A study led by Dr. Patricia Boyle of Rush University Center in Chicago has concluded that people with greater life purpose maintained cognitive ability better than those who weren't leading a purposeful life.

Dr. Boyle and her team wanted to establish a strategy for avoiding Alzheimer's consequences rather than attempting to find a way of keeping brain plaques and tangles from accumulating.

After following 246 senior citizens -- with up to 10 years of annual cognitive exams and neurological testing -- and quizzing them about life missions and then doing brain autopsies after their deaths, they reached a conclusion.

(1) Life purpose/activity: As people age, they're prone to getting brain plaques and tangles. But if they have a life purpose zestfully pursued, they avoid dementia despite those physical impairments.


There are many real life examples of people managing well as they keenly continue to pursue their life adventures, especially adventures that require mental focus and activity.

Many experts also agree that engaging in mental activities which are new or challenging as one ages also helps retain mental acuity. Walking briskly in nature a mile or so four days a week also helps maintain one's cognitive abilities.

Four specific nutritional approaches

(2) Coconut oil:
After failing to get her dementia addled husband into an Alzheimer drug trial because they were no longer accepting volunteers, Dr. Mary Newport discovered the active ingredient in the formula tested was a synthetic medium chain triglyceride (MCT).

Getting patent rights for big bucks requires the creation of synthetic drugs. Synthetic drugs always produce side effects and their PR exceeds their efficacy.

Dr. Newport discovered that coconut oil contained natural MCT. Her husband had entered the darker side of dementia with his late stage Alzheimer's. Yet after around a month and a half he was almost completely recovered after taking a tablespoon of coconut oil twice daily. Metabolizing MCTs produces ketones, which dissolve brain plaques and tangles.

An Australian shared his escape from early stage Alzheimer's on YouTube using both coconut oil and niacin (B3), a supplement pioneered in orthomolecular psychiatry for many mental issues. Both episodes are here.

(3) Vitamin D3 and curcumin: The synergy of combining curcumin with vitamin D3 to prevent or reverse Alzheimer's is a recent development. Each substance alone has shown efficacy on dementia, so why wouldn't combining the two create a powerful synergy?

This has been recently proven to be effective without side effects.

(4) Eliminate aluminum: Avoid aluminum cooking utensils and underarm deodorants containing aluminum. Vaccines contain aluminum that goes right into your bloodstream. Aluminum bypasses the blood brain barrier and accumulates in soft tissue cells that regenerate less often than other tissues, creating plaque.
