Ginkgo boosts brain function.
Ginkgo Biloba is considered a powerhouse in the herbal medicine pharmacopoeia, and its implications for brain health are equally potent. Ginkgo has demonstrated at least 50 distinct health benefits, and its medicinal value is documented in the treatment of more than 100 different diseases.
There are numerous studies on Ginkgo’s ability to stimulate levels of a critical brain protein called BDNF: brain-derived neurotrophic factor. This protein affects healing in damaged regions of the brain and is essential in the regulation, growth and survival of brain cells, making it especially important for long-term memory.
Ginkgo is so effective that a 2006 paper published in the European Journal of Neurology found it to be as useful in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease as the blockbuster drug, Donepezil.
Recently, a new mechanism behind Ginkgo Biloba’s brain healing properties came to light with the publication of an article in Cell and Molecular Neurobiology. Researchers determined that Ginkgo is effective, in part, due to its ability to modulate neural stem cells (NSC’s) into the type of cell that is necessary in the specific region of the brain where the BDNF proteins are active.
NSC’s are multipotent cells; they have the amazing ability to shapeshift into any of the many different phenotypes of cells that make up the brain. Ginkgo stimulates the growth of the right cell phenotype for the affected region of the brain, giving our brain exactly what’s needed, where it’s needed. Now that’s intelligent medicine!

Canola oil is one of the most widely consumed vegetable oils in the world, yet surprisingly little is known about its effects on health. Now, a new study published online December 7 in the journal Scientific Reports by researchers at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University (LKSOM) associates the consumption of canola oil in the diet with worsened memory, worsened learning ability and weight gain in mice which model Alzheimer’s disease. The study is the first to suggest that canola oil is more harmful than healthful for the brain.
“Canola oil is appealing because it is less expensive than other vegetable oils, and it is advertised as being healthy,” explained Domenico Praticò, MD, Professor in the Departments of Pharmacology and Microbiology and Director of the Alzheimer’s Center at LKSOM, as well as senior investigator on the study. “Very few studies, however, have examined that claim, especially in terms of the brain.”
The number of people with Alzheimer’s disease, a degenerative brain disease and the most common form of dementia, will rise by at least 14% in all 50 states over the next eight years. However, the rate of increase will be higher in some states than others, according to a recent report from the Alzheimer’s Association, placing greater financial stress on health care programs and boosting the need for caregivers.
Alaska is projected to have the biggest increase in Alzheimer’s cases, from 7,100 in 2015 to 11,000 in 2017, or a 54.9% jump. Arizona, Nevada, Vermont, and Utah round out the top five with projected increases of at least 40% each. Iowa is expected to have the lowest increase, from 64,000 to 73,000, or 14.1%.
24/7 reviewed the Alzheimer’s Association “2017 Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures” report to find for each state the projected percentage increase in the number of people with Alzheimer’s over the next eight years. States in the West and Southeast are expected to have the largest percentage increases in the number of people with Alzheimer’s between 2017 and 2025.

