Low Back Pain: Questions and Answers (Part 1)

Do you suffer from low back pain? Eighty-five percent of people do, at some point in their lives. Back pain is the second most common complaint prompting doctors’ visits, exceeded only by coughs and respiratory infections. Five percent of back pain is caused by a cause such as infection, tumor, arthritis or inflammation, but for the other ninety-five percent, the cause is difficult to determine. Because non-specific LBP (low back pain) is so common, and so mysterious, treatment has become a big business. Americans spend about $50 billion annually on prevention and treatment of LBP.

Can You Prevent Alzheimer’s?

As the baby boomer generation moves into advanced age, the rate of Alzheimer’s disease is also rising. There is presently no cure for Alzheimer’s, but some doctors believe there are steps you can take to prevent the disease. A recent article by Dr. Joseph Mercola offers some steps to follow:

1. Eat real food. – Avoid processed foods, and prepare your food at home. Any of thousands of dangerous chemicals are in food cooked in industrial kitchens.

2. Stay away from sugar and refined fructose. – Keep sugar intake to a minimum, and total fructose intake below 25 grams a day. If you have insulin/leptin resistance or a related disorder, eat as little as 15 grams a day.

3. Avoid gluten and casein, which is wheat and pasteurized dairy. – Research indicates gluten negatively impacts the blood-brain barrier and damages your gut, leading to inflammation and autoimmunity. Take probiotics.

4. Eat more healthy fats. – Your brain needs omega-3 healthy fats. Eat grass-fed meats, coconut oil, olives and olive oil, avocado, nuts, organic pastured egg yolks, and butter made of milk from grass-fed cows.

5. Cut your calorie intake. – Reduce the number of calories you consume, or try intermittent fasting. Replace carbs with coconut oil.

6. Take magnesium. – Early research indicates high levels of magnesium in the brain decrease Alzheimer’s symptoms. Magnesium threonate appears to pass through the blood-brain barrier.

7. Eat well. – A nutritious diet includes vegetables, which are rich in folate. Eat plenty of raw veggies.

8. Exercise regularly. – Exercise may affect the way the amyloid precursor protein is metabolized, which could slow down the onset and progression of Alzheimer’s.

9. Get enough vitamin D. – Optimize your levels of this important vitamin with safe sun exposure. Vitamin D fights inflammation which is associated with Alzheimer’s.

10. Avoid and eliminate mercury. – Once you have adjusted your diet and gotten healthy, Dr. Mercola recommends you have dental amalgam fillings removed, as they are 50 percent mercury.

11. Avoid and elminate aluminum. – Aluminum is present in antiperspirants, non-stick cookware, and vaccine adjuvants. Flu vaccinations also contain both mercury and aluminum.

12. Avoid anticholinergics and statins. – Drugs that block the neurotransmitter acetylcholine have been shown to increase the risk of dementia. These drugs include some nighttime pain relievers, antihistamines, sleep aids, and certain narcotic pain relievers, antidepressants, and medications to control incontinence. Dr. Mercola is concerned about statins because they suppress the synthesis of cholesterol, deplete your brain’s supply of coenzyme Q10, vitamin K2, and certain neurotransmitter precursors. They also interfere with the adequate delivery of essential fatty acids and antioxidants to your brain.

13. Challenge your brain daily. – Stimulate your mind through learning something new. Take up an instrument or a new language, both of which appear to lower your risk of Alzheimer’s.

While a cure for Alzheimer’s is still out of sight, you can take action to protect your brain from this terrible disease.
