Brain and Memory
There are literally hundreds of problems that could be included under Specific System Breakdowns. However, the purpose of this book is not to document them all - even if this was possible. My message is to highlight the indisputable fact that, basically they are ALL caused (genetic Inheritance aside) by our toxic environment and toxic and nutrient depleted food and water chain; and that we can do something about it - simply.
Please think about this: If the substances that nourish, support, build and repair us are heavily contaminated, how can we not also be contaminated? I have previously stated that millions of us are walking time bombs, waiting to explode. Thousands of men, women and worst of all, children, are exploding every single minute, every hour, day, month and year. Please don't be one of them. Take action now. I have always been fascinated by the nature of reality. Our lives' seemingly exist between two nonexistent states, the past and the future. Our awareness of self and our ability to function at little more than a basic level is dependent on memory. Some years ago I watched a documentary about a middle-aged man who could only remember the previous few seconds of his life. Each moment was for him was, as it were, a birth. He would be introduced to his wife, for instance, and five seconds later he would ask her who she was. He had some deeper awareness of his tragic circumstances and the living hell he had to endure. It was pitiful to watch. We give little consideration to the fact that a normal life is so dependent on an intangible faculty - the ability to remember. Alzheimer's disease is characterized by a loss of memory, lack of concentration, dementia and general mental deterioration. Physical functions such as bowel and bladder control are lost and general health declines severely.
A lack of vital nutrients, particularly those that are required for brain function, general toxicity and specific toxicity by inorganic heavy metals such as mercury and aluminum are implicated in the onset and progression of this disease. Alzheimer's sufferers are known to have a lack of the antioxidant vitamins A, E and beta-carotene. They also show low levels of vitamin B12, choline and zinc. Autopsies on persons who have died of Alzheimer's have shown aluminum levels in the brain to be up to four times higher than the 'normal' levels. This toxic metal was and is still used to make cooking utensils. Quite high levels of it leech into the food being cooked - on a regular basis. (If you own aluminum cookware please get rid of it). Other sources of inorganic aluminum in varying forms are in deodorants, buffered aspirin, shampoos, antacids, baking powder, cake mixes, processed cheese and even some health supplements. Thanks guys! It is well worth having one of the various tests that are available to determine your levels of any heavy metals that may be lurking in your body. If they are high, intensive detoxification work may be needed to get rid of them. Please seek the help of a health care professional with regard to this.
Note: Selenium methionine and free form amino acids bind with heavy metals, which facilitates excretion from the body. Dietary fiber also achieves this.