More info about the importance of vitamin B3:
– High Doses of Vitamins Fight Alzheimer’s Disease (Dec 9, 2008):
Researchers at the University of California at Irvine gave the human dose equivalent of 2,000 to 3,000 mg of vitamin B3 to mice with Alzheimer’s. (2) It worked. Kim Green, one of the researchers, is quoted as saying, “Cognitively, they were cured. They performed as if they’d never developed the disease.”
Researchers from the University of Sydney, Australia believe that nicotinamide (vitamin B3) can be used to prevent the incidence of melanoma, a deadly form of skin cancer. The study, published in Photodermatology, Photoimmunology, and Photomedicine, demonstrates the efficacy of vitamin B3 in reducing or even reversing DNA damage and inflammation caused by ultraviolet radiation. Authors of the review say that more research into the topic is necessary but conclude that should their data be further verified, it could lead to a cheap and potent solution to skin cancer.
The team noted that nicotinamide costs around $10 per month if taken at the recommended dosage of one gram a day. This is significantly less expensive than conventional cancer therapies, which usually include chemotherapy sessions and various forms of medications.
If you have ever heard about turmeric and its benefits and also you are considering whether should start with a cup of warm turmeric water it is time to solve the dilemma and start, because the turmeric is an anti-inflammatory, anti-aging and anti-oxidant spice.
The key of turmeric great healing properties is its compound Curcumin. More than 7000 reviewed scientific articles have proved effectiveness of its.
10 REASONS TO DRINK WARM TURMERIC WATER EVERY MORNING
1.Able to Fight against inflammation
As result of chronic inflammations there are many diseases and it was discovered that curcumin powerful anti-inflammatory properties, fights against inflammation better than some anti-inflammatory drugs.
2.Protects your brain
Researchers have been found that decreased levels of type of growth hormone, Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) often lead to dementia and Alzheimer’s. They also discovered that curcumin has very beneficial effect on level of this hormone and effectively helps in certain brain diseases or age-related brain functions.
with Vitamin C and MSM
Health authorities generally set such low limits for the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of vitamins and minerals that obvious deficiencies in most individuals are avoided but so that these nutrients do not become a threat to the pharmaceutical industry by preventing and curing diseases. In this article I like to show what can be done with higher amounts of vitamin C as pioneered by doctors Linus Pauling, Ewan Cameron, Abram Hoffer and others. The results are even better when combined with MSM (methylsulfonylmethane or dimethylsulfone) and DMSO (dimethylsulfoxide).
There are hundreds of vitamin C articles with positive results published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine (www.orthomed.org) which specializes in vitamin research. In an act of obvious bias the MEDLINE database lists all articles by medical research journals, including Time magazine and Readers’ Digest, but not the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine. Because all these highly positive studies are not indexed by Medline, proponents of drug medicine can claim that there are no studies showing that vitamin C is useful and safe in the treatment of diseases.
I’ve posted this article before.
This article mentions a high dose for strong fungal/Candida problems such as autoimmune diseases, cancer or dementia.
From the article:
“Borax, similar to the equally endangered Lugol’s iodine solution, can also be used to remove accumulated fluoride and heavy metals from the body (14). Fluoride not only causes bones to deteriorate, but also the pineal gland to calcify and the thyroid to become underactive.”

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
“If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we would have found the safest way to health.”
Bread, eggs, milk and meat contain practically NO boron!!!
Meat contains 0,04 mg boron per 100 g.
Milk contains 0,03 mg boron per 100 g.
Eggs contain 0,07 mg boron per 100 g.
Corn Salad (Valerianella Locusta) contains 27,5 – 35 mg boron per 100 g.
Quinces 8,6 -17,4 mg per 100 g.
Dandelion 8,5 -16 mg per 100 g.
Beetroot 2,1 mg per 100 g.
Lapacho contains high amounts of boron.
I see borax as a short-term cure and consider it to be of the utmost importance to rely on a healthy diet as long-term cure and prevention of any and all disease.
If you are drinking green vegetable juices (Carrots, beets, spinach, salad, cucumber etc.) and include herbs like nettles, dandelion, goatweed, chickweed, then you are bombarding the body with vital nutrients in the best and readily available form.

Short version of the article as published in Nexus Magazine (PDF): The Borax-Conspiracy
Full article translated into German (PDF): Die Borax-Verschwörung: Das Aus für die Arthrose-Heilung
For German readers: Arthritis has been wrongly translated as ‘Arthrose’.
Arthritis is Arthritis (=Gelenkentzündung) in German.
You may not be able to imagine that borax, this humble insecticide and laundry detergent, has the potential of singlehandedly bringing down our entire economic system. But you do not need to worry, the danger has been recognised and the necessary steps are already being taken to defuse the situation. I will start with the basics and you will understand what I mean as the story unfolds.
Borax is a naturally occurring mineral commonly mined from dried salt lakes, and is the source of other manufactured boron compounds. The main deposits are in California and Turkey. Chemical names are sodium tetraborate decahydrate, disodium tetraborate decahydrate, or simply sodium borate. This means it contains four atoms of boron as its central feature combined with two sodium atoms and ten molecules (or sometimes less) of crystallisation water – decahydrate means 10 water molecules, pentahydrate 5, and anhydrate or anhydrous borax means no crystallisation water; chemically it is all the same.
Borax is commonly sold as technical or agricultural grade with 99 to 99.5% minimum purity. Potential impurities consist of sodium, potassium, calcium, chloride, bicarbonate, carbonate, sulphate and phosphate but not toxic or heavy metals. This grade includes the borax commonly used as household cleaner. Pharmaceutical grade is not noticeably purer or better.
