Last time we talked about inflammation and the blood brain barrier. We recommend you use GABA to help diagnose inflammation and loss of integrity of the barrier that leads to degeneration.
If you find that your brain is deteriorating, what can be done? First I will mention that we are talking about restoring health to your brain. You will not find a drug in your PDR that will stop and reverse brain inflammation and degeneration. You will need to address this from a natural point of view.
Next time we will briefly discuss cutting out gluten, trans fats and sugars to help your brain heal. We will also mention some supplements that can boost vitamin D and glutathione.
Before any of that can work however, you will need to have a stable blood sugar supply and proper blood pressure.
Low blood pressure is often associated with hypothyroid problems. We recommend you work with a qualified health care professional to get your thyroid levels managed however that needs to be done. Many find that Integrative Therapeutics Cortisol Manager used several times a day can raise blood pressure. You might have to add some non-iodized sea salt with meals to speed that process. High blood pressure can be from many factors so we will leave that for another day.
The intestinal barrier is the first line of defense. Your brain depends on healthy intestinal function. Therefore you will first stop introducing foods that can damage your intestines. The most common offending agent is gluten or the storage protein of wheat, rye, barley, oats and corn. When you get serious about your brain you will want to know more about how gluten can kill you. Alcohol, sugar, trans fats will also conspire to disrupt this intestinal integrity.
Cutting out these foods is essential but not enough. You will also need to give your body some help.
We recommend products like Integrative Therapeutics Glutamine Forte and NuMedica Immuno-G. Integrative Therapeutics Glutamine Forte contains nutrients that can help restore intestinal health. Vitamin D is also critical for this repair. We have upped our recommended dose to as much as 10,000 IU's day in many cases. We want to get blood levels up to 70 or 80. Most people who have barrier problems can't get past 45 even with 5000 IU's day. Look for Pure Encapsulations D3 10,000. Some prefer a liquid and Micellized D3 will do the trick for those people.
The next piece of the puzzle is glutathione. Glutathione is key to the entire anti-oxidant process. It activates other anti-oxidants like Vitamin E, Vitamin C and Co-enzyme Q10. Good evidence shows that damage to the body from heavy metals does not occur until the glutathione levels of the body are depleted. Problem is most people's glutathione levels drop off dramatically with age. This is part of the reason why so many more things go wrong when you are 70 as compared to 50 years old.
