“Climbing a mountain without a backpack, without pneumonia, and after a healthy breakfast is like coming out of Alzheimer’s after detox, after controlling the pathogens and fueling your nerves for regeneration.”
– Dr. Thomas Janossy
2016 – The Breakthrough Year for Alzheimer’s Disease
Recent research is demonstrating more and more clearly that the medical philosophy, which claims that our mental health problems are mostly determined by genetics and other mysterious biological factors, does not paint the correct picture.
As a remarkable recent development, the prestigious Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease finally reported the role of a long list of infectious agents in Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) causation in April, 2016.
‘Officially’, the Brain Protocol is still a theory only until a randomized, placebo controlled clinical trial is conducted with hundreds of study participants and published in a peer reviewed scientific journal. Most individuals or caregivers rejoice by experiencing the improvements without showing any interest in joining a study. We understand this. However, we highly value if experiences are shared with us, especially if before and after tests quantify the improvements routinely reported.
(Please, send your experiences to firstname.lastname@example.org – thank you.)
Certainly, the knowledge that infection agents are involved in Alzheimer’s was known already for many years in the alternative medical community, and had already been the basis for the development of several successful Alzheimer’s protocols.While this report signifies a milestone in the deeper understanding of AD, it is important to note that scientific tunnel vision still prevails. One reason is that microbiologists and toxicologists conduct research correspondence in very different circles. Researchers today don’t like or don’t feel comfortable communicating meaningfully with other researchers outside of their narrow scope. This was more common fifty or a hundred years ago.
Fully comprehensive, Alzheimer’s focused brain research has also been delayed over the past decades due to pharmaceutical companies only focus on man-made, synthetic compounds (all drugs are toxic to the neurons as they are not nutrients), due to various popular groups, including the ‘coconut oil/ketogenic diet group’, demanding more attention to their narrow interests than they really deserve among research groups seeking to find a cure for Alzheimer’s. Others overemphasize the importance of one or more supplements and ignore other key aspects of brain health such as the calcification of the brain (surprisingly ignored by most), the bio-accumulation of toxins in the brain (routinely ignored even if aluminum and others metals are associated with brain disease) or the the latent pathogenic microbes such as fungal pathogens feeding inside the neurons. How much Alzheimer’s disease is fueled by pathogenic biofilms is (almost) never talked about.
ApoE genotyping is sometimes used as an adjunct test to aid in the diagnosis of dementia and Alzheimer Disease but the likely biggest reason, the greatly decreased mercury, lead and other metals’ detoxification capabilities of the brain is not pointed out Those with APO-E4/APO-E3 and with APO-E4/APO-E4 allotype proteins in the cerebral spinal fluid are poor excretors of mercury, lead and other metals. These have the highest affinity for becoming ill from the bio-accumulation of toxic heavy metals and should extend their detoxification and build into their life a continuous detoxification to avoid Alzheimer’s and other dementia. People with APO-E4/APO-E4 have an 80% chance of getting Alzheimer’s disease. Research has also shown that autistic children strongly-tend to have APO-E4 protein.
Sometimes it seems that there is an invisible wall separating the three main groups, the first one living in the world of prescription drugs, the second, listing food supplements as the solution for everything in the brain, and the third group advocating the removal of the toxins and pathogens before everything else is considered.
As mainstream medical thinking is slowly catching up, another breakthrough study published in Aging in June, 2016 titled ‘Reversal of Cognitive Decline in Alzheimer’s Disease’, listed a few ‘hand picked’ patients who experienced significant improvements. However, while there were unprecedented improvements reported in a few patients, others didn’t respond so well. We believe that the superiority of our 10 Step Remove/Rebuild Brain Protocol is based on the deeper understanding of the neuron-physiological degeneration of the brain leading to pathological changes. This deeper understanding fills the gaps other brain protocols often leave open by offering only an unbalanced approach.
