Brain Disease: How To Prevent Memory Loss and Get Your Life Back

Brain disease. Alzheimer’s. Parkinson’s. ALS. Autism. These disorders rob us and our loved ones of their precious minds and understandably strike fear into the hearts of most of the population. So many broken brains and the sad part is that conventional medicine only provides a pill without offering many lifestyle changes. However there is hope. A preventative and mindful lifestyle works to prevent the loss of neurons, the accumulation of toxic brain proteins and to reverse memory loss. It turns out that most of the emerging studies do validate the efficacy of a clean lifestyle in preventing brain disease.


The Far Reaching Effects of Brain Disease: 

30 million people worldwide suffer from Alzheimers and other forms of dementia. Just in the United States alone, 5.3 million people suffer from this specific dementia. Thats one in 8 Americans over the age fo 65. This number doesn’t even include other neurocognitive disorders like Parkinson’s, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), autism, Lewy Body dementia, Vascular Dementia (think strokes), Multiple System Atrophy, or Multiple Sclerosis. The burden of these diseases cost the US economy billions of dollars each yearin direct healthcare costs as well as lost opportunities. For example, its estimated that 100 billion dollars per year is spent on Alzheimer’s disease alone! But the emotional and financial price placed on families of brain disorder victims is often not taken into account.

You may ask how autism and Parkinsons could be similar, but they are both are malfunctioning of the central nervous system that lead to cognitive difficulties and understanding. Although we are focusing on the elderly population in this particular blog, some of these remedies may also be entertained for younger patients suffering from brain disorders.

It may seem as if these diagnoses are increasing….and they are, but theres a couple different reasons for that. First, the baby boomer generation is rapidly aging and there is an absolute link to increasing age and likelihood of a brain disease diagnosis. Modern medicine has adopted screening tests which capture more diagnoses than ever before. We even know a few genetic mutations that predispose us to developing brain diseases. However the environmental risk factors are ever increasing and cannot be ignored if we wish to truly help curb this frightening disorder that robs us of our essence. I want to stress that the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative conditions is still largely a mystery.


What Is Brain Disease?

Neurodegenerative diseases result from the gradual and progressive loss of neural cells or the myelin sheath, the covering over the nerve cells, all leading to nervous system dysfunction.

Whats interesting is the environment is often implicated in causing cancer. Cancer is the proliferation of unchecked growth among cells, whereas neurodegeneration is the loss of cells. They feel like they are on opposite ends of the spectrum. Luckily, research is now heavily focused on environmental triggers and toxins’ potential for damaging the nervous system.

I’ll never forget when my grandpa was diagnosed with Lewy Body’s dementia. This was in the early 2000’s so a diagnosis wasn’t immediate and we all knew something was terribly wrong. Papaw Charlie just wasnt himself anymore. I was in high school when he began to claim a small dark hair girl was running wild through his house and interrupting his morning coffee. His wild delusions even fooled us at first. Things progressed quickly, however, and one night my mom even had to rush out to his house after he’d packed his bags and told everyone that aliens were coming to abduct him that night….and he was ready. By the time, he didn’t really smile anymore and had a shuffling gait, we had our diagnosis.

Lewy Body dementia is characterized by abnormal dopamine loss, accumulation of Lewy Body proteins and inclusions in the brain. It is the second most common form of dementia behind Alzheimers and the symptoms are a mix of Parkinson’s and Alzheimers. Patients, just like my grandpa, have masked facies, a shuffling gait, are a falls risk, have visual hallucinations, delusions and sometimes, violent behavior due to cognitive decline. It was not easy to watch him slip away, but the shell of his body remain. The saddest part about it all is that evidence indicates that it could be preventable, despite genetic mutations.

Symptoms of Early Cognitive Decline:

Early cognitive defects can be difficult to recognize initally. Get help for yourself or a loved one if you recognize:

Memory Loss, mostly short term

Difficulty with word finding

Visual perception or hallucinations

Reasoning and judgment issues

Inappropriate frustration or unexplained anger

The Gut-Brain Connection

If I stress anything with my patients, my social media community and within my own scope of practice, it is the gut-brain connection. It is so complicated and we are just now understanding the implications of it. The brain and the gut communicate intimately and bidirectionally with the gut sending many more messages to the brain than the brain does to the gut. They are connected. In fact, in embryology, they originate from the same group of cells and then separate to form the brain and gut. No matter how far apart, we are now learning they are forever connected. So if your gut is a mess, then this likely means your brain is at risk too. Sugar and the standard American diet are likely culprits in the cause of many patients’ brain fog.

