentioned previously
my brother was diagnosed with early-onset dementia at the age of 56. That was five years ago. She has started to implement some of the ReCODE protocols in the book. ReCODE stands for Reversing Cognitive Decline. I am hopeful my brother will maintain his current status for a long time, if not improve! ReCODE has successfully treated over 200 people.
I am a strong advocate for diet and lifestyle changes to prevent and reverse disease. So-called "chronic" diseases are only chronic when we chronically follow an unhealthy lifestyle!
We take medication to manage the symptoms instead of getting to the root of the problem, which is so often diet and lifestyle. Type II Diabetes is a prime example of this phenomenon. As I’ve learned, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease also fall into that category. This is mind-blowing, mind-altering information once we get a hold of this. It may take North America years to understand this, especially since the pharmaceutical companies continue to feed us information to the contrary.
I love this quote from Dr. Bredesen’s book regarding the beginning of his work, starting with "patient zero":
“A doctor told his patient, ‘You are just an anecdote; you are not statistically significant.’ To which his patient replied, ‘Well, my family says that I am significant. Besides, I’m healthy once again, so I don’t care about statistics.’”
I encourage you today to become significant, both in your own life and the life of those your care for. Incorporate healthy dark green leafy vegetable into your diet at least once or twice a day. And even though Christmas festivities have begun, don’t let sugar draw you into its seductive force!