Likely, the most rewarding aspect of our Brain Protocol is that it delivers unusually positive results without having an individualized protocol that would require a strong oversight by a specialist. This type of freedom empowers those living in a small village, far from a specialist, or for a city dweller lacking the funds to pay the doctor (and rather put those funds towards actual products instead). The status quo rejects this type of decentralized freedom as successful lobbying resulted in government enforced privilege where medical knowledge is sold for profit.
Could Most Brain Disorders Have Similar Causes?
Dr. Thomas Janossy, a former neuroscientist, had a theory that all brain disorders are basically the same with a few exceptions which are genetically induced such as Downs’s syndrome, or which are caused by trauma to the brain.
According to him, the clinical differences in brain disorders are caused only by some variations within the toxic synergy, pathogenic synergy and the specificity in nutritional imbalances in the brain that effect different parts of the brain, often with characteristic clinical symptoms.Damage to the brain’s neurons in the frontal and temporal lobes causes forms of dementia called frontotemporal dementia. When the middle third of cortex has decreased blood flow, its typically associated with Alzheimer’s disease or pre-Alzheimer’s disease in the younger generation. When the back third of the cortex has reduced blood flow, its associated with Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), hallmark of Parkinson’s disease, but often found in Alzheimer’s disease.
The downward spiral usually starts by changes in the gut flora as toxins accumulate and inflammation is triggered, resulting in a weakened immune system that gives a chance for the pathogenic microbes to get the upper hand.
Chances are that whenever the cause of a mental illness is unknown, the focus should be on toxic synergy and pathogenic synergy as the most likely causes. The outstanding results of our protocol further reinforces that this novel approach deals with the real causes.
The Brain Protocol – The 10 Steps in Detail
The protocol is a ‘full protocol’ that covers most aspects of brain health.
The three parts ensure the
(I) elevated energy levels in the neurons (coconut oil/ketogenic diet) as the
(II) removal of toxins and infectious microbes is underway and as the
(III) rebuilding of the neurons is supported
Noteworthy aspects of our Brain Protocol are the following:
- targets all of the toxins for removal
- opens up the pathogenic biofilm communities for increased access by the immune system and by herbal antibiotics and other anti-microbials to eliminate the sheltered microbes
- de-calcifies the body for improved microcirculation, nutrient uptake and waste removal
- removes toxins and heals leaky gut, rebuilds healthy microbes in the gut
- rebalances nutritional deficiencies by providing the necessary brain micronutrients for the neurons
- supercharges the immune system
- boosts the number and quality of circulating stem cells and
- lengthens the telomere
- sets the aging clock back
1) Provide and Maintain Extra Energy for Nerve Cell’s Mitochondria with Ketogenic Diet
Extra energy is maintained by the ketogenic diet to support both the detoxification and brain rebuilding parts of the protocol. Coconut oil and MCT oil (medium-chain triglyceride, 60% of it is coconut oil) produces significantly more energy than glucose. Ketogenic diet is maintained while the protocol is followed since the triglycerides give fuel for the nerve cells independently from insulin or the health of insulin receptors in the brain. Under-performing nerve cells can regain some of their functions on a ketogenic diet. Ketons help with the production of more ATP, the energy units in mitochondria, than glucose. Full detoxification and rebuilding is needed for increasing the chances of brain recovery, realistically achieved only if the toxic and microbial load is lessened. It is unreasonable to expect that the brain would regain healthy functioning on its own without outside help.
2) Toxic Synergy – Toxin Removal
Increasingly, it’s recognized that higher toxic levels are linked to chronic diseases as we try to function with 80.000 man-made chemicals in the environment, 700 contaminants in the average adult and 200+ industrial chemicals and pollutants in the umbilical cord blood in the newborn. The difference, the 500 extra toxins are picked up over a lifetime.
More than half of the 700 toxins have neurotoxic effects.
The specific neuronal damaging effect of the bio-accumulated toxin, such as mercury, lead, or pesticides, the actual amount of the most damaging toxins, and the synergistic interactions between these toxins trigger a series of cascading events that leads to the manifestations of a well-defined brain disease later on or actually several diseases at the same time. Both EDTA and Glutathione should be key components for a deep-cellular, systemic detoxification program when all of the toxins, including neurotoxins are targeted for removal at the same time.