What Environmental Triggers Can Be Avoided? Whats the Answer? 

Causes of brain deterioration are often multifactorial so answers are not straightforward. Here are some of my best tips for keeping your brain as healthy and sharp as possible.

“Two forms of fat that are vitally important for brain health are cholesterol and saturated fat.” -Dr David Perlmuter, author of Grain Brain

  1. Dietary: DON’T: Eat a diet high in processed carbs and refined sugar. Eliminate high fructose corn syrup, processed foods, food additives, and trans fats. This has been shown to promote inflammation and predispose some people to developing neurocognitive decline. DO: Eat an organic diet high in good fats like seeds, nuts, avocados, olive or coconut oils as well as a plethora of organic fruits and vegetables. Medium chain triglycerides found in coconut oil are easier for the brain to break down than the long chain triglycerides that are more commonly found.  Healthy fats feed the brain and keep it functioning properly because over 60% of the brain is made up of DHA, an omega 3 or healthy fat. They provide a back door of energy for the brain. Omega 3, like DHA, can increase mental clarity and focus. When I check for omega 3’s on labwork, the majority of people are low! Omega 3 fatty acids can drastically improve mood, memory and clarity. Protein is also extremely important for a properly functioning brain and for that matter, healthy skin. Aim for 25-30 grams of protein per meal.

  1. Hormonal: If you suffer from a thyroid condition, an estrogen dominance, or low testosterone than this can also affect your mood, vitality, mental clarity and even personality. Many of these conditions can predispose patients to panic attacks, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and apathy. Be diligant about seeking out a healthcare provider who is willing to look beyond standard testing and check for sex hormone abnormalities too, not just a run of the mill thyroid panel (although thats important too). Many hormones are made and recycled through the gut. Melatonin is partially made in the gut. Serotonin is made in the gut. A large portion of our immune systems are housed in the gut. It is often responsible for our insomnia, anxiety, lowered immunity, and depression. So if your diet isn’t a whole foods diet, try to make changes quickly. Its important for thyroid disease patients to cut out soy and gluten as well. Ridding your home of toxic cleaning products, personal care products, makeup and perfumes that are not natural can also improve hormonal abnormalities. Supplementing with iodine and selenium may also improve thyroid function but be sure to check with a healthcare professional before adding in any supplementation.
  2. Don’t Lower Your Cholesterol Too Much: The medical system has demonized cholesterol over the years. We have all been bombarded with statin commercials for drugs like Lipitor. I remember hearing doctors in echo chambers stating that everyone should be on a statin and that “cholesterol could never be too low.” How wrong we were. Low cholesterol is a risk factor in developing neurodegenerative conditions. Cholesterol is actually found in the brain-about 25% of the total . In fact, many hormones, like progesterone, estrogen, cortisol, testosterone, and vitamin D are made from cholesterol. To lower it beyond its means, may lead to hormonal depletions, which can lead to brain fog, mental decline and aging. A 2008 study published in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry showed that in the elderly, the best memory function was observed in those with the highest levels of cholesterol!
  3. Screen for Diabetes: Believe it or not, high blood sugars can wreak havoc on brain health by causing inflammation. This happens because when your sugar is consistently high, more insulin is secreted to try to counter it but the problem is… insulin is super inflammatory. Sugars also change the protein structure throughout the body, adding even more inflammation, which the brain is particularly susceptible to. An anti inflammatory diet full of fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, healthy fats and lean proteins. Get your A1c checked and look for warning signs of diabetes like excessive thirst, urination, dizziness, blurry vision and fatigue. Anti-inflammaory herbs and supplements include curcumin/turmeric, alpha lipoic acid, cat’s claw, grape seed extract, frankincense, and CBD oil. Metformin is not a terrible route to treat type 2 diabetes. Natural remedies that also are effacacious include berberine, cinnamon, chromium, and alpha lipoic acid.
  4. Test for Pollutants/Heavy Metals: I always advise my patients with cognitive symptoms to be checked for heavy metal toxicities that are often overlooked and unexpected. Lead paints, mercury amalgams, pesticide exposure, and the increasing vaccination schedule all add to the heavy metal load in our bodies. It is wise to look into heavy metal analysis via hair sampling, oral chelation with herbal supplementation. Cilantro with chlorella is also helpful.
  5. Don’t Forget About Infections: Yep, pathogens like Epstein Barr virus, Lyme, Bartonella, Strep and candida can lie dormant or exist in biofilms, which remain hidden from the body’s defenses. They use heavy metals as an inflammatory shield. The heavy metals create inflammation that allows the pathogens to take over the body’s defenses. The immune system can have a hard time getting a hold on the infection, depending on your specific genes and predispositions. I personally believe that many of these pathogens remain hidden due to our lack of lab capabilities and they could be responsible for chronic diseases. We don’t understand why most chronic diseases manifest, however science is getting closer. Recent studies have even suggested that Epstein Barr Virus is behind thyroid disease.

