“All disease begins in the gut.”
A toxin produced by gut bacteria sets off a chain reaction in the brain that leads to Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases. And what you put in your mouth can control it.
Of all the diseases that strike fear into the human heart as we grow older, Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia probably rank at the top. Arthritis causes people to lose mobility and strength; diabetes can cause the loss of eyesight or even a limb; heart disease and cancer can cause the loss of years of life expectancy. But dementia causes the loss of oneself. All the faculties, personality characteristics and memories that make us who we are, are gradually – and in some cases rapidly – stripped away, as dementia ravages the brain of the afflicted person, leaving their loved ones with just the husk of the individual they knew.
