Let’s talk about dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. A lot of Alzheimer’s disease research is focused on getting rid of amyloid plaquing. But we may have been looking at this the wrong way.
New research suggests that this plaquing is actually a very important antimicrobial peptide.
The immune system has two parts:
1. The innate immune system that you’re born with.
2. The acquired immune system that you develop over time.
But, the brain only has the innate immune system, and they found that the plaquing is an innate immune system reaction to a microbe. This reaction leads to neuroinflammation and collateral damage. This infection is typically subclinical and develops over time.
Key pathogens associated with Alzheimer’s disease:
• Herpes simplex
• Chlamydophila pneumonia
Some people may also have a gene susceptibility to Alzheimer’s disease. If someone has this gene, they may also be more susceptible to allowing the herpes virus to cross the blood-brain barrier.
Potential factors involved in Alzheimer’s disease prevention:
1. Supporting the immune system
2. Supporting the gut microbiome
3. Supporting healthy blood sugar levels
4. Consuming a keto diet
5. Avoiding alcohol and smoking
7. Consuming foods with antioxidants
8. Keeping stress low
9. Getting plenty of sleep
10. Avoiding harmful chemicals
11. Fasting (OMAD)