I want you to know that you can prevent many of the neurodegenerative conditions. Most chronic illnesses are preventable, sadly. The power lies with you and your daily choices. Make self loving choices that your future self will thank you for later!

You are your own best doctor.

Monsanto’s Round Up and Aluminum Now Linked to Autism, Alzheimers, Gut Dysbiosis and Pineal Gland Calcification: An Important Article Review

This is, in my opinion, by far the most important blog post I’ll ever write. I wish I could disseminate this information virally on the web so that every doubter could read this groundbreaking information.

This blog is based on an extremely important research article written by Dr Stephanie Seneff of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and published in 2015 in Agricultural Sciences (it’s linked below for any of you smarties who’d like to read it on your own) and absolutely blew my mind.

I literally couldn’t NOT write about this.


Glyphosate, better known through its popular formation, as RoundUp Ready, is Monsanto’s premier pesticide/herbicide that has increased greatly in use since the early 2000s. It has not been well studied. As glyphosate usage has increased, so has the adoption of genetically engineered crops such as corn, soy and cotton that have been designed to withstand pesticides. Epidemiological data readily available on the web from US government sources indicate a remarkably strong correlation between glyphosate application to corn and soy and multiple neurological disorders, as will be shown via graphs taken directly from the study I am referencing. See below courtesy of this wonderfully conducted study.

All graphs courtesy of

Round Up’s main ingredient is glyphosate, which works synergistically with aluminum, which is often percent in certain foods, water, and vaccines, to induce neurological damage. If you ask Monsanto, they will tell you that in vivo studies showed Round Up to be nontoxic to animals. However, there are two large problems with this assumption. Firstly, the studies were too short as they were only performed for 3 months on average. Secondly these absolutely skewed studies were only performed using pure glyphosate but left out the combination of adjuvants/fillers that have always been contained in the herbicide that is sold on shelves. These adjuvants include polyethoxylated alkylamines (POEAs), which is known to be extremely toxic on its own and can synergistically increase the toxicity of Glyphosate by 125 fold! These authors wrote ([39] Abstract, p. 1): “Despite its reputation, Roundup was by far the most toxic among the herbicides and insecticides tested”. Moreover, Monsanto claims that Glyphosate is not harmful to humans as it disrupts the Shikimate pathway that is present in plants but not in animal cells. This argument overlooks the fact that our gut bacteria also have the shikimate pathway and they use it to make essential nutrients that our cells cannot make! This includes many amino acids, which have been found to be deficient in Alzheimers and Autism cases.

One important study that echoed these results was performed by the researcher, Seralini. Sadly, it was published and then retracted from the journal. It showed rats fed GM corn and soy over their entire lifetime developed mammary tumors, liver and kidney malfunctions. The controversy stemmed from the study sample size and other fraudulent allegations about how the research was set up. However, if you know the power and political pull that Monsanto has, you would question the legitimacy of these claims. Fortunately, the same study has now been republished by another journal.