Our protocol targets all of the toxins for removal.
Most toxins are neurotoxins and should be eliminated from the brain. ToxDetox is the first and only product currently on the market worldwide that has both EDTA and Glutathione in highly effective synergy, resulting in the excretion of over three times more toxins (3.8X) than with EDTA alone or Glutathione alone. Mercury, lead, aluminum, pesticides, fungicides and in fact all toxins are excreted with the help of EDTA and Glutathione.
The normal and natural detoxification of the brain happens overnight.
By supporting this natural process, more toxins can be removed and safer than with a daytime detoxification.
It is not widely known, yet the most important innate compounds for the natural detoxification of the brain are melatonin and Glutathione. Actually, it is quite interesting that melatonin triggers increased level of Glutathione.
However, in every chronic conditions, including all of the neurodegenerative diseases, the level of Glutathione is low or extremely low (such as in Parkinson’s).
Glutathione 1.5 (strongest ever, 1500 mg reduced glutathione) is widely used to improve Parkinson’s patients instead of intravenous (IV) Glutathione.
While Glutathione is the body’s most important antioxidant, used up also to fight free radicals, the supplemental Glutathione also boosts the immune system.
It remains yet another mystery why, but most Alzheimer’s specialists and brain protocols ignore de-calcification.
Alzheimer’s patients have been observed to have a higher degree of pineal gland calcification than patients with other types of dementia, and sleep disturbances have been identified as an early marker for Alzheimer’s disease pathogenesis. Besides the pineal gland, the brain’s primary structures are also negatively affected by calcification, namely the habenula, choroids plexus, superior sagittal sinus, basal ganglia, falx, dura mater, and tentorium cerebelli, as well as the petroclinoid ligaments.
Two-thirds of the adult population has calcified pineal gland, reducing this gland’s ability to create melatonin. Low melatonin levels drive Glutathione levels down and this could explain while Alzheimer’s patients have both low melatonin and low Glutathione levels.
Calcification happens everywhere as calcium phosphate crystals build up in various parts of the body that is caused primarily by nanobacteria but also by Chlamydia. By building calcium phosphate shells around themselves, bacteria enhances its protection from the immune system.
The human pineal gland is outside the blood-brain barrier and this could be the reason why pathogenic microbes can attack it earlier than other parts of the brain.
De-calcification of the pineal gland and in fact the brain and the whole body is a key part of our Brain Protocol, accomplished together with our anti-biofilm strategies.
4) Pathogenic Synergy – Anti-Biofilm Strategies
All of us, without exception, have circulating microbes, viruses and fungi in our blood. However, the symptoms are not prevalent while the immune system is strong.Usually microbes remain dormant over many years, however, reactivation can occur after stress, when the immune system is suppressed or during aging. This reactivation is similar to the appearance of herpesvirus under stress.
Likewise, all of us, without exception, have cancer cells in our body but the immune system is able to eliminate and kill those cancer cells (apoptosis). The question is only the combination and specificity of the microbes that emerge when the immune system becomes weak.
Microbes prefer to work together in synergy, called pathogenic synergy, to weaken their host.
In chronic conditions most microbes favor living in biofilm communities that give extra protection for them both from the host’s immune system and the antibiotics or any other herbal supplements targeting them.
This pathogenic synergy results in the production of neurotoxins that further accelerates the cascading events the synergistic toxins initiated. Biotoxins, produced by pathogenic microorganisms, are usually more toxic than man-made ones. It is well known, especially by Lyme patients, that biofilm communities are highly resistant to (herbal or synthetic) antibiotics.
Biofilm is such a major concern that we developed a novel anti-biofilm protocol that is widely embraced by Lyme patients and others struggling with a biofilm related chronic condition.
Pathogenic synergy can’t be treated in a piecemeal fashion, but rather, as one condition, with one approach that targets simultaneously all of the pathogenic microbes. Otherwise, we might give chance for a microbe over another infectious agent, similarly when Candida often flares up as an antibiotic is taken.
