Alzheimer’s – Disease or Deficiency
Could it be that “diseases” of the brain are really just “deficiencies” of the brain? The answer could be a simple “yes” according mounting evidence. Lacking vital nutrients over time–depletes the body and the effects are often subtle–yet devastating. If you know anyone who is mood or memory challenged, the road to recovery is very illusive. What if the answer to better brain function might be simpler than we think?
The role of super nutrition is now playing a vital role in the prevention of brain degeneration. The brain takes the brunt when it comes to a few key nutrients that are severely lacking in most peoples diet. Even with the attempts of the government to protect us–we now face a crisis of epidemic proportions when it comes debilitating brain diseases that may be preventable.
How do we ensure that we are getting what we need? Well, if you are eating the “traditional” healthy diet, chances are, your are not meeting the demand. Most people are severely lacking in vital nutrients, especially healthy fats. Adding superfoods to your diet is an excellent way to boost your nutrition and protect against disease. Even fresh, organic produce is coming from increasingly depleted soils, leaving our current supply of whole foods lacking in basic nutrients.

According to Dr. Mercola, “Scientists are beginning to realize vitamin D is involved in maintaining the health of your brain, as they’ve recently discovered vitamin D receptors in your brain, spinal cord, and central nervous system. (In fact, there are 36 organ tissues in your body whose cells respond biologically to vitamin D, including bone marrow, breast, colon, intestine, kidney, lung, prostate, retina, skin, stomach and uterine tissues.)”
There are more known receptor sites for Vitamin D in the human body than ANY other nutrient!
University of Wisconsin uncovered strong links between low levels of vitamin D in Alzheimer’s patients and poor outcomes on cognitive tests.

There are much higher incidences of depression in areas with less sunlight exposure.
Just 10-15 minutes of sunlight on exposed skin gives you up to 15,000 IU! That is well above what the body needs. The body stores vitamin D–so you don’t necessarily need to get exposure daily. Soak it up whenever you can… Give your cells what they are screaming for: the gift of light! Your body will thank you–and so will your children when–you can remember their names when you get older.
Vitamin D supplements are an attempt to fool the body. Unfortunately, isolated chemicals cannot be understood and absorbed by the body and may even create more imbalances. Go to the source! Skip the laboratory chemical isolates. Connect to the real, natural elements that give your body what is really needs to heal and thrive! The human body is more like a plant than a machine. It requires sunlight! Remember, you can’t fool Mother Nature!
The further people live from the equator–the higher the rate of auto immune disorders.
