Alzheimer’s or Brain Diabetes?

Alzheimer's Brian Diabetes

A growing body of research suggests there’s a powerful connection between your diet and your risk of Alzheimer’s disease via similar pathways that cause type 2 diabetes.

Back in 2005, a published medical paper introduced a new disease tentatively dubbed “type 3 diabetes”.

The researchers learned that, in addition to the pancreas, your brain also produces insulin.

They discovered that without the insulin your brain cells will die.

A drop in insulin production in your brain may contribute to the degeneration of your brain cells, and studies have found that people with lower levels of insulin and insulin receptors in their brain often have Alzheimer’s disease.

Studies since 2005 have continually documented that insulin has a much greater role in the brain than previously expected.

Insulin is directly responsible for neuron glucose-uptake, and the regulation of neurotransmitters like acetylcholine, which are crucial for memory and learning.

Scientists have come to understand that cognition is impaired when insulin levels are reduced.

The clinical research has made it quite clear that the same pathological process that leads to insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes may also hold true for your brain.

The take away from these studies make a strong point that the over-consumption of sugars and “grains” which are also detrimental to the the development of diabetes may also result in Type 3 Diabetes (brain diabetes).

When the brain becomes overwhelmed by the consistently high levels of glucose, the insulin signaling will eventually become blunted or desensitized. This will lead to impairments in your thinking and memory abilities, eventually causing permanent brain damage.

Healthcare clinicians trained in functional medicine have the training and knowledge to investigate what is at the root of the pathological process that leads to Type 2 diabetes and the new diagnosis of Type 3 diabetes.

The one size fits all approach of prescriptive medications for diabetes, although of some value, will not shut down the physiological cascade of the consequences of poor sugar/insulin control.

“Get Your Life Back” Reason 6

10 reasons why you need to attend this very informative presentation

 

Reason 6: The foods you’re eating may not only be the cause, but can be destroying your Thyroid.

The very food you are eating on a daily basis may not only be the cause of your Thyroid condition, but can even be destroying Thyroid tissue. This destruction of the Thyroid will lead to Thyroid disease. Research shows that some foods resemble Thyroid tissue molecularly. This means if you have immunity against certain foods which you may not know of and continue eating those foods, your immune system will turn around and begin to attack your Thyroid leading to health complications.

Reason 4: If you do have a thyroid disease and don’t know about it, it’s making you sick.

 

You may have a thyroid disease that has gone under the radar and has not been diagnosed. This is the worst position to be in, because if your Thyroid is what’s making you sick and you don’t know about it, then no matter how much medication you take for another condition, it will never help you get better. For example, if you suffer from high cholesterol and are taking meds to control it, but you have an undiagnosed Thyroid condition, your cholesterol issues will not go away. Eventually high cholesterol leads to serious complications. Restoring Thyroid health will lower cholesterol naturally without Medication.

What Is Gluten Reactivity Anyway???

Gluten-Reactivity_Hydra

Gluten-Reactivity is a systemic (whole body) autoimmune condition with many different manifestations. What is an autoimmune condition? It is a condition in which your own body is attacking itself with its own Immune (defense) system. Celiac disease or gluten sensitive enteropathy (gastrointestinal disease) is only one, of a range of possible manifestations of reactivity to gluten. Celiac’s disease, because it is the most commonly known manifestations of Gluten-Reactivity, receives the most attention to the point of ignoring all the other manifestations that can arise. What are other manifestations that can arise from a gluten reactivity, you ask? Well, here is a short list in the very, very long list of manifestations; Depression, Fibromyalgia, arthritis, joint pain, memory loss, brain fog, brain degeneration, headaches and so on. Autoimmune disease is the third leading cause of death in the industrialized world, which includes diseases such as; Crohn’s, Diabetes, Hypo/Hyper Thyroidism and SLE to name a few. Autoimmune disease is 10 times more common in a person with Gluten-Reacivity compared to the general population. So we can see that the burden on our society from Gluten-Reactivity cannot be overlooked. Early identification of this plaguing condition can result in earlier treatment, better quality of life and an improved prognosis. Some will say “but I feel fine eating what I eat now”, to those people I would say so did everyone else who has a disease now, but didn’t back then. Let’s help prevent illness and disease by becoming aware now.

Yours In Health, Dr. Cornejo