Other protocols routinely ignore it but our protocol also targets parasites since these pathogens can also cause memory loss cognitive decline.
Beta-Amyloid Plaques: Natural Antibiotic to Protect the Brain from Infections
As a stunning rehabilitation of beta-amyloid (Aβ), the ‘bad boy’ hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease that thought to cause neuronal damage, Harvard researchers describe its role as a natural antibiotic. Aβ forms insoluble aggregates in the brains of patients with AD and its propensity for aggregation are still widely viewed as intrinsically abnormal. However, in new work, Kumar et al. show that Aβ is a natural antibiotic that protects the brain from infection. Most surprisingly, Aβ aggregates trap and imprison bacterial pathogens.
And according to study author Rudolph E. Tanzi, Ph.D., of Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, “each plaque had a single bacterium at its center.” Mice that didn’t produce beta-amyloid were at greater risk of dying from the infection and did not have any plaques in their brains.
Brain Micronutrients, Gut/Microbiome, Stem Cell/Telomere Boost, Diet, Fast, Exercise
The third part of the protocol gives relieve to the brain as the toxic and microbial load is lessened. It is unreasonable to expect that the brain would regain healthy functioning on its own without outside help.
5) Brain Micronutrients – Nutritional Imbalances
While the bio-accumulated toxins often damage disproportionally certain specific organs or cell groups, even in the brain, they also hinder the absorption of key nutrients from the gut by either occupying receptor sites or by producing a high level of free radicals that contribute to permanently high inflammation in the gut and in fact in the whole body, including the brain.
As the pathways for the absorption of nutrients from the gut to the cells are disrupted, the cells, including neurons, cannot get the required nutrients and start losing their ability to maintain the required homeostasis, necessary for survival.
A poor diet can lead to a range of nutritional deficiencies. Common nutritional deficiencies include magnesium, zinc, iodine, vitamin D (should be taken together with vitamin K2), omega 3, B vitamins and selenium.
The Brain Protocol picked the most studied nutraceutical providing well balanced brain micronutrients. EMPowerplus Advanced is a remarkable supplement for brain health and wellbeing.
6) Healthy Microbes in the Gut
A healthy body depends on healthy microbes in the gut. The good bacteria in the gut protect us from infections, break down the nutrients, produce vitamins, and maintain life. Once the toxins and the pathogenic microbes damage the healthy microbes in the gut, Candida, parasites and other opportunistic pathogens get out of control. As the first layer of protection, the wall of the gut is breached (leaky gut), both the toxins and pathogenic microbes have suddenly access to the whole body, with far reaching consequences. Without a healthy gut there is no healthy immune system and no healthy brain. The Brain Protocol supports the formulation and maintenance of the healthy microbes. To reverse this process, the toxic load inside the lumen of the gut should be reduced, Candida and parasites killed, inflammation reduced, and good bacteria replenished.
7) Stem Cell/Telomere Boost
Elevated level of circulating stem cells in the blood and longer telomeres are the hallmarks of longevity and important for brain health.
Strangely, companies often urge their customers to take the stem cell enhancing products for life without any concerns about the weakening and depletion of the bone marrow over time. While the ability of Stem Enhance or other similar products to produce a sustained release of stem cells over the years has never been shown. Furthermore, the medical literature on aphanizomenon flos-aquae (blue-green algae) revealed that 97 of 99 bottles of blue-green algae analyzed by independent researchers have been found to contain a microtoxin capable of causing liver failure. The most concerning toxins are the hepatotoxic mycrocystines that accumulate in adults and passed on to their offspring. Clearly, there has to be a better way. And there is.
Our new theory was simple. What if the bone marrow is detoxified to support the production and maintenance of healthier stem cells – with longer telomeres. Thus, StemDetox was born, and became our bestselling product.
8) Ketogenic diet and Calorie Restriction
Prolonged states of decreased glucose availability induces ketosis, a natural physiologic state. It is triggered by severe caloric restriction or when carbohydrate intake falls below 20-30 grams (most of the current low carbohydrate diets are nowhere near this level of restriction).
