AB blood types have 82 percent higher risk of dementia - learn how to improve brain health naturally
The mystic periodic table of elements is at play in the environment around us and within us. We don't recognize these elements on the surface; it's almost as if they represent different spiritual energies in a realm that we cannot quite see. They have different energetic actions in the human body, using differing proton-electron forces. Some of the elements are like guardian angels, lifting our spirits, clarifying our mind, renewing our energy. Then there are some that act like demons, tearing down our structure, inhibiting our spirit, destroying our mind. What if the battle for the human race was already identified within the periodic table of elements? What if humanity's ability to overcome challenges lies in their understanding of how the elements interact around us and within us?
How might a heavy metal like cadmium (Cd) make one more belligerent in personality and hardened in spirit?
How might fluorine (F) psychoactively destroy a free-willed, caring spirit, reassembling the mind so that all empathy is removed?
How might aluminum (Al) tear apart a person's mind as they age, welcoming Alzheimer's and dementia?
How might some heavy metals on the periodic table be more detrimental to people who were born with certain rare blood types?
How might certain foods, antioxidants, mindful meditation and yoga postures reduce the risk of dementia regardless of one's blood type risk?
Rare AB blood types at increased risk of dementia
A study led by Dr. Mary Cushman of the University of Vermont College of Medicine, Burlington, found that those with the rarest blood type -- AB -- are more sensitive to brainhttp://www.dreddyclinic.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=34 damage and memory loss as they age. The study, published in the journal Neurology, found that AB blood types have an 82 percent higher risk of dementia. What makes this blood type more sensitive to the cognition-impairing elements on the periodic table -- elements like lead, mercury, cadmium, fluorine, chlorine, arsenic, aluminum and others?
AB blood http://www.dreddyclinic.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=6 types must be more aware of these brain-damaging metals and halogens. They must proactively takes steps to increase cognitive function as they age. This would include investing in a standalone activated-charcoal and fluoride-reduction filter. These filters adsorb heavy metals from the water while pulling fluorine and arsenic out through reverse osmosis technology.
Foods that light the way forward and prevent dementia
Just because a food is organic does not mean that it is free of heavy metals. Some of the best foods for removing mercury from the gastrointestinal tract include strawberries, peanut butter and chlorella http://dreddyclinic.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=114&t=35066.
While avoiding toxins altogether is nearly impossible in today's industrialized world, it's the incorporation of specific whole foods into one's lifestyle that helps eliminate these toxins, carrying them out of the body before they travel into the blood and cross the blood-brain barrier. That's one reason why pesticide-free vegetarians are often healthier long-term; the whole food fibers in the fruit and vegetable diet bind with toxic elements and carry them out of the body more readily. In addition to whole foods, those looking to get serious about removing heavy metals from the body may turn to healing bentonite clay, which attracts heavy metals and pulls them out of the body.
Another realm of food science to consider when protecting the brain is antioxidants. Blueberries contain sufficient antioxidants that act as guardians for the brain. This studyhttp://www.dreddyclinic.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=114&t=35860 shows how blueberries protect the brain against cadmium toxicity. Another antioxidant called lycopene, found in tomatoes, protects the brain from dementia. Brain-protecting and brain-building EPA and DHA fats, found in flaxseed oil, pumpkin seeds, salmon, trout, etc., also prevent dementia http://www.dreddyclinic.com/findinformation/aa/alzheimer_disease/alzheimersdisease_3.php.
One important observation, especially when considering individual blood types, is that certain B vitamins -- B6, B12 and folic acid -- are known to reduce levels of homocysteine in the blood. By lowering homocysteine levels in the blood, risk of cognitive impairment, stroke and Alzheimer's disease is decreased.
Vitamin K in spinach promotes cognitive function along with vitamin E in other leafy green vegetables, asparagus, olives, seeds, eggs and brown rice. Selenium-rich foods are probably the most important to include in the diet. Selenium (Se) is one of those angelic forces on the periodic table, protecting mankind.
Mindful meditation, deep breathing and yoga sessions improve cognitive function
Detoxifying heavy metals and welcoming brain-protecting antioxidants isn't the only way to keep dementia at bay. Socializing, communicating and keeping the brain active into old age is also an important practice. Even more powerful is mindful meditation. A study published in Neuroscience Letters found that 15 minutes a day of mediation slows the progression of dementia. Yoga also teaches effective deep breathing and relaxation that can help oxygenate the blood and the brain. Oxygen (O) fuels the cells and is one of the guardians of life on the periodic table of elements.
In the meditation study, participants between ages 55 and 90 did a guided meditation for 15 to 30 minutes a day for eight weeks. After the two-month time period concluded, MRI scans showed that the collective functional connectivity in the participants' default mode network of the brain improved. The part of their brain that normally shuts down activity was more alert and engaged after meditation sessions. The hippocampus region of their brain, responsible for memory, did not shrink as it typically does when dementia takes hold. Lead researcher Rebecca Erwin Wells, MD, MPH, said, "What surprised us was, for a condition that has few other treatment options--and without FDA-approved medications to stop the progression to dementia--an intervention [like meditation] may impact the very areas of the brain most affected by Alzheimer's disease." She said that mindful meditation sessions included nonjudgmental, moment-to-moment awareness sessions where participants regularly paid attention to different parts of the body. Doing yoga postures is an excellent example.
Winning the war
As the unseen war rages on for the mind, body and spirit of the human race, it's important to identity what are the destructive forces seeking to destroy and what are the angelic forces, seeking to lift us to a higher realm of consciousness. Understanding the energetic forces within the periodic table, using whole-food heavy-metal-chelation therapies, consuming protective antioxidants and incorporating mindful meditation practices are all powerful ways to prevent dementia, regardless of blood type risk.
