In my opinion, what you eat is the most important thing that influences dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. There is one food I believe you have to avoid if you’re trying to improve symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, and that is refined carbohydrates.

Surprisingly, insulin is actually neuroprotective, and carbs increase insulin. If you’re deficient in insulin, your risk for amyloid plaquing goes up.

But this doesn’t mean you should consume more carbs. A high-carb diet is associated with high blood sugar, and people with high blood sugar or diabetes have an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

When your insulin is too high, your body starts protecting itself against excess insulin, leading to insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is a deficiency of insulin inside the cells. It’s important to have just the right amount of insulin.

Refined carbs and sugar can also create brain inflammation. Not only that but sugar and refined carbs can destroy the energy sources for neurons and create oxidation and free-radical damage while also decreasing antioxidants.

This is why it’s key to fix insulin resistance. If you fix insulin resistance, the neurons can get the level of insulin they need for neuroprotection and to help decrease inflammation.

How to support healthy insulin levels:
1. Get on the keto diet (run your body on ketones)
2. Do intermittent fasting
3. Do OMAD
4. Consume nutrient-dense foods
5. Decrease stress

There’s one food that you must avoid In order to overcome Alzheimer’s in fact I don’t think you can actually even Improve Alzheimer’s symptoms if you Continue to consume this one food with Alzheimer’s we have this fire going on In the brain we have inflammation Amyloid plaquing neurofibrillary Tangles Which is basically like this big ball of Fishing line that develops right after The plaquing so they both work together And then the immune reaction to that Creates a tremendous amount of Inflammation and all these neurons start Dying but of all the factors that can Influence Alzheimer’s positive or Negative What you eat is the most important thing Here’s some information that you Probably have never heard before insulin Is neural protective it actually Protects your brain cell it actually Prevents this amyloid plaquing from Developing and it also prevents the Accumulation of those Tangled type Fibers that I just mentioned there’s Even therapies that certain doctors use Called intranasal insulin sprays where They actually spray insulin up your Sinuses so they go right into the brain And it’s been proven that it increases Memory and the ability to learn so one Big factor relating to insulin is that If you’re deficient in insulin uh your

Risk for getting amyloid plaquing goes Up what increases insulin carbs So should we start eating carbs okay is That going to help the situation no Because carbs raise blood sugars And people with high blood sugar like Diabetics have a much higher risk of Getting Alzheimer’s so this is confusing Because carbs increase insulin and that Should naturally prevent you from Getting Alzheimer’s but it actually Causes Alzheimer’s this is why some People coin the term type 3 diabetes is Alzheimer’s okay here’s the missing Information when you increase insulin You instantly create Resistance the body starts to protect You against this excess insulin and it Leads to insulin resistance okay When you have insulin resistance you Actually have a deficiency of insulin Inside your cells so more insulin Creates a deficiency of insulin sounds Strange sounds counterintuitive but now You know why because the body forms this Protective mechanism Which is insulin resistance and as far As how this relates to alzheimer’s you Have the blood-brain barrier okay that Can actually be resistant to insulin now Even though the brain does make a little Bit of insulin majority of the brain’s Insulin is dependent on what’s Happening Throughout the body so just as a

Diabetic develops insulin resistance Throughout the body the brain can also Develop insulin resistance as well Especially in the blood brain barrier so Insulin resistance is the most important Thing you need to understand so many People don’t understand this and they’re Unknowingly making things worse By feeding their parents and Grandparents the wrong food because the Number one thing that will increase Insulin is carbs okay I’m not talking About vegetable carbohydrates I’m Talking about sugars and I’m talking About refined grains and I’m talking About grains as well yeah breads pasta Cereal crackers biscuits waffles Pancakes Muffins juice desserts all these things Will absolutely positively make things Worse you can’t fix Alzheimer’s on top Of these carbs it’s impossible you must Fix insulin resistance the carbs aren’t The only thing that creates a spike in Insulin okay And by the way when you fix instant Resistance The neurons finally get the level of Insulin that they need to help this Neural protection and decrease the Inflammation now carbs in general Especially in the refined form and Sugars create a tremendous amount of Inflammation too in the brain that’s in

Addition to the insulin problem all These carbs also create a lot of Mitochondrial damage okay which destroy The mitochondria which is the energy to The neuron itself and also at the same Time creating a lot of oxidation and for Radical damage and a lowered ability to Deal with that because consuming a lot Of sugars and refined carbs decrease Your antioxidants so we have all this Inflammation without any ability to Counter the inflammation so what is the Most important thing you can do if you Have a loved one that has Alzheimer’s or You are starting to develop symptoms for Alzheimer’s is to understand this Mechanism and fix insulin resin distance And there are several ways to do it okay Number one you must lower your carbs so You can start shifting your your body Running on ketones which is a preferred Better more efficient fuel to the brain Cells So if you get a ketone meter you want to Make sure you’re in ketosis I’m talking About 0.5 to 3 millimoles that would be The level that you want to shoot for now You can also increase those ketones by Doing some other cool things like adding Exercise and adding fasting which I Think you should do as well but the Point is if there’s damage in the brain From this insulin problem and this Glucose problem thank goodness there’s

Another pathway you can actually start Feeding the brain cells so any patient Who has Alzheimer’s must be feeding Their brain cells ketones if they want Any chance of turning things around okay So that’s number one getting on the Ketogenic diet the next thing you need To know about insulin resistance to be Able to fix it is that the frequency of Meals okay the more times you eat and Snack the more you’re going to raise Insulin okay so you also must do Intermittent fasting and if you have Signs of Alzheimer’s okay or you’re at Risk you really need to be on what’s Called omad which is one meal a day that Meal needs to be healthy and it needs to Be big enough and providing you with all The nutrition but allowing your body to Fast for 23 hours is super super Important because you’re going to keep Your insulin low you’re going to Actually start to allow the neurons to Be fed with insulin you’re going to turn Around insulin resistance so much faster So the worse someone has Alzheimer’s the Less frequent they should eat and you Would see a dramatic Improvement if you Did this so one meal a day and make sure That meal is the ketogenic diet well I’m 57 years old I’m six foot two I weigh 185 pounds and I can easily run my body On one meal a day okay I have more Calories but my body does very very well

On that so anyone that is over the age Of 50 really should be considering uh One meal a day simply because we don’t Need so many calories especially if You’re not doing hardcore workouts and If you talk about Alzheimer’s patients Which are not typically active or They’re in a home or Assisted Living I Mean they’re not burning out these Calories to feed them more than one meal A day is completely unnecessary and Unfortunately they’re usually getting Three meals a day plus snacks completely Way too much food because anytime you Have insulin resistance you’re going to Be craving carbs and you’re going to be Hungry all the time But as soon as you do one meal a day you Convert the body over to ketones and the Hunger goes away and the Cravings go Away and it makes it really easy to do And the fourth thing is to make sure That meal is really healthy and nutrient Dense the next thing to know do whatever You can to lower stress stress activates Cortisol another name for cortisol is Glucocorticoids which has to do with Glucose so in other words anytime you Increase cortisol you increase glucose And not because you’re eating sugar just Because your body’s in a stressed state That can create insulin resistance that Can create even diabetes so people that Go through stress chronically or they’re

Taking prednisone or some type of Synthetic cortisone for pain wow it’s Like eating sugar there’s a lot of Things you can do I just want you to get The concept you want to lower this Stress the points I just mentioned are Like a requirement from any plan if You’re trying to turn this Alzheimer’s Around and the next most important video To watch would be that video I did on What to eat okay what would that one Meal a day consist of to be healthy and I put that video up right here check it Out