A ketogenic diet requires 50 to 80 percent of calories coming from special fats such as coconut oil, MCT oil, with carbohydrate and protein restriction. This forces the body to shift toward using ketones as its primary fuel source, instead of glucose.
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are made up of medium-chain fatty acids with 6 to 12 carbons. The “medium” refers to the length of their chemical structure. Short-chain fats (e.g. butyric acid) have fewer than 6 carbons and long-chain fats (for example, the long-chain polyunsaturated fats EPA and DHA) have 13 to 21. MTCs are so powerful that adding them to your diet can actually increase the number of carbs you can eat while staying in ketosis. They are the ultimate ketogenic fat.
There are many benefits for reduced calorie intake (by 25% or more). Calorie restriction modifies some risk factors for age-related diseases and influences indicators associated with longer life span.
Calorie restriction significantly lowers several cardiovascular risk factors, lowers levels of the inflammatory marker C-reactive protein and decreases insulin resistance, an indicator of diabetes risk – all factors supporting brain health. Alzheimer’s is also called the Type III diabetes.
9) Extend Overnight Fast
Benefits of fasting is numerous and well documented.
Extended overnight fasting also triggers ketosis and this provides the basis of our recommendation that food should be consumed only between 10am and 6pm.
10) Exercise: Intermittent Cardio and Weight Training
Observe a young child carelessly playing in a kinder garden. The child often runs from one toy to the next one, actually doing intermittent cardio that is healthy and builds up the muscles, joints and bones.
Even if there is no time for the gym, isometric exercise can be done anywhere as various muscle groups are repeatedly contracted without actually moving an arm or leg. You can sit in your car or in your office and could pull in your stomach repeatedly or tighten various muscle groups such as pushing your knees together or push against an unmovable object for two times 10 minutes daily. This is called isometric exercise when no movement is visible, yet you do exercise. There are many benefits, including the release of IGF1 and TGF1 that triggers the regeneration of the brain, including the hippocampus, a brain area extremely critical for learning and short term memory, especially vulnerable to damage (brain shrinkage) at early stages of Alzheimer’s disease. By using medical terms, Growth Factors are critical for brain plasticity and for promotingcell survival, neurogenesis, differentiation, axon outgrowth, dendritic growth and maturation, synaptogenesis, and activity-dependent synaptic pruning.
Why Now? – Brain is Damaged Over 20 Years Before Symptoms
The blood-brain barrier is part of the immune system, specific for the brain. While the star-shaped astrocytes have an executive-coordinating role in the brain, their activity is also linked to the maintenance of healthy blood flow and the blood-brain barrier and they are also tasked to repair and replace damaged neurons.In early 2016 Prof. Agneta Nordberg of the Karolinska Institute of Sweden reported in the journal Brain that astrocyte activation, the ‘damage control’ peaks and then goes into decline roughly 20 years before the expected symptoms of Alzheimer’s appear.In contrast, the accumulation of amyloid plaques constantly increase over time until clinical symptoms show.
Consequently, it’s being stipulated that the level of toxins (environmental or bacterial neurotoxins) reach a critically high level that damages the neurons in the brain about 20 years before Alzheimer’s is diagnosed. Furthermore, it’s increasingly assumed that the earliest damage to the brain might be associated with very mild dementia or headache and these still small changes should actually signal the need for a robust preventative brain protocol.
Our 10 Steps To Remove/Rebuild Brain Protocol was also developed to be used as a tool to avoid chronic, neurodegenerative conditions, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. The earlier is the removal of the toxins, the pathogens, the calcification and the earlier is the rebuilding of the brain, the better are the chances for the maintenance of healthy brain and aging without the occurrences of neurodegenerative diseases.
What to Take? (over 3 months)
based on our Anti-Biofilm Protocol with added, brain supporting supplements
Take coconut oil every day to increase the energy level of neurons. Start slowly, with about a half or a full tablespoons daily of coconut oil in your soup, smoothy or any other food since about one in four persons have some digestive problems, maybe diarrhea, when they start taking it if they take too much too soon. Take it with food to reduce the possibility of these problems. The goal is to reach about daily four to six tablespoons.