Studies are now linking glyphosate alone to disrupted gut bacteria. This matters because a healthy gut micro biome with species like lactobacillus or bacteroides works in unison and harmony with our bodies. However, if our gut permeability is increased, (the membrane becomes leaky, letting things pass through our defenses and into the bloodstream) then this is when we see a rise in chronic conditions like eczema, psoriasis, anxiety, depression, autoimmune conditions and neurologic problems like autism and dementia. Our gut membrane becomes permeable due to an imbalance of pathogenic bacteria or parasites that work against our body’s digestive functions. For example, eating a diet high in sugar/processed carbs feeds pathogenic bacteria like Bacteroides and Firmicutes, which has been shown to alter the natural pH of the gut. This is vital because an acidic pH is what triggers the release of digestive enzymes. Without these enzymes, we don’t properly break down food for absorption. This leads to a bunch of humans that are nutritionally deprived of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that run every process in our bodies.

What connects the gut, or second brain, to the actual brain is the vagus nerve. The gut speaks more to the brain than the brain speaks to the gut. The gut, or should I say the bacteria that make up our gut, decide what cravings we endure, whether we feel happy or sad, how quickly we can gain or lose weight, and how efficiently our immune systems work. Why? Because 80% of our immune cells are contained in gastrointestinal associated lymphatic tissue (GALT) and 90% of our serotonin receptors are inside our intestines! It all begins in the gut! What we now know is that the neuroendocrine system, brain and gut all have a “chemical language” that is not fully understood by modern science. When the gut is disrupted, we see issues with immunity, sleep patterns, digestion, and mood.

So how does Glyphosate and aluminum in Round Up affect neurologic conditions? Well I’ve alluded to it when I described the gut-brain connection via the vagus nerve. But there is another very important organ that is connected to neurologic conditions like Alzheimers, Parkinsons, autism, schizophrenia, anxiety and depression. It is linked to spirituality, yoga and meditation and ancient cultures around the world refer to it as the “third eye.” It is the pineal gland.


Sleep is regulated by melatonin. Many of you may have heard of melatonin as it’s now marketed as a popular natural supplement for sleep problems. It is released by the pineal gland at night. The pineal gland is a small pine cone shaped organ that sits behind the optic chiasma. It is highly perfused with blood, second only to the kidney. This is interesting to me that such a small gland would need such a high amount of blood flow. We have long associated the pineal gland with sleep wake, or circadian rhythm cycles, but new research is indicating that we have not understood this gland well. It seems that ancient cultures or even some eastern religions have not forgotten the role of the “third eye,” allegedly the pineal gland. There have been some recently published articles (2) that show Metatonin, related to melatonin, but is DMT based, is produced in the pineal gland of rats. DMT has long thought to be the molecule of consciousness which links the pineal gland to possible higher function than previously thought. Interestingly enough, the pineal glands of those with Alzheimers are completely calcified.  Approximately 40% of Americans have their pineal glands calcified by age 17. By old age, the pineal gland has about as much fluoride as teeth do. Why does this happen? Well the pineal gland is not protected by the blood brain barrier, which guards from many toxins and heavy metals. Therefore anything that enters our bloodstream will be exposed to the pineal gland without much protection. This explains why it is especially susceptible to exposure to environmental toxins such as aluminum, fluoride, cadmium, and mercury. “A study on the neuro- logical effects of occupational exposure to aluminum revealed sleep disturbance as a common complaint, with insomnia being reported in 22.4% of cases and sleepiness in 14.9%.”

Calcification seen in the pineal gland under microscope

Not only is the pineal linked to neurologic disorders if malfunctioning or calcified, but it has a strong connection to sleep disorders too. Its easy to understand how psychiatric and neurologic disorders would also disrupt sleep. In fact, a Hong Kong study found psychiatric conditions were the strongest predictors of insomnia in both men and women. The pineal is likely involved in all of these conditions. In one study, the brains of the deceased were examined and aluminum was found in the pineal glands. It accumulates aluminum at a rate that is twice that of other brain regions.


This combo can harm us in three different pathways that I’ll be discussing below via the Seneff study. First, through interfering with the CYP450 detox enzymes that also help to make melatonin. Secondly, by causing anemia that leads to hypoxia (decreased oxygenation) which increases the effect of aluminum on neurons (brain cells). Thirdly, through impaired sulfate synthesis in the liver in combination with vitamin D interference.

