    Actually recent studies are proving that it’s actinobacteria That’s causing Alzheimer’s disease. They found many different strains of it when they did brain autopsies on Alzheimer’s patient’s. This bacteria is the same one responsible for causing whipple’s disease and it’s known to cause arthritis too. Read the study on the 7 patient’s from Europe who all thought they had rheumatoid arthritis each one was tested for t. whipplei and they all had it. I believe this bacteria is causing a pandemic health crisis globally. It causes organic decomposition with everything it comes into contact with so likely cancer and even diabetes are being caused by this and quite possibly autism too. Crazy that a bacteria can do all of this and not be detected because it’s rarely thought of or considered and the testing for it is greatly flawed and pretty much useless. I wonder how long it will take them to figure all of this out and piece it altogether??? When they find a cure for this they will then see it will be a cure for many diseases and illnesses.

      Hi Ryan – Thank you for your contribution. I believe that science is moving our understanding of Alzheimer’s disease forward now that they are looking beyond the plaques and tangles model. It will be interesting to follow this study, but it is probably too soon to make any definitive statements about the causative role these bacteria play in Alzheimer’s. There does seem to be a connection between the bacteria in question and inflammation in the brain; inflammation is another factor that is being considered as a possible cause of Alzheimer’s (see Because investigators are looking beyond amyloid plaques and tangles as the definitive cause, I do think that we are getting closer to understanding and curing this bane. I wouldn’t have said that a few years ago.

    Turmeric belongs to the ginger family and the root is referred to as Yellow Ginger. Originating from South Asia, it is dried and sold in powder form today across the world. It is useful in various health conditions from cancer to Alzheimer’s disease. The best way to use it in curing sleep disorder is to add a pinch of turmeric powder in a cup of milk and taken before going to bed every day. If one can get raw Yellow Ginger, it can be used in making a Bitter Cucumber or Gourd salad. Cut into small pieces one or two pieces of raw yellow ginger root, cut a small size bitter cucumber or gourd ( this vegetable is a cure in killing cancer cells, reversing diabetes, curing gout and asthma), squeezed a lemon, add salt to taste. If preferred, add a green chili cut into small pieces. Mix well all ingredients and let it cool in the refrigerator. It can be consumed as salad.

    Hello all.

    I can attest to the benefits of turmeric for Alzheimers patients.

    My mother was diagnosed with Alzheimers in 2008 by a neurologist in Nairobi, Kenya where we live, after showing all the symptoms of dementia. including loss of short term memory, misplacing items, forgetting her name, forgetting where she is going and having no sense of date and time. She has also been wandering, becoming occasionally aggressive, tearful, and often unable to manage household chores.

    In late 2009 we started her on turmeric- giving a quarter and later a third of teaspoon of dried turmeric powder stirred into her milky tea three times a day. We later started adding a pinch of black pepper or tea masala (which contains black pepper, clovers, gingers, cinnamon) to increase bioavailability. We noticed an improvement in her mood, cognition and general health almost immediately.

    She no longer wanders or packs her belongings to “g home”. She is generally pleasant, and until a year ago when she had a fall, was able to take a shower with help and feed herself. She is now not able to walk unaided nor bathe herself due the effect of the fall (fear of falling) but has physiotherapy every week and walks about 15 meters everyday with assistance.

    She has retained her language ability in 3 languages and listens and responds to questions in full sentences. She laughs at jokes and is able to engage in conversations although her mind does wonder a bit. She sings hymns and songs from memory and often calls for certain (not all) family members by name. We increased her turmeric dose 7 months ago and notice a marked improvement in cognition and mood.

    Turmeric really made a huge difference.! I believe other families should try it out. It is economical to buy, can be grown in a large flower pot and harvested fresh, and also has many other health and culinary benefits.

    Re the smoothie – Mango and banana are both high in fructose. Mango is off the chart. Fructose is a serious inflammatory agent, so you are fighting yourself. Ditch the mango and banana and go with red, blue or purple berries instead. they are high in phytonutrients and low in fructose.

    I sprinkle turmeric on 7 min boiled eggs, or add to scramble eggs. I also add to soups, rice dishes, and rub on chicken. I love the flavor, and it adds a beautiful color to all foods.

    For breakfast I spread coconut oil (raw, virgin, cold pressed…not processed) on toast with a good layer of turmeric spice, a sprinkle of black pepper, some raw cocoa, and wild berry jam (to disguise the taste mostly). I’m hoping theirs enough good stuff there to delay Alzheimer’s…which runs in my family

      Hi John – As I am sure you know, there are no guarantees. According to the most current research, what your doing will do as much as anything to protect you from Alzheimer’s. All of those ingredients (with the exception of the toast), including the berry jam, can help. One of the latest foods you might like to add is maple syrup (see Also, add some exercise and brain stimulation. A combination of these things are your best protection.