Coconut oil could be added to oatmeal since at room temperature coconut oil is solid in its consistency. Two tablespoons equal about 35 ml or 35 grams that yields changes in behavior in dementia or Alzheimer’s. Build it up slowly to about ten tablespoons when the brain damage is severe. Coconut oil has the peak effects about three hours after consumption and the ketons are provided for six or seven hours long. It doesn’t really matter if its refined or unrefined, virgin or not virgin, organic or not organic, you would get the same effects on the brain as the ketons are the same in all type of coconut oils. However, organic is preferred and unrefined has more nutrients in it. But refined is usually deodorized and this is a better choice for those who don’t like the taste and odor of coconut oil. If you cook with it, use medium heat, 350 Fahrenheit or less, to avoid it to smoke and to avoid altering the fat. It melts at about 75 to 76 degrees, below this temperature it becomes solid.
For breakfast you could cook your eggs in it, add into a smoothy, or for lunch you could add into a soup. Coconut milk, maybe with an equal part coconut water could be mixed and added to a smoothy or used instead of cow milk as the consistency is quite similar, yet contains ketons, five ounces from this mix delivers about a tablespoon of coconut oil. By eating a third cup of coconut flakes, often eaten as snacks without anything else, you get about a tablespoon coconut oil. Finely shredded coconut flakes could be put into yogurt.
Coconut flour has some carbohydrates in it but its 75% fiber. Great for wheat free brownies, cookies, and its gluten free.
MCT oil actually delivers more ketons to nerve cells much faster as the levels peak in about 90 minutes but the levels also drop faster and disappear in three hours. The max safe temperature to cook with it is lower, about 320 Fahrenheit. MCT oil is odorless and tasteless, can be used for salad dressing. MCT oil is thermogenic, increases body temperature, and is used for weight loss, especially in Japan. And in the U.S, its used by body builders to increase body mass as muscle uses the MCT oil directly.
Ideally, both coconut oil and MCT oil should be used to get their benefits. An option is to mix them together at home, half and half. This mix remains liquid at room temperature.
Consider taking StemDetox for two months and at that time switch over to Prevent.Pro. When finished with the first month of StemDetox, introduce ToxDetox (Glutathione and EDTA synergy) chelation suppositories while continuing to take StemDetox. Take ToxDetox every second night for a minimum two months, depending on age, medical history, toxic exposure and your chronic challenges. Keep taking Prevent.Pro every day, after the course of StemDetox is completed.
Take 1 gram (4 capsules) StopReabsorb/Charcoal daily from day one. Daily charcoal increased laboratory rats’ healthy life-span by an extra 40%. Daily charcoal is the best kept secret for good health and longevity and it’s not interfering with nutrient uptake (otherwise, the rats couldn’t have a 40% longer healthy life). There is no evidence or study showing that charcoal robs the body from nutrients.
Drink your two teaspoons of baking soda (or pure bicarbonate powder) in a glass of water, with some lemon or lime juice to add flavor, twice daily between meals.
Drink 10ml (5ml in the morning and 5ml in the afternoon) Flavin 7 Gold daily. There is 200ml a bottle.
Take EMPowerPlus Advanced every day.
Extend your night fast by eating only between 10am to 6pm. Enjoy your fast! (You will also lose some weight as an extra bonus.) Have your morning 5ml Flavin 7 Gold with a few cups of (organic) green tea instead of breakfast. Eat for lunch sauerkraut (full with prebiotic, probiotic and healthy bulk) and maybe an apple with almond cream and more green tea.
Take your multi with your Omega 3 and Vitamin D3, as usual. Omega 3 could be replaced by Krill oil that is omega 3 plus astaxhantine (no worries though – we have astaxhantine in StemDetox).
The ‘success’ of this powerful protocol is mainly dependent on your ability and willingness to go through the steps and persevere. There is nothing more liberating than changing around your life for the better.
