When rich charities deliberately back the wrong horse, something fishy must be going on….

Do you donate to the Alzheimer’s society?

Have B12 injections and folate helped your declining memory like it did mine?

Not all of us with B12 deficiency experience cognitive decline but it was my most terrifying symptom. Those of us who access frequent B12 injections and correct folate supplementation can manage to repair the nerves of our brains. We are proof of the fact that our cognitive decline has halted or completely reversed with this safe effective, inexpensive treatment.

So why is this charity ignoring B12 and other B vitamins as a treatment for Alzheimer’s?

Read what Jerome Burne has to say about the coverage of a new drug for Alzheimer’s which was touted as “First treatment to slow Alzheimer’s disease unveiled in landmark breakthrough,”  

Do you believe there is a new drug for Alzheimer’s just over the horizon? That there is no truth in the popular idea that B vitamins might cut your risk of getting this dreadful disease?

Well you are wrong on both counts but it’s not your fault, you’ve quite reasonably fallen for some very sophisticated marketing. Let me explain.

You will be amazed at how tiny the benefit a drug needs to have to be hailed as a breakthrough and how ruthlessly a smokescreen of shoddy trials can be used to obscure the truth about the potential benefits of B vitamins.

This is not biased ignorant pharma bashing; it’s a reasonable conclusion from what has been happening. For instance, compare the enthusiastic way a new drug is greeted, with the low key response to research showing that cheap vitamins might do the job.

….and what GP Margaret McCartney has to say via the BMJ; 

This is no breakthrough. How did this paper score such extraordinary publicity?

And yet, this Refsum & Smith journal –  Low vitamin B-12 status in confirmed Alzheimer’s disease as revealed by serum holotranscobalamin, states: 

Our findings have direct clinical relevance as they provide evidence that subjects with Alzheimer’s disease often have impaired cobalamin status, something that can readily be corrected by treatment with vitamin B-12.

If you are not yet convinced about the power of B12 injections…Here’s a couple more research papers for you;

Cognitive impairment and vitamin B12: a review which concludes; Low serum vitamin B12 levels are associated with neurodegenerative disease and cognitive impairment.

Relationship of cognitive function with B vitamin status, homocysteine and tissue factor pathway inhibitor in cognitively impaired elderly: a cross-sectional survey. Which finds:
Elevated homocysteine (Hcy) levels have been associated with an increased risk of cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease (AD).

Please read Jerome Burne’s full article where you’ll find more evidence of ignoring B vitamins in relation to cognitive decline.

It seems the Alzheimer’s society are keen to look at ginkgo biloba as an ‘alternative therapy’ but are not fussed about looking into vitamin B12 despite the glaringly obvious and abundant information that many provide both scientifically and anecdotally. Completely nut’s isn’t it? 

If you want to learn the truth about how B12 injections can transform your life if you are deficient, please have a good look around the site and perhaps consider joining one of my regular Zoom courses.

    Alzheimer’s organizations have also tried to shoot down interest in the medium chain fatty acid found in coconut oil which appears to circumvent insulin resistance of the brain. Let’s be clear; there is good peer-reviewed evidence that points to insulin resistance in Alzheimer dementia. There is also the heroic effort of private physician Mary T Newsome M.D. to gather information and test, on a tiny scale, the results of coconut oil and MCT oil on dementia. Are they offering Dr. Newsome money? Are they raising heaven and hell to try to get awareness and funding?

    You guessed it. No, to both questions.
