Alzheimer’s Breakthrough or FDA Mistake?

When the FDA convened an independent commission in 2020 to decide whether a new Alzheimer’s drug called Aduhelm (generic name aducanumab) should be approved, ten out of the 11 experts on the commission said "No." As for that eleventh expert? This commission member said the verdict on the drug's efficacy in improving the brain health [...]

Scientists Discover New Protein That Causes Alzheimer’s Disease

Amyloid and tau proteins have long been linked to the development of Alzheimer's, yet frustratingly, their presence can't reliably predict the onset of the disease. The challenge for scientists has been to find a more reliable protein that can act as an early indicator, years before symptoms first appear. One group of scientists believe they [...]

Is Too Much TV Aging Your Brain?

By |2021-06-21T11:00:11+00:00June 21st, 2021|Natural Health|

Spending a lot of time watching television might be relaxing after a long day, but it also leads to brain shrinkage and lower cognitive function. At a recent American Heart Association (AHA) virtual conference, researchers involved in three new studies presented shocking evidence on the impact of television viewing on the brain. Let’s take a [...]

How Acupuncture Can Reshape Your Brain

Acupuncture, an ancient Chinese medical treatment dating back more than 5,000 years, can be controversial. There's no question that acupuncture produces effects that boost people's feelings of wellbeing. However, many modern medical researchers still don’t consider acupuncture as a legitimate medical therapy for the many conditions it’s touted for because they still can't explain what [...]

Scientists Reveal Surprising Link Between Odor Detection and Memory

Walk outside, what do you smell? Perhaps it’s the lovely rose bush blooming nearby. Or maybe it’s an unpleasant aroma, such as manure or air pollution. The important part is that your sniffer is still up to snuff. You see, according to some researchers, older adults who can still identify distinctive smells may maintain sharper [...]

Has a New Cause of Alzheimer’s Been “Swept Under the Rug?”

By |2021-06-11T15:36:02+00:00June 11th, 2021|Natural Health|

When someone develops Alzheimer's diseases, the brain changes. These changes include more than the growth of telltale plaques. The brain’s cells themselves change, especially their membranes. These membranes lose up to 60 percent of crucial compounds known as plasmalogens. And, according to researchers at Washington University in St. Louis, scientists have mostly turned a blind [...]

The Brain Change that Predicts Alzheimer’s Disease

By |2021-06-07T05:45:09+00:00June 7th, 2021|Brain Science|

The latest research points to a new hallmark of Alzheimer's disease that could prove to be far more promising as an early marker of the malady than the often talked about tau tangles and amyloid plaques. Detecting this marker when it first develops could provide the earliest indicator of the disease, as it can be [...]

Is This the Most Important Indicator of Dementia Risk?

By |2021-06-04T11:45:16+00:00June 4th, 2021|Natural Health|

Memory researchers have long been searching for early warning signs indicating the development of Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. The latest scientific studies are leading them to an unlikely place, or should I say organs… the kidneys. Let’s take a closer look at the evidence that points to a connection between declining kidney [...]
