Shirley Gutkowski, the owner of Primal Air along with her co-host Dr. Shalom Samuel of Shalom Family Chiropractors brings a new episode of The Spot for health. The topic of the episode is Alzheimer’s prevention which is a sequel to their previous episode. The guest of the show is Angie Stone who is a longevity expert and Certified Dementia Practitioner. They discussed how you can prevent Alzheimer’s and how Dr. Bredesen’s book is helpful for Alzheimer’s prevention.
Alzheimer’s is a multi-factorial disease. The biggest factor to prevent Alzheimer is to get enough sleep. The glymphatic system helps the brain to clear all the toxins from the body. Sleeping with allergies increases the chances of mouth breathing and snoring. Sleep apnea can cost a lot more than just your sleep.
The other big factor affecting the brain and causing Alzheimer’s disease is sugar. You need to take natural sugars like xylitol and erythritol instead of sugar substitutes or lab-based sugar. Studies show that daily intake of erythritol will improve carotid flexibility
Angie Stone gave some suggestions before going to bed; she says not to eat anything at least 3 hours before you go to bed. The body sends everything in its belly to digest food. The brain part is being neglected if we eat just before going to bed.
We need the help of a chiropractor to align body parts and maintain the blood flow of the brain to the rest of the body. The connection of the brain to the rest of the body is through the nerves like when you want to move your leg forward; the leg sends the message to the brain.
You might have heard Grandmas in the United States saying shut your mouth but nobody knows the physiological consequences of mouth open breathing or chewing with an open mouth. Your chances to prevent Alzheimer’s increase when you learn to correct these habits at a younger age.
They also talked about trishaw rides, what people do wrong in the gym and airway, and how can you self-assess your tongue and uvula.