1. Enzyme Interference Leading to Disrupted Melatonin and Vitamin D deficiency. Heavy metals like aluminum and mercury are known neurotoxins.  In the Seneff paper, it is shown how these two toxicants work together to induce neurological damage. Many studies have now shown that Glyphosate disrupts the gut flora and this predisposes one to overgrowth from Clostridium Difficile. Better known in medical circles as C. Difficile, this nasty bug gives patients abdominal cramping, diarrhea and nausea. It reproduces by spores and can only be killed by using soap and water, not hand sanitizers. The most worrisome part is this bacteria is now being found outside of hospitals and in the community because our immunity is being lowered, in part due to Glyphosate. Both aluminum and glyphosate can enter the body together to cause major issues. Glyphosate chelates, or binds up aluminum. When this happens it can pass by the gut barrier and enter the bloodstream unchecked. This study also shows that both glyphosate and aluminum disrupt the cytochrome CYP450 enzyme which are involved in a number of detox reactions and in melatonin synthesis. P450 enzymes also help to breakdown medications, drugs, pesticides and other toxins, but if inhibited, the likelihood that we will experience toxicity is much higher. The CYP enzymes also are integral to making melatonin. So if we have glyphosate toxicity, we may be inadvertently harming our natural sleep patterns, leading to insomnia and impaired REM sleep.                                                                                                                 “Pigs fed a diet of GM Roundup-Ready corn and soy suffered from an inflamed stomach, clearly suggesting gut dysbiosis. A leaky gut, associated with gastrointestinal disorders, will facilitate the passage of both Al- citrate and Al-glyphosate past the impaired tight junctions of the gut boundary. Glyphosate is a microbicide, and it preferentially kills beneficial gut bacteria allowing pathogens like Clostridium difficile to overgrow.”-


REMEMBER THAT OUR BALANCED GUT FLORA REGULATES MOODS, CRAVINGS, AND IMMUNITY! This is imperative as Glyphosate wipes out good bacteria and promotes a breeding ground for maleficent bacteria.

It has also been noted that vitamin D deficiency, now rampant in the USA, can be caused by interference with the CYP enzymes. The charts from this paper also relates the epidemic of vitamin D deficiency to the correlation of expanding use of Round Up throughout the country.

There seems to be an important role for CYP enzymes in maintaining the health of the intestinal crypts and the villi in the small intestine, and this paper argues that CYP dysfunction in the gut and liver leads to impaired supply of serotonin, melatonin and sulfate to the brain. It is postulated that celiac disease is caused partially by Glyphosate as it causes CYP enzyme dysfunction as well.

2. Anemia and Hypoxia. The clostridia bacteria produces a toxic metabolite called p-cresol, which it is quite harmful and is linked to autism. Why? P-cresol can increase the uptake of aluminum via a receptor called transferrin. Aluminum can work synergistically with Glyphosate to produce anemia which can lead to decreased oxygen carrying capacity, known as hypoxia. Hypoxia increases the risks of aluminum’s effects on the neurons. This is also dangerous for the pineal as it loves lots of blood flow, but is inhibited from getting enough oxygen when anemia is present. Babies born with hypoxia due to preterm labor have a higher risk for autism as this hypoxia increases aluminum uptake by the pineal gland. (that has no protection because it doesn’t have the blood-brain barrier, remember?) Its a little like choking the pineal gland out; starving it of oxygen while introducing heavy metals that influence calcification.

3.  Impaired sulfate synthesis caused by vitamin D deficiency. Sulfate is an important ingredient in the phase 2 liver detoxification and is the precursor to the master antioxidant, glutathione. It has long been known that children with autism have impaired sulfate synthesis. In fact, these children are missing some very important building blocks like methionine, glutathione and cysteine. What is thought to occur is that glyphosate blocks the formation of these amino acids in plants and gut bacteria. But everyone is forgetting that these are humans’ sources of sulfate-plants and bacteria! We are all connected intimately to bacteria. When we disrupt their natural systems, we also seem to harm our own.

Furthermore, the CYP enzymes are again needed here to activate vitamin D in the kidney and the liver. With aluminum and glyphosate creating a barrier to vitamin D activation, it is thought that this could potentially be behind the vitamin D deficiency epidemic.

How is this defect in vitamin D related to sulfate?

