06:54 Well, that’s what happens in Alzheimer’s disease. Think of an amyloid plaque like you would think of a white blood cell in the brain and if you go into destroy that amyloid plaque or get rid of it, maybe you’re just getting rid of the manifestation of the disease because the new prevailing perspective is
that amyloid plaque is a protective mechanism that your brain has developed in response to an insult and so we’d be so much better off to sort down sort out what’s why did the amyloid plaque form and eliminate that is the cause and allow the body to get rid of the amyloid plaque that settled down. Just like your white blood cell count goes down when your infection is resolved.
12:44 effects of epigenetics, above the genetics and I’ve used the examples and a couple of podcasts and you’ve read this before and you know I say this and you say it too. APOE, we do a lot APOE testing, which is the gene for Alzheimer’s and when people have a 34, or 44 a little typing, they are higher risk, much
higher risk than someone with a normal or more common as legal typing 33. But I have people in my practice that are in their 80s, early 90s with the 34 genotype who are sharper than I am on the same sense. I have people in their forties and fifties with the three, three non Alzheimer’s disease type with heart attacks, post CABG and brain issues. And so what you’re saying and what this study showed that, yes, your genetics may be this, but there’s still an influence from your environment and that makes genetics more like a light switch on a dimmer versus, “oh crap, mom gave me the Alzheimer’s gene. I’m screwed.”
22:46 There is a threshold of fat content that your brain has to have to even produce a neurotransmitter,
24:49 A really good thorough testing is going to look at metals, specifically copper and zinc levels and depending on the person’s history of exposure and employment or whether or not they’ve been a smoker or where they’ve lived in the world.
26:16 So I hope I didn’t get sidetracked in answering your question, but the point is that you have to really be thoughtful about looking at all of the things that stimulate Amyloid beta and address those items.
35:24 let’s say that the average person has this much memory function and you have this much memory function, you have this much more than the average. You could lose this much function and nobody would know because you have that much more capacity. Right? He’s a very high Iq. He’s very organized, he’s very methodical, and so I said the challenges that this gross testing that I do in my office, this just simple questions, you pass it like that. So you could walk out of here and say, “yeah, I’m fine,” but the truth is if you have that much more capacity than the average person and you’ve lost a little
bit, no one would know. We call that cognitive reserve.
41:39 So the point of getting a Cognoscopy is now you have a shepherd who’s going to focus on the squash and everyone has been so focused on every other organ from the thyroid down that we haven’t focused on the squash and now bringing people back to the Cognoscopy likely will drive success in other body
42:22 And so if you treat that neck up, the neck down responds positively. So powerful.
44:30 And then we do this over and over. So when you asked me what’s the role of diet and cognitive health, there’s no wonder that that cycle that is so prevalent in our society has made Alzheimer’s disease the third leading cause of death. And it is projected to be the number one cause of death in the short future. It will surpass cardiovascular disease and cancer, and so how important is diet will if we live that cycle, you are just taking out a guaranteed insurance policy that you’re going to get Alzheimer’s disease
And with that, you just summed up the recovery medicine. We meet you where you’re at, and I joke I’m not supposed to end a sentence with a preposition, but we do. We meet you where you are and because we can’t control your stressors are what you’ve been through in the past, but we can certainly help your mind and body. Heal all of them. So with the one goal in mind, quality of life, that’s what we’re after with RecoveMe medicine.
A TIP FROM TODAY’S SHOW: there’s still an influence from your environment and that makes genetics more like a light switch on a dimmer versus, “oh crap, mom gave me the Alzheimer’s gene. I’m screwed.”