Well, studies show that vitamin D regulates the uptake of sulfate in the kidneys. When the receptor is defective or we are vitamin D deficient, we are not transporting sulfate into the cells in the small intestines and therefore, the brain, (they’re connected!) which affects the proteoglycans, which are necessary for the health GI tract cells. Experiments on mice with impaired vitamin D receptors found that they had lower blood levels of sulfates and were dumping most of it out in their urine. If our GI tract is sick, then so are our brains and immune dysfunction usually follows.

In the brain, the pineal gland conjugates melatonin to sulfate before shipping it out. Vitamin D, tryptophan (used to make the happy neurotransmitter, serotonin), DHEA (the precursor to testosterone), and estrogen are all also sulfated when they are shipped out. Sulfate is also proposed to be needed in the body’s mechanism to rid itself of toxic cellular debris, plaques, oxidized lipids and old proteins. Can you see how important sulfate transport and utilization is throughout the entire body?

“In summary, evidence from multiple fronts suggests that sulfate insufficiency is a critical factor in neurological disease. A deficiency in vitamin D, which induces sulfate wasting through the kidneys, leads to suppressed serotonin synthesis in the brain and excess serotonin synthesis in the placenta, both of which contribute to the pathology of autism in the fetus and the neonate.

It has become very clear that Alzheimer’s is associated with calcification of the pineal gland, and with sharply decreased synthesis of melatonin. When melatonin levels were measured postmortem in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of 85 Alzheimer’s patients and 82 age-matched controls , it was found that CSF melatonin levels in the AD patients were only 20% of the levels found in the control subjects. This was equally true for early-stage Alzheimer’s as for late-stage. Those with two copies of the ApoE-4 marker for Alzheimer’s risk had even lower levels of melatonin than the other Alzheimer’s patients. Computer tomography (CT) was used to show that the amount of calcified pineal tissue in patients with Alzheimer’s disease was significantly more than that in either normal controls, patients with depression, or patients with other types of dementia.”

Although we know calcification can begin very early in life, it is clearly much worse in neurologic conditions, like Alzheimer’s. The pineal gland helps to make sulfate when properly functioning, but calcification has a significant negative effect on its ability to do so. Therefore, aluminum uptake (remember it’s greater in the pineal gland), will disrupt melatonin and sulfate synthesis needed to run many processes in the body that keep us well.


I couldn’t have said it better than Dr Seneff so I’ll finish with her discussion quote. I hope you all can see how important it is to raise awareness on this topic. We should all be demanding honest and organic food for our families. We should be speaking out against biotech firms who seeks profit over humanity. We should be looking to natural herbs and vitamins to help detox us from herbicides and pesticides. Take care of yourself. You are your own best doctor.

“In this paper, we have developed the argument that a synergistic interaction between aluminum and glyphosate can lead to severe impairment of pineal gland function, and that this could explain the association of sleep disorder with a wide range of neurological diseases, and likely even help explain the related pathologies of those diseases. We began by showing the remarkably strong correlations between glyphosate application to corn and soy in the US and sleep disorder, autism, ADHD, suicide, anxiety disorder, and dementia. We have shown how glyphosate could assist entry of aluminum into the general circulation through chelation, and how glyphosate would indirectly enhance aluminum absorption by the pineal gland via its induction of p-cresol synthesis by pathogenic gut bacteria. p-Cresol enhances aluminum uptake via transferrin, which is present in large amounts in the pineal gland, and in enhanced amounts under hypoxic stress conditions, induced by both glyphosate and aluminum. We have also discussed the important role of CYP enzyme dysfunction in disrupting vitamin D3 homeostasis and disrupting sulfation and metabolism of melatonin. We have shown that vitamin D3 normally plays an important role in maintaining the health of the intestinal villi in the small intestine, and we have argued that part ofits role may be to supply sulfate to the enterocytes.
Serotonin is the sole precursor to melatonin, and serotonin itself is produced by ECcells in the intestinal villi from tryptophan, one of the three aromatic amino acids whose synthesis is disrupted by glyphosate, through its interference with the shikimate pathway. Since tryptophan is an essential amino acid, we depend upon supply from food sources and/or from our gut bacteria. Thus, it can be expected that glyphosate residues in the food crops introducing exposure to gut microbes would lead to deficiencies in tryptophan and therefore in serotonin and melatonin.”

Much Love
